Question about LG Washing Machines

1 Answer

My LG WT H560 comes up with LE and the drum is not rotating? What does this mean?

Drum is not spinning when filling with water and the jet spray function is also not working. Worked occasionally at first but now it keeps coming up with this error! This is our second new machine in less than a year, the first one would not drain the water out.

SOURCE: Bosch WFL2450 Washing Machine wont spin cycle

Hi there, this problem sounds as though the carbon brushes are needing replaced or infact just needing to be cleaned of dust or dirt. Its very common for the brushes to be covered in dust and fibres. Im not sure where the brushes will be on this model but I hope this helps you in someway.

SOURCE: LG front load machine with LE code and no spin

LE is a locked motor error. Not to worry as 95% of the time this is just a bad hall sensor (motor position sensor). It is very easy for a technician to replace and the cost is very small.

Hope this helps, please rate my solution.

SOURCE: My LG WM2077CW washer has decided not to drain or spin, w/gives?

First try unplugging the machine for a few minutes and then retry a cycle. If you still get the LE error:

The Hall sensor (part number 6501KW2001A) has failed. The hall sensor is rather easy to replace, and is covered by a seven year part warranty (in the US). Take the back cover off. Take the big nut off and remove the motor rotor. Remove the bolts holding the motor windings. Remove the electric plug on the sensor and unclip it from the motor winding. Snap new sensor on and reassemble. Usually takes under a half hour. On a difficulty scale of 1 - 10, it might rate a 4. This should be a Fix-Ya for your machine, and at basically no cost!
In the US, find a service provider using your zip code at http://us.lgservice.com/index_b2c.jsp or call LG at 800-243-0000

Error code LE what does it mean


The LE error indicates that the Controller is having trouble communicating with the motor.

The most common cause for this is if something gets wedged in and the drum can't turn freely. Try turning it by hand to make sure it is free. The next most common cause is if someone spins the drum moderately fast with the washer turned off. I.e. if you give it a spin to make sure their isn't a sock stuck to the drum.. To fix this, unplug the machine and turn the drum counterclockwise 4 full rotations followed by 4 rotations clockwise at low speed. Plug it back in and see if that fixes it.

If that's not it, then there is a sensor called the Hall Sensor that could be the problem. I've never had to replace one of these and can't comment further.

What does the LE flashing mean? Water won't drain out of washer.


LE means that the motor sensor has failed and needs a technician to come out and repair the unit. To remove the water, turn on the unit, press the spin speed button once and press start. It will drain the water out and spin the drum.

I START MY WASHER AND IT TELLS ME THERE IS A LE ERROR. IT LOOKS LIKE THE DRUM IS NOT SPINNING, JUST SLIGHT MOVEMENT. BY HAND I CAN ROTATE THE DRUM. ????


LE stands for locked motor error..
1 . check the connections to the Coil/Stator at the rear of the unit possible broken wire.
2 . Coil/Stator Assembly is defective hence no drive

My 4 year old high efficiency front load washer set code "LE" (Overload in Motor). I unplugged and plugged back in and set to quick rinse and spin. Washer started adding water and trying to balance itself....


LE
LOCKED MOTOR ERROR


• The connector (3-pin, male, white) in the MOTOR HARNESS is not connected to the connector (3-pin, female, white) of STATOR ASSEMBLY. • The electric contact between the connectors (3-pin, male, white) in the MOTOR HARNESS and 4-pin, female, white connector in the MAIN PWB ASSEMBLY is bad or unstable. • The MOTOR HARNESS between the STATOR ASSEMBLY and MAIN PWB ASSEMBLY is cut (open circuited). • The hall sensor is out of order/defective.

LE error code on LG washing machine Model WT-R801, goes through all cycles, then when supposed to spin it comes up with this error, even on a small load.


Looking at several LG Washer service manuals, the error code LE ( Lock Error) could be any one of several things: a 3 pin connector in the wire harness going to the motor, It could also be the harness itself between the Motor and Circuit Board Controller ( PWB) assembly has been damaged or cut..or the hall sensor used to detect drum speed while it rotates may be defective or the main control board ( PWB) "printed wire board " is defective. Lots to pick from but these are the likely candidates... hope this helps

LG 2277 Spinning intermittently "growling"


Followup: (of techwannabe)
After researching a bit further it was worth the investment to replace the sensor assembly and see if this would fix the issue. Viola! runs like a champ. The part was located locally for a mere $ 25.00 and with a few tools, strength of a gorilla to move the machine I repaired it. Yes a mother of four can complete the job! The unit works beautifully.........................
