Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

LE code comes on for past 7 months. Have onely been able to get a few loads done in 7 months. Service repair men have been here 4 times. LG gives them their opinion and after $400 in repairs the problem still exists. The Hall sensor replacment did not work. After hard wiring some plug it worked for a couple of loads and then same problem. All customer support people have the same speech and no one cares that we have a $1300 machine ( 4 years old) $400 in repairs that did not do anything. They do not know what is worng and because we are out of warranty, they think we should get a new machine. We have over $1700 dollars invested in a machine that we were told is terrific and would last a long long time. We have spent hours on the phone trying to get some sort of help and they just don't care about anyof this because it is "out of warranty" We have been paying and paying. We are at the point of reporting this to the comsumer reporters and all else who CARE! Would love to hear if others have had this problem or experiance with the LG company.

This is a recurring problem with the LG machine. Typically the problem is caused by a faulty hall sensor. The hall sensor is easily replaced. You will have to remove the rotor and stator to access the hall sensor. When replacing the rotor, you will probably need an assistant hold the drum while you push the rotor onto the shaft, otherwise the drum may move forward enough to make replacing the bolt difficult. The drum should also be held while the bolt is tightened.

Before you would replace the hall sensor, check the connector on the main board. It's the red connector closest to the heat sink. Pull the connector off and verify that the board is receiving the signal from the sensor.

I am sorry to hear about the problem that you are having and hope that this information helps you. Like I said, this seems to be a common problem on these washers, but it is usually corrected by replacing the hall sensor. Hope things work out for you and best wishes.

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

Le solution!

Call out a qualified Service Technician. This may not be the only problem with your machine. An experienced Tech can spot impending failure of other items while doing an inspection and giving you a quote for repair, just for the cost of a Service Call.

Model LGWM2277H purchased 2005 - Since 3/19/10 LE Code Continues


Hi,


LE code stands for locked motor error. When this error code appears in your front load washer it indicates a fault in the motor unit.

1 . Check the connections to the Coil/Stator at the rear of the unit possibly it should be something like a broken wire.

2 . Coil/Stator Assembly will be defective preventing the drive to operate.You should go for a replacement of that assembly.


Thank you !!

ERROR CODE LE ON LG FRONT LOAD WASHER


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.

We have an LG front loading washer. We first


This could be a bad hall sensor or even a bad motor. The motor is warrantied for 7 years but, you need to call an LG authorized service center and provide proof of purchase.

Sub Symptom LE error code

Question Locked motor error code.

Answer LE error code: This indicates a locked motor condition. Please check the following conditions. Large loads of laundry can put a strain on the motor causing the LE error code. Try removing some clothing and restart. Excessive suds can cause the LE error code. Make sure the customer is using an HE (High Efficiency) detergent. They should decrease the amount of detergent until the machine washes without suds. A few bubbles can be expected. Areas that have �soft� water will usually need to use less detergent. If you suspect that excessive suds are the problem, let the machine stand for 30 min (motor cool down) and then run a rinse and spin cycle before restarting the load. If these directions are followed and the code persists, the machine will likely need service. .
