You can also buy new filters to replace the old inlet filters from Home Depot. They are not LG brand they are "generic" filters but they do work. LG does not supply these filters the only way to get them from LG is to purchase the entire inlet valve (keep in mind you have 2 hot and cold) to obtain these filters. You can call the parts dept 888-393-6484 and get the part numbers for these valves and a distributors phone number so you can purchase the valves from them. Hope this helps.

The steam will only run on certain cycles. If you look at your dial you will see a pink line which indicates which one. Your unit does have a recirculatting pump, maybe you are confusing the two. One way to check is to run a delicate cycle. During the operation press the wash/rinse and soil level buttons together. Hold them, a display will pop up with readings in the second coloumn, and second row it will display the tempurature of the steam generator in ceilsus. This will confirm whether or not it is on.

You may have a failed control board and it will need to be replaced.

Run an extension cord to another outlet and try it again.  Usually it's the plug that has the problem.

well..the parts manuals are hard to find from LG, since they are an Asian company. however, if you get the part number from the pump, you can enter that in Google, and you'll be amazed at how many options there are for this.

nope..same issues from my end. LG is really tight with their information, which is funny, considering how thin their service coverage is in US..

The model you have this listed under WM2688H (LG Steam Washer) a E1 Code Correct water level (246) is not reached within 8 minutes
after water is supplied or it does not reach the preset water
level within 25 minutes.
I suggest you
Check the screens in the water inlet valve for blockage

Your load is unbalanced, at least that is what is sounds like. Have you taken out all the shipping bolts?

These washers and dryers hold very little clothing, 3-4 pair of jeans or less if the person is really large and maybe three regular sized thick bath towels since they weight so much when wet. You must make sure you are not overloading your machines when in use.

Good luck and if you keep having problems I would take a look at the manual and call customer service to report this issue to them. Make sure you get a repair number for your records.

I do not have a solution, but have the same exact problem and would like to know if you ever found out where the thermistor is and if you were able to fix it.

Thank you,

just replace the motor. the brushes are inside the motor and if you dont know what you're doing you will end up replacing the motor anyway. if your machine agitates but does not spin its not the motor, be more specific about make and model and more specific info on the problem and we might be able to help

very unlikely it's the motor but could be the bearing is grinding or one of spyder bracket at back of drum has broken off. If you put it into spin with no load and just grinds then bearing is gone. if the drum wobbles and rattles then bracket is broken.LE code may or may not be related. Sometimes just plugging and unplugging the hall sensor at the back will eliminate the problem or just resetting it the way you did it. but if there's a real problem it will come back again.

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.

its best to get an engineer to the problem as it could be anything at all or just an alignment problem eric

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.
