No power to lg steamwasher wm2501
« on: August 23, 2012, 03:37:03 PM »

The cycle stopped before spinning or draining. Took clothes out and drained water. Still no power, the light comes on in drum when you manually turn drum. Washer will be two years old in November. Any suggestions?

Sounds like a failed control board.

If you get power through the noise filter but the display will not light up the m.pcb is bad. In a rare instance the display pcb could be bad but that is very, very rare. I had to change a LOT of LG m.pcb's for being dead.
