Question about Washing Machines

LG DD Washing Machine

We've put up with the problem for the past 2 months and it's been a pain in the proverbial. Now have time to have a look at it and I'm wondering applking, if the stator is bad, why should it occasionally do a complete load without any hiccups whatsoever? Is it not more likely to be a loose connection somewhere? I'm no expert and your advice is much appreciated. I am going to reseat the connectors and try again b4 buying new parts and will let you know the result.
Warm regards and many thanks. Bas

    Well, I tried that. Didn't do anything inside the stator / rotor thingamijig as it looks like a job for an expert.

    Result is no good, problem remains unchanged so will have to call for professional help. I think it was worth a try, would have been more confident if I had been able to find a workshop / service manual, and I thank you for your assistance. Warm regards, Bas.

    Hiya applking. We've replaced the big PCB at the bottom/back of the machine and it has been working perfectly again for the past 3 weeks. Interestingly, when the tech replaced it one of the connectors was loose which also threw up the LE error code (but lots of other weird things happened as well) so the LE can show up for things other than a stator problem. I waited a while to get back to you to make sure that the problem was truly fixed because the PCB could have been damaged by another faulty part (even a stator maybe?). Thanks for your help though, it was really appreciated. Warm regards, Bas

The stator is always the problem if you are getting the LE error code. It will work sometimes because the stator is "weak". So depending on the size of load, ect. sometimes it may get through the whole cycle.

    Sorry, I would have walked you through changing the stator....not that bad of a job.....

    Glad you got it resolved. Very rare for the harness to be loose at the board, but In 14 years I still see new problems daily. Let me know if any further problems.

Sometimes the clothes come out of the washer dirtier than when I've put them in! Brown streaks that sort of come of with my finger - sort of like wet dryer lint or sludge. Rewashing takes them away,...


Your washer has too much build up of sludge from excessive use of detergent and fabric softener. You will need to purchase a package of washer machine cleaner from the local hardware store and run the washer on either "clean tub" setting or "sanitary" setting without any clothes in it. Use the cleaner at least once a week for one month and then once a month for maintenance.
Use only 2 tablespoons of detergent per wash.
Good luck

I've just had the same problem with my Samsung SW50USP and had a technician out to have a look at it. Apparently the electronics are fried and it would cost much more than it's worth to fix. Time for a new machine unfortunately.

Mold on gasket of LG WM2016CW


the biggest problem with front loaders is that the seal is so good you end up with a moisture issue all the time (which will cause mold). My suggestion to you is always leave the door open when not in use and also try not to leave clothes in the machine after a cycle is over. leaving the door open and a few good cleanings will solve your problem

LG washing machine has AWFUL mildew smell


Causes of grease, slime and black mould inside washing machine Your problem has nothing to do with the washing machine, any washing machine - even the best can be affected. I suspect your problem is mostly related to using liquid detergents that contain no bleaching agents

LG WM-1280 DD front loading washing machine


Be sure the unit is level, not just stable,with the four feet touching the floor. If the unit is not level the centrifugal force of the spin cycle will be distributed unevenly, causing more pressure to be exerted in one corner then the other. this causes the unit to slighty lift in the opposite corner, thus shaking or vibrating. Many people citing this problem have their washers in an upstairs laundry room. Some of these houses may lack the needed support to sustain these washers without the floor flexing. the quality of the building is a factor.
