I own an LG WM2455H which I purchased new at least 10 years

Customer Question

I own an LG WM2455H which I purchased new at least 10 years ago. More or less a month ago the washer started making loud rapping noises during the spin cycle. Then last week it died and won't start. I called customer service and was advised to reset the machine. After resetting the machine (took it off the plug), then held the start button for 5 seconds and then plugging the machine again, it worked and was able to do 2 wash cycles. Then my younger sister started another wash cycle and it stopped with error code EE. (the manuel says that there is Control error; to unplug the machine and call the technician. Then water spilled on the floor. I cleaned the drain and the floor and plugged the machine on hoping that it will work but it did not. Do you think that this washing machine is repairable or should I buy a new one.

The washer is definitely repairable, but the control board you will need to order and replace is about $150 so it's not a cheap fix at all. The error EE is definitely a bad main control board and eventually it will stop powering up at all but below is a link to the control board you'll need to order for your model.
