No spin, or lite spin try these:



Using a multi meter check for continuity the door switch, which when bad may not allow agitation or spin. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically.



Check the clutch, brake assembly and transmission, one way to check for slipping is to get under the machine after a spin cycle ( this is if u get a lil spin but not much leaving clothes still wet) mix in a spray bottle a lil water and some dish detergent, then spray it on the clutch assembly ( the metal round pc. Connected to the tranny) if it sizzles and steams up then u know its bad and slipping. Another way to check clutch if u get no spin at all? Is to take it out and use ur hand to try and turn the inner spring assembly pushing it around the inside? If its very easy, it BAD should be hard to push by hand.



Or try the hand test:



If no hammering sound has ever been heard out of this machine, one of the unofficial tests we professional appliantologists will do in the field is called the Hand Test. WARNING:This test is not sanctioned by Whirlpool Corporation; it involves bypassing safety equipment and then putting your hand on and near rotating machinery which could result in injury, dismemberment, disfigurement, disembowelment, mangling, hideous screaming, and a bloody death. Proceed at your own risk! Have a nice day.



- put the timer on a spin cycle and open the lid- grab the inner basket with maybe 30% to 40% of your hand strength with your left hand

- turn on the machine and bypass the lid switch by depressing the lid switch with a key until the machine begins to spin

- if the clutch is engaging properly, the basket should immediately begin to spin and slip through your hand

- if it takes very little force to stop the tub from spinning, the clutch needs to be replaced.



Next check the motor coupler which engages the tub and tranny to the motor. ( if its bad u usually get no wash or spin or very little of either)



Next if belt driven check for a loose, worn or broken belt. And on some models there is no clutch but rather what is called a splutch. And a MODE shifter. These can go bad and effect the spin cycle.



On some front load models u may need to check the STATOR assembly.

The stator is essentially one half of a motor, it interacts with the tub by creating a strong electro-magnet. If the stator burns out the washer won't spin or agitate. Check the stator for continuity. This part is often misdiagnosed.



Sometimes a no spin machine can be due to a plugged waterpump hose or obstructed water pump propeller. Check these by eye and hand. And in some models check with a meter for continuity and voltage.



next step is toremove the cabinetand jumper the lid switch harness (tan to gray). Put the unit in spin and watch the shiny metal clutch disc that is on top of the transmission where the shaft comes out. If the machine starts and runs in spin, check to see if the disc is spinning. If it is, then the problem isnot in the gearcase- look for trouble in theclutch,basket driveor the tub drive block



If, on the other hand, the disc is NOT spinning, check for a problem withthe motor drive coupleror one of its retainers. This washer doesn't have a belt. Instead, the motor is directly coupled to the gearcase by a drive coupler; that's why it's called a direct drive washer.

SOURCE: Error code LE on LG Wm1815cs

Error OE appears after about 10 minutes into a cycle. "OE" in the manual says filter clogged....we have checked & cleaned all of the lines/filter. Now we hear a light humming instead and the washer isn't doing anything...

SOURCE: LG WM2077CW LE Error, won't spin

It sounds like the motor sensor has failed and needs to be replaced.  Yes a DYI can do it.  The sensor is in the back.
Remove the back cover.
Use a 17mm socket to remove the center bolt holding the rotor.  Remove the rotor by pulling it straight out.  It will be hard but keep pulling.
Now use a 10mm socket to remove the 6 bolts holding the stator assembly.  Carefully remove the stator and turn it around to locate two connectors.  The 5 wire connector is the motor sensor.  Replace it and reinstall and it should work fine.

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.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

If your washer is an LG (unfortunately you have not said) on most 'LE' stands for 'Lock Error'. If so there is likely to be a problem with either the door solenoid/lock or the 'door closed' sensor becoming apparent with the extra movement of spinning, requiring a service engineer's attention I suggest. Sorry ;-0(

If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!

LE - overload in motor displayed


LE is error code for hall sensor, replace sensor

Sep 07, 2010 | LG WM1815CS Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Getting code LE supposed to be motor overload according to manual do motors usually go bad or could it be in circuit board control


Motors rarely go bad. A Hall sensor, clipped onto the motor, can go bad, and is rather easy to replace. (the whole motor is easy to replace, for that matter) LE codes can also be caused by bulky loads, like quilts, sleeping bags, pillows, etc., being washed using a high spin speed. Always use a low spin speed for those type items. So, unplug machine, and replug. try another load, making sure to use appropriate spin speed for the load. If LE re-occurs, change the Hall sensor. (It has at least a 5 year part warranty on it in the US) To change Hall sensor, unplug machine, remove back cover, remove bolt from center of motor rotor, remove rotor, remove wire clamps and ground screw, remove 6 bolts holding motor stator (with all those electric coils), unplug wires from stator and sensor, unclip white plastic hall sensor from stator, replace hall sensor with new one, re-assemble. Sounds like a lot, but on a difficulty scale of 1 -10, it's only about a 3.

Displaying LE


Lg has a water pulsator which rotates while filling up with water. If pulsator is faulty, you will get this LE indication. Pulsator is found on bottom left hand side of unit when cover is removed. 2 clear water pipes are connected to it and there is a small plug in that has 2 wires. Remove plug in first then remove from the pipes.
