LG WM2487H has no power

30 July 2013 - 07:36 PM

Hey guys, hoping for some guidance have the LG WM2487H steam washer worked fine for 4 or 5 years and then today just wouldn't turn on.

Checked breaker, no trip, then checked the power outlet, also still working. So then I searched online a bit and found this forum, so a similar topic, where to check the noise suppression filter, I seem to be getting 120v at the pink plug it seems to be okay. So assuming the main PCB ebr38163302 is bad?

I also read a post about spinning the drum manually and getting some life out of the display, which did not work for me.. I get nothing from that test.

We had some crazy power outages a couple days ago, but washer was doing fine the day after that, just now it decides to die. Could it be the display boards, or is the main board more common?

Or something else? Some sort of sensor?

I also have a little voltage tester that detects voltage right through the wire, and I was able to detect voltage with that right to the wiring that goes into the back of the display, so I'm doubting myself, but really just have no clue. Any help would be much appreciated!
