The washer is stopping midway through the load and an error codeLE what seems to be the problem


This is usually a communication error, unplug the machine for 20 minutes and then see if it returns when power is restored.
but if this does not helps then the actual reason of LE error code is as follows:--

LE LOCKED MOTOR ERROR

• The connector (3-pin, male, white) in the MOTOR HARNESS is not connected to the connector (3-pin, female, white) of STATOR ASSEMBLY.

• The electric 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.

• The MOTOR HARNESS between the STATOR ASSEMBLY and MAIN PWB ASSEMBLY is cut (open circuited).

• The hall sensor is out of order/defective.

The hall sensor seems to be part of the motor.
The 'LE' error message indicates the control board has detected that the motor is either not turning, or has locked up for some reason. Monitoring the motor is the job of the hall effect sensor board which constantly determines the direction and speed of the motor and feeds that information back to the control board. If there is a problem between what the motor should be doing and what the hall effect sensor says the motor is doing, the 'LE' will be displayed and the cycle will be stopped.

Motor lock can be caused by several things from a loose connector, to a bad motor, or even the hall effect sensor failing or dislodging from it's mount. Any one or more of these components could have caused this error.

What does an ''LE'' code mean on a LG Model WM2075CW


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Make sure the error is not IE, which means water has not reached to the pre-set level within 4 min. since ERROR inlet valve operated or water has not reached to the normal level within 25 min.

The 'LE' error message indicates the control board has detected that the motor is either not turning, or has locked up for some reason. Monitoring the motor is the job of the Hall Effect sensor board which constantly determines the direction and speed of the motor and feeds that information back to the control board. If there is a problem between what the motor should be doing and what the hall effect sensor says the motor is doing, the 'LE' will be displayed and the cycle will be stopped.

Motor lock can be caused by several things from a loose connector, to a bad motor, or even the hall effect sensor failing or dislodging from it's mount. Any one or more of these components could have caused this error, but it is possible to separate the working from the non-working, just by following a process.

To make sure its not a locked motor, try turning the drum with your hand. And, if you feel some resistance while turning the drum or the drum doesn’t move freely then the motor is locked and you’ll need to get it replaced.

The hall sensor is rather easy to replace, and is covered by a seven year part warranty (in US). Take the back cover off. Take the big nut off and remove the motor rotor. Remove the bolts holding the motor windings. Remove the electric plug on the sensor and unclip it from the motor winding. Snap new sensor on and reassemble. Usually takes under a half hour.

Also check for ---



  • Check for the Connector (3 pin, male, white) in the Wire Harness, check if it is connected to the Connector (3 pin, female, white) of MOTOR. Reconnect or repair the connector.
  • The electric contact between the connectors¡a3 pin, male, white in the Wire Harness and 6 pin, female, white in the PWB ASSY(Main) is bad or unstable.Reconnect or repair the contact in the connector.
  • The Wire Harness between the MOTOR and PWB ASSY(Main) is cut(open circuited).Repair the damaged (open-circuited) WIRE HARNESS
  • The hall sensor is out of order/defective.Replace the PWB ASSY(Main).

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

LE light came on and washer stopped. Tried another load, washer filled but does not run


The LE code means a motor error. Lock error, you may have to try replacing the Hall Sensor and if this doesn't fix the problem then you need to replace the Stator as there may be aproblem between the Stator Assembly and the main PWB Assembly.

My LG washing machine will not run through washing cycle


Locked motor error (LE)

* The connector (3-pin, male, white) in the motor harness is not connected to the connector (3-pin, female, white) of stator assembly
* The electrical contact between the connectores, (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 sator assembly and main PWB assembly is cut (open circuit).
* The hall sensor is out of order/defective.

***. If the hall sensor is defective, replace the entire motor.

LE error code on LG washing machine Model WT-R801, goes through all cycles, then when supposed to spin it comes up with this error, even on a small load.


Looking at several LG Washer service manuals, the error code LE ( Lock Error) could be any one of several things: a 3 pin connector in the wire harness going to the motor, It could also be the harness itself between the Motor and Circuit Board Controller ( PWB) assembly has been damaged or cut..or the hall sensor used to detect drum speed while it rotates may be defective or the main control board ( PWB) "printed wire board " is defective. Lots to pick from but these are the likely candidates... hope this helps
