  1. PLEASE Help, I was trying to find the source of a noise in my old but reliable LG machine and took out the heating element to look under the drum for anything , found nothing , replaced the element but now the machine does not work, there is power as it bleeps once when I click the switch on the wall socket and a red light on the circuit board but no lights or anything else, what have I done ???
  2. Hi I'm hoping someone here can help me with my washing machine problems. I think I've put this in the wrong area but DIY repairs was greyed out. Just doing a normal wash and the RCD gets tripped and half of the house's power goes off. There was a bang from the washing machine. After emptying it and running it, inside the drum compartment there is a blue flash and RCD is tripped. After switching the power on again, a flame is seen across the back of the drum compartment. After research I removed the heating element which was covered with calcium carbonate and proceeded to clean it with heated vinegar and water. Eventually the calcium carbonate came off but the element is black where it has been burning. So I ordered a new one. New one arrives a few days later. After installing, the machine doesn't leak or trip the RCD. It completes a wash cycle but doesn't heat the water. Not sure if the heating element or the included thermistor/stat or pcb of the machine is at fault, so can't ask for a replacement. Found one with a drum problem that someone is selling. (4 hour round trip) After removing it's heating element with the thermistor and putting it in the original machine, and getting it to start washing, it is heating the water. And it's not stopping... Eventually it stopped the program. Steam was coming out of the compartment after opening the door. Also from the drawer compartment after opening it. Smoke was also leaving the drawer compartment. Right now the original thermistor is fitted to the machine with the used 2nd hand heating element. I'll add to the thread when there are updates. Sorry about the long story. I would appreciate any help that anyone can offer. Thanks for all your help.
