Question about LG WM-1480FHD Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Shows "LE" in display.

Stops, several bleeps then shows "LE" in display, & shuts down, even if machine is VERY lightly loaded. Sometimes works OK with bigger load, sometimes goes part way through, other times, stops during initial filling, sometimes goes right through until final spin. Does not seem to be load related - now. Will repower up after mains removed but sometimes fault shows, other times goes right through with no further problem. Machine is 4 years old but not had heavy useage (once or twice per week).

    I have a wm-1480fhd doing the same. It stops full of water on final rinse, shows 'LE' in display and beeps. Switch it off and on, do a rinse program and it will finish the cycle. I have found that if I make sure the house hot water tank is hot and feeds the machine with hot water then the washing machine works perfectly. Anybody have any ideas which bit is broken?

"LE" error means the motor has overloaded. There is no way to fix this yourself. You will probably need a new motor. Call for an engineer.

The led display shows UE and stops

Try redistributing the clothes in the drum and turn it back on. If the load is too out of balance, the machine shuts down.

2005/2006 model LG Troon washing machine. Washing cycle ok, spin cycle stops incomplete and LE shows on didgital display.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

LE error in your LG front load washer is displayed when either the motor is not working or the control board thinks that the motor is locked up. A Hall Effect sensor is used in these washers which monitors the speed and direction of the motor and then forwards this information to the control board. Hope you understand by now that this LE error is displayed when there is an issue with the motor or when the Hall Effect sensor sends wrong signal to the control. Conclusion is you'll have to check both motor and hall sensor and replace the part# that is bad, usually I have seen the sensor going bad. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Lg washer shows up side down F E code

No, this is not the same as the LE code. The FE code indicates an overflow error or condition. The things to check out would be the drain and the drain line to make sure there are no kinks in it. The drain hose can get clogged with sludge and sometimes a hot wash with a 1/2 cup of vinegar will clean out the sludge. If that doesn't work, I would take a look at the pump to make sure it is not clogged with anything and that the pump impellers are good. Take a flashlight and look into the suction port of the pump. Look for any broken or missing impeller blades. If any are broken or missing or if the impeller will not move freely, the pump would need to be replaced. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Shows "LE" in display.

Machine has a bad motor or "stator" on this machine. It is a direct drive winding on the back of the machine. Remove the back panel, the one bolt removes the rotor then you will see the stator winding, replace it and your good to go.
