Author Topic: LG Tromm WM2277HW Spins at start but won't begin cycle - Intermittently  (Read 3033 times)

 My LG Tromm will spin (when I push start), but won't start the cycle (just keeps spinning)...intermittently. I have to turn off the power switch, turn it back on, reset the wash cycle and try again.  Sometime I have to do this 3-8 times to get the cycle going.  Sometimes, I have no problems at all and it starts right up into the wash cycle. Once the wash cycle starts, it washes and runs through the full cycle without any problems.  I replaced the Hall Sensor and I'm still having the same issue.

Is this the Control Board / Main PCB going bad?  Where is that located, what is the part number and how do you replace it...?

Thanks for the help.

Pull the plug and wait 5 minutes.  Plug it back in and go into test mode.  Then try a normal wash cycle.

Thanks, but there's no Test Mode that I can figure out (no button or switch) unless you have to select a sequence of buttons or something...?  I looked in the owners manual and it doesn't say anything about how to put the machine in Test Mode...

************

This symptom is consistent with...

Main Board awaiting data/signal feedback from the Hall Effect Sensor but---does not receive it (trying to determine weight of laundry for correct amount of water fill).

Replace the Wire Harness which runs/routes from the base of the washer---to the Stator and Hall Sensor.

Thanks for the tip on the wire harness.  How do I access this?  Is it a simple matter of pulling the back off the machine and going from the Hall Sensor and following it back...?
