LG Washer WM2032HW water circulation nozzle
« on: December 31, 2011, 07:44:02 PM »
I am getting no water through the spray nozzles internal to the drum.  Looking at the manual, it says the the circulation nozzle may become clogged and may need to be cleaned.  Any ideas how to do thi s without tears nj the whole washer apart?  No instructions whatsoever in the manual.

Thanks


Model WM2032HW

My pc has dozens of LG service manuals in it. The washers all seem to be basically the same.

I did watch the video, thanks, but nowhere does it show or mention the water circulation nozzle.  Still no clue where it is or how to get to it.

Sometimes you can clean the nozzle out from the inside. Just use a small screwdriver to scrape out the junk. If that doesn't work, remove the top panel and you can access the hoses to the nozzle from there. The nozzle will then just push out and you can clean it that way.

The easiest way is to remove the top panel of the washer and remove the hose leading to the spray nozzle.  Run the test cycle to activate the recirculation pump and let the water pressure push out all the debris in the hose line.  Be sure to have a large container to catch the water when it spits out the debris.

Thanks for the tips.  Took off the top panel and was able to trace the hose to the"nozzle".  Hose was fine but the nozzle was clogged which actually can be cleaned without removing the cover (just stick you're head in the tub and look up behind the gasket and it's right there.  Fished the whole line out to make sure and good as new. 

Thanks again to all for the help.  As an FYI, e-mailed LG customer service and got the following response (four days later).  Totally off the mark:

"The Inlet Filters on the back of the Washer will keep any debris or items getting to them that would clog it.

If the Washer is working then it needs Service. It's far more likely the Recirculation Pump is not working over the fact that the nozzle is clogged, in which case you will require Service."
