lg wm2277 washer not working
« on: June 10, 2013, 05:03:20 PM »

Well i am looking for some help with my washer...the last couple of days it was giving me an LE error code.  well i determined it was the drain pump.  well i had replaced that last year so i guess it didnt hold up.  well i got another pump and installed it and did a test run with the rinse and spin cycle.  before replacing it would error out with a few minutes.  well this time it didnt error out.  well i let it run the cycle and it went on for had to have been over 45 min.  seemed excessive but never paid attention before to the times.  well i noticed all was quiet so i assumed all worked loaded up a load and went to turn on and no lights at all.  dead as a door nail.  i did check the circuit breaker and it was tripped.  never tripped before.  so I flipped it and went back to washer.  did verify there was power but still dead...not turning on.

first pic is of the drain pump i removed
pic 2 is looks like the one i installed...looks a little dif but bolted right in and wired up just fine..  you can tell they look a little dif...could this have caused me a new problem?

now what?

I didnt really follow taht but, the 1st pic of the small 32w motor is a re circulation motor mounted on the right side of the drain housing. the second pic black 80w motor IS a drain motor and is always mounted on the left of the drain housing. OE/DE is a no drain error. The re circulation motor has NO ability to create ANY error code. LE is a drive.wash motor error by the way.... take a look at those components.. O0

i can do that but i have a dead front panel.  i know the drain motor mounts on the right side pointing towards the out wall away from center of washer.  so the pump i installed according to you is a 80w so does this mean i popped a fuse or burned out a board?
