Question about LG WM1814CW Front Load Washer
I have a LE 1814CW that is 2.5 years old that has never had a problem before today. I was running my 2nd load of the day when it stopped mid cycle with the LE error. I have tried unplugging and then trying a rinse and spin.
It will turn counter clockwise, but when it tries to turn clockwise it makes a whirring noise and then goes back to counter clockwise. It does this for a few minutes and then goes back to the LE error. It isn't a problem with too many suds, because I use very little HE detergent.
Any ideas on what to replace to get this fixed?
Had same problem last yr. about 2 yrs. old. Just happened again today. When i called LG last yr. they said unplug unit for 1/2 hr plug back in. I did this and has run fine until today I'm trying this process again and it worked.

Here is some more info for anybody that needs it.
I ran into the same LE error on our LG washer. Tried replacing the Hall Sensor which did not fix the problem (Intermittent LE error).
Here is what I found: I had a cracked solder joint on pin W of my motor harness connector (RD1) on the main circuit board. This caused a intermittent "Open" circuit indication to the computer which causes it to stop spinning and indicate "LE" on the display.
I had to remove the pink connector from my circuit board and dig out the humiseal around the other side of pink connector to gain access to the soldered in pins. Pin "W" just pulled right out when I removed the pink connector on the circuit board. I soldered the male pins back in place and also soldered the female motor wire pins right to the male pins coming from the circuit board. Wrapped electrical tape around them and I'm now operating with no "LE" error for now. I suspect that this is a VERY SIMILAR cause to alot of the "LE" error trouble people are getting. Here is a link to my website with pictures of what I did.

Okay, so I unplugged for 30 minutes, unloaded, drained, and even cleaned the sludge out from underneath the detergent holder... Plugged it back in, and works great.
