    This happens when entering the QC test mode for the washer after replacing the main board and the sensor on the stator,

  • dsargenfs Oct 07, 2010

    I have replaced the main board on my LG HW0642HW washer and the sensor located on the stator and it will not spin, the motor just wants to hum, it will not pump water, I have removed the pump and applied 110VAC directly to the pump and it spins, I checked to make sure the fins were not damaged either which they weren't

  • dsargenfs Oct 07, 2010

    Thank you for that suggestion as I hadn't tried that. I have 123 VAC at the leads for the pump. When I hooked it back up it didn't pump any water out. I have also removed the drain hose from the washer in its entirety and there is nothing in the drain hose.

  • dsargenfs Oct 07, 2010

    it isn't a UE it is appears to be nE. There have been no clothes in the washer and I have replaced the hall sensor along with the main board

    As I believe I mentioned earlier the parts people told me the part number for the main board is from a WM0642HS but the model number on the washer is WM0642HW which is shown in one of the pictures. The parts people originally sent the wrong board (sent the one for HW) and later sent the board to match the one in the washer. The two boards have different electrical connectors and have a slightly different layout

    The washer will not drain or spin. When trying to enter the test mode the washer goes directly to error code nE and will not do anything other than power the machine down. I know that nE is an unknown error. I have replaced the main board and the machine will not drain and sporadically will allow me to enter the spin cycle in test mode and normal mode. I have checked the resistance on the motor terminal (all 3 read 7.6 or 7.7) within the specs for the part. I have replaced the sensor for the motor, connected 110VAc directly to the pump and watched the blades turn at a high speed, there is no damage to them. I have verified that there is 110VAC power coming to the pump.



    Per the parts company the part number for the main board is for a "WM0642HS" model (my washer ends with HW). They sent both boards to me and they have different electrical connectors and I needed the HS series board. The washer clearly has the HW model # on it.

    also I have replaced that sensor, no one can tell me what the nE error code is. and if you see in my previous email I replaced the main board also.I have tested the resistance on the pump coil and the motor coil each reads within the parameters of where they should be

Hi,

UE means that the unit is unbalanced. Take the clothes out and see if it spins without them, if so then it might just be an unbalanced load. If it acts up all the time then you will probably need to replace your hall sensor which is clipped onto the side of your stater motor on the back of your tub. You will need to remove the entire stater motor and disconnect the hall sensor to change it out. This is the device that relays information back to the control board to tell the unit if the load is balanced or not.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

    There is no nE code on LG washers. If possible take a pic of the error code and upload so that we could have a look at it. There could be many codes resembling the same.

Hello,

There are several reasons that a washing machine won't drain or spin. The cause could be something as easy as a clog or something difficult that will need a licensed repairman. Start with the simplest possible cause and work down to the more difficult causes.
what this code simply indicate is an error code that means (no entrance).

INSTRUCTION BELOW

  • A washing machine won't spin if the water can't drain. Check hoses for any kinks or clogs that may prevent the water from draining. If a hose has kinks, try to straighten out the kinked hose. If it can't be straighten sufficiently, replace the hose.

  • If hoses are not kinked, check for clogged hoses. This can be done by using the screwdrivers to remove the hoses and looking for clogs or running a water hose through the clogged hose to remove the clog. Use the rags and bucket to clean up the water that comes out of the hoses when they are disconnected. Once the clog is cleared, put the drain hose back into place.
  • The washer should drain and spin now if a clogged or kinked hose was the problem.
  • 2 If the washer still won't drain or spin, check to see if the lid is not closing all the way or if the lid switch is not clicking into place. Close the lid and make sure that it closes all the way down. When the lid closes, the lid switch should click. If there is no clicking sound, then the switch may need to be replaced. Follow manufacturer's directions for replacing the switch. If the lid does not close all the way, visually check for signs that the lid is bent. If bent, try to bend it back into place.
  • 3 Loose or broken belts could also prevent a washing machine from draining or spinning. Pull the washer away from the wall and, using the screwdrivers and wrenches, remove the back panel. Using the flashlight, visually check for any broken or loose belts.
  • Replace any broken or loose belts. Although replacing washing machine belts is difficult, anyone who has replaced belts on a car, lawn mower or even a bicycle chain should be able to accomplish the task.
  • 4 Another possibility for a washing machine to not spin or drain is the pump. With the back panel still off the washer, check the pump with the voltmeter to ensure that the pump is getting power. If the washer is getting power, turn on the washer and listen to find out if the pump is running but the water is still not draining. It may be necessary to remove the pump and clean it or to replace the pump with a new one. Once the pump is replaced, turn on the washer to determine if it will now drain and spin.
  • 5 If all of the above steps fail to produce a washing machine that drains or spins, then it is time to call a professional repairman.

  • Use the screwdrivers and wrenches to replace the panel on the washer and push it back against the wall
  • Hope this help?.

    Thank you and thanks foe using fixya.

    UE = Unbalance Error

    The balance sensor is the likely culprit.

