I've got the dreaded LE error. It starts up and will do about a 1/5 spin, then give an electrical buzzing sound, then try the other direction and do the same.

I NEED to know what the resistance reading in OHMS should be for the Hall Sensor attached to the stator. The resistance reads a steady 7.5OHMS on all 3 combinations of the connection (female; red-yellow-blue plug) to the Stator, and the proper range is 5-15 Ohms, so the stator is fine.

I've checked my wiring harnesses, and no cuts tear or breaks, and the 3 wire RYB reads 0 Ohms resistance when UNPLUGGED from the PWB. So I don't think it's the wires.

My fear is that my problem now lies within the PWB, because I thought I was supposed to get 0 Ohms resistance from the Male 3 wire; red-yellow-blue plug, and I get 11 Ohms, 13 Ohms, 13Ohms resistance on that male end that goes to the stator, and I get the same directly on the 3 connections RYB (pink housing) on the PWB. PLease tell me if this is right or wrong reading.

I would love for this to be the Hall sensor, and not the PWB, but I'm not holding my breath. But, how could the pcb connections just go bad all of the sudden when all connections are sealed in that goo? Please let me know if you have any other suggestions.

Got a whole page of hall sensor gootness just aching for the sweet caress of your engorged and tingling eyeballs ==> How to test the Hall Sensor in an LG front-loading washer

If you want to gain insight into how this problem arises and how to prevent it, here's your reading assignment ==> The Dreaded LE Error Code in LG Washing Machines: Diagnosis / Troubleshooting, Root Causes, and Repair

Part link for the hall sensor ==> Rotor Position Sensor

And how to replace it...

Thank you. I don't know what I would do without forums. This might top my Triumph motorcycle forum views for a while.

damn Hall Sensor. Totally fixed it for $23. Thanks for the help!
Now on to the Fisher & Paykel double oven, where one of them only goes up to 320' and stops....
