when it does run for you, do you hear a loud growl from the machine when it goes into spin?

Sheesh. so looking at the manual again, it looks like the receiver is the board behind the flapper, not the other one.  I used to look up the parts and it showed the board on the left being the receiver.

If I am reading the manual right, the board on the right, behind the flapper, is the receiver and the board on the left, with the on off switch, is the emiiter.

If thats the case, then I did not change the receiver, I changed the emitter.

I did change part number w10518658

I am now ordering part number w10518659

any advice is still welcome.
Washer Repair / LG wm2650 LE error
« Last post by seedy on August 28, 2014, 06:43:09 PM »
Hi everyone

We have a wm2650 washer  that was purchased new less than 10 months ago.

About 4 weeks ago, we started getting the LE error despite load less than 3/4 full (or 22lbs).  It is intermittent and occurs usually during the rinse cycle.

We have been using HE detergent since day 1, but was adding too much to it (to the 'normal' line in the blue filler rather than just 2 table spoons).  We have since corrected this.

We bought some Tide washing machine cleaner and used 1 pack to run under the tub cycle.  This did not fix the LE error.

Subsequently, we called the LG tech in and he said everything (mechanically/electronically) seems fine, but he decided to replace the wire harness and hall sensor anyway 'just in case'.

The washer worked great for 2 loads (Cold wash), but on the 3rd (hot wash), the LE error flashed again.

It goes away by just turning the washer on/off

Anyone experience something like this before?

i know the LE error is common with older washers, but our model is relatively new...
Refrigerator & Freezer Repair / small in door Whirlpool icemaker problem
« Last post by schleven on August 28, 2014, 06:36:35 PM »
Customer has a GSF26C5EXW02 Whirlpool fridge.  It has the small 6 cube icemaker in the door.  Its not making ice.

The receiver light is not on when the flapper is held down.  The manual says to replace receiver (w10518658), so I did.

The light came on when the flapper was held, but still would not power icemaker.

After about 5 minutes, the light would no longer light up.

So I am assuming there is a problem with the emitter board.

I can't imagine the icemaker is making the light stay on for a short time and then go out.

Note, I put the original board back in and it acting the same.  the light lit up when the flapper was held at first, but after 5 minutes, it would not come on at all.

Any help is appreciated.

I too have the same problems. Sometimes I can do the rinse cycle fine but seems every time I throw clothes in (even if just for rinse cycle) I get 0E. I drain out the water using the shopvac via main drain hose or use the vac on the little drain hose on the front and then it continues. The successful rinse cycles drains the water fast. Ours too makes that low hum noise the times it wants to drain but does not (around the 13-15 minute mark). Last week I was able to do 3 loads of wash but now it is giving 0E pretty consistent when clothes are in it.

The serial number is:  702KWPV00928

ALL parts were replaced this year, in 2014.  The first part replaced was the HALL SENSOR in January.  It was about March that the WIRE HARNESS was replaced, and since then then MAIN BOARD, then a few weeks ago the STATOR ASSEMBLY (it had a new hall sensor on it).

I only use a couple tablespoons of detergent - max!!  I use the KIRKLAND BRAND from Costco.  I DO use A LOT of Downey (fabric softener), could that be the culprit?  I fill the fabric softener dispenser to the top.  HOWEVER - some loads I do not use Downey and the error still trips.

**Now, even after the circuit breaker being flipped off for 24 hours, I turn it on to try to do a spin/drain cycle and it immediately flashes the "LE" error code.  It won't even start a cycle and it has never done that.**

THE WASHER IS ON A PEDESTAL...Would that matter if it wasn't leveled correctly?

I am ready to chuck it!  Aaargh!!

I am SO GRATEFUL for the help here!
Chit Chat / Whirlpool direct drive

Whirlpool direct drive washer, poor spin, replaced clutch assy, worked ok couple of times, now it seems as if the spin basket is rubbing the inside of the tub. Don't know what would affect the clearance there. Drive coupling is good, don't see anything else out of place.
