LE code on LG front loader

14 month old LG front loader comes up with LE error. Follow suggestions on LG website to clear and fix. After 3 seperate attempts it still errors out. Turns out LG has a problem with front loader direct drive motors. Motor parts are warranteed for 7 years, but you have to pay trip fee & diagnostic fee + labor to swap out covered motor ( close to $200) LG does not sell parts nor will it supply customers with internal parts ~ company policy as " it makes them liable if you get hurt servicing unit". Parts are only available to service centers. I want to make sure of problem before I start paying someone to repair a warranteed part. Does anyone know how to check the trigger assembly on the stator ? The windings check out fine but I believe the trigger is bad. LG will not even provide technical help with troubleshooting. Wish I had known this before I bought it. Live and learn I guess.

    I am so happy to read this ! I knew it was the sensor as all 3 windings in the motor assy ohmed out the same ! I ended up pullung out the complete stator assy and taking 40 miles away to a dealer / service center and the only thing they could do was replace entire motor assy, which after I gave them my model, serial, and date of purchase info they warranteed part for me on the spot ! I was ready to for over $90 for the whole assy, but the tech out back took great care of me and got me part for free. I'm still "fuming" over LG's policies, and still refuse to buy any of their products based on my contact with their "customer service". I also WILL NOT do business with my local service center either. But that experience with the out of town shop made my day ! And now to learn that I can get parts off the web WOOOHOOO !

Switch off machine, unplug, turn the heat setting on the water down. Plug it back in and select your wash setting. Good luck.

I had the same error code along with the drum "freezing" up. The first unit that was delivered 2 years ago leaked water from the detergent compartment and they sent a second unit. I have only had this unit for 2 years and I am very disappointed in the LG product. LG was no help on the phone and I the only people that could service it were 45min away from were I live. I took the advice of a posting on this website that it could be a part called the sensor assembly (#6501KW2002A) and ordered it from an online electronics store (www.mcminone.com). To get to the sensor assembly, you first unplug and take off the back plate that has 4 small screws. Next, unscrew the big bolt in the middle and take off the hubcap looking part the bolt was securing. Next unclip the two sets of wires on the bottom of the circle you are looking at (the set of wires to the right are connected to the sensor assembly you want to replace). Next you will unscrew the 6 or so smaller bolts to take off the circular piece that the sensor assembly is snapped to. Take it off, unclip the old sensor assembly and clip on the new one – and reassemble. This worked perfectly for me and the part only cost $18 bucks plus shipping. When working, this product works well but I will not be purchasing any LG products in the future.

Got the same error on my LG front loader tonight. Have had it for almost 2 years and this is the first problem. It seems that it is dead. I called LG and was instructed to unplug the machine, hold the play button for 3-5 seconds, wait 10 seconds, plug the machine in again, push power button, push spin speed button and set to medium, push play. The machine drained properly, but gave the LE error after 4 min of cycle time. A service technician from Best Buy will be here within 48 hrs.

How do I clear error code LE on LG top loader washing machine?

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.

How do you clear the le error code on a front loader so it will run?

Hi Wendy just read your posting.Unfortunately LE means the Hall sensor on your motor or motor is faulty. To clear the error code you need to either change the Hall sensor or motor.Most of the time the fault is the Hall sensor.Please reply for further help.Looking forward to your reply.

Ther should be a booklet located in your machine, that will explain each error code. It is usually located in the bottom panel or up in the console.

Unplug your machine for a few minutes or more and plug it back in. This will fix the LE error most of the time.

Le code on lg front loader thats

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!


This new....just call out LG to repair under warenty!!
