Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry but with such a major fault it is virtually impossible for anybody on this forum to remotely guess what is wrong with your washer.
It could be absolutely anything- internal wiring/plugs sockets, control panel switches, control PCB, etc.etc.
I fear that you only real option is a service call as the engineer will have the right equipment to safely diagnose what is wrong.
Sorry again and good luck,
John C

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.

LG Washer trips dedicated breaker


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.

Washer tripped breaker on elec. panel, reset, washer won't turn o


This sounds like something has shorted causing the breaker to trip. You definitely need a qualified LG repairman to check it out.

It powered off by it's self and now i can't get it to turn back on.


Try unplugging the machine, then check to make sure the wall oulet has proper voltage. If not, check your household breaker panel for a tripped breaker, then plug your washer back in and try it. If it's not a breaker (or possibly a fuse or GFCI outlet that's tripped), try spinning the drum quickly by hand to see if it "powers up" momentarily. If it does not, you may have more serious issues. However, unplugging LG washers for up to 24 hours seems to take care of a lot of their problems (for awhile, anyway).

LG Tromm WM2277H washer won't start after tripping breaker


no fuses only control boards.with power off pull the top off and check wires at your power supply board(not the one with buttons). Look for burn or damaged wires. no luck with that, will probably need power board(usually the board that goes out). Call LG and speak to cust service....sometimes will cover the board.

LG S36AHP-UD7 Split Air Con. won't turn on.


Generally when an ac trips the main breaker and the breaker its self isn't bad, the compressor is going bad or is bad. To check you will need to do an ohms test on the compressor. If you get a reading of less than infinite, then the compressor is bad. You will need to test every lead going to the compressor which is usually 3 unless you have a crank house heater installed but they are not typical on a small unit. If the compressor has gone bad it is possible the it took the board out as well.

the breaker is likely worn out, have that checked by service person first, then check that machine does not need to be lubed etc. for too high a load on the circuit.
