Hey, I hear you on that, and I also realize how detergent makers want you to use more than needed--it's in their best financial interest.  :)

But on the flip side, I've experienced dingy laundry too often when I skimp. Not saying "fill Tide's detergent cup to the to top" but am saying that 1-2 tbsp is less than what I used to get even dingy detergent.
Small update. I recently switched from Tide to Target's store brand detergent. It appears Target's detergent is more concentrated. It seems like I'm only using about 2 tbsp with it.

I knew after searching this site I would find the answer to my question.  O0

Neighbor has a LG WM0532HW washer with the LE error code Im helping her with. I started it in a normal cycle and when the motor starts to aggitate, it sounds like a motor that the start winding wasnt disconnecting. I checked the motor, windings are good. I checked the harness, its good. My first thought was the hall effect sensor. I was thinking it is giving the board a reading that the motor hasnt started or its trying to start thus the growl and buzz sound I heard.

Going back to check that board before the neighbor throws parts at it.

Hall sensor is a good thing to check with that, but here is what I just ran into on an LG  motor..  the main bolt in the rear had started to back out, allowing the rotor to wobble and the drum to start to inch forward.  Make sure that bolt in the center is tight as this one wobbled the splines off the the rotor.

Not the sharpest pic, but it should give you an idea.

Hi Tech Brian

I know this is a very old post, but I found yours to be the most helpful to a newbie like me. I have an LG WM2277HW and this is the last post I made on another forum, but have not had any answers yet. thought you may be able to help......

"I went back to the drawing board....tested Hall Sensor and....

(1) not getting any cont. on White/Red and White/ the Hall Sensor is gone as well?.....and...

(2) did the QC test for low drum spin (IF81) and first time it groaned, second time, nothing....test voltage output with just power on (nothing...expected?), then tested in QC test mode...still nothing?

does this mean the power board is faulty.....any double check of this, just so I know I'm not making another rookie mistake?

when testing voltage on motor assembly, did not want to stick probes too close to anything hot, so tested the connectors near base of machine (not where they connect to the stator) THEN went back up and tried PWB motor output....nothing

sorry to be a pain (again)...but hey, I'm learning a lot (like beg a technician to come out of their house-call range)"
