Machine not displaying anything

check your power outlet first. if power is good, check your power cord. or you may have an noise filter board, or control board issue. if power is good, you may want to call in a pro to check the machine side.

No power

You need to remove top and check for 12v and 5v,( put multimeter leads on wires one at a time) going into display panel from main board. If you see 12v and 5v than display board is very bad.If no voltage at all then main b. is bad or the noise filter( connects to power cord) fuse is bad.

My fronter loader LG is not powering up. My son put in a load before going to bed. When we woke up the next morning we realized the washer wouldn't power up and it had flipped the circuit breaker. I...

OK, let's try this: Open the door and (with an empty washer) give the drum a hard spin (either direction) by hand. This uses the direct drive motor to in effect become a generator, and should light up the control. If control lights up only momentarily, then no line voltage is getting to the display board. I would suspect the line filter first. Take the top cover off by removing the lower screws on the plastic clips on the back side of the washer's top. Stand in front of machine and use the palms of your hands to sharply push back on the L and R edges of the top, about 2 inches, then lift top off. Track power cord into washer and on to a small rectangular box. (the line filter, which contain a non-replaceable fuse) Check if power is going in and comming out (heading for the main board) If power in but no power out, replace filter. After the filter, the power goes to the main board, which is in the top back Left hand corner. It has a plastic cover over it. When the machine is powered up, there is a red LED on the board itself which lights up.
Note: on a working machine which is connected to power, you can do the drum spin and the display board will light and remain on, without touching the power button.

That's about as much help as I can do from here. If you need more help, I suggest you contact an authorized LG servicer in your area. (find one from LG at 800-256-0000)

These are very good machines. I know of one guy, runs 10 loads a day, 365 days a year through his LG. Can't say he's never had a problem, but he is very satisfied and probably does more loads each year than that old Whirlpool did in 20.

My whirlpool calypso washer just quit working no codes no power just dead. GVW9959KQ2

Won't Power Up
  • 120VAC electrical supply.
Check voltage supply to washer.
  • Open AC cord.
Check for voltage at the power cord connection to the line filter.
  • Line filter open.
Check voltage into and out of line filter.
  • Machine control board open.
With the washer off but connected to the AC outlet, measure the AC voltage between Pins 4 and 2 at connector P16.

Just had power surge now lg washer will not come on

hopefully; it only wiped out the "line filter" board; and not the main board.. the line filter board is the first component the power cord connects to inside the machine.

Is there a fuse on the LG that can go out or be reset. I am getting no power to the panel?

No resetable fuse , trace voltage from power cord to board ,there is a small filter board that sometimes goes.

Dead power button

Most likely cause; dead main board.

A technician should check the following to confirm:

1. Check that the AC outlet has 110V
2. Check that 100V is going from the power cord to the AC filter.
3. Check that 100V is exiting the AC filter to the main board.

If all this checks out then it is definitely a bad main board that will need replaced. Hope this helps, please rate my solution.

No lights on panel machine not switching on

Either the AC filter board has gone out or the main board. The diagnosis is best left to a qualified technician at this point. The technician should start by checking that 110V is coming into the AC filter board from the power cord and that 110V is then leaving out of the AC filter board to the main board. This will determine which part needs to be replaced. Hope this helps. Please rate my solution.

Fuse location

Follow power wires (power unplugged), from timer toward power cord entry. If they go to a fused board then there is the fuse, if the unit is not fused, either the timer has blown, or often you find a fused board near the motor and pump assembly, inside the bottom part of the appliance.
