Well, here's what's going on. The LG tromm washing machine won't start, no lights, nothing. The breaker isn't tripped, the cord is pushed in all the way. Tried plugging the machine into various other outlets too and that doesn't help. Tried empyting the water line without a fix. Whenever I off/on the breaker or replug the device back in, the washer will start up and stay that way for 5-10 minutes before shutting off again or it will even stay alive x approx one hour to do a full load successfully! Then it will turn right back off again and won't respond at all to pushing the on button or anything else unless I unplug/replug it or fiddle with the breaker again. I've read previous posts and I'm not familiar with terms like master board/switch and other things so I apologize in advance for my layman reading comprehension...and thanks in advance for all your help to everyone out there chiming in!

You'll need a new MAIN BOARD.

Use your MODEL NUMBER to find/order the Main Board at...

www.repairclinic.com
To eliminate:

Musty odor

L-O-N-G cycle times

Dingy/yellowing whites

Suds error message

Slow spin speeds

Intermittent water leaks (from rear of washer)

And other annoying symptoms which vary brand-to brand.

Read below:

The *correct* amount of HE (High Efficiency) detergent that should be used in any front load or agitatorless top load washer with tub sizes 3.0 cu ft and larger is as follows:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Wash Load

HE 2X: (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X: (1) Teaspoon

Perform a TUB CLEAN CYCLE every (4) months.

Use: "Tide Washing Machine Cleaner"

Is the main board the "circuit board" or the "control board"?
Thanks!

The LG washer WM2277 was a model that had several product revisions over its' production life (different options added at various times).

A SERIAL NUMBER helps in this case.

I'm *fairly certain* that the *correct* part number is: 6871ER1078T

RepairClinic uses THIS part number: 1268505
To eliminate:

Musty odor

John, when you look it up by model number on Repairclinic, it pulls up 1268306. And it's a less than half the price! Any idea why the difference?

The original WM2277 did not have:

1) Allergiene cycle

2) Tub Clean option

3) and at least one other feature or option---possibly two--I can't recall

As for RepairClinic's part look-up error/discrepancy...

This is *still* a potential problem at LG when ordering parts----for nine years running.

Just recently I had an LG dishwasher (LDF7811BB) that had three different MAIN BOARDS listed on the parts website.
None were the correct part numbers. After LG researched this---two more MAIN BOARDS were also identified for that same model. Five different part numbers of MAIN BOARDS for the same model dishwasher---crazy.

Fortunately this is an exception rather than the norm.

That's insane! Even parts houses with computerized databases updated daily can't keep up with that kind of chaos!

Will the first board work in his washer just without those extra cycles or will it not work at all?

LG Problems, here's the link to the control board that Master john63 says you need, in case the other board doesn't work in your washer; in which case, you can return it for a refund and get the updated board. Other options are:

- call RC and cancel the order and then order the other board or

- go ahead and order the other board, too, and just return the first one for a refund with it arrives.

Sorry for the confoosion!

<<<Will the first board work in his washer just without those extra cycles or will it not work at all?>>>

**********

My experience has been that the washer will not respond to commands (some display functions light up but no start etc)

LGs IT dept needs to quit (or start) sniffing "glue" and get their Parts website up to date.
