LG Washer won't power up
« on: November 07, 2016, 10:35:09 AM »
I have the issue with my washer where it won't power up unless I unplug it and plug it back in. 

After it is on, everything works fine..  Including the power button, unless it sets idle for too long, then the power button is disabled again.

I've read from repair clinic that it could either need a $200 circuit board replacement, or a $30 noise filter replacement.

Does anyone have advice on how to narrow this down? 

Model: MW2301HW

Most likely needs a new main control board. ( that's the one on the inside, back of the cabinet)

Usually the MAIN PCB.

Looks like main control board needs to be replaced

Like I said,it's most likely the Main control. If the filter board was causing the problem, the washer would be dead all the time. It wouldn't power up after unplugging and plugging it back in.
