My 10 year old LG TROMM washer WM2277HW had LE error code recently. The machine would start, fill with water, never start to rotate, and then the washer would shut off and display the LE code. The tub could be manually spun quite smoothly with no noise. We have only used HE detergent (bought house last year so don't know about previous owner) however my wife did probably use more than necessary on every load in the last year.
I replaced the rotor position sensor switch 6501KW2002A and it worked perfectly for about 4 loads (with correct amount of HE detergent). Now I'm back to the LE error with the same issues. Recommended next steps? Thank you.
The LE is a locked motor error and you will want to check the following:
• 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
• The hall sensor is out of order/defective
