Two parter.

First Part: LE error code:

Started getting this error code.
first noticed with towel loads and started reducing load size.
now happens all the time.

spins clockwise, but not counter clockwise.

What all necessary to fix?

Second Part: Won't unlock.
Too often it won't unlock.
You hear it trigger 3 times, and sometimes I have to power on/off and time it just right to open the machine.

Not certain if the two are related.

Only other code I have seen is DE.

But have not checked to see if any codes via testing yet.

if it's dE, that's a Door Error
may be a bad Door Lock Assembly or Latch / cracked, etc.

Follow up question.

Have seeen this issue discussed before and sometimes the Strator is recommended to be replaced.

What is the point when you replace it?

Part of me likes only spending 20, but don't want to end up spending 150 when I could have spent 125.

That stated, it has been having problems spinning towels dry. Is this a function of the sensor or the strator?

Post the SERIAL NUMBER of the washer.
To eliminate:

Musty odor

L-O-N-G cycle times

Dingy/yellowing whites

Suds error message

Slow spin speeds

Intermittent water leaks (from rear of washer)

And other annoying symptoms which vary brand-to brand.

Read below:

The *correct* amount of HE (High Efficiency) detergent that should be used in any front load or agitatorless top load washer with tub sizes 3.0 cu ft and larger is as follows:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Wash Load

HE 2X: (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X: (1) Teaspoon

Perform a TUB CLEAN CYCLE every (4) months.

Use: "Tide Washing Machine Cleaner"
