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.

SOURCE: washing machine blown fuses

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?

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.

I have an LG WM2277HW washing machine. My wife went in this morning to do some laundry and the thing is completely dead. No lights or signs of life. I checked the house circuit and the power to the...

Make sure the noise filter connectors are clean and connected properly. Get yourself a multimeter and check the voltage both on the load side and line side of the noise filter. It should read the same at 120VAC. The noise filter is the board before the main board. Replace it if the voltages on its load and line side are not the same.

The main board is not serviceable and must be replaced if faulty. It has a fuse and if it is blown, the main board is probably faulty. Look at the two brown capacitors on the top left of the main board. Next to it is a heat sink and to its right is a white "fuse-like" component with silver ends. That is the main board fuse. If it is blown, disconnect all the connectors from the main board except the one connecting it to the noise filter. Jump a single thin strand of wire in place of the fuse and apply power to the machine. Check if the power LED indicator on the main board lights up. If it does not, the main board is dead, replace it.

Please do not hesitate to update me about your findings above for further guidance if necessary.
