LG washer WT4870cw with UE error
« on: September 07, 2016, 07:28:38 AM »

Have an LG washer that is throwing the off balance code repeatedly, tub supports and the usual check out. I thought I remembered a service bulletin for this but cant locate it, any help with tech documents or suggestions would be appreciated.

wow, I guess one day we will have to go to LG school, to work on them.

Looks like this is listed as warranty work, so if we aint LG techs, can customer get this covered.

I have some HOME work to do.
About the icons: The beer is tip link, if a tech saves ya some money buy em a 6 pack(diet coke in my case) . The small green square=personal message.

Update thread,
Had a gentlemen pm a question on this. This particular unit was sporadic with the UE error and after returning with a bit more time I had found that the clutch band part#MCJ61941202 was cracked and not always releasing. Like I said that is the fix for this particular machine.
