What does the error message "LE" mean on my LG washing machine?

I have an LG washing machine model WM2277HW. During a washing cycle it stops and LE shows up on the window where the time left in the cycle is usually located.

The LE error message means "locked motor error" which means the control is not seeing the motor running.

The problem can be caused by a broken wire or loose connection but the most likely cause of the problem is a bad hall sensor.

The sensor can be accessed by removing the rear panel and the rotor assembly. See the image below for help with this. Remember to unplug the washer first.

Make sure the rotor and drum rotate. Anything blocking the tub rotation might trigger an LE code.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website:

Sears Home Services

.

You can check for loose connections but unless you are extremely confident using a meter I'd suggest a technician check and repair this problem.

I hope this information is helpful to you but submit another question with any additional details for further assistance.
