Buttons not working on lg washer

It takes me about 10 tries to get the washer going. 9 out of the 10 times I turn the power button on, turn the cycle selector knob to Permenant Press or any other setting and try to adjust the temp with the wash/rinse button and that button seems to be not working at all. I tried just turning the selector knob to various cycles and pushing the start/stop button, it does not do anything either. Then all of a sudden the buttons will work. All of the other buttons seem to work all of the time. Thanks for any help you can give.

    I have the same problem on my LG WM2077CW. So far repair boards have not fixed the problem. It has been repaired 3 or 4 times. It will work fine for a bit then start having the same problem again. All the other buttons work fine. The only button that doesn't work is the start button. Critical button.

    would the display board be covered under the computer board warrenty?

    I wonder if it can be related to the Delay Wash function somehow. I have similar problem. I cannot get the power on at all and suddenly when I look at the machine after a while it is on.

I had this problem with another model LG washer dryer and the problem was just the tiny switch (6mm x 6mm) on the circuit board had worn out. They cost about 30 pence on eBay and are very easy to remove and re-solder onto the circuit board as there are only 2 pins. This saved a huge amount of money for a new control board.

Sounds like the display board has a malfunction in the button controls and needs to be replaced.  Call a qualified LG tech to have it replaced and that should take care of the problem.

Could also be that the board has not been screwed on tight enough so it has a bit of play in it. You would have to check to see if the boards that are behind the display panel are on correctly.
It could also be a defect in the board.

Lg tromm manual


Problem is too much soap. Wrong soap. Press and hold: SPIN SPEED & SOIL LEVEL buttons--then press POWER button.
Wait for door to lock.

Press the START button (6) times--this will fill the tub with hot water to the maximum setting when it stops filling.

Press the START button two more times--this will enable the tub to tumble.
After 3 hours--turn "off" the washer.
Turn the washer back "on".
Select the shortest wash cycle (usually "quick wash") and press "START". This will rinse out the tub.

LG WM3987HW Washer Spining very wild


I've just uploaded a service manual.

relevant info pasted below: --

Regulate a specific spin speed that generates excessive vibration and noise as follows:
1) Put an unbalance part (rubber) inside of the drum.
(this is a special weight that service people use. It clips into the drum. If you don't have it, throw in about 4 to 6lbs of damp laundry.)

2) Start the QC test mode (Refer to section 7-2).
7-2 says turn the washer off, then press 'spin speed' and 'soil level' at the exact same time. Then, while holding both buttons, press power to start "QC test mode"

3) Press Delay Wash button, then ' tst ' is displayed on lcd
4) Press the Spin Speed button repeatedly to select Extra High.
5) Press the Quick Cycle button, the spin speed is displayed.
6) Press the Start/Pause button.
7) Press the Beeper button repeatedly to set spin speed (600, 800, 1000, 1200 rpm) and check if there is vibration
and noise.
8) If there is no vibration and noise, increase the spin speed by pressing Beeper button.
9) If there is vibration and noise, rotate the Cycle selector knob clockwise to reduce the Spin Speed (reduce by 50
and 100 rpm). In case of 600 rpm, it can not reduce the spin speed.
10) If vibration and noise are reduced, press the Quick Cycle button to store (2 beep sounds).
* If you want to return to factory default spin speed setting, repeat above steps except step 9)

Oe error code, cleaned filter, checked hose


You might be using too much detergent and causing a sudslock condition. The machine uses very little water and any amount over a teaspoon of HE will simply cause the machine to lock down. An OE error means it took longer than 10 minutes to drain the tub. IF the machine is trying to correct a sud problem it will continually toss in more water till sudslock is corrected. Press and hold: SPIN SPEED & SOIL LEVEL buttons--then press POWER button.
Wait for door to lock.

Press the START button (6) times--this will fill the tub with hot water to the maximum setting when it stops filling.

Press the START button two more times--this will enable the tub to tumble.
After 3 hours--turn "off" the washer.
Turn the washer back "on".
Select the shortest wash cycle (usually "quick wash") and press "START". This will rinse out the tub.
This method of "TUB CLEAN" is *not* from a service manual but has been the best method for cleaning out LG washers more than a year into incorrect detergent usage.

Drum light stays on and wont let me start it again. Its dead but has light.. I have to power down the entire house to get it to start again


I had the same problem. LG addressed the problems as follows:
1. Unplug the unit 2. Press and hold the power button for 10 seconds. 3. Plug the unit back in.
It WORKS!! It's like reseting your computer or alarm clock. You've got to kill the power and press and hold the on button while it's still unplugged.
Hope this works for you.

My LG washer, model wm2277hw gives me the OE on the display. I have cleaned out all the possible areas where it could be clogged around the pump, but still makes a bad noise when it gets to the rinse...


You may have a broken pump impeller - you will have to order the whole pump (the filter on this machine allows BIG stuff through and it can ultimately damage the impeller)

Have you run this through diagnostics and determined if it is the drain or recirculating pump?

To run diagnostics:

Press and hold the "Spin Speed" and "Soil Level" buttons at the same time - then hit the power on the button

All lights should display - Press the Start Pause button throught the following cycles:

1 - Tumble clockwise
2 - Low speed spin
3 - High speed spin
4 - Prewash inlet (let it run for a few seconds to put some water in the tub)
5 - Wash Inlet
6 - Hot Water inlet
7 - Bleach inlet
8 - tumble counter clockwise
9 - Heater
10 - Circulation pump (see if your noise occurs here)
11- Drain pump (let this run until the tub is empty)
12 - Power off, finished

Once you figure out which pump, order the correct replacelement

Is there a reset button on the LG front load washer


No button, but LG customer service says unplugging the unit for 1 hour and then holding the power button while turning it on will reset the computer.

In my experience this does work, but I don't think it resets absolutely everything.

Another time I had a problem LG customer service told me to unplug the unit, hold the power button for 60 seconds and then plug it back in. I can't confirm if this works or not, but it is worth a try first (60 seconds is a lot shorter than 60 minutes...).

Press the "End of Cycle Signal" button, the last button on the bottom right, for 5-10 seconds. That should resolve the problem.
