Re: It is plugged but how Do i un plug it

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.

Gives code F15, drum motor not working. Does fill and drain ok. Have unplugged and changed cycle with no change, drum motor not working. IS there a reset?

F15 is a motor control unit error, this can be caused by a module failure or loose wiring or multiple error codes in a cycle, try un plugging for ten minutes to reset.

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.

I have a duet HT and the control is locked. how do i unlock thanks

Mine is doing this all the time, I finally got tired of pulling the washer out to unplug it so I plugged the washer into an extension cord that's easily accessable, so unplug it for at least 30 mins before you plug it back in reset to drain and spin cycle for 12 mins and your load should finish ok. These washer and dryers are beginning to be a pain in my....neck.

LG code for motor overload-- I am in the repair service and need more instructions on a LG wm2277H

Unplug remove the back. Loosen large bolt in center of rotor. Slide rotor off of spline. Look at the stator with the windings. At the bottom of the stator where the harness plugs in is the hall sensor. Remove the 10 mm bolts holding the stator on and don't let it drop. Un plug the plug and snap the hall sensor off and snap the new one on. Re assemble.

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...).

Plugged in the unit no power

Hello Ron,
If you are certain that the receptacle you are plugging the washer into is OK, then it is possible you have a bad cord, a fuse damaged or main circuit board damage. I suspect the cord or fuse might have the highest probability as the problem. I have attached a link for you to get the service manual and check out pages 14 -16 for troubleshooting details. If you can follow a schematic .. there are two fuse internal to the washer that may have gotten dislodged or damaged while in transit.. Also, if you open the washer up to gain access to this hardware, check that all connectors are properly seated on the main board and throughout the washer. You should do that with the washer unplugged

Hope this helps you..
