    The LG LDF6810 is has been making a loud "TRRRRRR" noise. Goes thru the first cycle then stops with a "LE" error code. I suspect that there is some sort of a mechanical interference that may heat up the motor & cause it to shut down. Any ideas?



    Does any one have a service manual or a set of schematics for this machine?



    I'm no longer in waranty. I want to fix this machine myself.

    We are having same issue. It worked fine for over an year. Stops in the middle of cycle displaying LE Error Code

    I have same problem... any solution or idea what the code LE means Thanks

  • PLaff Jul 19, 2008

    I am having the exact same problem. Had it once before and notice the drain hose was cinched off preventing drainage. I fixed that and the wash worked for approximately 3 months ... now the error is back. I have checked and there do not appear to be any drainage issues

I have a 3 year old Samsung DMT800RFS dishwasher. It had a 9E error, so we changed the part on the side and replaced the interior gasket. Now we get a oE error and I can not enter Service Mode to re


I don't know if this is the same. However, on my washing machine I had to clear out the water trap at the bottom of the machine. I know I have to clean it out every 6 months to be on the safe side. This also helps the machine to not smell like old stagnate water and helps your clothing smell fresher with not having that water build up and sit. I found all strange things in all kinds of water overflow tubs.

LG WM0642HW ALWAYS HAVE (LE)


Unplug the unit from main outlet.Then drain the water from the machine.By disconnecting the drain pump ,There will be too much water so be care full.If you disconnect the drain pump from drain hose to drain the water it will flow on you,so keep towels ready to soak the water. Also clean the water filter. ----------------- In most of the case LE error is solved by just disconnecting the washing machine from main power outlet for 30 minutes.But if the problem is still the same then try cleaning the filter and draining the water from drain pump.This error occurs when motor stops functioning and water does not drain. --------------Also another cause of LE error is Regarding the LE ERROR CODE. This code is also caused by having a residue on the sensors in your unit. You have to use a HE liquid detergent.If you use fabric softener use half of the recommended amount and dilute if it is concentrated. Once a month (for a family of four) put 3 cups of white distilled vine-ager directly into the drum and select sanitary cycle or the hottest cycle you can. This prevents residue from forming in your unit and causing the LE ERROR CODE. ---------------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech,.

Lg wm3677hw the le error code, how do I repair


Some of my notes:

When you press the "SPIN SPEED" button and "SOIL LEVEL" button the water level frequency should be above 246. If it be below that number find the small tube going to the control and blow it out. Get rid of the sediment in the air bell and reconnect tightly. Pump out water and retry.


Hall sensor failure:
When too much of the low-sudsing HE detergent is used in the LG washers (and especially non-HE type detergent)...

The motor & main board will detect suds when the tub begins to spin.

As strange as this sounds--suds causes drag/resistance.

The older hall sensors overheated--the main board would shut-down the washer & flash an error message of "LE".

If the Hall Sensor was not damaged--then the customer would be able to unplug the washer for about 2-3 minutes and plug in the washer again--the washer would be able to be re-started (reboot of the computer).

Eventually--this results in an "LE" error that won't re-set and the Hall Sensor needs to be replaced. The tell-tale symptom of this (aside from a "stuck" LE error) is that when the customer pushes the START button--the tub *wiggles* momentarily before flashing LE again.
On a few occasions--the washer WILL start but the motor GROWLS loudly.

It's very important not only to use "HE" (High Efficiency-Low Suds) type detergent--but to use the correct amount.
Nearly all brands of "HE" detergent have incorrect dosage instructions.

The correct amount is as follows:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Washload

HE 2X (double concentrated) : (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X (triple concentrated): (1) Teaspoon

This reduces/prevents:

1) Musty Odor

2) "LE" Error/Interrupted Cycle

3) L-O-N-G Cycle Times (longer than time displayed)

4) Insufficient Cleaning Results

5) Small Water Leaks from the air vent behind the washer or at the
front door gasket

6) Damaged Hall Effect Sensor (on 2007 or older LG washers)

7) Reduced Spin Speeds (laundry not spin-dried effectively)

Most consumers were doing what is *normally* the right thing to do, which is to follow directions on the detergent label. In this rare case--those directions should be entirely disregarded.

