I purchased this washing machine a bit over two years ago. I am receiving error code "LE". I have tried unplugging it and rebooting; rotating the drum four turns slowly by hand 4 times in both directions; draining it and cleaning the filter. Nothing has worked. Online advice seems to suggest the hall sensor. If you have any thoughts, I'd appreciate hearing from you.
The LE error code is representative of a Locked motor error. In most cases it is the rotor position sensor that causes the LE error code but if you check the following it will narrow it down.
• 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 (opencircuited).
• The hall sensor is out of order/defective.
How come it stop spinning after rinsing. It is also making a noise during rinse cycle?
You will want to access the tech sheet and run a diagnostic cycle to see if there are any stored error codes. This issue could be caused by a door lock issue in which the door lock is not sensing that it is locked in order to put the unit into a full spin. For the noise issue you will want to check to make sure that there is nothing in the pump that is causing the noise.
Is this part easy to change on my own? Or do I need a professional repair person to change it?
Answer Hello Mark. The RPS sensor is not hard to replace. Just remove the rotor and stator from the outer tub and remove the sensor from the stator. Insatll the new sensor 6501KW2002A on the stator.
