Bought the machine in April 2016. Lint! Lint! On everything. Lint filter no don't one. Wash the clothes then go outside with a lint brush before bringing the clothes inside. Where does all the lint come from? Previous loads. As for service in Canberra act. One company only. One other Company want service call fee over the phone when you book. The other is sooooo busy can't service for at least another week. As for the LG Care centre, don't think the staff are in Australia. For future reference don't buy it unless it has a lint filter. LG products are good. Question - why no lint filter in this model?
I have an LG inverter top loader 6.5kg a few years ago. Does this machine have a lint filter. Cant find any evidence . Thank you.
Hi Kristine, yes it does. Should be on the barrel on the inside on the side somewhere. Don’t know how to explain it sorry. But that where mine is. You have to like pop it open.
no lint filter, hence I posted about dirty washing, impossible to get clean sheets, the lint sticks to the sheets and gets in the creasers, the sheets come out dirtier than when you put them in. Of course you can do a drum clean of two, which uses up 3+ hours of electricity, not good for reducing our carbon foot print. I asked about the lint filter at the time or purchase and was told the machine doesn't need it as it washes all the lint away, which is absolutely not true.
How to clean this washing machine?
Is there any lint filter??
We have been generally happy with our machine, except for the erratic timer. It seems to reset the amount of time to go without any human input. We can check the time to run and it may be, for example a few minutes, when we go back five minutes or so later, it has changed to 20miutes or more to run. It has always done this but at first only occasionally, now it is with almost every wash. Any suggestions?
Ooh,no sorry. The only thing I can think of maybe its adding time according to the load? You may have to contact LG. I have always found them to be really helpful.
How do you replace a outlet hose, it seems to be inside the machine??
I have an LG T8582/EAP (8.5 kg)
I have cleaned filters in machine and the filters on the back water hoses are completely clean.
I get scum on my sheets and clothes frequently and have never had this problem with other brands in the past.
I have never had a problem like that with either of our LG machines. Could it be fabric softener? I was getting a bit of build up in my front loader (Electrolux) and I have just switched to using vinegar instead and its fixed the problem,,it works just as well,its far cheaper and it cleans the machine as well! I know if you wash in cold water the fabric softener goes thick and gunky, especially in a front loader. Otherwise it could be too much detergent? Have you tried a tub clean?
I stopped using fabric softener ages ago,The scud on clothes started happening not long after I bought the machine
How long to wash a load of clothes?
My unit always gives a tub clean of 7 hrs and 18 mins. it does this even immediately after a a tub clean cycle of the same time. How do I change this time?
Why my machine water inlet direct?
My machine will not spin and pump water out how can I fix this problem?
Is it possible to do a 'warm' wash cycle? I note only 'hot' and 'cold' options on the panel
Hi. I’m a little unsure to this as well I press both the hot and cold and assume that it would be warm and I’m thinking it is as i havent had any shrinking problems but mayne google it that’s what I’m anout to do as I’d like to know too
Where is the lint filter and how do i clean it? Thanks
The lint filter is built in automatic so you shouldnt need clean it to but a service technican should be able to confirm if thats the case.
Have a look at page 34 of the User Instructions / manual -- (assuming --- not always wise -- that the 6.5 and the 7.5 are of similar construction ), there is a method shown for cleaning the pump casing and filter. Frequency is reduced by design and the task requires access to the rear of the machine. Machines requiring frequent lint disposal usually have the lint trap accessible from the front.
Automatic lint filter cleaning should not be taken too literally. Just as tub cleaning is often overlooked, and that process is in the manual as well.
I'm probably not the best person to answer this question as I didn't realise that the machine, WTG8532WH, had a filter, so have never tried to clean it.
I have now read the manual and it says to close the taps, turn on washer, press start/pause.
It will attempt to start washing. When the water stops turn off the power at the power point.
Remove the inlet water supply hose, pull out the filter and clean with a brush.
Refit the filter and and reconnect the inlet hose.
This does not seem to be a very user friendly procedure.
I have not had a problem with lint on my clothes.
However I don't think the machine has enough water if it fills up automatically.
Therefore I always set the water level manually so the washing has plenty of water in the machine to swirl around .
How do I set the time to do a favourites wash?
My 7.5kg LG washing machine lid is locked and won't open - have tried turning off/on several times -won't budge... any answers appreciated.
how long does the tub clean function take? asked one customer service person - said one hour - asked another person said could be 8 hours you have to be kidding
what does DL mean when its flashing on my lg 7.5kg washing machine wtg7532w
The DL Stands for the Door (Lid) lock. Check the lid is closed and nothing is caught under the lid and then press the start button. If the little red padlock light is on the display then it is working.
hi i was washing on the weekend and noticed a grinding noise from the machine, is this a common thing to happen ?
There is no foam on the clothes when we wash the clothes inspite of pouring more than enough detergent powder. I used the machine twice. How to sort out this problem.
i use front loader powder in mine so it dosnt foam up so much & it washers beautifully. You don't need it to foam up otherwise you will have soap in your cloths
Where is the lint filter located?
I went to Harvey Norman today and was told by the sales guy that there is no lint filter in LG WTG7532WH. The problem reported by Gabe from Sydney sounds more like a faulty product. I owned a Whilrpool top loader that did not have a lint filter and lint never clogged the machine. The only problem is that lint stays on clothes. Is there any one else experiencing the same problem?
I read the instruction and it does state that the pump casing needs cleaning which involves pulling out the machine and removing foreign objects from filter. Is this where the problem is for Gabe? I would consider it a bad design if I have to do it every 6 months as maintenance. It also says in the manual that this is only for the pump model drain hose. So if I choose the non-pump model, then I would not have this problem?
I just bought this machine today now I am worried!!!
called LG today, to my horror, all the LG WTG7532W distributed in Australia are the pump model. The users are required to clean the pump casing located at the back of the machine near the bottom next to the drain hose , once every month, according to customer service. So I have cancelled the order and go for a Speedqueen.
Can this machine works without compromising of hot water hose?
