    Default WT4870CW error code E6

    Model Number: WT4870CW
    Brand: LG
    Age: 1-5 years

    Does anyone know how to repair an LG washer. I am getting an E6 error code. Have already replaced the clutch assembly, still get code. Replaced the control board, still get error code.I have checked the ohmic values on the stater and it is completely balanced. Checked the position sensor with 12 volts dc and it appears to be functioning correctly. I am beyond frustrated because i have so much money to repair this thing and it looks like it is just junk. Thanksfor any help, Don.

    Hi Don,

    I located a thread from Patrick back in 2015 with this same error code E6.

    Here it is: https://www.applianceblog.com/mainfo...E-6-error-code

    I'll message Patrick and see if he remembers what fixed his E6 error code problem.

    Patrick responded to me saying the customer he had decided not to pursue fixing that LG anymore, too many parts already installed on it with still no fix.

    The customer got a Speed Queen, Speed Queens are the best most reliable washer made now.

    Unfortunately, these LG machines have been a problem child for many customers, In my opinion LG and Samsung should not have gotten in the home appliance business, they do better with smartphones and TV's.
