I assume that you are referring to the main board. Simply unplug the machine for your safety then remove the screws attaching the top panel to the rear of the machine then lift the panel off the cabinet. Once the top panel is off, you will see the main board mounted to the rear left side of the machine. Release the tabs securing the main board protective cover starting from the tab on the right side then work on the 3 tabs on the top and 2 tabs at the bottom. Remove the cover then the screw at the rear of the cabinet attaching the main board to the cabinet then slide the board assembly to the right and pull it up to remove. Reinstall the new one in reverse of the disassembly steps.

Just in case you are referring to the control panel board, remove the top panel as indicated previously then pull the dispenser drawer out until it stop and then press the locking tab and pull the drawer out completely. Take out the two screws in the recess where the dispenser drawer sits and then the two screws, one on each side, on the rear of the control panel securing it to the cabinet. Remove the control panel and install the new one in reverse of the disassembly steps.

Please indicate the exact model number of the washer if the outlined procedure is not applicable or if you need further assistance.

Error code LE on front load LG washer

This is a motor fault code. Sometimes it can be just a communication error, in which case you can try unplugging the machine for 20 minutes and see if it clears the problem up. More likely it is a fault in the motor itself. The most likely culprit would be a defective hall sensor. I will attach a photo of the sensor for you to see what it looks like. To access and replace the hall sensor, you have to remove the rotor and stator at the motor. Before going to this trouble, try the unplugging thing first and also check the connector on the main control board. It is the red connector next to the heat sink2.gif. Using a multimeter, check that the board is receiving a signal from the sensor. Hope this helps and best wishes.

LG Washer wont start, no power

Make sure there's power getting to the washer. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power. Sometimes the power cord disconnects at the washer, if this is the case, the wiring must be repaired or replaced.

Washer is showing "TE" error even after replacing the thermistor

Try pressing spin speed and soild level at the same time. Is the temperature about 10 degrees C over the the selected temperature? If no, then try replacing the main board.

Also make sure the thermister isn't loose. That could cause your problem.

If the main board doesn't fix it, then you have to replace the heater assembly.

Im actually looking the the service manual your unit as we speak.

LG Washer won't start

If you have eliminated the possibility of a faulty AC power cord or faulty AC outlet, then it sounds like your unit will need the main control board replaced. Probably a bad relay on the main control board.

F01 and add a garment light on

Check the pump first but you most in likley have a bad circut board. On the front of the washer their is a kick panel. Remove the 3 screws on the bottom and remove it. Taped on the inside is a book of codes and some self diagnostics you can run. This is all your repairman will do and he will order the circut board and charge you more than the washer is worth.
