Pressure Sensor Test
If the pressure sensor is not operating correctly, perform the following test:
1. Set the wash cycle to SNEAKERS.
This cycle bypasses the load sensing feature and defaults to the minimum water level.
2. Measure the water level from the center hub of the infusor
(it should be approximately 2 inches deep in the tub).
3. Set the washer to COMFORTER.
This cycle bypasses the load sensing feature and defaults to the maximum water level.
4. Measure the water level from the center hub of the infusor
(it should be approximately 11 inches deep in the tub).
Note: Before disconnecting the hose from the pressure sensor,
be sure the water level is below the bottom of the spin basket.
To remove the pressure sensor:
1. Remove the 2 Phillips head screws that hold the Backsplash in place.
2. Place a towel over the lid of the washer to prevent scratches to the surface.
Gently lift each corner of the backsplash, then roll it forward so it rests on top of the washer.
3. Remove the 3 Phillips head screws that hold protective cover in place.
4. Disconnect wiring to the pressure sensor.
5. The pressure sensor is held in place by 3 tabs.
With a flat blade screwdriver, press the tabs back and lift the water level switch up and out.
6. Disconnect the clear hose from the pressure sensor.

Membrane Keypad Test:
To activate, unplug power cord and reconnect.
Press and hold TEMPS and STOP keypads simultaneously at least 2-3 seconds within 10 seconds of power up.
Press each keypad (CYCLES, TEMPS, SPEED, OPTIONS etc.) separately to verify each keypad functions and all the LEDs for the selection light up
Press START to verify Display readouts are functional
If the touchpad fails this test, you can buy a new touchpad here with a one year warranty.

<<<THE WASHER continously spins 57 min on display actual time to finish cycle 1hr 20 min. Takes longer then it should to finish what should I look for as the cause>>>
The CYCLE RUN TIME displays "57" minutes but the actual duration of the cycle is 1 hour 20 minutes?
Caused by incorrect type of detergent (non-HE) or too much of the correct detergent (HE type).
The correct amount of HE detergent to be used (disregard the detergent instructions *entirely*).
HE : (2) Tablespoons Per Wash
HE 2X: (1) Tablespoon
HE 3X: (1) Teaspoon
Tell your customer that LG /Samsung / Electrolux are paddling a canoe up-river trying to get the message out that the detergent instructions are erroneous---by a mile.
Using too much "HE" detergent (or any amount of non-HE) will cause the software/computer to enter SUDS KILL/REMOVAL MODE.
Most customers will only know of this when they see the TIME REMAINING at say---34 minutes.
Then they leave the laundry room to get the mail / briefly chat with the neighbor / pour a cup of coffee and re-enter the laundry room---and see that the TIME REMAINING still shows 34 minutes remaining.
This occurs when the SUDS KILL MODE has been activated due to suds detected in the wash cycle during the RINSE portion of the cycle.
Eventually the SUDS KILL MODE defaults and the TIME REMAINING display resumes counting down again.
Add TIDE WASHING MACHINE CLEANER to the washer (no laundry) and run a TUB CLEAN CYCLE. This will remove SOAP SCUM/CURD from the tub. This should be done at least every 4 months to also keep MUSTY ODOR from occurring as well.
Similar to adopting a new religion---use the CORRECT amount of HE detergent---religiously.
<<<also threw a code UE which means out of balence>>>
The SERIAL NUMBER would help with this.
Older WM2277 washers used a BALL SENSOR. This sensor was prone to triggering an IMBALANCED LOAD ERROR (UE) with a hair-trigger sensitivity. Especially on WOOD FLOORING.
If this washer is one the newer WM2277 models---add a single towel to the tub. Close door. Press POWER button. Press SPIN SPEED button to select fastest spin speed setting. Press START button.
Wait until 9 minutes remaining is displayed (tub begins higher RPM spin speed).
Place fingers at the edge of both front leveling legs/feet and feel which of the legs/feet is beginning to lift off the floor (up & down motion).
Use the WRENCHETTE provided with all LG washers to adjust the appropriate leg until up/down motion/noise is minimized/stopped.
Lock the leveling legs to prevent them from becoming misadjusted later.
