Question about LG WM3677HW 3.7 cu.ft. Front Load Washer and Dryer

2 Answers

No Power We used this machine for 3 months; it powered down in the middle of a cycle, and now will not turn on at all. We've checked the outlet and cord, and there was no problem there. What could the problem be?

You will need to remove the top of the machine and check some voltages with a volt/ohm meter.
Please post the exact model and serial numbers from the machine and I will try to walk you through the troubleshooting process.
Thanks, Mike

    Thanks for the numbers. The only information I have is from a 2002 training program. Your machine was built July of 2006 so I hope this information helps you.

    I understand your problem to be that nothing is lighting up on the control panel. This is what the manual says about this problem.



    Remove the top panel from the machine and follow the power cord to the main power control board. Make sure you have 120v where the cord plugs to the board. There is a red LED on the board, If it is not lit up, replace the main control board. If it is lit up the problem is probably the display board, but could also be the main control board. Replace one, if that doesn't fix it, replace the other one.



    There should be a tech sheet in the machine when you remove the top that may have more detailed diagnostics. One of the biggest problems we have with LG is the lack of support information to troubleshoot problems but they make up for it with the price of their parts. You can buy the main board and display board together for less than $150. You can go to sears.com, click on parts, enter your model number and see parts diagrams and lists for your machine. They are kind of high on their parts but they have the best parts database I have found online.

    Let me know what you find out or if I have misunderstood your problem. I will try to find a service manual and let you know if I find any more information.

    Thanks/Mike

    I found another repairman that had a service manual for your machine. It gave the same instructions for diagnosing your problem as the info I posted earlier.

    Let me know what you find out.

    Thanks, Mike

    I almost forgot, Your machine has a 2 year warranty on the electronic control board. This covers the part only, not the labor. The phone number to find an LG servicer is 1-877-714-7486, or go to www.lgservice.com

Hi the problem is more than likely an internal fuse on the circuit board to do repair yourself youll need to get schematics and a multimeter and test the fuses on the board but as you have only had it for 3 months it should be covered by at least a 12 month warranty

    Also have you checked the fuse in the plug if this is fine then its going to be circuit problem

LG washer #WM2655HVA won't start again after a cycle, unless unplugged, hand-turn drum, makes a beep, static spark as plugged back in, then a new cycle begins. Why?


Have you checked the wall power outlet for proper ground and
polarity? Try using another outlet near by using a "heavy duty"
3 prong extension cord. If problem persist chances are the Main
PCB is bad.

Printer cycles on/off and displays "improper shut down"


Got the same problem following a message "Printer ink failure" code 0xc19a0035. Instructions say to shut down using button on/off. But printer refused to shutdown. After 30 minutes, I disconnected power cable. Removed cartridges. Reloaded cartridges. Reconnected power cable and got "Improper shutdown" message with continuous cycle. Solution: 1. While the printer is still turned on, unplug all cables and cords at the back of the printer.
2. Unplug the power cord also from the wall outlet...
3. Wait for two minutes.
4. Reconnect power cord to the wall outlet first.
5. Press and hold the pound (#) and six (6) buttons.
6. While holding down the two buttons, reconnect the power cord to the back of the printer and after two seconds, release pound and six buttons.
7. Turn on the printer if it turns off... and it's fixed.
