LG WM2277HS spin and UE code issues

06 July 2013 - 07:28 PM

Hello and this place is a great resource. I had to change the bellows and hot water inlet valve due to leaks. I have since not been able to get the machine to run a full cycle. I get the UE code, which led me to understand two truths. We were using way too much HE detergent, and at the HALL sensor was likely suspect.

Serial number: 607KWAT02320

I ordered the replacement from repairclinic and with the videos had it installed in no time. Tried running vinegar to get the "drum cleansing and purification" process started. I have also bought the Tide Drum Cleaner pouches which I plan on using as well.

My machine will run most of its cycle, but gets hung at "spin mode". It never gets up to speed, but keeps draining and checking the load by spinning a few rotations each way then reversing. My last efforts have been following an old post from here. Tossed in a single towel and did the "rinse and spin" mode. It got down to 10 minutes showing and ran there for probably ten minutes before shutting down flashing and beeping the UE code.

I have done the best I can to verify it is level and true on garage concrete floor. There doesn't seem to be any true out of balance, but I am open to thoughts. Drum spins freely by hand. I have unplugged, spun both direction by hand. The lights cycle and then wait ten minutes plug back in. Still no joy.

Is this the main board? The HALL sensor bad? I appreciate your help in advance.
