Help. LG Washer Dryer Combo
« on: March 15, 2013, 06:17:19 PM »
So I have LG washer dryer combo. I have had it about 3 years. I do ALOT of laundry so it gets used for 1-2 loads daily at a min. I have replaced the drain pump twice and one of the circuit boards. Now in the wash cycle it doesn't spin. It makes this whiny noise like it wants to spin but doesn't it doesn't tilt or move either. Ironically though when it is in dry cycle it will spin just fine. Weird. I do not know what part to replace. I have not gotten any error codes but it is not washing clothes good at all due to this problem. Thank you guys for the help :)

 :thanks:

First three of serial number? Could you post a video of the issue at hand? I immediately think hall effect sensor but you may wanna check your main pcb connections since you did replace it once....

Woah should have read that twice lol. Sounds like the software in the main pcb may be sending dirty power since it works in dry not wash. Model and serial please.

<<<I do ALOT of laundry so it gets used for 1-2 loads daily at a min.>>>

******

Two loads per day would be approximately 832 loads per year.

But in a combo (which is a washer and a dryer)---that is equal to doing about 1664 loads per year.

For a washer-only model---that's the equivanent of 4 years worth of laundry every single year :)

Let's see what happens in TEST MODE...

Press and hold the SPIN SPEED and SOIL LEVEL buttons

Then press the POWER button and release all 3 buttons

Wait for the door to lock (single click sound)

Press the START/PAUSE button once

Does the tub tumble Clockwise?

Press the START/PAUSE button a 2nd time

Does the tub begin to spin?   (low speed spin)

Press a third time

High speed spin ?

Press 4th time / Cold Water Fill for PreWash

Press 5th time / Cold Water for Main Wash

Press 6th time / Hot Water

7th time / Cold Water for Steam Generator

8th / Bleach Dispenser fill

9th / Tub tumbles Counter Clockwise

10th / Heater turns on for 3 seconds

11th / Circulation Motor runs

12th / Drain Motor runs

Did all of the test functions work?
