May want to check out the belt on the bottom. If it got wet, it may have stretched it out to wear it wont work. The tension is caused by the motor sliding in and out on a sliding system, which may have gotten a little rust in there. Make sure the motor will move somewhat freely and that the belt isnt stretched to much. Might be an easy fix. Good Luck!!! Jim

What is the probable cause of an LE code?


Most washers give it a certain amount of time to fill up with water and if it doesn't sense it has filled up with enough water after that time it will stop the washer. This is done as a safety so your washer won't flood your house. First thing to check is that the washer is filling up with hot and cold washer correctly, and that the water is coming into the washer at a good rate. The hot water valve has one solenoid, but the cold water has three solenoids (more to go bad). A clogged or failed water valve is the most common thing that we see cause this type of a problem.

Water level drops below the reset level during the wash or rinse portion of the cycle. Check for leaks in the washer tub and connected components. Check the installation of the drain system. Water can siphon out of the washer if it's not installed properly.

Do you have friend who would take the time to open the machine.

Hello, On Neptune washer serial # 34098916EF, Washer tub fills with about 2 inches of water within hours after doing a wash. When I spin the tub by hand, I hear water sloshing inside. Machine drains fine....


You have a bad water fill valve. Until you get it fixed shut water valves off at the wall so that you don't have a flood if the fill valve on the machine fails completely. Let me know if there is anything else I can Help you with.

Water Overflow


hi there,

i would recommend checking the water level switch or lid switch and also the cable leading to it. that is what sends a signal to the machine control to stop filling with water.
