LG Washer Powers off mid-cycle
« on: December 30, 2016, 02:07:05 PM »

Hi.  I have a LG WM1812CW that powers on normally, and begins the wash cycle; but then abruptly shuts completely down.  No error code.

I have hard reset the washer (unplug/start button.)  I have replaced the main control board.   I have put the machine into a test cycle, which it begins and then also abruptly powers off. 

Any ideas?

  I would hook up test leads to the power out on the noise filter while the machine is working and see if you lose power out when it shuts down.

Check to see if you don't have a broken Spider support bracket by lifting up on the Stainless Steel Tub and see if there is any play. There should be minimal play!  You can also inspect the Plastic Outer Tub Shell for rubbing or splintering, that will be a dead give away your spider support bracket is failing or cracked and the tub has drooped hitting the outer plastic shell and door boot. LOOK VERY CAREFULLY. Let us know what you find. That's typical on these units with anywhere from 2 to 10 years on them.
