I changed the seal & Bearings on my LG Washing machine WM2442HW. It will no longer go past the 10 minute left point and will eventually reports an UE error before starting the spin cycle. I did double check the shock absorbers before I closed it up. I re-leveled the unit. Could you recommend some next troubleshooting steps?

Is the machine actually moving and shaking as if it's out of balanced?

When the tub bearings fail---it is not uncommon to find evidence that indicates water had leaked onto the BALL SENSOR---causing it to malfunction.

To eliminate:

Musty odor

L-O-N-G cycle times

Dingy/yellowing whites

Suds error message

Slow spin speeds

Intermittent water leaks (from rear of washer)

And other annoying symptoms which vary brand-to brand.

Read below:

The *correct* amount of HE (High Efficiency) detergent that should be used in any front load or agitatorless top load washer with tub sizes 3.0 cu ft and larger is as follows:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Wash Load

HE 2X: (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X: (1) Teaspoon

Perform a TUB CLEAN CYCLE every (4) months.

Use: "Tide Washing Machine Cleaner"

John
I assume you are recommending the remove and replacement of the ball sensor.

Are speaking from experience of fixing this? Could you describe where this part is located? Is there a way to verify the part is faulty?

Are there other parts that I should consider?

I replaced the ball sensor this AM. Unfortunately no change. Would anybody have other experiences with resolving this?

It's a HALL sensor, not a ball sensor.
