Appliance Repair Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello techdesk expert,
Apart from the identical model, which would be old LG models with compatible display pcbs?
Surely the display pcb that went into the WM 1485 FHD also went into other LG models of a similar vintage. If you could give me a list of these it would make my search that much easier.
Also do you know of a supplier of 2nd hand washing machines around London that I might try for my search?
Thanks for your response.
I'd already located the machine in Swindon, its a 1480 not 1485 but I dare say the parts are compatible.
However, there is also a 1460 FHD front display panel & pcb available but the seller is unable to answer any technical questions. Can you confirm whether this would be compatible?
As in my previous request to you, what would be helpful is a list of all LG models that would have compatible diplay pcbs thus making my search easier.
In theory I should be able to get this info from LG but their customer support leaves a lot to be desired!
Thanks for the confirmation that the LG 1480 & 1485 use the same display board.
I appreciate that LG don't seem to have a list of compatible display boards available to the public.
However, could you tap into your network of expert colleagues and let me know which of the machines in addition to the 1480 I could cannibalise for a spare display PCB?
This would help me widen my search and guarantee success!
I did not ask for a list of repairers!
Below in italics is what I asked for!
I'd appreciate an answer (if you can), to the above question. It does not have to be right away. If you need to do some research, that's no problem. I can wait till tomorrow if needs be.
It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.
I wonder whether you're OK with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.
Thanks for your patience,
I seem to have just got common sense rather than expert answers from the professional who's chosen to opt out of the question.
I'd appreciate it if the question was directed at a professional with a track record of dealing successfully with questions related to LG washing machines. That way I'd be more likely to get the specific technical advice I need.
If you think you could do this, please repost the question but with the proviso suggested above.
Let me know what your course of action is likely to be.
Thanks for replying.
We will continue to look for a Professional to assist you.
If you decide on a refund, or wish to keep the credit for a future question, then of course we'd honour it.
Thank you for your patience,
Thanks for your answer. It certainly sheds light on my question. Assuming it's the display PCB that's at fault, I can now widen my search for alternatives thanks to the info you have supplies.
I assumed it was the display PCB as the on/off switch would work only with a lot of "jiggling" and then stopped working altogether. Also, when I took it out of the machine, the printed circuit tracks leading to this switch seemed less clean. In your experience, is this usually a display pcb switch that is at fault? Can I confirm this with a circuit tester with the board out of the machine? If so. would I be looking for just circuit continuity or would I need to take resistance readings?
Any advice would be appreciated.
Thanks for the quick reply!
I'll give it a go and get back to you.
