Update to my last post.
I thought it was the mains filter causing the problem - turns out it was poor connection between the mains cable coming in and the filter. It took a LOT of checking of the mains cable, the wiring to the filter and the wiring from filter to the main board to narrow it down. There was sufficient connection between the spade clips that connect the mains cable to the mains filter to allow the machine to beep on power up BUT not enough to actually turn on. Talk about frustrating to find. I reclamped the spade clips and all is well now. If the problem returns I'll replace the clips with something a damn sight more secure.

JW,

I have this same problem with a WM2455HW. Would you be able to post the Service Manual for it?

Thanks,
KR

hi there..i have an lg wm2240cm with the power on issue.  mine doesn't blow the circuit or anything like that.  I can unplug it, then plug it in again.  it will make a little popping sound though when I plug it in.  it will then power on.  however, if I don't use it right away, like 5 minutes or so, it is dead again.  I took off the top cover and removed the power cord from the connection, and there is power getting to that point.  then I removed the other cord and power was getting to the other side.  the little red light will light up when the machine is getting power.  where do I go from here?  :(   any help is wonderful.
