After eleven months of uneventful operation, we just had another error code on our LG Tromm front-loading washer. We previously had an OE error code and a tE error code. This time, it was a UE error code.
The good news is that this appears to be no big deal. The UE error code is for unbalanced loads (it’s and “unbalanced error” and it’s especially common on small loads, in which case it’s hard to have the load distributed evenly around the drum.
In this case, my son was washing the jacket he received for Christmas so he could wear it to school in the morning. The jacket was the only thing in the washer at the time and, when wet, is quite heavy. Hence the unbalanced load.
We spread it out in the drum and ran a quick spin cycle before tossing it into the dryer.
For reference, our washer is model number WM2487HWM.
