SOURCE: LE Error Code- I replaced the Hall sensor & the problem returned

You need to replace the motor that goes on the hall sensor. We've had the same issue. What kind of soap are you using and are you only using 2 Tablespoons of detergent no matter what the load size? The only reason these usually go bad is becasue your not using HE soap or your using too much soap.

Ours goes bad becasue we can't use any HE detergent becasue my son is highly illergic to all brands of HE. I have no choice but to use regular soap. But we have had to replace the hall sensor twice in 3 years.

As long as that Tide HE is not 2x or 3x concentrated, that would be the maximum amount of detergent for a large, heavily soiled load. Lighter soiled and/or smaller loads should be about 1 tablespoon. If 2x concentrate soap, use only half that. The reason this could cause an LE error is that suds between the inner and outer drum will cause excessive drag on the inner tub, with the possible result of an LE error. I'd try to run a load on Sanitary, heavy soil level, with no clothes, and a washer cleaner such as Affresh, Washer Magic, Whirlaway hot tub cleaner, Smellywasher cleaner, or Tide washer cleaner to remove any possible build up of soap residue from the outer tub area.
Sometimes, cycle selection/ loading level/ load type can cause LE errors. 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.
Another possiblility would be a loose electrical connection dealing with the Hall sensor, at the sensor, the control board, or (much more unlikely) the wire connecting them.
On rare occasion, the main control board can be at fault, but generally, replacing the Hall sensor does take care of the problem. (over 90% of the time)

SOURCE: Have LG WM2277 with constant LE code. Already

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

'LE' on LG's indicates Lock Error indicating there is a problem with the door lock. Either the locking solenoid or the door lock sensor is malfunctioning and requires attention.
Hope this helps ;-0)

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 on washer. What can I do without a tech?


The *dreaded* "LE" error is overwhelmingly caused or triggered by incorrect type detergent **OR** too much *HE* detergent (a special low sudsing detergent).
In all LG washers-when too much detergent has been used-this will cause the "LE" error to be displayed & the wash cycle will be interrupted. Unplugging the washer for more than one minute will cause the MAIN BOARD (computer) to power down and re-boot when the washer has been plugged back in.
On LG washers built *before* 2008-after several "LE" error events-the error *cannot* be reset by unplugging the washer. This indicates that the HALL EFFECT SENSOR has failed and will need to be replaced.
On all LG washers built during and after 2008-a more robust resistor was used in the HALL EFFECT SENSORS-which eliminated damage caused by higher electrical loads placed upon the sensors due to oversudsing. HALL EFFECT SENSORS virtually never fail in 2008 and newer LG washers but the "LE" error will still occur if too much or the wrong type of detergent is used. This will be "resettable" by unplugging/replugging the washer.
The CORRECT amount of HE (High Efficiency) detergent to be used is as follows:
HE : (2) Tablespoons Per Wash Load
HE 2X : (1) Tablespoon
HE 3X : (1) Teaspoon
USE THESE AMOUNTS RELIGIOUSLY-NO EXCEPTIONS-IN ALL FRONT LOAD WASHERS WITH 3.0 cu ft DRUMS AND LARGER

WHAT IS THE SYMPTOM "LE"


A common reason for an LE code is choosing a high spin speed on a bulky/ very heavy load. Try a cycle with a lower spin speed. If you still get the LE code, especially if it does not even do the wash tumbling, then replace the Hall sensor on the motor.

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.

Washer starts then after few minutes stops and beeps with LE flashing. What does this mean?


LE = Load Error. If you do not have an unusually heavy or unbalanced load, replace the HALL sensor on the motor. Remove back access panel, remove bolt from center of motor. Remove rotor. Remove bolts holding motor coils to machine. Unplug wires. Un-clip sensor, replace with new sensor, and re-assemble. This is a rather easy repair.

LE alert on read out. Is there a reset or something


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!
