    Washer is also almost 2 years old and cant clear the le code. Tryed unplugging for two hours. When it starts it makes a squeeling noise from the stator sensor on the back. Drum spins free when off. I have been waiting for a repair person for two weeks and they might get over next week Wednesday. I suspect a bad stator on the back of the drum. Any ideas?

I have this washer and the LE error code generally comes on when there is hair and lint (and maybe a hairpin or coins) in the lint trap in the little lint trap on left bottom corner. Take a standard screw driver or quarter and pop open the hatch door. Pull the small black drain hose off the hook and drain into a pan or larger bowl after pulling little plug out of hose. Don't pullbefore you have something to drain it in, all the water will go all over your floor. Then there is a white basket that you unscrew and pull out whatever is caught in the trap. I have two girls with VERY long hair and three dogs. Usually this machine will give me the LE error after I have washed dog bed covers about every other time. It doesn't happen often, but it usually is hair balls basically. Otherwise no problems and love the machine.

I feel you could simply have a blocked drain pump. is there water still in the unit when the code LE comes on. if so simply remove obstruction and try running unit again.

The LE error code can be an indication of several different 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 or a dislodged ball sensor. Good luck!

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 error


I tried a solution I found elsewhere - worked great. I had turned my drum enough to cause the display to turn on (a glitch in their program, I think), then I got the LE code on the next cycle.

Unplug for 10 minutes. Turn back on and press the Rinse & Spin button, then set Spin Speed to No Spin. Run this cycle, which should work fine. Afterwards, you should be able to run your machine as normal. If this doesn't work, replacing the Hall sensor would be the next step.

If you have a moldy smell, run a no-clothes cycle with some liquid bleach. Should clear that up.

Sensor Error, Funny Smell and Noise


On GE models, "SENSOR ERROR" appears on the display when:
  • Using the sensor feature, the door was opened before steam could be detected. Do not open the door until stream is sensed and time is shown counting down on the display.
  • Steam was not detected in the maximum amount of time. Use Time Cook to heat for more time.
If none of these conditions apply to your situation, then you may have a defective sensor and/or magnetron.

The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for maybe an hour. Then let us know if the hard reset does not fix it.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Le error code


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..........
Try the above..........
