Question about LG WM0642H Front Load

1 Answer

Le code Repairman states that the main pcb or the wired plug is to blame. Change pcb first and then harness if problem persists. Quite expensive for both since i just changed the pcb for the motor. Is it worth the money

The LE code denotes problems with the motor and not the PCB

SOURCE: The Fault Code

The code LE indicates a "locked motor error".
Possible causes: The connector (3-pin), male,white) in the motor harness is not connected to the connector. (3-pin,female,white) of stator assembly. Or the electrical contact between the connectors. (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 stator assembly and main PWB assembly is cut (open circuit) Or the hall sensor is out of order/defective. These are some of the potential causes of this code. Really sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

Good afternoon, My Brother sewing mach. has a error of f7 what does this mean. The model is Cs80


According to http://www.sewingmachinesplus.com/brother-sewing-machine-error-code-f7.php

the meaning and answers are as follows...
Q: What does F7 error message mean?
A: Speed VR disconnected

Q: How to fix F7 error message?
A: Unplug the sewing machine and reconnect any loose wires on the SSVR PCB assembly and the main PCB assembly. If the wiring connections are okay, replace the SSVR PCB assembly. If the problem persists, replace the main PCB assembly.

Wm2077cw le error is there a reset button for that code


Your LG washing machine's motor is controlled by the main circuit board. This is the brain of your washing machine. Depending on the selected program and which cycle is currently running, the PCB will tell the motor which speed to run at and which direction to turn. The Hall Effect sensor on the main circuit board is fed operational feedback from the motor. If there is any difference between what the motor should be doing and what it is actually doing - the appliance will stop operating and display an "LE" error.
For example: if the main circuit board tells the motor to rotate clockwise at a certain speed and the motor doesn't start, the monitoring sensor will relay this inactivity to the main PCB and a "LE" error will persist. The same error would be displayed if the motor rotates in the wrong direction or runs at the wrong speed. It should be evident there are many faults that could produce the "LE" error code. Failure of one of the major components or a fault in the monitoring and feedback loop, could all lead to this problem. It is true however, some faults occur more regularly than others. Test for the most common causes of failure, eliminate them, and move on to more unlikely faults.
Many causes for the "LE" error are thought to stem from LG's manufacturing process. Many customers found the wiring damaged or completely severed in their washing machine's motor drive and feedback loop. If the wires were installed too close to a moving part, they may be vulnerable to mechanical wear once the machine starts to operate. A washing machine vibrates a lot during a spinning cycle, so it is conceivable wires could be damaged in this way. Check the cables feeding the motor for any obvious signs of damage. If you cannot see any problem, disconnect those wires and check for conductivity with a multi-meter. There should be almost no resistance detected in the wire.
If you find a damaged wire, replace it and ensure the new wire is well out of the way of any moving parts. If the wire is faultless you will have to move on and continue fault finding. Try and turn the motor's rotor by hand, if there is any real friction or if the rotor is seized - you will have to replace the motor. Faultless wiring and a washing machine motor - with the existence of an "LE" error code, indicates a fault in the main system board. It should be noted though; this is unlikely to be the cause of the problem. Almost all "LE" errors indicate faulty wiring - so ensure you have properly checked this before installing a new PCB.

IR330, step 1- this Error is the main motor fails to rotate normally, does the main motor rotate until E010 turn on? if yes go step 5, if no step 2- harness wiring connectors around the main motor normal? if no correct the wiring, if yes step 3- does the voltage of J102-B12 on the controller pcb change to 0 VDC while the main motor is rotating?, if no replace main motor ( main motor driver pcb), if yes step 4-is there 24 VDC generated between J204-3 and J204-4 on the composite power supply PCB, if no replace the composite power supply PCB, if yes step 5 is the voltage of J102-B11 on the DC controller PCB about 5 VDC during WMUP? if no replace DC controller PCB. if yes step 6- Is there continuity of the harness between the image processor PCB and DC controller PCB normal J714-A14 to J113-A7 also 714-A16 to J113-A5 if yes to if no replace the harness if yes replace the DC controller PCB and the Image processor PCB.

When i print using my docuprint 203A fuji xerox, the printout result paper was cover with black all over. what does this mean?


This is a rebadged Brother Printer.

Possible causes for a solid black output:
1 Corona failure
Is the corona wire dirty?
Clean the corona wire with the wire cleaner.

2 Corona wire broken?
Replace the drum unit

3 Are the charge electrodes between the printer body and
the drum unit dirty?
Clean both electrodes.

4 Harness connections?
Is the laser unit connected to the main PCB correctly?
Connect the harness between the laser unit and the main PCB
correctly.

5 High-voltage power supply PCB failure
Is the problem solved after replacing the high-voltage
power supply PCB?
Replace the highvoltage power supply PCB.

6 Main PCB failure
Is the problem solved after replacing the main PCB?
Replace the main PCB.

7 Laser unit failure
Is the problem solved after replacing the laser unit?
Replace the laser unit.

Good Luck!

I have and LG nodel #LDS5811ST and after ad couple of minutes it stops with the code LE showing in the time window, what does this mean!


The wire harness has probably degraded and broken inside the door panel of the unit.

This unit may need a new wire harness, Main PCB, Sump and inner door liner.
Depending on serial#

Contact LG @ 1 800 243-0000 they may help you out.

This is a known issue on older dishwashers.

What does the OE light mean, ta the machine wont drain and spin and the light keeps coming on.


Here are error codes/:

OE= PUMP BLOCKED OR WATER NOT PUMPING OUT ( LOOK FOR PROBLEM IN THE PUMP IMPELLER )

IE = NO WATER INTO APPLIANCE CHECK WATER TAPS ECT

DE = DOOR OPEN OR NOT LOCKED

UE = IMBALANCED LOAD

SE = NORMALLY MOTOR FAULT BUT COULD ALSO BE MAIN PCB FIRST CHOICE IS CHANGE MOTOR.

CE = CURRENT ERROR SHORT CIRCUIT TO MOTOR OR MAIN PCB DUFF

LE = LOCK ERROR BASICLY WIRING TO THE DOOR LOCK IS FAULTY

FE = TO MUCH WATER IN TUB

TE = TEMPRATURE ERROR NORMALLY THERMISISTER OR ELEMENT FAULT

PE = PRESSURE SWITCH FAULT
