Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not happy I had this washer for just 14 months when the control board went on it, I phoned LG they told me it is past 12 months so LG can't help. I phoned the local repair man recommended by LG and he searched for the part and the part was discontinued, so now I have a washer that can NOT be fixed, and I received no support from the manufacture. Not happy!

Why do I have to unplug washer after running a load every few weeks to get it to turn on again? Extended warranty through HHGregg is a joke, Intermittent problems not covered.

Asked by: Larry Dickman
Hi Larry. We regret to read about the issues that you are experiencing with your ENERGY STAR® Qualified 5.0 cu.ft. MEGA Capacity TurboWash™ Washer with Steam, Model # WT5680HVA and apologize for any inconveniences. There are several causes for the machine having to be reset every so often by unplugging the machine then plugging it back on to get it to turn on. Unplugging the machine and then plugging it back on resets the control board and the causes could be the control board itself, a loose pin connector within the machine or a faulty door switch. Unfortunately, the machine will need to be inspected to determine the cause. If you would like to schedule a repair service, you can either contact the Call Representatives at our Support Center, (800) 243-0000 for assistance or visit our site at https://www.lg.com/us/support/repair-service/find-repair-provider to find an LG Authorized Service Center in your area...^IFV

I have a LE code which is a motor error but the tub seems to be locked up causing the motor to er. The washer is making clunking noises just before this happens. Is something broke? 

Asked by: Brier7
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this washing machine. It is difficult to determine exactly what the cause of this problem might be. The unit will need to be inspected by a qualified service technician. To make service arrangements, you may either contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000, or you can check our Repair Provider Lookup on our website, at http://www.lg.com/us/support/repair/support-repair-provider-lookup.jsp.

Why does the steam cycle take over 3 hours? And why don't the cloths get pulled to the bottom to get washed. Some stay on the top and never get pulled under?

WHAT IS WATER PLUS OPTION ON MD. # WT 5680HVA?

Asked by: JUST ME TWO
Use this option if you wish to add more water to your wash load. This option is especially useful for large or bulky loads. If the washing machine reaches its maximum water level, the WATER PLUS button will have no effect. You cannot select the WATER PLUS option in the Tub Clean and Bulky/Bedding cycles.
