  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.

      • You have to open the little swivel hatch/door located near the base of the machine, drain the water left in the drum through the small rubber drain hose by removing its bung/plug, remove the filter by unscrewing it from the drain outlet of the machine, and remove any lint or other loose items such as coins (forgotten in pockets for instance), buttons, etc that may have clogged the filter. Replace filter, and restart.

  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.
