Washer Motor Sensor Replacement – LG or Kenmore Front Load Washing
LG Washer Model: WM2277HW SN: 407KW-02NNN
The hall sensor, also known as the rotor position sensor is part of the automated system of your washing machine. It helps the control board make sure that everything is running as it should. Basically, the hall sensor keeps an eye on the washer’s motor to ensure it is working correctly and at the correct time during your washing cycle
The hall sensor on LG washing machines monitors whether the the motor is turning or not. When the control panel displays an “LE” error code, the hall sensor is telling the panel that the drum is not turning because the motor has failed or the wire harness connecting the hall sensor to the control panel has come loose. Checking to ensure the wire harness is secure on the hall sensor and testing the sensor can let you know whether the sensor needs to be replaced.
