Question about LG WM-2277HW Front Load Washer

Control panel lights up but washer will not run

We just installed an LG WM2277HW last night. When the power is turned on, the control panel will light up and beep but that is all. Turning the dial or pushing *any* of the buttons has no effect. The start/pause button just blinks. Seems to be stuck in this state. Any ideas? Thanks!

Re: Control panel lights up but washer will not run

Press "end of cycle" button to clear screen. Maybe your previous washer was here........drain pipe.
Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too. Important: height of drain hose is abt 3 feet from ground level.

Rate me pl.....if helped.

LG Washer WM2277HW wont turn on what can I do?

I would try plugging it into a different self dedicated outlet. It also might be the internal plug connection. Use a heavy duty extension cord to see if it works off a different circuit.

"LG Tromm WM2277HW will not

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

LE error in your LG front load washer is displayed when either the motor is not working or the control board thinks that the motor is locked up. A Hall effect sensor is used in these washer which monitors the speed and direction of the motor and then forwards this information to the control board. Hope you understand by now that this LE error is displayed when their is an issue with the motor or when the hall effect sensor sends wrong signal to the control. Conclusion is you'll have to check both motor and hall sesor and replace the part# that is bad, usually I have seen the sensor going bad. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

How do I take off the front panel

At the very bad of the machine take out the phillips head screws which pass through an L shaped part (which is attached to the top) into the back of the washer. (the L part should stay with the top) Slide the top back about two inches and lift off. Remove dispenser drawer by pushing down on the center tab at the back of the dispenser drawer, then remove one screw behind dispenser drawer front and one screw at each upper corner of control from back side of control. Panel is still held by tabs across top. Be careful, as there are sharp areas here. Detach all electrical plugs from control, and it should be loose in your hands now.

Lg wm2277hw washing machine

sorry to say it but i think you still have a faulty hall sensor.
Try another one and send the last one back as being faulty.
It means the motor gets the power but the hall sensor stops it dead in its track

I have an LG WM2277HW washer, and just started getting a "PF" error code. When I powered it up, it would act normal, but after starting a cycle, it would spin for just a couple of seconds, then...

On your main control board make sure all the plug in wire connectors are making a positive grab on the control board and also the un balanced sensor
