LG Washer Not Draining? Try This…

In this blog post, we will discuss some of the most common causes of an LG washer not draining and how to fix them. We will also provide tips on how to prevent these problems from happening in the first place. If your LG washer won’t spin out all the water, or your LG washer won’t drain, try out the following troubleshooting tips.

Kinked or Clogged Drain Hose

If your LG washer not draining is causing a problem, check for kinks in the drain hose. If there are any kinks in the hose, it can stop the water from draining properly.

To check for kinks: Unplug your washer and remove the drain hose. Straighten out the hose and check to see if the water drains freely. If there are any kinks, remove them and plug in your washer again.

Remove any clogs from the drain hose: If the water is not draining because of a clog, you will need to remove the clog before you can continue troubleshooting. To do this, unplug your washer and remove the drain hose. Use a plunger to clear any clogs that may be blocking the drainage path. Make sure the plunger fits tightly over the drain opening and plunge up and down for several minutes. Once the clog is cleared, reattach the hose and plug in your washer.

Dirty Coin Trap or Pump Filter

If your LG washer won’t drain, it’s possible that the coin trap or pump filter is dirty.

To check and clean the coin trap: Unplug your washer and remove the drain hose from the back of the machine. Locate the coin trap on the front of the washer and remove it. Clean out any debris that may be blocking water drainage. Replace the coin trap and reattach the drain hose to your machine.

Pro-Tip: If you have a top-loading washer, the coin trap is located on the back of the machine.

To check and clean the pump filter: The pump filter is located under the washer tub. To access it, you will need to remove the washing machine tub. Unscrew the retaining nut and pull out the old pump filter. Clean out any debris that may be blocking water drainage. Replace the pump filter and screw on the retaining nut. Reattach your washing machine tub and continue troubleshooting your LG washer not draining issue.
