LE means motor overload. If it was a very large load, try pulling some out and re-running. Is the tub spinning? If it is not spinning, lurching, or only spinning one way, replace your hall sensor - see here:

The part is cheap and it takes around 1/2 hour to do. You will need someone to help hold the tub while you take out the main bolt in the motor.

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

Tip

LG Washing Machine LE Error Code or Fault Code


If you are getting a LE error code from your LG Washing machine, there are a couple of reasons why the error code would be displayed.

The main cause for this error code is because you used too much or the wrong kind of detergent in your washer. This code is set off by too much suds in the washer. Not only will this set off the alarm code, but it may also cause your washer to leak and even start to have a bad smell from the dampness getting where it should not be.

To remedy your problem if you do get this code you must first just let your washer sit for a half hour or so to let the suds disperse. Unplug the washer to erase the code and also to make sure it does not run. Then plug the washer back in and press the power button. Then press the spin button until the no spin/drain only cycle is selected. When all of the water is drained from the washing machine, remove all of the clothing and run a rinse and spin cycle to remove the excess soap from the washer. Then you can finish washing the clothing, but do not add any more soap.

Always make sure that you use the proper amount of detergent and use detergents that are low sudsing.

Other causes for this code can be a large load on a gentile wash cycle. This will cause a miscommunication to the motor. If this happens, lighten the load, reset, and restart the washing machine.

Just plain overloading the washing machine can also cause this error code. The motor will get too hot trying to handle the large load and cause the fault code. If this happens, unplug the washing machine and wait thirty minutes before attempting to wash again.

If you get this code immediately on the start up of a new washing machine, it is best to try to just reset the machine. Unplug the machine and hold the start/pause button in for five seconds. Then plug the machine back in and restart the washing machine.

You could be having a problem with your hall sensor. I would recommend you call Samsung for a warranty service call. The machine should have a 1 year parts and labor warranty so let them fix it for free.

Drum will not spin


did he run the diagnostics per the tech sheet within the machine?if it will do everything else but spin out,then the drain pump is plugged,as a plugged drain pump will shut down these front load units,you will need to remove hoses off pump and clean out pump and all hoses from tub to drain stand pipe,by running the diagnostics you can run each washer cycle and see what cycle isnt performing in a matter of 5 minutes versus 1 hour real wash time on some cycles

LE CODE WHAT MEANS. DAEWOO WASHING MACHINES MODEL: DWF-772W


LE error code refers to the door mechanism. Usually there is a locking switch that senses when the door is closed, allowing the wash cycle to start. If your door is closed and you are still getting the LE error, it is probably this switch that is faulty.

What does the LE code mean on the LG front loading


The main cause for this error code is because you used too much or the wrong kind of detergent in your washer. This code is set off by too much suds in the washer. Not only will this set off the alarm code, but it may also cause your washer to leak and even start to have a bad smell from the dampness getting where it should not be.

OR

LE is a locked motor error. Not to worry as 95% of the time it is just a bad hall sensor (the motor position sensor). For your model the part number is 6501KW2002A.

Please check the below link for an detailed article about LE error code
