Hi,

To start with, this is a common problem on these washers. There could be many reasons for the same. Disconnect the power supply for few minutes, say 15 minutes and then turn on the machine. If the same error display is there, it could be a bad news.

Check and make sure that the lid switch is fine.Behind the lid left hand side facing from the front of the machine is a small cover, a spring connected to the lid will rust out over time, so you need to check those. LE display indicates that there's a problem with the motor circuit. Testing the motor circuit components is best done by a profession service person, using the correct test procedures. This display (LE) indicates that the problem could be the control board, the motor itself, or both.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Washing machine not spinning, stops & the letters LE flash, washing machine is a NEC NW-892 Millenium


It sounds like your lid switch is not working correctly, look to see if there is supposed to be a finger that protrudes from the bottom of the lid and enters a hole in the top of the washer, this is a safety switch to ensure the lid is closed, it is possible the actuator finger is broken or missing, If this is the case, I have heard of people manually actuating the switch to finish the load, I am not suggesting that because there is a safety issue, but it has been done. Your washer might not have an exposed actuator,it could be hidden under the washer top, but the LE error code indicates the lid is open.

I am Looking for the meaning to eror code LE on my washing machine it is an nec model No NW 452


According to what's written in the manual...

'LE' will light up if the machine is unbalanced or the lid is open. This can be corrected by following operation: WATER SUPPLYfi RINSEfi DRAIN. However if the unbalanced condition is unchanged despite repeating the above operation, the lamp 'UE' will light up, and the buzzer will sound to indicate a problem.

FTW445ges2 Washer won't drain, buzzes during drain cycle


Hi...

You need to check this parts.
Inspect the drain hose for kinks
Test the timer control
Test the lid switch(some models)
Inspect the water pump
Inspect the driver belt(belt drive only)
Inspect the motor coupler

It spins, but doesn't pump If your washer spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged. In many washers, a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump--or even into the pump itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out.

To remove the sock from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then, using needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the clothing through the port.

Sometimes you can't remove the stuck clothing from below. Then you have to remove the agitator, top of the outer drum shield, and inner clothes tub. This isn't easy to do--and you may need special tools--so you might be happier getting a qualified appliance repair technician to do the job.

If the drain line isn't plugged, the problem may be with your pump. Even if the pump appears to be turning, the internal impeller may be broken. If so, you need to replace the pump.

It doesn't spin or pump If your washer doesn't spin or pump water out but the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley. If so, you need to replace the pump. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it.

It pumps, but the water returns If the water that pumps out of the machine goes back into the machine after the spin cycle, your washer may be siphoning the water from a laundry tub that has a slow drain, back into the washer. The usual remedy for this is to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is something stuck in the drain?) Also, check for these problems:

  • If the drain hose reaches more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut off the excess.


  • If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly.
Hope it will help you.
