SOURCE: LG front load machine with LE code and no spin

LE is a locked motor error. Not to worry as 95% of the time this is just a bad hall sensor (motor position sensor). It is very easy for a technician to replace and the cost is very small.

Hope this helps, please rate my solution.

SOURCE: where is the drain filter and the spin rinse sensor located on

Have not heard of a part called a "spin rinse sensor". Drain filter is located behind the small access door at the bottom left on front of the machine. Use small hose there to drain remaining water out of pump and hoses, then unscrew the big thing on the right side (end of the filter).

Why are clothes/towels still quite wet after going through complete cycle?


Charlotte,
Without knowing the brand, we can only give you an idea of what might be the problem, but it obviously did not get up to the proper speed when spinning the water out since you have very wet close. If you can reply back with the brand and model of your washer, we can help you better.

My LG WM2101HW front loader will not spin. It drains OK, but won't spin.


I would be leaning more in the direction of the door lock mechanism rather than the hall sensor as someone else posted. The hall sensor gives a very specific error code when it goes bad. Put the unit into a spin only cycle and verify that the door is locking. To do this power up the machine and only press spin speed and the start. It is also possible that it is a problem with any one of the three control boards that are on the unit but again, these normally present with very specific error codes. If the door is not locking, or even if it is but the switch isn't sending the signal back to the main control saying that it is locked then all it would do is drain and then spin 1/3 turns either way inside the tub until time runs out.

I have an LG front loader - model WD - 804 90TP and the machine is working but it gets down to 6 mins to run the spin cycle and then goes up to 14 mins and then back down again and carries on in that cycle...


You need to check the inlet valve for good flow of the water as a SLOW water pressure can increase the timing for rinse and spin.
Similarily the DRAIN pump/valve must be checked as if this is clogged then the drain flow will be LOW and the timing will extend for full drain. Remove and clean the drain pump and it can be the reason that the clothes are still wet.
Finally check on the controller for the proper timing of the cycle.

The spin cycle will not spin properly, the clothes at the bottom are still dripping wet and I do not overfill the washer, and its on all cycles


Your drain pump is not draining properly. Remove from washer and inspect the pump section. Check for blockages or obstruction in the pipes.

Clothes come out of washer dripping wet.


Hi

Try this out:

Drain:
  • Make sure the drain line is clear
  • Check the drain hose for a partial blockage
  • Inspect the water pump
Spin:
  • Test the lid switch
  • Test the timer control
  • Test the centrifugal switch
  • Test the water level switch
  • Inspect the motor coupler
  • Inspect the drive belt (belt drive only)
  • Inspect under the washer for soot (clutch)
  • Test the motor
  • Inspect the pulley
  • Test the transmission
please rate my suggestion...

Clothes wet at program finish


The clothes are wet after spinning When the clothes are wet at the end of a cycle, check these:

Motor coupler
Spin cycle
Siphoning
Water-inlet valve
Motor coupler To test the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let the machine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether the tub is spinning:

  • If it's spinning when you lift the lid, the coupler is fine.


  • If it isn't spinning--and your machine was produced by Whirlpool®--you may have a broken coupler. Many Whirlpool-made washers use a small, relatively inexpensive device called a motor coupling. This plastic-and-rubber component is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. When that happens, you need to replace it completely.


Spin cycle If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt (Maytag®), a worn clutch (GE®/Hotpoint®), or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component.

Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician.

Siphoning If the water that pumps from the machine goes right back into the machine after the spin cycle, it may be because your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub with a slow drain, back into the washer. Try to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is there something stuck in the drain?) Also, be sure the drain hose doesn't reach more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub. If it does, cut off the excess.

Water-inlet valve Water-inlet valves eventually fail. One problem that may develop with a water-inlet valve is that it can no longer completely shut off when the electricity is turned off to it. Then, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub--you may notice that your washer has water in it when you haven't used it for a few days. To fix this, replace the valve.

Cloths are wet and suds left in tub


You are using too much soap probably run the machine with no clothes and no soap check and see how much soap you still have in the water if it is alot do it again and again if you have to.
