If you see the SE error on the display of the LG washing machine, accompanied by an unexpected stop of the drum in the middle at the beginning or end of the program. As a result, it often does not spin on the spin cycle or when switching to rinsing. This DTC appears on direct drive models and those in which a belt drive is implemented and installed in the three-phase motor.
The SE error means that the washer motor is not working properly because, for some reason, there is no rotation of its shaft. That happens not only due to problems with the motor. Before calling the wizard, there are ways to try to handle it yourself.
Sometimes an error occurs due to a temporary software glitch. Fix it by restarting the washing machine. To do this, it is disconnected from the outlet and stays like this for 10-15 minutes, and then starts again from scratch. It is worth checking the wiring between the control board and the motor - it may have moved away.
If the SE error appears constantly, immediately after turning on, does not disappear after a reboot, then it indicates such malfunctions:
|Breaking||Causes||How to eliminate|
|The drum does not rotate even after trying to restart it.||Hall sensor broken.||Installing a new Hall sensor or resistor if it is burned out.|
|Washing does not start.||The engine has failed.||Engine replacement.|
|Failure of the control board.||Re-soldering tracks. If the processor is faulty, replace the board.|
|The error appears and disappears.||Damaged wiring/contacts.||Repair or replacement of wiring.|
