Top 5 Common LG Washer Problems


These LG washing machine malfunctions are common in both the front load washers and the direct driver washers. You can find common LG washer issues and basic troubleshooting tips in the manufacturer’s manual you get when buying your new LG washer.





1. LG Washer Won’t Start

This is among the top LG top load washer problems. If you have been trying to turn on your washer, but the machine seems dead, here are the possible culprits:

  •         Cord is unplugged or damaged
  •         Popped fuse
  •         Damaged breaker panel
  •         Lid or door open
  •         Washer needs a hard reset
  •         Disconnected water supply
  •         Washer control board defective
  •         Faulty wiring and surge protector
  •         Error displayed on your screen


If the cord, fuse, breaker panel, surge protector, and wiring are faulty, they need to be repaired or replaced. You’ll need an experienced LG washer repair technician to do it quickly and efficiently. If the lid/door is open, close it, and if there is no water, turn on the supply. Error codes can be cleared with the help of the manual, but if you’re unable to do it, call (647) 477-0799, and our technicians will help you clear the errors.

2. LG Washer won’t Spin

Is your washer filing properly but failing to start or complete a cycle? It’s possible that the problem might lie in the drainage system or the spinning mechanism since they are both connected. If you’re wondering what might be the causes, here is a list of common culprits that will inhibit your washer from spinning:

  •         Pump filter may be blocked
  •         Hose running from the drum to the pup may be blocked
  •         Worn-out motor’s carbon brushes
  •         Faulty motor capacitor
  •         Belt from the motor to the drum may be snapped, worn-out, or come off
  •         Something (an object) is interfering with the rotation
  •         Over-loading or less load (may cause imbalance)
  •         A faulty door/lid
  •         Faulty sensors


If the load is small, try adjusting it or putting more laundry to reduce the imbalance that may cause sensors to inhibit spinning to protect your washer. All the other issues that might cause your washer to stop spinning need a technician to fix or replace work-out or damaged parts.

3. LG Washer won’t drain

A washing machine that fails to drain water won’t do your laundry. You need to get it fixed up and running to clear the load of undone laundry in your house or washing center. If your washer won’t drain, here are the common reasons why Washer won’t drain:

  •         You selected the wrong cycle
  •         There’s a clog in the drain system (either in the filter or branch pipe)
  •         Drain hose is clogged
  •         There’s an issue with the draining pump. You’ll know this if it’s noisy or won’t turn on (a small object may be caught up here)


Select the right cycle, and your washer will start spinning. Check if the drain hose is clogged and clean it up. Open the front panel and check why your pump is not working. If you find unwanted objects, remove them. If it’s permanently damaged, you need a repair technician from RA Appliance Repair to replace or repair it. Always make sure you run a cleaning cycle once or twice per month to clear dirt off your washer.

4. LG Washer is Noisy

A noisy washing machine makes your house or washing station inhabitable due to noise pollution. Loud strange noises are some of the top LG front load washer problems. If your LG washer is making strange noises like jarring, knocking, squealing, rumbling, banging, bumping, scratching, and screeching, you need to have it checked by a professional LG washer repairman. Likely causes of a noisy washer include:

  •         Unwanted objects like coins and debris in your washer
  •         Unbalanced load
  •         Your washing machine isn’t level
  •         Worn-out seals and bearings
  •         Faulty motor


Make sure you put the right size of load into your washer to avoid imbalances. Use a level to ensure that all washer wheels are touching the ground evenly. Empty your pockets whenever putting clothes in the washer to remove any metallic or plastic object. Call a repair technician at (647) 477-0799 to replace the faulty motors, worn-out seals and bearing, and any other broken part that may cause noise. 

5. LG Washer is Leaking

A leaking washer can turn your clean environment dirty and smelly. If you don’t want to do extra cleaning work after doing your laundry, you need to get your leaky washer fixed before the next cycle. Here are the common reasons why your LG washer is leaking:

  •         Water pressure is too high
  •         Build-up of un-dissolved detergent
  •         Worn tub seal
  •         Blocked, loose, or damaged drain pipe
  •         Damaged drain pump
  •         Worn/torn door boot
  •         Washer over-filling issues
  •         Too many suds and surge in power supply causing the motor to spin out of control


Reduce excess water pressure to at least 20 psi for the water inlet valve to function properly. For the rest of the worn-out and damaged issues that may cause a washer to leak, you need a repair specialist to replace or repair the faulty parts.
