Question about LG Washing Machines
The LE alert popped up while washing a load. Is there a easy solution to this alert.
First try unplugging the machine for a few minutes and then retry a cycle. LE can be a too heavy a load, or too off balanced for a high spin speed. Retry adjusting the load size / spin speed. 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!
