    Open top washer lid. You will find the main computer board on the left back side. Disconect the yellow plug . that's a relay in the board hit it a few times with something gently, this will un stuck the relay that's causing you the issue, plays it back and try it on.
    I have fixed 3 of them by doing this.
    Hope it help anyone having same issue.

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.

    I did just like it says to do. That solved the problem. I glad I looked at this websight. Thought I was looking at a new circuit board or even worse, a new washer from what I've seen other people posting on LG front loader washers.
    Thanks again

    When we do this, and plug back in the machine automatically comes on and it eventually powers off but the light stays on

CoolRod41,

That is a terrible answer! Someone is asking how to solve a problem with the drum light, and you tell them to buy a new washer?!? You are terrible!

MY ADVICE IS TO BUY A NEW WASHER. I INVESTIGATED LG ON THE INTERNET LAST NIGHT AND I HAVE READ ALOT OF COMPLAINTS ABOUT LG PRODUCTS. I ALSO READ THAT LG DOESN'T STAND BEHIND THEIR PRODUCTS. I HOPE THIS IMFO HELPS. HOW OLD IS YOUR WASHING MACHINE?

    I just noticed my drum light on all the time the other day. I shouldn't have to unplug and plug it back in for the light to go out. I liked putting in my laundry before I went to work in the mornings, but the light always went off within 2 min. My machine is only about 3 years old and I paid around $1200 for the set.

SOURCE: 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

This solution worked however not fully. The same problem would occur after I turned the machine off or I ran a load and the machine powered down. It did correct itself however after I unplugged, hit power for 10 seconds, plugged back in, hit the power button, then walked away. When I returned, the lamp was off and I was able to turn on/off the washer on command. Hope this works for you as well.

Door is closed and the light stays on. after a while non of the buttons will work any suggestions.


I have the same problem but my interior drum light stays on whether door is open or closed; in either case the control panel becomes in-operable after about five minutes. I unplug the machine for 5 to 20 minutes then plug it back in and it is powered "on" the moment I plug it in (i don't even have to push the power button). Then the light remains on but i am able to operate the control panel so i can do a load of clothes. Then if the machine sits idle for no more than five minutes, the control panel becomes in-operable again and the interior drum light stays on.

Any one have a clue???

My wm2487hwma lg washer wont come on, drum light is on, but everthing else is out , no power. Unplugged washer and reset at fuse box, power came on, but same problem occurred.


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.

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.

Whirlpool front loader washing machine (AWO3361) WONT DRAIN


Remove drain hose from where it connects to the plumbing under the sink/tub. Inspect the spigot. If clogged, clean. If clean, then tilt machine back and remove drum to pump hose from pump. Check hose and also drain pump. Clear any obstructions.
