Question about LG TROMM WM2688H 4.0 cu.ft. Front Loading SteamWasher

1 Answer

LG front washer keeps getting "LE" error. I cleaned out the filter on bottom front left side, but the machine still doesn't spin when it's on. It hand spins when I have the door open, otherwise that's it. Please help, I need my washing machine to work.

Regarding the LE EEROR CODE.... This code is also caused by having a residue on the sensors in your unit. You have to use a HE liqud detergent.If you use fabric softner use half of the recommended amount and dilute if it is concentrated. Once a month (for a family of four) put 3 cups of white distilled vineager directly into the drum and select sanitary cycle or the hottest cycle you can. This prevents residue from forming in your unit and causing the LE ERROR CODE.

The spinning may be a burnt out motor, you may have to get a repairman on that, I can't be sure on that but I hope this helps solve your problem

I have an lg tromm front load washer. I am getting the IE fault. I have cleaned the inlet screens and drain filter. It gets stuck at the 13 min mark, seems like it just won't go to spin cycle.


LE code mean suds have built up. Using non he (High Efficiency) detergent or too much detergent will cause this error most front loaders use he detergent only there is a he swirl on the container
Let your washer sit idle or 45 minutes.Unplg washer as well
Plug in and turn on as left spin speed select no spin press Start/pause to start a drain only cycle. When cycle is complete remove load. Start a rinse•spin cycle to clean out residue.
If the sud were too much you may have to repeat

My washer is not working it begins to spin stops and has the letters LE appearing.


Hi,

This a common problem for all front loaders. Your washer will not drain or work 'cause your outlet filter is clogged or an unusually heavy load. The small door is on the left side front bottom of your washer. Remove the door with a putty knife or thin butter knife inserted in the middle top of the access panel door. Drain the water from the filter housing by pulling the tube out of the clip and unplugging, allow it to run into a bucket while the machine is in spin only mode. This mode is acheived when the washer is first powered on press the spin button until no spin is reached then run. Run in this mode until no water is draining from the tube in the bucket. Keep the tube as low as possible. When water has stopped coming out of the tube turn off the washer and unplug from the wall. This step is important because this resets the fault. Expect some water to come out when you open the filter housing by turning counterclockwise until you can pull the filter from its housing. Clean out your filter, return to housing turning clockwise until seated and recap the tube and place in the holder, refit the cover and plug back into the wall. Fixed. You may also need to lighten the load a bit but I always try full on load anyways. If it fails again just lighten, unplug wait >1 minute then replug and run.

Goodluck..

Le Error on front load machine


Hello,This a common problem for all front loaders. Your washer will not drain or work 'cause your outlet filter is clogged. Usually this small door is on the left side front below of your washer. Expect some water to come out when you open the door, etc. Clean out your filter and refit.....things should be fine.

Thanks

On my frontload LG tromm I have the error code EO it will


There is a filter on the bottom left of the machine. If you pop the door off you can drain it with the hose, then spin the black filter out of the housing. This may help. Keep a wet/dry vac handy.

Unplug your machine for a few minutes or more and plug it back in. This will fix the LE error most of the time.
