if its leaking from the door, replace the boot seal. Anywhere else, you need to take the back and/or front off and find where it is coming from. The drain hoses or drum itself.

I am not a repair professional. I am just a 78 year old
man who has been making his own repairs for about
50 years. Therefore the washer or dryer ID doesn't
mean much to me. I came to fixya looking for a
schematic for an really old AM/FM radio and
discovered that more than 4,700 people were asking
for help with a washer repair. I recently had a washer
repair of my own and found an excellent video which
showed me how to take my machine apart. This
video made it possible for me to do my own repair. I
was so impressed with the video that when I saw all
these people needing help, I wanted to tell them
about it. If you have a top loader (washer) of the
direct drive type, this video might be a Godsend for
you. If you look at the back of your washer and the
panel is solid (no small inspection plate to remove)
chances are you have a direct drive and this video
is just what you need. You can see this video at
www.acmehowto.com You will probably need
more help in determining what the problem is and
how to fix it. If your repair problem is a washer or
dryer I suggest you go to www.applianceaid.com
where they have very good trouble shooting and
repair information on most washers and dryers.
I think you'll find what you need there. Don't worry
about the timer, they hardly ever go bad. Good
luck with it. If I have helped you, please rate my
advice on fixya.

There are 2 springs attaching the door boot. The springs are really tough but there are 2 separat tools for each spring. Use the tools to remove & install. It's tough but can be done.

Could be door boot seal check for rips

HI. This code represents a failed motor(hall sensor failure) Check the Motor harness for worn connections and separated wiring contacts. If the harness is connected properly, this will confirm motor failure. Replace the electric motor in this case.

LG WM-1832C... | Answered on Oct 17, 2009 | 639 views


HI. This is a door open error code. check the following to address this issue.
  • Door not all the way closed
  • Loose electrical connections at door switch and pwb assembly(Check the wiring hraness that is linking the door switch mechinsm to the PWB(main control)
  • Door switch assembly is out of order
  • Gasket on door may be creased in. If creased, try to straighten, so that the door will close evenly.

((Also, try to unplug the unit for five minutes if all the above dose not clear the code. If the unit continues to display the code after the five minute reset, replace the door switch mech))

LE code is overload on motor. This unit actually has a magneto and stator. This is what needs to be replaced. Usually find a magnet cracked.

HI, first, make sure there isn't anything preventing the actual door seal from forming a complete seal around the door frame. this can be caused be a creased section of the seal, or a piece of debris. if the seal is free of the above stated issues, in should be replaced asap.

I would also inspect the door alignment as well. if the door is slightly mis-aligned, this will prevent the seal from making contact with the door frame in a appropriate manner, in return, causing a slight leak during the wash.

If you have correctly selected rince and it doesnt rince, that part of the program is corrupt. Strangely enough, in S.Africa 90% of the washers with rince problems are the lg. Seen quite a few top loaders with this problem as well. There is no reason at all that once rince is selected it shouldnt work, except if faulty.. Only solution is to replace board if rincing to you is essential.

These washers use very little water. (about 2 inches in the bottom of the wash tub) The actual amount used will vary based on the volume of clothes and the type. (snythetic clothes do not absorb much water, but put in a load of cotton towels, for example, and the clothes absorb the water, causing the water level to drop, and the machine will add more water to return the level to the set point, which usually takes a several short fills, over a couple minutes)
To see that the clothes are indeed wet, just pause the machine a few minutes into the cycle. The door will unlock, and you can feel how wet they are. When the cycle completes, these machines spin so much faster (about twice as fast as most top loading machines) that the clothes feel very dry. (thus reduced drying time, and additional energy savings) Because of the lower water usage (about 12 gallons vs. about 45 for a top loader) make sure you only use 1 to 2 (max) tablespoons of HE detergent per cycle, and only 1 teaspoon of fabric softner if you use it. (don't use fabric softner on towels) Using too much addatives will cause odor issues, and possible performance issues.

This is a defective inlet assembly. i suggest testing the operational value of this device. if found to be defective after this test, replace it asap.

The water inlet valve can be identified by the water hoses connected to it at the back of the washer. Start by turning off the water supply at the valves on the wall. Disconnect both hoses from the back of the washer. Place the hoses into a bucket and turn them on to confirm that you are getting good water pressure and to clear out any debris from the line.

Inspect the filter screens on both the hoses and the inlet valve for debris build up. If you find any debris, clean it out. Use caution to avoid damaging the filter screens because the screens in the valve are not replaceable.

If debris was not present then proceed to the next step of testing the solenoids. Access to the valve may be easiest by opening the top or the back of the washer, depending upon make and model.

There are two wires connected to each solenoid on the water inlet valve. Label the wires and connections so that you can properly reconnect them later. The wires are connected with slip-on connectors. Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals ( Be sure to not pull the wires). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If either is corroded they should be cleaned or replaced.

Use a continuity tester or multimeter to test for continuity. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X1. Touch one probe to each terminal. A reading of infinity indicates a bad solenoid that must be replaced. Different brands and models will have various measurements, but the valve should show some resistance if it is functioning properly. Test the second one in the same way as the first.

The valve can also fail mechanically. So even if it passes the electrical test, it may still require replacement. If you have ruled out all other possibilities, go ahead and replace the valve.
