An LE Error Code is indicative of a ?Locked Motor? or ?Overload in the Motor?. This is rarely caused by a problem with the machine and in most instances resolvable over the phone. Q1:Are there suds in the drum? -->Oversudsing is the main cause of LE error codes. Using non-HE detergents or too much detergent will cause stress on the motor. Oversudsing can also cause leaking and odor. Follow the steps below to resolve an LE error code caused by oversudsing. --> Step 1: Unplug the unit and let machine sit for 30 minutes to allow suds to dissolve. Step 2: Press the POWER button to turn on the washer. Step 3: Press the SPIN SPEED button to select ?No Spin?. Step 4: Press the START/PAUSE button to begin drain only. Step 5: After cycle is complete, remove the items from the machine. Press POWER to turn on, RINSE&SPIN button, then START/PAUSE. Repeat, if necessary. This will remove excess suds and light residue from drum. Do this until no suds are seen in drum. Q2: Is this a new installation? -->In new installations, the code can appear simply due to a miscommunication between the control board and the motor. In this instance, the unit will simply need to be reset, much like rebooting a computer. Unplug unit, press and hold start/pause button for 5 seconds, plug unit in and test with a Rinse/Spin cycle. Q3:Is a large load size in a gentle wash cycle? -->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. Q4:Is the washer overloaded? -->Single bulky items (comforters) or extremely large loads can add extra weight to the drum which stresses the motor. Remove some clothing and restart. If it doesn?t work, unplug unit and let it sit for 30 minutes to allow motor to cool. Then restart the cycle.

Lg front loading washer flasing LE and stops midcycle

In new installations, this error can sometimes present because of a miscommunication between the control panel and the wash motor. In this instance, the washer simply needs to be reset.

Step 1: Unplug the washing machine.

Step 2: While the washer remains unplugged, press and hold the [Start/Pause] button on the front panel for 5 seconds.

Step 3: Plug the unit back in, and run a rinse and spin cycle to test if the LE code is cleared.

Washer starts then after few minutes stops and beeps with LE flashing. What does this mean?

LE = Load Error. If you do not have an unusually heavy or unbalanced load, replace the HALL sensor on the motor. Remove back access panel, remove bolt from center of motor. Remove rotor. Remove bolts holding motor coils to machine. Unplug wires. Un-clip sensor, replace with new sensor, and re-assemble. This is a rather easy repair.

I have an LG Tromm washer. I start it up it start

Hi,


LE code stands for locked motor error. When this error code appears in your front load washer it indicates a fault in the motor unit.

1 . Check the connections to the Coil/Stator at the rear of the unit possibly it should be something like a broken wire.

2 . Coil/Stator Assembly will be defective preventing the drive to operate.You should go for a replacement of that assembly.


Thank you !!

LG washer has a fault code of LE and won't run

LE is motor overload - Does it let you 'try' to start a load, make some noise, and then say LE after a minute or two? If so, you need to replace the hall sensor. See here: http://www.fixya.com/support/t260950-lg_tromm_wm2277hw_will_not_spin_both
