I would guess you are getting a "tE" error code. that is a bad thermistor. pretty common. and it starts out as an intermittent error. it really is an easy fix. great online videos. check out appliancepartspros.com for both video and parts or repairclinic.com for video and parts. or youtube.com

LE error (checked stator and replaced HAll sensor already)


If the control board does not receive the input it will not operate does the door lock? However:
The attachment shows how to diagnose and repair a failed hall sensor, the usual cause of
an LE error code.

DO NOT replace the stator until the hall sensor has been tested. 98% of LE error codes are
caused by failed hall sensors.

[DD motor SVC check process ]

Pre Check
1) 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.
2) Don't replace the PCB when the hall sensor is replaced.
Check the hall sensor as shown in the new process.
O have a file I can send but can not upload here if you want it, contact me melissamaemartin@yahoo.com please put hall sensor in subject line. Thanks

LG wm6042h washing machine. LE code for motor overload.


This is normally a common problem on LG tromms. The cause of this error code is as stated "motor overload" . The most common fix to this problem is replacing the hall effect sensor. But.... If you weren't getting this code before replacing the bearing I would recommend checking the sensor to make sure it's plugged in correctly.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

LE error in your LG front load washer is displayed when either the motor is not working or the control board thinks that the motor is locked up. A Hall Effect sensor is used in these washers which monitors the speed and direction of the motor and then forwards this information to the control board. Hope you understand by now that this LE error is displayed when there is an issue with the motor or when the Hall Effect sensor sends wrong signal to the control. Conclusion is you'll have to check both motor and hall sensor and replace the part# that is bad, usually I have seen the sensor going bad. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

LG frontloader runs thru majority cycle & towards the end it stops & flashes "LE" code. I have replaced Hall sensor.


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. The reason this particular unit has been on the injured list for so long is the first tech never followed a trouble shooting process to ensure the parts being replaced had actually failed.

The washer does not run through the wash cycle. The door locks but nothing further happens. There is an "LE" error message but I do not have a manual that explains what that means. Please help.


The LE error message means locked motor error and it is almost always accounted for an out-of-order Hall Effect Sensor. Other causes includes defective Main Board and broken wiring harness.

To check the Hall Effect Sensor:
  1. Unplug the machine.
  2. Remove the top plate assembly by unscrewing the two screws on the back of the top plate.
  3. Look for the Main Board assembly on the rear left side of the machine.
  4. Remove the power connector and sensor switch assembly.
  5. Remove the Main Board assembly protection cover by releasing the latches along its sides.
  6. Look for the 4-pin white connector with white, gray , red, and blue wires. It is the wiring harness going to the Hall Effect Sensor. Disconnect it from the board.
  7. Using a multimeter, check the resistance between the white and blue wires and between the white and red wires. Resistance should read about 10k ohms.
  8. If either resistance reads open, check for a broken wiring harness and repair or replace as necessary. Otherwise, the Hall Effect Sensor is defective and must be replaced.
  9. If the tests above show that the Hall Effect Sensor seemed to be good, you have to check if the Main Board delivers 10 to 15 Vdc supply to it.
  10. Reconnect the machine to the power outlet.
  11. Press POWER but DO NOT PRESS START.
  12. Set the multimeter to DC volt and measure the voltage between white and gray wire terminals on the Main Board. Voltage should be 10 to 15 Vdc. Otherwise, the Main Board is defective and must be replaced.
  13. Connect the red test lead to the red wire and the black test lead to the gray wire.
  14. Turn the motor rotor slowly by hand.
  15. You should measure a pulsating 10 Vdc if the Hall Effect Sensor is okay.
  16. Repeat the step with the red test lead connected to the blue wire.
  17. If you measure a 10 Vdc but not pulsating, the Hall Effect Sensor is defective and must be replaced.
Feel free to inform me if the Hall Effect Sensor or the Main Board needs to be replaced and if you want to replace it yourself.
