Hi guys,
From what I can see You guys must be experts on Lg Washers now with all the problems they have. Mine is a 2003 model LG Wm2277HW. I sure do appreciate any help anyone could give to repair this unit. So we were doing a load of laudry, mid cycle when the unit tripped the breaker. I unplugged the unit,resrt breaker wait 30 min then plugged it back in. Washer would not turn on. Some history... Every few loads the code LE would come on and I would unplug wait 30 min. plug back in and it was fine for a few loads. What I have done so far; I saw a video from repair clinic on how to take unit apart. Outlet has 120v. Then checked to see if I had power in unit where cord meets unit. Yes there is power.(Unplugged unit). I opened PMB and looked for any burned spots, none. At this point I dont know what to do. Cant any one help?
Thanks,
Plwcdi

<<<we were doing a load of laudry, mid cycle when the unit tripped the breaker>>>

*************

House/Home Fusebox Breaker or Wall Outlet GFCI Breaker?

*************

<<<I unplugged the unit,resrt breaker wait 30 min then plugged it back in. Washer would not turn on>>>

*************

Verify that the outlet has 120 volts AC by either plugging something else in that outlet or using a TEST METER.

If the wall outlet has 120 volts---verify that the NOISE SUPPRESSION FILTER has 120 volts coming from the **pink** connector (on the NSF---not the pink plug that goes into the NSF).

If 120 volts is verified at the NSF---replace the MAIN BOARD.

**************

<<<Every few loads the code LE would come on and I would unplug wait 30 min. plug back in and it was fine for a few loads.>>>

**************

Triggered by incorrect (non-HE) type of laundry detergent or too much of the correct (HE/High Efficiency) detergent.

With LG WM2277 washers---ALWAYS---order parts by providing both the MODEL & SERIAL NUMBERS---to ensure getting the *correct* replacement parts.

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"

OK, I have 120 volts verified at the NSF-- I guess i need to replace the MAIN BOARD.
Just one more question-- I know the Model number, Were are the SERIAL NUMBERS? ---to ensure getting the *correct* replacement parts.
