LG WM2501HWA not spining
« on: May 05, 2013, 08:19:13 AM »
Anyone know where I can get a service manual for the LG WM2501HWA front load washer. Mine quit spinning last night and am trying to troubleshoot it.  I checked the ohms from the motor and am getting 7.8 to 8 ohms but need to know if that is with in range. Need to determine if it is motor control or some sensor. Thanks for any help

Hi,

You can download the service manual from here.

I would also check the door switch.

Maybe one of our LG experts will have some other advice for use too.

Any error codes? What is the first three NUMBERS of the serial number?

No error codes. And I should say it does spins but will not do a full spin and make a loud noise. I took the rotor assembly off and the plastic part that bolts onto the drum appears to have had the ridges that line up with the drum spindle has been smoothed out. When I turn the rotor assembly the drum does not turn with the bolt loosened. If I tighten it all way it will turn some what but when I put it in test mode the rotor assembly wobbles as if off balance.

It sounds like the rotor has failed.

Your serial number should be located on the front door frame or on the right side of the machine for much older models.

Replace the rotor. New part is updated with metallic center. Remove the old rotor and clean the spider really good. Then Tighten the bolt with all you have got and u will never have another issue. Have fun.

I was wondering why that was plastic anyway. I have part number 4413ER1003A for the rotor assembly.  Is that the one that has the metallic center? I have seen a few different part number for the rotor and want to be sure I get the right one. I have the LG front load WM2501HWA. Thanks
