Washing machine lg intello wash wd 8013f

It looks like something burned inside. it's smells and power went down. It could be the cable or something else..... . Now, when i turn it on - all lights on right side are only flashing and nothing is happening. Does it sound like something serious and unrepairable?

    It got nothing to do with the outlet nor the power soarce. the machine lights up with the operating functions but as soon as i program them to start the washing cicly the lights just remain lit for a couple of seconds then start flickering for no reason with no action taken by the machine its just left there standing doing nothing. The lights work but the machine doesnt. what could this possibly mean?.

Is your washer getting power? The first things to check are your circuit breaker, lid switch, or fuse box. After making sure there is power or no power to the appliance, you can start troubleshooting other problems. To verify there is power at the outlet, try plugging in a small electric appliance such as a hair dryer or radio. Sometimes the motor will overheat and then requires a cool down period before it will restart.
Is the machine in a pause cycle? Is the lid up? Washers will not run if the lid is up. There is a lid switch probe that can sometimes become dislodged. This is generally a little plastic piece that is in the hole under the lid on the washer. This probe activates the lid switch when the lid is put down. Manually advance the timer if the pause is too long.
There are some washer models out there that will not run at all until the water is filled to the level that has been selected. Sometimes the mechanical timer knob on certain washers doesn't exactly line up with the graphics on the control panel. You can try advancing the timer slightly and pull the knob out again to see if it will start.

    Lg intellowasher wd-8013f is very noisy


    it will definitely be the bearings and possibly the spider as well. the spider is attached to the bowl. the spider is made of aluminum and they corrode all the time. open the door to the machine and grab hold of the steel bowl, has it got movement on it. if it has then the spider and bearings are faulty, also the main shaft seal will need replacing.nearly every time i went to an LG 8013f that was noisy it was the bearings and or spider. hope this helps. please reply 4 more help. good luck.

    You suspect right.
    It is a complete strip down job. I have just finished mine.
    taking apart and reassembling is not too dificult.but you need to make up a tool to remove and replace the bearings which are two different sizes. It consists of a lenghth of studding, bolts and washers.
    Download the manual from LG.
    Good Luck
