    Open top washer lid. You will find the main computer board on the left back side. Disconect the yellow plug . that's a relay in the board hit it a few times with something gently, this will un stuck the relay that's causing you the issue, plays it back and try it on.
    I have fixed 3 of them by doing this.
    Hope it help anyone having same issue.

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 did just like it says to do. That solved the problem. I glad I looked at this websight. Thought I was looking at a new circuit board or even worse, a new washer from what I've seen other people posting on LG front loader washers.
    Thanks again

    When we do this, and plug back in the machine automatically comes on and it eventually powers off but the light stays on

CoolRod41,

That is a terrible answer! Someone is asking how to solve a problem with the drum light, and you tell them to buy a new washer?!? You are terrible!

MY ADVICE IS TO BUY A NEW WASHER. I INVESTIGATED LG ON THE INTERNET LAST NIGHT AND I HAVE READ ALOT OF COMPLAINTS ABOUT LG PRODUCTS. I ALSO READ THAT LG DOESN'T STAND BEHIND THEIR PRODUCTS. I HOPE THIS IMFO HELPS. HOW OLD IS YOUR WASHING MACHINE?

    I just noticed my drum light on all the time the other day. I shouldn't have to unplug and plug it back in for the light to go out. I liked putting in my laundry before I went to work in the mornings, but the light always went off within 2 min. My machine is only about 3 years old and I paid around $1200 for the set.

SOURCE: drum light stays on and wont let me start it again. Its dead but has light.. I have to power down the entire house to get it to start again

This solution worked however not fully. The same problem would occur after I turned the machine off or I ran a load and the machine powered down. It did correct itself however after I unplugged, hit power for 10 seconds, plugged back in, hit the power button, then walked away. When I returned, the lamp was off and I was able to turn on/off the washer on command. Hope this works for you as well.

Hi my hotpoint dryer wont turn please help


You have the belt on wrong. There is a side with numbers or writing on it and ribbed side like treads. The tread side should be facing down, making contact with the drum. If the other side is touching the drum then whenever clothes are put in the belt will slip causing the drum not to turn.

Drum light stays on and wont let me start it again. Its dead but has light.. I have to power down the entire house to get it to start again


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.

Zanussi washing machine drum will not go round at all


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
