SOURCE: I need to replace my hall sensor - LG WM0264H

I fixed this myself. I found an on-line LG service manual and bought the hall sensor (about $30). It took all of a half an hour to repair this myself. I read that too much soap and fabric softener will make the circuits on the mother board heat up and short out the hall sensor (gunk and resistance on the wash drum). It is running like a top again. The local parts store said to periodically run bleach and water through the soap, and softener despenser to help keep it clean.

SOURCE: LE Error Code- I replaced the Hall sensor & the problem returned

You need to replace the motor that goes on the hall sensor. We've had the same issue. What kind of soap are you using and are you only using 2 Tablespoons of detergent no matter what the load size? The only reason these usually go bad is becasue your not using HE soap or your using too much soap.

Ours goes bad becasue we can't use any HE detergent becasue my son is highly illergic to all brands of HE. I have no choice but to use regular soap. But we have had to replace the hall sensor twice in 3 years.

SOURCE: LG LE error. WM2277HW Have replaced the Hall Sensor and ran

As long as that Tide HE is not 2x or 3x concentrated, that would be the maximum amount of detergent for a large, heavily soiled load. Lighter soiled and/or smaller loads should be about 1 tablespoon. If 2x concentrate soap, use only half that. The reason this could cause an LE error is that suds between the inner and outer drum will cause excessive drag on the inner tub, with the possible result of an LE error. I'd try to run a load on Sanitary, heavy soil level, with no clothes, and a washer cleaner such as Affresh, Washer Magic, Whirlaway hot tub cleaner, Smellywasher cleaner, or Tide washer cleaner to remove any possible build up of soap residue from the outer tub area.
Sometimes, cycle selection/ loading level/ load type can cause LE errors. 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.
Another possiblility would be a loose electrical connection dealing with the Hall sensor, at the sensor, the control board, or (much more unlikely) the wire connecting them.
On rare occasion, the main control board can be at fault, but generally, replacing the Hall sensor does take care of the problem. (over 90% of the time)

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. You are right, 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. The hall sensor is rather easy to replace, and is covered by a seven year part warranty (in 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. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

SOURCE: how can I make the

You can turn the power on, and hit the spin speed button, and then start it. It should drain out.

If your still getting an LE error, and already have replaced the Hall sensor, it's most likely the Stator. If you know your date of purchase, this is most likely still under the 7 or 10 year warranty. Meaning LG pays for the part (over $100.00+),

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

New Hall Sensor & Rotor and code LE with some ringing noise


The LE code is displayed when the motor goes into an overload situation, if you have changed the Hall sensor and rotor, the only other problem is the stator overheating which will bring on the LE display.
Check the stator assembly, replace is faulty.

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.

How do you clear the le error code on a front loader so it will run?


Hi Wendy just read your posting.Unfortunately LE means the Hall sensor on your motor or motor is faulty. To clear the error code you need to either change the Hall sensor or motor.Most of the time the fault is the Hall sensor.Please reply for further help.Looking forward to your reply.

LG washer WM 2277HW Wont spin LE on control panel


LG error codes:
IE: Water level (246) was not reached in 8 minutes
UE: Imbalance: Load too, small too large
OE: Drain problem took longer than 10 minutes to drain
FE: Overflow issue drain pump running to comp
PE: pressure sensor (sensor out)
dE: door error. open door. switch is out
LE (with a a slash in the
middle of L. Upside down F) Thermistor out
CE: Over amping Too much soap wrong soap
LE: hall sensor shorted/destroyed from sudslock
bE: Ball sensor loose connection/out of order
EE: eeprom out test mode only
PF: power failure momentary interruption of shocktricity

LG washer notes:
Problem:
An occasional LE error but always a slow or no spin.
Solution:
A Red wire going to the Hall sensor was intermittent. You can test this from the main board connector down to the connector on the hall sensor by checking continuity. There is an intermediate connector down by the motor/hall sensor so you can isolate the problem even more. Problem was in the short wire harness that connects directly to the motor and hall sensor. Could not find the open point of the wire so added a new red wire and integrated it into the harness.

Displays an LE error code - what does this mean and how do I fix it?


Codes for LG/Kenmore washers:
IE: Water level (246) was not reached in 8 minutes
UE: Imbalance: Load too, small too large
OE: Drain problem took longer than 10 minutes to drain
FE: Overflow issue drain pump running to comp
PE: pressure sensor (sensor out)
dE: door error. open door. switch is out
LE (with a a slash in the
middle of L. Upside down F) Thermistor out
CE: Over amping Too much soap wrong soap
LE: hall sensor shorted/destroyed from sudslock
bE: Ball sensor loose connection/out of order
EE: eeprom out test mode only
PF: power failure momentary interuption of shocktricity
FYI:
Nearly all brands of "HE" detergent have incorrect instructions.

The correct amount is as follows:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Wash load

HE 2X (double concentrated) : (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X (triple concentrated): (1) Teaspoon

This reduces/prevents:

1) Musty Odor

2) "LE" Error/Interrupted Cycle

3) L-O-N-G Cycle Times (longer than time displayed)

4) Insufficient Cleaning Results

5) Small Water Leaks from the air vent behind the washer or at the
front door gasket

6) Damaged Hall Effect Sensor (on 2007 or older LG washers)

7) Reduced Spin Speeds (laundry not spin-dried effectively)

Getting code LE supposed to be motor overload according to manual do motors usually go bad or could it be in circuit board control


Motors rarely go bad. A Hall sensor, clipped onto the motor, can go bad, and is rather easy to replace. (the whole motor is easy to replace, for that matter) LE codes can also be caused by bulky loads, like quilts, sleeping bags, pillows, etc., being washed using a high spin speed. Always use a low spin speed for those type items. So, unplug machine, and replug. try another load, making sure to use appropriate spin speed for the load. If LE re-occurs, change the Hall sensor. (It has at least a 5 year part warranty on it in the US) To change Hall sensor, unplug machine, remove back cover, remove bolt from center of motor rotor, remove rotor, remove wire clamps and ground screw, remove 6 bolts holding motor stator (with all those electric coils), unplug wires from stator and sensor, unclip white plastic hall sensor from stator, replace hall sensor with new one, re-assemble. Sounds like a lot, but on a difficulty scale of 1 -10, it's only about a 3.
