I have an LG washer slightly different model but had the same problem. It washed the clothes but then the light would stay on but the washer would not turn back on. Remove door switch unplug wire that conects and check the connections. which requiered taking off the top and front of the washer. Mine were corroded after only 2 years. We cleaned the connection and it seems to be working fine again.

Washer has no power.

difficult to be certain as I haven't looked at it, but it sounds like it started with a suspension problem which may have damaged the wiring loom as the drum bounced, this can cause a short circuit ( tripped electrics) may have caused a problem with the main pcb,
if you push on the front of the drum, does it move more than usual?, how old is the machine?

LG Washer WM2277HW wont turn on what can I do?

I would try plugging it into a different self dedicated outlet. It also might be the internal plug connection. Use a heavy duty extension cord to see if it works off a different circuit.

OK, let's try this: Open the door and (with an empty washer) give the drum a hard spin (either direction) by hand. This uses the direct drive motor to in effect become a generator, and should light up the control. If control lights up only momentarily, then no line voltage is getting to the display board. I would suspect the line filter first. Take the top cover off by removing the lower screws on the plastic clips on the back side of the washer's top. Stand in front of machine and use the palms of your hands to sharply push back on the L and R edges of the top, about 2 inches, then lift top off. Track power cord into washer and on to a small rectangular box. (the line filter, which contain a non-replaceable fuse) Check if power is going in and comming out (heading for the main board) If power in but no power out, replace filter. After the filter, the power goes to the main board, which is in the top back Left hand corner. It has a plastic cover over it. When the machine is powered up, there is a red LED on the board itself which lights up.
Note: on a working machine which is connected to power, you can do the drum spin and the display board will light and remain on, without touching the power button.

That's about as much help as I can do from here. If you need more help, I suggest you contact an authorized LG servicer in your area. (find one from LG at 800-256-0000)

These are very good machines. I know of one guy, runs 10 loads a day, 365 days a year through his LG. Can't say he's never had a problem, but he is very satisfied and probably does more loads each year than that old Whirlpool did in 20.

The lights on my LG WM2016CW will not come on.

While looking for the fuse, which I could not find despite opening up the machine from the back (and vacuuming underneath--yuck!), I left the washer unplugged for about 30 min. From reading other forums and such, I realized that unplugging for a little while is often the solution because the prolonged (at least 5 min) lack of power triggers the system to reset. Sure enough, when I went back to plug it in and give up for the night, the thing worked fine. Good luck to anyone else out there!

Lg washing machine drum light stays on and wont let me turn the

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.

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.