    CLICK HERE to see it.

    #351 in THIS DIAGRAM

    While you're in there - take a look at the vibration dampers - if one or to are damaged - it may cause this condition as well.

    Thanks!!

    Hi,

    An UE Error Code is indicative of a "Unbalanced Error". This indicates that the drum is not

    spinning in a smooth rotation. It may be necessary to rearrange the load in the drum.



    When this happens in small loads the cloth clump together and unbalances the drum. Normally it won't happen in small loads.

    When using mixed fabric loads this may happen. That is when washing jeans and t-shirt together as the jeans are heavy this may cause this error to occur.


    Just balance the load inside the drum and it will be fine


    Thank You

      Hi,

      The problem is with the pump only.When you put back the pump due to some misalignment the pump is not turning.so no draining of water taking place.I suggest you to replace the pump.

      You can order the part from below website

    My clothes were in the washer and when I went down to check there was an error code. LE The clothes were still wet, and appeared to not have gone through the rinse cycle.


    The LE is caused by over sudsing OR clothing trapped between the tubs. The LE: hall sensor shorted/destroyed from sudslock or clothes between tub. Correct the issue and party on.

    LG errors:
    IE: Water level (246) was not reached in 8 minutes
    UE: Imbalance: Load too, small too large
    OE: Drain problem took longer than 10 minutes to drain

    LG washer notes:
    Problem:
    An occasional LE error but always a slow or no spin.
    Solution:
    A Red wire going to the Hall sensor was intermittent. You can test this from the main board connector down to the connector on the hall sensor by checking continuity. There is an intermediate connector down by the motor/hall sensor so you can isolate the problem even more. Problem was in the short wire harness that connects directly to the motor and hall sensor. Could not find the open point of the wire so added a new red wire and integrated it into the harness.

    Displays an LE error code - what does this mean and how do I fix it?


    Codes for LG/Kenmore washers:
    IE: Water level (246) was not reached in 8 minutes
    UE: Imbalance: Load too, small too large
    OE: Drain problem took longer than 10 minutes to drain
    FE: Overflow issue drain pump running to comp
    PE: pressure sensor (sensor out)
    dE: door error. open door. switch is out
    LE (with a a slash in the
    middle of L. Upside down F) Thermistor out
    CE: Over amping Too much soap wrong soap
    LE: hall sensor shorted/destroyed from sudslock
    bE: Ball sensor loose connection/out of order
    EE: eeprom out test mode only
    PF: power failure momentary interuption of shocktricity
    FYI:
    Nearly all brands of "HE" detergent have incorrect instructions.

    The correct amount is as follows:

    HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Wash load

    HE 2X (double concentrated) : (1) Tablespoon

    HE 3X (triple concentrated): (1) Teaspoon

    This reduces/prevents:

    1) Musty Odor

    2) "LE" Error/Interrupted Cycle

    3) L-O-N-G Cycle Times (longer than time displayed)

    4) Insufficient Cleaning Results

    5) Small Water Leaks from the air vent behind the washer or at the
    front door gasket

    6) Damaged Hall Effect Sensor (on 2007 or older LG washers)

    7) Reduced Spin Speeds (laundry not spin-dried effectively)

    Also:

    UE: Imbalance: Load too, small too large
    OE: Drain problem took longer than 10 minutes to drain

    Won't spin


    Close the door firmly and make sure the machine is turned on. Press and hold the Chime and Extra Rinse keys until the control beeps to enter Service Mode. All indicator lights will turn off except the "Door Lock' indicator signifying the door is locked.

    Press the Rinse & Spin key then rotate the cycle selector knob in either direction to display the most recent error codes if there's any. Press and hold the cycle selector to display the number of cycles since the error occurred. List down at least five most recent codes and post it here for us to determine what the problem could be. Press and hold the Delay and Chime keys for three seconds to clear the list. Press the Rinse & Spin key again to exit diagnostic codes list.

    Press the Spin Only key while in the Service Mode to begin the Board Input Test. Set the rotary cycle selector to Super Wash then press it to display the position of the door switch. "OP" will be displayed if the door switch is open or "CL" if it is close. Replace the door lock/switch assembly (part #34001265) when "OP" is displayed even the door is close. Press the Spin Only key again to exit the Board Input Test.

    Press the Spin Speed key while in the Service Mode to begin the Board Output Test. If water is present in the tub, set the rotary cycle selector to Quick Wash then press it to turn on the drain pump and drain the water. Press the rotary cycle selector again when the water is fully drained to turn off the drain pump.

    Press the Delay button to turn on the motor and the Delay indicator light. The machine should tumble clockwise then counterclockwise with 5 second durations each and 2 second intervals. Press the Spin Speed key again to exit the Board Output Test.

    Press Off or press and hold Chime and Extra Rinse keys for three seconds to exit Service Mode. Unplugging the washer will also exit Service Mode.

    Perform the tests above and let us know the results for us to determine the cause of the problem or the necessary action to undertake and give you the specific and detailed instructions on how to fix it.
