LG WM2277HS error code LE

I have a LG WM2277HS. I got the error code LE! I troed re-starting, removing clothes & I have tried unplugging it an still get the error after a couple of minutes. I have been looking and everyone keeps referring to the motor hall sensor? i can not find it to get the part # in the manual, nor can I find where I can purchase it. In my manual it shows the motor is under parts warranty for 7 yrs, would the sensor be covered? Also would there be any way to get instructions for install?

    I have the very same problem. If I put a blanket or any heavy weight garmet into the washer I get an LE code. What I have had to do is to take all the wet clothes out of the dryer, dip the water in the dryer out. Run a cycle and then reload the clothes back into the dryer. Then sometimes it works and other times it gives me the LE error code all over again. Very frustrating to say the least.

This is from the service manual for your washer. The hall sensor may be defective but you will need a technician to check out the other things listed here. The sensor is not covered for 7 years. Good luck

I have a LG Tromm WM2277HS that just flashed the LE signal. We have had this for a couple years and never had a problem...what do I need to do to fix? I have unplugged but should I drain the unit as...


LE stands for a Lock Error and is to do with the hall sensor on the motor.
  • Unplug the Machine for 30 minutes, and plug back in. Try washing again.
Here is the replacement Hall Sensor: http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Motor-Sensor/1268238

Before you pull the motor apart to replace the hall sensor, first of all, check the wiring to the motor.

Unplug the motor, plug it back in and try the machine again.
  1. To replace the sensor, you will need to remove the back panel to access the motor.
  2. Take a 17 mm socket and remove the center bolt holding the rotor assembly.
  3. Pull the rotor straight out and place it off to the side.
  4. Take a 10 mm socket and remove the 6 bolts holding the stator assembly.
  5. On the inside of the stator assembly, you will find the motor sensor connected to a 5 wire connector.
  6. Remove the connector and replace the sensor.
  7. Reinstall everything back together and the unit should work fine.

You could also try this:
  1. Unplug machine
  2. Drain machine
  3. Open machine and rotate barrel clockwise 4 times and counter-clockwise 4 times
  4. Plug in, power on, and run regular cycle and see if the error still comes up.

Here are few troubleshooting tips that i have found. If you acquire further assistance please let me know...

Has a large load size been used with a gentle wash setting?
Gentle wash cycles such as Perm Press, Delicates, Hand Wash, and Wool/Silk should only be used for smaller loads. Because the cycles are more gentle while tumbling and spinning, too many items in the drum can register as an issue with the motor. In this instance reset the unit and run a test rinse and spin cycle.

Has the washer been overloaded?
Single bulky items or large loads can add extra weight to the drum and place stress on the motor. Remove some of the clothing and restart. If the issue is still present after a few items have been removed, unplug the washer for 30 minutes to allow the motor to cool and then restart the cycle.

Sub Symptom LE error code
Question Locked motor error code.
Answer
LE error code: This indicates a locked motor condition. Please check the following conditions. Large loads of laundry can put a strain on the motor causing the LE error code. Try removing some clothing and restart. Excessive suds can cause the LE error code. Make sure the customer is using an HE (High Efficiency) detergent. They should decrease the amount of detergent until the machine washes without suds. A few bubbles can be expected. Areas that have �soft� water will usually need to use less detergent. If you suspect that excessive suds are the problem, let the machine stand for 30 min (motor cool down) and then run a rinse and spin cycle before restarting the load. If these directions are followed and the code persists, the machine will likely need service. .

LE Code on control panel


Press "end of cycle". Plug off the wall. Code can be an indication of several issues. The most common cause is over-sudsing in the machine. Overloading the wash with too much laundry may also cause the LE error code. Lastly, a breakdown in the signal between the microprocessor and the motor may cause that error code. This can occur if there is a loose wire, see that all wires are tightened..........
