<<<I HAVE A LG WASHER THAT THE CUSTOMER IS COMPLAINING THAT SHE HAS TO EMPTY THE DRAIN TRAY AFTER EVERY WASH.SHE SAID SHE NEVER USE TO DO THIS AND IT STARTED ABOUT 2 MONTHS AGO>>>

 

**************

 

If the washer cycle ends---and there's water remaining in the tub (but no "OE" error is displayed)---replace the DRAIN MOTOR.

 

If the washer cycle ends---and the clothing is spun-dry---but the customer decided to "check" the Drain Strainer and low and behold---some water came gushing out (about 2-3 cups)---this is NORMAL.

Water must always remain in the Pump Housing---keeps the Drain Motor from damage if RUN/STARTED DRY.

 

If the washer cycle ends---and sometimes the load is spun-dry---but other times it is not---replace the DRAIN MOTOR.

 

If the washer cycle is *interrupted* periodically (shuts down) and displays an "LE" error---the incorrect type or amount of detergent is being used.


To eliminate:

Musty odor

L-O-N-G cycle times

Dingy/yellowing whites

Suds error message

Slow spin speeds

Intermittent water leaks (from rear of washer)

And other annoying symptoms which vary brand-to brand.

Read below:

The *correct* amount of HE (High Efficiency) detergent that should be used in any front load or agitatorless top load washer with tub sizes 3.0 cu ft and larger is as follows:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Wash Load

HE 2X: (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X: (1) Teaspoon

Perform a TUB CLEAN CYCLE every (4) months.

Use: "Tide Washing Machine Cleaner"
