LG front load Direct Drive F1479FDS. No error code but won’t even complete a small load. Drum rocks back and forth. See video for the typical behaviour. I assumed it was the hall sensor but I’m not seeing any error codes. Thoughts anyone?

With no load it completes any wash cycle just fine. Drains and spins.

It’s as soon as you add a load of any note it does this endlessly. Not just as it’s about to spin but right at the start of the washing cycle too.

With no load the operation is smooth.
If you rotate the drum with your hand while applying load the rotation is also smooth.

Hi Phil,

We don't know anything about European appliances here in the USA.

Try UK Whitegoods.
