One of the most common types of issues that can affect your LG washer is a clogged drain. If your LG washer has been running for some time without any problems, you may have had to call in a professional to help you fix the problem. If you can handle the entire LG Washer Drain pump repair on your own, but if you’re more experienced it might be better to let a person know what needs done so that you don’t ruin more than you do good.
The first thing that you will need to do when your LG washer starts to have trouble is getting it on its side and make sure that you have an opening that is big enough for you to maneuver it inside. You will also want to turn off the power to the washer and remove the battery from it so that it’s not accidentally turned on. Then you will need to carefully clean out the area where the drain is. Make sure that there are no dirt particles on the drain itself or else it will get clogged, which can cause even more problems.
Next, use an adjustable wrench so that you can get the drain closer to the top of the washer. You will also want to turn the drain valve up so that the water will drain to the drain that goes to the outside of the washer. Be careful with how much water that you allow to flow into the drain, as it is very easy to overfill the drain and cause problems with the washer, causing it to not work properly.
If your LG washer is suffering from a clog, then you’ll have to do a little digging to find the clog. Usually this isn’t going to be difficult, as clogs are located inside the drain itself, so make sure that you are using a flashlight in order to locate it. Once you have found it, you can simply take a pair of pliers and turn the drain valve up to open up the clog. Once the clog is gone, you can put in another drain.
If, however, the drain pump is clogged then you will need to get it to the nearest office to get it pumped out. If you don’t have access to a company that does this type of work, then you may have to go outside and clean it yourself.
One last piece of advice, before trying to do any of these LG washer drain pump repair tasks on your own, be sure to test everything thoroughly first. Even if you have no experience with this kind of repairs, never start the washer until you know what you are doing.
