    I'll pop the back cover off and check your recommendations. Unit does not even light up when the power button is pressed. Wondering if there is a reset of some type?


  • hdrock206 Dec 13, 2009

    Thank for the pointers, popped the back cover and the lid off. checked all the connectors. power is available at the source. no power or lights at the controls.
    time for a service tech?

Hello there:
this LE means this
LE Locked motor error. Cause: The connector (3-pin), male,white) in the motor harness is not connected to the connector. (3-pin,female,white) of stator assembly. Or the electrical contact between the connectors. (3-pin,male,white) in the motor harness and 4-pin,female,white connector in the main PWB assembly is bad or unstable. Or the motor harness between the stator assembly and main PWB assembly is cut (open circuit) Or the hall sensor is out of order/defective.

    hello again also here are some more things to check
    there is a relay for the start switch that will fail and when it does
    it will shut down the entire control panel What the repair men do to
    test this is to bypass the relay and using a small jumper wire with
    aligator clips on each end of the wire and 9 out of 10 time the machine
    will come back to life. Then they replace the relay by rewiring in a
    new one about a 25 dollar part and they charge youabout 100 dollars for
    the service call so what yo might want to do is to trouble shoot the
    start switch relay circuit ok? and save your self alot of money in the long run by repairing this your self.
    Also check the door switch to see if it is any good ok

My name is raza. i have west point washing machine model no 1225tl , Fix error LE is coming. please tell me about this urgent.

An LE error code on the washer's display indicates that the motor is locked, possibly due to a heavy wash load.
Large and heavy sized loads will put a strain on the motor, causing the LE code to occur. Performing a reset on the washer will normally resolve this error.
To reset the washing machine:
  1. Press POWER to turn the washer off
  2. Unplug the washer from the power outlet. If the outlet cannot be reached, turn the circuit breaker to the unit off.
  3. With the power disabled to the washer, press and hold the START/PAUSE button for 5 seconds.
  4. Plug the washer back in, or turn the circuit breaker back on.
The washer should now be reset and the LE code cleared. If washing a heavy or large load, reduce the load size and attempt to restart the cycle.
Note: For your safety and to preserve your warranty, if the issue persists, LG recommends that all repairs are performed by an Authorized Service Center.

Le error is a motor error code. The motor error could be caused by several things including : motor, bearings , rps sensor and wiring and in some cases all. continued use with this error could have taken out your mother board.

We finished a load of laundry and noticed it was still pretty damp after the wash had been completed. Upon attemping to do another load the washer will no longer work at all...Bit of a problem here any...

Are there any error codes at all displayed on the screen? Basic troubleshooting for this unit will be first to check to make sure the circut breaker is not tripped in the main breaker box, make sure if you have any GFI power outlets in the home that they are not tripped (they are normally near sinks or in bathrooms and have the "test" and "reset" buttons on them. They can sometimes be wired into a nearby washer outlet.) Make sure to not use any extension cords on the washer, and last of all unplug the washer for a few mintues and plug it back in to see if that will reset it. Sometimes unplugging it can reset any errors. Please repost if this does not fix the problem or if you find any error codes.

Model LGWM2277H purchased 2005 - Since 3/19/10 LE Code Continues


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 !!

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.

Product Laundry Washer
Symptom Error Codes
Sub Symptom LE error code
Question Locked motor error code.
LE error code: This indicates a locked motor condition. Please check the following conditions. Large loads of laundry can put a strain on the motor causing the LE error code. Try removing some clothing and restart. Excessive suds can cause the LE error code. Make sure the customer is using an HE (High Efficiency) detergent. They should decrease the amount of detergent until the machine washes without suds. A few bubbles can be expected. Areas that have �soft� water will usually need to use less detergent. If you suspect that excessive suds are the problem, let the machine stand for 30 min (motor cool down) and then run a rinse and spin cycle before restarting the load. If these directions are followed and the code persists, the machine will likely need service. .
