Question about LG WM-1832C Front Load Washer
I tried to start a load of laundry this morning and the the washer would not fill with water. Everything power's on ok, and looks like normal, the motor starts to turn over the clothes, but no water enters the machine. I've taken the hoses off, and have confirmed that water still comes out of the pipes.
The fill valve may be defective or there may be a controller malfunction that prevents the fill valve from operating.

the system which controls water level is an air chamber with a small diameter pipe which goes to a pressure stat. when the correct level is reached, the pressure in the air chamber switches the pressure stat and cuts the water off. the things to look for are: gunge in the air chamber split in the pipe. faulty pressure stat to test, get a similiar length of small diameter pipe and connect it to the pressure stat instead. with the machine filling, blow gently into the pipe and see if the water intake cuts off

SOURCE: LG front loader problem
If you remove the top cover you will see the soap dispenser unit on the left. It has a large rubber hose connecting it to the drum. If you remove two screws at the front you can free the dispenser for maintenance. You can undo the clips on the various hoses and check that they are clean.
Some people report some dripping from the soap dispenser even when the hose is unblocked. This seems to be a design fault.

"LE" code Stator/Motor Error.
It was a simple fix and only cost $17.68 at PartStore.com no affiliation.
Hall Sensor 6501KW2001A
Here is the Service Manual
Bonus, it actually completes a wash cycle and does not stick at 6 minutes, drying forever.
Freakin service tech stated it was the Power Control Board, IDIOT!
While I was in there, I cleaned out the heater blower assembly and sensors. They were full of caked on lint and the sensors had debris all over them.
Also cleaned out all the lint and debris around the rubber seal, this will eliminate those annoying mildew oders.
Hope this helps someone, Happy New Year!

Pretty easy fix with a couple of strong backs. Get some pillows, lay machine on its side opposite of the lint door so pump can be seen from bottom. Unscrew cover, then 2 remaining screws that hold pump assy to machine frame. 3 screws hold motor to pump housing that is now pretty easy to get to. mark wires and disconnect. My guess is once you have motor out yo will likely find an offending coin or something. What happens is lint screen eventually needs cleaned, but something like a coin will rest on top of it and when you remove screen by default it will fall into tube to the pump, just has no where else to go, and it's a murphys law thing. Since pump is brushless, the coin likely does no harm except mess up your day, Reverse process, Wash away

Escaping water alongside a nasty smell is often the cause of a blocked water pump or resivour the more washs you do the more the lint will build up & the more the lint builds up the more bloked it will become meening the more water that will escape.. this should be an easy fix but not for everyone.. 1st make sure you have disconected all the power supply then check any or all filters you may have after that you will need to look inside to find the water resivour this will be a plastic bottle shaped for your machine just looking at it you will be able to tell if it has a lint or limescale build up if so it will need removing & flushing out.. there may also be an extra filter at the bottom front of your machine if you open this some water will leak out & you will be able to see if you have a lint build up (this will also have the best of your nasty smell in it) the smell is an effect simular to doing a wash & leaving the cloths in the machine for a few days basicly the lint is submerged in water for long periods of time giving it that smell once cleaned out the smell will subside too
Hope this helps
