Washer not getting water

Our washer had an LE error message originally we unplugged it and waited 30 minutes and this went away. now when we turn on the machine it says select cycle we press start, but no water is coming into the machine and the drum does not spin. we contacted lg direct but since the machine is not under warrenty anymore they are not interested in helping. we also live in the bahamas and there are no lg dealers here.
any suggestions or advise would be appreciated.

Hi your problem could be one of a couple of things the first being the element that heats the water up this could be covered in limescale causing it to fail due to overheating the other could be that their is a problem on the circuit board on the main board where the timer is both of these can be repaired relitively easy.

Its best left to a pro unless you have done these sort of repairs before these parts will need testing to eliminate the cause of your problem the chances are its just the heating element do you know if you machine has a hot and cold feed or is it just cold feed?

    could be problem with the programme board as its is not going through the normal prcess can you hear it clicking or ticking noise or does the machine act like its doing nothing at all

  • paul proctor Apr 22, 2008

    does it hiss as soon as you switch on at mains or does it only happen when you go to start cycle

It sounds more like a solenoid problem or a defective valve.
Check the info from this site to have an idea where to check.

    Here is more info about the same "LE" error.

  • Jaime Hernandez Apr 22, 2008

    You might have defective HAL sensor on the motor that is causing the appliance not to function.

    here's no water at all

    If there's no water at all, make these checks:



    • Is there water getting to the machine?



    • Is the water-volume selector switch set properly and are the control panel buttons pressed in all the way?



    • If you have a Maytag® washer, is the fuse (if there is one) in the control panel at the lid-switch bracket blown?



    • Is
      there a faint buzzing or humming noise coming from the water-inlet
      valve? (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that
      the fill hoses are attached to.) If you can't hear anything, the
      water-inlet valve may not be getting any power. If you can hear some
      noise and there's water present, you may need to completely replace the
      water-inlet valve.

Whirlpool washer # WFW72HE will not work at all after trying to wash a load of clothes AND I FORGOT TO TURN ON THE WATER how do I fix the problem


I would unplug it from the wall and wait about 15 minutes and then plug it back into the wall. It should reset itself.

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..

What does LE mean on display panel of my Samsung vrt front load washer?


Le means there's a problem with filling. Check to be sure inlet hoses aren't kinked, and no blockage at the inlet, as well as water turned on.

LE error on LG 2277HW


Over-sudsing is the main cause of LE error codes. Using non-HE (high efficiency) detergents or too much detergent will cause stress on the motor. In addition, detergent residue can also cause leaking and odor. Follow these steps to resolved an LE error code caused by over-sudsing.

Step 1: Unplug the washer and allow the unit to sit for 30 minutes to give the suds time to dissolve.

Step 2: Plug the washer back in and press [Power] to turn on the washer.

Step 3: Do not choose a washing cycle. Press the [Spin Speed] key until "No Spin" is selected.

Step 4: Press [Start/Pause] to begin a drain only cycle.

Step 5: After the drain only cycle has completed, remove the clothing items from the machine. Turn the power back on and select [Rinse and Spin] and then press [Start/Pause]. This will remove excess soap suds and light residue from the drum. Repeat this step until no visible suds are in the drum of the washer.


Has a large load size been used with a gentle wash setting?
Gentle wash cycles such as Perm Press, Delicates, Hand Wash, and Wool/Silk should only be used for smaller loads. Because the cycles are more gentle while tumbling and spinning, too many items in the drum can register as an issue with the motor. In this instance reset the unit and run a test rinse and spin cycle.


Has the washer been overloaded?
Single bulky items or large loads can add extra weight to the drum and place stress on the motor. Remove some of the clothing and restart. If the issue is still present after a few items have been removed, unplug the washer for 30 minutes to allow the motor to cool and then restart the cycle.

I'm getting the error message LE which says motor overload. I've read some comments on line that people have drained the water unplugged the machine for a couple of hours and the error message went away...


Hello,

LE code stands for locked motor error. When this error code appears in your front load washer it indicates a fault in the motor unit.

1 . Check the connections to the Coil/Stator at the rear of the unit possibly it should be something like a broken wire.

2 . Coil/Stator Assembly will be defective preventing the drive to operate.You should go for a replacement of that assembly.

Thanks

LG Tromm washer is not working with getting LE message.


LE code means locked motor error. you need to check the Hall Sensor. unplug the power, remove the rear washer panel, locate the Hall sensor connector on the stator behind the rotor. you can test it with an OHM meter for failure. it may just be an unstable connection.
