LE error code persists on Model 796.3151 washer. What should I do?

Bought new machine. Washed first load with no problem. During second load the LE error code (motor error) came on. Followed instructions in troubleshooting guide to allow the washer to stand for 30 minutes and then restart the cycle. The LE code persists.

For me, it was a loose nut that holds the motor on (asked an old-time Sears repairman!). Pull the machine out, then tip it back. There is a ventilated disk the size of a medium frying pan. There may be a nut on the floor or it may be loose, as it was for me. The nut is free running, so once it breaks loose, it spins off readily. My nut on a machine from 2012 took a 15/16" socket and needed to be snugged home with about 2-4 second with the lightest setting on an impact wrench. Should have been a real lock nut/elastic stop nut. Alternately you could put some loctite on the nut before securing it. And boy, was that easy!

SOURCE: Kenmore Elite Oasis TL washer, stubborn Sd code

Found the problem. After removing the back panel, found some garments in the bottom of the surrounding clear plastic tub. These must have been periodically blocking the outflow area and triggering the Sd error code. Fixed it by opening the top components of the washer so I could see down into the surrounding tub from above. Fished out the garments with clothes hangar. Put everything back together and have done six loads with zero problems.

SOURCE: LG Washer LE Error

Solved LE error for my WM1832CW by replacing Hall Sensor. Bought part 5016501KW2002A for $Cdn 26 at Sears parts store. Thanks to TC at http://www.howtomendit.com/answers.php?id=28214 for instructions:
1 Open rear panel. Take 17mm nut off (it's the only one)
2 Pull off what looks like a goofy hubcap (it's held by magnets)
3 Unscrew the six 10mm bolts and gently lower the coils
4 Remove and replace the Hall Sensor (plastic comb looking thing)5 Plug in the sensor and re-install the coils and cover.
30 minutes for me.
Test spin cycle if desired by following chart on page 19 of service manual at http://www.appliancefactoryparts.com/content/pdfs/125448.pdf
(note lower models skip step 10 (heater test).
Hall Sensor Part labelled as K351 in diagram on page 41 of service manual.

My name is raza. i have west point washing machine model no 1225tl , Fix error LE is coming. please tell me about this urgent.


An LE error code on the washer's display indicates that the motor is locked, possibly due to a heavy wash load.
Large and heavy sized loads will put a strain on the motor, causing the LE code to occur. Performing a reset on the washer will normally resolve this error.
To reset the washing machine:
  1. Press POWER to turn the washer off
  2. Unplug the washer from the power outlet. If the outlet cannot be reached, turn the circuit breaker to the unit off.
  3. With the power disabled to the washer, press and hold the START/PAUSE button for 5 seconds.
  4. Plug the washer back in, or turn the circuit breaker back on.
The washer should now be reset and the LE code cleared. If washing a heavy or large load, reduce the load size and attempt to restart the cycle.
Note: For your safety and to preserve your warranty, if the issue persists, LG recommends that all repairs are performed by an Authorized Service Center.

ERROR CODE LE ON LG FRONT LOAD WASHER


LE is a locked motor error. Not to worry as 95% of the time it is just a bad hall sensor (the motor position sensor). For your model the part number is 6501KW2002A.

Le code appears during normal cycle


LG recommends unplugging the washer for 15 - 20
minutes to reset the microprocessor.

The most common cause for the LE error code is over-sudsing in the machine from using regular detergent instead of a high efficiency detergent. The HE detergents are designed for lower suds levels and enhanced cleaning performance in front-loading washers.

Overloading the wash with too much laundry may also cause the LE error code. LG recommends loading the washer until the clothes in the drum are no more than three-fourths of the way up the window of the door. This will allow them sufficient room for tumbling.

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. .
