I contacted LG and they said the drain pump and the recirculation pump are the same thing.  I took it apart and the two motors clearly look different.  I'm trying to confirm if 4681EA2002H also fits for my LG wm2277hw washing machine. Can anyone confirm? Many thanks!  :)

Yes that is the correct pump. The service replacement is ok for both drain and circulation.

With all this talk about pump problems I have a question: Since you all are out working on all brands and type machines and seeing how different people use different brands of detergent, have you ever noticed there was a certain brand that was better on machine parts and one that seemed to be worse on them?


I can remember a guy working on a Kenmore machine for my Mom back in the 70's. The pump wasn't letting the water out which lead into the detergent talk. He asked her what detergent she used and she said Tide. He said that he had noticed over time that Tide seemed to be more harsh on pumps. He said his wife used Cheer because he had seen in other machines using Cheer that they seemed less  corroded and it seemed less harsh on parts.
Several years back my neighbor had a problem with her Kenmore which she used Tide w/bleach all the time. When the guy got it apart she said she was shocked how Tide had built up under the inside tub. She said the guy told her Oh, they all look like that. He then told her if she would use Wisk all the time she wouldn't have build up. I guess because it was liquid?? or because there was an ingredient in it that helps keep the tub clean.?


So, just wondered if any of you ever run into messes of built up soap, or any machines you could tell the parts looked worse than others due to using certain products.


Thanks!

This is an old thread but I hope someone can answer my question. My drain tube started leaking on my LG washer so after seeing a video I decided to replace it my self. My machine is only a couple of years old so I was surprised the tube had developed holes in it already. Oh well. The problem I encountered is that when I took it apart, the small air tube that hooks onto the top of the tube is not connected to the drain tube as you can see in the picture. But my new hose came with the hose so should I hook it up or leave it capped off on the tub like it is right now?  Thanks for any replies.

The original poster's issue of his customer's OE pump issue seems exactly like what I am experiencing with my LG WM2016CW.  When it runs without the error, the flow out the drain hose is solid and fast.  Every 4, maybe every 6th, maybe every 8th load (no real rhyme or reason) the machine will cease operation and display the OE error code.  As I am not an appliance repairman, I am not sure where to start with the siphon method of correction like the original poster described.  John
