Hey guys!! Did extensive research online and here on this forum and could not find yhe information i need!!
Here is my situation... Motor will not turn the tub at all and gives me the LE error code
My machine is an LG WM1832CW
OhmMeter readings from the main board connector to eliminate harness open condition testing the hall effect sensor:
Pin 1 to pin 2 = 8.8 kohm
Pin 1 to pin 3 = 9.7 kohm
Voltmeter test of hall effect sensor plugged into main board:
Pin 1 to pin 4 = 12 vdc
Pin 2 to pin 4 = pulsating from 0.385 to 10.5 vdc
Pin 3 to pin 4 = pulsating from 0.385 to 10.5 vdc
So i am to assume the hall effect sensor is good!!
Motor still will not spin though so ive done a stator test. The following is a ohmmeter test of the stator coils from the main board connector to eliminate harness open:
Yl to Bl = 7.7 ohm
Yl to Rd = 7.7 ohm
Rd to Bl = 7.7 ohm
So i did a live voltage test for the motor output voltage from the board but this is where i get confused...
AC voltmeter test of each phase to ground gives me 0 VAC
DC voltmeter test of each phase to ground gives me 160 VDC
I guess my question is... Should i be meterig ti ground like that or phase to phase to get accurate motor readings. Is this motor work on variablr DC or AC?? And if it does work on DC voltage are these readings right?? If they are right then why isint the motor/drum turning? Any help would be greatly appreciated!! Im sorry if this has being answered already but i looked and looked and could not find anything on the output voltage values...
Thanks alot guys!! Matt
