LG Washing Machine Beeps [Issues & Solutions]

If your LG washing machine beeps and you don’t know what to do, you’ve come to the right place. In this easy-to-follow guide, we’ll be explaining the causes of this issue and giving you instructions on how to resolve them. So, without further ado, let’s begin…

LG Washing Machine Beeps And Does Not Spin — How To Fix

If your LG washing machine beeps and doesn’t spin it means something is preventing your washer’s drum from turning. Here are the things that could cause this issue…

1.Unbalanced Load In Washer’s Drum

Here’s how to fix an unbalanced load in your LG washing machine…

Step 1. Unplug your LG washing machine from its power source.

Step 2. Open your washing machine’s door.

Step 3. Make sure that the drum of your LG washing machine hasn’t been filled more than 3/4 of clothes. If the drum is overloaded, your washing machine will have difficulty spinning.

Step 4. Make sure to sit your LG washing machine on a firm, even surface. If the machine sits tilted at an angle, the load will be unbalanced. If you notice that the legs of your washer aren’t on the same level, use the spanner provided in your installation kit to adjust them.

Step 5. Spread the clothes evenly in your washing machine’s drum.

Step 6. Turn on your washing machine’s power supply.

Step 7. Try running a spin cycle to see if the issue has been resolved.

2.Water Is Stuck In Washing Machine’s Drum

If your LG washing machine is not draining water, here’s what you need to do…

Step 1. In order to avoid water leakage or electrocution, please remember to turn off your washing machine’s water and power supply before starting any repairs.

Step 2. Open the flap at the lower front section of your washing machine.

Step 3. Put some towels or old rags on the ground in front of your washing machine.

Step 4. Under the panel, you’ll find a short capped hose. Pull the hose out a few inches.

Step 5. Place a container under the hose.

Step 6. Pull the cap off the hose and let any water that may be stuck in your washing machine’s drum drain out into the container.

Step 7. Once all the water has drained out, put the hose’s cap back on and push the hose back in place.

Step 8. Turn the knob beside the emergency drain hose counterclockwise and pull it out of the washing machine (this is the drain pump filter).

Step 9. Take the filter to a sink and clean out any lint or debris that may have accumulated in it.

Step 10. Once you’ve properly cleaned the drain filter, put it back in place and turn it clockwise to secure.

Step 11. Close the panel.

Step 12. Turn on your washing machine’s water and power supply.

Step 13. Run a spin cycle to see if the issue has been resolved.

The procedure above is for front loader washing machine’s only. If your washing machine still doesn’t drain after cleaning the filter, you’ll need to replace the drain pump itself. Here’s how to do this…
