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.

A couple weeks ago I had a problem with my washer during the wash cycle. It would make a grinding style noise and the tub would not spin during the wash cycle. However if I stopped it and did a rinse and spin it worked just fine. Someone suggested I needed to replace the rotary position sensor, so I ordered it from you guys and replaced it but now I have a different problem. Now the machine will go through the wash cycle but once it hits the rinse cycle now it makes the grinding noise the tub will not turn and it will not drain.

When the washer it turned on and started it begins the fill cycle normally. When the drum begins to turn it sounds like there is a groaning noise coming from inside but sometimes it will not spin. It seems like it wants to spin but hits an invisible barrier and after a few minutes of trying to spin will give the Le code. Before ordering parts I pulled it apart to check both the front and rear bearings and both spin freely with no resistance or noise. This leads me to believe it is the RPS causing all of my problems. I am just concerned with the noise that the drum makes when it do actually spin. Added note: When i spin the drum by hand in either direction it makes no noise at all.

Power on turns for less than a minute and stops. Then you hear a humming sound and nothing else after that. Not sure what to do on this. Please help.

I get a CE code after the wash completes the washing cycle and it drains out the water, and then when it begins to do the spinning cycle for the rinse the machine alarm goes off and it has the CE code on the screen. I checked for the OHM's reading on all three of the leads to the motor through my Multi Meter and it reads 8.4 OHM's. I am not sure if this is the correct reading for the motor. Could you please assist me with your knowledge as to what may be the problem, and for the solution to this problem. Thanks, I now await for your response.

At wash cycle start, the tub begins filling with water. After about 2 minutes, it attempts to turn the tub one-way, then the other. As it is trying to turn, it moves a degree or two and stops as if it has met resistance. After a minute or two of this it stops and error message LE is displayed. Note-the tub does turn easily by hand, either direction. I doubt this has any bearing, but the unit makes a noise as it is attempting to turn CCW. The noise most resembles the sound of a copper water pipe system just barely turned on-like water flowing. It makes little noise as it attempts to turn CW. I've unplugged the unit and left it unplugged for 2-3 minutes and turned the tub 3-4 revolutions in each direction, with no perceivable difference in effort. This seemingly began with no warning. Update: I have now removed the rear cover and can freely turn the drum. I do see reddish/rust colored dust at the 5 & 7 o’clock positions on the metal plate, which is secured by numerous bolts to the rear of the plastic drum. I see no visible damage to rotor or stator. The stator has @ 8.5 ohms on the three wires, checking from one to another. The rotor had a very slight dust on it but otherwise appeared OK. When a cycle is started, and if I anticipate the direction the drum will turn next and start it turning by hand, it will pick up on its own. Otherwise, when it attempts to turn, it “locks down” as if held by some force (magnetic, I suppose). I do see reddish/rust colored dust at the 5 & 7 o’clock positions on the metal plate, which is secured by numerous bolts to the rear of the plastic drum. Thanks for your help!

I am about to pull the unit away from wall and pull back off to try and shed more light on situation as I'm guessing the issue may be related to the motor or its components. Thanks for your help!

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.
