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.
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.
Answer Hello Bell. See if the humming noise is coming from the water valve. If there is power to the valve, and no water, you will need to check the screens and if clear, replace the water valve in the unit. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
My washer has an error that says looks like a upside down F &E Solution says unplug power & call for service. What does this mean? Cannot keep washer balanced, been like this for 3 yrs.
The Upside down fE is an indicator that there is a thermistor error and you will want to test the thermistor resistance and check for broken wires to the thermistor. For the unbalance issue you will want to check the shocks to ensure that they are good.
