<<<Did a small test after installing the Hall effect sensor to make sure the pulsing 10vdc was getting back to the board and it is, still no motor turn at all and LE error of course. Motor output must be fried?!>>>
Possible failed MAIN BOARD---but does *not* typically trigger an "LE" if the Main Board is at fault (Motor Relay failure).
Rather than an "LE" error---it is more typical to see "0" in the display window on the control panel.
<<<They tell me they are legally obligated to manufacture replacement parts for 10 years after the model has being manufactured. Mine was manufactured 8 years ago... Discontinued part???>>>
<<<Last time I called on something like this they offered a buyout to the customer.>>>
I've come across an LG washer or 2 in which the MAIN BOARD was indeed at fault (for different reasons/symptoms)---and was No Longer Available.
LG arranged an exchange of the washer---for a new model.
NOTE: The washer *must* be examined by an Authorized LG Serice Center---to verify fault.
An exchange (when a part is NLA) can *only* be initiated by contacting/speaking with a SUPERVISOR (not a CSR).
Once the information has been given to the supervisor---the customer will then be contacted/notified within 5 to 7 business days by an "escalation dept" that handles such claims.
A process that can ultimately take 2 to 3 weeks---before a new washer is actually exchanged.
If this were my service call---the next thing to check/test would be:
1) Verify that the ROTOR magnets are undamaged (no hairline cracks)
2) Install a new WIRE HARNESS (6877ER1016B
) to rule out a cracked/intermittent connection---*inside* one of the wires.
This short-length Wire Harness runs/routes from the Motor and Hall Sensor connections---to the dual plug connections wrapped in a "baggie" at the rear of the washer (attached to the base/bottom with a zip tie).
