Question about LG Washing Machines

Open Question

F1406TDSP direct drive, 8Kg machine, in service from september 2008. Rear drum assembly replaced to fix punctured drum. After replacement, we now have an intermittent fault where the machine closes down (with a jingle playing) in the middle of a cycle (no specific cycle). Press On button and the display invites you to starts a new cycle, as if the machine had been powered on from cold. Comet have been here twice now trying to fix it and replaced the control panel three days ago, still faulty. On some occassions, it will not start up again when the On button is pressed. The power has to be removed for 30 (ish) seconds to let the solenoid reset in the PSU. After that, it will start again but could last a matter of seconds before it fails a gain as described. Any input would be appreciated. The machine has been down now for approximately 6 weeks. Thank you, George

SOURCE: push start button on control panel - machine does not start

only 2 things can cause this.
1 the control is set to lock out mode. just hold the lock button for 5 seconds and it should go back to normal mode.
or 2 the controls user interface has an internal failure. its the part that has the switches and tells the computer what to do. either way call whirlpool and see if its still covered by their warranty.
of yeah and the 3rd thing is you have no power to unit. make sure the outlet is good by trying something else in the same outlet, like a light or hairdryer.

SOURCE: Maytag Neptune Top Load FAV6800AWW -- tub/motor will not spin

Hey Cameron,
I saw you post today on another forum and did not have time to put my thoughts down before work. I agree not a clutch issue I had to :), you would be so lucky. I own the machine and can’t offer any more troubleshooting then what you have done, good job of that. Unfortunately the FAV6800AW/FAV9800AW SM doesn’t have a whole lot of support for troubleshooting beyond what you have done for this issue. I found more info from the MAH3000 manual on the technical operation of the motor controller (slightly different controller). Both machines use the same troubleshooting paths. Remove JP4 which is;
P1 Motor Control common
P2 Torque (to Motor Controller) see page 1-11 MAH3000
P3 Motor Control Tach (to control board input)
My WAG is replace the Motor Controller 1st, then Control board 2nd and a possible tach issue related to the motor. That’s enough WAGing,…. but with troubleshooting not a complete WAG :).
Take a look at pages 2-5 thru 2-11, I keyed in on page 2-11 in the MAH3000, it may give you some additional insight, I know we are dealing with different machine designs but I think the designs are close regarding motor controller, the motor and what the Control Board is doing and looking for with input from the Motor Controller. I wish the FAV6800AW/FAV9800AW SM gave this kind of detail for troubleshooting. There is a nice little troubleshooting table on 2-11.
I keyed in on this note;

The motor control monitors the signals and communicates this information to the machine control (control board). The purpose of this signal is to tell the motor when to energize each winding in the motor and to tell the machine control the actual motor speed.

Then this note;
Note: If the machine control board does not receive an input signal from the motor control/tachometer circuit (JP4 connector), the motor speed will rapidly accelerate for 5 seconds then shut down. The machine control will sense a "locked rotor" condition and the motor will stop. If the motor control does not receive an input signal from the motor, the motor will "****" for 5 seconds then shut down.

I don’t believe you have that condition. I have worked with a forum member who had an issue with the motor controller related to an Lr error, locked rotor error and replacing the Motor Controller fixed the issue. Form here I vote for an issue with the Motor Controller. Not having known good parts makes this a difficult job.
The control board is under warranty for 5 yrs from DOP, the Control Board is 2 yrs. Ebay is a good source 25001079

I would push Maytag CSV for both. I got them to send me a Control Board after discussing my troubleshooting and that I had a neighbor (me) that was a repair tech who would install. I also had to send them copy of my warranty not sure why they beeded that my machine was on file with them.
In your console you will find a Troubleshooting guide if you haven’t pulled it out already. It has the schematic for the machine which I find handy. If you want a soft PDF copy of the schematic I can e-mail you. Just ping me at dh1200s@yahoo.com. I use that for one-way contact, just respond back on this post if you ping me, I don’t check the account for month’s at a time.
With my limited knowledge I will try to help you. Good luck. Rich

SOURCE: LE fault code for LG WD-1019bd washer

I found that in winter time not a problem with my LG front loader, but when the temperature went over 30 Celsius the problem came back and intermittent like yours did, there was also an unusual noise coming from the machine.
What I did to fix the problem was to remove the stator and place it in the freezer for about half an hour or so, I also cleaned any minor dust and grit from both the Stator magnets and the Stator drum, replaced it still very cold and now it works well with no more unusual noise and the outside temperature has no more bearing on the machine not spinning this day!
I hope this helps!
Regard
Andre’

I have a LG washing machine Wm2277hb. it needs outer tub bearings. what is a fair cost for thi service, or can i do it myself?


It would cost about $500 to $700 to replace the bearing. It is a big job because the drum has to be replaced because the bearing may have damaged the drum shaft so it's recommended to replace the drum assembly along with the bearing assembly. If you decide to do it yourself, you will need:
The rear tub assembly which includes the bearings The tub seal Drum assembly
Good luck.

Machine makes loud grinding noise and the drum will not spin.


Ok, your direct drive system is experiencing gear breakdown issues. the transmission(gearbox) is stripped and causing the grinding situation. The clutch is ruined as well. you may have some minor electrical motor trauma as well. i recommend disassembling the unit if possible, to inspect the direct drive and transmission/clutch assembly. you should see the drive/transmission under the drum assembly.

Check thoroughly for trauma spots. replace the direct drive assembly if damage is noticed.

There should be some kind of oil leakage around the drive assembly. inspect the motor as well.

If the motor is not smoking or humming, it should be fine. More than likely, it will be the drive and transmission assembly that will need to be replaced.

Please rate and have a great day:)
