Question about LG WM-1832C Front Load Washer

5 Answers

Why won't the drum spin on my LG Tromm front load washer?

When you turn on the washer the water comes in but when it is suppose to spin a bit it just hums.

I had the same problem and it was a bad sensor assembly (#6501KW2002A). You can order
it from an online electronics store (www.mcminone.com). Cost is approx. $20.

I fixed it based on a thread from 2007:
See http://www.fixya.com/support/t159708-lg_washer_wm1832c

But, here's what I did:
1. Unplug the machine.
2. Take off the back plate that has 4 small screws.
3. Unscrew the big bolt in the middle.
4. Take off the hubcap looking part the bolt was securing.
5. Unclip the two sets of wires on the bottom of the circle you are looking at
(the set of wires to the right are connected to the sensor assembly you want to replace).
6. Unscrew the 6 smaller bolts to take off the circular piece that the sensor assembly is snapped to.
7. Mark with a pen where the sensor attaches so you know where to snap the new one.
8. Unclip the old sensor assembly and clip on the new one
9. Reassemble.

    YOU ROCK! This was an Awesome and very easy fix! Thank You!

    Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! This post worked exactly as written. Our washing machine broke on our very first day as foster parents of two small children. As you can imagine this created a very big laundry problem for us. I went online and found this post and immediately ordered the part listed with expedited shipping. It came today and I installed it following the instructions given in this post. And it worked! YAY!

    Thank you, indeed!! I ran into the same problem and I was encouraged to do the fix after reading these posts. I ordered the $19 sensor from MCM Electronics and if it weren't for the Canadian destination, it would have arrived much sooner. The LG Tromm washer worked/spun like a charm after the fix.

    Thanks again!

The nine step fix above worked like a charm. The part and two-day shipping ($18) cost a total of just under $40. The repair center wanted $100 just to come out to figure out the problem, w/o parts and labour. Three quick notes to the fix above. First, the large bolt mentioned in step three is not coming off without a wrech and hammer. You cannot just unscrew this bolt. If you have a rachet, your still going to have to hammer as the tub turns with the bolt. Second, the six bolts in step six will strip quickly with a wrench. Hopefully you have a rachet of the corect size. It could still be done with a wrech, but go slow. Lastly, I could not get the set of wires on the left to unhook, but it wasnt neccessary. You just have to be really carefull. After you disconnect the wires from the sensor on the right side, fold down the coils and remove the sensor by uncliping it. The sensor your replacing will have TWO snaps when you replace it. Frankly, you could still complete this process without my notes as I did, just go slow, and be methodical. This is an EASY fix. Good luck!

Thanks for the info. My problem statement is spot on with the others. My machine fills, agitates, drains, but won't spin. What's wosre is that if we have a load of heavy stuff, it eventually gets so overloaded, that it won't even agitate. I assume this would give me the LEthat others are seeing, but I am never there before it powers down. I only see it sitting there with the water still in the drum, which gives the false symptom of a drain issue.

I will be attempting this fix as soon as the part comes in. There is also a high quality YouTube video for replacing this. The tech removes the big bolt by manually spinning the drum and using its torque to help loosen the bolt.

Go to You Tube and look up LG/Kenmore Washer Motor Sensor (part# 6501KW2002A). I will update and let you know how this worked for me.

    Update-I Ran the wash on a cycle with no-spin button pushed. I thought if nothing else, I can wring the clothes out and put them in the dryer. After completing the no-spin cycle, I forgot to push the no-spin button on the next load. Stragely, it seems to be spinning again. I cannot look into the logic that controls the machine, but I suspect that this might reset, zero, or recalibrate the position. I still plan on ordering the part, but this might get you through until the new part arives.

My lg tromm washer sudenly started making a grinding sound and the drum does not spin. What is wrong?


You don't say whether the drum turns freely by hand.
It could be a broken spider or a seized or broken bearing or something come adrift in the tub causing it to jam.

The top will need to be removed for a closer inspection and it might be a simple and quick repair but from your description it will probably be absent from your home for a day or three and cost quite a lot.

Lg tromm wm1812cw dum makes load noise when spinning


LOUD NOISES IN MACHINE;

LOT OF THINGS TO CHECK, THE BELT LOOSE OR WORN, THE CLUTCH, THE TRANNY, THE BEARINGS BOTH TUB SEAL AND BEARING, THE REAR DRUM BEARING,
THE DRIVE PULLEY- If the washer is making a loud noise the drive pulley might be worn out, cracked, loose or bent. Remove the drive pulley and inspect it carefully. If it is damaged or defective replace it.
THE TRANSMISSION, THE MOTOR COUPLER, THE MOTOR DRIVE BEARINGS,
THE DRIVE MOTOR- If the washer is making a loud noise the drive motor bearings may have worn out. Washer motors are normally almost silent when they run. If the motor is run without a belt hooked up to it and it's loud it will have to be replaced.

I have a LG Tromm with an LE error code. I just replaced the hall sensor


With a digital volt meter you need to measure the ohms value of the hall sensor. It has 4 wires. White red blue and gray. With the meter set at 20k ohms check hall sensor at the control panel. From white to blue you should read 9.5 K ohms. Same with white to red. If u get 9.5k ohms on both readings u have a bad main board. However to me I think your pump is bad. LG washers will not spin if they don't drain.

What does the LE flashing mean? Water won't drain out of washer.


LE means that the motor sensor has failed and needs a technician to come out and repair the unit. To remove the water, turn on the unit, press the spin speed button once and press start. It will drain the water out and spin the drum.

Drum does not spin


We have an LG TROMM with the same problem, 3 years old as well. We bought the extended warranty (Huge waste of $$$$).  So far they have determined it is not the motor or either of the control boards.  We think it might be a relay switch or possibly the brake.  Good luck with yours, we just went out and bought a new washer.
