My machine was in a bar that burned and has lots of smoke damage, is there a way to save it?
We were playing in a bar and over night the bar had an extensive fire and my machine received extensive smoke damage, there is no fire damage to the exterior but I can't get it to play. Is there a way to save my music?

You have a tub "Balance" bearing that is Shot! Goner! Dead! And your Tub may be a goner too! Depending on the extent of damage, you said you saw SMOKE! I never seen smoke from a washer unless someone throws a Concrete Block Stone in one on You Tube! ON PURPOSE! You have to weigh the age of machine vs the price of a new/USED one. If your machine is over 7 years old. Get a new One! Not a LG for goodness sake. Get a Whirlpool or a Maytag. I just bought a used one (Whirlpool) for $150. Still works 2 years later right next to the Dead $1600 LG I bought 6 years ago! The man I bought it from is in Rosamond, Ca. right by Edwards AFB. He has a garage full of them and guarentees his machines. There are a lot of people that do this. New is Not always the best!
hi. white smoke would normally mean water is being burn in the cylinder. if it is a sweet, sugary smell then the head gasket is almost certainly blown. greyish smoke with an burnt oily smell would point towards the turbo oil seals being the problem.
either way, this should be checked properly and quickly by a specialist to find exactly what the problem is. if either of these problems are left to develop, it could result in serious engine damage, and costly repairs. if sorted soon enough, it could save you a lot of money.
Many times if the wiring becomes loose in the connection box itself (where the house wiring connects to the machine itself). The wire nuts will burn out and create quite a smell. I have seen this numerous times where aluminum wiring was connected to dishwashers. (Note, make sure breakers are off to the circuit before removing the cover to inspect as the leads may be in contact with the metal cover) If this is not the problem, I would recommend having a licensed electrician over.
You did a lot of damage, and replacing the fuse and trying it has caused much more.
There will be about seven blown parts on the amp and a dozen on the power supply. To give you an idea of the extent, the WHOLESALE parts cost is roughly $50, including the main power supply switchers IGBT's which cost nearly $20 for the pair by themselves.
I have repaired several of these and the larger cousin the PMP5000. It is a lot of skilled work to repair these.
The cause is a marginal insulation between layers of the multi-layer amplifier board. Usually the rearmost amp arcs between the layers. This fries three big switching transistors followed sometimes by a metering resistor and two small surface mounted transistors. A zener diode often goes. The cancer and burned area has to be ground out with a dental drill and new wire replaces the blown circuit traces.
If you are under warranty, take the unit for replacement.
The thing that can arc the amp is if speaker leads are marginal or get pulled out while under power. Excessive volume, especially pulses at high level can break down the insulaton causing the arc and failure. The black smoke is likely from the metering resistor.
White smoke is usually associated with burning antifreeze in an automobile engine, but in this case, trying to cut wet wood might be suspect. The chain must be properly sharpened and the teeth cut toward you on the bottom run of chain. When the chain is properly adjusted, it should not droop from the lower edge of the bar, but no so tight that you can't turn it by hand. Forcing a poor cutting chain into the kerf will overheat the chain and cause it to become loose quickly. Hope this helps!
If it's smoking you have a serious electrical problem in the unit. Unless you're experienced in electrical problems call a repair service for this one. It's not worth burning the house down to save money on this one.
