First try unplugging the machine for a few minutes and then retry a cycle. If you still get the LE error:

The Hall sensor (part number 6501KW2001A) has failed. The hall sensor is rather easy to replace, and is covered by a seven year part warranty (in the US). 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. Snap new sensor on and reassemble. Usually takes under a half hour. On a difficulty scale of 1 - 10, it might rate a 4. This should be a Fix-Ya for your machine, and at basically no cost!

Washing machine keeps beeping then all lights and screen start flashing.


i would guess that you have a faulty main board, the quickest and surest way to determine the problem and that is to replace it with a second hand board out of an known old machine which has faulty seals.

AFTER 15 MINUTE FROM OPERATION I SEE ON SCREEN SEMBOLE LE AND MACHINE STOP


Please check on the error codes list for LG machines and confirm if the codes seen is LE.
http://lgknowledgebase.com/kb/index.php?View=entry&EntryID=6333

Since the machine shuts down after working for few minutes , it is possible that it shuts at the time of drain and the suspect can be a damaged or clogged drain pump.
So check the voltage on the drain pump at this time to confirm
Thank you for using Fixya

Dishwashing cycle starts for about 3 minutes then flashing LE light comes on and the machine stops. Why?


Display Condition LE = Motor Error

Possible Cause For Error Occurrence:

Wiring connection is OK?
The Impeller of Washing Pump is locked.
The rotor of Washing Motor is locked.
The Blade is locked.


Remedy:

Check the wiring connection.
Replace the cause of restriction.
Replace the Washing Motor.
Replace the PCB.

Try the following steps:

Unplug the washing machine if you see an LE error on the two-digit display electronic readout. This error indicates a miscommunication between the control panel and wash motor.

Press and hold the "Start/Pause" button on the front panel for five seconds.

Plug the LG dishwasher back in.

Run a cycle. The LE code will clear.

* The electrical contact between the connectores, (3-pin, male, white) in the motor harness and 4-pin, female, white connector in the main PWB assembly is bad or unstable. Or the motor harness between the sator assembly and main PWB assembly is cut (open circuit).
* The hall sensor is out of order/defective.

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.

Washing Machine Stopped Flashed ''LE''


First remove all clothes and look for anything like a wash cloth that may have become stuck, then remove the cord from the wall socket for at least 30 minutes to be safe, and try this again if doesnt work the first time, two, move the drum by hand, close the door, and see if fires up, if so run a 20 minute custom light duty cycle, third replace the drum positioning sensor, 6501KW2001A.

It can be bought on line for between 25 and 40 bucks

Problem with LG washing machine Model number wm1480fhd. The machine drum reluctantly turns and in about a few minutes it displays error code LE (flashing).


LE error code: This indicates a locked motor condition. Please check the following conditions. Large loads of laundry can put a strain on the motor causing the LE error code. Try removing some clothing and restart. Excessive suds can cause the LE error code. Make sure the customer is using an HE (High Efficiency) detergent. They should decrease the amount of detergent until the machine washes without suds. A few bubbles can be expected. Areas that have �soft� water will usually need to use less detergent. If you suspect that excessive suds are the problem, let the machine stand for 30 min (motor cool down) and then run a rinse and spin cycle before restarting the load. If these directions are followed and the code persists, the machine will likely need service. .

LE Code on control panel


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..........
