Be sure you are using HE detergent and only about 1 Tablespoon for a load. You are ending up with too many bubbles in the machine and when it goes to spin the bubbles come out the air vent. There is a valve that closes during spin but bubbles are not strong enough to lift the valve it has to be water hitting it before it closes.

A tE error code on the display of the washer indicates a heating error, usually caused by a faulty thermistor.
  1. Unplug the washer from the power outlet for 10 seconds.
  2. Plug the washer back in and press the POWER button and then the SPIN SPEED button until No Spin is selected. Press the START/PAUSE button.
  3. Once the washer has drained, restart the wash cycle.
  4. If the tE error code appears again, close the water taps and unplug the washer. The washer will require repair service.

Hi there. In some cases if your dryer vent tube is bunched up behind the dryer and not extended properly or if vent tube is running up the wall to be vented to the outside it will cause water to build up in dryer vent tube. Make sure your flexible dryer tubing is not full of water or clogged with lint and make sure if you have an extended piece that goes to outside ventilation that that is not clogged with lint as well. Hope this helps you with your drying issues.

An LE error code on the washer's display indicates that the motor is locked, possibly due to a heavy wash load. Large and heavy sized loads will put a strain on the motor, causing the LE code to occur. Performing a reset on the washer will normally resolve this error with a reduced load size.Apr 25, 2018

Hi LakerFan, an LE code is generally a motor overload situation. A large comforter or a lot of bath towels will make the motor work too hard and start to overheat. Unplug the machine,hold the start button for 5 seconds and that should reset the error code. Hope that helps.

If you want to fix it, do it yourself and it will probably be and all-day-project.

A new washer versus having a technician fix it is going to be a touch call.

Here a video to watch if you want to do it:

Hi Santhosh, a PE error code is a water level/pressure switch problem. Could be one of three things. First,a bad wire from the control board to the pressure switch. Second,a clogged pressure tube from to tub to the pressure switch could be clogged. Remove tubing from the pressure switch and blow through it to make sure it's clear. Third is the pressure switch itself is bad and needs to be replaced. Hope that helps.
