    Default LG Washer WT5001CW Grinding noise with UE and Dr Error Codes

    Model Number: WT5001CW
    Brand: LG
    Age: 6-10 years

    Hello,

    My LG Washer is making a horrible grinding noise and it appears to be stuck in a fill doom loop and never completely drains, even when it is set to Spin Only - it just refills. I have had error codes UE and Dr. Link to video below. Any suggestions greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Hi,

    Error Code Dr=Door switch, that will need to be replaced.

    Here it is for your model:
    EBF61674802 Switch Assembly


    Here's the video to show you how to replace it: Door Switch Video

    Here's the service manual for your model: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ttlat778nj...anual.pdf?dl=0

    Page 35 explains what error code LE is and what to test.

    What you mentioned about it not draining properly, I'd first check for something inside the drain pump that could be partially clogging it up. If the machine doesn't drain properly that maybe why its constantly trying to fill, thinking the water is all drained out already.

    Remove the rear access panel and look in the drain pump:

    For that noise problem, move the tub around and see if it makes that same noise, when did that noise start?

    Thanks Jake! The noise started one wash load before this one and while it made noise, it completed the cycle. One wash later it was not working properly. Moving the tub around does not replicate the noise. The noise comes from when the agitator or whatever it is called on the bottom of the tub spins (or tries to spin).

    Ok, Got it!

    If your drain pump is fine, nothing clogged in it, then Page 35 in the service manual I posted above will tell you what to do to fix it.

    Here's the parts diagram for your model: LG Washer WT5001CW / Repair Parts
