LG washers are known for reliability and offer many convenient features. But over time, wear and tear can cause washer parts to break, putting the washing machine out of service. When this happens, you can depend on Sears PartsDirect to have the parts and expertise to help you repair the washer so your laundry doesn’t pile up. We have the genuine LG replacement parts to help you fix your washer.
Most LG washers signal an error code when a component fails and the washer can’t complete the washing cycle. The error code often points you in the direction of the failure.
IE. You see this code when the washer isn’t filling with water. Check the water supply faucets behind the washer to make sure they’re open. If the water supply valves are open, you may need to replace the inlet water valves to fix this failure.
OE. Drain problems cause this code to appear on the display. Check the house drain for a clog. Check for a kinked or clogged drain hose. If the drain path is clear, you may need to replace the drain pump.
dE. Check the door lock assembly when you see this code appear. The control senses that the washer door isn’t shut. If this code appears even though the door is fully closed, it’s likely that you have to replace the door lock assembly.
How to maintain your LG front-load washer
Your LG front-load washer can last for many trouble-free years if you follow these maintenance tips.
Clean the liquid dispenser drawer. The dispenser drawer compartments have standpipes that help keep additives such as bleach and fabric softener inside the drawer until they need to be dispensed at the right time during the cycle. Residue can clog standpipe holes and prevent the laundry products from dispensing correctly. Clean the dispenser drawer every 6 months or so to keep detergent, bleach and softener flowing smoothly into the tub during the cycle.
Wipe the door boot. The rubber door boot can get moldy and begin to smell bad if you don’t clean it regularly. Wipe the door boot with a diluted liquid chlorine bleach to prevent mold and smells. Leave the door open when not doing laundry to prevent mold.
Check the fill hoses. A cracked washer fill hose can quickly flood your home and cause tremendous water damage. Check your washer fill hoses yearly and replace any fill hose that shows any signs of cracking.
Clean the washer tub. Every few months, run the Clean Washer cycle to flush residue out of the washer tub. Add bleach during the Clean Washer cycle if you notice a moldy smell coming from the washer.
Clean the drain pump filter. Front-load LG washers have a drain pump clean-out filter that you need to empty out at least yearly. If the washer seems to drain slowly, check that filter for debris such as lint or coins. Follow the instructions in your owner’s manual to clean the drain pump filter.
