Question about LG WM-2277HW Front Load Washer
I am getting an LE error code on my LG wm2277hb washer. I have tested the stator and it appears to be good (ohms test between connectors). I have also replaced the Hall sensor as well. I've looked for bad/ broken wires but haven't found any. The motor doesn't seem to have any problems spinning. The drum spins freely without issues or noise. The motor seems to have no problems turning as it will cycle through the wash cycle without getting stuck. I have also run it through the diagnostic cycle and the motor spins the drum without issues. I am wondering, could be the control board causing this issue somehow?
If the control board does not receive the input it will not operate does the door lock? However:
The attachment shows how to diagnose and repair a failed hall sensor, the usual cause of
an LE error code.
DO NOT replace the stator until the hall sensor has been tested. 98% of LE error codes are
caused by failed hall sensors.
[DD motor SVC check process ]
1) Gentle wash cycles, such as Perm Press, Delicates, Hand Wash, and Wool/Silk should only be used for
smaller loads. Because these cycles are more gentle in tumbling and spinning, putting too much in the
drum can register an issue with the motor. Remove items, reset unit and test with a Rinse/Spin cycle.
2) Don't replace the PCB when the hall sensor is replaced.
Check the hall sensor as shown in the new process.
O have a file I can send but can not upload here if you want it, contact me email@example.com please put hall sensor in subject line. Thanks

SOURCE: how can I make the
You can turn the power on, and hit the spin speed button, and then start it. It should drain out.
If your still getting an LE error, and already have replaced the Hall sensor, it's most likely the Stator. If you know your date of purchase, this is most likely still under the 7 or 10 year warranty. Meaning LG pays for the part (over $100.00+),

I fixed this myself. I found an on-line LG service manual and bought the hall sensor (about $30). It took all of a half an hour to repair this myself. I read that too much soap and fabric softener will make the circuits on the mother board heat up and short out the hall sensor (gunk and resistance on the wash drum). It is running like a top again. The local parts store said to periodically run bleach and water through the soap, and softener despenser to help keep it clean.

Testimonial: "I finally got the balance sensor yesterday and installed it, and it fixed the problem! I would of installed the sensor alot sooner, but at repair clinic they have that part number listed as being a 'Humidity Sensor'. I couldn't understand why there would be a Humidity sensor in that particular spot, from experience it did seem to be a balance sensor, but like I said repairclinic.com said it was a humidity sensor so I was hesitant to replace it at first. So I changed the Hall sensor and the shock absorbers first with no effect. i'm glad I got it fixed, because after messing with it for so long and all the stress it gave me, I was about to use it as target practice haha. thanks"
