LG Washer LE Error

LG Front Load Washer gets the fabled "LE" Error. I drain and clean the pump filter regularly. The event seems to be random, but it is annoying, have to unplug the machine and wait before restarting.

Is there a real fix, or, is this a persistent LG screwup? replace sensor, worked for three dozen loads. Now replaced stator assembly, still not working.Now what?

    LG washers are worth not buying them. I have had thre LE signal come up three times and had to replace the sensor . Their service is a total joke. I would not ever recommend this piece of **** to anyone else. DO NOT EVER BUY LG.....Period!

    I have had the same problem. I called three different repair people and they all laughed at me for buying it. I took mine out and bought a Maytag front loader. It seems to work twice as good. Plus now that we see how one should work we think the LG we bought never worked right. Our clothes are cleaner. I also know that a friend of mine who works at BEST BUY told me they are getting a bunch of the LG LCD flatscreen TV's returned. So I am done with this. I am ********** at blowing 1200 bucks for a machine that never really worked. Never again with LG for me.

I replaced my hall effect sensor about two weeks ago and just hooked the machine back up a few dags ago. My wife ran about 5 loads through it and it shut down with the LE code again!!! I ordered the part from MCM Electronics and they are sending me a replacement part for free since the first one lasted only a day. Hopefully this is the last time I have to replace this part. It would be great if someone knew how to bench test one of those sensors so I could know for sure if my first one is really defective. I always have a hard time believing when a new part fails so soon.

Ck wiring harness from sensor all the way up to main control ck connector on control bd ..could be glitch in control causing it not to read motor operation especially if you have to unplug to get it to operate after all it's only a computer and unplugging allows it to reboot to factory specs

SOURCE: LG Washer LE Error

Hey mark1963, You nailed it right on the head. I have the LG WM2277Hb. Just recently gave me the LE code. In my case the washer drum would just make a hum sound and looked as if it was trying to spin but wouldn't. I found your solution on and decided to order the part and fix it myself. 6501KW2002A SENSOR ASSEMBLYSENSOR Very easy job to do. Took all of 20 mins to repair. Just wanted to say thanks. LG service is a joke. You saved me time and money.

I have an lg tromm front load washer. I am getting the IE fault. I have cleaned the inlet screens and drain filter. It gets stuck at the 13 min mark, seems like it just won't go to spin cycle.

LE code mean suds have built up. Using non he (High Efficiency) detergent or too much detergent will cause this error most front loaders use he detergent only there is a he swirl on the container
Let your washer sit idle or 45 minutes.Unplg washer as well
Plug in and turn on as left spin speed select no spin press Start/pause to start a drain only cycle. When cycle is complete remove load. Start a rinse•spin cycle to clean out residue.
If the sud were too much you may have to repeat

Wm1814cw le error cade

Make sure your drain hose is not bent - the code looks like a drain issue. It could be your drain pump. I had to take mine off and it was full of "gunk" and that can keep it from draining, causing that code. I have no affiliation with Home Depot, but they have a great web site showing how to get to the drain pump and how to take it off and clean it or probably just to replace it. Go in to the area to order the part and there should be an option to view a video on how to install it - not too hard, just follow directions. 48de78f6-d540-4f0d-8488-f3f5c589abed.jpg 1bc73971-d1f5-473d-8b8f-f05840bc9002.jpg

Samsung WF209ANW front load washer -- ND error code. I cleaned debris filter and all hoses, however it still will not drain. How can I tell if the drain pump needs to be replaced? Is there a diagnostic...

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

ND error in your Samsung Front Load washer indicates no drain issue. To start with check the drain hose for any clogs and try cleaning it, then check restriction in drain pump assembly or loose wire at the pump. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Drain error still after making sure the washer was level, making sure the drain filter was clean, the drain was clear and replacing the pump motor assembly

LE error? Don't buy a new sensor, don't call a repairman and don't scrap it. The fix is EASY!

Turn the drum 4-5 times by hand to resettle the load, move spin speed to highest, Quick Wash, Speed Wash. It shoudl work just fine. I've had to do this a few times over the last 5 years. Why everyone wants you to BUY parts is beyond me....maybe they need to make some $$ ?

"OE" error. Filter cleaned but makes terrible

You still have something caught in the drain line on the machine. Check the filter again and the lines coming from the tub to the pump, and from the pump to the waste line. Here is a link to LG's document on the "OE" error.

Le Error on front load machine

Hello,This a common problem for all front loaders. Your washer will not drain or work 'cause your outlet filter is clogged. Usually this small door is on the left side front below of your washer. Expect some water to come out when you open the door, etc. Clean out your filter and refit.....things should be fine.

LG front load washer OE error. cleaned filter need

The LG error code OE simply means "the pump is blocked". Presumably the water isn't being emptied properly. As with all error codes it is possible that there is a cause other than the exact description in the error code explanation but basically this error means as far as the washing machine is concerned it thinks the water isn't pumping out. A pump, or filter blockage is the most common cause but it could be caused by other faults such as a faulty pump, or even a blockage in the drain hose or somewhere else in the system etc.

LG themselves have some information on this error code..

Le error code on my LG washer.

On LG Washers the code LE is for motor overload protection.
Ensure that you are not overloading washer, make sure to clean pump by draining at little door at lower left corner(check manual for instructions), unplug for 30 minutes to reset, now try running cycle again. if it fails again something else is causing the motor to work to hard and will require a professional.

LG Washer LE Error

Solved LE error for my WM1832CW by replacing Hall Sensor. Bought part 5016501KW2002A for $Cdn 26 at Sears parts store. Thanks to TC at for instructions:
1 Open rear panel. Take 17mm nut off (it's the only one)
2 Pull off what looks like a goofy hubcap (it's held by magnets)
3 Unscrew the six 10mm bolts and gently lower the coils
4 Remove and replace the Hall Sensor (plastic comb looking thing)5 Plug in the sensor and re-install the coils and cover.
30 minutes for me.
Test spin cycle if desired by following chart on page 19 of service manual at
(note lower models skip step 10 (heater test).
Hall Sensor Part labelled as K351 in diagram on page 41 of service manual.
