Washers draw a lot of current as well. You need to be sure that 1. your plug is live, and 2. the fuse is large enough that you don't trip the breaker when turning it on. If it is the dryer, you run that off of a different V altogether, so you will have to be sure that you have that capability at your house. It is a different looking plug, however, so you will notice that you can't plug it in...

Re: wont turn on
Check to make sure that your outlet is good. You may need to run an extension cord to another outlet to make sure. If the unit still doesn't turn on, you may have a problem with the control board and will need it to be serviced by a qualified LG technician.

I had the same problem. LG addressed the problems as follows:
1. Unplug the unit
2. Press and hold the power button for 10 seconds.
3. Plug the unit back in.
It WORKS!! It's like reseting your computer or alarm clock. You've got to kill the power and press and hold the on button while it's still unplugged.
Hope this works for you.
I have the LG WM3988HWA, which is a washer and dryer in one. The way it works on ours is that you press and hold the Spinsense button for 3 seconds before you start a wash, or while a wash is paused. When Spinsense is on, the LCD will say "Spinsense" on the right-hand side when the machine is running. Nothing happens with the light on the Spinsense button.
Spinsense makes a huge difference as the machine is on the second floor of our old wooden house. I don't even notice the spin cycle with Spinsense on.
Problems: 1. We need to turn it on for every load. This is just annoying. 2. Spinsense will not turn on when you've the Dryer option activated. This means we have to do two trips to the machine for each load, or have our house feel like it's shaking to pieces. There's no good reason that the Spinsense/Dryer shouldn't work.
i had a similar problem with a zanussi machine
a cheap bracelet got washed with some clothes and it found its way into the drum housing jamming the drum.
it may have been cheap to fix, but i just got rid of it cos it was 4 years old anyway
i now have a zanussi ZWF1231W just past its 1 wear warranty that has just died completely except for an "on indicator light"
the store inform me that i will have to pay the zanussi engineer a Euro 90 call out charge, plus labour costs, plus parts if needed.
im a little bit disappointed with zanussi to say the least
