LG WM2277HW Won't Spin Issue
« on: July 04, 2013, 08:28:23 PM »

LG WM2277HW Purchased 8 Years Ago.  I keep filter clean.  Will not spin, but makes high-pitched whine when trying to.  No warning light or code comes on at all.  Need help as I have a baby and can't wash clothes.  Thanks.

************

Unplug the washer and remove the rear access/service panel.

Verify that the 17mm bolt on the Rotor is tight (WM2277 washers are NOT known for loosened bolt issues but check it regardless).

Replace the HALL EFFECT SENSOR (6501KW2002A) and the WIRE HARNESS (6877ER1016D).

Excellent. I will check loose connections and order appropriate parts.  Can someone point me in the direction of how to do this?  Video? Instructions? Thanks.
