I have replaced the hall sensor on my washer and it still gives me the LE code after a few loads have run. I have to unplug it, drain it as much as possible and wait up to a day to start washing again. I have read the manual, and it looks like it could be a bad connection between motor harness and the stator assembly, the motor harness and the main pwb assembly, or the motor harness is cut. Thing is, the manual does not tell me what the motor harness is. How do I figure out which is the culprit? I am trying to save some $$ as I am unemployed at the moment and I have a feeling it would cost a few hundred to hire a repairman. Could you help?
Thanks in advance!
ANSWER Hello Irene,
The motor harness is the mass of wires that lead to the motor. I would do this before trying anything else: Unplug each connector and re-connect it one at a time and as you do, inspect the ends of each one. Many times a wire will lose connection inside the harness and this causes intermittent problems which can be next to impossible to locate and correct. Most of the issues with these units are poor connections. Let us know if you need further assistance.
