The 'LE' error message indicates the control board has detected that the motor is either not turning, or has locked up for some reason. Monitoring the motor is the job of the hall effect sensor board which constantly determines the direction and speed of the motor and feeds that information back to the control board. If there is a problem between what the motor should be doing and what the hall effect sensor says the motor is doing, the 'LE' will be displayed and the cycle will be stopped.

Drum starts to move then stops then Le appears and a slight hissing noise from direct drive motor. Looks like intemittant fault


The LE error message means "locked motor error" which means the control is not seeing the motor running.

The problem can be caused by a broken wire or loose connection but the most likely cause of the problem is a bad hall sensor.

The sensor can be accessed by removing the rear panel and the rotor assembly. See the image below for help with this. Remember to unplug the washer first.

Make sure the rotor and drum rotate. Anything blocking the tub rotation might trigger an LE code.

LE error codes on LG front loads are usually caused by the filter being clogged. Remove the small door on front left of machine and remove the filter Some water will come out . Clean the filter and reinsert it and see if that solves the problem

ERROR CODE LE ON LG FRONT LOAD WASHER


LE is a locked motor error. Not to worry as 95% of the time it is just a bad hall sensor (the motor position sensor). For your model the part number is 6501KW2002A.

Lg wd8074fhb will not rotate drum on was or rinse


LE=Load Error CE=Cycle Error
Unplug at socket for two hours will reset the Error Sensors. The sensors are there to prevent overheating of the motor and the possible risk of a fire.
Load Error is linked with too much weight in the drum. Cycle Error is limked with an uneven load.
If it happens again, unplug for two hours to reset the Error Sensors.
Hope this helps.
