The start/stop button doesn't work and the part that LG identifies is discontinued....Is there a replacement for this piece?
Answer Hello Doug. This part has been permanently discontinued by the manufacturer and we don't know of any source or replacement for the part.
Fails to go into rinse cycle.
Answer Hello j molnar. You need to check and see if the cold water valve on the unit is working. If not, then that is the issue of the unit not advancing into the rinse cycle. It has to have cold water for it to advance. If the cold water is working, then you will look for error codes on the unit and if none is found, you will order and replace the control board on the unit.
My washer stopped suddenly and tripped the breaker. I flipped the breaker back on and there are no lights. Nothing happens when I press the start button. The breaker has not flipped off.
Answer Hi. Remove the back of the control panel and visible see if it blew out a circuit on the board. It will be advantageous to find the supplied tech sheet inside the cabinet to aid you in the diagnosis. It allows you to put the unit in a diagnostic mode which brings up fault codes and tells you which circuit needs assistance. Use a volt/ohm meter part # TJMA-DM1 to assist you in your diagnostics. There are 2 boards. The Pcb Assembly,display Item Number: 6871ER2078A. Pcb Assembly,main Item Number: 6871ER1078T - Before ordering, please look at original board and contacts. LG uses two different boards and your model may use 6871ER1003C. The main board has a molded fuse on the board. Use the ohm meter on R x 1 scale to see if it is open. The diagnostic sheet will show the voltage input pins to check as well as the output voltage to the display board. Thank You.
