I assume the machine is not draining. Most of the time the obstruction is in the pump itself. UNPLUG POWER CORD. THIS IS A MESSY REPAIR unless you can get the machine outside and drain the water. There are two different pump configurations on these machines. You will need to lean the machine back against the wall so you can remove the bottom panel to get to the pump. There are 3 screws holding it at front of machine. If your machine has the pump that is held on to the motor with 2 metal clips, you can remove the clips and hoses and remove pump. Look in pump inlet and outlet and see if you can see the restriction and remove it with needle nose pliers. Most of the time this type of pump is beyond help and must be replaced with the newer style. About $300 to have this done by professional. If you have the newer pump, it will be part of the motor. You can remove the hoses and three screws that hold housing to motor. Be sure you don't lose or damage rubber seal on housing. After you clean pump, clean and dry seal area and reinstall housing and hoses. It will usually seal back with no problem. You may have a restriction in sump of tub going to pump. Sometimes it can be cleaned from rear of machine, if not, the basket will have to be removed. Depending on age and condition of machine this can be simple or very expensive. If basket is frozen to basket drive, you can replace machine cheaper than replacing basket and drive.

My washer wont drain

Check filters, drain pipe and drain pump for blockage. Make sure the pump mechanism moves freely in its housing . Un ravel any hair bands, loose cotton elastic etc. make sure to UNPLUG YOUR WASHING MACHINE BEFORE DOING ANY CHECKS. Sometime just unplugging the machine and plugging it back in again it can reset the machines program functions.

Microwave not coming on when plugged in

The first step is to check the fuse in the mains plug. If this is ok, one will have to remove the microwave cover (un-plugged) and check the internal fuse.
If this is ok, it's an electronic fault and likely to be expensive to repair.
If the internal fuse has failed, it's usually for a reason.
Follow the above and reply.

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...).
