LG WM2101HW 4.0 cu.ft. Washer - Answered Questions & Fixed issues

Have the machine's rotor assembly and door latch checked out as these two are the most common causes for no spinning.
If the machine has been making a loud noise when it was still spinning, the tub bearing could be at fault.

Had the same problem and it was exactly as rbozzell said. The main black drain hose in the bottom developed a small hole.

Is it the drum that is not moving? or actually the motor? Possibly it could be the belt from the motors rotor going around the drum , the one with the clothes inside it! that has fallen off or is broken?

A hall sensor is a magnetic pickup sensor that picks up magnetic pulses caused by a rotor that is bolted to the spinner shaft in back of unit. remove back access panel and motor rotor is facing you now. take bolt off of rotor and slide off. you should be able to see hall sensor under stator. remove bolts on stator to access hall sensor.

the sponge is probably making it's way to the bottom of the machine as we speak. disconnect the power, and lean it back wards. the sponge should be on the ground there. otherwise pulling it out from the wall and removing the back panel should reveal it's location.

Press "end of cycle" for 3 seconds or till the flashing goes off . Plug off the wall. Code can be an indication of several issues. The most common cause is over sudsing in the machine. Overloading the wash with too much laundry may also cause the LE error code. Lastly, a breakdown in the signal between the microprocessor and the motor may cause that error code. This can occur if there is a loose wire, see that all wires are tightened..........

I would be leaning more in the direction of the door lock mechanism rather than the hall sensor as someone else posted. The hall sensor gives a very specific error code when it goes bad. Put the unit into a spin only cycle and verify that the door is locking. To do this power up the machine and only press spin speed and the start. It is also possible that it is a problem with any one of the three control boards that are on the unit but again, these normally present with very specific error codes. If the door is not locking, or even if it is but the switch isn't sending the signal back to the main control saying that it is locked then all it would do is drain and then spin 1/3 turns either way inside the tub until time runs out.

serial number would be three numbers, followed by at least the letters KW, then possibly two more letters and several more numbers.

OE means your machine has failed to drain within 10 minutes. There are a few posibilities. Your drain hose could be kinked or clogged causing the machine not to drain. Try using a shop vac to remove the water from the end of the drain hose. If a shop vac won't **** out the water either, you have a clog somewhere ing the drain hose, of the hose from the tub to the pump. If it will drain the water you need a new pump. If there is no water in the machine then the problem is either the pressure switch, the hose going to the pressure switch, of the control board. The pressure switch is on the back by the control board. You will see a black rubber hose going attached to it. Remove it and see if you can blow through it. If you cant it is clogged somewhere. If it is not clogged then the most likely cause is your pressure switch and next the control board.

same problem. LG stated I am using too much soap. Cant be because it still does it with no soap. Also have issues with spinning on bed comforter and also drum will not drain. I can wring out a 16oz of water from a cotton shirt sitting in the bottom of drum when completed. Floor is flooded and I am **********. Bought in April 2010 and have had 4 techs out to look at it, but there is no problem. Biggest waste of 600 I ever spent.

I just called LG and they said for this model WM2101HW the bleach will only dispense from the soap dispenser during the tub clean cycle

This is actually pretty normal for newer LG front loaders. They've done a lot of work to isolate the vibration and noise from the spin cycle, but the higher RPM's have countered those improvements. Unless the manufacturer/technician can determine that something is actually wrong, you're probably going to need to install an anti-vibration pad under the washer pedistal to absorb most of the noise. It is very likely that the subfloor is actually amplifying the vibration into the "rocket" noise that you are hearing. Try installing Silent Feet anti-vibration pads or similar to prevent this amplification of the noise and vibration.

Try rotating the drum by hand and see if you can feel a 'hard spot' If your machine is new you should have a warranty. If so, ring the service line and ask a consultant about the noise. The may even be able to listen via the phone and advise you...Good luck .....Nomess

Their is no mention of a problem in anything I have come across so far that indicates their would be a problem with using any type of bleach.
As long as it is placed in the correct dispensing tray and the correct amount.
