Overload in motor noted as LE

Sir I have jsut finished doing a load of laundry and was preparing to do a second when the my washing was beeping. When I checked the LE was on signifying an overload in motor. I chut off the water and unpluged the power instructed in the manual. The solution in the manual is to call for service. This machine is 5 months old. I have a large family with lots of laundry. Is there something I can check first before I call for service? I appreciate you taking the time with this.

    thanks so much for you excellent advice. I did shut the machine off and when I plugged it back in I ran a cycle with nothing in the washer, the washer seems to be running fine now. I did put heavy wet towels in the washer and then continued to load it. Do you think this was the problem?? once again thanks

Frenchie, the LE has to do with the motor sensor, There should be a 3 pin connector in the motor harness that connects to the stator. It could of come loose, or the sensor itself gone bad. The other scenerio would be the sensor harness to the main board had opened or came loose. Since this machine is under warranty, you wouldn't want to void it. You can try to put it into the self test by doing the following: Turn the unit off. Press the spin speed and soil level buttons together, while holding them, press the power button. The buzzer should sound twice. Now by pressing start/pause button you can advance it through 12 tests. Everything from slow tumble, spin, inlet valves, circulation pump, drain pump. The 12th being door unlock and power off. I don't know if this will work or not but it's a chance to get you going again until factory service can get out there....Catriver...post back.

Washer won't fill. code LE

Try unplugging and replugging. Apparently it does a reset of something. It worked for me. I would make sure you don't have to much laundry in the machine too.

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. .

Greetings jannd,

The message "LE" can indicate that the thermal overload protection circuit in the motor has been tripped. The remedy for this can be to allow the washer to stand for 30 minutes to allow the motor to cool, then restart the cycle. If the LE error code still appears, unplug the washer and call for service. Keep in mind that this unit carries a 7 year warranty on the motor also.

I hope this helps!
Best regards,

Dorothy

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.
