LG +3 turbodrum wf t851 bE error code

Hi, our washing machine shows bE code and stops working. I got it to work by applying some weight to the lid, but it stops between cycles. Now I've tried to restart it from the start of  a new load, but the code comes up straight away and nothing happens but the alarm. I think it may be a sensor problem or a balance issue. The motor and belt spin freely.
Cheers, Marc

    I have referred back to the manual and it states that error bE indicates a "ball sensor" fault, no repairer I have spoken to knows what a ball sensor is. So I called the LG spare parts supplier and asked for a ball sensor and they had on in stock, it is inexpensive so I ordered it. Once it is installed I'll be able to determine if that fixes the problem, I'll keep you posted.

    FIXED!


    Ok, the 'ball sensor' has arrived from the supplier. On the washing machine, it is located within the dash/control console casing. I took the two screws on either side of the back of the washing machine, lifted the casing from the back, unclipped it from the front and found the ball sensor on the left hand side of the machine. I unscrewed the ball sensor, unplugged it and replaced it with the new one. The ball sensor only cost $16 and hey presto... it's fixed! It was worth the punt considering the repairers I spoke had never even heard of a ball sensor. Thanks all.

I have the same problem. I do not think this has a micro switch to activate the wash cycle or spin. I have looked carefully.

I have a gut feeling that this works on a sensor similar to that of a sonic car alarm. It may have gone out of sync and needs to be retuned.

I have tried to find the software but it is not commercially available.

A ball sensor is commonly called a pressure switch, there is a clear or dark rubber tube that controls the amount of water the machine loads, and on other machines it engages the door lock too.

The motor that makes the whole thing spin is old which has been used for countless times, making it sluggish/slow. That's what happened to mine, so I had a repair man and have him fix it. Mine just needed some lubricating, and it went back to normal. Can't say if the same would work for you, but nevertheless, have a repairman take a look.

I have a nec nw-691, when you put it on spin cycle it brings error message --lid open??? plz help


Yuo might try making sure it is still level but I'd just try using a lower spin speed. How have to use "gentle spin" when I wash towels or my washing machine has errors and stops. If still too damp just use a gentle spin only cycle once more to finish the job.

What is hd code????


Hi Peter, If I understand your question correctly, you are asking what the code "HD" means for your machine. I am unable to find the code "HD", however, here is a list of the codes for these Maytag models, perhaps one looks similar to "HD". Hopefully this answers your question!

Washer displaying code messages
- "LF" (Washer is taking too long to fill)
Check the following:
Are the water inlet hoses kinked or clogged?
Are the water inlet valve screens clear?
Press PAUSE/CANCEL to clear display.
- "Ld" (Washer is taking too long to drain water from the wash tub)
Check the following:
Is the drain hose kinked or clogged?
Is the drain hose installed properly? See "Connect the Drain Hose." Press PAUSE/CANCEL
to clear display.
- "uL" (Unbalanced Load)
If the load is unbalanced, the washer will display this code while running an imbalanced
load correction routine at the end of the wash cycle and before the final spin. If the code
remains and the wash cycle dial is flashing after the recovery routine has stopped, open
lid and redistribute the load. Close lid and press START.
- "oL" (Over Load)
Is the washer overloaded? The washer has attempted to fill and begin the wash cycle. If
the washer is overloaded, it will drain any water and detergent that was added during the
fill. To correct the overload, remove several items and add detergent. Close lid and press
START.
- "Sd" (Suds Detected)
Did you use regular detergent?
Regular or hand-washing detergents are not recommended for this washer. Use only High
Efficiency ("HE") detergent.
Did you add too much detergent?
Always measure detergent. Follow detergent manufacturer's directions.
If excessive suds are detected, the washer will display this code while running a suds
reduction correction routine at the end of the wash cycle. The suds reduction routine
removes extra suds and assures proper rinsing of your garments. If the code remains and
the wash cycle dial is flashing after the recovery routine has stopped, re-select your
desired cycle using cold water. Press START. Do not add detergent.
- "lid" (Lid Opened)
Is the lid open? Close the lid to clear the display. If the lid remains open for more than 10
minutes, water in the wash tub will drain.
- "HC" (Cold and Hot hoses switched)
This code will appear at the end of the wash cycle to indicate that the cold and hot water
inlet hoses are switched. See "Connect the Inlet Hoses."
- "dL" (Door/Lid cannot lock)
Indicates lid is not locked. Check for items caught in the lid keeping it from closing. Press
PAUSE/CANCEL once to clear the code.
- "dU" (Door/Lid cannot unlock)
Is there excessive weight on the lid, such as a basket of laundry? Excessive weight will
keep the lid from unlocking. Press PAUSE/CANCEL once to clear the code.
- "F##" code
Press PAUSE/CANCEL once to clear code. Press START. If code appears again, call for
service.

When you start your machine is the water just go stop go stop,
Just wait for the machine to display an error code on the wash progress lights and beeps constantly.
It could be the Rotor Position Sensor, out of balance switch or lid magnetic reed switch.
Your error code will determine this.
Is your machine beeping & showing a weird pattern of lights on the wash cycle, It is displaying an error code,
To read this error code you start at the red spin light & work to the left only add up the lights that are on. Red spin light = 1 2nd rinse light =2 1st rinse light =4 last wash light=8 4th wash light=16 3rd wash light=32 2nd wash light=64 1st wash light=128
