LG Washing Machine Fault Codes
The washer door is open.
Stop any active cycles. Check the door for any obstructions, remove any that are present. Open and close the door to make sure that it mechanically closes correctly. If the problem persists, then unplug the washer. Check the wiring from the lock/switch assembly to the main control board. If the wiring is okay then replace the door lock/switch assembly.
The detergent drawer is not closed.
This error occurs when the washer senses an open drawer door. First, close the door and start the cycle. If the door mechanically closes fine but the error persists, then unplug the washer. Inspect the wire harness that connects the electronic control board to the drawer switch for loose connections and reconnect if loose. If the wire harness is fine then replace the drawer switch.
The lid or door failed to lock.
Stop the cycle if it is running. Inspect the lid lock assembly and remove any blockages. If the lid is still locked, unplug the washer and check the wiring harness connection from the lid lock assembly to the electronic control board. If the wiring is okay then replace the lid lock switch.
EEPROM error on main electronic control board
Unplug the washer and wait five minutes. Plug the washer back in. If the error persists then the electronic control board will need to be replaced.
The clutch malfunctioned.
Unplug the washer. Check the wire harness connection between the clutch motor and the control board. If the wiring is okay then replace the clutch motor. If the problem persists then replace the electronic control board.
Stacking switch error.
The LG pedestal washer has a switch that indicates if it is correctly stacked on another LG appliance made after 2009. If this error occurs and the washer is properly stacked on another LG appliance manufactured after 2009, then first unplug the washer and inspect the wiring connection between the stacking switch and the control board. If the wiring is okay, then replace the stacking switch.
Water level error.
This is usually indicative of a stuck-open water inlet valve. If the washer is filled yet continues to add water, shut off the water supply and inspect the water inlet valve. If it cannot close then replace the inlet water valve assembly.
The washer isn’t filling or filled slowly.
If the washer fills slowly, first ensure that the hot and cold water inlet valves are set to the fully open position. Inspect the hoses for any kinks and remove any present. If the problem still persists, then close the hot and cold water inlet valves (shut off the water supply) and check the inlet screen for obstructions or clogs; remove any that are present. Check the inlet valves to ensure that they actuate correctly, replace any defective valves. If this doesn’t fix the problem, then unplug the washer and check the wire harness that connects the electronic control board to the water level switches. If the wiring is okay, then the electronic control board will need to be replaced.
The drive motor locked.
Unplug the washer. Try to manually spin the basket to ensure that it spins freely. If it cannot spin freely, then the basket’s suspension may need to be replaced. If it can spin freely, then check the wire harness connecting the basket drive motor to the electronic control board, correcting any loose wiring if found. Inspect the drive motor rotor and magnets for damage. Use a digital multimeter to check the resistance across the windings, these should normally read between 5 Ohms and 15 Ohms. Replace the motor if it is damaged.
Slow draining issue.
If the washer drains slowly then first check the drain screen and drain pipe for clogs. Find the drain hose and ensure that there aren’t any kinks in the line. If the problem persists then unplug the washer and check the connectivity of the wire harness from the electronic control board to the drain pump. Replace any faulty wiring. If draining is still slow, then the drain pump will need to be replaced.
Defective water sensor level.
First, unplug the washer. Then check the wire harness connection between the water level sensor and the main electronic control board, correcting any loose wiring connections. If the wiring is okay then replace the water level sensor.
The washer detected a washer failure.
If a power failure occured then the cycle did not properly complete. Restart the cycle once power is restored.
It is time for a scheduled tub cleaning.
This error indicates that the tub requires scheduled cleaning. Empty the tub of any contents, then mix one quart of water with 1/4 cup of bleach in the tub. Start the “Tub Clean” cycle. Note that this message will go away after a few wash cycles if the tub clean cycle is not performed.
The washer detected an unbalanced load.
This code occurs when there is an unbalanced load in the washer. Stop the cycle and remove excess garments. Redistribute the remaining garments evenly around the agitator. Ensure that the washer is level. Start the cycle again after the load is evenly distributed. Note that if the load is too small, then clothes may need to be added for proper balance. If the washer violently shakes and bangs during the spin cycle, then this may be indicative of worn suspension rods and spring assemblies. Replace these if the load continually becomes unbalanced during normal operation.
Chimes repeatedly before the final rinse
Normal operating sounds.
This is normal. The washing machine is indicating that liquid fabric softener may be added at this time prior to the final rinse cycle.
