Take tray back out. Take all the components apart and clean all the tubes. Capillary action will not work with residue left on the parts.

Probably only thru a dealer or repair service.

It is a door lock error caused by bad door lock switch or if your door is very hard to swing closed because the hinge is corroded, then the hinge could be causing the door lock to error.

Short answer: The post+images by “chem-prof” on Jan 10, 2008 and the post with part instruction by “wolfster” on Dec 04, 2007 solved the problem!!! You guys are the best!!!

Long answer: We purchased the LG WM2277HW three and a half years ago. We have been VERY happy with the results. Last Thursday we got the LE error code after placing a single sofa cover in for a quick cycle. I’m not sure if this is what caused the part to go bad or it’s just the fact that this part might have a “time limit” so LG can make more money on service… (sounds like my Volvo!!!). Anyways, after freaking out for five very long minutes, I Googled the phrase “LG Tromm WM2277HW will not spin” and got directly to this page (WAHOO, FixYa.com!!! You guys are great too!!!). Read the instructions posted by “chem-prof” and “wolfster”. Following “wolfster” I went to download the user manual and exploded diagram from, then I went to http://www.mcminone.com/ and typed “P/N 6501KW2002A” in the search. Got the “sensor assembly” part for $17.50 + $22.50 (2nd day air UPS). Make sure to note “Please send me a UPS tracking info” in the comments field. Got the UPS tracing e-mail from mcminone.com and waited…. Tuesday was my delivery day (Ohio to Florida). On 5pm got the part by UPS. At 5:15pm it was all assembled and first cycle was started to run!!! Now it’s my 3rd cycle and the baby LG WM2277HW is spinning like usual!!!
OK, now let me tell you, the images by chem-prof are great, but I found that if you take the three screws that attach the electric cords to the drambase it will actually make your life easier and it you will not need to disconnect one of the cords/plug, only the small one that attaches to the “sensor assembly”. See my image for the process:
A. Take off the 4 screws for the metal covering
B. Take center large screw (#2 on my list, it was a mistake…), this will not be as easy unless you have someone else to hold the dram from the front… but it’s doable after all, I did it!
C. Take off the magnets covering, this may require some shifting left and right, while pulling to the back (placing it back is not that easy, indeed watch your fingers when placing it back!)
D. Disconnect the cords attachment screws (#1 on my list)
E. Take the 6 screws of the motor (looks like a circle with orange cords around it!) (#3) and place the motor on a towel on the floor
F. Take off the plastic part (“sensor assembly”) from the motor
G. Place the new plastic part (“sensor assembly”) on the motor
-- Redo steps E to A backwards… voualla! You’re done!
H. Take your wife and the kids to a fancy restaurant for all the $$$ you saved!

Your model has a button labeled beeper. Put that on high.

Not motor. Most likely one of these: bad bearing or seal, worn shock absorbers, broken spider(drum support to spindle)

LG WM-2277HW... | Answered on Jun 19, 2017

It is not uncommon for items that get loose in the washer (paper clips, coins, etc.) to slip underneath the "paddles" and then make noise as the drum turns. While an annoyance, it is not anything to be overly concerned about. Eventually the item(s) will come back out.

send it all back and get a new one.tell your tech that you only need the front panel that goes to your washer,if they send something else that needs more parts to work,DO NOT PAY FOR ANYTHING,IT IS A SCAM,notify your techs boss

Great advice. I used a portion of you plan. Pulled off the top, but since the softener cup is on the right, I only uncliped the 3 clips on that side of the assembly. With those loose, I could pry gently up on the back portion of the assembly lid, and the drawer pulled out.

I also see no need for the cover, other than a measuring device. So removed the screws at the front, pushed the assembly back into the washer, and unclipped the rest of the lid. Once the lid of the tray assembly was off, it was easy to remove the softener cover. The only challenging part was getting the re-closed assembly to go back into the cut-out in the face metal. I got caught a couple times, but getting my hand up under the assemble allowed be to push evenly up on both sides as I pushed it forward into place.

Now the door works fine again. Seems to be a significant design flaw by LG.

Hope the helps other.

Does spin only work well?

LG WM-2277HW... | Answered on Apr 12, 2017

I would replace the thermistor. $6 part. Worth a try. Are you sure the error is not "tE" instead of "LE"?

At 14+ appliance years of age, it doesn't make economic sense to repair it.

The impeller may have come off the pump motor shaft. Generally, you will notice a louder sound when the pump runs if this happened.
Unplug the machine. Remove the filter recess by removing the one screw inside and using a putty knife at the left and / or right edge and popping it out. Pull the machine out about 18 inches and tip it back, resting it against the wall. Remove two more screws behind where the recess was holding the pump housing on. Reach under the machine and remove pump. There is a tab to depress under the pump housing to release it from the base. The pump motor is held onto the housing by three screws. Remove them and inspect the impeller to see if it has come off the shaft. If it has, pushing it back on will not solve the problem, as it will come off again. Install new pump motor and reassemble. Clean washer tub with the longest, hottest cycle and three Ah-fresh tablets, Whirlaway hot tub cleaner, Smellywasher cleaner (smellywashercleaner.com) or Tide washer cleaner. Repeat. From now on, use only 1 tablespoon of HE laundry detergent per load (1/2 T if 2X concentrate) and only 1 teaspoon of fabric softener per load if you use it. (these machines use very little water, and thus require reduced amounts of additives to work properly)

is there visible water in the washer if so its not draining and wont spin until it does. Check the pump clean out for a clog. If the water is in the tub and the cleanout screen is clear listen to the pump run is it just humming like its jammed or bad? or can you hear the pump run like it should? Does the door lock? It has to or it will not spin. Is the basket free try spinning the basket by hand. Or does it look like its trying to spin but slipping the could be a bad rotor in the back they sometimes strip out as they have plastic gearing and the shaft for the basket is steel and will just break off all the tiny plastic teeth on the rotor. It back of the unit is a panel 2 to 4 scews take that off now you see a round wheel like thing with 1 nut on it remove the nut pull off the rotor and look in it you will see the gear teeth in the center hole they may be there or they may be missing.
