Hello Jerry;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

If you do not have lights on your display, then I am afraid it is your main control board. You have a old unit and the control board is no longer available through Sears. You can purchase it through Amazon for $94.00. Part Number 6871EC2025E. If you elect to replace the board you will receive it in a silver anti-static bag. Before touching the board; GROUND YOURSELF BY TOUCHING BARE METAL WITH YOUR HANDS. STATIC ELECTRICITY WILL KNOCK OUT THE BOARD. You may want to purchase the board, go into the Sears Home Services website, print out a 10% Off Service coupon, and call sears to schedule a service call.

Rule of Thumb: "If the repair cost is 1/3 or more than the original purchase price, then buy new".

If your display lights are on, then:

1.) Bad Door Latch - Your unit will not run if the control does not get a signal that the door is closed.

2.) Bad Drum Rotation Sensor - This will shut your unit down.

Start/pause button doesn't work

I had this problem with another model LG washer dryer and the problem was just the tiny switch (6mm x 6mm) on the circuit board had worn out. They cost about 30 pence on eBay and are very easy to remove and re-solder onto the circuit board as there are only 2 pins. This saved a huge amount of money for a new control board.

Machine won't start, lights are all on and ready to wash


If your washer doesn't seem to work at all, check these:

No power
Lid switch
No power Check to see whether power is getting to the washing machine. Is it plugged in? Has a fuse blown or is a circuit breaker tripped?

Lid switch If the lid switch is defective, your washer can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washer to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

Some machines have a special lid-switch fuse near the lid switch, inside the control panel. If this fuse blows, the unit won't fill with water until you replace the fuse.

Power comes on but machine will not lock and start the wash cycle

Sounds like you need a new door latch. The part on the machine. There is a bad switch inside the assembly. A fairly common fault on the front loaders unfortunately.
