Question about LG WM-2277HW Front Load Washer
I hope you have used a multimeter to check the inlet valves/solenoids. There are two wires connected to each solenoid on the water inlet valve. Remove the connections to the inlet valve, firmly pull out the connectors. You can use pliers to remove the connectors, clean/replace the connectors if found dirty. Use a multimeter to test for continuity, set the multimeter to RX1 or RX10 setting Touch one probe to each terminal, CE or E or infinite reading indicates a bad inlet valve. Test the other valves in the same way. Some resistance value indicates a good valve.
Make sure the inlet hose/s is not blocked. Also, clean the water inlet screen. Make sure the water pressure is not low. Please check the exploded diagram below---
Note-- Label the wires prior to removal so you can remember how to reconnect them. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

If the washer won't fill you'll need to check for the water
inlet hose, the water inlet valve and the pressure/water level switch assembly.
Inspect the inlet hose coming to the washer for any blockages. If the hose is
not clogged then check the water inlet valve for any clogs, if the water will
not even fill for few seconds then certainly the water inlet valve is bad and
should be replaced. You can also use a multimeter to check continuity on inlet
valve. If you don't get any value on the multimeter then you'll need to replace
the water inlet valve assembly. However, if the valve is fine then the
pressure/water level switch assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps...
