This means locked motor error and its caused by the "stator" hall effect sensor on the motor that keeps track of the motor speed on the unit during operation,it plugs into the mainboards circuitry and if this sensor quits,it tells the motor that the motors locked up and bad,replace this unit at $35.00 and youll be back in business

dSorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.Is this a new installation?

In new installations, this error can sometimes present because of a miscommunication between the control panel and the wash motor. In this instance, the washer simply needs to be reset.

Step 1: Unplug the washing machine.

Step 2: While the washer remains unplugged, press and hold the [Start/Pause] button on the front panel for 5 seconds.

Step 3: Plug the unit back in, and run a rinse and spin cycle to test if the LE code is cleared.

Has a large load size been used with a gentle wash setting?

Gentle wash cycles such as Perm Press, Delicates, Hand Wash, and Wool/Silk should only be used for smaller loads. Because the cycles are more gentle while tumbling and spinning, too many items in the drum can register as an issue with the motor. In this instance reset the unit and run a test rinse and spin cycle.

Has the washer been overloaded?

Single bulky items or large loads can add extra weight to the drum and place stress on the motor. Remove some of the clothing and restart. If the issue is still present after a few items have been removed, unplug the washer for 30 minutes to allow the motor to cool and then restart the cycle.

NOTE: Make sure the drum is not overloaded

Are there soap suds visible in the drum?

Over-sudsing is the main cause of LE error codes. Using non-HE (high efficiency) detergents or too much detergent will cause stress on the motor. In addition, detergent residue can also cause leaking and odor. Follow these steps to resolved an LE error code caused by over-sudsing.

Step 1: Unplug the washer and allow the unit to sit for 30 minutes to give the suds time to dissolve.

Step 2: Plug the washer back in and press [Power] to turn on the washer.

Step 3: Do not choose a washing cycle. Press the [Spin Speed] key until "No Spin" is selected.

Step 4: Press [Start/Pause] to begin a drain only cycle.

Step 5: After the drain only cycle has completed, remove the clothing items from the machine. Turn the power back on and select [Rinse and Spin] and then press [Start/Pause]. This will remove excess soap suds and light residue from the drum. Repeat this step until no visible suds are in the drum of the washer.

Hi, My machine is not spinning and I keep getting an LE error. It makes a weird noise. What can I do to fix problem?


The LE error message means "locked motor error" which means the control is not seeing the motor running.

The problem can be caused by a broken wire or loose connection but the most likely cause of the problem is a bad hall sensor.

The sensor can be accessed by removing the rear panel and the rotor assembly. See the image below for help with this. Remember to unplug the washer first.

Make sure the rotor and drum rotate. Anything blocking the tub rotation might trigger an LE code.

I had the same problem, When calling a repair shop I told the mechanic it was coming up LE on the display. He told me it was a lid error. Which made perfectly clear sence. I checked the lip of the lid and there it was, a piece broken off where it hits the saftey switch. (my switch was on the left). So check the strike plate on your lid. You may have to screw a piece of alaminium angle to replace it. Or replace the lid.

You could simply have a blocked drain pump. Is there water still in the unit when the code LE comes on, if so simply remove obstruction (outlet filter) and try spinning unit. Click above on troubleshooting, and look for drain, filter, etc. You're bound to find something useful. And rate pl.
