SOURCE: No power; washer full of clothes; door locked.

check your power cord...you may need to replace it...or just tighten the screws that hold it in place. It is very easy to do, if I can do, so can you!! You can order a part on line or from a local repair shop.

SOURCE: front load washer. Door will not unlock get error

Sturdy little door, isn't it? Make sure you don't have extra water in the machine, as this will cause the door to not unlock. With that done,unplug your washer. If you can get the top of the machine off and reach down the front of the washer, you should see the latch mechanism. Push this down. Door should unlock. Now. Buy a new latch assemby.

Door lock dont always work


What door lock doesn't always work ? One or all of them . This is a complex set up for these door locks ! The switch is an input to the BCM - body control module . There is logic involved in the microprocessor , there are relays built in to the BCM ! Could have a DTC - diagnostic trouble code stored in the BCM ! Could be a bad connection at the BCM or master window switch ! A bad ground !
The power door lock system consists of the following components:
?€¢
Body control module (BCM)


?€¢
DOOR LKS fuse


?€¢
Driver door lock actuator


?€¢
Driver door lock switch


?€¢
GMLAN serial data link


?€¢
Keyless entry transmitter


?€¢
Passenger door lock actuator


?€¢
Passenger door lock switch


?€¢
Remote control door lock receiver (RCDLR)


The DR LCK fuse supplies battery voltage to the body control module (BCM) for the power door lock system. The BCM supplies and monitors a reference voltage to the driver and passenger door lock switches through the door lock switch lock/unlock signal circuit. Each door lock switch receives ground at G300 which is also the ground for the door lock and unlock relays located in the BCM. When a door lock switch is placed in the lock position, the reference voltage is switched to ground and the BCM senses 0.0 volts on the door lock/unlock signal circuit. When a door lock switch is placed in the unlock position, the reference voltage is switched to ground through a 1.5k ohm resistor that is internal to each of the door lock switches and the BCM senses approximately 2.9 volts on the door lock/unlock signal circuit. The BCM interprets what position the activated door lock switch was placed in based on the voltage drop.
The BCM, upon receipt of a lock or unlock switch signal, will switch the appropriate door lock/unlock relay coil control circuit to ground causing the appropriate door lock/unlock relay to energize. With the relay energized, voltage is applied to the door lock actuator control circuit causing the door to either lock, or unlock depending on what command was received from the power door lock switch or remote control door lock receiver (RCDLR). When a power door lock/unlock relay is not energized, the switch contacts are normally grounded through the BCM which provides ground to the appropriate door lock actuator for the lock/unlock function being performed. The power door lock/unlock functions are performed by reversing the flow of voltage through the door lock actuator control circuits. The BCM has three internal drivers for the power door lock system. Driver door unlock, passenger door unlock and all door lock. This is done to isolate the driver door lock actuator so it can be unlocked separately from the passenger door. For additional information concerning keyless entry, refer to Keyless Entry System Description and Operation.
This is one you may want to take to dealer or some other ASE certified repair shop ! To do this right you need a Tech 2 scan tool !
Ignition ON, observe the scan tool Door Lock Switch parameter while using the driver and passenger door lock switches. The parameter should change from Idle to Lock and Unlock.
?‡'
If the value does not change, refer to Door Lock Switch Malfunction.

Command the doors to LOCK and UNLOCK with the scan tool, the door lock actuators should LOCK and UNLOCK when changing between the commanded states.
?‡'
If one or more doors do not LOCK or UNLOCK, refer to Door Lock Malfunction.

My girlfriends LG wm3987hw just lost its power. the outlet is fine. there is absolutely no power getting to the machine. No lights, nothing. Anyone else have or had this problem? Fixable or DOA?


the wm3987hw has an internal fuse located on the "power connection noise filter", It's a transformer or something which cleans up the wall-supplied voltage a bit before it touches the expensive electronics.
You might just be able to replace just the fuse, otherwise the whole unit is part#6201EC1006T, about $50.
take the top off the unit (two philips screws on the top back) you will find the power noise filter on the top inside right wall of the unit. it's not terribly involved to do this fix yourself. 20minute job tops.

Rear doors will not unlock


Door Lock System Components
The power door lock system consists of the following components:
?€¢
The driver door switch (DDS)


?€¢
The passenger door switch (PDS)


?€¢
The body control module (BCM)


?€¢
The driver information center (DIC)


?€¢
The rear door lock/unlock relay (LBEC)


?€¢
The door lock actuators in each of the doors The rear passenger doors are controlled by the BCM through the rear door lock/unlock relay which is incorporated onto the printed circuit board in the LH BEC. The BCM controls the unlock relay by providing ground to energize the coil and controls the lock relay by providing battery voltage to energize the relay coil. The energized the relay and allows voltage to be applied to either the door lock motor lock or unlock circuits. Since the other side of the door lock actuator is connected to the normally closed contacts of the opposing relay to ground, the doors lock or unlock.
Do you know what the BCM is , body control module ! If you do not know about this stuff I strongly suggest you to it to a ASE certified repair facility ! Save yourself some money an aggravation !

The washer won't turn on. It is connected to the same electrical outlet as the dryer, however the dryer works fine. Is there a reset button on the machine or does this washer has a fuse that needs to be...


Ideally it is important that you trace the power cord to the machine and see that the mains voltage is present on the Main Program controller unit. Use a good multimeter to check on the AC voltage taking all the precaution required for safety.
You will find the fuse or trip switch if present on this section which can be rectified. ( you have not specified the make/model)
If there is power with no action the program controller unit can be faulty -- or if there is power to the motor without any action then the motor needs to be checked.

Have power at the outlet, nothing to the unit. worked fine last night. no clock no child reset not nothing. is there a fuse somewhere or a safety device?


There is a main fuse in the microwave oven, it is located under the keypad near the high voltage capacitor "silver and rectangular in shape" make sure unit is unplugged and dis-charge the high voltage capacitor for safety. I find the reason in most cases, that the fuse will blow if there is a defective door switch.

If you are still looking for a solution to this here it is:
In these machines if you try to change the setting of the washer knob without letting a cycle finish which is already set it may happen that the unit won't function properly and hence the unit needs to be reseted. There is a reset procedure for the same and let me know if you would like have the same.
If the door is not opening it is advisable to reset the unit first and then try opening the door which should work and also the door handle won't break then.
If you have already replaced the door handle on your machine it is fine or else you may want to order the same from appliancedesk.com

LG WM3431H Washer/Dryer won't start


If you are sure the unit is receiving power you can check for proper operation the door switch on unit which will kill power to unit if it is open. If it is ok, using a voltmeter you will need to trace the voltage at the control switch, etc.

I get an error code: F dU and my washer won't drain properly


I too, had the same issue with the door not opening. My solution was to unplug the power cord and then plug it back in and press the green button's as if to start a cycle and while it starts putting water into the washer I put my knee and weight into the door lock area and held pressure from my knee and press the red stop button until the lights went out, and I took my knee off the door lock area and opened the door!!! No taking off the lower panel.
If this works for you too please email me email4millers@cinci.rr.com.
