Question about LG WM-2277HW Front Load Washer

1 Answer

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!

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.

How do I reset the control panel? Other ideas?

Hello. If your unit is running continuously, the timer/control board is defective and needs to be replaced. I need the make/model number to help you accurately. If you have the mechanical timer(round knob that turns), it's not advancing(no repair possible). If the unit has an electronic control, the program quite possibly is corrupted--or a relay is stuck causing the problem. Have you had a power outage recently--3-4 weeks ago? These are notorious for damaging the control boards from the current surge when power is restored. I hope I helped you--definitely give me the model number, thanks!

LG 32LH2000 My TV was turned of last night in the usual way, the power turned off on the remote control, then the power supply switched off and the plug removed. This morning I attached the power...

most LG have a "vacation switch" on the bottom right hand side of the set very near that standby light.

it is placed poorly, where you can accidently click when grabbing the TV to move it or swivel it.

it is a toggle switch, a "master power" switch.

you may have bumped it to the off position. flip the switch, your standby light will come back on.

"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.

I started my washer last night then went to check on it and it was not on. I tried to turn it on but no power. I checked the breaker and it flipped the bresker so I turned it back on. When I push the power...

If the breaker tripped, something shorted to ground in your control panel. You resetting the breaker and pushing the power button then cause something to burn further. I would suggest turning off the breaker then taking the control panel off to see where the "burning smell and small amount of smoke" came from. Look to see if a wire was rubbing against metal somewhere.

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

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
