20 Most Recent LG WM0642H Questions & Answers

If the washer won't spin the tub bearing might need to be replaced. This is a very involved repair and will require disassembling most of the washer. The manufacturer recommends that if possible the complete outer tub and bearing be replaced rather than attempting to replace just the bearing in the tub. If the bearing is bad the problem is going to get worse very quickly and so either the drum and bearing will need to be replaced or the washing machine.

When does it beep? When you say it runs ok, do you mean the
complete selected cycle? Have you turned off the signal?
Do you know how to enter diagnostics? The WM0642HW does not
have a error code history file. It can only display the current error.

washing machines are a hgigh demand water usage sytem anyway..I would use the regular water heater with the washer as it holds 40 gallons and most washers pump in a minimum 20 gallonson the low side..

YES YOU CAN RAISE THE WATER LEVEL ! Raise the top of the washer lid by removing the 4 dispenser screws. Push side of dispenser tabs to drop dispenser down off from lid. Using an opener or flat item, insert into lid front edge to depress inward the metal top hold down clip. Do the left side first then the right side. Raise the lid.You'll see the water level sensor switch on the inner cabinet upper right side. You will see a set screw for a phillips screwdriver. Slowly turn that screw CLOCKWISE about a quarter turn. With washer cylinder emply,and holding detergent dispenser assembly upright so it won't spill water into inner cabinet area, start the washer.You will see the water level rise to a higher set point than just to the edge of the gray cylinder baffels.I have set mine to fill to the edge of the rubber door seal. I wouldn't go any higher than that. I see no need for the water level going over onto the glass window area.Ever since i raised the water level so my clothing tumbles in water instead of wicking up water as before and only becomming fully saturated nearing the end of the wash segment. The new adjustment has ended all of the complaints i had earlier about this washer not cleaning or rinsing well. My laundry is clean the first time around and all my washer needed was a few more gallons of water to work with. LG themselves were of NO help when i called dozens of times before .They just gave me the run around and never a straight answer about the water level except nothing could be done, it was based on laundry load weight, too bad so sad. That was TOTALLY UNTRUE! I found out how to adjust it by another owner of the LG WM0642HW posting this info on how to raise the water level, and how to go about doing it.I've not had to do a single rewash since turning that water level switch higher.Honestly!

Hi slschaan,

I believe your PCB may not be working, but there is a test you can first perform.

Please do the following:

Test power to the Drain Pump, if no power is detected from the PCB to the drain pump when it should pump the water out, then the PCB is faulty. This can be the only likely cause.

Kind Regards

Nothing, if the door seal is damaged, it has to be replaced.

You may have a water valve issue. (leaking water past valve, allowing water to fill to higher than normal level) To unlock, try opening the access door at the bottom left on front of machine and using small hose there, drain water out of machine. If hose is plugged, you may have to unscrew big knob (with filter attached) to drain. When the water level lowers, door should unlock. (if washer is plugged in)

Just happened to me today! Exact same code. When I hold the button for 3 seconds it automatically switches to pre-wash. I have the LG wm2487hrma.

FE means overflow condition. That means sand or trash has gotten into the tube going from tub to water level switch. So find that hose and blow it out. Remove the standing water and retry.

LG washing machines indicating error code CL may have the child lock activated. Try holding down the temperature and eco/rapid options together to turn off child lock.

Could you please explain what you mean by "there is absolutely no aural sounds at all coming from the machine" you say it worked on all cycles, but then you seem to say it doesn't work at all, a little confused here?? One thing is for sure call Sears service and have them get back out and do the job right!!
