Question about LG WM2455 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

LG front loading washer is turning itself on,then off

My LG washer began acting funny. In principle it washes normally. However, after use, and after the panel lights turn off (some unknown time after) the washer acts as if the power-on button was pressed. The chimes play and all the panel lights come on. Eventually all lights turn off and the panel buttons become un-responsive. If I pull the power cord and replug it, the washer resumes acting normal. But, eventually it turns itself on again, then powers down and I must pull the power cord and re-insert it.

    jhymel - did you ever get this fixed? What was the problem and how much did it cost you? I'm having exactly this problem with my LG washer.

    the other thing you can try is to unplug the washer from the power and hold the start button for 10-15 secs then plug the machine back in

My Kenmore high efficiency 3.5 cu. ft. front loader washer is acting funny. I start the normal cycle. It fills up with water. Washes., rinses, drains, then fills up slowly, to a point and then I get the...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

If you have checked that the hot and cold water taps are turned on fully and the hoses are not kinked or squashed at the back, it is worth while checking both the hot and cold water inlet filters. Turn the taps off and remove both hoses at the washer end. Inside each inlet port there is normally a little filter which should just slide out. Clean if necessary and replace each one and the hoses. If after turning the taps back on there is no improvement, the problem is symptomatic of a malfunctioning hot or cold water control valve. Sorry but it needs a service call ;-0(

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck,
John C

Washer won't turn on at times. It acts like it has no power. Unplugging electric cord from wall socket and reconnecting seems to reset the unit and it functions normally for a while. After an hour or...


Try this first, unplug the unit and connect it to a different outlet and see if it corrects the problem. If it still continues, you will need to replace the control board. Good luck.

Kenmore Elite H3 control buttons - some work some don't


The diagnostic function will not help you if your user interface board (UIB) is acting up because to put into diagnostic you have to select drain spin, then the no spin option, and hit the prewash button 4 times.

It sounds like your UIB is the problem.

Lg washer


funny enough LG water inlet valves are favorite for that problem. if you put the power off and the water still flows into the tub then the valve needs to be serviced. if it goes off when power is switched off but continues to fill after cycle is complete then board needs replacement.
