LG washer error codes

The history of LG, the Korean company, started in 1947. Then its founder, Koo In-Hwoi, engaged in the production of hygienic cleansers. The reorientation to electrical products was done somewhat later, in 1958. Nowadays, the goods, made under the LG brand, have received a worldwide acclaim. The affiliates of the company are located in many countries. It never stops developing. The firm introduces innovations and improves design all the time.

LG washer error codes

There is a number of goods, released under this brand. Washing machines are also included in their number. The models are different: the budget variant is equipped with the most necessary functions, and the more expensive ones are multifunctional. For example, the washer model F1294TD5 has been at the peak of popularity in the USA for 7 years. It’s drum capacity is quite big even for such laundry as large blankets. In addition, it is equipped with a steam function for the quick refreshment of clothes, and the TurboWash option, aimed at reducing of washing cycles and saving the water and electricity.

If the washer is broken, the screen will show you an error code. It is a very important information. Each code corresponds to a specific problem. Having known the reason of fault, you would be able to fix the machine by yourself without calling a specialist. Sometimes all you need to do it too close the washer`s door more tightly or flush the drain filter. Error codes of LG washers describe all the information. In more complicated cases you will be recommended to call a repair service.


Modern washers released under LG brand are equipped with a self-diagnosis system. An electronic display shows the description “error” and a code. It often happens when a device does not work. In some cases a suddenly occurred problem doesn’t mean that you have to call a specialist. Probably, a filter is littered and you can get rid of the breakage by your own.

Let’s find out more about system errors and its meaning, which are typical for LG washing machines. The table is filled with an error description, its meaning, the reason of occurrence and possible ways of problem’s elimination.

E7Pedestal washer is being operated without a full-size washer.
Stacking switch is not working properly
The pedestal washer will not operate as a standalone unit. It must be stacked under a full-size LG appliance.
The stacking switch will not operate properly if the unit is stacked under a non-LG appliance, or an LG appliance manufactured before 2009.

The typical errors of LG washer, described in the table, will allow detecting a derangement quickly. But there is another way to decipher the errors of LG washer. To do this, use special diagnostic software, installed on a smartphone. Pressing the keys for turning on the self-diagnostics and bringing the microphone of the smartphone to the machine, we will give information about the errors of the software and it will show the cause of the derangement.

In addition, some advanced LG washing machines are able to transmit diagnostic information via the NFC protocol. The possibility of diagnosing the machine through the LG hot line cannot go unnoticed. For this, you need to call the number indicated in the technical brochure, activate the self-diagnostics and wait for the response of the operator, who will not only tell you about the derangement but also will tell you how to fix it. There are few manufacturers who can boast of such a service.

You also need to understand that error codes are not a ‘panacea’, they will not tell you what the problem is, they just suggest the right direction for finding the problem and they will not replace the diagnostic skills of professionals for you. In most cases, using the error codes, you can learn enough to study and diagnose the cause of the failure.
