LE codes are extensively covered in past Fix-Ya solutions, but are generally caused by only a handful of things. 1. the " Load Error " can be a very off balanced load. 2. excessive use of soap leads to too much suds, and thus drag on the inner tub. (use 1 tablespoon of HE soap max. per load) or 3. the Hall sensor (part number 6501KW2001A) has failed. The hall sensor is rather easy to replace, and is covered by a seven year part warranty. Take the back cover off. Take the big nut off and remove the motor rotor. Remove the bolts holding the motor windings. Remove the electric plug on the sensor and unclip it from the motor winding. Snap new sensor on and reassemble. Usually takes under a half hour. On a difficulty scale of 1 - 10, it might rate a 4. This should be a Fix-Ya for your machine, and at basically no cost!

Lg front loading washer flasing LE and stops midcycle


In new installations, this error can sometimes present because of a miscommunication between the control panel and the wash motor. In this instance, the washer simply needs to be reset.

Step 1: Unplug the washing machine.

Step 2: While the washer remains unplugged, press and hold the [Start/Pause] button on the front panel for 5 seconds.

Step 3: Plug the unit back in, and run a rinse and spin cycle to test if the LE code is cleared.

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 !!

What does LEstand for on the washer machine??


LE stands for Load Error. You may have a bad hall sensor, but more likely have an off balance or very heavy load which you were trying to spin at a high speed. For heavy / bulky items, use the low spin speed. After the cycle, you can power the machine up again and just push the spin speed button until the next higher speed shows, then push start to get a 14 minute or so pump and spin only cycle if you want to spin the load out a bit more.

My front load washer had ue blinking after a load was supposed to be finished. The clothes were soaking wet like the washer didn't spin


UE is imbalance error...Usually because a load in the machine is unable to distribute itself around the inner drum, and the machine senses the load as imbalanced.....Good Luck Nomess

Code LE, will not finish the spin cycle


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)

My washer says LE and hasnt drained all the water


I have the same issue - Had this washer for 6 yrs - up to now - it's been great. But, now I'm not sure what that problem is. Looks like the bin only spins counterclockwise - not clockwise. I can hear the motor trying to spin - then eventually I get the LE error code.

LE Error message


"LE" means overload in motor. When we first got our LD washer we had similar problems. I evenually concluded it was related to adding too much detergent. My suggestion is remove everything and run the machine thru the cycle empty a couple of times with just water. If you cannot get it to run, try draining the water though the drain at the front lower corner. Then using a jug add some hot water in the soap dispenser to flush some of the detergent, and drain that. See if the machine will now run thru a cycle with just water. In our case we were able to get it to run after it sat for a day, perhaps the motor need to cool, I am not sure why. It was tough to get the machine going but once we flushed it and used a LITTLE high efficiency soap with loads we have had no more problems except once when my son did a load with lots of detergent. Then we followed the steps above and were back in business. Hope this help you.
