Re: Power switch

It is quite possible. Replacement of the control board might be needed as well.

Lid light flashing

OK have you tried unplugging the machine for 15 minutes and then re-plug in? This will reset it. If it still does this then the switch (little hole with white rubber depression on side where lid closes) is bad and needs to be replaced. It is a safety warning indicator telling you the machine is not Locked! It is annoying for a reason cause you can get hurt!

I was stupid enough to forget to replace the drain outlet hose to the laundry tub... I heard the machine beeping from the next room... Found water flowing all over floor... Stopped machine in mid cycleby...

I think you can take the power off from the set and allow the memory to reset. Give about 8 hours without the power connection, remove power and depress off the switch. switch to the cycles and bring it back to normal.
Allowing time for the processor to reset will make the machine which had been interupted to come back to normal state.
Helpful? Good day

The machine lights are blinking and it is beeping?

First try unplugging from the wall leave unplugged for 5 mins, and plug back in, this may fix it.

Neptune front load washer showing code LO. Door

You can try either prying the door open and then replacig the door switch which is probably what caused the problem in the first place. Or try unplugging the machine for several hours, press and hold power button for a few seconds, wait half hour more, plug back in to see if it resets itself.

I have a mah5500b. prob is washer will not start or do anything. it just beeps. tried the diagnostic test. by pressing delicates and heavy soil. led shows 00. when i push other buttons to check functions....

I had a similar problem on my Neptune. All the machine would do is beep. I believed it was a stuck button so I got a new touch pad and that solved the problem. I also substituted a control board prior to buying the touch pad but the problem was the same.

Is there a reset button on the LG front load washer

No button, but LG customer service says unplugging the unit for 1 hour and then holding the power button while turning it on will reset the computer.

In my experience this does work, but I don't think it resets absolutely everything.

Another time I had a problem LG customer service told me to unplug the unit, hold the power button for 60 seconds and then plug it back in. I can't confirm if this works or not, but it is worth a try first (60 seconds is a lot shorter than 60 minutes...).

Warsher panel goes wacky......

Sounds like you possibly have a short in the touch panel unit.  Very hard to know for sure, but that is usually the signs we get when one goes out.  The problem is this touch panel is seriously expensive.  Try this, unplug the machine for around 15 minutes.  Sometimes they can hang up.  Unplugging it would cause the computer to sometimes reset itself.  If it does the same thing when plugging it back in, its that touch panel.  You cant always see any burned or scored areas to indicate a bad board.  Good luck and let me know if you need any further help.    Jim
