LG top load WT1101CW
« on: March 07, 2018, 10:15:58 PM »

The washer performs the load sensing cycle fine. It gets into the wash cycle and has trouble. Shortly after getting into wash cycle and adding water, the tub will do 1 of 2 things...


It will turn CW for a few seconds then stop and turn CCW. The timer does not count down, there are no error codes, and it seems perfectly happy doing this forever. It will not stop this until you hit pause or power it off.


After adding water, the tub will turn slowly CW. Again, the behavior seems indefinite. No error codes, timer does not count down, and it will turn until you hit pause or power it off.

I've replaced the control board which did nothing. Still has exactly the same problem. I don't know what to do next.

Suspect Control board again or possible harness problem in sensing load

I would suspect the hall/speed sensor on the motor.  It could be that the board is looking for feed back.  Strictly a guess but speed sensors are not that expensive or hard to replace.  Check the connections too.
