Question about LG WD-3243RHD Front Load Washer / Dryer
LE error message, motor overload
This seems to be a fault in the motor wiring harness, check all the connectors to and from the motor, check the male and female connectors. Also check the sensors to the motor which can cause this motor to show up as overload.

This is a motor fault code. Sometimes it can be just a communication error, in which case you can try unplugging the machine for 20 minutes and see if it clears the problem up. More likely it is a fault in the motor itself. The most likely culprit would be a defective hall sensor. I will attach a photo of the sensor for you to see what it looks like. To access and replace the hall sensor, you have to remove the rotor and stator at the motor. Before going to this trouble, try the unplugging thing first and also check the connector on the main control board. It is the red connector next to the heat sink. Using a multimeter, check that the board is receiving a signal from the sensor. Hope this helps and best wishes.

LE is a very bad error unfortunately. It means that your motor communication is being lost. Generally on these LG washers it means that you need to replace the motor sensor. You will have to take the back panel off so that you can access the motor, remove the pulley and take the motor off, there is a little plastic sensor that clips onto the edge of the motor. The sensor is not sold separately from the motor so you will have to replace the motor unfortunately.
Part would cost you around $120 plus labor.
This is a common error on LG. Better to repair and use it or fix it yourself.
Hope i helped you,
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
