Washer Repair / Re: LG washer displaying OE code
« Last post by leithouse on October 19, 2014, 08:33:26 PM »
I am a technician that repairs laundry equipment only.
Last week I replaced 3 LG drain pumps. If the machine is over 5 yrs. old suspect the pump first.
When you power up the washer hold the spin button a few seconds and you should hear the pump come on.
If you hear a rumbling sound it's probably the drain pump. Often the impeller will become loose or even break off of the motor. It may even drain the water out but that doesn't always mean the pump is good.
It is possible for an object to get lodged (coins, bobby pins, etc.) in either pump. Some LG's have 2 pumps, one to drain and one to recirculate. The drain pump is always on the left as you face the front of the washer. 90% of the time it's the drain pump.

MegaPro also makes this one:



which uses 'Quick Lock' bits (the same ones that work in impact drivers and other electric screwdrivers).

This is my 'go-to' screwdriver. I customized it with certain sizes of security tips. Got the extra tips from my Cully rep.

Here's the manual for the GE version of that machine. They're all pretty much the same.

Thanks for the recommendation, Bailey. I checked the drain line. It does indeed go the way you say it needs to.


Thanks again.

Sounds like your home plumbing is backing up one way or another.

When draining into a disposal, our building code here, requires an air gap for just this reason.I read that it is dirty water, but is it possible the dishwasher fill valve is not closing completely?

Glad you got it to work. When the drain line leaves the disposal, make sure it goes up before going down otherwise all the water that goes into the sink will happily run into the dishwasher. Including ground up food which could create a blockage.

Washer Repair / Re: Whirlpool washer will not agitate
« Last post by fairbank56 on October 19, 2014, 02:02:45 PM »

  Need to determine if motor is actually running when in agitation cycle. Place an inspection mirror under where the motor coupler is. If it's spinning and transmission input shaft is spinning, then the transmission is bad. You could also just take the motor out and rotate the transmission input shaft by hand CCW for agitation.
