I was doing wash and several times restarted machine after in went into LE code (motor overload). A technician replaced the sensor less than a year ago. Now the LE code is back and the machine fills then when it should start washing it just sits and makes a humming and soft clicking noise for a while and nothing happens, the tub does not start to move or spin. I removed the stator/motor part with the sensor attached and thought I would just buy a new motor but your previous similar questions seem to suggest it is the sensor or the control panel and not the motor. Any ideas what this is. I do not want to start replacing parts on a 7 year old machine when I may be better off to just go out and buy a new machine for $500-600. Is 7 years for this type of appliance the trouble zone as soon as warranty expires?
ANSWER Hello Bev. Based on the error code. You will need to check and make sure none of the magnets on the rotor are cracked. If not, you will need to replace the stator assembly 4417FA1994G on the unit.
