Question about LG WM-2277HW Front Load Washer

My LG Tromm had the LE code appear. I flipped the breaker and let it rest for 30mins. When I flipped the breaker back on I had no power at all. Went through this process several times and still nothing. Please help.

LE indicates a fault with the motor on the appliance.



LG suggest you switch off, wait for a minute, unplug the appliance.

Wait 15 minutes then plug it back in again.

Try the machine again.



If it's still faulty, you can try changing the Hall Sensor in the motor, this can sometimes cure the problem.



Unplug the machine and remove the rear cover. There are 4 Philips head screws. Take them out and remove the rear cover.

You should now see the rear of the motor, which is mounted to the back of the drum.

In the middle is a large bolt which holds the stator cover.

You'll need a 17mm socket and a ratchet to remove this bolt.

Remove the stator cover and place aside.



Toward the bottom-left, you will see a couple of wire bunches held to the motor by three screws. One holds a metal bracket, one actually holds a ground wire, and the last is through a plastic bracket toward the bottom. Remove these three screws and don't lose them.

Through the motor there are 6 bolts holding it onto the back of the drum assembly.

You'll need a 10mm socket and ratchet to remove them.

You will now have the motor off the back of the drum.

Disconnect the two wire harnesses from the motor.



Looking at the surface of this motor that was facing the DRUM (not the outside), you'll see two small pieces clipped onto it, toward the bottom.

The sensor you are looking to replace is the one that looks like a kitchen magnet.

It is attached by small clips. You'll see how it goes on. It's easy to remove.

Go to google and search for part number 6501KW2002A.

This will bring up an LG sensor assembly.

Double check with the supplier that this is the sensor for your appliance.

When you receive the sensor, simply reverse steps 1 through 5.

Once re assembled, try the machine again.



If still the same after this you'll need to replace the motor and/or control board.

I just had the problem happen to us. I looked on their site. I saw one place that said unplug the washer then push in the start/pause button & hold it in for 5 seconds. Then plug it back in and try to run another.

I have an LG Tromm washer. I start it up it start


Hi,


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.


Thank you !!

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.

LE Tromm Washing Machine


i think you mean LG Tromm washing machine ... and the error code is LE ... thats a common failure with this machine .. often its cause by a defective " Hall effect sensor" this is used to detect the position of the wash basket ... if you are handy with tools then you can change it yourself at low cost ... but it does require removing a big bolt, the spin basket and several small bolts ... not difficult for a mechanic but probably more than aunt martha would want to tackle .. the URL listed below will give you good information on how to do that job ..
