Question about LG WM-2277HW Front Load Washer

1 Answer

LG WM0642HW washer gives error during spin cycle and stops.

LG WM0642HW front load washer gives an error during spin cycle and stops. A message comes up "LE". We had a service man look at it and said we were using too much soap and showed us how to drain the tub. He said too much suds prevented proper draining.

The error comes up too often even when using little soap or no soap. This last time I looked at the drum when the spin indicator was on and the tub was not spinning. Evventually the "LE" message came on. I opened the door and the tub had a lot of water.

I drain the tub as the service man had recommended and tried again with the same result. There has to be something wrong and it is not a soap problem.

I have this problem and you can find the solution on this same web page by searching. It is likely the Hall Sensor that needs to be replaced (see proflevy posting on Jul 16, 2008). According to the postings, it is from soap build up on the sensor and replacing it costs $18 for the part and is easy (many responses on this). I am waiting for the part and will try to fix mine soon.

Hi!

I think there is nothing wrong with your washer. The UE error means Unballanced Error. This error comes up in two cases: 1. the load is distributed unevenly in the drum or 2. the machine is not properly set on an even surface (floor).
Of course, it could be a third case possible, but very unlikely, when the ballance sensor itself is malfunctioning and have to be replaced, or the spring and dampers are worn out and also have to be replaced.

Hope it helped!

Best regards

I get a message le or ue error and machine stops


Where in the cycle is the machine stopping?
A 1E error would be a fill problem. Either the water supply is inadequate (low pressure coming in due to a problem with your water supply), the water supply taps aren't fully open (make sure to open the valves fully), the inlet hose is bent (straighten the hose) or the inlet filter is clogged (clean the filter).

An UE error happens during the spin cycle. Either the load is too small or the load is uneven. Add some items that can tolerate the spin cycle speed or redistribute the load.

A LE error indicates that the motor has overloaded. Wait 30 minutes and then try to restart the machine. If the error persists, the unit needs service.

The manual for the WM-2277H* is available from LG as a DjVu file here: http://www.lg.com/us/support/product/support-product-profile.jsp?customerModelCode=WM2277HB&matchedModelCode=NOT_MATCHED&searchEngineModelCode=WM2277HB&initialTab=documents&targetPage=support-product-profile# .

I hope this helps.

"UE" error code LG washer wm0642hw


This is an Imbalance code. Your issue may be with:

  • The load is too small
  • The appliance is tilted
  • Laundry is gathered to one side
  • Non-distributed things are put into the drum
Try adjusting the load size, and make sure the unit is level.
