20 Most Recent LG WM-2277HW Front Load Washer Questions & Answers

I tried a solution I found elsewhere - worked great. I had turned my drum enough to cause the display to turn on (a glitch in their program, I think), then I got the LE code on the next cycle.

Unplug for 10 minutes. Turn back on and press the Rinse & Spin button, then set Spin Speed to No Spin. Run this cycle, which should work fine. Afterwards, you should be able to run your machine as normal. If this doesn't work, replacing the Hall sensor would be the next step.

I have tried several different things for my stinky LG washing machine that I just bought September 2007, including "remedies" from the customer service at LG - nothing worked for me. FINALLY, I HAVE DISCOVERED A SOLUTION AND AM SOOOO THANKFUL! I removed the liquid detergent tray and sprinkled baking soda (probably 2-3 tablespoons) where powdered detergent goes, and ran a cycle with hot water, no clothes, no detergent. This got rid of the smell, but the very next time I did a load of clothes with detergent, the stinky smell came back. So I tried adding baking soda in the same manner with every load of laundry I did (underneath the liquid detergent tray) and it has worked!!! With every load of laundry, I remove the liquid detergent tray and sprinkle approximately a tablespoon of baking soda and then replace the tray and fill it as normal with my liquid detergent (whatever is on sale, the brand of detergent has not made a difference for me). This is ALL I do. No leaving the door open, cleaning the rubber seal, wiping anything out. I believe the smell is a result of stuff we can't see or even get to and that's why the baking soda works.
I hope this helps someone else.

cheaper to check for a problem in the impeller first as the pump motor seldom fail but there are problems with items jamming the impeller

Replace the bad thermistor. Costs about $6. Not that hard to do. Check out repair videos at repairclinic.com. Or appliancepartspros.com

Did you check to see if the hot and cold are hooked up backwards? Try switching them.

The hose from the soap drawer to the tub may be split. These hose have flexible ridges and its common for them to split inside one of the ridges.

Take tray back out. Take all the components apart and clean all the tubes. Capillary action will not work with residue left on the parts.

it is a drain hose so there is no need for a filter
the water to drain will be dirty so there is no point in filtering dirty water destined too go down the drain

Probably only thru a dealer or repair service.

It is a door lock error caused by bad door lock switch or if your door is very hard to swing closed because the hinge is corroded, then the hinge could be causing the door lock to error.

Short answer: The post+images by “chem-prof” on Jan 10, 2008 and the post with part instruction by “wolfster” on Dec 04, 2007 solved the problem!!! You guys are the best!!!

Long answer: We purchased the LG WM2277HW three and a half years ago. We have been VERY happy with the results. Last Thursday we got the LE error code after placing a single sofa cover in for a quick cycle. I’m not sure if this is what caused the part to go bad or it’s just the fact that this part might have a “time limit” so LG can make more money on service… (sounds like my Volvo!!!). Anyways, after freaking out for five very long minutes, I Googled the phrase “LG Tromm WM2277HW will not spin” and got directly to this page (WAHOO, FixYa.com!!! You guys are great too!!!). Read the instructions posted by “chem-prof” and “wolfster”. Following “wolfster” I went to download the user manual and exploded diagram from, then I went to http://www.mcminone.com/ and typed “P/N 6501KW2002A” in the search. Got the “sensor assembly” part for $17.50 + $22.50 (2nd day air UPS). Make sure to note “Please send me a UPS tracking info” in the comments field. Got the UPS tracing e-mail from mcminone.com and waited…. Tuesday was my delivery day (Ohio to Florida). On 5pm got the part by UPS. At 5:15pm it was all assembled and first cycle was started to run!!! Now it’s my 3rd cycle and the baby LG WM2277HW is spinning like usual!!!
OK, now let me tell you, the images by chem-prof are great, but I found that if you take the three screws that attach the electric cords to the drambase it will actually make your life easier and it you will not need to disconnect one of the cords/plug, only the small one that attaches to the “sensor assembly”. See my image for the process:
A. Take off the 4 screws for the metal covering
B. Take center large screw (#2 on my list, it was a mistake…), this will not be as easy unless you have someone else to hold the dram from the front… but it’s doable after all, I did it!
C. Take off the magnets covering, this may require some shifting left and right, while pulling to the back (placing it back is not that easy, indeed watch your fingers when placing it back!)
D. Disconnect the cords attachment screws (#1 on my list)
E. Take the 6 screws of the motor (looks like a circle with orange cords around it!) (#3) and place the motor on a towel on the floor
F. Take off the plastic part (“sensor assembly”) from the motor
G. Place the new plastic part (“sensor assembly”) on the motor
-- Redo steps E to A backwards… voualla! You’re done!
H. Take your wife and the kids to a fancy restaurant for all the $$$ you saved!

Your model has a button labeled beeper. Put that on high.

Not motor. Most likely one of these: bad bearing or seal, worn shock absorbers, broken spider(drum support to spindle)
