SOURCE: hall sensor

no you do not have to replace the motor when replacing the hall sensor. unless the motor is not reading on the hall sensor. most of the time it just the hall sensor that needs replacement

SOURCE: LG Tromm WM2277HW with LE error. Replaced the Hall

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.

SOURCE: LG LE error. WM2277HW Have replaced the Hall Sensor and ran

As long as that Tide HE is not 2x or 3x concentrated, that would be the maximum amount of detergent for a large, heavily soiled load. Lighter soiled and/or smaller loads should be about 1 tablespoon. If 2x concentrate soap, use only half that. The reason this could cause an LE error is that suds between the inner and outer drum will cause excessive drag on the inner tub, with the possible result of an LE error. I'd try to run a load on Sanitary, heavy soil level, with no clothes, and a washer cleaner such as Affresh, Washer Magic, Whirlaway hot tub cleaner, Smellywasher cleaner, or Tide washer cleaner to remove any possible build up of soap residue from the outer tub area.
Sometimes, cycle selection/ loading level/ load type can cause LE errors. Gentle wash cycles, such as Perm Press, Delicates, Hand Wash, and Wool/Silk should only be used for smaller loads. Because these cycles are more gentle in tumbling and spinning, putting too much in the drum can register an issue with the motor. Remove items, reset unit and test with a Rinse/Spin cycle.
Another possiblility would be a loose electrical connection dealing with the Hall sensor, at the sensor, the control board, or (much more unlikely) the wire connecting them.
On rare occasion, the main control board can be at fault, but generally, replacing the Hall sensor does take care of the problem. (over 90% of the time)

SOURCE: I need to replace my hall sensor - LG WM0264H

I fixed this myself. I found an on-line LG service manual and bought the hall sensor (about $30). It took all of a half an hour to repair this myself. I read that too much soap and fabric softener will make the circuits on the mother board heat up and short out the hall sensor (gunk and resistance on the wash drum). It is running like a top again. The local parts store said to periodically run bleach and water through the soap, and softener despenser to help keep it clean.

I have a LG Tromm with an LE error code. I just replaced the hall sensor


With a digital volt meter you need to measure the ohms value of the hall sensor. It has 4 wires. White red blue and gray. With the meter set at 20k ohms check hall sensor at the control panel. From white to blue you should read 9.5 K ohms. Same with white to red. If u get 9.5k ohms on both readings u have a bad main board. However to me I think your pump is bad. LG washers will not spin if they don't drain.

"LG Tromm WM2277HW will not


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

LE error in your LG front load washer is displayed when either the motor is not working or the control board thinks that the motor is locked up. A Hall effect sensor is used in these washer which monitors the speed and direction of the motor and then forwards this information to the control board. Hope you understand by now that this LE error is displayed when their is an issue with the motor or when the hall effect sensor sends wrong signal to the control. Conclusion is you'll have to check both motor and hall sesor and replace the part# that is bad, usually I have seen the sensor going bad. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

I have a LG Tromm WM2277HS that just flashed the LE signal. We have had this for a couple years and never had a problem...what do I need to do to fix? I have unplugged but should I drain the unit as...


LE stands for a Lock Error and is to do with the hall sensor on the motor.
  • Unplug the Machine for 30 minutes, and plug back in. Try washing again.
Here is the replacement Hall Sensor: http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Motor-Sensor/1268238

Before you pull the motor apart to replace the hall sensor, first of all, check the wiring to the motor.

Unplug the motor, plug it back in and try the machine again.
  1. To replace the sensor, you will need to remove the back panel to access the motor.
  2. Take a 17 mm socket and remove the center bolt holding the rotor assembly.
  3. Pull the rotor straight out and place it off to the side.
  4. Take a 10 mm socket and remove the 6 bolts holding the stator assembly.
  5. On the inside of the stator assembly, you will find the motor sensor connected to a 5 wire connector.
  6. Remove the connector and replace the sensor.
  7. Reinstall everything back together and the unit should work fine.

You could also try this:
  1. Unplug machine
  2. Drain machine
  3. Open machine and rotate barrel clockwise 4 times and counter-clockwise 4 times
  4. Plug in, power on, and run regular cycle and see if the error still comes up.

My Tromm Lg washer has a code that came up LE what does it mean


Hi


Error code LE indicates that either the motor is not turning or has locked up for some reason. It can also be due to Hall sensor which monitors direction and speed of the motor. If the sensor is faulty then also this error appears. Motor lock can be caused by several things from a loose connector, to a bad motor. To make sure it's not a locked motor, try turning the drum with your hand. And, if there is any 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 the motor seems to be fine then you would need to replace the Hall Sensor. To replace the hall sensor, 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. Hope this helps...

On a LG Tromm washer, what does error code ''LE'' mean?


LE indicates the motor is locked. Check the 3 pin connector at the motor and check the 4 pin connector at the main control if they look good ( no corrosion and fit tight) replace the Hall Sensor. You can enter your model # at www.appliancehelponline.com for diagrams and illustrations.
