Sub Symptom LE error code

Question Locked motor error code.

Answer LE error code: This indicates a locked motor condition. Please check the following conditions. Large loads of laundry can put a strain on the motor causing the LE error code. Try removing some clothing and restart. Excessive suds can cause the LE error code. Make sure the customer is using an HE (High Efficiency) detergent. They should decrease the amount of detergent until the machine washes without suds. A few bubbles can be expected. Areas that have �soft� water will usually need to use less detergent. If you suspect that excessive suds are the problem, let the machine stand for 30 min (motor cool down) and then run a rinse and spin cycle before restarting the load. If these directions are followed and the code persists, the machine will likely need service. .

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Make sure the error is not IE, which means water has not reached to the pre-set level within 4 min. since ERROR inlet valve operated or water has not reached to the normal level within 25 min.

The 'LE' error message indicates the control board has detected that the motor is either not turning, or has locked up for some reason. Monitoring the motor is the job of the Hall Effect sensor board which constantly determines the direction and speed of the motor and feeds that information back to the control board. If there is a problem between what the motor should be doing and what the hall effect sensor says the motor is doing, the 'LE' will be displayed and the cycle will be stopped.

Motor lock can be caused by several things from a loose connector, to a bad motor, or even the hall effect sensor failing or dislodging from it's mount. Any one or more of these components could have caused this error, but it is possible to separate the working from the non-working, just by following a process.

To make sure its 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.

The hall sensor is rather easy to replace, and is covered by a seven year part warranty (in 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.

Also check for ---



  • Check for the Connector (3 pin, male, white) in the Wire Harness, check if it is connected to the Connector (3 pin, female, white) of MOTOR. Reconnect or repair the connector.
  • The electric contact between the connectors¡a3 pin, male, white in the Wire Harness and 6 pin, female, white in the PWB ASSY(Main) is bad or unstable.Reconnect or repair the contact in the connector.
  • The Wire Harness between the MOTOR and PWB ASSY(Main) is cut(open circuited).Repair the damaged (open-circuited) WIRE HARNESS
  • The hall sensor is out of order/defective.Replace the PWB ASSY(Main).

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

SOURCE: LE fault code on LG

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

LG's 'LE' stands for 'Lock Error' indicating that there is a problem either with the door lock or the door locked sensor requiring a service call, 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!

LG WT1701CW error code LE. Fault code 513,7. What is wrong?


The LE error or fault code indicates that the washer motor is either overheating or has lost connection to the motor control circuit board. Turn off the machine for 30 minutes to let the motor cool down. Then, restart the washer. If the code comes back immediately the motor is not likely to be at fault and so you should check the wiring from the motor to the motor control board. Also, check the wiring and condition of the rotor position sensor, also called a HALL sensor. If the code doesn't come back on immediately, but returns after the washer has run for a while, the motor stator may be defective.

LG Tromm WM2075CW will not spin. I've done


Check first if repositioning the drain hose would help solve the problem. If your unit employs a drain valve, have it checked out. It has a solenoid or a small motor that opens and closes the part. Check as well the drain pump if it is running or no power is being supplied. Have the wire checked to see if there are loose connections.

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.

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.
