  1. I recently purchased a new LG washer & dryer, could really use a guide to help me get started with my new toy!! Im loving it!!!

  2. If pressing the Pause / start button doesn’t work then i run a spin cycle for 15 mins after the Drying cycle when i want to open the door of the washer/ dryer.

  3. tE1, tE2, tE3 – chyba termického čidla – nutná výměna, součástka se pohybuje do 300,- Kč, ale je nutno v mnohých případech rozebrat půlku sušky. Zobrazením této chyby může být i přerušen vodič ve svazku nebo studený spoj na konektorech. Pro šikovné kutily práce na cca hodinu. NENÍ NUTNO VYHAZOVAT CELOU ŠUŠKU !!! Z důvodu úspory času, servisáci často hlásí tento problém za neopravitelný.

    WT5480CW. Can’t find what this code means in the manual can you tell me what it means

  12. My LG washing machine shores an error code FE. What does this mean and how to fix it? Thank you for any help you can provide.

  13. My washer dryer combo is coming up with error DE, but water is going through the line. Is there anything else I could do to fix this error? My machine still has water in it.

  14. My front loader often has Err 37 half way through a wash. The only thing i can do is turn it off and back on again. Anyone know what this means? I’ve searched this code but can’t see it anywhere online

    • I have the same error. Did you ever get an answer? The dryer seems to run ok but about every 3rd time I use it.

      • Hi, sadly no replies other than yours (thanks). LG want me to send a video of the problem to try to trouble shoot as they didn’t seem to know either.

  15. What does the error code dE mean, m’y washer gives that code sometimes when I start the washing process.

  16. My washer shows the code FE. The washer runs and disburses water constantly it also drains the water but not as needed,
    the timer does not work properly, the machine may be running for 15 minutes and it only shows a change of 5 or some minutes.

  17. My machine does wash halfway but does not finish, it does not rinse, it releases/ drains the water completely and stops , whats the issue.?

  18. My new LG 7.5 front loader will not allow me to select a cycle and displays – – – when it finally turns on and stops “singing” at me. What does this mean? I am unable to turn the wash selection dial to select any other programs from the default cotton and it won’t activate that wash when I press start. There is no error code with this – – – on it. It previously was working fine for the last 2 weeks (brand new). All ideas on this problem appreciated. Thankyou.

  19. My LG gas dry flashing check filter. Took apart and cleaned put it back together and still flashes. Put it in maintenance mode it flashed IR95 which I think means clogged filter. I clean the back out and check the whole pipe all the way outside. It also flashed UO1 I can’t figure out and D03 which I think is the door. I reset the switch between the wires replaced pipe. Put back together and everything is the same. Help error code UO1 dO3IR95 Gas LG dryer

  20. The Power source went off. Now all it does is a weird sound and the play logo is on. No other button or comand works. I have unpluged it then replug…still the same

    Model is WFT7061DD. Control panel I cant change anything please help.

  22. This article about LG Dryer Error Codes and Resolutions is really helpful! I just experienced an issue with my LG dryer and had no idea what the error code indicated. I was able to figure out what was wrong and fix it myself thanks to this blog. Even for someone like myself who isn’t very good with appliances, the explanations and solutions are simple to grasp.
