Robert Scott: IMPORTANT TIP!! When my LG washer wouldn't spin I called the LG Customer Support line and the woman guided me step by step through cleaning the water filter from a small door on the front after she told me how to drain the tub manually (important). Evidently thread and lint and stuff can clog the filter then it won't drain or spin. 10 minutes and voila it drains, spins and NO repairman or cost. TRY THIS FIRST!!
ADMIN GS: After reading these comments, I really don't think I'll ever consider an LG product... thanks for saving me some time guys :)
swedman255: Is there a video on balancing issues? Thanks great video by the way
Paul Wylie: FYI the bolt I am talking about is the one you see in the center of the housing in the video at 1 min 6 sec.
Paul Wylie: I did all the test and they passed. Washer was still making noise and not spinning with clothes in it. I tightened the bolt on the back of the housing that contacts the tub and now the washer works fine.
David V. Torongo: Thanks for the post!
George Erwin: In the video when you are checking for voltage you say there is no voltage but there is 103 v &130v! What's up with that?
Becky Wimmer: Tracie Brown, this video might help you
Aikidobear129: If you live in Canada it doesn't really matter how much the parts are as LG won't sell them to you anyway! LG refuses to even let American appliance part facilities to ship parts across the border. If I'd have known this I would have never decided to waste my money on their machines. I purchased a front load washer and dryer and the dryer broke down in the first 6 months the washer lasted a bit longer but now sounds like a jet airplane taking off. So if your thinking about buying from LG my advice would be save your money!
stoolie10: I hate it when someone shows a part they are replacing and doesn't give a cost for the repair. Will the control board exceed the value of the machine?
Kim Neff: Zak,I'm getting a 46 on the spin diagnostics?what could it be?
Alastair Hanson: Excellent. Thanks!
Dave Harrison: For anyone who is a DIY'er, and wants to work on these themselves, just a word of advice - Gather as much information as possible - model number, serial number, and even the part number off of any defective part. LG parts replacement information is incredibly inaccurate! Please be advised.
John Kerr: zack great video. I have a wm1812cw that I just had toe replace the drain pump. After doing so it did two loads of wash fine. Now it keeps coming up with an ue code and will not spin up before timing out. Have tried every thing with loads but same thing ue. What would you suggest?
Karen Smith: Hey Zack, got the LE code, tried turning drum each way 4x and drum did move not problem, but when plugged back in, still nothing. Put in diagnostic mode and drum did not move, got a 0. Does this mean I need a new hall sensor, or does the whole control board need to be fixed. Have no problem doing the hall sensor, but getting into changing out the control board is a different matter. Thanks! Great video btw!
Sunnyvale877: Crap, I wanted to see the washer spin after that High dollar board was replaced. This is an un trusted fix... LE is a failure code, no spin. Zack did not give us the failure code before he zeroed in on the control pcb. Nice video.
allende6: hi i try to fix my LG tromm WM2277HW and I think connect the hoses that send the soap and i cant find any video or manual for that can you help me?
Alice Ridgway: Zach this video was great - really clear! Our LG WM2075SCW shows 0 in diagnostic mode! (it also makes a whining noise when trying to spin) The best part was that by putting it in diagnostic mode (thank you for showing us how) the washer finally drained! I think testing the Ohms and AC is a little beyond our abilities particularly if it means finding, buying, and replacing the control panel but seriously - this video was a life saver!
Susan Cogan: ran a diagnostic by pushing the buttons but only shows 3 straight lines doesn't read anything also motor just hums.
