LG wm1832cw will not rotate

9 posts in this topic

This is my first post. Please help, family coming in tomorrow..

LG wm1832cw washer will not rotate (most of the time). Right now I have the rotor and stator off and it rotates smooth. With the motor on and trying to rotate it seems electrically locked, motor hums, but no rotation (i can use force to spin it). The brearker does not trip. Thanks in advance..

update, put the motor back on. when the motor energizes to rotate, it locks up. when i manually assist it, it will rotate, but grind.

Update #2: how do you pull the back metal plate off (18 outer bolts removed, 5 inner bolts inplace). It is the plate that houses the bearings. I have removed the 18 outer bolts, and have tried to pry it off (lightly), but it will not come off. I assume it has a gasket, but do not see one in the diagram?

Thought the same thing, but no error code given? What should the typical ohn reading be for a hall sensor?

<<<how do you pull the back metal plate off >>>

********************************

Do not remove the rear metal plate or the bolts---re-install them.

To replace the HALL EFFECT SENSOR...

Remove the 17mm bolt from the ROTOR

Remove the 10mm bolts which secure the STATOR ASSY (large copper windings) to the tub.

Carefully lower the STATOR ASSY and pry off the HALL EFFECT SENSOR from the *single* locking tab.

Install new HALL EFFECT SENSOR and reassemble

I have it in hand and will replace. I just never had an error code.

<<<What should the typical ohn reading be for a hall sensor?>>>

******************************

Try this first...

Have a helper look at/observe the washer stainless steel tub through the door glass.

Press and hold the SPIN SPEED and SOIL LEVEL buttons

Press the POWER button and release all three buttons

Wait until the door locks (single "click" sound)

Press the START/PAUSE button once

Is the tub rotating/tumbling and the drain motor running?

If the tub "jiggled/wobbled" momentariliy and froze---replace the HALL EFFECT SENSOR.

If the tub turns/tumbles slowly and somewhat haltingly---and the MOTOR g-r-o-w-l-s and g-r-i-n-d-s---replace the HALL EFFECT SENSOR
