Question about LG WM2016C
My LG front loading Washer (18 months old, LG WM2016C) just started tripping the dedicated GFI breaker at the end of every cycle. Do I need an electrician (house is also 18 mos old) or a washer repair person? Any thoughts on cause or why now? Has anyone else had this problem and had it fixed out of warranty?
That to me seems like an electrical problem. Every now and again you can get a bad GFCI receptacle that will constantly keep tripping. I would also see that the GFCI is properly sized for the circuit. It needs to be a 20 AMP circuit (just dedicated to the washer) and a 20AMP GFCI receptacle. The way to tell is the 1 of the three prongs of the 20AMP GFCI will be in the shape of a "T" while a 15 AMP will have 2 straight prongs and the ground prong. Hope this ws helpful, don't go spilling any money into your washer without getting that fixed first, because it doesn't seem like a washer problem.
