was recently given this front load washer-giver said it gives E3 code-no tach signal from motor-has BLDC direct drive motor-set machine to spin and it did spin at a lowish RPM without displaying error code.After machine thaws enough for a proper "wet"run will se what happens :)BTW bearings are good with good drum runnout.Motor wiring /plugs is the first place I will look if fault code comes up.Iam not real keen on Korean imports,but this one will get 2nd life with someone else if an easy fix :)

i think i found the problem...

...wiring harness-tried a wet run and wash rotation was erratic and jerky,eventually set E3 code and when set to spin did rotate at lower speed but would hiccup and jerk when harness tugged :) Harness placement is bad design on this machine IMO-comes up off the base straight up to the outer with plenty of flexing over a short distance-will correct that situation when harness repair done:)

got around to completing the wiring harness repair-2 wires were broken in the black-sheathed cable from rotor position sensor-operation back to normal after repair.My little 24" GE was either built or designed by Samsung as many parts and details are the same between the two machines.
