Question about LG WM2487H Front Load Washer
I just bought an LG WM2487H. THe first load ran fine. Water level was up on the door a couple of inches. We had a thrnderstorm that night with the power going off and on several times. Now the washer just puts in enough water to get the clothes wet and not enough to actually wash them. I tried several different cycles & tried unplugging it for a couple of hours. Nothing helped. Any ideas??? I have a large family and can't do without a washer for a week or two waiting for a service tech to look at the brand new machine. Thanks!!!
The timer motor is what is called a hysteresis synchronous motor. it runs off 120 volts and synchronizes itself with the frequency of 60 cycles which is what your power co is feeding to you. with your power going on and off and on and off, it created spikes on your house circuit which probably burnt out part of the timer motor. replacing just the timer motor should take care of the problem. the whole timer costs a lot of money like around $130. If yours is a solid state timer, there's no motor just a preprogrammed computer for fill, agitate, drain, rinse and spin. I have no idea what a new board costs but try parts select dot com. they have parts for major appliances.
