LG front load WM 1814 stops after first cycle

10 posts in this topic

LG WM 1814 starts and runs through the first wash cycle but then stops and will not drain.  There is no error code.

If we empty the machine and run it on the quick cycle it then works.

Sometimes it will run on the quick cycle with a load but not always.

We have run diagnostics and there is no error code.

We replaced the hall sensor (6501KW2001A) and it still does not work.

All functions work fine, motor goes through wash cycle and spin cycle.

Inlet works fine

Cleaned the filter and drain hose

Pump works fine

We use HE laundry detergent

Occasionally, we have received an error code for an imbalanced load but everything ran fine when we took care of that issue.

 

 

Any suggestions as to what to check next?

When you say "if we empty the machine" how are you doing that? I'm thinking intermittent pump or main control.

We empty the clothes and then run the quick cycle which empties the water.

The drain pump does work.

We think the washer stops just before it completes the wash cycle.  If we try to restart it, it immediately shuts off.

Sound like main control

Could be, but a simple voltage check at the pump will tell the story.

Thank you for your answers.  The display is not lit when it stops. The drain pump seems fine.  We are trying a new control board.

I have already ordered from repairclinic.com as you suggested.  With the return policy, no risks.  Thanks for the suggestion though!  Appreciate your help!
