The Lr code is a lock rotor error. This is not great news. You can do some electrical troubleshootingMy washer runs fine until it has about 15min left. - 2.gif and look for burnt or damaged wiring. This problem is sometimes, but not always accompanied by a burnt fuse. The wiring harness can be checked for any indication of a short in the wiring somewhere, but Maytag had some issues with this machine. It generally means that a new motor and control board are in your future. Sorry to say that, but Maytag upgraded the motor and control board because the problem was so prevalent a few years back. Hope that I'm wrong, but there it is. I have heard of a bad ground at the water inlet valve causing this code and it can be checked out, but given the history of this particular machine, I am not confident that this is the problem, but it is worth checking out. Anyway, I am sorry for the problem you are having and hope that this helped. Best wishes.

Front load washer LG wm2140cw with error code up side down FE. Any ideas what this means? Will start to run then error code shows up and it stops.


A tE error code on the display of the washer indicates a heating error, usually caused by a faulty thermistor.
  1. Unplug the washer from the power outlet for 10 seconds.
  2. Plug the washer back in and press the POWER button and then the SPIN SPEED button until No Spin is selected. Press the START/PAUSE button.
  3. Once the washer has drained, restart the wash cycle.
  4. If the tE error code appears again, close the water taps and unplug the washer. The washer will require repair service.

What does the code Lr mean at the end of the cycle and door remains locked


According to the manual Lr means 'Motor not running properly' and it says you should call for service.

You may be able to open the door by pressing the start/pause button and waiting for a minute or so.
