LG WM2487H*M Drum light stays lit after each load is completed

The drum light on my LG WM2487H front load washer stays lit after each load is completed. I am unable to restart the machine and must unplug the washer to "reset" the device. Even when I unplug the machine, the drum light stays lit for an additional 15-30 seconds. This problem just started despite my efforts to maintenance the machine.

Thanks

    I have the EXACT same problem with my LG WM2487HA washer. It's almost impossible for my wife to get to the plug/outlet as well.

    I have the same problem and unplugging does seem to work, but a pain to do. It does not happen each time, but is happening more often.

    I have the same problem. Does not happen everytime, but often. Unplugging does work for me. Did you find a fix?

Solution. Unplug the machine. Hold the power button for 10 seconds. Plug back in. Push the power button and the washer should turn on. Walk away leaving the machine on. When I did this, I came back to find the drum light off and machine would start on command now. Good luck.

I checked with a certified technician on this problem. Unfortunately the repair cost me $200. The main circuit board needed to be replaced, and the unit works as advertised now. It's actually easy to access the circuit board in the left rear of the washer, but it was a challenge to remove the 16 connections! If you aren't intimidated by this kind of repair, take your time and all will go well.

Tub doesn't spin at all, sounds like it is trying to (something is rotating). It isn't turning for wash or anything else


Two schools of thought here. 1st. the belt has slipped off the retention pulley. 2nd the belt has broken. Pull out the machine, unplug then remove back lower panel look under the drum to see the belt and pulley.

I work with a parts supplier and can get you a great price. All I need is the model number that is located on the machine. It should be located inside the door frame of the washer on a plate.
