    Sorry about that, new to the site. I thought I should only chose that if it worked and I won't know until the part comes in, but I am planning on taking your advice on the fix.. Thanks!

Instead of removing the front panel to change it out, try this:

  1. Pull machine about 18 inches away from wall and tilt it back until it rests against the wall with the front legs off the ground.
  2. Reach up and clip the nylon wire tie holding the sensor wires and pull the sensor out of the rubber grommet. (Located on the bottom front of the tub)
  3. Unplug the wire disconnect and install the new part.
That's a lot faster and easier than removing the front panel to get at the sensor.

    Wow, only a helpful for that? That seems harsh considering the suggested service proceedure will take about an hour longer and require about 15 steps.

HLP 21E doesn't spin out enough

Its because the belt has deteriorated //loosened. It needs to be replaced. It's a simple job if you have the "REPAIR" manuel in which to explain the steps/manor to remove and replace the belt.. The portable is a different setup then the full size washer. A repair man will charge about $75.00 an hour (should not take more then 20 min but will still charge the hour) plus some charge travel time/gas. The part you can by on line for less then $10.00 (with s&h) where the repair man will charge at least 3 times that for the part (belt). Good luck finding a "REPAIR" manual.

I have a Maytag Neptune MAH 6700 AWW. It is shutting off and giving error code tE. Customer service does not recognize the error code. Can you help?

This is a problem with the signal from the water heating element "Thermistor" a Thermistor is a solid state sensor that senses temperature, in this case water temp. The Thermistor is part of the washers water heating assembly and not sold separately from it. There is a factory repair bulletin associated with the problem and the new part has improved reliability. I can't understand what the Maytag folks you called would tell you it is not listed, it is a common fault in the Neptune. Please rate my help. Thanks

How to fix the rear washer fluid tank

Buy a Chilton Repair manual and learn how to repair for yourself saving a small fortune either at an auto supply house/or online or buy an new rear washer fluid tank and install it as you uninstalled the old one or take the vehicle to an authorized Chevrolet dealership for repair. The problem that I have found with taking it to the dealerships it could be something as simple as the hoses are worn out and need to be replaced which is cheap and simple but the dealerships want to replace everything involved which is costly, but if you are not mechanically inclined and do not trust what you can learn from the CHILTON'S repair manual please take it to the dealership.

Model LGWM2277H purchased 2005 - Since 3/19/10 LE Code Continues


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 !!

You have a problem with the fusing unit. This is the assembly that gets hot and "fuses" the toner onto your paper. This error code means that the fusing unit did not warm up properly. You will need to have a service company come out to diagnose and repair the problem then reset this code as service mode entry is required in order to reset. It could be as simple as cleaning the thermistor, replacing the thermistor, thermal fuse etc. I would estimate the cost at around $200.00.
Here is the section from the service manual that deals with this code:
Thermistor /1 (TH1) detects a low
temperature when a specified
period of time elapses after the
fusing heater lamp is turned ON
for the fusing ON control.

The thermistor is located in a grommet in the heater element, which is located at the bottom of the tub at the rear of the m/c, access by removing lower rear panel.
If not there it will be at the front of the m/c, just twist and pull the thermistor out of the grommet.Replace.

LGWM2277H LE light came on does the motor have a reset button i need to push

Hello momof3611

You said, Your LGWM2277H washer LE light flashes. Troubleshooting guide says overload in motor. Is there a reset on the motor that needs reset or does something else need done. washer was working fine until we put a big load of jeans in to wash. when we checked wash soapy water was in washer and I can't get it to rinse. drum is not turning.

If you overload, with to much clothes the weight will trigger this error your having in most washer.
Take some clothes out.

Then try this:
Unplug the washer for 5 minutes, or if you can't reach the plug, turn the breaker off for 5 minutes and then the system should reset itself!
Let me know.I'm looking right now for any reset code in the repair manual too!
Please remember to leave a rating.
