LG wm2016cw knocking after replacing hall sensor
« on: December 23, 2016, 10:43:52 PM »
I was getting the LE error on my LG washer so I replaced the hall sensor.  That took care of the LE error.   But now I am getting a really loud knocking sound in spin cycle even on a fairly light load and low spin.  Even on the initial few spins when starting a load I can see that the tub is not spinning true.  It looks lopsided but doesn't knock, at least I don't hear it.  Could I have put something back on incorrectly that would cause this?  Any other ideas?  It was not doing this at all until I replaced the hall sensor. 

Thank you in advance for any feedback.

I should mention also that the machine is leveled and on a concrete floor.

hall sensor wouldn't cause your issue that you are having. If the tub is not turning true sounds like either the inner tub support has broken or bent or the tub bearing has failed. Either way you are in for a very major repair.

Try removing the rotor and stator once again and reinstalling. Likely you didnt get everything just right. ASSUMING the knock was not there before the hall effect sensor replacement .
