How much soap are yall using? The washer is supposed to wash with less water. Too much soap causes problemas. Less than a year? Look for items in the filter.

SOURCE: My LG washer won't power up

Double check the cord to make sure all the wires are hooked up to the washer correctly, check your breaker/fuse box to make sure you don't have a tripped breaker or blown fuse, and check the outlet for power by plugging a known working item into it or using a circuit checker.

If the washer is getting power, try holding the power button down(if there is one) for 3-5 seconds.

If that doesn't help, here's a link to LG's customer support options:

The washer stops at 39 minutes on a regular wash cycle and the code OE is displayed

This fault code can mean that the pump is faulty as well as blocked, first of all check for a blockage and, if none is found then the likelihood is that the drain pump is faulty. Should you need it, the most common drain pump used on LG washers and washer dryers is this one.
On non-display panel models this fault code is denoted by the lights for 800, 500 and No Spin being lit or flashing.
  • Check pump filter is clear and there are no obstructions
  • Check the drain hose for obstruction
  • Check the drain hose is not kinked
  • Check the drain pump filter and clean if required
  • Check the air chamber and pressure sensor hose
  • Check drain pump, normal resistance is 152-175?
  • Check drain pump rotor
  • Check connections to water drain pump

My LG wm2701hv washer will only turn on if I disconnect for 20 seconds and reconnect. Once the load finishes I have to do the same thing all over again. Any ideas?

try holding in the power button for 10-15 seconds while unplugged, if that does not reset, try the same just after plugging back in. good luck.

I have a LG WM2701HV it is a year old and sometimes the washer is not turing on and doesn't turn. I have checked the wall outlet and other electronics work in it and the breaker. Help!!

Hi Robert.

If the washer is occasionally not starting there may be an inlet problem or the door switch may be defective.

Most LG washers display error IE (inlet) or DE (door) if the problem is detected. In some case the washer simply does not start.

Check that there is pressure from the house.

If machine does not fill the inlet valve must be tested. The resistance across valve's terminals must be between 0.8 and 1.2 KOhms
The valve must get 120VAC in first part of the cycle. Testing must be done by a trained person.

If the problem is intermittent the problem is more likely the door switch.
The door switch assembly is held by two screw. The door lock must click once or twice when the start/pause button is pressed to start the cycle.
The door switch can be tested reading impedance across its contacts. The reading must change between infinity and zero when the door is opened and closed.

In some occasion overloading may result in the washer not starting. Check if the problem happens in coincidence with overloading.

I have LG washer less then 1 yesr old and bleach is not dispensing from dispenser

You may have one of 3 issues. The dispenser valve is not working for the bleach dispenser, the control board is not feeding power to the dispenser valve or the dispenser drawer is not draining the bleach properly. You will need an authorized LG technician to help you with that.
Good luck
