Got this "LE" error today.  I have the service manual that I downloaded for a previous problem, and it gives me some possibilities for what the problem might be--but no way to troubleshoot.  It just says "Call service".  The possibilities given are:
  • The connector (3-pin, male, white) in the MOTOR HARNESS is not connected to the connector(3-pin, female, white) of STATOR ASSEMBLY.
  • The electric contact between the connectors (3-pin, male, white) in the MOTOR HARNESS and 4-pin, female, white connector in the MAIN PWB ASSEMBLY is bad or unstable.
  • The MOTOR HARNESS between the STATOR ASSEMBLY and MAIN PWB  ASSEMBLY is cut (open circuited).
  • The hall sensor is out of order/defective.
In another post in this forum, someone suggested these were generally "communication erros" and to unplug it for 20 minutes.  This worked for the poster with the problem, but not for some others.  I've unplugged mine, but I still have another 15 minutes before plugging it back in.

Is there any way to troubleshoot this further?

Let's stand down for now.  After 20 minutes unplugged, all seems normal.  If this is a precursor to something worse, please let me know.

Thanks.

Be sure to use no more than 2 tablespoons of good quality HE soap, too much soap kills front load washers....and it has to be HE soap....

We're using a good quality HE soap, but we may need to cut back on the amount.

And what about fabric softener, is that okay?

Thanks.

Fabric softner is wax, it will cause mold problems in your washer, mold loves to grow in fabric softher, I never ever put it into my WP Duet front load washer. I use dryer sheets.  Also be sure to wipe down the door and tub boot when done using it to dry them off and do not shut and lock the door, leave it open so it can air out and dry the tub and basket, I leave my door wide open when not in use to let it dry out....

I agree with Master Pegi here.
One more thing though.  Go out to your local appliance place and buy a packet of "Affresh".  This stuff is designed to clean the front loads and it does a tremendous job.  No, I'm not affiliated with them in any way, but it works great!!!  If you've been using fabric softener in the past, put the first tablet in the dispensor tray on hot water.  Then run another load with the remaining two tablets in the tub.  This will clean it like you wouldn't believe.  If this doesn't resolve your LE error, you're going to have to buy the stator assembly which comes with a new hall sensor or you can just get  the hall sensor which I believe is a little bit cheaper.
