Question about LG WM0642H Front Load
It clicks when turned on, then a hum like it wants to run, then nothing.
Turn off your water supply, disconnect the hoses from the washer itself, where the hoses connect is two non removable plastic screens. They are most likely clogged. What i usually do is put a mop bucket on the floor below the ports and then slowly turn on the cold water and use it to wash the debris out. After you do that hook everything back up and she should work fine.

Testimonial: "Sorry it took so long to get back to you, but we were out of town and just got back today. I tried what you suggested and cleaned the screens really well. All back together and the same thing happened. Tried to reset and this didn't help either. I do appreciate the suggestion... thanks"

Hard call, double check the outlet to make sure it is good, take off the top lid. 2 screws at the back then push it back.
Check to see if you have voltage once the line has gone through the noise filter. If no power there, you have a bad filter. If you have filter, see if you can see a red led light on the main board. no then it is a bad board. If there is a light then then check to make sure it is not a loose connection.. Make sure all your connections are good to the front display.
After all that, if it still isn't working then it goes back to the main board.
tricky one there.

"LE" code Stator/Motor Error.
It was a simple fix and only cost $17.68 at PartStore.com no affiliation.
Hall Sensor 6501KW2001A
Here is the Service Manual
Bonus, it actually completes a wash cycle and does not stick at 6 minutes, drying forever.
Freakin service tech stated it was the Power Control Board, IDIOT!
While I was in there, I cleaned out the heater blower assembly and sensors. They were full of caked on lint and the sensors had debris all over them.
Also cleaned out all the lint and debris around the rubber seal, this will eliminate those annoying mildew oders.
Hope this helps someone, Happy New Year!

I had the same problem and it was a bad sensor assembly (#6501KW2002A). You can order
it from an online electronics store (www.mcminone.com). Cost is approx. $20.
I fixed it based on a thread from 2007:
But, here's what I did:
1. Unplug the machine.
2. Take off the back plate that has 4 small screws.
3. Unscrew the big bolt in the middle.
4. Take off the hubcap looking part the bolt was securing.
5. Unclip the two sets of wires on the bottom of the circle you are looking at
(the set of wires to the right are connected to the sensor assembly you want to replace).
6. Unscrew the 6 smaller bolts to take off the circular piece that the sensor assembly is snapped to.
7. Mark with a pen where the sensor attaches so you know where to snap the new one.
8. Unclip the old sensor assembly and clip on the new one

First try unplugging the machine for a few minutes and then retry a cycle. 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!
