Question about LG Washing Machines

Open Question

LG WF-T552C During spin cycle agitator assembly spins (cw) and the drum does not spin at all. With no power applied and me spinning the drum I find it spins CCW freely but there is a lot of friction spinning it CW. Is this a belt issue?

SOURCE: Maytag FAV6800AWW TL washer is throwing error code

Don,

I ask folks to give me some feedback when troubleshooting dC/uC errors with a feel for Wash Basket CCW/Spin direction drive system resistance.

It sounds like the Outer Tub Bearings are going which means you have a Tub Seal Leak that took them out. The Clutch One-Way Roller clutches are probably contaminated. I would bet a bit rusty and are sticking not locking up completely in Spin Cycle causing tumbler movement at the start of Spin Cycle. See my Clutch Fix post I go into a lot of detail for a fix and just what is causing the unbalance errors in Spin Cycle

You could drop the clutch out and see if you can clean up the bearings and relieve the dC/uC unbalance errors for a while longer.

Replacing the bearings is a bit more work see these post for what is involved. If your series is a 12 or above you may have to do as this forum member did.
http://www.fixya.com/support/t3973659-fav6800aw_sn_15_top_loader_r_nunit

Series 10 & 11 from what I have learned use the upper One-Way Roller Clutch bearing ring and not the integrated Lower Outer Tub bearing as in I believe the Series 12 and above do.

Series 10 Outer Tub Bearing work I and another forum member are working on. The links will give you some direction if you DIY. http://www.fixya.com/support/t4028403-just_replaced_new_clutch_fav9800aww

What are the first two digits of your Serial Number? Will be 10 through 17.

Post back if we can help I’m an owner like you not a repair person. I feel the cost to have the Outer Tub Bearing replaced will trigger you to make a replacement decision……Rich

SOURCE: will not spin during spin portion of cycles. it

It's either a bad door switch, or motor control board. Definitely easier and cheaper to try changint he door switch first, as it fails much more often. Part number is 131763202

SOURCE: My LG front load washer WM1812 CW will not pump

The LG error code OE simply means "the pump is blocked". Presumably the water isn't being emptied properly.
As with all error codes it is possible that there is a cause other than the exact description in the error code explanation - but basically this error means as far as the washing machine is concerned it thinks the water isn't pumping out. A pump, or filter blockage is the most common cause but it could be caused by other faults such as a faulty pump, or even a blockage in the drain hose or somewhere else in the system etc.


LG has some information on this error code..

I have an LG model WF-T7015TP Turbodrum top-loader automatic washing machine. Having problem in that the drum does not agitate to and fro during the washing cucle. It's draining fine and even spin-drying...


check the agitator module unit and the start capacitor both in the back of the control panel One controls the agitation and the other starts the motor. If the start capacitor is failed simply replace it with a new one The agitator module will cost more . Have an appliance electrician check it out.

Hi-i have an lg wasshing machine 5.5kg wf-t552c.wont spin outside drum-lower plastic disc in drum spins only-drains water ok.


Now you meant that the agitator shaft works but the drum does not work. So the fault seems associated with the motor drive and could be a belt failure or a drive failure.
In this case it is important that an observsation into the fault from the motor drive is important to confirm the cause as it seems mechanically related.- since all other functions works according to the cycle.

Tub rotates CW during agitation, out of balance, hits side of metal cabinet, but no error code



Hello srcoray,

Did you replace the clutch, just trying to get a feel for your hands on experience with the machine? If you did the work did your machine use the upper roller clutch bearing along with the clutch pulley mounted roller clutch bearing?

The FAV6800AW uses a reversing motor and motor controller that powers the motor and clutch pulley to rotate CW in Wash/Agitate cycle and CCW in Spin Cycle.

In Wash/Agitate cycle the roller clutch bearing should rotate freely CW allowing the agitator shaft to drive the transmission in wash cycle driving the tumblers to rotate only not the wash basket. In spin cycle the roller clutch bearing will lock up (one-way roller clutch bearing) driving the spinner shaft to rotate the wash basket and transmission CCW. Unless my thinking is wrong it sounds like the one way roller clutch bearing is frozen or dragging and not rotating freely in wash cycle rotating the wash basket CW. I’m an owner like you and will try to help.

Just a few other questions;

If you have a load of wet clothes in the wash basket and you select Spin Only cycle will the spin cycle complete with out dc/UC errors?

With the lid raised can you rotate the wash basket CW? It should not; it should only rotate CCW and do that with very little resistance.

Spin cycle with agitation motion occurring simultaneously


Hi again,

Appreciate the "Ask Me".

I believe the dampness is due to slow spin speed as you also have concluded. And I suspect that partial winding of the motor is the culprit. Hence, replacement is in order.

As to your concern why the agitator also operate during the spin setting, it could possibly be stuck or locked agitator dogs. Agitator dogs function is better explained here by another FixYa member, jsrock516.

Cheers.

Drum spinning during wash cycle


if when in the wash cycle the tub spins then the brake in the cluch assembly is worn and to be replaced. this holds the tub from moving when in the wash cycle. thanks tallpaul
