LG Front Loader made a bang noise.

My wife rang me today and said that the LG front loader washing machine model WD-8050FH made a bang noise and then there was a burning smell. This happend after about 10 seconds at the start of a wash cycle. I cannot open the door and need to know how to do it with or without power. Also, when I put the machine into test mode it dings 7 times, all lights do come on. Please Help.

Re: LG Front Loader made a bang noise.

Door Eventually Opened. Checked all components and found that a thyristor on the main PCB had blown up. The main board is all encased in a epoxy resin so I am forced to buy a complete new unit instead of fixing it. The thyristor costs a couple of bucks but the complete board costs heaps. Who ever designed the system like this must have been in cahoots with the parts supply section. They obviuosly made sure of their future trade.

Hi just read your posting.Sounds like the door lock switch is faulty.Do you get any error codes on the display?Check the door latch that is attached to the door.It is the little hook that latches into the door lock switch.The tension on the hook should be quite firm.Please reply with answers to the question and the condition of the door latch.Looking forward to your reply.

LG front loader WD 8050FH

Be sure to remove the pin catcher assembly, at the bottom front right of the machine. Usually a small door at lower right side. Tip machine back and unscrew the large handle and remove to clean.

Error display "CL" - what to do?

THe child lock is on. Mine came on for some random reason. On my LG front loader there is a button on the right hand side with a cartoony picture of a child and a padlock. Press this.
