LG Washer wont start, no power

3 year old LG washer WM2277hwWill not start, no LED message or anything. Machine was powered, but just "blinked" and shut off all together. Checked power supply, power is being supplied. Pulled plug and let set. Tried again. No power or any power to display (no lights come on). Removed top panel and checked power to control panel circuit (front of machine). Found some signals going thru cables to circuit board.I'm assuming it is a main panel circuit or the circuit/panel board in front. What would I need to test to see if the main panel/circuit board is faulty? I had assumed that the front circuit board was faulty because I was not even getting light/LED coming on.

1) have replaced both display and main circuit boards
2) still no LED on main board

Make sure there's power getting to the washer. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power. Sometimes the power cord disconnects at the washer, if this is the case, the wiring must be repaired or replaced.

Led lights power and centrifugation problem

Hello Pedro, I am happy to assist you!

Often when a washer is blinking, it is because it needs to be reset to resume normal operations. Let's try reprogramming your washer by either flipping the household circuit breaker to the off position or unplugging it. It is necessary to wait approximately ten minutes and then turn your washer on. If resetting the power does not correct the issue, your washer could be experiencing a communication error with the control board or could have a wiring failure. I am fairly confident that an authorized service agent will be able to restore your appliance to its normal operating condition. You can often locate a qualified service technician on the manufacturer website.

My fronter loader LG is not powering up. My son put in a load before going to bed. When we woke up the next morning we realized the washer wouldn't power up and it had flipped the circuit breaker. I...

OK, let's try this: Open the door and (with an empty washer) give the drum a hard spin (either direction) by hand. This uses the direct drive motor to in effect become a generator, and should light up the control. If control lights up only momentarily, then no line voltage is getting to the display board. I would suspect the line filter first. Take the top cover off by removing the lower screws on the plastic clips on the back side of the washer's top. Stand in front of machine and use the palms of your hands to sharply push back on the L and R edges of the top, about 2 inches, then lift top off. Track power cord into washer and on to a small rectangular box. (the line filter, which contain a non-replaceable fuse) Check if power is going in and comming out (heading for the main board) If power in but no power out, replace filter. After the filter, the power goes to the main board, which is in the top back Left hand corner. It has a plastic cover over it. When the machine is powered up, there is a red LED on the board itself which lights up.
Note: on a working machine which is connected to power, you can do the drum spin and the display board will light and remain on, without touching the power button.

That's about as much help as I can do from here. If you need more help, I suggest you contact an authorized LG servicer in your area. (find one from LG at 800-256-0000)

These are very good machines. I know of one guy, runs 10 loads a day, 365 days a year through his LG. Can't say he's never had a problem, but he is very satisfied and probably does more loads each year than that old Whirlpool did in 20.

My servis 1200 rpm washing machine wont turn on- a light keeps flashing? possilbe problems?

I've cleaned the compartment at the bottom from hair, hairpins, coins etc... But the problem is, washer sometimes starts without any problems, and does the job properly from start to finish or just don't want to work for a few days! Hundred of times switched on and off - the same scenario. Power led switches of, there is a noise of some switch moving inside of the washer, then another led starts to blink (the one under the start button) and there is no way to run the program. Bloody machine :(

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.
