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.

Greg for Model Number WM2277HW

ANSWER Greg, 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 circuited). • The hall sensor is out of order/defective
