Question about LG WM-2277HW Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Washer WM-2277HW and Dryer wont turn on after power outage.

We had a power surge/outage a couple of days ago and the washer and Dryer would not turn on at all.  The breakers were reset and checked for power but the Washer and Dryer would not show signs of life.


I was thinking that there is an internal fuse that can be changed inside the appliance but can't find it.


Please help me with this urgent issue.

GE Front Load Washer has no power after a power outage. Main breaker has been reset and we have unplugged the unit from the wall. Door is still locked and no lights come on at all.

there could be a fuse in the control board that you can look at
other than that get in a technician as the unit could be damaged from the power surge

Displays on maytag neptune washer and dryer won't come on after a power outage

It may have burnt the main controls out on circuit boards or this sounds silly but check your breakers, did you have a power surge before the outage?

Model ATF6000751. Replaced speed control board a month ago when final spin failed. Worked fine until yesterday. Could something else be causing the board to go bad?

Power Surges. In my area we suspect that 70 to 80% of the repairs here are caused by power surges. They happen all the time, andyou do not have to lose power to have one. They can happen when you have lightning, windstorms or beutiful sunny days. You have to have a 2000 joule surge protector or higher on your washer, refer, microwave oven, and gas stove or dryer if you have them. For your washer , gas dryer, and refer you have to have a rectangular box wall mount surge protector. You cannot have a power strip surge protector on a cord as moisture can get into it and cause electrical fires. I have seen three major fires caused by power strips behind washers. Lowes and Best Buy sell wall mounted box surge protectors with a 2150 joule rating that have 3 plugs on each side that rotate from front to the side so that you can plug your refrigerator into the side and not have the refer sit out from the wall any more. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists.

Dishwasher won't start. Electrical breaker is on.

Sounds like your door switch, You can try to adjust this usually it is just two screws on the unit where the latch is.

My washer will not turn on. We had an uneven load a few days ago and now it will not turn back on. HELP!!

Do you have the owners manual? Look in there for any reset info. Check to see if the circuit breaker for the power outlet popped. Try unplugging the washer and then wait a minute and plug it in. If the motor got hot it might have a reset button on it.

Power surge and breaker went off, turned it back on and washer comes on but not the dryer, is there a reset button

The dryer is on a different circuit as it is 240 volts. Look in your breaker box and find the breaker for it (it should be tripped half way). Turn it completely off and then back on. There is no reset button for it. Make sure the plug is securely pushed all the way into the outlet.
