Question about Washing Machines
Washing machine flashes LE after I started the load, Just after It worked fine on two previous lite loads.
LE is a locked motor error. If this happens often then 95% of the time this is just a bad hall
sensor (motor position sensor). A technician should be able to ohm out
the hall sensor to make sure. The part is relatively inexpensive and easy to replace.
This can also happen if the motor is overheating slightly from being overfilled (too many clothes) or if you do one load after the other and do not allow at least 10-15 minutes between loads for the motor to cool down. In this case the LE error will only happen occasionally.
Hope this helps, please rate my solution.

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.
