  1. Hi, I have a LG washer dryer, model number F1480YD, approx. 6 years old, which has become completely lifeless. It had been working fine until a few days ago when I tried to open the door when the machine was still in a cooling down phase at the end of a drying cycle. The door would not open because the interlock prevented its opening while the machine was still on. I must have done this dozens of times in the past with no harm done but on this occasion there was a "popping" sound from inside the machine, the entire front panel display (every led) briefly lit up and then went off. Sin
  2. Senior moment. Had the no drain Issue on my LG F12u1tcn4. Stripped it down to clean but appear to have lost the L/H side of the pump ( Viewed from the front) which is two wire from the machine so I belive only one pump which I have on the R/H side. What goes on the L/H side. Also the smaller diameter black hose is missing from the pump. Where does it go to? Speaking to LG support all they can now offer is an engineer visit. Decided to cut my losses and buy a new machine but would like to complete the repair and sell as referbished. Thanks
  3. Hi I have an LG washing machine which is about 13 years old now and not required any repairs until today. So I am very pleased with it on the whole. It is a model WM-14331FD but I think my question would apply to most LG models. Today the pump stopped working. I got the pump mechanism out and found there were 2 identical pumps, one for emptying the the machine and the other for spraying water back up to the top of the drum during some cycles. I applied power direct to the pumps on the bench and sure enough the emptying one was not working. Rather than just buying a new one
  4. Hi All, I have an lg washer dryer f1480rd and the washing drum will be filled up with water if I dont cut the water supply. The machine begins to fill up itself with water as usually, but wont stop entering that. The water level tube from the drum is not dirty and can be blown through. I hope its not the "ECU", the main electronic panel of the machine which has gone wring. Does anybody have any ideas? Thanks in advance Kind regards
  5. This isn't so much a question as a repair report, hope that's appropriate. I've spent the last couple of days exploring this machine which was making a very rough buzzing noise. Having decided that the problem was the drain pump (smelly water, washing wetter than expected, development of noise) I consulted youtube and various discussions for advice. There are quite a few vids and threads giving detailed instructions but all seemed to be discussing a slightly different model to mine and the disassembly for mine turns out to be much easier than most advice would suggest. If like me you
  6. Hello! I'm in desperate need of some assistance. Many thanks in advance if you take the time to read/respond. I have an LG WM2010CW Washing Machine. It won't drain. With a small load and full of water, I unplugged it for a bit and then plugged it back in. I then ran the Rinse/Spin cycle. There was already water in the basin before I started this operation. The first thing it did was spin intermittently. Then, it fully drained. Then it spun for a while. It then filled back up and with 12min remaining on the display, it stopped. The small light next to high was blinking and the beeper/
  7. Advice appreciated on whether it is worth repairing my 5 year old LG WD14316RD whose bearings have gone. The machine has been making a lot of noise and the drum is very wobbly so I think the problem is the bearings/ spider. I'm worried also that the outer drum may have been damaged as some plastic-y fibrous material which smelled electrical came out of the filter. We are heavy users of the machine (c. 12 times a week) and I'm worried it may have reached its 'natural' lifespan. Repairs would be 25-30% of the replacement cost (of a better, more efficient machine) - do you think this is worthwhil
  8. Hi, I'm hoping someone can shed a degree of light on what a noise might be - I'm planning on calling someone out over the next few days but thought I'd check to see if it was something common with LG Washing Machine and if there is anything I can check. Many thanks for having a listen! The noise occurs mostly near the start of the cycle and towards the end, always when the drum is turning/washing. However, there are also times when the drum is turning but there is NO noise - both clockwise and anti-clockwise. There is no extra noise when the machine is on the spin cycle. The machine is a
  9. Hi,my washing machine making strange buzzing noise I have no idea what it can be so maybe you can help me,here's video link- https://youtu.be/RaYXyqa8AJI .thanks
  10. Hi there I have purchased an LG F14220TDS washing machine which is now about 6 months old. I use mainly the 30 minute quick was for everything and it used to work perfectly. But now, it keeps stopping on 6 minutes whilst still full of bubbles. I have to turn the machine off and then on again to cancel the programme and then put it on a 22 minutes rinse and spin cycle to remove the bubbles and continue with the wash, which obviously defeats the object of a 22 minute wash. I called an engineer to look at the machine and he said it was because I wasn't putting enough washing in the machine, t
