LG WD-3243RHD Front Load Makes grinding, crackling noise

Hi,
i've had my All in one LG WD-3243RHD Front Load for almost 2 years, and one day i come home my clothes are soaked. I drain the washer/dryer and run the load again, after it fills with water, it starts to make a grinding,crackling noise!! and after awhile it cuts off and there still water in the washer.

any thoughts?

Fixed!

"LE" code Stator/Motor Error.

It was a simple fix and only cost $17.68 at PartStore.com no affiliation.

Hall Sensor 6501KW2001A

http://www.partstore.com/Part/LG+Electronics+Incorporated/LG+Electronics%2fZenith/6501KW2001A/New.aspx

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!

I had the same issue.
My unit displayed error code OE.

Maybe my situation might solve your issues.

OE is the code for unit will not drain.
The crackling noise was a faulty drain pump.

Here's what I did.
Manually drain the unit.
Using the LG service manual, dissassembled the LG washer/dryer unit in the following order:
1) control panel
2) top lid
3) front plate (washer door)
4) drain pump.

inspected drain pump and found one damaged.
ordered parts from http://www.mcmelectronics.com/

Replaced pump - all is working.

Hope this helps!

Could be drum bearings. or crackling noise can be caused by motor brushes being worn out

I have a similar problem with my LG WD-3245RHD. I had a repairman come out to look at it and he said I needed a new circuit/control board. I have not been able to locate this replacement part to date. RepairClinic.com has one listed, but it is not in stock.

I have an LG WD 3243RHD washing machine/dryer combo and it is displaying LE. Is there anything I can do without calling a repairman?


LE on this machine indicates a motor error. The connector in the lead wire assembly is not connected to the connector of the stator assembly. You need to reconnect or repair the connector. Also, it could mean that the Hall Sensor is defective and you may need to replace the Stator Assembly.

Dryer will not Dry!


A conventional dryer uses 240 volts to heat air, which passes through the tumbling laundry, picking up moisture, which is then vented to the building's exterior.
Your dryer uses 120 volts to warm air, which picks up moisture from the tumbling clothes, which then passes through a vent pipe in the back right corner of the dryer where a cold water spray causes the moisture to condense, run to the drain, and then is pumped out of the washer/dryer combo. There is no exterior vent to the outside of the building. Drying with your dryer will take at least twice as long as with a standard dryer. You can wash large loads, but can only dry small loads, and the clothes will not be as dry when dryer is finished as they will be with a standard dryer.
All that said, to make sure your dryer is performing as well as it can, you might like to take the back cover off and check the elbow at the very left bottom corner (when viewed from behind) to make sure nothing is obstructing the flow of water under the tub to the drain.
