Question about LG WM1814CW Front Load Washer

6 Answers

Do I need sensor assembly (#6501KW2002A) on WM1814CW?

Yes, I am having the dreaded LE problem with my 2 year old WM1814CW and I read most of the solutions and I am ready to fix it myself.

The problem is I don't know the exact part to order.

On the service manual of WM1814CW, sensor assembly is 6501FA2462C.
But most of you guys are talking about 6501KW2002A.

And I learned that in fact those two are not the same thing.

Which sensor assembly do I order for WM1814CW?

    Corrected the rating. Sorry about the mistake.



    By the way, 6501KW2001A & 6501KW2002A, they both work.

    the le light comes on. it looks liked the washer machine will not rotate. you can hear some type of motor or sensor but it will not rotate after trying about 2 min and then the le light comes on

    xxx2001A has smaller connecting pins and will not clip onto the stator if xxx2002A is needed.

The part number you came up with is for the out of balance sensor not the hal sensor. The correct part (if your model number is WM1814CW is 6501KW2001A. It's located behind the rotor on the back side of the stator.

I use a 24" flat bladed screw driver with a square shank. Jamb driver into vent slot next to wider blade on rotor and hold screw driver as tight to plane of rotor as possible; use socket on a breaker bar on bolt. Those bolts have lock-tight on them so use a big driver that fills the vent slot. Should loosen up. Or, use electric or air powered impact wench.

Lg washer wm2077cw had le error and did not work, blew in to tubing connecting tub to a sensor at top and now my reading went from 230 to 256. washer wont stop filling , leaks out front door. what is wrong...


When you blew into the tubing, you destroyed the water level sensor. You will need to change the water level sensor to stop the unit from over filling. That part number is 6601ER1006E. As for the LE error code, you one of 2 things go bad. Either the motor sensor has failed or the control board has failed. Chances are the motor sensor has failed and is the cheaper part to replace. The part number for that is 6501KW2002A
Good luck

That would be the first part to replace. The hall sensor is located in the motor and it's not too difficult to replace. You will need a 17mm socket to remove the center bolt holding the rotor and a 10mm socket to remove the 6 bolts holding the stator assembly. Good luck.

My washing machine is presenting LE error, I have already replaced part # 6501KW2002A - Hall Sensor Assembly. I try running QC test, I have cleaned filters on back of machine, I have drained off the water...


LE = locked rotor. Replacing most common problem (hall effect sensor) didn't work.

1. Is rotor really locked?
2. Does control board simply think rotor is locked?
3. Is wiring good?
4. Did you install a defective sensor?
5. Is circuitry on control board bad, and reading sensor wrong?
6. Do you know any good repair people who are good with high tech? I do. . . ME!

Good luck.

the Hall sensor (part number 6501KW2001A) has failed. The hall sensor is rather easy to replace, and is covered by a seven year part warranty. Take the back cover off. Take the big nut off and remove the motor rotor. Remove the bolts holding the motor windings. Remove the electric plug on the sensor and unclip it from the motor winding. Snap new sensor on and reassemble. Usually takes under a half hour. On a difficulty scale of 1 - 10, it might rate a 4. This should be a Fix-Ya for your machine, and at basically no cost!

If you go to the LG website clik on support put in your WM1814CW model number it tells you that your motor is on warranty for 7 years so you should be able to get it replaced.

LG TROMM WM 2077CW LE Error


An LE error is a locked rotor. The hall sensor on the stator part of the motor is not sensing the rotor part of the motor is turning. So the short version is you need a new stator(which has the sensor on it or just the sensor) replaced which should have a 5 year warranty on it so call LG for your nearest authorized service center

When to know if the motor is going out ?


This fix below completely fixed my LG front loader issue of the drum "freezing" and "studdering" on fill and a lot of times giving a LE (motor overload) error. Bought position sensor as described and doing a load right now!

Wolfster you are awesome...you saved me probably $200.

Definitely sounds like the position sensor is faulty. I had this happen to my WM2277HB recently. Motor would start to turn, then jerk, hum, and not move, eventually gives LE code. Powering down, all the other tips had no effect. Very unlikely that the motor itself is bad if it still turns freely. You could confirm the stator wiring is OK by unplugging it and taking resistance readings across the stator terminals of the 3-pin connector (any combo of two should be 7-15 ohms). I was able to order the part from an online electronics supplier (www.mcminone.com, P/N 6501KW2002A, description is "sensor assembly") and several other places may have it as well. You can download a basic but somewhat helpful service manual here http://136.166.4.200/contents/Laundry/WM2277.htm that has some disassembly instructions and exploded view diagrams, explains the troubleshooting mode. Don't even bother calling LG or a service tech unless it's under warranty. If you're here you probably have some basic repair skills and tools4.gif and can easily replace it yourself for about $20. My washer was about a year and a half old when the sensor went out, now it runs great again.

Try replacing the sensor assembly. Part number 6501KW2002A. It is on the stator itself where the 4 wire connector clips to. Only costs $17 + change & shipping. Mine works fine now!
