Question about LG TROMM WM2688H 4.0 cu.ft. Front Loading SteamWasher
I have an LG Tromm WM2277HW throwing le code, I have replaced the Stator, the motor pump, the sensor assembly, checked the wiring for any breaks and made sure contact is good on all points with a meter.
I have done everything I can find on any board and still am getting the error. I have had five or six techs look at the thing, tell me to fix something or they try something and I still get the error.
I am at wits end here, I have run afresh through the thing but after every repair all I get is one maybe two loads max and the thing kicks out the same error.
I even checked to make sure the fault code was correct and that no lights were out on the panel. I have run the QC cycle and get the error as soon as the drum tries to spin.
I took my wet vac and sucked out the main drain tube ( the one that slips into the drain) it seems to be working properly now . ps take out the filter in the shop vac they don't like water. hope it helps

I shouldn't even respond to this if you have had 5 or 6 tech look at it because I don't want a Thanks for Trying, but it sounds like you are at the end of your rope. The pump motor should not have anything to do with the problem. If you did not have anything in the tub, including suds, doing the QC test, and you have checked and replaced all you have said, the only thing left is the main PCB part number 6871ER1078T

Tips for a great answer:
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 washer 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 their 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 sesor 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.
