LG WD 1481-RD Washer/Dryer. Why is it taking an eternity to wash?
It is taking at least 3 hours+ to do a small load of 3x pair of socks + Underwear, 1x Track pants.and 1 x cotton shirt. Not even sure if it would have ever finished if I didn't interrupt. Once it finishes the rinse, it goes into an eternal spin cycle at 1440RPM. Only way it finish the wash was to turn off, wait 5 minutes, choose spin only at 600RPM. When done, choose Dry only for 20 minutes. I bought this second hand and never had a front loader before. So, not sure if this is normal for a front loader. I get the feeling that it is not sensing the load correctly, as this machine is an automatic load sensing model.

The loading sensor is not working and control panel issues and there could be issues with the water inlet valve which does pull the water into the appliance for every cycle.A person that fixes washing machines would need to have a look at your washing machine to see what the problem is.

I see a little confusion here...there is LG WD-1280FHD which is the MODEL number, WD= washer-dryer, LG=Life's (not so) Good. The "F" is for Front Load... HD for dryer Heated Dryer. The numbers correlate to date and assembly plant location. IDK this other number your showing is a Part Number
Well I have a Roper Top Load Washer, bought it in 1998 ,no problems til back 6 years ago we had someone come fix it. My problem was the same wouldn't drain or spin. The problem was it was clogged, in the front when you lift off the washer casing theres a white piece connected to to tubes that drain. well there was my daughters pair of underwear in there and a couple small socks. He took them out put it back together and worked ever since. Until earlier tonight we had same problem so we took it apart ourselves and found my boyfriends sock in there took it out and put it back together and works great again. So far so good. Hope this helps Good luck. Tammy
I have the same problem and I'm really aggrevated that I paid alot of $$ for something that doesn't do the job it was purchased to do! I'm going to look at replacing it with a top loader. I think LG should take responsibility for selling a bad product.
OE means it has not fully drained with in 10 mins. You may have something in the drain. Open the little door on the front, ust the small hose to drain it first, then take out the button trap. If you don't see anything, you can also check your drain hoses and if you want tilt back the unit, support it with something and look in the bottom hose make sure you don't have a sock or something there.
Take the drain filter out and look inside the drain tube with a flashlight. Usually, you will find a small sock blocking the drain hose inside. If you can see it, you can use a coat hanger to pull it out.
