Le error code

I have a lg wm0532hm washing machine. so far the drum position sensor, drain pump, and stator aasy. have been replaced. Still have an le code. I have power at all three wires at the stator assy. Please help. Our LG WM0532 front loading washer has been flashing the LE code. We tried turning off the power source overnight but it didn't work. We replaced the Stator or Hall sensor & also cleaned the filter. Still, LE code pops up. We're considering purchasing a new washer as our 5 year warranty ended in February. But we'd obviously like to fix the problem if possible. Any ideas?

LE is a locked rotor code, but usually means the sensor is not functioning. replace Hall sensor, if that doesn't fix it make surer the drum turns freely. the rotor never goes bad, and the stator almost never goes bad. replace board if sensor doesn't fix it.

How do I fix a loose or locked up drum that generates LE errors?

you sure it is not and upside down 'F' instead of an L? that would be a hall sensor(motor position sensor) error. easy fix. check out or for both parts and videos that show how to repair. very easy with common tools. about 20-30 minutes. basically take back cover off, remove motor cover, remove stator, replace part.

My lg wm0742hga front load washer machine over fill of water.

Hello Felipe;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

The LE error code stands for "Locked Motor Error." This is one of the more common error codes on LG washing machines. Ii is a fault condition. Read your manual where it explicitly tells you to use only High Efficiency (HE) detergent. Although, regular detergent is less expensive, using other than HE, you are going to continue to have problems. Such as premature drum bearing failure.This is an expensive repair.
In the LG washer, the LE error code is usually caused by the burned out hall effect sensor, Part Number: 6501KW2002A.


1.) Unplug your unit and remove the back cover.



Be absolutely certain that the HALL EFFECT SENSOR is installed correctly. Three white plastic tabs on the STATOR (motor) securely hold the sensor in the correct position. If any of the *three plastic tabs* were damaged during an attempt to remove the old sensor-this will require replacing the STATOR ASSY
Also, Check for any black marks on the wires or burns or broken wires.

I have a LG Tromm with an LE error code. I just replaced the hall sensor

With a digital volt meter you need to measure the ohms value of the hall sensor. It has 4 wires. White red blue and gray. With the meter set at 20k ohms check hall sensor at the control panel. From white to blue you should read 9.5 K ohms. Same with white to red. If u get 9.5k ohms on both readings u have a bad main board. However to me I think your pump is bad. LG washers will not spin if they don't drain.

LE error (checked stator and replaced HAll sensor already)

If the control board does not receive the input it will not operate does the door lock? However:
The attachment shows how to diagnose and repair a failed hall sensor, the usual cause of
an LE error code.

DO NOT replace the stator until the hall sensor has been tested. 98% of LE error codes are
caused by failed hall sensors.

[DD motor SVC check process ]

Pre Check
1) Gentle wash cycles, such as Perm Press, Delicates, Hand Wash, and Wool/Silk should only be used for
smaller loads. Because these cycles are more gentle in tumbling and spinning, putting too much in the
drum can register an issue with the motor. Remove items, reset unit and test with a Rinse/Spin cycle.
2) Don't replace the PCB when the hall sensor is replaced.
Check the hall sensor as shown in the new process.
O have a file I can send but can not upload here if you want it, contact me please put hall sensor in subject line. Thanks

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.

LE error code on LG

The LE error code could mean a number of different issues. The advice LG themselves give you is to unplug the unit for 2 hours and drain the tub. There will be an access panel at the bottom and theres a hose you can drain the tub into a bucket. Oversudsing can cause this error. Also can a software issue in the control board.

Most people get this error with the units brand new within the first three or four loads. Other issues could be a bad RPS sensor, Stator, or Control board. We have one of these units in the shop right now that we replaced everything that LG said to replace with no success. We have been waiting on a new control board for 4 months now......

Hope this helps _MJ_

Le error code

LE indicates a fault with the motor on the appliance.

LG suggest you switch off, wait for a minute, unplug the appliance.

Wait 15 minutes then plug it back in again.

Try the machine again.

If it's still faulty, you can try changing the Hall Sensor in the motor, this can sometimes cure the problem.

Unplug the machine and remove the rear cover. There are 4 Philips head screws. Take them out and remove the rear cover.

You should now see the rear of the motor, which is mounted to the back of the drum.

In the middle is a large bolt which holds the stator cover.

You'll need a 17mm socket and a ratchet to remove this bolt.

Remove the stator cover and place aside.

Toward the bottom-left, you will see a couple of wire bunches held to the motor by three screws. One holds a metal bracket, one actually holds a ground wire, and the last is through a plastic bracket toward the bottom. Remove these three screws and don't lose them.

Through the motor there are 6 bolts holding it onto the back of the drum assembly.

You'll need a 10mm socket and ratchet to remove them.

You will now have the motor off the back of the drum.

Disconnect the two wire harnesses from the motor.

Looking at the surface of this motor that was facing the DRUM (not the outside), you'll see two small pieces clipped onto it, toward the bottom.

The sensor you are looking to replace is the one that looks like a kitchen magnet.

It is attached by small clips. You'll see how it goes on. It's easy to remove.

Go to google and search for part number 6501KW2002A.

This will bring up an LG sensor assembly.

Double check with the supplier that this is the sensor for your appliance.

When you receive the sensor, simply reverse steps 1 through 5.

Once re assembled, try the machine again.

If still the same after this you'll need to replace the motor and/or control board.

LE fault code for LG WD-1019bd washer

I found that in winter time not a problem with my LG front loader, but when the temperature went over 30 Celsius the problem came back and intermittent like yours did, there was also an unusual noise coming from the machine.
What I did to fix the problem was to remove the stator and place it in the freezer for about half an hour or so, I also cleaned any minor dust and grit from both the Stator magnets and the Stator drum, replaced it still very cold and now it works well with no more unusual noise and the outside temperature has no more bearing on the machine not spinning this day!
I hope this helps!

LE fault code for LG WD-1019bd washer

Usually it is the stator at fault with an LE error. I would make sure the cable between the stators windings and hall sensor are ok back to the main control board also give the wires a good tug sometimes the copper breaks inside the wiring insulation at the white connection blocks. Check to make sure theres nothing got trapped inbetween the drum and tub this can lock the drum up and give the fault. After checking all the above i would think it would either be a faulty stator or the main control board has failed. Hope this helps.

Lg WM12225 wasahing machine.Error code LE shows.The drum does not turn but stutters.Is it 1.A faulty module 2.Faulty rotor sensor 3.Faulty stator

LE is an error code for the stator. Rare occasions it is the PCB as well. The stator sensor is only there for the PCB to know what direction the rotor is turning.
