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.

    Sorry for my bad typing, all of the voltages should have been 110V.

Push button switch does not work

Sounds like a really dead machine. You have to start at the outlet, with something to see if it's working.
If the outlet is good, are any lights or indication of power on the machine working?
If no indication of power shows, a technician needs to open the machine to see what's wrong.

When I programme my washing machine the lock light does not come on when the door is closed, therfore it will not start.

Possible that the DOOR lock SWITCH is faulty and so the continuity to the switch and the wiring to the panel must be checked.
If there is no continuity then the switch must be replaced.

Power button beeps three times. Lock button works. Nothing else works.Technician diagnosed microcomputer control board. Replaced board control 8183258. Still dead!- he never called

Try to unplug power cord for 10 minutes and plug in. If you have manual on hand, follow instruction to find error code on your machine. Please tell problems before it went dead. Thanks.

Washer will not run power to the outlet but buttons do not work

Sounds like your motor controller is faulty Does your machine light up any buttons or if you have the display model, does the LCD display turn on? Is you machine completely dead, no lights no sounds? If it is first check the power point with a toaster or hairdryer just to be 100% sure it is not the power point.Now the two things that cause the machine not to power up are --1-- the motor controller is faulty or the drain pump is faulty.If you have an electrical test meter or can borrow one I can guide you throe to isolate the faulty part.Please reply for further assistance .

Machine does not power on. Control panel does not light up. Machine does not beep when plugged in.

Hi there,I'm afraid it sounds as though the main computer board is dead or the display panel where the buttons are is dead.Also i'm not sure with this model but with some of them the power runs thru the water pump before powering the the main board,if the pump is open circuited or dead then it may not be providing power to the main board.With a multi meter the pump can be tested for a circuit,it should read around 34ohms.or take the pump out (its quite easy) & take it somewhere & have this test done to it.this could be the cheapest way out & a good starting point. Ps if you recently had a bad electrical storm or power surge then that might be it..dead main board..In my tips section i mention the importance of unplugging these types of machine after washing to keep them safe.I hope i have been helpful in some way.Ide be glad to hear how you went.cheers Chris

Drum light stays on and wont let me start it again. Its dead but has light.. I have to power down the entire house to get it to start again

I had the same problem. LG addressed the problems as follows:
1. Unplug the unit 2. Press and hold the power button for 10 seconds. 3. Plug the unit back in.
It WORKS!! It's like reseting your computer or alarm clock. You've got to kill the power and press and hold the on button while it's still unplugged.
Hope this works for you.

Dyson showing fault no 70 600 2701


the support number for Dyson is 0870 600 2701

this is when the code was obtained, therfor you should have an Fxx code.

Try this:

  1. Switch off the power using the 'MAINS ON/OFF' button
  2. Press and hold the 'Temperature' button
  3. Carry out the next three steps within 3 seconds;
  4. Switch on the power
