I have exactly the same problem. The motor is covered by a 3 year warranty. You'll have to pay for labour. I will not buy any LG product in the future. Its junk.
Technician said the motor requires replacing. I believe its a computer module error. Some people were advised to unplug the machine for 2 hours and allow the computer to reboot! This does not sound like a mechanical issue. Whatever it is the machine is poorly developed and completely overpriced. Customer service is non-existent. Website is cumbersome and unhelpful. looks like a money grab to me by Lucky Goldstar (yes, LG is the new name for Goldstar, a low end appliance manufacturer of the past)

Le error sensor WM 2277 HS problem and solution please


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

LE error in your LG front load washer is displayed when either the motor is not working or the control board thinks that the motor is locked up. A Hall Effect sensor is used in these washers which monitors the speed and direction of the motor and then forwards this information to the control board. Hope you understand by now that this LE error is displayed when there is an issue with the motor or when the Hall Effect sensor sends wrong signal to the control. Conclusion is you'll have to check both motor and hall sensor and replace the part# that is bad, usually I have seen the sensor going bad. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

I am getting a FE erroe on my LG WM-2277 HW Washer? What Part do I need?


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. FE is Overflow error which means that the water is overflowing and the water level frequency is over 213. When FE error is displayed the drain pump operates to drain the water automatically. To resolve this issue you’ll have to check the water inlet valve and pressure sensor which can sense the water level in the tub, if any of this goes bad overflow occurs. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

LG WM-2077C CODE LE


LE stands for locked motor error. Sometimes just unplugging it for about 10 minutes will fix it, but if not you will probably have to replace the motor position sensor(hall sensor) or the motor.

Lg washer 2277, spin cycle


The humming noise is probably the drain pump working to remove the water out of the tub.  It is normal.

LE Code appears again


Hi LisaJ1165,
I have a 2277 and had the same problem. A tech came out and couldn't find anything wrong. He suggested that I cut down on the soap (HE) and use only about 1 tablespoon. Also said that you shouldn't see any suds. Supposedly, too many suds does something to the sensor. So far, it's working. Please note that I was not overfilling the soap dispenser in the first place. Hope this helps.

LG 2277 Spinning intermittently "growling"


Followup: (of techwannabe)
After researching a bit further it was worth the investment to replace the sensor assembly and see if this would fix the issue. Viola! runs like a champ. The part was located locally for a mere $ 25.00 and with a few tools, strength of a gorilla to move the machine I repaired it. Yes a mother of four can complete the job! The unit works beautifully.........................
