LG WM2501H Front Load Stacked Washer/ Dryer - Answered Questions & Fixed issues


use a meter and check ur water pressure switch? that is what sends the machine the message to start wash cycle? You can test it with a meter and with a manual test? ( first locate it in the panel, it has a plastic clear tube hose going into it, remove that tube from its connection, now put another small tube or hose into the slot where it was and have the machine set to wash cycle with water in it. Blow into the other end of the tube. If the machine starts to wash. the pressure switch is more than likely good. now take the original hose tube and plug one end and blow into it the other end, it should be hard and have pressure, if it is easy to blow and u dont feel any pressure and it feels like the air is going out ?
sometimes they get busted open or a pin hole and release air causing the water switch diaphram to not open.
If both check ok then next CHECK the motor coupler or belt if belt driven.check with a multi meter for continuity the door switch, and if there is a little movement on wash cycle in 1 direction only then check the cam dogs in agitator.


No spin, try these:

Using a multi meter check for continuity the door switch, which when bad may not allow agitation or spin. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically.

Check the clutch, brake assembly and transmission, one way to check for slipping is to get under the machine after a spin cycle ( this is if u get a lil spin but not much leaving clothes still wet) mix in a spray bottle a lil water and some dish detergent, then spray it on the clutch assembly ( the metal round pc. Connected to the tranny) if it sizzles and steams up then u know its bad and slipping. Another way to check clutch if u get no spin at all? Is to take it out and use ur hand to try and turn the inner spring assembly pushing it around the inside? If its very easy, it BAD should be hard to push by hand.


Next check the motor coupler which engages the tub and tranny to the motor. ( if its bad u usually get no wash or spin or very little of either)

Next check for a loose, worn or broken belt if belt driven.

On some front load models u may need to check the STATOR assembly.
The stator is essentially one half of a motor, it interacts with the tub by creating a strong electro-magnet. If the stator burns out the washer won't spin or agitate. Check the stator for continuity. This part is often misdiagnosed.

I have the same problem but my interior drum light stays on whether door is open or closed; in either case the control panel becomes in-operable after about five minutes. I unplug the machine for 5 to 20 minutes then plug it back in and it is powered "on" the moment I plug it in (i don't even have to push the power button). Then the light remains on but i am able to operate the control panel so i can do a load of clothes. Then if the machine sits idle for no more than five minutes, the control panel becomes in-operable again and the interior drum light stays on.

Any one have a clue???

I am having this same issue. I have to unplug and replug back in every wash. Very annoying. Especially because I am short and can't reach the plug without a step stool.

This dE error or fault code to indicate that the door is not latching properly. Check the lid or door operation to be sure it's not binding and that the door alignment is correct. Also, check the door/lid hinges to be sure they're not binding. Finally, make sure the door catch is in place and not broken. You may need to replace the door hook/catch or the door lock assembly.

There is no need to raise the water level. all modern washers automatically add the amount of water needed to wash the amount of clothes that you put in, I could explain how, but it will put you to sleep. rest assured these machines pretty much look after themselves. I would be more interested to know why you think it needs more water, are you having rinsing issues? wash quality issues?

Remove the screws that attach the top panel at the back of the machine, slide the top backwards and remove the top panel.
Run the machine as per normal, but be careful as the electrics will now be exposed, you will be able to see where the water is leaking from and be able to repair/replace defective part.

There probably isn't one. If you are certain power is getting to the machine, there may have been control failure.

LG WM Washing... | Answered on Apr 25, 2016 | 95 views


2 possible causes
the water solenoid control valve is split in the diaphragm and not stopping the water
the small hose from the base of the tub to the level control pressure unit is split or disconnected or the pressure unit has failed and is not activating the water control valve

Take out the soap drawer and clean the fabric softner compartment. This happens when there is residues left. And it gets clogged up.

The obvious question is how do you know that it is soap? What washing machine is it? The biggest problem with most washing machines is that people use too much soap to begin with. I would go to a store and get a new t-shirt or something. Run the machine with nothing in it. Then put the shirt in and run it again without adding any soap. When it is done check the shirt for soap. There could be a build up on the inside of the drum.

Please do not do another load of wash until this problem is fixed, or you may find yourself with a house/apartment fire!
I am thinking your motor (most likely) or the controls (least) have a short, and are causing your problem.
Oh, yes.
Take a really good look at the circuit breaker box inside, because a broken or loose ground wire ( there are two) can also cause this problem.
One ground wire should be white, one should be bare.
Each should be securely screwed into the lugs of the grounded section of the circuit breaker box.
God bless your efforts.
