This is from the LG tech assist

Hall sensor is popular, you can replace it as a single part or replace the whole stator

If the Washer won't spin be sure the basket moves freely both directions and isn't dragging (the space between front end of basket and rubber door boot should be even 360 degrees when rotating).
Download the Repair Manual below to assist with disassembly and troubleshooting (you'll need a Digital Multimeter available at most Hardware Store's for $10-20)

1) Use a Wet/Dry Shop Vac to remove Water from Basket (if you can open the door) then remaining Water from end of Drain Hose.
2) Run the Drain/Spin or Spin Only Cycle.
3) If the basket spins then I would run an empty wash load using 2 Cups of Distilled White Vinegar (pour it directly into basket) to get rid of the Suds.
NOTE: You should only use 3 Tablespoons of Regular Strength HE Liquid Detergent, 2 Tablespoons of Double (2x) Strength or 1 Tablespoon of Triple (3x) Strength

Your Washer is a Vertical Modular Unit and is made by Whirlpool
Your Washer has a Tech Sheet located inside the front part of cabinet (must lift top panel to access it)
Download the Repair Manual below that's similar to your unit.
Manual contains disassembly procedure and troubleshooting guide
I would first check for Fault Code that's stored on machine (write them down in order, the 1st code listed is the most recent)
Reply with Fault/Error Code(s) for further assistance

I have an LG Tromm front loader washing machine, model WM2496HWM. A few years ago it started intermittently giving me the "LE" error code. Unplugging it and resetting it worked for a few years, until it became an issue nearly every load. I replaced the hall sensor and it worked great for a few months. Then I replaced the wire harness - the code came back upon the first wash. So then I replaced the main control board and it worked flawlessly again for a few months.
When the code returned again, I replaced the stator assembly. And, it worked flawlessly for a few weeks and now the code is back AGAIN!
I emailed LG and they said to unplug it (or flip the circuit breaker) and hold down the "start/pause" button for 5 seconds to reset it. It doesn't work, and now every time I try to run even the smallest load, the "LE" error code returns. Sometimes it is within a few minutes, other times it is nearly at the end of the cycle. In the past, it has always seemed that larger loads, or loads washed on hot water would trip the code nearly every time.
Usually I can run a drain/spin cycle after the code trips, but recently the code returns when I try that and it won't even let me do that - even if I have just pulled the power for a while.
I read it could possibly (in rare instances) be the door lock assembly?
Any ideas??? I am unsure what it could possibly be at this point and I am baffled as to why certain replacements fixed the issue temporarily. Could it be that the washing machine isn't leveled correctly?
I have also tried spinning it 4x clockwise and counterclockwise, etc.
This thing is a money pit at this point and am wondering if there is something else to try or if it is just a lost cause. Besides it not working, the machine is in great shape!
Kenmore SXS Mod 106.56536400,
No power to ice maker, with IM unplugged
there is 100-102 volts at connector, plug in IM
there is 0 volts, sideways ice maker in front of freezer,
wires go right into cabinet wall between refrig & freezer
no tech sheet and I can't seem to trace the wires any further.
Bad connection somewhere, but where to look?

Update - when we got up this morning, we saw that the dishwasher threw an LE error last night during a Quick Wash cycle. Like before, I turned it off and on, set it on a rinse-only cycle and now it seems to be going through that without any problem.
I'd like to watch it (more closely) for a few more nights to see if there is a pattern to exactly when in the cycle the error is occurring. If the time is random, then gradual motor failure would seem like a strong possibility. But if it keeps erroring out at the same time, it would make me wonder -- what's the machine doing at that particular time?
