At the ASTI conference, I attended training on LG washers and refrigerators. The instructor was a dude named John out of Alabama. He was, hands-down, the best instructor there; kinda reminded me of one of my electronics instructors in the Navy: smart, funny, and knew his stuff cold.

Anyway, these LG machines ain't that bad once you get to know 'em. They have their quirks and, yes, they have their weak points like all machines. But John emphasized two things that you gotta do as a service tech on these machines: you gotta use the diagnostic mode and you absotootly have to be able to read a wiring diagram. You can test every component on that washer from the main control board.

Cool thing about these machines is they have no belt: it's a magnetic drive directly mounted on the drum like on the Fisher Paykel washers.
