Possible Cause for Magnet Rust Issue LG Tromm

18 February 2014 - 04:34 PM

 I got the "dreaded" LE code. First I tied the cleaning process.. machine worked fine empty although a tad noisy. But under load it still wouldn't tumble or spin. After reading your posts I took off the back of my machine and prepared to do battle with the Hall Sensor from Hell. My findings leave me a bit uncertain that the sensor is my problem. A. The magnets on the rotor have rust and I'm assuming they are causing it - see photos. B. The stator itself looks fried - and also covered in rust. C. Will the Hall sensor come with a stator assembly or do I still need to order separately? And D (and most important) where is the rust coming from?? I don't see evidence of a leak at the inputs.. actually I don't see evidence of a leak anywhere. Nothing I took apart last night showed any signs of moisture and I had tried several times to run "cleaning cycles" thinking the LE code was coming from excessive suds residue so I would think if a leak still existed I would have found evidence of that when I took the machine apart? Any thoughts? Am I out of my depth here? I am pretty handy (there's an urban legend of me switching out the color wheel on a Mitsubishi DLP 60" TV that's quite entertaining - 3 years ago .. TV still working great!) so I feel comfortable but if I get in much deeper I'm not so sure.
