Question about LG WM-2277HW Front Load Washer
Starts fine then within a few minutes of wash it grinds to a noisey halt then LE flashes. HELP!
I'm sorry I only have service info on US market models, but this info might help.
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!

I tried what I'd seen written elsewhere - my LE error came after I turned the drum as I was unloading it, which caused the control panel to light up. This confused the brain.
I unplugged it for 10 minutes, then started a Rinse & Spin cycle with No Spin selected for the Spin Speed. After this completed, I was able to use the washer as normal.

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..........
