We have a 3 year old LG washing machine not used much by two older adults
that has broken frequently. we have a friend with the same problems. The
LG repair department is not very helpful when the repair men come and they
make wrong guesses as they don't seam to understand and LG is no help. Do
we toss it? It is now down with they think a bad control card but don't
know which one
I am Korean born who has lived here ~50 years, that is 2/3 of my life.
I have a habit of avoiding anything made in Korea. I don't know why.
Appliance business my Korean is fairly new venture even younger than
automobiles. So how much experience do they have is my question. Our
laundry pair is Whirlpool which never gave us any trouble since new.
On the other hand, we have two LG televisions including a 52" plasma
we have had for 4-5 years and they are great.
We also have a set of LG washer/dryers that we have had about 5
months. They have also been great.........so far!
Whoa! Way too much detail of the symptoms! Could you be less
Pinpointing the problem part should be easy for even a semi-qualified
tech. If you paid to have the washer fixed, you deserve a refund
because you paid to have it, uh, fixed, not merely tinkered with.
Check appliance repair websites, like FitItNow.com,
ApplianceJunk.com, or RepairClinic.com, and ask in their forums.
Also check YouTube because there are a lot of repair videos there. I
don't think paying for repair makes sense when a replacement front
loader can be had for < $700, but for DIY repair, download the
appropriate factory manual from:
sci.electronics.repair might have information about fixing the control
cards, if they're the problem.
