Drum won't spin

The drum on my LG WM-2432H won't spin, sounds like its stuck but when I turn it by hand it spins fine, I have taken the whole thing apart and nothing seems to have fixed it, do I need a new motor or something?

Re: drum won't spin

Replace the motor sensor 1st to see if that will take care of it.  If not, then the motor may have a problem.

Error code LE what does it mean

The LE error indicates that the Controller is having trouble communicating with the motor.

The most common cause for this is if something gets wedged in and the drum can't turn freely. Try turning it by hand to make sure it is free. The next most common cause is if someone spins the drum moderately fast with the washer turned off. I.e. if you give it a spin to make sure their isn't a sock stuck to the drum.. To fix this, unplug the machine and turn the drum counterclockwise 4 full rotations followed by 4 rotations clockwise at low speed. Plug it back in and see if that fixes it.

If that's not it, then there is a sensor called the Hall Sensor that could be the problem. I've never had to replace one of these and can't comment further.

Loud noise when washing machine is spinning

The loud noise could be caused by something stuck in the washer. Check the washer for signs of loose objects. It can also be caused by a worn-out belt.

Spinning Motor is overloading


Thanks for using FixYa. LE error is a communication error between the control board and the motor. In you LG washer the Hall Effect sensor board monitors the direction and speed of the motor and sends this information to the control board. Usually the issue is with this Hall Effect sensor going bad and should be replaced. However, to make sure it’s not a locked motor, try turning the drum with your hand. And, if you feel some resistance while turning the drum or the drum doesn’t move freely then the motor is locked and you’ll need to get it replaced. If it is fine then it is the Sensor. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
