SOURCE: washer doesn't work properly

insider tip, when you follwo the directions take has posted. remove the hose from the switch only. then turn the switch to the lowest setting then reconnect the hose. this will allow the unit to reset to proper levels. do not try to adjust the switch or the tub will overflow. if this hasnt resolved the issue. you may need to replace the switch which is what may be the original problem. simple access to the switch. there is a lock tab on side of the switch press it and unscrew the whole switch 1/2 turn(unplug wire harness) it will now pull out (remove thumbturn on outside first of course) then install and reverse the process for install, please mark how it will go back in cause you can reinstall it in the wrong position. also note you will have to unplug the wire harness gl k

Almost sounds like a timer or timer motor problem.  Could also be a loose wiring harness around the timer.  When you said it when into spin, but the next day, did the timer move at all during the "break".  Usually, a lid switch will give off that "tell-tale" clicking sound when lifting the lid.  See if it makes this noise, but it really doesnt sound like a lid switch issue.  Really sounds like a dead spot, or spots, in the timer.  Let me know.  Jim

SOURCE: F25 error code

Hello twelsh2

You said, you started my washer and after a few minutes I'm getting this F25 code. Water starts to go in but it never starts washing. Any thoughts?

This is what F25 is telling you.

If the control is unable to properly detect motor speed, the machine shuts down. If a failure occurs during high-speed spin, the door unlocks after 3 minutes.

Check and Repair
1. Verify the shipping system including shipping bolts, spacers and cables are removed.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power for 5 minutes (Rests the system)
3. Check wire harness connections between the drive motor and the Motor Control Unit (MCU), and between the MCU and the Central Control Unit (CCU).
4. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
5. Check the MCU by looking for operations of the drive motor.
6. Check the drive motor for powered rotations

If you can not find the fault , Please call service.

    I have a LG WD-1018C washer that wont spin out .. it just keep starting and stopping in about 30 second intervals ... an error code has just come up ... 1E ...can you help please ? Steve

    The IE or 1E error or fault code indicates that the washer is not filling with water. Check to be sure the water supply valves are open. Also, check to be sure the water supply hoses aren't kinked or clogged. Next, remove the hoses from the washing machine and run water into a bucket to test the pressure and flow of the water. If all of these check out and you have good water pressure and flow to the machine, you should replace the water inlet valve.

    I am working on an LG front load washer model number WM1812CW. It will go all the way through a cycle one time. The next time it will stop between the wash and rinse cycle with an error code of OE....

    Hi jerryleigers,

    The Drain pump is working intermittently. It is either overheating or a loose wire is present or it could even just be a faulty drain pump. I'd suggest removing it (Found attached to the lower sump hose), testing it by aplying direct power to the 2 pins (either way is fine, it works on an alternating current), run it for 5 to 10 min (turning it on and off every 30 seconds), if it is fine then it is a worst case scenario (PCB). If it is not running well, or it is not even starting - replace it, problem solved.

    Hope it helps :-)

    1 Answer

    Oe error code, cleaned filter, checked hose

    You might be using too much detergent and causing a sudslock condition. The machine uses very little water and any amount over a teaspoon of HE will simply cause the machine to lock down. An OE error means it took longer than 10 minutes to drain the tub. IF the machine is trying to correct a sud problem it will continually toss in more water till sudslock is corrected. Press and hold: SPIN SPEED & SOIL LEVEL buttons--then press POWER button.
    Wait for door to lock.

    Press the START button (6) times--this will fill the tub with hot water to the maximum setting when it stops filling.

    Press the START button two more times--this will enable the tub to tumble.
    After 3 hours--turn "off" the washer.
    Turn the washer back "on".
    Select the shortest wash cycle (usually "quick wash") and press "START". This will rinse out the tub.
    This method of "TUB CLEAN" is *not* from a service manual but has been the best method for cleaning out LG washers more than a year into incorrect detergent usage.
