WHAT DOES ERROR CODE LE MEAN


Good Morning Friend, thank you for your inquiry!

I see that you are receiving error code LE on your Frigidaire washer. However, is it possible that the code is missing characters? I show that LE is an invalid error code. May I have your model number please? You can normally find the serial tag (which lists your model number) on the upper front, as you open the door. Also, think about what may have happened prior to this occurrence. For instance, did you notice any strange functions or any other error codes prior to this issue? With this information I can better address the issue at hand. Thank you! - Z

LE error on washer. What can I do without a tech?


The *dreaded* "LE" error is overwhelmingly caused or triggered by incorrect type detergent **OR** too much *HE* detergent (a special low sudsing detergent).
In all LG washers-when too much detergent has been used-this will cause the "LE" error to be displayed & the wash cycle will be interrupted. Unplugging the washer for more than one minute will cause the MAIN BOARD (computer) to power down and re-boot when the washer has been plugged back in.
On LG washers built *before* 2008-after several "LE" error events-the error *cannot* be reset by unplugging the washer. This indicates that the HALL EFFECT SENSOR has failed and will need to be replaced.
On all LG washers built during and after 2008-a more robust resistor was used in the HALL EFFECT SENSORS-which eliminated damage caused by higher electrical loads placed upon the sensors due to oversudsing. HALL EFFECT SENSORS virtually never fail in 2008 and newer LG washers but the "LE" error will still occur if too much or the wrong type of detergent is used. This will be "resettable" by unplugging/replugging the washer.
The CORRECT amount of HE (High Efficiency) detergent to be used is as follows:
HE : (2) Tablespoons Per Wash Load
HE 2X : (1) Tablespoon
HE 3X : (1) Teaspoon
USE THESE AMOUNTS RELIGIOUSLY-NO EXCEPTIONS-IN ALL FRONT LOAD WASHERS WITH 3.0 cu ft DRUMS AND LARGER

Have a top loading Kenmore elite high efficiency washer model 796.2927, 2 years old this thanksgiving is showing erroe code LE? what do i do to fix?


On most Kenmore front load washers the LE error indicates a LOCKED MOTOR ERROR. This can be caused by:

  1. Loose motor harness connection.
  2. Failed HALL SENSOR.
  3. Failed STATOR.
  4. Failed ROTOR (cracked magnet).

Lg washer wm2077cw had le error and did not work, blew in to tubing connecting tub to a sensor at top and now my reading went from 230 to 256. washer wont stop filling , leaks out front door. what is wrong...


When you blew into the tubing, you destroyed the water level sensor. You will need to change the water level sensor to stop the unit from over filling. That part number is 6601ER1006E. As for the LE error code, you one of 2 things go bad. Either the motor sensor has failed or the control board has failed. Chances are the motor sensor has failed and is the cheaper part to replace. The part number for that is 6501KW2002A
Good luck

What does LE error code mean & how do I fix it?


LE = Load Error. LE errors can be caused by unbalanced, very bulky, or very large loads. First try unplugging the machine for a few minutes and then retry a cycle at a slower spin speed. If you still get the LE error:

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 (in the US). 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

Note: you do not list your model number, so the part number for your Hall sensor may be different than posted above. Always confirm part number via looking up from your specific model number before ordering any parts.

Samsung washing machine LE error


Hi there,

Press "end of cycle". 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.
(that information taken from a link).

Good Luck!!

Thanks

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.

LE code on lg washmachine


The LE error code means that you have a motor problem.  The high pitched noise means that the motor sensor has failed and needs to be replaced.  You will need to call a qualified LG technician to replace the sensor.
