Its easy to check the coupler, i would do that first to make sure then if its ok , well clutch. Kenmores, a.k.a. whirlpool's , are very common to have both problems. Just remove da pump and hoses, then remove the motor and check the coupler.

I had the same problem. I thought it was the motor it turned out I had a nickle wedged in the filter (bottom left behind panel) the nickle blocked the water pump makeing the pump overload.

The problem you are having is with the Hall sensor. To be 100% sure, here is the test proceedure, it is located on the stator. Replace this and your problems will go away. If you are not already using HE detergent, start using it, as well cut back on your fabric softener.

HI.
LG is a funny machine sometimes. Sometimes even their service manual does not show the parts you need.
In your case you have a motor (stator) problem.
! disconnect from power for 30 min and try again. Sometimes this resets the hall sensor.
According to service manual ( chapter 7)
• The connector in the LEAD WIRE ASSEMBLY is not connected to
the connnector of STATOR ASSEMBLY
Reconnect or repair the connector
• The hall sensor is out of order/defective.
Replace the STATOR ASSEMBLY

If this does not help take of your statot and see if the hall sensor can be clicked off. On the hall sensor is always noted the pat number. This you can try with sears. HERE is your service manual

SOURCE: 5 year old LG WD-1219BD has error code LE, ''overload in motor''

Hi,

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!!

Have your service tech remove the door cover and check the wiring harness completely. Especially where it flexes at the bottom. LG had a problem on some of these models with the insulation degrading on the wirw. Replace the wiring harness and the motor again.

Lg waveforce washer makes grinding squeeking noise drum hard to trun.


The LE error or fault code indicates that the washer motor is either overheating or has lost connection to the motor control circuit board. Turn off the machine for 30 minutes to let the motor cool down. Then, restart the washer. If the code comes back immediately the motor is not likely to be at fault and so you should check the wiring from the motor to the motor control board. Also, check the wiring and condition of the rotor position sensor, also called a HALL sensor. If the code doesn't come back on immediately, but returns after the washer has run for a while, the motor stator may be defective
The tub bearing also appears to be part of the problem.

Lg wd-3245rhd LE error message


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.

Drum starts to move then stops then Le appears and a slight hissing noise from direct drive motor. Looks like intemittant fault


The LE error message means "locked motor error" which means the control is not seeing the motor running.

The problem can be caused by a broken wire or loose connection but the most likely cause of the problem is a bad hall sensor.

The sensor can be accessed by removing the rear panel and the rotor assembly. See the image below for help with this. Remember to unplug the washer first.

Make sure the rotor and drum rotate. Anything blocking the tub rotation might trigger an LE code.

ERROR CODE LE ON LG FRONT LOAD WASHER


LE is a locked motor error. Not to worry as 95% of the time it is just a bad hall sensor (the motor position sensor). For your model the part number is 6501KW2002A.
