    The machine has no clothes in it and the water had been shut off all day to fix a shower. When the water was turned back on I went to put in a load and the washing machine was full of water and we are unable to drain the water out. The lights are all on and it lets me choose drain and spin but no motor action. It just sits there. Thanks if you can help!

    I have the same exact problem as described. Following the instructions in the troubleshooting section of the manual does not result in an error code.



    Was anyone else able to resolve this problem? If so, your assistance would be appreciated!


    Thanks in advance,
    Rick

If nothing works, no water and no motor action, then it sounds like a door switch or door lock problem. Check to make sure door is properly shut and switch is operating.

Robert. You have a bad water valve OR completely clogged up filter screens on the valve. My past experience with this machine with this type of problem is to replace the valve assembly. part Number W10364988

LG WM2487H*M Drum light stays lit after each load is completed


Solution. Unplug the machine. Hold the power button for 10 seconds. Plug back in. Push the power button and the washer should turn on. Walk away leaving the machine on. When I did this, I came back to find the drum light off and machine would start on command now. Good luck.
