Error code LE what does it mean


The LE error indicates that the Controller is having trouble communicating with the motor.

The most common cause for this is if something gets wedged in and the drum can't turn freely. Try turning it by hand to make sure it is free. The next most common cause is if someone spins the drum moderately fast with the washer turned off. I.e. if you give it a spin to make sure their isn't a sock stuck to the drum.. To fix this, unplug the machine and turn the drum counterclockwise 4 full rotations followed by 4 rotations clockwise at low speed. Plug it back in and see if that fixes it.

If that's not it, then there is a sensor called the Hall Sensor that could be the problem. I've never had to replace one of these and can't comment further.

LE error (checked stator and replaced HAll sensor already)


If the control board does not receive the input it will not operate does the door lock? However:
The attachment shows how to diagnose and repair a failed hall sensor, the usual cause of
an LE error code.

DO NOT replace the stator until the hall sensor has been tested. 98% of LE error codes are
caused by failed hall sensors.

[DD motor SVC check process ]

Pre Check
1) Gentle wash cycles, such as Perm Press, Delicates, Hand Wash, and Wool/Silk should only be used for
smaller loads. Because these cycles are more gentle in tumbling and spinning, putting too much in the
drum can register an issue with the motor. Remove items, reset unit and test with a Rinse/Spin cycle.
2) Don't replace the PCB when the hall sensor is replaced.
Check the hall sensor as shown in the new process.
O have a file I can send but can not upload here if you want it, contact me melissamaemartin@yahoo.com please put hall sensor in subject line. Thanks

Make sure hall sensor is snapped in to correct location and is secure. Take a look at repair videos from repairclinic.com or appliancepartspros.com for guidance. And the error code is "LE" for sure not "tE" which is sometimes confused between the two.

I got the 'LE' error code for the LG LDF6810ST dishwasher.The serial number is 604KW02152. I removed the door cover as some of the other solutions suggested, but the wires looked fine. I was...


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.

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.

Won't print - says 'paper jam 2' but no paper is stuck in machine


Paper jam 2 error code is saying the jam is in the fuser area of the machine.
You need to remove the toner cartridge, and since you said you've taken the whole thing apart, maybe try a flashlight and look for a LITTLE piece of paper that may have torn off that remains stuck around that fuser area (the fuser is the thing behind the toner that gets hot-- so be careful -- but look in the corners and anywhere a small piece of paper could have torn and got stuck.

If you're absolutely sure that there is nothing stuck, I'd try to do a hard-reset: Turn off the machine, unplug the power cord and the cable that goes to your computer (if it's hooked up to one. And if it is hooked up to a computer, power down the computer as well.) Wait a minute or two, plug the computer back in, plug the power cord and cable from the printer back in, then turn on the printer and the computer and let them both go through their various start-ups.

If none of that works, let us know.. but from what I know and the docs I have access to, it should work... (fingers crossed!)

Good Luck!

LE error


In case you are sure that the washer is not full of suds or overloaded a breakdown in the signal between the microprocessor and the motor may cause the error code. This can occur if there is a loose wire, dislodged ball sensor. Try first to reset the control unit by unplugging washer power cable for few minutes. Good Luck !
