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:

they have springs and shock absorbers in the machine to help stabilize the load when spinning. since the washer is so new, i would guess one or the other has just come loose. take top off and check. online videos will show you how

My LG washing machine top is locked and the washer is broken, is there an emergency release button to open the door?

you have to lift the ENTIRE top just enough to look on the right side towards the middle and there is a little red piece you pull to release it. There is a youtube video out there showing it but I can't remember where I saw it. I hope that helps!

LG wt4801cw stopped working with 30 minutes left . I unplugged it and now it won't poer on. Do you think it is the control board?

Lid won't open! Mine too! Wet clothes, waiting for parts, if you remove the sliver back cover, about 16'X16's four Philips screws, look up on the right side of the machine behind the drum, way up there's a solenoid. Mine had a red string! I pulled on it and got my wife to try the lid, it opened! LG says you cannot open it, but that's not true. They just don't want you looking inside the junk machines they sell! Good luck!
