Question about LG WM-2277HW Front Load Washer
Same problem, just happened today..have had the washing machine for 3 years, never happened before...how do we fix it???
More than likely, the motor sensor has failed and needs to be replaced. You will need to purchase the motor sensor from LG.
To replace the motor sensor, remove the 4 screws in the back panel to gain access to the motor. Using a 17mm socket, remove the center bolt holding the rotor. Remove the rotor. Using a 10mm socket, remove the 6 bolts holding the stator assembly. Holding onto the stator, allow the stator to come down and you will see the sensor located on the bottom of the stator. Replace it and you should be good to go.
If this is too complicated, call a qualified LG technician.
