LG WM0532HW washer: what is the proper position of the sensor

I have an LG WM0532HW wash machine and it has a Bracket assembly (4811ER3001A) that holds some sort of sensor (6501FA2462C), There is a flat end to this assembly that is plastic. I turned the machine on the side to replace the belows part, then I noticed the sensor sitting there kind of weird, looking like a robotic arm but just hanging there. So my question is: what is the proper position of the flat end surface? There is a similar protruding flat piece molded on the drum assembly that seems to match this. It is stationary and the only apparent reason is for it to transfer vibrations to the sensor. But where the sensor's end piece is (to the right as you look from the opening on the back), I do not think there is any chance doing that. On the other hand if it is supposed to be on the left it would really look awkward as design goes. I have a picture here: www.commercialtech.com/lgsensor.JPG
Is that the proper position of the arm assembly or should it be to the left of the protruding piece from the drum assembly?

It is an off balance sensor so that if the tub wobbles excessively it shuts the unit down. It rests to the right.

SOURCE: Door Latch has broken plastic tab

The door latch assembly comes as one piece. It would actually be much simpler to purchase the new latch and replace the whole assembly instead of trying to put pieces and parts back inside a latch that may or may not work after all your hard effort. If you decide to replace the latch, follow these steps: 1. Unplug the machine. 2. Remove the lower kick plate panel if you like (this can help you reach the latch from a couple of different angles). 3. Open door and feel around the rubber door boot for a wire hoop. At the bottom of the door open is a tension spring. Pull the spring apart and remove the wire hoop from the groove. 4. Gently lift the rubber boot from the groove around the door opening and push inside the machine so you can access the inside of the casing. 5. The door latch assembly is located inside the case on the right-hand side. There should be a couple of wire connectors going to it (remember how they come off). Be careful with the wires, they are small and can break. 6. Unplug the wire connectors and remove the three screws holding the latch in place from the outside of the casing. 7. There should also be a plastic retainer holding the latch in place. Remove latch from retainer. 8. Install new door latch by placing it in the plastic retainer, first. 9. Plug wires connectors in. 10. Re-install the three door latch screws. 11. Re-install rubber door boot around the door opening. Make sure it is properly seated in the groove. 12. Reinsert wire hoop. starting at the top of the door opening, carefully push the wire hoop into the groove and work your way all the way around the bottom where the tension spring would be. (A second set of hands to hold the wire hoop in replace would be handy at this point). 13. Pull tension spring apart and snap into groove. Done. Hopefully this will take care of your problems. Of course, you may not like the idea of having to purchase a whole new door latch assembly, or the effort required to remove and replace. But, it sure beats trying to rebuild the old one. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: Kenmore 22932 Top load washer has excessive vibration at end of spin cycle

IF THE FLOOR IS NOT ABSOLUTELY STABLE, IT WILL MAGNIFY A SMALL VIBRATION INTO A LARGE ONE. PUT SOMETHING ON THE DRYER IF IT SETS NEXT TO THE WASHER, AND TURN ON THE WASHER INTO SPIN. IF THE ITEM ON THE DRYER SHAKES, THE FLOOR IS MOVING.
IF THE WASHER IS ON CARPET, REMOVE THE CARPET OR CUT HOLES IN IT WHERE THE FEET ARE SO IT IS NOT SETTING ON THE CARPET. THE CARPET AND PAD WILL BE TOO SOFT FOR THE WASHER TO SET STABLE.
ALSO, PICK UP ON THE REAR OF THE WASHER TO RESET THE AUTO LEVELING REAR LEGS. YOU SHOULD HEAR THEM MOVE AND RESET WHEN YOU SET THE WASHER BACK DOWN.

Caustic soda. Be careful to wear gloves. Fill tub with water, cold will do, put in about 100gms of soda and turn on a extra large wash cycle only. Don't let the water drain, allow to stand over night, then complete wash cycle. You will find that hugh amounths of lint come loose. Repeat if necessary. I now do this about once every two months. Another thing to remember is to always leave lid open when machine is not in use, this prevents musty smells.

I have become obbsessive in sorting out the problems discussed and am now looking for a service manual for a WF-T7014PP as i want to remove the pulsators to ensure ther is no lint stuck in there. If anyone can assist please mail to lesleyfouche@vodamail.co.za

How can I make the water drain from my LG WM0532HW washer with an LE code. BTW- it's had the hall sensor and the main board replaced already.


You can turn the power on, and hit the spin speed button, and then start it. It should drain out.

If your still getting an LE error, and already have replaced the Hall sensor, it's most likely the Stator. If you know your date of purchase, this is most likely still under the 7 or 10 year warranty. Meaning LG pays for the part (over $100.00+),

I have a LG WASHER,FRONT LOADER WM0532HW KEEPS FLASHING LE,THE DRUM WILL NOT ROTATE


LE stands for locked motor error.  The first thing you should try is simply unplugging the machine for 10 minutes.  If the problem continues the next most likely cause is the hall sensor.  To get to the hall sensor remove the back cover, then remove the wheel that is attched to the drum.  Undre that wheel if the stator (motor).  At the bottom there is a sensor that spans about three of the windings.  This is the hall sensor.  It is not very expensive.  If neither of those work you will need to replace the Stator (motor)

Wm0532hw error code LE comes up but only when loaded with clothes...when it is empty it runs fine through out the cycle.


HI. this is a major warning that is signaling an issue with the drive motor. it may be burning out or, the hall sensor could be faulty as well. check the following to address this issue further.

POSSIBLE CUASES

  • The connector (3-pin, male, white) in the motor harness is not connected to the connector (3-pin, female, white) of stator assembly
  • The electrical contact between the connectores, (3-pin, male, white) in the motor harness and 4-pin, female, white connector in the main PWB assembly is bad or unstable. Or the motor harness between the sator assembly and main PWB assembly is cut (open circuit).
  • The hall sensor is out of order/defective.
