I recently purchased a rotor position switch from your website.
What will be the next part needed to be replaced, if the LE error code comes back on & shuts off the LG - TROMM washer?
Answer Hello Thomas. You will need to order and replace the wiring harness on the unit. Then if the issue continues, check and make sure none of the magnets in the rotor are cracked. Last would be the board.
Error code PE, I think it is the Water Level Sensor? if so, can we buy the part & do it ourself?
The PE error code represents that the pressure switch has either a bad connection or has failed. Check the connections at the pressure switch and at the blue 4 pin connector at the main board. Test the pressure switch in test mode. If the initial reading is less than 60 or more than 104 the switch has failed and must be replaced.
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
Drum is not turning-
Code 1F81 or "IF81" displayed
I can not find a part this correlates to-
Answer Hello JG. That code is not listed. Usually when this happens, it is a primary control board failure 6871ER1078T. Thanks.
