My Lg washer Wont spin and is not draining. If I told you how common this service call is in the appliance repair filed today, you more than likely would not believe me. Fixing an LG washer whether with the proper guidance is crucial. Without it further damage could occur.
Your Lg washer just finished it’s cycle you walk into the laundry room open the door and clothes are soaking wet and water is still inside the washer. You set the washer to drain/spin and at the end of that cycle same thing. This means one of two things usually, the drain motor is clogged, or the washer drain motor is faulty.
How Do I diagnose my LG washers drain pump you ask? Let me explain to you How To:
Set the washer to a drain/spin. On LG washers this is done by pressing the spin button after the washer is first turned on. Pressing the spin button on the front of an Lg washer should program the washers main control to a 14 min drain spin cycle. When the 14 min cycle is displayed press start. This will automatically send voltage to the drain pump and a slight hum or buzz should be heard. If this is the case good. The drain pump is probably clogged and you can repair it yourself.
If you where to pull the drain pumps filter out with the washer full of water, all of the water would rush out through the pump. Bailing the water first is a must. Lg has placed a small drain pump relief hose in the access panel, wonder why? Either bail the water out or get a bucket and drain the washer from the pump relief hose. To access this hose remove the front cover on the washer lower front panel, a small screw driver may be necessary to get to the hose and filter.
With the drain pumps access panel removed the hose and filter head will be visible. After you have either bailed or used the provided drain hose to remove the water the filter will need to be removed. To do so twist the filter head counterclockwise and pull the filter out. What you see might surprise you! Unfortunately, I’m not surprised any more! Money, undergarments, under-wires, you name it I’ve seen it in a washers drain pump.
