LG Trom washer WM2016CW wont spin error code LE
« on: September 16, 2013, 10:30:47 PM »
My LG Tromm will not spin, the inside drum seems stuck, starts to move right then just wirrs, starts to move left then stops and whirs.  It fills with water and empties no problem.  I tried to manually turn the drum and it appears stuck, but will turn with a little force.  Error code LE keeps popping up.  Please help me  :'(

Replace both or is there a way to check which one is defective?

If the washer SERIAL NUMBER is 806KW (2008/June) or older---the HALL SENSOR has failed.

Replacement Hall Sensors will likely never fail again.

Wire Harness moves a lot during the cycle---replace to avoid unseen wire damage (internally).

Open door---Model & Serial Number tag is roughly at 12 0'clock position.

If removed---this *usually* indicates that the washer was *condemned* at a retail store---and was intended to either be sold *as-is* or destroyed.

S/N starts with 701KWDJ?  I feel kind of stupid, but want to try to fix myself.

Easy repair.

Unplug washer

Remove rear access panel

Remove 17mm bolt from Rotor (round wheel at the back of the tub)

Pull off Rotor (has magnetic tension)

Now you're looking at the Stator (has copper windings)

Remove the clasps that secure/hold the short Motor Wire Harness---to the tub

Remove all of the 10mm bolts from the Stator---and carefully lower the Stator

Again---carefully pry off the plastic tabs of the Hall Effect Sensor (so as not to break them off the Stator)

Install new Hall Effect Sensor and re-assemble in reverse order.

Good to go:)

I just put the machine into test mode n it doesn't spin. Is it normal that the drum does not want to turn manually?  It feels as though it is scraping on the outside casing like something may be  caught inbetween.  Is that possible or is it more than likely the problem u diagnosed earlier.  Just want to be thorough before I go buy parts
