motor is not
Hall Sensor fault
a locked hall sensor generally requires replacing the sensor, however on the p[art breakdown for this unit it is listed as part of the motor assy and even that is not clear enough to give you a definitive answer, it lists for over $200 so im not even comfortable telling you " just replace the motor without first running though moore diagnostic tests first.although placement of the tech document is also unclear to me, there is one located within the machine , usually taped to inside wall( for tech to read and daig), pretty descriptive as to how to test certain components.oretty hard ti walk you through step-by-step on this forum.sorry cant be of more help then this

Thank you for your post, friend!
I understand that your Electrolux washer is displaying an "E3" error code while it is spinning. However, it appears "E3" is an invalid error code. It is possible that the error code is missing characters? I suggest resetting your washer. You can do this by flipping the household circuit breaker for roughly ten minutes. If resetting the power does not correct the issue, and your washer continues to display "E3" I would recommend contacting a professional to come and properly diagnose your appliance. -Matt