Additionally--in many LG washers--the liquid dispenser cup (blue cup) has a "MAX" line on the white siphon cap.
This was a very big *faux pas* on LGs part--this "MAX" line has NOTHING to do with measuring detergent and should never be used as a guide for determining correct detergent amount.
The "MAX" line indicates how much liquid must be in the blue dispenser cup before it DISPENSES from the bottom of the cup.
This is a very,very frustrating mistake that gives owners much grief.

After three months of incorrect type of detergent or incorrect amount of the correct detergent used--musty odor begins to occur.
After more than two years--a significant amount of soap scum/curd has accumulated in the washer. Odor-causing bacteria flourishes on this build-up.
It is imperative to remove this slimy residue. Tide sells a product called "TIDE WASHING MACHINE CLEANER" which is very effective.

Once a tub has become heavily contaminated--normal methods of performing a TUB CLEAN cycle won't "cut it".

Add the entire packet of "TIDE WASHING MACHINE CLEANER" directly into the tub (no laundry) and close the door.

Press and hold: SPIN SPEED & SOIL LEVEL buttons--then press POWER button.
Wait for door to lock.

Press the START button (6) times--this will fill the tub with hot water to the maximum setting when it stops filling.

Press the START button two more times--this will enable the tub to tumble.
After 3 hours--turn "off" the washer.
Turn the washer back "on".
Select the shortest wash cycle (usually "quick wash") and press "START". This will rinse out the tub.
This method of "TUB CLEAN" is *not* from a service manual but has been the best method for cleaning out LG washers more than a year into incorrect detergent usage.

After this--use the correct amount of "HE" detergent & perform a "TUB CLEAN" cycle every (4) months using the *tub clean* option on the control panel.

Samsung Front Load washer has odour


IMPORTANT: Read thoroughly. DO NOT add detergent or other laundry products to this cycle.
1. Remove all items from the washer.
2. Open the dispenser drawer and 2/3 cup (160 mL) of liquid chlorine bleach to the bleach compartment. DO NOT use more than 2/3 cup (160mL) of bleach per cycle as this will lead to product damage.
3. Close the washer door and dispenser drawer.
4. Select the Clean Washer cycle or a full wash cotton 104 F wash (40 C). DO NOT use any higher temperature as this will cause unnecessary fumes
5. Press Start and allow cycle to complete.
6. If the bad odour persists, repeat the procedure 1 or 2 more times. This may be necessary if this is the first time you have run this cycle.
7. After the cycle is complete, leave the door open slightly to allow ventilation and drying of the washer interior.
8. Repeat the cleaning procedure monthly.
To maintain the washer freshness:
1. Use only HE High Efficiency detergent.
2. Leave the door open after each cycle to for better ventilation and drying of the washer interior.
3. Use warm / hot water in your machine unless the fabric you are washing requires cold.
4. Use the correct amount of fabric softener.
5. If your laundry room is damp, use a dehumidifier.
6. Clean the door seal of visible residue.

Rid of Mildew Smell?


Make sure there are no leaks from the machine. look behind it and check the water inlet hose and connectors for any damage. Also look under the machine for any water as this may indicate a leak from the internal hose and pipe work and / or water pump. Also check that the outlet hose is completely clear of debris and soap scum build up and check that the filter is clean.

To keep the machine clean of waste build up and to keep any bad odours away
1. Remove all items from the washer.
2. Open the dispenser drawer and 2/3 cup (160 mL) of liquid chlorine bleach to the bleach compartment. DO NOT use more than 2/3 cup (160mL) of bleach per cycle as this will lead to product damage.
3. Close the washer door and dispenser drawer.
4. Select the Clean Washer cycle or a full wash cotton 104 F wash (40 C). DO NOT use any higher temperature as this will cause unnecessary fumes
5. Press Start and allow cycle to complete.
6. After the cycle is complete, leave the door open slightly to allow ventilation and drying of the washer interior.
7. Repeat the cleaning procedure monthly
