LG WM3001HPA Washer interior light is on but will not power up

Purchased this front load unit in Jan. 2009 and have LOVED it until recently. The tub light stays on constantly but the machine will not turn on when the power button is pushed. It will come on when disconnected and reconnected at the outlet and run through its wash cycles properly but when it is complete, again the tub light stays on and the machine will not power up. Any ideas?

Constantly runs the drain pump when started


You don't list the make or model or age but has it always done this? Some models will automatically run the drain pump first as part of their programming before starting the actual cycle. Then, the unit will sense the load, start adding water steadily until the correct amount is reached(based on sensed load size), then wash. However, if the drain pump is being initiated at the wrong time, or stays on and no water is able to stay in the tub, there could be a problem with the water level sensor--it thinks water is already in the tub. This usually happens from a blocked water sensor tube(a plastic tube that is connected from the bottom of the washer tub to the water level sensor). Or, the problem might be with the main washer control board.

I have a LG steam washer 4.2 cu. ft. that the display doesn't come on but has tub light on why doesn't display come on?


have you heard beep when you turn it on? if not washer is off. If it won't turn on could be the power button(or main baord). Compare the touch of power button with the other buttons. Light on means you have power coming to the washer. Thx

No problem as yet. Just purchased a whirlpool front load top of the line. The instructions are very good except I can't find any instructions regarding adjusting the water level for smaller and la


For the Whirlpool WFW96HEAC front-load washer, the water level adjustment is made by the washer based on the size of the load. If only 3-4 items are in the tub, it will do a small load. If you fill the tub completely, it will do a large load. (Note: if the clothes are packed into the tub, they can't tumble and won't get cleaned.) Loading the tub with clothes until it is 1/2 or 3/4 full are the other load sizes.

Please add a comment with the model of your washer, I'll be glad to give additional help. I hope this helps.

LE error on LG 2277HW


Over-sudsing is the main cause of LE error codes. Using non-HE (high efficiency) detergents or too much detergent will cause stress on the motor. In addition, detergent residue can also cause leaking and odor. Follow these steps to resolved an LE error code caused by over-sudsing.

Step 1: Unplug the washer and allow the unit to sit for 30 minutes to give the suds time to dissolve.

Step 2: Plug the washer back in and press [Power] to turn on the washer.

Step 3: Do not choose a washing cycle. Press the [Spin Speed] key until "No Spin" is selected.

Step 4: Press [Start/Pause] to begin a drain only cycle.

Step 5: After the drain only cycle has completed, remove the clothing items from the machine. Turn the power back on and select [Rinse and Spin] and then press [Start/Pause]. This will remove excess soap suds and light residue from the drum. Repeat this step until no visible suds are in the drum of the washer.


Has a large load size been used with a gentle wash setting?
Gentle wash cycles such as Perm Press, Delicates, Hand Wash, and Wool/Silk should only be used for smaller loads. Because the cycles are more gentle while tumbling and spinning, too many items in the drum can register as an issue with the motor. In this instance reset the unit and run a test rinse and spin cycle.


Has the washer been overloaded?
Single bulky items or large loads can add extra weight to the drum and place stress on the motor. Remove some of the clothing and restart. If the issue is still present after a few items have been removed, unplug the washer for 30 minutes to allow the motor to cool and then restart the cycle.

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

It's kinda odd for a replacement part to break so easily. I strongly suggest that you take it in to the dealership and ask if this is a common problem on this car. If few people have the same problem report then it may be considered as a recall.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

I recently moved to another house...Is the tub suppose to wobble or is it suppose to be evenly balanced?


the tub has stabilizers on it ... remove rear panel and make sure the shocks are still attached and or not broke... if all this looks good is the unit on a pedestal if so there have been alot of problems with lg washers and pedestals.... i know your saying well they sell them with the washer as a optional feature ,but they have been giving fits to lg for the last couple of years.... if the shocks look good then most likely you have a bad hall sensor located also in the rear of machine on the part called the stator .the stator is a round device that attaches to the rear of tub and has a copper coil that goes around the entire thing... on this device is a white plasetic device called a hall sensor that measures the spped and balance of unit if unit starts getting out of balance the hall sensor will slow machine down.... good luck to you

I recently moved and the movers removed two bolts from the back of the machine...should I replace those bolts


No do not replace the shipping bolts. I assume you have a front loading washer. The tub is secured by bolts during transport. Then they have to be removed so that the washer will operate properly without damaging the machine.

Many machine manuals are available online. For example, LG washers manuals are available at their site and under more information for models sold by Home Depot (http://www.homedepot.com/Appliances-Laundry-Clothing-Care-Washers-Front-Load-Washers/h_d1/N-5yc1vZ1xr5Zbv6h/h_d2/Navigation?langId=-1&storeId=10051&catalogId=10053&omni=c_Front%20Load%20Washers). The LG front loading washers use 4 bolts with retainers. If they are not removed, the machine will have severe vibration and noise. The vibration can damage the unit.

I hope this helps.

(if you have an top loading washer, shipping bolts are less common. If you provide the model of the washer, I'll see if it is one for which I know the shipping instructions.)
