LG washing machine WT-R801 Stops After Wash Works Manually
« on: February 17, 2013, 10:50:59 PM »
I am having this problem with my 10 years old LG Top Loading washing machine.

In a normal wash cycle. It washes them it turns itself off. Then I could start the rinse cycle manually, it will do the rinse process and then turn itself off again before the spinning cycle. Then I could start the spinning cycle again.

I am not sure whether it is worthwhile to repair the machine or get a new one. Any help in finding the cause of the problem is greatly appreciated.

I can't find anything for that model.  It's coming up as an invalid number at LG's tech site.

Not a model that was sold here in the states so we do not have any experience or technical data. Sorry. :D

That's correct, we (U.S. Techs) don't have info on that model. But maybe a tech from outside the U.S. can help, never know.

Thank you everyone. I thought it might be a common problem with LG range. I am guessing that actual programming is corrupted. Does this mean replacing the PCB?

I was thinking the same unless I can get it fixed for $100 or less. I don't know if it is worth to spend $250-300 on it.

It has stopped working altogether now, I can not even turn it on now. Does this give clue as to what might the problem might be?

Well in the end I replaced the PCB. The problem of stopping at various stages is gone now.

However there is a new problem after installing the PCB.  Some of the buttons on the panel are not very responsive, I have to push the buttons really hard to make it work. One or two buttons are not working like the ability to select the cycle. I have checked the installation and PCB seems to be sitting correctly with the front  panel controls.

Do I just have a faulty replacement part or there is a fault with my installation? The part does not seem to be a genuine LG part as the colours on the plugs were different otherwise identical .
