Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

It does sound as if the motor requires replacement because it is struggling, particularly when called upon to run the spin cycle. It is not uncommon to find that the brushes are worn sufficiently for them to not make perfect contact with the commutator at the higher speeds- bouncing and sparking. It might be suggested that just the brushes on the motor want changing; experience (of others) suggests that they may only last months rather than many years UNLESS the motor itself is refurbished. Refurbishment includes skimming the commutator on which the brushes run. Without skimming the brushes do not sit cleanly on the commutator (like the worn ones!), often causing excessive sparking and excessive wear on BOTH. Alternately a new motor! I changed the motor on our 19+ year-old Bosch at a cost of GBP250 ;-0(
The choice of course is entirely up to you- but do not forget that it is not an uncommon fault, especially if the washer is not exactly new. Others I have given this advice to have chosen new brushes and I don't blame them!
Good luck,
John C

check on the voltage to the motor when the program goes to the SPIN mode. If there is no voltage the fault lies with the program controller unit. If present then check the motor capacitors and drive.

The display is showing se during the spin cyccle???


Hello there and than you for choosing fixya
LG error code SE LG washing machine error code SE indicates a "motor fault" although the code also says it could be a main PCB fault. They recommend to, "try the motor first". It's vague and you really need an engineer to try and sort this one. You can't possibly justify "trying the motor first" if you are a DIYer unless you at least know how to test a motor for faults and check its connections.

My washing machine now reads lr and wont spin or wash


The lr fault code simply means Locked Rotor.This indicates that the main motor is not being detected as running by the control board in the console.This could be a wiring problem between the motor control board in the right hand base area and the main control board up top.Itmost likely is a failed motor control board or drive motor.

Check whether water is fully drained. Since the motor worked during wash motor is not faulty.

Check relay that poers the motor during spin mode. May be micro controller fault posiible.

1 Answer

No spin


Code Lr indicates a fault or failure with the motor. Manual refers user to contact a service rep. First check your warrantee and do a look up on recalls (you can use the Maytag homepage) as some of the earlier versions of this model were recalled and Maytag has agree to some forms of restitution/repair and or replacement assistance.
