Question about LG WD-3243RHD Front Load Washer / Dryer
I recently installed a new garbage disposal, and it seems to have caused two new problems. The garbage disposal works, as does the water going to the sink and the bathroom. I followed the instructions exactly (or so I think) when installing the disposal. However, now
1) The washing machine, which is located in the kitchen, next to the sink, only makes it about 10 minutes into the cycle before making a grinding sound. The door locks. To restart, I have to drain the water from the drum using the drain at the front bottom of the machine. Once I drain it, it works again for about ten minutes and then everything starts over. The Washing machine is an LG WD-3243RHD or LG WD-3245RHD. It is not connected directly to the sink or garbage disposal, but I am sure there is a connection somewhere.
2) The dishwasher does not work - though the power turns on and it makes noise, it sounds like the water is not making it into the system. It is connected to the garbage disposal. I did remove the plastic (with a hammer) between the line that goes to the dishwasher and the garbage disposal. I haven't tried the dishwasher after emptying the water from the washing machine.
Can anyone help? Thanks for any information that you can provide.
Does not sound like these problems are directly related to the disposer. Grinding sound is most likely the impeller on the washer's pump. The washer gets to the first pump out and is unable to pump due to bad impeller or an obstruction. Bad impeller means replace pump motor. (not very hard) Check water supply to dishwasher. Valve turned off or line kinked? Filter screen at solonoid valve plugged?
