    Thanks Tom, As it turned out, it was the Rotor sensor wire harness. Unwrapped all the tape and found multiple cracks in the the insulation, and one wire was completely broken.

LE error (checked stator and replaced HAll sensor already)

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 ]

Pre Check
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 please put hall sensor in subject line. Thanks

New Hall Sensor & Rotor and code LE with some ringing noise

The LE code is displayed when the motor goes into an overload situation, if you have changed the Hall sensor and rotor, the only other problem is the stator overheating which will bring on the LE display.
Check the stator assembly, replace is faulty.

Spin cycle isnt spinning. it will spin slowly during rinse but not spin cycle

Are you receiving a "LE" error code on the display? If so, you'll possibly need a Hall sensor or Stator assembly replacement. If you have your units date of purchase, it will possibly fall under the 7 or 10 year warranty on the direct drive assembly which includes hall sensor/stator/ and the rotor.

You can refer to LG for service if you'd like.

If your husband has already replaced the Hall sensor, it's most likely going to be a Stator problem. You can Ohm the stator out, it should read between 5 and 15 ohm's. If not, then you need a new Stator assembly, which also comes with a new hall sensor, typically. These Stators fall under the 7 or 10 year direct drive warranty, if you have proper date of purchase paperwork and model+serial number.

We keep getting an overload motor message and the washer won't activate. What is the most likley cause?

Sometimes just running a bulky load at a high spin speed will do that, but if that is not the only time it happens, then replace the Hall sensor. It is a small part cliped onto the stationary coils of the motor. Unplug machine. Remove back cover. Remove large bolt in center of motor rotor. Pull rotor off. Remove metric bolts from stationary coils to remove coils. Unplug electric connectors from coils and Hall sensor. Unclip Hall sensor from coils. Reverse process to install new sensor. (note: sensor itself has 5, 7, or 10 year warranty, depending on when the unit was manufactured, but is not that expensive anyway) Other much more unlikely causes could be a bad motor stator, rotor, wire connecting motor to control board, plug in of wire at motor or board, board itself, or the shaft of the "spider" loose from the rest of the spider. (three arms of spider attach to the back of the inner wash drum)

Change the Hall sensor, located on the motor windings (stator). Easy and cheap fix. (part is covered by a 10 year warranty) Take back cover off, remove bolt at center of rotor, remove rotor, remove bolts holding stator, unclip white Hall sensor from stator, replace sensor, reassemble. Done! That's a great machine.

Getting code LE supposed to be motor overload according to manual do motors usually go bad or could it be in circuit board control

Motors rarely go bad. A Hall sensor, clipped onto the motor, can go bad, and is rather easy to replace. (the whole motor is easy to replace, for that matter) LE codes can also be caused by bulky loads, like quilts, sleeping bags, pillows, etc., being washed using a high spin speed. Always use a low spin speed for those type items. So, unplug machine, and replug. try another load, making sure to use appropriate spin speed for the load. If LE re-occurs, change the Hall sensor. (It has at least a 5 year part warranty on it in the US) To change Hall sensor, unplug machine, remove back cover, remove bolt from center of motor rotor, remove rotor, remove wire clamps and ground screw, remove 6 bolts holding motor stator (with all those electric coils), unplug wires from stator and sensor, unclip white plastic hall sensor from stator, replace hall sensor with new one, re-assemble. Sounds like a lot, but on a difficulty scale of 1 -10, it's only about a 3.

I got an E3 flashing, what does that mean. The

Okay; This will essentially be a Hall Sensor fault. The Error code (E3) Is issued when the Motor control board is attempting to drive the motor (during the spin out), but is not seeing any tachometer response readings. The Hall sensor monitors such movements to relay the necessary rotation information to the Motor control board. When the Hall malfunctions, the MCB will assume that the motor is "locked" and it will issue the (E3) code.

The necessary actions are to replace the Hall sensor. Here is a picture of the Stator(Motor) and Hall sensor.
Click here to access the service/repair manual for your unit. This manual will help you disassemble the affected area. You will first need to remove the rear access panel, before gaining access to the affected section. Once the rear panel is removed, focus on page 33-34 to help with removing the stator so that you can replace the damaged hall sensor. Please allow time for the manual to download, due to its size.

  • Once you have replaced the defective Hall sensor, the unit will return to its normal operating status.

Receiving LE error before first spin. had to drain

Check and give your model no. and ask for a hall sensor. Remove the back after unplugging the unit. Remove the bolt in the center holding the big round rotor on the spider shaft/ Pull the rotor off and you will seee the stator. At the bottom where the wires plug in is the hall sensor. Use a ten mm socket to remove all the screws from the stator and drop it.down easily un snap the old hall sensor and snap on the new one. plug the harness back into the sensor and re-assemble.
