    Door is not locking. Checked ohms .7to .8 across the board. Normally when i choose a cycle and hit start button door locks and then water starts. Now when i choose a cycle nothing happens at all, light just continues to flash.Also tried QCtest mode nothing happens.

Good sign if the machine lite up and everything else is working. check the door latch switch, if the switch is faulty, the machine wont turn on its a safety device.

Re:"the door does not lock. The start button continues to flash and nothinghappens when you push it.Its done this a few times before but it hasalways started before."

If there is no error code on display, that means that either door lock or timer control board is causing your problem.

Door lock is tested reading Ohm with a multimeter to check if the latch switch is opening and closing the circuit.
If the lock switch is OK, then the technician will check if there is power to door latch, then test control timer board and eventually replace control board.

If the door is locking, then following parts must also be tested:
Lid switch, membrane switch, drain system, inlet valve. MCU and motor. If door lock is OK also ensure that the belt has not slipped out.

If door lock is stuck, then it is door lock or control board.

Here below all parts and diagrams for your appliance.

You are a little short on information here to fully trouble shoot your issue. If the door locks when you push the start, but nothing else, that would indicate a water fill issue. If pushing the start button has absolutely no response, then it sounds like the control board containing the push to start is the most likely culprit. It is possible that an electrical plug on one of the boards is not tight and therefore not making contact. I can not give more complete info without more info from you, including the full model and at least the first three numbers of the serial number. (found on the frame just inside the door)

LG Tromm Steam Washer Cycle is complete and the stuff is so wet that they have to wrung by hand to even put they on a clothes line. Can washer be put on spin only? How?


call a technician as it indicates that the cycle from rinse, spin is not progressing to spin only
rinse,spin is a low speed spin to facilitate the rinse and to balance out the clothes ready for the fast speed spin cycle

My LG Tromm dryer makes 3 clicking sounds when I push the start button. Everything lights up as if it is going to work, but when "start" is pushed, I just hear the 3 clicks and then nothing happens


If the drum doesn't turn, check the centrifugal switch on the motor shaft. Check if the belt hasn't broken or if it's off the motor shaft.

How may belts on lg tromm dryer


The start button is a momentary start button. It energizes a relay type switch to keep power on. Try holding the start button in for awhile and do not let go. If the machine keeps running, then for sure, the relay type switch is defective and needs to be replaced with a new one.

LG Tromm washer wont spin through the spin cycle and reads error ue. I have tried to balance the load several times and still get the same error.


This error generally happens when people try to run a bulky load, like a coat, rug, pillow, etc., using a high speed spin. For these loads, choose the low speed spin. After the cycle completes, if you think the clothes are too wet, power up the machine again but instead of choosing a cycle, just push the spin speed button until it shows the next higher spin speed (usually about 14 minutes will show on the display) and push start. The machine will usually be able to get to a faster speed now, as the clothes have some of the water spun out of them from the earlier low speed spin, allowing the machine to reach a higher spin speed without the Unbalance Error code showing up. Of course, you want to make sure the machine is on a solid floor with all the legs adjusted properly also.

Lg tromm front loading washing machine has


Yes the system is cloghed. Pull the detergent drawer out and clean the drawers housing. try using some bleach. It allways helps.

BE ADVICED: after using bleach run quick wash cycle on without any load, it's just to get rid of all bleech remains and not to damage your clothes

Update me about your progress
