LG Steam Washer

I have had my LG Steam Washer for 1 1/2 years. Is steam suppose to spray from the nozzle at the top of the drum where the water spray is located? I can here the steam reservoir fill up and but I really never see steam spray into the drum. Is my steamer not functioning properly?

Many thanks,

Houston Steam Washer Owner

Oven doesn't give steam but it does reach the temp.how can i fix that?

First locate the water solenoid valve. Disconnect the water line to the inlet side of the valve to make sure water is getting to the valve. Once that's verified, disconnect the outlet side of the valve. Activate the steam and verify that the valve opens and there's a good amount of water coming out of the valve. If no water comes out. Verify that the coil is getting energized with the correct voltage. If the correct voltage is present and you have no water coming out. Replace the solenoid. If everything is working then remove the left panel inside the oven to check for blockage in the steam manifold. The manifold consists of a pipe with several spray nozzles that spray water on rebar. Remove all the nozzles and activate the steam. Do this several times to purge any rust or debri. Clean the nozzles and replace them. You should be good to go.

Steam nozzle

Yes, it's OK to work without steam function. Actually, it is not a real hot steam. It just spray the water.

Steam nozzle not working

Check the end of the steam valve, if that is not blocked, check where the wand connects to the valve, on some models they inserted a teflon piece that was supposed to hep the machine with steaming but that gets blocked, remove and throw away.

Heats up and produces steam but the release button does not open the flow of steam.

To remedy this, I did the following:
1) Removed screws from: a) Lower area of handle (1 screw), b) Top of steamer, under round rubber flap around fill hole (2 screws), c) Front of steamer where nozzles attach (2 screws)
2) Removed back of handle, top of steamer, front of steamer where nozzles attach 
3) Once all parts are removed, you can see a brass button that is pushed by the trigger
4) Using a needle-nose pliers, grasp and rotate the button several times in both directions (you may hear it cranking against the interior spring). Do this until it turns fairly easily with the pliers.
5) Once this is done, you fill find that the brass button can be very slightly depressed with a bit of force. You may also need/want to unfold a large paper clip to push into the nozzle hole to help unsticking the brass button (not sure if that helped in my case, but it was something I tried along the way). When the brass button moves in and out (again, it won't move much), the steam release mechanism is unstuck!
6) Reassemble all parts (everything snaps back neatly into place).
This worked for my unit!

No steam release

I solved the problem, the metal (hot!) release rod gets stuck & needs a little push.
Unfasten the top by prying off the rubber gasket after removing the top. Remove the 2 small phillips screws, then remove the front that holds the nozzle, & remove those 2 phillips screws.
Carefully pry up the top with a putty knife, inside you will see the tip of a metal piston that the plastic release knob is supposed to contact. Set it on its front, & soak the piston with a light household or sewing oil, giving it a few taps with a blunt object occassionaly to loosen, heat up & test before reassembling, but remember, the piston is very hot. When you push on the piston with a screwdriver, it should release the steam, but also stop when you let go. Work with it a little & it will come back to life.
