LG washing machine not working

The main circuit in the washing machine has an integrated fuse on it. When the washing machine stopped working I looked at the board and saw the blown fuse. This is the one I have replaced. It still keeps blowing when power supplied to it..?? Can anyone offer any help?? The circuit board is the one they fill with plastic/gel to seal the components.

Hi - had a similar problem with about 3 different makes of washing machine - the RCD switch on the main household fuse box was continually tripping . Nobody could give me a right answer . Eventually ended up with a Hotpoint . Felt sorry for the delivery guys from the electrical retailers having to keep dragging machines in and out .

SOURCE: fuse keeps blowing out in my maytag washing machine

the power surge probably shorted out something in the main wire harness or fried your motor. remove the screws from the control panel and look for any wires that are discolored, charred or disconnected. in the event you do't find it there trace the wiring thru the cabinet looking for the same thing. if you don't find that, replace the motor

well, seems to me that you are using too much juice for the circuit, which implies a SERIOUS issue with the machine. perhaps the motor is locked, or something in control panel is shorted out?

SOURCE: Candy Eclipse washing machine blows the circuit breaker

It's possible that the current rating of the MCB is too low to run your washing machine PLUS all the devices plugged into the other sockets on the same circuit. If possible, try plugging in the washing machine on a circuit with fewer or no other appliances plugged in. MCB's are much faster tripping than circuit breakers and are rated to trip at the current rating on them. Circuit breakers, may carry a current slightly over the rated current which may be why it never happened before. The permanent solutions (if the overloaded circuit is the problem) would be to install a circuit solely for the washer and dryer or install a MCB with a higher current rating. The latter solution is not practical, however, since an overload on lower power devices may never reach the current rating of the MCB creating a hazardous shock potential.

Have a Kenmore washer, model 501-4002 which just stopped working mid-cycle. I heard a pop coming from machine that sounded like a fuse blowing. Does this model have a fuse?

Normally all the power units come with a protection and it is necessary to remove the mains power before you can investigate into the board. If the fuse had blown or there is a safety trip then check for some serious short within the power, the motor or inlet valve/drain pump circuit.

My machine wont power on. I checked the outlet and it is fine.

you have blown the fuse on the main board. you will need to check short circuits in your pump and motor, and for leaks onto any electrics, and then replace the motor control board (or try to replace fuse on board if other components look fine ie no burn marks)

When this occurs it is a sign that you have a defective washer main control circuit board, this circuit board is the brains of the washer and it located behind the main control panel of the washer.

I have a Fisher Paykel Smartdrive 9. As it was in its final minute of the last spin cycle all of a suddden every light came on, it beeped and then died. Now there is no power. I have inspected wal

You need to check the glass fuses, first you have to removethe touch-pad control center, and you will see the glass fuses. Disconnect power from wall socket, and then removeglass fuses. Look at the color of fuses tosee if they have look blown. If theylook brown or black, you have a short circuit and you will in all probabilityneed a new replacement main board. If they do not look blown, brown/black, check them with an ohmmeter tosee if they have gone open circuited (brown out), if so replace them, plug in,and try machine. Do not use Aluminum cigarette paper as an alternative toproper fuses. Always be extremelycareful and safety conscious when replacing fuses.

Error code le on washing machine wm-1480fhd.... drum stops spining in certain directions and then stops with the error code :LE

Well, according to the LG error look up table:

LE Locked motor error. Cause: The connector (3-pin), male,white) in the motor harness is not connected to the connector. (3-pin,female,white) of stator assembly. Or the electrical contact between the connectors. (3-pin,male,white) in the motor harness and 4-pin,female,white connector in the main PWB assembly is bad or unstable. Or the motor harness between the stator assembly and main PWB assembly is cut (open circuit) Or the hall sensor is out of order/defective.

Decoding the techno speak, this means that the little rev counter, built on to the back of the motor and connected by 3 wires has either come loose, fallen off, failed or its wires are unplugged. The result is the machine can't figure what speed the motor is running at, so it shuts it down.

The washer shuts down in mid cycle

Hello. LG washing machines come in a widevariety of models, each with unique features, functions and design. Many of thebasic functions of each model are universal when it comes to running the washcycle. If the washing machine stops in the middle of a wash cycle, the firststep that should be taken is to perform troubleshooting steps to determine thecause of the problem. After the source of the trouble has been established, itcan be resolved in most cases by continuing the troubleshooting process. 1 Make sure the lid is completely closed. Certain partsof a wash cycle will not start if the lid is not closed.
2 Check the load to see whether it isunbalanced. If the washer gets off balance, it may stop in the middle of acycle. Redistribute the clothing so that it is evenly balanced around the drum.
3 Make sure the hot and cold water faucetsconnected to the washing machine are turned on fully. If the washing machine isnot getting enough water, it will not be able to complete the cycle.
4 Inspect the drain hose for clogs orobstructions. The washing machine may stop if it is unable to drain waterproperly. Check the drain pipe that the hose feeds into for clogs or debris.
5 Check the house's circuit breaker panel orfuse box. The circuit may have been tripped or a fuse may be blown. Replace anyblown fuses and reset any tripped circuits.
