My front loader washing machine suddenly stop working at there is an LE sign


LG, the electronics and appliances conglomerate, manufactures a variety of high-efficiency washing machines. Whether you have a front- or top-loading model, your LG washer is equipped with an error-monitoring system. When the LE code appears in your display, it indicates a problem with the motor. The problem can be related to several different issues. In order to clear the error, determine which issue is at hand.
New Installation The LE error code may appear in an LG washer's display if installation issues exist. It indicates a miscommunication between the wash motor and the control panel. In most cases, you can simply reset the washer to solve the problem. Unplug your washer before pressing and holding the Start/Pause button for approximately five seconds. Plug it back in and set the washer to a rinse-spin cycle to see if the code has cleared. If the code reappears in the display, contact LG at the phone number in your owner's manual for assistance.
Thermal Overload Protection Your washer may display the LE code if the thermal overload protection circuit in the motor has been tripped. The feature is designed to prevent the motor from overheating and causing permanent damage to the washer. To clear the error code, the motor must cool down. Allow the washer to sit for approximately half an hour before restarting the cycle. If the code reappears, the motor may have an issue that requires a service call. Unplug your washer and contact LG.
Excessive Suds If your washer detects excessive soap suds in the drum, the LE error code can appear. Typically, excessive sudsing occurs when you use too much high-efficiency detergent or a detergent that's not specifically high-efficiency detergent. Always follow the guidelines in your owner's manual and on the detergent label to determine what type of detergent, and how much, to use. To get rid of soap suds in the drum and clear the code, unplug your washer and let it sit for a half hour so the suds can dissolve. Plug the washing machine back in and turn it on, hitting the Spin Speed button and selecting "No Spin." Press the Start/Pause button to turn on a drain only cycle. When the cycle is completed, remove the load from the tub. Start a rinse-spin cycle to clear away any residue. You may need to repeat the cycle to remove all of the suds.
Load Issues The LE error code can appear in an LG washer's display due to certain load conditions. If you are washing a large load, don't choose a gentle cycle like Delicates, Hand Wash, Perm Press or Wool/Silk. Reserve them for smaller loads. To reset the washer, unplug it and press the Start/Pause button for five seconds before plugging it back in. The LE code can indicate that the washer has been overloaded; large loads and bulky items can strain the motor. Remove a few items from the washer to reduce the load size and restart the cycle. If the code appears again, let the washer sit for a half-hour so the motor has time to cool down before you restart the cycle.

My washer will start get about 5min into cycle then quit and come back on at a later time. does anyone know what could be causing this . it is a roper


sounds like an overheating problem with the motor. Does the washer sit on carpeted floor or lenolium/hrd floor? The motors of today are thermally protected, so when they overheat they stop till they cool down enough to turn themselves back on. You should have at about one inch clearance under the washer so air can flow underneath to help keep motor cool. If the clearance is not the reason then I still think your motor is overheating. When it shuts off can you try another cycle to see if it's not in the timer? If you get no response then I would say for sure you have excessive heat of the motor.

Maytag Atlantis shut down during rinse cycle.


Contacted a local repair shop. They told me that if I got it spinning again, the motor was most likely ok. It is protected by a thermal switch that turns it off when it begins to overheat. The smell was to be expected as it was overheating; the difficutly restarting was because it hadn't cooled off enough yet. We have now used it a few times for small loads. Still getting a smell, but the wash cycle is completing ok.
