My front loader washing machine suddenly stop working at there is an LE sign


LG, the electronics and appliances conglomerate, manufactures a variety of high-efficiency washing machines. Whether you have a front- or top-loading model, your LG washer is equipped with an error-monitoring system. When the LE code appears in your display, it indicates a problem with the motor. The problem can be related to several different issues. In order to clear the error, determine which issue is at hand.
New Installation The LE error code may appear in an LG washer's display if installation issues exist. It indicates a miscommunication between the wash motor and the control panel. In most cases, you can simply reset the washer to solve the problem. Unplug your washer before pressing and holding the Start/Pause button for approximately five seconds. Plug it back in and set the washer to a rinse-spin cycle to see if the code has cleared. If the code reappears in the display, contact LG at the phone number in your owner's manual for assistance.
Thermal Overload Protection Your washer may display the LE code if the thermal overload protection circuit in the motor has been tripped. The feature is designed to prevent the motor from overheating and causing permanent damage to the washer. To clear the error code, the motor must cool down. Allow the washer to sit for approximately half an hour before restarting the cycle. If the code reappears, the motor may have an issue that requires a service call. Unplug your washer and contact LG.
Excessive Suds If your washer detects excessive soap suds in the drum, the LE error code can appear. Typically, excessive sudsing occurs when you use too much high-efficiency detergent or a detergent that's not specifically high-efficiency detergent. Always follow the guidelines in your owner's manual and on the detergent label to determine what type of detergent, and how much, to use. To get rid of soap suds in the drum and clear the code, unplug your washer and let it sit for a half hour so the suds can dissolve. Plug the washing machine back in and turn it on, hitting the Spin Speed button and selecting "No Spin." Press the Start/Pause button to turn on a drain only cycle. When the cycle is completed, remove the load from the tub. Start a rinse-spin cycle to clear away any residue. You may need to repeat the cycle to remove all of the suds.
Load Issues The LE error code can appear in an LG washer's display due to certain load conditions. If you are washing a large load, don't choose a gentle cycle like Delicates, Hand Wash, Perm Press or Wool/Silk. Reserve them for smaller loads. To reset the washer, unplug it and press the Start/Pause button for five seconds before plugging it back in. The LE code can indicate that the washer has been overloaded; large loads and bulky items can strain the motor. Remove a few items from the washer to reduce the load size and restart the cycle. If the code appears again, let the washer sit for a half-hour so the motor has time to cool down before you restart the cycle.

My LG WM1832CW is blinking LE on the readout. what's wrong?


Hi,


LE code stands for locked motor error. When this error code appears in your front load washer it indicates a fault in the motor unit.

1 . Check the connections to the Coil/Stator at the rear of the unit possibly it should be something like a broken wire.

2 . Coil/Stator Assembly will be defective preventing the drive to operate.You should go for a replacement of that assembly.

Thank you !!

LG LE Error code


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.

OE message on our LG WM1832CW washer


I just was searching for the same exact error on my LG WM1832CW washer. From reading the other posts on different manufacturers I realized this was a pump clog issue for mine too. There is a small door near the bottom of the front of the washer and if you open that there is a filter basket. Once you start turning it and break the seal, the water will come out quickly, have 2 flat large tupperwares so you can catch the water. Once you clean out that filter it's good to go. A 5 minute job.

Try replacing the sensor assembly. Part number 6501KW2002A. It is on the stator itself where the 4 wire connector clips to. Only costs $17 + change & shipping. Mine works fine now!
