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?

Power button will not turn on dishwasher.

Make sure that power is reaching the control panel of your machine. Many people are offended when I tell them to check the fuse or circuit breaker to make 100% sure that the machine is receiving power.
If it is receiving power and not switching on, you will have to have the main control PC Board checked, out as this controls the entire machine. This is rather left to experienced persons.

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.
