Question about LG WM-2277HW Front Load Washer

1 Answer

My LG 2277HW gave the LE error and we replaced the entire motor based on a Washing Machine Repair Company's advice. Within the month the machine would not spin the clothes all the way out and eventually started to give us the OE code at specific times during the wash and spin cycle. We drained everything the manual said to drain and replaced the drain hose! We still have the error, it does not go into a full spin, won't wash a full load, and it sounds like it is off balance everytime it goes into a rinse or spin mode. HELP! We have already spent $400 on this 3 year old machine over the last year! We are ready to buy a new machine!

    They replaced the motor because there was a metal sensor broken and causing a scraping sound when the LE error started. He said it was all part of the motor, and he couldn't just replace that part. I have drained the hose at the bottom left corner behind the panel and cleaned out the drain. I check this frequently! I have also replaced the large drain hose at the back of the machine.

    We had the same problem. I just turne the machine off for 20 minutes and then turned it back on , it now works again. Apparently LE is a communication problem and turning the machine off resets it!

The LE issue should of been for the followinig, not a motor:
LE LOCKED MOTOR ERROR


• The connector (3-pin, male, white) in the MOTOR HARNESS is not connected to the connector (3-pin, female, white) of STATOR ASSEMBLY.


• The electric contact between the connectors (3-pin, male, white) in the MOTOR HARNESS and 4-pin, female, white connector in the MAIN PWB ASSEMBLY is bad or unstable.


• The MOTOR HARNESS between the STATOR ASSEMBLY and MAIN PWB ASSEMBLY is cut (open circuited).


• The ball sensor is out of order/defective.

The OE error means it is not draining. Two diffrent issues.
Are you sure you cleaned out the drain filter on the bottom? Not just drained it. You have to drain it then pull the filter out and clean it.

Water still in machine says LE on display


LE error code means Locked Motor Error.

Sometimes this can be cleared by unplugging then plugging back in the machine. If this does not clear it you have a faulty component.

This usually failure of a component called the Hall Effect Sensor which may need to be replaced.

Getting a LE alarm sheet says call repair???


LE means motor overload. If it was a very large load, try pulling some out and re-running. Is the tub spinning? If it is not spinning, lurching, or only spinning one way, replace your hall sensor - see here:

The part is cheap and it takes around 1/2 hour to do. You will need someone to help hold the tub while you take out the main bolt in the motor.

My washing machine drum don't want to spine at all it show on the lcd the code le


this code LE indicateds a locked motor error. the motor harness between the stator assy. and the main power assembly has an open circuit. It can also mean that the Hall Sensor is non functioning. you will need a repair person for this job.
