lg washer 2240cm won't power on
« on: February 16, 2014, 10:31:14 AM »

hi there..i have an lg wm2240cm with the power on issue.  mine doesn't blow the circuit or anything like that.  I can unplug it, then plug it in again.  it will make a little popping sound though when I plug it in.  it will then power on.  however, if I don't use it right away, like 5 minutes or so, it is dead again.  I took off the top cover and removed the power cord from the noise filter, and there is power getting to that point.  then I removed the other cord and power was getting to the other side.  the little red light will light up when the machine is getting power.  where do I go from here?  :(   any help is wonderful.

Sounds like you need a new board. There are two boards the front PCB display and the rear main board.  Its probably the main board in the back.  Try unplugging it for 15 minutes and plugging it back in. That will reset the system if that was the issue.  If not probably the board.
