The specification is 10K ohms measured between each wire which is the hall effect sensor itself. Are you reading 5K ohms or 5 ohms between each wire? Either way, they sound like low ratings since even 5K would be a 50% variance in what the engineers are expecting.
I cannot speak for how your meter works, but usually I would expect a 'K' to show up on the display when when reading kilo ohms. You have mentioned stator assembly twice, but the stator is the large copper wired unit which is part of the motor, and the hall effect sensor snaps onto it. You said you replaced the sensor already based on a photo you located so I am just making sure we are talking about the same thing. Up until about a year ago, the sensors were the usual cause of the 'LE' error due to manufacturing problems. But having one fail out of the box is a bit of a stretch so I would have a good look at the harness.
just to make sure I'm not high, is this what I do for the first check?i) remove the blue/white/red/gray connector from the main PWBii) turn power to the washer oniii) with my multimeter set to 20 DC voltage, stick the prongs in the squares where the white and gray cable should beiv) expect to see 10 --> 15vdc in the readingI do suspect the board is bad as I know for sure that partstore sent me a used item. The previous purchaser left the RMA in the static bag it came in.For the second test, do the same thing but measure between blue and gray while turning the drum. Hope to see a pulsing 10VDC... Repeat with red and grayI think I'll get this done first before continuing with the rest.
I've got a similar problem with my LG Washer...No Power, replaced Main Board, Filter Assembly, and Display.......still no power to machineLooking into Sensor switch and trying to test... Did you replace?Were u able to solve your problem?
I had a similar problem with an occasional LE error but always a slow or no spin. Found the Red wire going to the Hall sensor was intermittent. You can test this from the main board connector down to the connector on the hall sensor by checking continuity. There is an intermediate connector down by the motor/hall sensor so you can isolate the problem even more. My problem was in the short wire harness that connects directly to the motor and hall sensor. I could not find the open point of the wire so I added a new red wire and integrated it into the harness. All is Good!!!The model was WM2487HWM
Nearly all intermittent "LE" errors are caused by incorect type or amount of detergent.The following amounts are the correct amounts for HE (High Efficiency/Low Suds) detergent:HE : (2) Tablespoons Per WashloadHE 2X : (1) TablespoonHE 3X : (1) TablespoonA break in the wire at the HALL EFFECT SENSOR connector--is very rare (but not impossible).I've never seen this occur.
