Question about LG Washing Machines
How do I fix the emergency door release on my washer. It is just a piece of plastic cable that hangs from a hole and you have to pull it to open the door.
Unfortunately my wife pulled too hard and it came out. Now we have no way of opening the door this way??
If the piece is jammed (locked) in the door latch assembly, there is a manual release that you can use to open the door latch to see if the piece will come from free. The following link advises:
This may require two people. One to pull on the manual release, while the other works on retrieving the broken piece from the door latch.
Another method may be to remove the door latch assembly so you can easily manipulate it outside the machine. This link explains how to remove the door latch assembly:
Now...if the piece is jammed too far inside the door latch assembly, a last resort would be to replace the latch. I hope it does not come to that, but it may be a last resort. The link provided will give you all the necessary steps to complete this repair, if required.
I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you require additional assistance.

"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!

Run a shoelace between the door and the face of the washing machine, starting at the top, over the latch on the middle of the right hand side and down to the bottom.
Pull both ends of the shoelace towards the hinge on the left.
This pulls open the latch with NO DAMAGE and allows access to the screws that remove the latch mechanism. Easily ordered and installed with two screws and a plug to reattach.
LG give no support or reference to this easy procedure in their manual. SHAME!
