How do I fix my washing machine

If your washer was working previously please read below.
Thermal Overload Protection

Your washer may display the LE code if the thermal overload protection circuit in the motor has been tripped. The feature is designed to prevent the motor from overheating and causing permanent damage to the washer. To clear the error code, the motor must cool down. Allow the washer to sit for approximately half an hour before restarting the cycle. If the code reappears, the motor may have an issue that requires a service call. Unplug your washer and contact LG.

LG wm6042h washing machine. LE code for motor overload.

This is normally a common problem on LG tromms. The cause of this error code is as stated "motor overload" . The most common fix to this problem is replacing the hall effect sensor. But.... If you weren't getting this code before replacing the bearing I would recommend checking the sensor to make sure it's plugged in correctly.

Lg wd-3245rhd LE error message

This seems to be a fault in the motor wiring harness, check all the connectors to and from the motor, check the male and female connectors. Also check the sensors to the motor which can cause this motor to show up as overload.

My 7 year old LG Front Load Washer Model # WM1812CW displayed ERROR CODE LE(Overload in motor): how can I fix this problem ? The rinse cycle begins, shortly thereafter, the machine stops and the LE code...

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

LE error in your LG front load washer is displayed when either the motor is not working or the control board thinks that the motor is locked up. A Hall Effect sensor is used in these washers which monitors the speed and direction of the motor and then forwards this information to the control board. Hope you understand by now that this LE error is displayed when there is an issue with the motor or when the Hall Effect sensor sends wrong signal to the control. Conclusion is you'll have to check both motor and hall sensor and replace the part# that is bad, usually I have seen the sensor going bad. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

5 year old LG WD-1219BD has error code LE, ''overload in motor''


LE is a very bad error unfortunately. It means that your motor communication is being lost. Generally on these LG washers it means that you need to replace the motor sensor. You will have to take the back panel off so that you can access the motor, remove the pulley and take the motor off, there is a little plastic sensor that clips onto the edge of the motor. The sensor is not sold separately from the motor so you will have to replace the motor unfortunately.

Part would cost you around $120 plus labor.

This is a common error on LG. Better to repair and use it or fix it yourself.

Hope i helped you,

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Le error code on my LG washer.

On LG Washers the code LE is for motor overload protection.
Ensure that you are not overloading washer, make sure to clean pump by draining at little door at lower left corner(check manual for instructions), unplug for 30 minutes to reset, now try running cycle again. if it fails again something else is causing the motor to work to hard and will require a professional.
