Are you encountering code errors on your LG washing machine? Does your LG washing machine beep right after you press the start button? It sounds like you need to restart your washing machine.
Resetting your washer can return circuit functions to factory settings. Frequent use of the washer can sometimes lead to information buildup in the circuit. By simply rebooting the machine, you are getting rid of the accumulated data.
But before you reset your washing machine, make sure that the error codes are really caused by faults in the circuit and not an external problem.
Do not overload the washing machine drum. LG washing machines are very sophisticated. Modern ones can detect when there is too much charge inside the drum. Also check the power supply. Be sure to connect the machine directly to the power outlet. This machine needs a good voltage supply. The use of extension cords can cut off the flow of power.
Checking the water flow doesn’t hurt either. When dirt has accumulated in the water filter, the water cannot pass through easily. Since these have timer settings that allow the machine to fill with water at a specific time, high water pressure is needed.
Follow these steps to reset your LG washing machine:
Step 1: Unplug the washer. Let sit for a couple of minutes to allow undercurrents to die down.
Step 2: Slowly remove the washing machine from the wall. If you have rough floors, you may want to “walk” the washer forward by lifting end after end. Be sure not to disconnect the water hose connection at the back.
Step 3: Open the washer door and use your hands to manually rotate the basket. If you are using a top loader, you must hold the agitator firmly and rotate it. You can’t really turn it perfectly, but you have to manually turn it as much as you can. Do this step three times to allow the machine to restart its functions. Be sure to rotate the front load basket about 360 degrees to allow the reset functions to take place.
Step 4: Put the washer back in place and cap it. Check the water hose if it has been disconnected.
Step 5: Now try to run a test cycle. The machine should work perfectly fine now.
Now that you know how to reset your LG washing machine, you should be able to fix the code error issues on your own.
