I get the LE error code soon after the water fills. There seems to be no effort by the motor to turn or anything. No noise, no vibrations. I replaced the hall sensor, and still nothing. Would I need to replace the stator?
Answer Jeremy, First check and make sure there are no loose connections or broken wires between the main control board and the stator and motor. Remove and check the rotor and stator, make sure there aren't any cracks or breaks in the wires on the stator, or that it is warped or bent when mounted. Check for the proper resistance (8 to 11 ohms) of the stator windings: 1,yellow to 2,blue, 1yellow to 3,red, and 2,blue to 3,red . If all checks are proper and OK, the control board is not sending or receiving the information from the sensor or stator, and will need to be replaced.
I have a Lg washer about five years old and it is in a very good shape. It stop working and I open at the back of the machine and push the drum four time and the machine wash five load. The next morning it went to the same problem. I replace the hall sensor. Now the machine does not agitate, or spin or wash the clothes. I follow the yellow, red and blue wires from the control board, I cant seems to get 120 come out. I unplug the wire harness and check the ac, I was not able to get 120 volt.
Answer Hi Chibe. You are on the right track. It will be advantageous to find the supplied tech sheet inside the cabinet to aid you in the diagnosis. It allows you to put the unit in a diagnostic mode which brings up fault codes and tells you which circuit needs assistance. Use a volt/ohm meter part # TJMA-DM1 to assist you in your diagnostics. What code's are showing now? Disconnect the motor connector and measure the terminal resistance. From pin # 1-2 , # 2-1 and # 3-1 you need to have 5-15 ohm resistance. If the measurements are different then these, replace the stator part # 4417FA1994G.
