LG Washer Machine Troubleshooting

LG Washer Machine Troubleshooting. If your washing machine has a lot of years on it, you better expect some problems to arise.

However, if the washing machine is relatively new, but the problem persists, there might be an underlying issue that warrants delving deeper into it.

There are many top-rated front load washers out there, and one of them happens to be LGs.

However, consumers have been reporting more than their fair share of problems when it comes to this specific brand of washing machines. They’re good otherwise, though.

LG Washer Machine Troubleshooting

In this article, we discuss how to troubleshoot some problems with the LG washer machine.

The LG Washer Will Not Spin

The motor coupling allows the motor to interface with the transmission of the washing machine so that it can work.

If the laundry capacity exceeds what the machine is supposed to handle, then the motor coupling will fail to protect both from an overload.

The motor coupling will also fail due to normal wear and tear. Inspect the area around the motor coupling where it’s connecting to see if there are any cracks or if anything else appears defective.

In case there are problems, go ahead and replace it as soon as possible because, without that connection, you won’t be able to operate your machine as expected.

The clutch assembly connects the transmission to the inner tub. Its job is to slowly increase the range of speeds in which the tub can “connect” with the transmission as it gradually increases in speed.

If you’re experiencing a problem wherein your clutch doesn’t seem to be working, there are a few things you should do.

The only way to determine this is by replacing it, or taking yours off and taking it to a mechanic and having him inspect it for wear.

LG Washer Will Not Agitate

The drive block transfers the transmission’s rotational movement to the agitator’s linear movement.

The drive block is responsible for sculpting your business model into a beautiful piece of art that will start turning heads.

If anything goes wrong with your technologically advanced equipment, it may result in major damage to your precious business model.

When you’ve got big dreams on the horizon, you need every detail to be checked and double-checked to not have any surprises crop up when they are least expected.

The rotor assembly of magnets interacts with the ones on the stator to create an electromagnetic field. This electromagnetic field moves the tub in both clockwise and counterclockwise directions.

If either of these magnets is broken or defective in any way, it could hamper the creation of this electromagnetic field, and as a result, no movement would occur/the tub might not move at all.

To check whether or not either of these magnets is faulty, inspect them for damage.

LG Washer Will Not Drain

Some washers are fitted with a coin trap, which is designed to prevent coins or other foreign objects from going down the drain.

Most coin traps are attached under the tub lip on the right side of the machine, towards the back.

It’s important to check and clean this area periodically because if your machine’s coin trap becomes clogged it won’t be able to drain properly.

Again, anything that goes down your drain should be disposed of safely so that it doesn’t end up linting up your laundry machines’ parts as well.

First, unplug the drain hose from the bottom of your tub and check to see if it is kinked, twisted, or otherwise broken.

If it’s snagged, remove it and test for any breaks in the line and replace it (if necessary). Then, drain water from your tub by removing the plugin from the bottom of the tub itself.

Also, check to see if there is any standing water. If there is standing water lying inside of your tub that you are unable to eliminate on your own with a simple plunger, send over someone from maintenance who can fix it their way.

LG Washer will Not Start

It blows the line fuse when the washer circuits are overloaded. The washer won’t start if the line fuse blows. To determine if the line fuse is at fault, use a multimeter to test it for continuity.

If you determine that it does not have continuity, you know there is an issue and can begin testing components on your circuit board.

We suggest going down in order of priority to test those components that seem like they might have been affected first. Check for shorted-out wires, motor, or drain pump.

There’s no need to buy new fuses every time one burns out when there are issues with other things in your circuit – so make sure to check those as well.

The thermal fuse will blow if the washer is overheating. A blown line fuse will prevent the washer from starting.

To figure out if a thermal or line fuse has gone bad use a multimeter to test it for continuity. If either doesn’t have continuity replace them as they are probably out.

Also, look into the faulty part until you find out what caused that specific area to go down and fix it before replacing one of these two parts again as once you fix the issue both should be good.

LG Washer Makes A Loud Noise

The pulley in the drive train on your vacuum may not be working correctly. This can cause the floor to be uneven as well as inadequate suction.

Check to see if there is damage or wear on the part of the vacuum that spins while vacuuming. Repair or replace this part if needed

The tub bearing is located in the center of the outer tub. The tub bearing helps the inner tub spin smoothly.

Replacing the tub bearing requires more than normal disassembly and will require replacing the outer tub and bearing if either one has malfunctioned.
