20 Most Recent LG WM-2077C Front Load Washer Questions & Answers


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.

This fe error or fault code indicates that the washer is overfilling due to a defective water inlet valve. The valve is not repairable and will need to be replaced.

LE means "Overload in Motor" Unplug the washer, remove clothes, wait 15 minutes for motor to cool down. try again. If problem persists you'll need a certified technician.

UE means unbalanced error. when you see this, it means the clothes are unevenly distributed in washer, it's basically unbalanced.

Hi just read your posting.In my experience with front loaders they all have transit bolts .The reason being is that the internal bowl and tank are separated from the outside frame by suspension rods and, or springs.The easiest way to tell on most front loaders is to look for the holes in the back of the frame of the machine where the bolts attach the frame to the tank .Hope this helps and good luck.

I think that should be a "DE" error code. On LG machines the DE error code is for a "Door Open Error".
Check the condition of the door lock, door hook and switch as this will give the error code above, the switch can be checked with a multimeter for condition. You might need to replace the door hook or the internally mounted switch.

Check the small tube that is connected to the outer wash tub and the pressure switch. When the water flows into the tub pressure is created in the upper half of the tub which causes the pressure switch to turn off the water inlet valve when the required amount of water is present.
Check the tube for debris that prevents the pressure switch operating correctly, if the tube is clear, the pressure switch needs to be checked, replace if faulty.
Low water pressure into the machine can also cause the inlet valve not to close properly, minimum pressure required is 20psi.

Your LG washing machine’s motor is controlled by the main circuit board. This is the brain of your washing machine. Depending on the selected program and which cycle is currently running, the PCB will tell the motor which speed to run at and which direction to turn. The Hall Effect sensor on the main circuit board is fed operational feedback from the motor. If there is any difference between what the motor should be doing and what it is actually doing – the appliance will stop operating and display an “LE” error.

For example: if the main circuit board tells the motor to rotate clockwise at a certain speed and the motor doesn’t start, the monitoring sensor will relay this inactivity to the main PCB and a “LE” error will persist. The same error would be displayed if the motor rotates in the wrong direction or runs at the wrong speed. It should be evident there are many faults that could produce the “LE” error code. Failure of one of the major components or a fault in the monitoring and feedback loop, could all lead to this problem. It is true however, some faults occur more regularly than others. Test for the most common causes of failure, eliminate them, and move on to more unlikely faults.

Many causes for the “LE” error are thought to stem from LG’s manufacturing process. Many customers found the wiring damaged or completely severed in their washing machine’s motor drive and feedback loop. If the wires were installed too close to a moving part, they may be vulnerable to mechanical wear once the machine starts to operate. A washing machine vibrates a lot during a spinning cycle, so it is conceivable wires could be damaged in this way. Check the cables feeding the motor for any obvious signs of damage. If you cannot see any problem, disconnect those wires and check for conductivity with a multi-meter. There should be almost no resistance detected in the wire.

If you find a damaged wire, replace it and ensure the new wire is well out of the way of any moving parts. If the wire is faultless you will have to move on and continue fault finding. Try and turn the motor’s rotor by hand, if there is any real friction or if the rotor is seized – you will have to replace the motor. Faultless wiring and a washing machine motor - with the existence of an “LE” error code, indicates a fault in the main system board. It should be noted though; this is unlikely to be the cause of the problem. Almost all “LE” errors indicate faulty wiring - so ensure you have properly checked this before installing a new PCB.

if its new machine,,might problem with hole sensor,,,

Steve R is right except that if the splines in the rotor are stripped you will have to buy a new rotor or the bolt will just continue to lossen itself up. The rotor is $64.33 online. Still a ten minute fix, after you wait a week for part delivery.
