Unplug remove the back. Loosen large bolt in center of rotor. Slide rotor off of spline. Look at the stator with the windings. At the bottom of the stator where the harness plugs in is the hall sensor. Remove the 10 mm bolts holding the stator on and don't let it drop. Un plug the plug and snap the hall sensor off and snap the new one on. Re assemble.

I have an lg wm2277h washing machine, i keep getting LE error at display how can i fix this?

This is caused by a bad Hall Sensor. when it is bad it tells the computer that there is too much load on the motor, therefore giving you the LE code, otherwise known as a (Locked Rotor Error). It is cheap and fairly easy to replace, the part can be ordered at Sears Parts, using your model number. For information on how to perform your repair, please reply.

Thanks, Repairman45

Le error code what is this

this code means a Locked Motor Error. you need to check the hall sensor it may be defective and you may also have to replace the Stator Assembly. this will require an appliance service call by a qualified LG technician.

5 year old LG WD-1219BD has error code LE, ''overload in motor''


LE is a very bad error unfortunately. It means that your motor communication is being lost. Generally on these LG washers it means that you need to replace the motor sensor. You will have to take the back panel off so that you can access the motor, remove the pulley and take the motor off, there is a little plastic sensor that clips onto the edge of the motor. The sensor is not sold separately from the motor so you will have to replace the motor unfortunately.

Part would cost you around $120 plus labor.

This is a common error on LG. Better to repair and use it or fix it yourself.

Hope i helped you,

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Error code LE on front load LG washer

This is a motor fault code. Sometimes it can be just a communication error, in which case you can try unplugging the machine for 20 minutes and see if it clears the problem up. More likely it is a fault in the motor itself. The most likely culprit would be a defective hall sensor. I will attach a photo of the sensor for you to see what it looks like. To access and replace the hall sensor, you have to remove the rotor and stator at the motor. Before going to this trouble, try the unplugging thing first and also check the connector on the main control board. It is the red connector next to the heat sink2.gif. Using a multimeter, check that the board is receiving a signal from the sensor. Hope this helps and best wishes.

LG Tromm WM2277H washer won't start after tripping breaker

no fuses only control boards.with power off pull the top off and check wires at your power supply board(not the one with buttons). Look for burn or damaged wires. no luck with that, will probably need power board(usually the board that goes out). Call LG and speak to cust service....sometimes will cover the board.

Le error code on my LG washer.

On LG Washers the code LE is for motor overload protection.
Ensure that you are not overloading washer, make sure to clean pump by draining at little door at lower left corner(check manual for instructions), unplug for 30 minutes to reset, now try running cycle again. if it fails again something else is causing the motor to work to hard and will require a professional.

My lg wm2277h washing machine has a le error code. and where i can find the water circulation nozzle

This is the motor overload code. Most often it is caused by too much detergent. Really if you use more than a couple of tablespoons, you risk setting off this code. Anyway try unplugging the machine for five or ten minutes, then plug it back in . It should work. The techs have a series of button pushes that do the same thing followed by a too much soap lecture.

LGWM2277H LE light came on does the motor have a reset button i need to push

Hello momof3611

You said, Your LGWM2277H washer LE light flashes. Troubleshooting guide says overload in motor. Is there a reset on the motor that needs reset or does something else need done. washer was working fine until we put a big load of jeans in to wash. when we checked wash soapy water was in washer and I can't get it to rinse. drum is not turning.

If you overload, with to much clothes the weight will trigger this error your having in most washer.
Take some clothes out.

Then try this:
Unplug the washer for 5 minutes, or if you can't reach the plug, turn the breaker off for 5 minutes and then the system should reset itself!
Let me know.I'm looking right now for any reset code in the repair manual too!
Please remember to leave a rating.
