This is usually a communication error, unplug the machine for 20 minutes and then see if it returns when power is restored...

How long has the unit been in service? How many loads? What kind of Detergent are you using? If you haven't been using the HE type for f/l'ers, run the hottest cycle through with at least a cup of white vinegar to remove any sludge that may have built up. If it was Tide with Downy give the rest of the bottle to yoor top load neighbor.

This problem happened a couple of weeks ago.  Then we tried the unplug, wait, plug, rinse and spin cycle, but nothing happened.  By the time the repair guy got here (a week later), it worked.  He looked in the back and did a couple of hmmms and charged me $130 for coming out.  He strongly suggested I get a service contract on it because problems are $expewnsive$.  I bought the machine 14 months ago. 

After 4 days and 5 loads, the machine is down with the LE code again.  I've gone through the unplug cycle, but it's not working.  The repair guy is due in two days. Kaundry days are bad enough, I can't continue this way.  So, are there any step 2 or 3 if the unplug doesn't work?  Can one buy a service contrat after the unit has failed?   Does anyone know the cost of the CCU replacement?

Thanks.

Yup, that's the guy.  I got a call from the repair guy today saying his boss says it's definitely the stator (on cellphone, couldn't get a clearer reading), so they are ordering one and will install it next week.  Does that have anything to do with the sensors you mentioned?  Since there are many people who reported the same error code, seems there would be a known fix.  I googled LE error code for LGs, many hits, but all seemed to start again after the unplug.

LE LOCKED MOTOR ERROR


• 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.

doesn't LG have a longer warranty on the motor in the USA?

it was 2 years up here in canada, read your book

the hall sensor is more likely to cause the LE error than the stator.....

however changing the stator will acomplish the same cause it comes with the hall sensor attached, prolly considerably more expensive then just the hall sensor though

Hello All,

I have the LG WM2432HW front loading washer and the dreaded LE error.

The unit was bought in September of 2004. I have gotten the LE error three times in the past. All three times I have used the unplug for X time period and all was good after that.

This time that is not working for me. After I plug the washer back in I do a "Drain and Spin" to get the water out. I then leave it for a while and try a load (one bed sheet). I get two different results based on how much time I leave the unit unplugged for.

If I leave it for a few hours the drum will try and clock wise spin. It moves the drum about a half inch and then it rocks back. It will then spin the drum counter clock for two full rotations. Then it will try the clock wise same as in the bigining and then back to the counter clock wise which works. On the next clock wise I get the "LE error".

If I only wait 20 or 30 min's I get no counter clock wise rotations and after the fifth attempt to move the drum I get the "LE error"

I was able to find at a cost the service manual for the washer. When I do a "QC Test Mode" the led display according the the service manual should be 18:9C but my unit shows a 18:7C. All the led segments are working. I am thinking this is just a version thing. 2002-12-28

I have shelves of service manual that I have collected over the years and this has to be one of the worst I have ever seen. There is just enough information to get you in but you will find yourself in over your head very quickly if you are not in the above average percentile when it comes to being mechanically and electrically adept. Thank goodness Im.

But now I need help. Everyone on the internet is talking about the "Ball Sensor" and the "Hall Sensor". I can find the "Ball Sensor" in the manual and its part number as well it looks to be an easy fix. As for the "Hall Sensor" The manual talks about it in the trouble shooting but then you never hear or see it in the rest of the rest of the manuel.

The "Ball Sensor" two parts
A490 Bracket Assembly 4811ER3001A
A495 Sensor Assembly 6501FA2462C

Can anyone help me track down a "Hall Sensor" part number.

Thank you
