Washer Repair / Re: LG washer model WM2277HW dreaded LE code
« Last post by john63 on August 26, 2014, 12:21:23 AM »
Replace the Hall Effect Sensor (6501KW2002A) and the Motor Wire Harness (6871ER1016B)

Hall Sensors have been re-designed and will not fail again

Motor Wire Harness fails (internally) and is difficult to verify. Should be replaced regardless---due to the amount of flexing/movement of the wiring during the cycles (especially spin).

If the above parts have not resolved the "LE" error---then the next most likely cause would be the Main Board (need Serial Number to order correct Main Board).
An "LE" error that is caused by a faulty Main Board---is fairly rare.
Dishwasher Repair / Re: LG dishwasher LDF7932ST and LE error

<<< 005KWTA00401 >>>


Built May 2010


<<< We'll start it on a regular 2-hour wash cycle, and it does okay for a lot of it. But then in the middle to later part of the two hours, it stops and displays the LE error code. At this point it's full of water, and the soap dispenser is open and empty, so it's operated okay for quite a while. What I've done is turn it off and back on, then I set it on a rinse-only cycle. It seems to do this fine without any problems. >>>

<<< the problem is intermittent. >>>


Most likely causes---in the following order...

Failing Wash Motor (  )

Debris in Wash Impeller Housing---requires removing filter cover inside DW (causes noise complaints and/or "LE" error)

Nearly severed/broken wire at the bottom of the door (must remove front panel to inspect)
This dishwasher DOES NOT have the older tar-like insulation and therefore wiring within the door---is NOT a known issue for problems.
Wire(s) can still be an issue at the very bottom of the door (from opening & closing the door---pulled apart)

Other known issues with this dishwasher model (and build date)

If the Serial Number is within the range of 501KWxxx through 011KWxxx---the Guide Assy has been re-designed to prevent *very random* water leaks at the lower corners of the door.
The part number (4975ED1005B) has *not* been changed.
Replacement Guide Assy must have a build date (ink on part) of November 2010 or newer

The Chopper/Mascerator Blade within the Sump Assy (located at the center of the tub inside the DW) has been changed from part number (5832DD4001A) to (5832DD4001B)---to eliminate grinding/whirring noise that occurs during the *wash cycle*.

The Filter Assy (ADQ32598202) has been re-designed (smaller holes) to prevent hard debris from entering the lower portion of the Sump Assy---which can at a minimum cause noisy Wash Motor or Drain Motor operation.
Debris in the Wash Motor/Impeller housing *could* cause potential "LE" errors (again this would be in addition to noisy wash cycle operation).
Debris which enters the Drain Motor housing *could* cause a potential "OE" error (no drain) or noise during the drain cycle
The part number for the re-designed Filter Assy has NOT been changed.
Replacement Filter Assy must have a build date after Oct 22 2012

To fairbanks56, I'm absolutely positive it displays 52. I will use rockinrobin's post to try to figure it out and will post something if/when I figure it out. Thanks to letting me know it's 15 years old. My how time flies!

Dishwasher Repair / Kenmore ultra blinking LEDs
« Last post by locke3 on August 25, 2014, 08:54:33 PM »
Hello all,

I have a 3 year old kenmore dishwasher model#665.13599K600 that will stop mid cycle with the normal wash and heavy wash LEDs blinking for ~1 min then it starts for a min and stops with the same blinking LEDs. I did a google search and could not find this pattern. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Refrigerator & Freezer Repair / 501R Sub Zero door alignment issues
« Last post by Bud71 on August 25, 2014, 06:41:07 PM »
Thanks to any and all credible input.   I have a 501R whose door keeps falling out of alignment.  I have become pretty decent at adjusting the bottom and top screws/allen screws.    In this case, I am loosening the 4 screws on the bottom hinge, realigning with the help of a small board or crow bar and re-tightening the screws.

The door keeps slipping on the bottom hinge (hinges on right hand side of door)....coming out of alignment after about 2 days of use and I loosen and realign it again.  When it slips, the upper left hand corner of the door breaks suction.

I have tried replacing the screws/ and the 1/8" allen screws with new 1/2" screws of the same thread.    Same problem!

a)   Should I try Locktite on the screws?

b)   Could this be due to the small plastic "door closer bearing" being worn out?   It is part # 115 (later serial numbers, built in Nov. 91).

Thanks in advance for any help!   
Chit Chat / Identifying a vintage HotPoint Refrigerator
« Last post by Twoodall on August 25, 2014, 04:41:57 PM »
I just purchased a Hotpoint Refrigerator.  The label with the model is missing.  It runs, but it has a door latch issue, missing a shelf, and needs new gaskets.  Where can I go to get help identifying the model I have?
No.  I haven't taken any pictures of the repair.  It was ugly.  I only used electrical tape to see if it holds.  I thought about sealing back up with Silicone caulk, but wanted to see how it goes first

I have checked the wiring and didn't find any breaks. When I checked the stator I got full continuity when I checked them.I am not sure but I don't think I should get that for a reading.
Washer Repair / Re: GE Washer only fills on casual cycle

I swapped the control panel out with one out of a model unit.  It baffles me as to why someone would change the panel to a completely different style.  Ugh.

Very appreciative of everyone's assistance here.  Thanks guys.
