It could be the selector switch assm, or the main board is out, it happens when the power fluctuates or someone playing with the buttons while the unit is in operating mode.LG's are very very sensitive. if you have a multi meter check if you have the correct voltage feeding the unit. either 110 or 220.............

try and find out the part number for the selector board and the main board assm.

LG WM2016CW When I hit on button it chimes but control panel doesn't light and washer won't start

To determine if the user control and display board is defective, try pressing the buttons on the control panel. If some of the buttons work, but others do not work, the control and display board might need to be replaced. Additionally, if the display is not working, check the power to the user control and display board. If the user control and display board has power, but it isn't working, replace it.
The main control board may also be faulty.

MAH8700 Water and Clothes stuck in washer.. HELP!!

Well its tough to tell exactly what is goin on.... when you are in service mode and press chime it displays how many cycles its done not a command to unlock the door (thats what you were attempting.right?)...559 cycles in a little over a year?? Thats a lot! you do like one a day every day??? Anyway aside from that it sounds like the pump is clogged with foreign objects. Its not easy to service the pump/sump on this new chassis neptune made by samsung. But after 559 cycles theres bound to be some stuff in there. If you feel lke servicing it yourself there is an axcess panel on the bottom and the back or take the whole front off the machine to service. You can try using a shop vac to suck the water out of the drain hose. The control should unlock the door when it sensed the water has drained or so it thinks.

When I turn it on it makes the start up music but no lights come on?

Finally, I think I have fixed this rotten piece of junk. I will never get an LG anything again. I have had the same problem of start up music or chime, but no lights, and i tried unplugging it for a few minutes, to several hours or even days and holdingin the power button in as you plyg it back in, or just holding in the power button in after it is plugged back in and a few times it has started back up, but always after a couple of hours playing with the darned thing. I live in Tucson in a new house with great electrical set up, but when it is 110 outside, the ariconditioner is running full blast and it dims the lights a tiny bit upon startup, then evens out just fine- it is just the initial start up that you notice anything at all with the ariconditioner running. I am a computer tech and got to thinking that the symptoms the washer was having were the same as it there was a power failure, except there was no error message. That got me to thinking that whatever sensor it has for electrical must only be partially tripped- it was not a bad enough of a dip in power to shut the whole thing down- it still startup chimed, but it was just enought hat it would not let the circuit baord start it up, even using all of the resetting information because it wasn't fully tripped off.

Long story short- plug it into a computer battery back up box that has power conditioning like an APC 550 and it lights right up and works fine. It is a picky piece of junk, but at least it works now and since it is just one month out of warranty, I am pretty happy about that.

Maytag may8700aww washer with e3 code

This worked for me for the E3 error code: Turn the machine off and then on. Enter the Service Mode by pressing the Chime and Exrta Rinse keys for 3 sec. Display the Diagnostic Codes by pressing the Rinse and Spin key. Clear the codes by pressing the Delay and Chime keys for 3 sec. Turn the machine off, unplug and plug in the power cord. This dumps the memory. Evidently, if it gets full, it causes problems with the programming and messes up the cycles.
