This is caused by a bad Hall Sensor. when it is bad it tells the computer that there is too much load on the motor, therefore giving you the LE code, otherwise known as a (Locked Rotor Error). It is cheap and fairly easy to replace, the part can be ordered at Sears Parts, using your model number. For information on how to perform your repair, please reply.

Thanks, Repairman45

I have a Lg WM2277HW front load washer. I replaced P/N 6501KW2002 (hall sensor), unfortunately still recieving error code LE. I even ran normal wash cycle no spin and 3 rinse and spins w/ no spin to...


Make sure hall sensor is snapped in to correct location and is secure. Take a look at repair videos from repairclinic.com or appliancepartspros.com for guidance. And the error code is "LE" for sure not "tE" which is sometimes confused between the two.

What does the code LE indicate?


The LE error code means that you have a motor sensor problem and the sensor may need to be replaced.

WASHING MACHINE NOT WORKING, SHOWING ON SCREEN MESSAGE "LE"


The LG website explains it:

http://lgknowledgebase.com/kb/index.php?View=entry&EntryID=6250

"Over-sudsing is the main cause of LE error codes. Using non-HE (high efficiency) detergents or too much detergent will cause stress on the motor."

LE error after full cycle toward end of wash it comes up with an error. not sure if it LE or upside down F E? Anyone have this prob?


LE toward the end of cycle probably means you had a bulky load which you tried to spin out at the high spin speed setting. Use a low spin speed with bulky loads. For this load now, just put power on and without selecting a cycle, push the spin speed selector button until a low speed comes up (should be about a 14 minute display) then push start to do a pump and spin only cycle.

Error codes


Hello,
Here are the common error codes for the LG machines.

LG Washing Machine Error or Fault Codes

If you have a LG Washing Machine you may see an error code come up and wonder what it is. Here are the common error or fault codes that will be displayed on the LG machine.

OE

This means that the washer has tried for ten minutes to drain the water out of your machine and the water did not drain out.

UE

This means that the load in the drum is out of balance causing excessive vibration when spinning.

IE

This means that the washer has not filled with water in 8 minutes.

LE

This means that the motor and the control panel are not talking to each other properly

PF

Power Failure – The power has gone out to the machine and then has come back on

FE

This means that there is too much water in the machine

PE

This means that the water level sensor is not working properly

CE

The washer motor has received and over current condition

TE

This means that your heating sensor is not working properly

SE

This means that you had a temporary sensor error

HE

This means that you had a temporary heater problem

DHE

This means that you had a temporary dry heater problem

This will give you a basic idea of what has caused your error code.

Le error code what is this


this code means a Locked Motor Error. you need to check the hall sensor it may be defective and you may also have to replace the Stator Assembly. this will require an appliance service call by a qualified LG technician.

I HAVE A LG TROMM WM2277HB and its not spining i keep getting a LE ERROR CODE


First try unplugging the machine for a few minutes and then retry a cycle. If you still get the LE error:

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 (in the US). 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!
In the US, find a service provider using your zip code at http://us.lgservice.com/index_b2c.jsp or call LG at 800-243-0000

TE message. machine turns on but nothing else. I found out the message means a thermastor problem


Perhaps the error is "[-E" and it means the thermistor is out of error. Replacing it will correct the problem
