Are you talking about one of the 7or 8 screws/bolts that hold the stator in place/ and one of them cannot be tightened to stay tight/

SOURCE: Maytag Top Load Washer # MAV6057AWW

I have the maytag MAV6057AWW. I had the same problem and today i am discovering that others are having the same problem i was. It first started with the no agitation after the rinse cycle. I emptied out the water and clothes etc. I lifted it, took it apart practically and discovered all was ok. I couldnt figure it out because after putting it back together it worked properly. After a few days it didnt agitate for the wash cycle after filling up with water. I was confused. But then I got pissed of and I slammed the lid shut and it began to work.

It was the switch. I havent replaced the switch, but i have learned to cope with the fact that i have to open and close the lid a 2 or 3 times times before it goes into the cycle.

When it doesn't agitate, its not a mechanical problem, but a safety switch that is failing to close. So either replace your switch or play with the lid a bit.

Solution. Unplug the machine. Hold the power button for 10 seconds. Plug back in. Push the power button and the washer should turn on. Walk away leaving the machine on. When I did this, I came back to find the drum light off and machine would start on command now. Good luck.

Washer makes a grinding noise and barely, if any spins left then right. Is it the motor, belt, or bearings. Was working just fine earlier today. Do I get this fixed or buy again as this model LG is not...

I just repaired the same model washer. This washer has a direct drive stepping motor attached to a spline shaft on the rear of the drum. The hub on the rotor is made from fiberglass reinforced polyester plastic. The plastic spline socket on the hub fails. In my case, it spun free of the drum and overloaded the main board. I went to check on the load in the washer and found a completely dead control board and a soaking wet load inside. This machine is repair friendly and for the most part, durable.

Stop using it to prevent additional damage. If you are up to troubleshooting and repairing it yourself, it may only need a rotor. The repair requires a Philips screwdriver, 19mm and 10mm sockets on a 3/8" ratchet with 2" extension. A second pair of hands will be needed to hold the drum while you install the new rotor.

When you remove the rotor, inspect the inside surface of the magnets for scuffing. If there is any evidence of the magnets contacting the stator, its a good idea to remove the stator to inspect it for damage. Its possible for the rotor to scrape at the mounting points of the RPS and damage it. If the stator shows wear from contact with the rotor, replace it along with the RPS.
Good Luck!

The washer makes a odd noise and tries to rotate the drum during the filling, wash and spin stages. The drum does not turn, the motor sounds like it is running, the pump runs, it fills with water, just no...

It is so common that the washing machine can make terrible noise in many ways and is a common fault. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that machine is vibrating when it is running then the motor /drum suspension has to be inspected. Since these fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for the noise with a good inspection lamp. If the belt is worn out or is loose or damaged then it will not turn the drum but make noise. so this can be an issue in your case. Manually turn the motor and drum and listen for the noise, if so the motor bearings, the drum agitator shaft and fittings must be checked. Also the suspensions which include the shock absorbers and springs, the body clamps must be checked to be in correct alignment and not changed in position. Tightening of the mounting is also very important. Finally in most cases a drop of OIL or smear of grease on the moving parts cane solve most issues.

My wm0642hw front loading washer drum will not spin. I can hear the motor running and the gears trying to engage but mostly it suond like it is just grinding the gears. adjusting the load does not help....

Several answers here are correct (work out nylon gear teeth on rotor which meshes with the spyder assembly.)

But here's a tip to help you get through a few more loads until your new rotor arrives. When I took the bolt off my washer, I noticed that it wasn't on that tight. Either it shook lose (although they had applied blue Loctite) or it hadn't been fully tightened at the factory.

A loose bolt will cause the rotor gear to wear out much faster because of the play between the rotor and spyder.

Anyway, I tightened up the bolt and the washer is now running fine. Of course, it will not hold in the long run, but at least my wife can get a few loads done until the new rotor part arrives!

Try it!

I have an LG Tromm washer. I start it up it start


LE code stands for locked motor error. When this error code appears in your front load washer it indicates a fault in the motor unit.

1 . Check the connections to the Coil/Stator at the rear of the unit possibly it should be something like a broken wire.

2 . Coil/Stator Assembly will be defective preventing the drive to operate.You should go for a replacement of that assembly.

Thank you !!

Our LG Tromm Washer is struggling to spin. Humming sound in the beginning and then displays LE on the panel. Heard it may be the Stator Sensor/Part. Any Advise please!!!

Definitely the Stator/Sensor/Hall switch. Go to and order part number 6501KW2002A (if your machine is model number WM2277HW). Remove rear panel, remove three retaining screws for sensor wires at left bottom of drum, remove drum outer retainer bolt in center, stator assembly is now exposed. Remove bolts holding stator assembly (I think there were six) and replace switch assembly by lightly prying tab locks off of stator. Press on new switch and reassemble...
