In Topic: lg wmo642hw really loud when spinning

It seems to never end.  I replaced the rotor and it wants to spin, but put a heavy load in and wants to spin but can quite get there.  Lighten the load and I could get it to spin.  The I get an LE error.  I replaced the harness and the motor position sensor with the rebuild.  I have put a link to the noise it was making since the first test run.  The only thing left is the stator.  In for a penny in for a pound I guess.

I went to LG's official parts distributoor and they list that spider as the correct part.  I found what was causing the no spin the spines on the rotor were slipping or eaten away.  Either I installed it wrong or they were just weak from age.  I had taken that of and on a couple of time and it seemed to fit back on the last time fine.  That would explain the jerky motion during the trial run.  I also tested ohms on the stator and that seems to be fine.  I found a video that showed how to test and said the reading should be 7-8 ohms.  Mine read ~8.5, I'll take it.  I have ordered a new rotor.  Hopefully that is all.

 

 

I am unsure why the spider would not slip on easliy, but what I ended up doing is resting the inner tub on the floor with the back half on top and pushing down until it stopped.  then I took a large socket that just fit on the outter bearing inner race and hammered it down.  the tub does not bind up and spins freely.

I got it back together and all is well from hand spinning stand pot, but may have messed up the stator.  I cleaned to stator and to rotor assembly with water and a brush.  I left them to dry out for at least 4 days.     The first time I ran it it seemed a little jerky in it movements and it never really went into spin.  I put a load of towles in and now it won't spin at all.  If I did ruin the stator, should i replace the rotor as well?

Just to clarify,  I ran it the first time empty and it ran jerky through the wash and rinse and it never went ito spin.
