Possible that the power supply to the program controller unit has failed or that the program controller panel by itself has failed.
Remove the panel after disconnection of power and check for input power to the panel, check for fuse., if the fuse blows up again the board can have shorts within and will need a replacement.

SOURCE: LG Tromm wm1814cw LE flashing on digital display,

Here are few troubleshooting tips that i have found. If you acquire further assistance please let me know...

Is this a new installation?
In new installations, this error can sometimes present because of a miscommunication between the control panel and the wash motor. In this instance, the washer simply needs to be reset.
Step 1: Unplug the washing machine.
Step 2: While the washer remains unplugged, press and hold the [Start/Pause] button on the front panel for 5 seconds.
Step 3: Plug the unit back in, and run a rinse and spin cycle to test if the LE code is cleared.
Are there soap suds visible in the drum?
Over-sudsing is the main cause of LE error codes. Using non-HE (high efficiency) detergents or too much detergent will cause stress on the motor. In addition, detergent residue can also cause leaking and odor. Follow these steps to resolved an LE error code caused by over-sudsing.
Step 1: Unplug the washer and allow the unit to sit for 30 minutes to give the suds time to dissolve.
Step 2: Plug the washer back in and press [Power] to turn on the washer.
Step 3: Do not choose a washing cycle. Press the [Spin Speed] key until "No Spin" is selected.
Step 4: Press [Start/Pause] to begin a drain only cycle.
Step 5: After the drain only cycle has completed, remove the clothing items from the machine. Turn the power back on and select [Rinse and Spin] and then press [Start/Pause]. This will remove excess soap suds and light residue from the drum. Repeat this step until no visible suds are in the drum of the washer.

Has a large load size been used with a gentle wash setting?
Gentle wash cycles such as Perm Press, Delicates, Hand Wash, and Wool/Silk should only be used for smaller loads. Because the cycles are more gentle while tumbling and spinning, too many items in the drum can register as an issue with the motor. In this instance reset the unit and run a test rinse and spin cycle.

Has the washer been overloaded?
Single bulky items or large loads can add extra weight to the drum and place stress on the motor. Remove some of the clothing and restart. If the issue is still present after a few items have been removed, unplug the washer for 30 minutes to allow the motor to cool and then restart the cycle.

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.

No power at all


Possible that the main controller has failed if there is power till within the power supply unit of the controller.
You need to probe into the power supply unit to confirm for a fuse failure, a link failure on the Low tension circuit, a failure to provide power to the controller.

Washer won't spin. LE Error


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

'LE' stands for 'Lock Error' indicating that there is a problem either with the door lock or the door locked sensor requiring a service call, sorry ;-0(

If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!

LG WM1814CW washer - doesn't fill with water. Hear a hum when it should be filling with water, but no water and no error codes. I am guessing Valves (F160 and F170). Any thoughts?


Hi

If the washer won't fill you'll need to check for the water inlet hose, the water inlet valve and the pressure/water level switch assembly. Inspect the inlet hose coming to the washer for any blockages. If the hose is not clogged then check the water inlet valve for any clogs, if the water will not even fill for few seconds then certainly the water inlet valve is bad and should be replaced. You can also use a multimeter to check continuity on inlet valve. If you don't get any value on the multimeter then you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly. However, if the valve is fine then the pressure/water level switch assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Few months old WM3987HW won't turn on - seems dead, unplugging and replugging won't work; outlet has power


Hi Rick,

I found your answer to another person's problem with the LG washer/dryer not turning on. We have the same problem. My husband found a piece of plastic near one set of the fuses that looks warped - like it got too hot. Is there any advice you can give? It's a piece next to the box by the main power cord with a metal coil.

My drum light is on and won't go off.


If the water still operates then it is the panel switch. If the washer does not operate, then it is the door switch.
