My LG washer model WF-D100M/GSC displayed error code AE…. says Clutch error, can i repair it myself?


9 DIY Project Help Tips September 6, 2016 at 11:11 pm

Romeo Lim,
Replacing a clutch in a washing machine is simple if you follow a guide and have the proper tools.
Just be sure that the error code is the same each time and that the clutch is what is truly faulty in your LG washer.

Why does my LG fuzzy logic top load washer show F in the display panel when it is switched on?


11 DIY Project Help Tips July 7, 2016 at 10:28 pm

On your LG washer, is there any other letter next to the F error like FE or OF?
Is the washer running or is it stuck and simply just shows F in the display?
What is the model number of your LG washer?


12 laura June 19, 2016 at 10:16 pm

Is there anyway to set the LG top loader back to default. Mine is not wanting to drain and we have checked all error codes.


13 DIY Project Help Tips June 20, 2016 at 10:32 pm

If it is not draining, have you checked the drain pump, drain hose, drain lines in washer, drain in wall is not clogged?
Are you getting any error codes on the LG front load washer?
Does the washer go through all cycles but when it comes time to drain… what exactly happens?
Do you hear the drain pump running or?


14 Shital March 21, 2016 at 5:00 am

My LG front load direct drive8/ 4kg Wd-14331AD washing machine always shows IE error…
Checked with the inlet pipes no issues found.
Pls help its happening always and pause the process.


15 DIY Project Help Tips March 21, 2016 at 9:59 pm

The LG washer error code ie or IE means there is an issue with the Water inlet valve assembly. Check it with a meter to be sure it is getting power. Also check to see if it may be somehow clogged and therefore not letting water into the tub efficiently.

LG washer displays Fb. what does it means? I also cannot press any buttons..help!


17 DIY Project Help Tips February 9, 2016 at 12:02 am

Worry Housewife,
That error is not in the database but may mean you have a DOOR lock or unlock issue. Can you supply us with the model number of your LG washing machine so we can research further?


18 Melanie Fleming February 5, 2016 at 4:34 pm

I pressed the pause button, but the error code “CL” on my LG washer is still engaged. Any other advice?


19 DIY Project Help Tips February 5, 2016 at 7:05 pm

Melaine Fleming,
LG Washer Error Code CL means that your washer CHILD LOCK is ON. You can find two buttons Temp and Options in the panel. Turn ON the machine, press these two buttons together for 3 seconds and that should reset it or turn it off. The LG washer may have a small face above a lock key that is in between the wash and rinse buttons. Hold the buttons for 5 seconds and it should unlock.
