Smoking LG WM8000
Posted 03 July 2013 - 08:01 PM
That washer was replaced with a new one, so of course, I again tried increasing the water level in the tub via the method above. And again, the amount of water increased, then started smoking, then died.
3rd new WM8000 being delivered tomorrow. Is there a safe way to increase the water level? My technique worked with no problems on a Samsung front loader, but this LG is killing me.
Any ideas, other than me not imposing my will on inanimate objects? Thanks

Let the washer do what it was designed to do, without changing it.

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. The machines today are all regulated by Obama standards. Any adjustment like you are talking about can bring said result. Manually add water? Open dispenser and add as needed maybe. Sounds like the only way to me. That's why I stick with my old top loader.
