Fixing the problem
It is necessary to start with a small but obligatory cleaning. The LG washing machine accumulates quite a lot of dirt during prolonged use. First up is the garbage filter. There is nothing complicated about it, if you read the instructions in advance.
After cleaning the filter it is necessary to restart the machine, and if the error repeats again, then it is worth to deal with the problem. If the soapy water remained in place, you need to check the absence of clogging between the siphon, where the drain fits and, in fact, the filter of the washing machine.
Quite often the drain from the washer does not go to the siphon, and is inserted directly into the sewer, in this case it is necessary to check this place. Especially often the clogs appear there.
Try disconnecting the drain hose from the machine and running water through it, if it does not pass or does it with difficulty, then most likely there is a clog inside, which should be cleaned, for example, using a wire with a hook. If the hose is clean, it is necessary to search further.
Many experts recommend listening to the operation of the drain pump. All machines from this manufacturer have a fairly noisy drain pump, and if the washing has ended, and it did not make a sound, then the problem is detected.
Trouble can hide in a broken controller or water level sensor. In either case, you will most likely need to seek help from a specialist. When testing the washing machine with your own hands, you can completely “burn” all the contacts on the board and power unit, which will lead to large financial costs.
