Question about LG WM-1832C Front Load Washer

Open Question

Whirlpool Stylemaster 4214164

My washer is 15 years old and in otherswise great shape but it no longer runs properly through the cycles. Each cycle will come on, but like during the wash cycle (any of them), the machine fills up and sits for several minutes and either trys to start agitating and stops or will only agitate for a minute or so and then drain. Then re-fill to rinse but never agitates during the rinse and then drains & spins. So, soapy residue is left behind. I believe the timer is bad but want to be sure before I attempt to replace it. The reason I believe this is because if I go around the knob in an attempt to get agitation, I can get it to agitate. It just doesn't do the run through of a complete wash cycle without manual help from me.

SOURCE: Mad dog kit? Bird dog kit? Some kinda dog or somthin'?

Your model number will be located somewhere around your tub opening under the lid. The parts you are looking for are called "agitator dogs" (yes, there is such a thing). There are four of them located under the agitator cap that help grip the agitator shaft when turning. This causes the agitator to crank in one direction during the wash cycle. The part number for the entire repair kit is 2744 and costs $16.80. This includes all the washers and bushings as well as the dogs. If you just want to purchase the dogs, the part number is 3109 and costs $5.20. For a little more, the entire kit would be a better recommendation. You can get everything you need at repairclinic.com. If you cannot locate your model number, type in the brand name of your washer (i.e., Whirlpool Stylemaster Washer) in the "Search" window and you will find what you need. These parts are the same identical parts that your major appliance service companies use, but cost much less (I should know, I used to work for one of them). Let me know if you decide to repair on your own and I can give you follow-up advice on how to take the agitator apart and replace the parts you need.

SOURCE: When to know if the motor is going out ?

This fix below completely fixed my LG front loader issue of the drum "freezing" and "studdering" on fill and a lot of times giving a LE (motor overload) error. Bought position sensor as described and doing a load right now!

Wolfster you are awesome...you saved me probably $200.

Definitely sounds like the position sensor is faulty. I had this happen to my WM2277HB recently. Motor would start to turn, then jerk, hum, and not move, eventually gives LE code. Powering down, all the other tips had no effect. Very unlikely that the motor itself is bad if it still turns freely. You could confirm the stator wiring is OK by unplugging it and taking resistance readings across the stator terminals of the 3-pin connector (any combo of two should be 7-15 ohms). I was able to order the part from an online electronics supplier (www.mcminone.com, P/N 6501KW2002A, description is "sensor assembly") and several other places may have it as well. You can download a basic but somewhat helpful service manual here http://136.166.4.200/contents/Laundry/WM2277.htm that has some disassembly instructions and exploded view diagrams, explains the troubleshooting mode. Don't even bother calling LG or a service tech unless it's under warranty. If you're here you probably have some basic repair skills and tools4.gif and can easily replace it yourself for about $20. My washer was about a year and a half old when the sensor went out, now it runs great again.

SOURCE: Maytag Atlantis black oil like residue and can't remove agitator

Hello
Welcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,

this is a very common happening and it means
This usually means that a seal is degrading or dissolving.
This washer is a top loader, Right!
I believe it calls for HE ( High Efficient) laundry detergent.
If we use to much of either it will cause this !

This usually happens due to using to much detergent or bleach.
You said, Black oil like residue discharged from washer during use. Stain clothes, almost impossible to remove. Loosened nut on agitator but it will not budge, and am afraid of damage if I try to pry between agitator and bottom of drum.




Please remember to leave a rating before you go!
Thank you

SOURCE: kenmore 90 plus series: heavy duty super capacity won't agitate

this is the site to find out how to fix your washer.
you have a broken drive coupling.
it probably wont agitate or spin, but will fill and drain.
you need to remove 2 screws from the control panel, hinge it back and then remove the 2 brass colored clips that hold the cabinet to the base. once you do then pull the entire cabinet forwards to a 45 degree angle and pull it off the base.
then pull the 2 clips off pump and then 2 more on the motor. that will allow you to get to the drive coupling. you will find it to be broken.
replace it with part number 285753a for about 15-20 bucks.

I have a 15 yr old Whirlpool washer that has run great. During a cycle, it stopped full of water. I moved the dial around to different areas pushing it in and out and got a cyle to run long enough to pump...


Not always a Timer issue. could be stopping at the cold fill part of the cycle which is the 8 o clock position on the dial. This would be fault with the cold fill vavle.

Water Softner Dispense wont empty - Kenmore Elite Quiet Pak 4 HE3t


I'm sure you heard a small motor running from time to time during a cycle. That moves an "arm" which sends water to the different chambers during a cycle. Fabric softener is dispensed when water goes to that chamber and dilutes the fabric softener. That chamber then empties by a siphoning action.
If you want to narrow down the problem a little to help trouble shoot -- put some wet rags in and run the Rinse and Spin cycle with some fabric softener. If the softener is not dispensed, then you know that the water isn't being sent to that chamber properly.
If you are intrepid enough to take the top off your washer, do that and see if the arm appears to be moving during a normal cycle. Maybe the arm got dislodged or broken during the move.
If water isn't being diverted properly, I think this calls for a real repair person.

Spin cycle not working


Maybe the spring device that keeps the belt tight is not working properly. You need to make sure what ever it is that keeps that belt tight is working properly or not damaged. The belt is very important for the spin to work good. Match it up with your old belt. The old belt will be slightly longer because of being stretched over a period of time. Get your unit number and model number (or take the belt) and go to your nearest dealer and get the correct belt.
