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

Re: LG DD Washing Machine
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.

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.
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.
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
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.
