Question about Washing Machines
The 'LE' error message indicates the control board
has detected that the motor is either not turning, or has locked up for
some reason. Monitoring the motor is the job of the hall effect sensor
board which constantly determines the direction and speed of the motor
and feeds that information back to the control board. If there is a
problem between what the motor should be doing and what the hall effect
sensor says the motor is doing, the 'LE' will be displayed and the cycle
will be stopped.
Motor lock can be caused by several things from a loose connector, to a bad motor, or even the hall effect sensor failing or dislodging from it's mount. Any one or more of these components could have caused this error, but it is possible to separate the working from the non-working, just by following a process.
