    We had the same LG washer for 2 years and we just got this "LE" code a couple days ago. It was due to too much load. We tried the unplug / reset / plug back in many times. We also called the service, nothing works. Finally, we were referred to a local service center. They immediately told us that it is the sensor problem and we need to have it replaced. The part costs less than $30, but the labor and service change is $260! We should never buy this LG junk. We are seriously thinking of throwing it away. But it would be a tremendous burden to the environment.

    Have had this machine for 1 1/2 years. Just randomly got the LE code yesterday. It was a small load. I tried taking some clothes out and just putting on spin to clear water. The code kept coming up.Now machine has wet clothes with wate sitting in it..... Machine is very heavy so I need to get several people to help try to get to the plug to unplug it. I doubt that will resolve the issue. I will call for service but know it will cost a lot. A machine this age should have no problems especially at the price they charge.

    Also have problem with mildew smell, nothing works. I would never purchase htis machine again but am not in the financial position to replace it or I would.

    Yes; we have this same problem. We have had that same code come up several times before; but unplugged it and plugged it back in and it has returned to working normal after that (luckily the plug is not hard to access). However; it occurred again this weekend and is not starting back up...it sounds like the drum is stuck (it's trying to spin, but won't)...I hear a semi-high pitched sound a couple times as it tries to move, but it can't and the LE code comes on. We've only had the machine about 2 years!!

    I have the same problem, LE error code. Everything has been working fine for a couple of years but we only use the machine as a secondary laundry unit about 1-2x a month. I don't have a problem fixing a sensor rather than wait for a service tech but I would like a parts breakdown if available.

    We had the washer 3 years. We were washing a light load. We got the LE code. We called LG, they told us to unplug the unit,wait 30 minutes press and hold the start button for 15 seconds. Then wait a half hour and plug it in. Then set it to no spin to drain the water. The water drained and we tried to run a load with one towel. We got the LE code again. We then tried the above again with on success. I called LG for service, it turns out there is no service in my area. I am 30 minutes south of a major population center.

    I asked LG to send some to get the unit, they refused. They told me to take the unit 75 miles to the nearest repair center.

    I called a junk man and he hauled it off.

Press "end of cycle". Plug off the wall. Code can be an indication of several issues. The most common cause is over-sudsing in the machine. Overloading the wash with too much laundry may also cause the LE error code. Lastly, a breakdown in the signal between the microprocessor and the motor may cause that error code. This can occur if there is a loose wire, see that all wires are tightened..........

I tried the Solution #1 and by unplugging my LG for 15 minutes and removing the water from the machine, it is now running fine.

Just had the LE code flashing on my LG front load washer. Washer was at the normal water level. Tried to start several times, no luck. I then tried premm's sugestion and turned the machine off and unpluged it for a minute then plugged it back in....the machine started right up and cycled normally.

Thank you premm!!!!

I've got an LE code on the front of my washer


This error can sometimes present because of a miscommunication between the control panel and the wash motor. In this instance, the washer simply needs to be reset.

Step 1: Unplug the washing machine.
Step 2: While the washer remains unplugged, press and hold the [Start/Pause] button on the front panel for 5 seconds.
Step 3: Plug the unit back in, and run a rinse and spin cycle to test if the LE code is cleared.

Are there soap suds visible in the drum?
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.


Hope this helps.

It stops mid cycle and at the digital display it flashes " LE " . What is wrong????


The 'LE' error message indicates the control board has detected that the motor is either not turning, or has locked up for some reason. Monitoring the motor is the job of the hall effect sensor board which constantly determines the direction and speed of the motor and feeds that information back to the control board. If there is a problem between what the motor should be doing and what the hall effect sensor says the motor is doing, the 'LE' will be displayed and the cycle will be stopped.
Motor lock can be caused by several things from a loose connector, to a bad motor, or even the hall effect sensor failing or dislodging from it's mount. Any one or more of these components could have caused this error.
This error can sometimes present because of a miscommunication between the control panel and the wash motor. In this instance, the washer simply needs to be reset.


Step 1: Unplug the washing machine.

Step 2: While the washer remains unplugged, press and hold the [Start/Pause] button on the front panel for 5 seconds.

Step 3: Plug the unit back in, and run a rinse and spin cycle to test if the LE code is cleared.

the valves will be turned off and the error code will flash.
Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.

Machine won't spin...everything else working


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 !!

Stops and flash le code


Le is a locked motor error.  Sometimes glass, or food gets stuck in the bottom of the sump jamming the motor.  Take it apart from the top to check for clogs.  When you get to the impeller the screw might be reverse thread.  If there is nothing stopping the motor, you will need to replace the motor.

LE code flashing on WM1812CW


LE code is overload on motor. This unit actually has a magneto and stator. This is what needs to be replaced. Usually find a magnet cracked.
