Lg wd-3274rhd washer/dryer

LE error message. Drum is free and rotates easily by hand. Machine produces two distinct sounds - hissing "sssss" (the drum does nothing) and a muted "angry bear" sound, about 20Hz "ghrrrrrrr" (the drum revolves).... then an error message appears.
The sears on-line does not provide ANY sensor for this machine.
I am in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada

    The manual does not show how to open the beast and how to remove the stator, nor the position of the Hall probe. Canadian Sears calls the stator assembly a "motor assembly"- for all you to know - and can deliver it to Ottawa, Ontario, the capital of the country in ... just three weeks. Does anybody know where the detailed pictures are available?

Thanks for this post. My WD3274RHD suddenly developed the exact same problem with the same symptoms as mentioned! Replacing the hall sensor solved it. The part is also available at SearsPartsDirect.com, search for part number as 6501KW2001A.

Ntms reports: already fixed. Hall sensor identical with:

was purchased and replaced. Please note: removing the rotor from the shaft requires some prying. It is a safe procedure.

HI.
LG is a funny machine sometimes. Sometimes even their service manual does not show the parts you need.
In your case you have a motor (stator) problem.
! disconnect from power for 30 min and try again. Sometimes this resets the hall sensor.
According to service manual ( chapter 7)
• The connector in the LEAD WIRE ASSEMBLY is not connected to
the connnector of STATOR ASSEMBLY
Reconnect or repair the connector
• The hall sensor is out of order/defective.
Replace the STATOR ASSEMBLY

If this does not help take of your statot and see if the hall sensor can be clicked off. On the hall sensor is always noted the pat number. This you can try with sears. HERE is your service manual

Error code LE what does it mean


The LE error indicates that the Controller is having trouble communicating with the motor.

The most common cause for this is if something gets wedged in and the drum can't turn freely. Try turning it by hand to make sure it is free. The next most common cause is if someone spins the drum moderately fast with the washer turned off. I.e. if you give it a spin to make sure their isn't a sock stuck to the drum.. To fix this, unplug the machine and turn the drum counterclockwise 4 full rotations followed by 4 rotations clockwise at low speed. Plug it back in and see if that fixes it.

If that's not it, then there is a sensor called the Hall Sensor that could be the problem. I've never had to replace one of these and can't comment further.

Drum starts to move then stops then Le appears and a slight hissing noise from direct drive motor. Looks like intemittant fault


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.

Spinning Motor is overloading


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. LE error is a communication error between the control board and the motor. In you LG washer the Hall Effect sensor board monitors the direction and speed of the motor and sends this information to the control board. Usually the issue is with this Hall Effect sensor going bad and should be replaced. However, to make sure it’s not a locked motor, try turning the drum with your hand. And, if you feel some resistance while turning the drum or the drum doesn’t move freely then the motor is locked and you’ll need to get it replaced. If it is fine then it is the Sensor. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

LE error code on LG WM0642 FL washer


LE is a locked motor error code.
It is usually associated with a loose motor connector wire or a defective Hall Sensor.

Fe MEANING


It typically means that one of the water valves (that opens and closes to let the appropriate amount of water into the machine) is not functioning properly. It is frequently accompanied by a continuous flow of water into the machine (although with the drain pump also running you won't necessarily see any water building up inside the drum.) I believe the letters actually stand for "Fill Error."

LE Error??


your handbook should say what "fe" (a fault code) is. it may be not draining. have you checked the filter? on many machines the door can not be opened if water is still inside. try putting the drain hose at floor level into a bucket. otherwise undo the filter and let the water out that way - you may have water everywhere!!
