LE = locked rotor. Replacing most common problem (hall effect sensor) didn't work.

1. Is rotor really locked?
2. Does control board simply think rotor is locked?
3. Is wiring good?
4. Did you install a defective sensor?
5. Is circuitry on control board bad, and reading sensor wrong?
6. Do you know any good repair people who are good with high tech? I do. . . ME!

Good luck.

My lg front load washer WM2016CW wont spin on spin cycle

LE is caused by one of two things
1. Using regular detergent, not HE detergent, oversudsing confuses sensors and you get the code or
2. (Most likely- the position sensor also known as the HALL sensor is bad and needs to be replaced. Easy fix. Part under $20.

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

Some cycles work but not consistently so oe error occurs repeatedly and le occurs every day for last year with the door. But now can't do wash so have done everything from checking all fitlers, clogs,...

That would be the first part to replace. The hall sensor is located in the motor and it's not too difficult to replace. You will need a 17mm socket to remove the center bolt holding the rotor and a 10mm socket to remove the 6 bolts holding the stator assembly. Good luck.

The LE error is a Locked Motor Error.

Cause: 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.
Or the Actual main motor is defective.

Replaced sensor on motor and ran find empty put cloths in washer runs for a bit then le code comes up help

LE means a locked motor error. sounds like you already replaced the hall sensor so the next thing to look at is the Stator Assembly it may have an open circuit.

LE is a locked motor error. Not to worry as 95% of the time it is just a bad hall sensor (the motor position sensor). For your model the part number is 6501KW2002A.
