Unplug the machine for about 20 minutes so the computer can reset. First load?? Machine is under manufacturer's warranty get hold of the company who sold it to you - ask for a replacement.

My Kelvinator kl 15 tl toplaoder washing machine is very noisy during spin cycles and often becomes unbalanced.

if the noise is a rumble, then you have bearings failing. if it's a clunking then you have an issue with the springs. springs you can replace yourself, bearing / seal replacement is a little more in depth.

I keep getting a code le why?

this a new installation?
In new installations, this error can sometimes present because of a miscommunication between the control panel and the wash motor. In this instance, the washer simply needs to be reset.
Step 1: Unplug the washing machine.
Step 2: While the washer remains unplugged, press and hold the [Start/Pause] button on the front panel for 5 seconds.
Step 3: Plug the unit back in, and run a rinse and spin cycle to test if the LE code is cleared.

Are there soap suds visible in the drum?
Over-sudsing is the main cause of LE error codes. Using non-HE (high efficiency) detergents or too much detergent will cause stress on the motor. In addition, detergent residue can also cause leaking and odor. Follow these steps to resolved an LE error code caused by over-sudsing.
Step 1: Unplug the washer and allow the unit to sit for 30 minutes to give the suds time to dissolve.
Step 2: Plug the washer back in and press [Power] to turn on the washer.
Step 3: Do not choose a washing cycle. Press the [Spin Speed] key until "No Spin" is selected.
Step 4: Press [Start/Pause] to begin a drain only cycle.
Step 5: After the drain only cycle has completed, remove the clothing items from the machine. Turn the power back on and select [Rinse and Spin] and then press [Start/Pause]. This will remove excess soap suds and light residue from the drum. Repeat this step until no visible suds are in the drum of the washer.

Has a large load size been used with a gentle wash setting

Has the washer been overloaded?

One minute left

be sure water is draining out before spin starts if necessary remove bottom panel and clean pump out and ck hoses to pump be sure there are no excess suds ..wash only full loads small loads or loads with 1 heavy item will cause washer to sense off balance and try to balance load this will extend cycle time

Neptune won't advance from Rinse to SPIN

If the clutch fails the first thing noticed is a UC or DC error displayed and there is no drain or spin.

If you are seeing the above error and having a problem with spin and drain then the most likely cause of this is the clutch. The clutch fails to lock down the spinners and the basket is unable to go into spin and without a 90 RPM there is no drain.

Replace the clutch.
