My lg wm0742hga front load washer machine over fill of water.


Hello Felipe;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

The LE error code stands for "Locked Motor Error." This is one of the more common error codes on LG washing machines. Ii is a fault condition. Read your manual where it explicitly tells you to use only High Efficiency (HE) detergent. Although, regular detergent is less expensive, using other than HE, you are going to continue to have problems. Such as premature drum bearing failure.This is an expensive repair.
In the LG washer, the LE error code is usually caused by the burned out hall effect sensor, Part Number: 6501KW2002A.

1.) Unplug your unit and remove the back cover.

Be absolutely certain that the HALL EFFECT SENSOR is installed correctly. Three white plastic tabs on the STATOR (motor) securely hold the sensor in the correct position. If any of the *three plastic tabs* were damaged during an attempt to remove the old sensor-this will require replacing the STATOR ASSY
Also, Check for any black marks on the wires or burns or broken wires.

Model LG EM1832cw stopped spinning, a code LE displayed, any suggestions


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

LE error in your LG front load washer is displayed when either the motor is not working or the control board thinks that the motor is locked up. A Hall Effect sensor is used in these washers which monitors the speed and direction of the motor and then forwards this information to the control board. Hope you understand by now that this LE error is displayed when there is an issue with the motor or when the Hall Effect sensor sends wrong signal to the control. Conclusion is you'll have to check both motor and hall sensor and replace the part# that is bad, usually I have seen the sensor going bad. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.
