Question about LG WM3988HWA Front Load Washer / Dryer

Open Question

LG WM3988HWA is full of water at END OF CYCLE when the DRY option is set

I have tried Alergene, Perm Press and Speed Wash with "More" for the drying setting. At END OF CYCLE the drum is full of water which gushes out when I open the washer's door. Service has replaced the control board three times during the last three years. The first two times the machine worked OK for some months afterwards. Presently the service man is stumped. The machine washes normally if the DRY function is not activated.

LG WM3988HWA water filling drum and overflowing during dry cycle


Solution for finding the right part, the (5 way) Valve assembly:Part Number: AP4998623 made by LG
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5520795

I got the company link from LG. If the link does not work, go the the main website and enter in the model number. appliancepartspro(.)com
p.s. I found a service manual for my unit when I removed (by unscrewing) the inside plastic piece of the pump filter. It was located to the right, in a plastic bag.
p.s.s. I checked my water pressure, it was 90psi. I think this is why my flow limiter 'shot out' the valve and into the tubing.
p.s.s.s. The dryer heater assembly, the duct out, fan, and tubing was filled with so much lint, I was surprised anything could get through.

I can't turn on SpinSense on my LG WM3987HW combo washer-dryer. I've tried pressing the button for 3 seconds in nearly every mode, on or off, locked, unlocked, wash, spin, rinse. I've managed to get it on...


I have an earlier version of your machine (WM3988HWA). What I've found is that you can't use the Spinsense feature if you've got the Dry cycle set to go after your wash. I have no idea why they designed it this way!
We run the wash first without setting it to dry, and have no problem turning Spinsense on. I usually hold it down for 3 second after hitting the start button, but you can also do it before you start the wash. When the wash is done, then we start a dry cycle.
This is the main flaw with our otherwise great machine. I posted about it at http://www.fixya.com/ThreadAsker.aspx?thid=1844295 a long time ago but never got any advice.

Explanation of Wash Cycles


Sorry but you only have the one speed on this particular brand. Perm and short are just less time. The best thing to do is always use large water setting and less delicates in the load on a short cycle to compensate for the speed and protect your delicate fabrics.

When clothes are dryed on the perm press cycle either reg dry or very dry, they are still damp. I have to run it through 2 or more times to get them dry. I'm told by Bosch that is what perm press is...then...


You may not be getting sufficient air flow--remove the lint filter and wash it with detergent and hot water. Also clean excessive lint out of the air vents (under the filter too). Don't use 'perm press' if you want things absolutely dry. Remove and hang up before they cool. 'Damp dry' really means 'don't dry' I guess!

Model # dwu7702aae has heat delay light coming on during cycle. Why?


Heater is used to both heat water during clean cycle and dry dishes after wash cycle. Most washers have either a separate switch for Heat or Dry for optional use, or some have the water heat and dish dry options built into cycle set options.

You can save money by turning off the Dish Dry option since it is a very in-efficient way to dry dishes. Instead, open the wishwasher door after washing cycle completes, just enough so fresh air can get into, and humid air can escape, dishwasher.

Water Heat option is only needed for dried food on dishes, and is never needed if dishes are either rised off before putting them in the dishwasher, or rinsed off inside the dishwaser with a Rinse cycle, if they are to stand for a time waiting for a full dishwasher for wash.

Some magic happened today!

I got the thing (wd-12331ad) to dry without having to run a wash first!

Also, I seemed to get it to do a spin only run...

The way to get it to dry :
-----------------------------------
(for a set time - I've not managed to get any of the auto-dry settings to work)
from machine being off:
> press the power button.
> press the "Dry" button 'til "Time" lights up
>>> press "Dry" again to get the desired duration
> press the spin button 'til the spin speed shows blank/ the RPM light goes out.
> press "Start/Pause"

It will then dry for the number of minutes specified!

Not perfect, I know but that's serious progress from where I was before; having to re-run a wash cycle to get it to dry anything...

Something to note:
- The machine worryingly sounds like it's starting to fill with water when you start the "Just Dry" program which scared me at first. BUT it stops after a second or so (I think it's just cleaning out the detergent tray so it doesn't bake any leftover powder)


For "spin only" from machine being off:
-------------------------------------------------------
> press the power button.
> press the spin button
>>> if you press "Start/Pause" now you get a 13 minute 1200 spin cycle
>>> press the spin button again and then "Start/Pause", it seems to drain itself for 1 minute
>>> pressing spin repeatedly, cycles through the spin speeds.


Things I don't know:
----------------------------
- I don't know if you can combine spin and heat.
- I don't know whether the auto-dry programs are available
- I don't know what other programs are available from the "Dry"/"Spin" buttons

...So if anyone does any experimenting, please let us know the results, you never know, we might end up with a half way useful set of instructions! I'm starting to think the machine's not half as bad as it seems when following the manual alone.

Hope that helps.
Will
