What is the RPS sensor part for this washer? Should I replace the wire harness at the same time? How often does the RP sensor typically have to be replaced? I'm considering throwing away this 2 yr old machine and buying a Samsung Please help. Very frustrated

I have put my sensor part on and reassembled everything, but my rotor does not sit totally flush over the motor assembly. I can't remember if it did to begin with when I took it off. Is it supposed to stick out from the motor assembly about a half inch? I have the center bolt tightened it seems as much as possible.

My 10 year old LG TROMM washer WM2277HW had LE error code recently. The machine would start, fill with water, never start to rotate, and then the washer would shut off and display the LE code. The tub could be manually spun quite smoothly with no noise. We have only used HE detergent (bought house last year so don't know about previous owner) however my wife did probably use more than necessary on every load in the last year. I replaced the rotor position sensor switch 6501KW2002A and it worked perfectly for about 4 loads (with correct amount of HE detergent). Now I'm back to the LE error with the same issues. Recommended next steps? Thank you.

A couple weeks ago I had a problem with my washer during the wash cycle. It would make a grinding style noise and the tub would not spin during the wash cycle. However if I stopped it and did a rinse and spin it worked just fine. Someone suggested I needed to replace the rotary position sensor, so I ordered it from you guys and replaced it but now I have a different problem. Now the machine will go through the wash cycle but once it hits the rinse cycle now it makes the grinding noise the tub will not turn and it will not drain.

When the washer it turned on and started it begins the fill cycle normally. When the drum begins to turn it sounds like there is a groaning noise coming from inside but sometimes it will not spin. It seems like it wants to spin but hits an invisible barrier and after a few minutes of trying to spin will give the Le code. Before ordering parts I pulled it apart to check both the front and rear bearings and both spin freely with no resistance or noise. This leads me to believe it is the RPS causing all of my problems. I am just concerned with the noise that the drum makes when it do actually spin. Added note: When i spin the drum by hand in either direction it makes no noise at all.
