LE Error?? My washer/dryer unit abruptly stopped working yesterday, 2 days after the warranty ended. An "FE" is being displayed, and wet clothes are locked inside of the machine. No problems are apparent. I've unplugged and replugged the machine, to no avail. What should I do, please? Thanks!

Re: LE Error??

Your handbook should say what "fe" (a fault code) is. it may be not draining. have you checked the filter? on many machines the door can not be opened if water is still inside. try putting the drain hose at floor level into a bucket. otherwise undo the filter and let the water out that way - you may have water everywhere!!

Based on my experience, the same thing happens to me as you have mentioned that it happens every end of a cycle. I doubt if it was a fan error or a frequency error. for me, its just a simple overload for the autodrying. for example on my model. the manual says autodrying cotton-cupboard dry must be max 3 kg. since you cannot measure your wet clothes and it sometimes exceed the 3kg autodrying, that is when the FE comes out. but when i remove some clothes or spin the laundry again and put it into drying, everything works fine. when i use the machine with minimal clothes say 2kg dry, the whole cycle up to drying work fine without FE errors.

So i believe its just an error for drying overload. also the manual says nothing about FE nor Error code for drying overload.

Hope this help.

My clothes were in the washer and when I went down to check there was an error code. LE The clothes were still wet, and appeared to not have gone through the rinse cycle.

The LE is caused by over sudsing OR clothing trapped between the tubs. The LE: hall sensor shorted/destroyed from sudslock or clothes between tub. Correct the issue and party on.

LG errors:
IE: Water level (246) was not reached in 8 minutes
UE: Imbalance: Load too, small too large
OE: Drain problem took longer than 10 minutes to drain
FE: Overflow issue drain pump running to comp
PE: pressure sensor (sensor out)
dE: door error. open door. switch is out
LE (with a a slash in the
middle of L. Upside down F) Thermistor out
CE: Over amping Too much soap wrong soap
LE: hall sensor shorted/destroyed from sudslock
bE: Ball sensor loose connection/out of order
EE: eeprom out test mode only
PF: power failure momentary interuption of shocktricity

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 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.

Check your display panel again- there is no such error code for the LG WD-3245RHD. You can have: "dE", "tE", "FE", "PE", "CE", "LE", or "dHE" but there is no "D5" error code.

Lg wd-3243rhd front load washer and dryer combo "le" error message

LE error code means the motor sensor has failed.  The motor sensor is located in the back of unit inside the motor.  You will need to order a replacement motor sensor from LG.  You will need a 17 mm and 10 mm socket tools to do this job.

check the pump filter and if necessary clean it up.
if you stop the programme and hold the start/ pause button for 3-5 sec the programme will cancelled and the drain will work.
if you hear a slow noise from the pump it may be blocked with external objects from your clouthes pocket,

so you need to contact a repairman.

LE code

LE error is a locked rotor you need to have your hall sensor on the stator or better yet just have the whole stator replaced which comes with the sensor on it (P.S. the stator is part of the motor and has a 5 year warranty)
