  4. Thanks Samurai for that most gracious quick response. I am heading over here late morning and now I wont have my thumb up my butt diagnosing it. Your quick response is much appreciated. Thanks so much Darren412 (GARP)
  5. Thanks very much for the reply. I will begin my investigation by checking the lid switch. If that's not the source of the problem, what would be the next step in diagnosis? I should add that the water supply impulse is still good, since my son could switch it from small load to large load and it would begin to add water. It just wouldn't run after that.

  12. Could be anything that came out of your pockets or from machine and is now in between tub and wash basket, could even be in one of the baffles, if it gets wedged somewhere in there it could cut through or stop basket from moving.
  13. Check the lid switch. Part number: AP5983746

  18. I actually just replaced one of these for a customer and didn't realize there was a service bulletin out on it. The front right radiant burner element was coming on on its own and the only way to shut it down was to unplug it or shut the breaker off at the panel. OH WELL Maybe the next call on this one I will make it a point to let them know theres a free labor and parts repair for their model if its in the model category. On second thought, Naaaah.
  19. Looking for a service manual for this lg front loader so I can perform some diagnostic testing any help would be appreciated
  20. Ok cool. So for now I'll just replace the board and see what happens, I guess. This is the electronic control board, not the display board, correct? Thanks a lot for your help, John. I really appreciate the expertise
  21. Hi all, My son bought a used Whirlpool washing machine several weeks ago, which ran fine till yesterday, when it died. After being loaded with towels and turned on, it filled with water, then refused to do anything more. The towels were removed (in case it had been overloaded) but still nothing. Any clues how to begin diagnosis? Many thanks!
  22. I'm having trouble with my Icemaker it seem to fuction fine with the exception of it doesn't drop ice from the door. It make plenty of ice, the motor is running when you hold the glass under the door. but it doesn't drop ice. The control panel works fine selecting cubed or crushed or water the control panel works fine. I just don't known why it doesn't drop ice it sounds like it's trying to and you can hear this whining noise of the motor going round and round but no ice and the bucket if full.
  23. I have a Samsung WF340ANG/XAC front loading washing machine. The machine squeaks while operating. If I shake the drum around, I can reproduce the squeaking. Is it possible that the shock absorbers need grease at the connection points or replacing? There is also something rattling when the drum is spun around. I can hear something rattling around when spinning the drum manually. I posted a video on youtube. Washer rattling noise outside drum Is this normal? My old maytag made a "sloshing" sound which I assumed was liquid to balance the load but I have never heard a rattle before. Sounds like a loose nut inside the drum assembly but where would that come from? Samsung sent two repairmen while the machine was under warranty who said they could find nothing wrong with the machine and the squeaking was normal. The machine is now out of warranty. Any comments would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
  24. The Hall Sensor gives feedback to the Main Board...weight in tub...direction of rotation...rpm...and allow lid to unlock when tub movement stops completely. I suspect that problem will be on the power-to-motor side of the circuit (plug on the Stator). LG does not yet detail a test procedure for load testing...yet. Training instructors have recently mentioned that a scan type tool is forthcoming in less than 5 years. Can't wait.
  25. I appreciate the second opinion! Thank you! Are there any diagnostics I haven't done that could determine it? I guess the board could be faulty and still give the correct voltage to the hall sensor. I'll just order one and see. Never a good time to lose a washer with two young kids!
