How To Reset Your LG Washing Machine

Are you encountering code errors in your LG washer? Is your LG washing machine producing beeping sounds right after hitting the start button? Sounds like you need to reset your washer.

Resetting your washer can bring back the circuit functions to the factory settings. Sometimes, frequent use of washer can lead to the build up of information in the circuit. By simply resetting the machine, you are getting rid of accumulated data.

But before resetting your washer, make sure the error codes are really caused by malfunctions in the circuit and not by an external problem.

Do not overload the washer drum. LG washers are very sophisticated. The modern ones can sense when there is too much load inside the drum. Also check the power source. Make sure you directly connect the machine to the outlet. This machine needs a good supply of voltage. Using extension cords can cut the flow of energy.

Checking the flow of water also does not hurt. When dirt has accumulated in the water filter, water cannot pass through easily. Since these have timer settings that allow the machine to be filled up with water at a specific time, high water pressure is needed.

Follow these steps to reset your LG washer:

Step 1: Unplug the washer. Let it rest for a couple of minutes to allow the undercurrents to die down.

Step 2: Slowly pull the washer away from the wall. If you have rough flooring, you might want to “walk” the washer forward by lifting one end after the other. Make sure you do not disconnect the connection of water hose at the back.

Step 3: Open the door of the washer and use your hands to manually spin the basket. If you are using a top loader, you should hold the agitator firmly and spin it. You cannot really turn it perfectly but you should spin it manually as far as you can. Do this step three times to allow the machine to restart its functions. Make sure you rotate the front load basket for about 360 degrees to allow the restart functions to happen.

Step 4: Push the washer back in its place and plug it. Check the water hose if it has been disconnected.

Step 5: Now try to run a test cycle. The machine should work perfectly fine now.

Now that you know how to reset your LG washing machine, you should be able to correct code error problems on your own.
