SOURCE: Error code LE

Suggestion: Your wash could be overloaded; put in clothes within machine's capacity. What is written in your manual's max clothes capacity. If your heater is on; switch off machine and wall plug. Reset the machine with the heater on minimum & resume your normal cycle.

Just unplugging the washer and resetting it solved the problem

Greetings jannd,

The message "LE" can indicate that the thermal overload protection circuit in the motor has been tripped. The remedy for this can be to allow the washer to stand for 30 minutes to allow the motor to cool, then restart the cycle. If the LE error code still appears, unplug the washer and call for service. Keep in mind that this unit carries a 7 year warranty on the motor also.

I hope this helps!
Best regards,

Dorothy

SOURCE: Fault DE ( motor overload?)

DE error code stands for "Drain Error" resulting from no or too long a drain time. Open access door at lower left on front of machine. If small hose is not plugged, you can drain the remaining water out of it, then remove the large screw thing there. (it's the filter.) Clean it and replace. Test. If filter was clear, you may need to replace pump motor.

I have a Kenmore front washer model number 41272210 that is flashing an error code CL what does this mean


fault indicates that there was an instantaneous current spike at the motor windings in the washer. This could be caused by overloading the washer. It can also be caused by problems with the drive motor, thermal protector or the motor controller.

E8 front loader washing machines


OVER CURRENT ERROR - Display shows 8E.IPM fault signal (this is caused by the overload of the MICOM INTO during motor action).
IPM: Integrated power module. The IPM controls the motor.
If the fault (low signal) happens to be sensed even once during the washing/rinsing stage, the motor stops immediately. However, during the dehydrating stage the signal is to be sensed, when the number of signals reads more than 6 per 500ms during the Washing or Rinsing cycle action.
If the motor stops working, in one direction ten times, "8E" Error is displayed.
During dehydrating, when the overload is sensed, the motor stops working at once and then feeds back to the initial stage of the dehydration unbalance sensing. When the feed back has occcurred twice, Error "8E" is displayed during the dehydrating unbalance sensing, No error happens by overload sensing. When it happens at more than 800rpm, the process is stopped compulsorily. Power Switch OFF can clear the overload error.

HOWEVER, the UK White goods website says:

E8
Temp too high on low temp washesNormally this will be the wash temperature thermistor or NTC that's faulty, please contact us if you need the thermistor with the model and serial number.

Hi my LG washing machine (WD-80485NP) has stopped working since this morning. The error code shown is: CL Any idea what that means?


The "Cl" fault indicates that there was an instantaneous current spike of 26 amps at the motor windings in the washer. This could be caused by overloading the washer. It can also be caused by problems with the drive motor, thermal protector or the motor controller.

You should have been able to clear the display by pressing the STOP/CANCEL button.

The CA indicates that an average current limit on the drive motor has been exceeded (see images below). This is an extremely hard problem to diagnose and one that I've seen cause the best service techs to pull their hair out. It can be one of so many different components, and you have to catch conditions just right to have half a chance to discover which one it is.

Try removing some of the clothes; this could be caused by overloading. You could have a mechanical failure in the universal joint, wiring harness, the drive motor, central control, or the motor controller.

Machine won't work it says C1 message. pls advice.


On Whirlpool Calypso washers that is probably not a "1" but is the letter i. The code "CI" is the fault code that indicates "Instantaneous Current Limit". Instantaneous current trip occurs if there is a spike of 26 amps instantly at the motor windings.

This may signify problems with the drive motor, thermal protector (fuse), or motor controller. Overloading the washer may cause this condition. Press stop/cancel to clear the display. Hope this helped you.
