If this is a front loader and older model check the spider arm on the back of the drum it may be corroded and putting the drum off center at low speed. I just replaced the drum to tub gasket and the spider arm which was severely corroded (name may not be correct go to the LG parts site)

    Spyder is correct and a very good guess. Good videos on YouTube, repairclinic.com or appliancepartpros.com

SOURCE: grinding noise when drum rotates

may be a foreign object trapped in between the inner and outer tub. Major Disassembly required to split the outer tub. May also be the rear bearing in which case back half will have to be replaced.

SOURCE: LG LE Error code

The 'LE' error message indicates the control board has detected that the motor is either not turning, or has locked up for some reason. Monitoring the motor is the job of the hall effect sensor board which constantly determines the direction and speed of the motor and feeds that information back to the control board. If there is a problem between what the motor should be doing and what the hall effect sensor says the motor is doing, the 'LE' will be displayed and the cycle will be stopped.

If it comes on and runs I would keep it, I would just take the machine part and check everything that I could to make sure that it was safe to use. As far as the noise you mentioned, check the blower wheel, felt and glides and bearing kit.

Code LE on wm2277hb washer


I would pull the back panel off, and do a general inspection. When moved, things can get moved out of place by bumps and bouncing and may be apparent by inspection. Most front loaders use either a variable diameter pulley or a gearbox to change the drum rotation speed from slosh to spin. Take a look at the belt that on the pulley on the drum 'axle' and see if there is an apparent mechanism to 'shift into hi gear'. The code is just reporting that it could not spin. A visible inspection may reveal the cause.

Something is caught between the inner tub and the outer tub would be my guess. Very doubtful it's a bearing. And hard to believe it's the motor.

I would say that it was more likely to be a suspension issue, causing the load to become uneven & this creates further shaking. I had a similar one but it was a hotpoint, I turned out to be cheaper to replace the machine due to its age, I Hope this helps

Foul smell inn LG Washer


you need to remove the inner wash drum and clean out the outer drum of ALL the soap and softener in the outer drum so it can drain properly, as it has started growing mold/mildew in the outer drum,also while it is out clean the door seal boot and make sure the drain boot hole is clear too that drains to the outer drum so it can all go down the drain,then put it back together and hot wash an empty tub in hot water and bleach

With a 10 year warranty on their direct drive washer motor, eliminating a clutch or transmission, those enerty star LG's generally preform very well. (one of my customers runs 10 loads a day, 365 days a year in his)
Sounds like the shaft may have seperated from the three spider arms which actually turn the drum. To remove, you may have to grind end of bolt off motor shaft to facilitate dissassembly. It's a rather involved process. Prevent future mold and mildew issues by cleaning out the drain filter and then using a front load washer cleaner on longest, hottest cycle with no clothes (like ahfresh or washer magic, or whirlaway hot tub cleaner, to name a few.) then use not more that one tablespoon of HE detergent and a max of a teaspoon of fabric softener (if you use it) per load, as these machines are using very little water. (when you split the tub to replace the drive spider, use a pressure washer to clean out the inside of the outer drum and the back side of the inner tub) BTW, I have not found any reason to not stick with my LG washer and dryer. My seven year old set worked many a load, and still works great.

did you clean pump out by removing acess port on front end of pump? also you can ckd pump impeller by removing screws around pump body impeller will free wheel but should have some resistance to turning by hand if no water in tub reinstall pump put in drain spin to see if drum will spin if it does forget main motor ..motor is most reliable par on those washers

LG WM1812CW noise


Other than seperating the drums you could try to remove the heater element which will allow you limited access to the cavity between the drums. Shine a torch in there and rotate the inner drum slowly untill the offending piece comes into view. Remove with a long tweesers or hook.
