Error code le for tromm washer


TWhen you receive the LE error code, unplug the machine for approximately 15 - 20
minutes. This will reset the microprocessor.

The LE error code can be an indication of several different issues.

The most common cause is over-sudsing in the machine. Many times owners
experiencing the LE error code are using regular detergent. It is recommended to
use a high efficiency or low sudsing detergent. Many of the leading detergent
manufacturers have a high-efficiency (HE) selection. The HE detergents are
designed for lower suds levels and enhanced cleaning performance in
front-loading washers.

Overloading the wash with too much laundry may also cause the LE error code. A
good rule is to load the washer until the clothes in the drum are no more than
three-fourths of the way up the window of the door. This will allow them
sufficient room for tumbling. The clothing having sufficient room to tumble is
more important than either the weight or the number of items in the washer. It
is the tumbling action that provides the washing effect.

Lastly, a breakdown in the signal between the microprocessor and the motor may
cause the error code. This can occur if there is a loose wire, dislodged ball
sensor, or if the shipping bolts are removed prior to situating the washer. . In
this case, a servicer would need to take a look at the unit. In this case, you
will need a service center to look at your unit. For service assistance, please
visit our website at us.lgservice.com Click on "Service Center". Enter your
zipcode and product type. Click search.

In the event that you cannot find a service center, please call 1-800-243-0000
for assistance. There, an agent will be able to provide you with an Authorized
LG Service Center in your area.

Please have your model and serial number available along with your zip code when
you call. If you have a customer service issue, please let the agent know and
they will set up a customer service file for you. If your unit is under the
factory warranty, your purchase receipt will validate the warranty.

Business hours are 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. too many soap suds.

LG error code is 0E...what would be the problem


Washing machine has an LE error code --> Is this a new installation?
In new installations, this error can sometimes present because of a miscommunication between the control panel and the wash motor. In this instance, the washer simply needs to be reset.
Step 1: Unplug the washing machine.
Step 2: While the washer remains unplugged, press and hold the [Start/Pause] button on the front panel for 5 seconds.
Step 3: Plug the unit back in, and run a rinse and spin cycle to test if the LE code is cleared.
Has a large load size been used with a gentle wash setting?
Gentle wash cycles such as Perm Press, Delicates, Hand Wash, and Wool/Silk should only be used for smaller loads. Because the cycles are more gentle while tumbling and spinning, too many items in the drum can register as an issue with the motor. In this instance reset the unit and run a test rinse and spin cycle.

Has the washer been overloaded?
Single bulky items or large loads can add extra weight to the drum and place stress on the motor. Remove some of the clothing and restart. If the issue is still present after a few items have been removed, unplug the washer for 30 minutes to allow the motor to cool and then restart the cycle.

Are there soap suds visible in the drum?
Over-sudsing is the main cause of LE error codes. Using non-HE (high efficiency) detergents or too much detergent will cause stress on the motor. In addition, detergent residue can also cause leaking and odor. Follow these steps to resolved an LE error code caused by over-sudsing.
Step 1: Unplug the washer and allow the unit to sit for 30 minutes to give the suds time to dissolve.
Step 2: Plug the washer back in and press [Power] to turn on the washer.
Step 3: Do not choose a washing cycle. Press the [Spin Speed] key until "No Spin" is selected.
Step 4: Press [Start/Pause] to begin a drain only cycle.
Step 5: After the drain only cycle has completed, remove the clothing items from the machine. Turn the power back on and select [Rinse and Spin] and then press [Start/Pause]. This will remove excess soap suds and light residue from the drum. Repeat this step until no visible suds are in the drum of the washer.

Washer


Greetings jannd,

The message "LE" can indicate that the thermal overload protection circuit in the motor has been tripped. The remedy for this can be to allow the washer to stand for 30 minutes to allow the motor to cool, then restart the cycle. If the LE error code still appears, unplug the washer and call for service. Keep in mind that this unit carries a 7 year warranty on the motor also.

I hope this helps!
Best regards,

Dorothy

LG front washer keeps getting "LE" error. I cleaned out the filter on bottom front left side, but the machine still doesn't spin when it's on. It hand spins when I have the door open, otherwise that's it....


Regarding the LE EEROR CODE.... This code is also caused by having a residue on the sensors in your unit. You have to use a HE liqud detergent.If you use fabric softner use half of the recommended amount and dilute if it is concentrated. Once a month (for a family of four) put 3 cups of white distilled vineager directly into the drum and select sanitary cycle or the hottest cycle you can. This prevents residue from forming in your unit and causing the LE ERROR CODE.

The spinning may be a burnt out motor, you may have to get a repairman on that, I can't be sure on that but I hope this helps solve your problem
