Check whether you have 115/220V on pump's tags. In case you can't read 115/220V on pump's tags, your problem could be the water level switch. The switch level is usually a diaphragm device with a small clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. I am not familiar with this specific machine, but if you will open the rear panel you will find it easily. Clear tube first from any obstruction, In case it doesn't help, disconnect the wires from the unit (you should disconnect first machine's power cable !!!!!) and measure with a multi-meter on its tugs for continuity and disconnection while you are inhale and blow to its tube. In case it doesn't react, you should replace it. Good luck !

How to fix lg dishwasher that has code le

I think you may be getting IE code which relates to water inlet problems. Either the water pressure is low or the inlet valve may not be working properly.
Refer page 21 in the user manual which can be dowloaded from this site

But if it is LE code then see this page for suggested fix.

Have l g tromm # wm2277HB drum stoped truning and code on front says L E

Error code LE indicates that either the motor is not turning or has locked up for some reason. It can also be due to Hall sensor which monitors direction and speed of the motor. If the sensor is faulty then also this error appears. Motor lock can be caused by several things from a loose connector, to a bad motor. To make sure it's not a locked motor, try turning the drum with your hand. And, if there is any resistance while turning the drum or the drum doesn't move freely then the motor is locked and you'll need to get it replaced. If the motor seems to be fine then you would need to replace the Hall Sensor. To replace the hall sensor, 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. --------------- Unplug the unit from main outlet.Then drain the water from the machine.By disconnecting the drain pump ,There will be too much water so be care full.If you disconnect the drain pump from drain hose to drain the water it will flow on you,so keep towels ready to soak the water. Also clean the water filter. ----------------- In most of the case LE error is solved by just disconnecting the washing machine from main power outlet for 30 minutes.But if the problem is still the same then try cleaning the filter and draining the water from drain pump.This error occurs when motor stops functioning and water does not drain. --------------Also another cause of LE error is Regarding the LE ERROR CODE. This code is also caused by having a residue on the sensors in your unit. You have to use a HE liquid detergent.If you use fabric softener use half of the recommended amount and dilute if it is concentrated. Once a month (for a family of four) put 3 cups of white distilled vine-ager directly into the drum and select sanitary cycle or the hottest cycle you can. This prevents residue from forming in your unit and causing the LE ERROR CODE. ---------------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech,.

I get an LE error message on my LG Dishwasher. I replaced the pump. Still get the LE error. Replaced the main control. Still get the LE. No blockage in the pump. What now?

When you receive the LE error code, unplug the machine for approximately 15 - 20 minutes. This will reset the microprocessor.

Oversudsing is the main cause of LE error codes. Using non-HE detergents or too much detergent will cause stress on the motor. Oversudsing can also cause leaking and odor.

A breakdown in the signal between the microprocessor and the motor may cause the error code. This can occur if there is a loose wire.

A couple of notes about this - there are at least three motors on this unit - the main pump, the drain pump, and the 'vario motor' which appears to control the direction of water flow through the sprayers. The main pump is the one likely to go bad. Another cause of the LE code is broken wires in the door. The wires in the door get stuck in the black sound insulation and eventually break. Sometimes, this causes the LE error code. Check the wires in the door first. They are located behind the large front panel. It's easily removed by undoing 6 screws.

Error code LE Front load washer about 4 years old. This is the first time we had an issue with it. My wife called me and said the water filled but that was it and the error code said LE. This was after she...

That error is a Lock Motor Error. First thing I would do is to replace the hall sensor and check for loose connections going into the hall sensor as well as the main board.

LE code on lg washmachine

The LE error code means that you have a motor problem.  The high pitched noise means that the motor sensor has failed and needs to be replaced.  You will need to call a qualified LG technician to replace the sensor.
