LG circulation pump

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I have an LG direct drive steam washing machine. It is making noises that would indicate the circulation pump is at fault. 

I have contacted a local repair man, who insists he can disconnect this pump, stop the noise, and save me money. I’m obviously wary of his, as surely it wouldn’t have a recirculating pump if it didn’t need it? 

Can anyone help me out, would disconnecting it stop th steam function from working? He said to me, do you use it? “No” and insinuated I don’t need the function anyway

what should I do? I feel stuck as I know nothing about washing machines!!


many thanks

I’ve not heard of anyone doing this but theoretically the washing machine would still work. The circulation pump is there to compensate for the washing machine using less water. It showers the laundry with water on wash and rinses to help wet them more in less water  

Therefore I would expect the quality of washing and rinsing to be adversely affected without it.
