Answer: 
Just turn it on, and the computer offers the standard normal dry options. But you can change whatever you'd need. Also, it senses the the moisture as it runs. So, the dry time can speed up during the run.. When not needing a long dry session.

It's an error code on LG washers which means the pump is blocked or something is preventing the water from draining.

4.3 cu. ft. High-Efficiency Front Load Washer in White, ENERGY STAR is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 794.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from incredible Had a top loder for 20 years. Finally broke down. Got my money's worth lol. This was on sale for 499 instead of 799. So no brainer. I was surprised 1)how quiet it was even and especially during spin. 2)that there was practically no water to be seen, as in you could tell fabric was soaking wet but no visible slushing water.(makes you kind of nervous to tell the truth) 3)how incredibly well it cleaned. 4)how incredibly well it dried after spin. 5)noticably cleaner, dryer, quieter. And 500 bucks. Cant beat that. Honestly. 6)nonsense about bad reviews about stinking water left behind.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This machine leaks and company refuses to honor warranty on it I bought this machine in March of this year. Within a month, it had started leaking from under the door. When I called their service number, I received a lecture about how I should properly clean the rubber lining on the rim of the machine so that not even a hair is left. Unless I only wash clean clothes (which defeats the purpose of a washing machine) this is not possible. I insisted on getting a service call and received the same lecture. My point is that it is not normal for a brand new machine to leak. The problem has persisted and the company refuses to honor the 5-year warranty that I purchased on it so I intend to call for service every week until they do something about it. The leaking has now caused a distinctive water leak stain under the door of my 7-month-old machine. Rather than making my life easier, this machine is making me work harder - I obsessively clean all around the rubber lining and door and run a vacuum cleaner around it after every wash. And it still leaks. I hate this machine and wish I'd never purchased it. DON'T BUY THIS MACHINE!

Unfortunately it came defective and it is leaking like crazy from under it. The installation is fine, the drainage working, but it still leaks under it. It is a nightmare because I have brand new wood floor installed in the whole apartment and I also have neighbor below. Home depot will Exchange it, however I can't even hear of LG. Will replace for another brand!

It not only looks modern and attractive (which is a nice perk but not a reason to purchase), but it is quiet, easy to use and is energy efficient. These are all concerns I had before the purchase, and it has exceeded expectations.

I have this stacked with my dryer, and it does have some vibration problems I need to figure out. Be sure to get your stacking kit before delivery... I had to reschedule my delivery when I didn't have it. I also had to pull them out to switch the hot/cold and fix dimples in the dryer duct... which was a pain until I got the foot sliders. I would be sure to get those before shoving things in for the next time you unexpectedly need to pull them out.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Mold growing after 6 months I followed the instructions for cleaning this washing machine every month and leaving the door open after each cycle to prevent mold growth, but it still had black slimy stuff under the door seal after only 6 months. There is so much water left in the bottom of the machine and all over after each wash, no wonder mold grows in it so fast. I am really mad about this. The design of this machine is such that you are going to get a moldy machine no matter how diligent you clean it because it stays wet all the time inside the machine. The door seal gets grimy and you can try drying off the groove, which takes a long time by the way, but there is no way to dry it off underneath and it stays wet and dirt gets stuck under there too and it turns into slime and eventually mold. I used HE soap and used the correct amount each time. I did a self clean cycle once a month and I used hot water during each load. Those recommended actions were a big pain and they didn't even work! I hate this machine and I want to get rid of it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This front washer requires that the pump filter be cleaned once a month. It involves opening the ... This front washer requires that the pump filter be cleaned once a month. It involves opening the bottom left panel, which I found difficult. It looks like it should be easy, with a tab that you press down. But I have to press it very hard and pull very hard to get the panel open. Then you unclip a hose, and pull it out into a container for catching the water, but the hose is very short. You must pull a plug out of the hose, which is also difficult as you are simultaneously holding the short hose over the container. Once you manage to pull out the plug (which admittedly would be easier if I didn't have arthritis), you must sit by the washing machine on your knees, patiently holding the hose as it slowly drains. The whole thing seems to have been designed with the expectation that the washer would be mounted on a foot high pedestal. If it isn’t mounted on a pedestal, the hose is virtually horizontal to get over the top edge of my 1.5 inch high water pan. Much more water comes out than is shown in the LG instruction video. It takes a while. It never full drains, and when you release the hose to tackle the filter, it spills some water onto the floor. The filter must be unscrewed (leaking more water) and cleaned, which in my case was a simple matter of removing some wet lint. Then you screw it back in, put the plug back in, attach the hose to the clip, and snap the panel shut. The washer is in my basement. The musical tone it makes when it is done washing is too faint to hear upstairs. It needs a loud buzz like my dryer. You have to be careful to wipe the seal each time you wash, to prevent mold. I can't keep it open to air out as pets may climb into it. The door cannot be reversed. On the bright side, I can dial up the setting I want and ignore the additional options, it gets my clothes clean, and it has pretty lights.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice washer, but the signals could be louder So far so good. Extremely quiet and seems to use very little water. Has tons of settings that I'll probably never use. But... the signals could be louder. Plays some silly little tunes that (at the loudest setting) I can't hear upstairs in my small house. A wifi alert would be nice.
