An LE error is a locked rotor. The hall sensor on the stator part of the motor is not sensing the rotor part of the motor is turning. So the short version is you need a new stator(which has the sensor on it or just the sensor) replaced which should have a 5 year warranty on it so call LG for your nearest authorized service center

I had the same problem. I thought it was the motor it turned out I had a nickle wedged in the filter (bottom left behind panel) the nickle blocked the water pump makeing the pump overload.

Hey mark1963, You nailed it right on the head. I have the LG WM2277Hb. Just recently gave me the LE code. In my case the washer drum would just make a hum sound and looked as if it was trying to spin but wouldn't. I found your solution on fixya.com and decided to order the part and fix it myself. 6501KW2002A SENSOR ASSEMBLYSENSOR Very easy job to do. Took all of 20 mins to repair. Just wanted to say thanks. LG service is a joke. You saved me time and money.

Hello Claudecyr,
Welcome,

You said, your lg washing machine shows LE alarm code

Try this!
Unplug your washer for 10 minutes. If you can't reach the plug, turn the breaker off.
then when you turn it on the system should have reset!
And you will more than likely be fine!
Please let me know!
Huuum.
I think you will be solved.
Please remember to leave a rating! A solved I hope!

SOURCE: LG Tromm washer WM2077CW reading code LE

LE means "Overload in Motor" Unplug the washer, remove clothes, wait 15 minutes for motor to cool down. try again. If problem persists you'll need a certified technician.

How do I fix my washing machine


If your washer was working previously please read below.
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.

Lg wm2101hw code le


Press "end of cycle" for 3 seconds or till the flashing goes off . Plug off the wall. Code can be an indication of several issues. The most common cause is over sudsing in the machine. Overloading the wash with too much laundry may also cause the LE error code. Lastly, a breakdown in the signal between the microprocessor and the motor may cause that error code. This can occur if there is a loose wire, see that all wires are tightened..........

Lg wd-3245rhd LE error message


This seems to be a fault in the motor wiring harness, check all the connectors to and from the motor, check the male and female connectors. Also check the sensors to the motor which can cause this motor to show up as overload.

Lg washing machine WT - R852... LE error..bad burning smell


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

For LG washers 'LE' stands for Lock Error. There is likely to be a problem with either the door solenoid/lock or the 'door closed' sensor. Both require a service engineer's attention I suggest, sorry ;-0(

If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Le error code on my LG washer.


On LG Washers the code LE is for motor overload protection.
Ensure that you are not overloading washer, make sure to clean pump by draining at little door at lower left corner(check manual for instructions), unplug for 30 minutes to reset, now try running cycle again. if it fails again something else is causing the motor to work to hard and will require a professional.

LG Washing machine - WM14225FD. Error LE showing


I'm sorry I only have service info on US market models, but this info might help.

LE codes are extensively covered in past Fix-Ya solutions, but are generally caused by only a handful of things. 1. the " Load Error " can be a very off balanced load. 2. excessive use of soap leads to too much suds, and thus drag on the inner tub. (use 1 tablespoon of HE soap max. per load) or 3. the Hall sensor (part number 6501KW2001A) has failed. The hall sensor is rather easy to replace, and is covered by a seven year part warranty. Take the back cover off. Take the big nut off and remove the motor rotor. Remove the bolts holding the motor windings. Remove the electric plug on the sensor and unclip it from the motor winding. Snap new sensor on and reassemble. Usually takes under a half hour. On a difficulty scale of 1 - 10, it might rate a 4. This should be a Fix-Ya for your machine, and at basically no cost!
In the US, find a service provider using your zip code at http://us.lgservice.com/index_b2c.jsp or call LG at 800-243-0000

Le code appears during normal cycle


LG recommends unplugging the washer for 15 - 20
minutes to reset the microprocessor.

The most common cause for the LE error code is over-sudsing in the machine from using regular detergent instead of a high efficiency detergent. The HE detergents are designed for lower suds levels and enhanced cleaning performance in front-loading washers.

Overloading the wash with too much laundry may also cause the LE error code. LG recommends loading the washer until the clothes in the drum are no more than three-fourths of the way up the window of the door. This will allow them sufficient room for tumbling.

Error code LE


Suggestion: Your wash could be overloaded; put in clothes within machine's capacity. What is written in your manual's max clothes capacity. If your heater is on; switch off machine and wall plug. Reset the machine with the heater on minimum & resume your normal cycle.
