LG WM2277HS Pump will not turn off
« on: February 10, 2012, 04:06:25 AM »
My WM2277HS pump went bad..I originally noticed the water was not draining and unit would not spin..The service manual said check pump and I found stator was open..Disassembled and replaced pump..NOW as soon as the washer is turned on the pump comes on and is draining water all the time..The water will not turn off and, of course, the washer will never start washing because it never reaches the water level..After 8 minutes the washer faults out with the IE code (which is normal when water level not reached). ALL I DID was change the pump..I took it back apart and checked my wires and everything looks ok..My wife says it was working fine before with the only problem being the pump not working. It would wash and water inlet worked fine- just would not rinse or spin because the pump would not get the water out..Am I looking at a bad board or what??  The service manual aint the best in the world..

This is very unusual but it does sound like the relay for the drain pump is stuck in the closed position. The only way to resolve it is to replace the control board.
