This error code indicates "locked rotor error". This can be caused by loose or corroded electrical connections at the motor or control board or by a faulty hall sensor. Unplug the washer. You can start by unplugging and reseating the electrical connections at the motor to make sure there is good contact and to clean off any corrosion build-up. Do the same for the connections at the control board. You need to remove the rotor and stator to access the hall sensor. When you get ready to install the rotor after replacing hall sensor it is best for a helper to hold the drum in place when you push the rotor onto the shaft or the drum may move forward, making it hard to replace the bolt. The drum also need to be kept from turning while the bolt is tightened. I will attach a photo of the hall sensor for reference. Remember to try and check the electrical connections first, before considering a faulty hall sensor. Pay particular attention to the connection on the main control board. It should be a red colored connector. Really sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

LE error code on my WM1814CW,it fills with water and drains but doesn't turn.


The LE code indicates a motor overload. The washer will not spin to avoid damaging the unit. First unplug the washer and let the motor cool for 30 minutes. When you plug in the washer, check if the unit has been reset.

The error often occurs if you use a non-HE detergent or too much detergent. In that case, do a Rinse and drain steps. Set the Spin Speed to No Spin by pressing that key several times. When that finishes, open the door and remove all of the clothes in the tub. Close the door and set the washer to Rinse and Spin. Run this program several times until you see no suds in the wash tub. If the LE code returns when the washer is empty, check the drain pump and filter for foreign objects. The error can also occur if you wash too many items at once or too heavy a set of items. Try doing a smaller load in the future.

If the error persists, then the tub motor, bearings, motor shaft or wiring may be damaged. Here is the parts diagram and one vendor's list of the replacement parts: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/lg-washer-parts/model-WM1814CW/3204/0153200/K0810333/00002.html . If your washer is under warranty, contact LG.

I hope this helps.

LE error code has popped up & suddenly the control lock is on, I have pressed the control lock & it counted 3,2,1 & nothing happens, won't unlock & LE is still there


if the door locks and wont unlock
LE error
then your machine still has water in it from the last spin/ wash

i think its a blocked up waste outlet
or the pump is blocked up

you need to check the machine is draining correctly and in a timely manner.,..
or it will fail
you need to fully drain the machine then turn off the mains
wait 5 mins and the door will then open
then check the drainage...

LE LIGHT IS APPEAR


Over-sudsing is the main cause of LE error codes. Using non-HE (high efficiency) detergents or too much detergent will cause stress on the motor. In addition, detergent residue can also cause leaking and odor. Follow these steps to resolved an LE error code caused by over-sudsing.

Step 1: Unplug the washer and allow the unit to sit for 30 minutes to give the suds time to dissolve.

Step 2: Plug the washer back in and press [Power] to turn on the washer.

Step 3: Do not choose a washing cycle. Press the [Spin Speed] key until "No Spin" is selected.

Step 4: Press [Start/Pause] to begin a drain only cycle.

Step 5: After the drain only cycle has completed, remove the clothing items from the machine. Turn the power back on and select [Rinse and Spin] and then press [Start/Pause]. This will remove excess soap suds and light residue from the drum. Repeat this step until no visible suds are in the drum of the washer.

Has a large load size been used with a gentle wash setting?
Gentle wash cycles such as Perm Press, Delicates, Hand Wash, and Wool/Silk should only be used for smaller loads. Because the cycles are more gentle while tumbling and spinning, too many items in the drum can register as an issue with the motor. In this instance reset the unit and run a test rinse and spin cycle.


Has the washer been overloaded?
Single bulky items or large loads can add extra weight to the drum and place stress on the motor. Remove some of the clothing and restart. If the issue is still present after a few items have been removed, unplug the washer for 30 minutes to allow the motor to cool and then restart the cycle.

How to fix error f 54 p on my whirlpool topload cabrio washing machine


Hi and weclome to FixYa, I am Kelly
An F54 code is a motor over current fault. This is caused by a severe load on the motor or a bad motor bearing.

To remove the error press Pause/Cancel twice. Before removing the error.. try and find out why the motor is hard to turn. There may be an article of clothing stuck at the top of the inner tub or between the inner and outer tub. (
If the unit has previously had an ld code (long Drain) this can also cause high motor currents if the water level switch allows the washer to spin when not completely empty. Usually an ld code is associated with something stuck in the pump / pump inlet or possibly a bad pump.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

My clothes were in the washer and when I went down to check there was an error code. LE The clothes were still wet, and appeared to not have gone through the rinse cycle.


The LE is caused by over sudsing OR clothing trapped between the tubs. The LE: hall sensor shorted/destroyed from sudslock or clothes between tub. Correct the issue and party on.

LG errors:
IE: Water level (246) was not reached in 8 minutes
UE: Imbalance: Load too, small too large
OE: Drain problem took longer than 10 minutes to drain
FE: Overflow issue drain pump running to comp
PE: pressure sensor (sensor out)
dE: door error. open door. switch is out
LE (with a a slash in the
middle of L. Upside down F) Thermistor out
CE: Over amping Too much soap wrong soap
LE: hall sensor shorted/destroyed from sudslock
bE: Ball sensor loose connection/out of order
EE: eeprom out test mode only
PF: power failure momentary interuption of shocktricity

LG LE error. WM2277HW Have replaced the Hall Sensor and ran


As long as that Tide HE is not 2x or 3x concentrated, that would be the maximum amount of detergent for a large, heavily soiled load. Lighter soiled and/or smaller loads should be about 1 tablespoon. If 2x concentrate soap, use only half that. The reason this could cause an LE error is that suds between the inner and outer drum will cause excessive drag on the inner tub, with the possible result of an LE error. I'd try to run a load on Sanitary, heavy soil level, with no clothes, and a washer cleaner such as Affresh, Washer Magic, Whirlaway hot tub cleaner, Smellywasher cleaner, or Tide washer cleaner to remove any possible build up of soap residue from the outer tub area.
Sometimes, cycle selection/ loading level/ load type can cause LE errors. 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.
Another possiblility would be a loose electrical connection dealing with the Hall sensor, at the sensor, the control board, or (much more unlikely) the wire connecting them.
On rare occasion, the main control board can be at fault, but generally, replacing the Hall sensor does take care of the problem. (over 90% of the time)

LE error


I tried a solution I found elsewhere - worked great. I had turned my drum enough to cause the display to turn on (a glitch in their program, I think), then I got the LE code on the next cycle.

Unplug for 10 minutes. Turn back on and press the Rinse & Spin button, then set Spin Speed to No Spin. Run this cycle, which should work fine. Afterwards, you should be able to run your machine as normal. If this doesn't work, replacing the Hall sensor would be the next step.

If you have a moldy smell, run a no-clothes cycle with some liquid bleach. Should clear that up.
