I'm In the process of doing this myself. Now. Ours came off fairly easy. When You take the stator cover off (which can be tight) put the bolt back in the center and give it a few smacks w a hammer while suspending the tub. This should release the tub.

My LG washing machine is making an awful sound when the tub is spinning. Regardless if there is a load of laundry in there or not? Then the LE code appears and it stops?


Most likely the rear seal has failed and thus water made it into the rear drum bearings. Bad news. You can generally confirm this by removing the rear access cover to see if there is sign of water leakage from the center of the drum in back. (rusty stains on the motor or actual water drips there) If so, rear bearing replacement and a new "spider" could run over $500. If no sign of water leakage, possibly only the inner spline of the motor rotor stripped out, which is an easy and MUCH less costly repair. (rotor carries at least a 5 year part warranty too. Newer models cover it up to 10 years)

Unit starts, fills, you can hear a whirring noise when motor tries to rotate drum


IF you are lucky, the spline of the motor rotor has stripped out. It is an easy repair (about a 2 on a 1-10 difficulty scale), and the part carries a 5 year warranty (minimum, up to 10 years on newer models) Remove back cover, unscrew bolt at center of motor, pull rotor off. If spline is stripped from rotor, replace rotor and you're done. IF SPLINE IS NOT STRIPPED ....... Oh s***! The drive shaft has broken loose from the three arms which attach it to the drum. (the part is called the "spider") To repair, remove bolt on end of shaft at center of motor. You may have to cut it with an angle grinder, but don't worry about that, because the shaft has to be replaced anyway. Remove motor rotor and stator. Remove washer front, drain hose, fill hose, shock absorbers, support springs, all wires attached to outer drum, and eventually the entire outer drum. Remove bolts between front and back halves of outer tub to allow removal of inner drum. Remove 6 bolts holding 3 arms of spider to back of inner drum. Re-assemble with new spider and new bolt for end of shaft. If you can do it in under two hours, give yourself a big pat on the back. This is about a 9.5 on a 1 - 10 difficulty scale for repairs on this washer.

We keep getting an overload motor message and the washer won't activate. What is the most likley cause?


Sometimes just running a bulky load at a high spin speed will do that, but if that is not the only time it happens, then replace the Hall sensor. It is a small part cliped onto the stationary coils of the motor. Unplug machine. Remove back cover. Remove large bolt in center of motor rotor. Pull rotor off. Remove metric bolts from stationary coils to remove coils. Unplug electric connectors from coils and Hall sensor. Unclip Hall sensor from coils. Reverse process to install new sensor. (note: sensor itself has 5, 7, or 10 year warranty, depending on when the unit was manufactured, but is not that expensive anyway) Other much more unlikely causes could be a bad motor stator, rotor, wire connecting motor to control board, plug in of wire at motor or board, board itself, or the shaft of the "spider" loose from the rest of the spider. (three arms of spider attach to the back of the inner wash drum)

Hi i have a lg dd intelowasher 7kg wm108fhd, and it squeaks


Without actually being able to hear it, this is a bit difficult, but first unplug the machine and shake the tub by hand. Squeaking now = good, minor problem like a shock absorber or loose part/ unbalanced machine. No squeak now = rather bad to very bad.
Rather bad would be an object between the inner and outer tub (usually a scrapping sound)
Very bad would be the shaft from the "spider" has seperated. (uncommon, but sounds likely in your case) the spider is the drive shaft and the three arms (normally fused as one solid part) which drives the inner tub. Replacement is at least a two hour job, if you've done one before, and it's still a pain to do. The first step is to remove the large nut at the center of the "hub cap" (the direct drive motor's rotor) If that does not come off, you have to use an angle grinder or something similar to grind or cut it off. The shaft would need to be replace anyway if the shaft has seperated from the spider arms. (be careful not to damage the "hub cap" (motor rotor) Then the rotor is removed, the bolts behind it removed to remove the motor's stator (all those electrical coils) unplug the plugs to the stator, and now the real fun begins. You have to remove the entire outer drum from the machine, seperate the two halves of the outer drum so you can remove the six bolts holding the spider onto the inner drum. Re-assembly is no easy job either, especially lifting the tub assembly to hook the springs back on. On a difficulty scale of 1 - 10 for this washer's repairs, this one is a 10. I would not recommend this for a do it yourselfer.

Receiving LE error before first spin. had to drain


Check Pcappliance.com and give your model no. and ask for a hall sensor. Remove the back after unplugging the unit. Remove the bolt in the center holding the big round rotor on the spider shaft/ Pull the rotor off and you will seee the stator. At the bottom where the wires plug in is the hall sensor. Use a ten mm socket to remove all the screws from the stator and drop it.down easily un snap the old hall sensor and snap on the new one. plug the harness back into the sensor and re-assemble.

The part number you came up with is for the out of balance sensor not the hal sensor. The correct part (if your model number is WM1814CW is 6501KW2001A. It's located behind the rotor on the back side of the stator.
