This machine is having drain errors. I put it into test, and everytime it came to the drain cycle it would slowly drain but would make a clik-clik sound like something was stuck in the drain pump. I would like the service manual if possible for this machine unless I can use the one the Samurai gave me when I signed up, model numbers are different but prolly is same series. I also would appreciate part number of drain pimp if possible.

The error was an IU:O3...but i think the thress is an E. I also cleaned out filter twice and vacumed out some very stinky water.


Thanks.

<<<everytime it came to the drain cycle it would slowly drain but would make a clik-clik sound like something was stuck in the drain pump.>>>
 
*****************
 
If there's no debris within the PUMP HOUSING---replace the DRAIN MOTOR (4681EA2001N).
 
The DRAIN MOTOR is located on the *left side* of the PUMP HOUSING (if standing in front of the washer).
 
*****************
 
<<<The error was an IU:O3>>>
 
*****************
 
This not an error message---just a *factory check code* and not relevant for troubleshooting.
 
*****************
 
<<<I also cleaned out filter twice and vacumed out some very stinky water.>>>
 
*****************
 
If you're a servicer---advise the customer to use *only* "HE" type detergent in the following amounts:
 
1) HE (regular formula) : (2) Tablespoons Per Wash Load
 
2) HE 2X (double concentrate) : (1) Tablespoon
 
3) HE3X (triple concentrate) : (1) Teaspoon
 
In addition--advise the customer that performing a TUB CLEAN cycle every (4) months will keep the washer odor-free.
 
Use: "Tide Washing Machine Cleaner"
 
NOTE:
 
         On the LG washer model WM2487xxx the TUB CLEAN cycle **CANNOT** be activated if the SPIN SENSE option has been "enabled".


This is a software glitch and does NOT affect any other model LG washer.



The SPIN SENSE option is "enabled" if the SPIN SPEED indicator light is flashing on & off after any wash cycle has been selected (washer does not need to be started).
 


To use the TUB CLEAN cycle---SPIN SENSE must be disabled by performing the following:

1) Power ON

2) Select ANY cycle

3) Press "START"

4) After the door *locks* (a single click sound) press/hold the SPIN SENSE option for

    button 3 to 6 seconds until the SPIN SPEED indicator light stops blinking on & off.

 

The TUB CLEAN cycle can be started by:

1) Power ON

2) Press/Hold the TUB CLEAN option button for 3 to 6 seconds until "tcl" is displayed.

3) Press START
