Question about LG WM-2277HW Front Load Washer
When sarting a wash, water goes in for a few minutes and washer displays LE
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)
Disatisfied Customer (5 weeks out of warranty)

Tips for a great answer:
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.
