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
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
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 ---
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.
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.
Wire Harness between the MOTOR and PWB ASSY(Main)
is cut(open circuited).Repair the damaged (open-circuited) WIRE HARNESS
hall sensor is out of order/defective.Replace the PWB ASSY(Main).
