Usually I replace the hall sensor. If still broken.... dig deeper. don't forget to check the wiring!  Good luck though sometimes le error can be a pain;>

Tech is usually located inside front panel by the pump. Remove the lower pump access door and remove the plastic surround. You can usually reach through the hole and grab the tech sheet.

Kicks major Samsung booty first, asks diagnostic questions later.

If the Serial Number is 805Kxxx or higher---the HALL EFFECT SENSOR is not likely at fault.

 

In most cases---an "LE" error on an LG washer built after May 2008---is the result of using the incorrect amount or type of detergent.

 

If the washer is older than 2 years---and is used *heavily*---there's a possibility of a damaged wire in the harness which runs/routes from the Hall Sensor to the base of the washer (rear of the washer).

 

Always replace the WIRE HARNESS (6877ER1016H)---if it has been determined that detergent usage is absolutely not an issue/cause.


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"

I'm late on updating this situation, but right before I walked away my helper notice a loose wire on the quick connect I asked him to reseat. Both wires on the thermistor quick connect were broken, and you couldn't tell by looking. I even disconnected the plug and didin't notice.

<<<Both wires on the thermistor quick connect were broken>>>

 

*************

 

This would cause an error of "tE" rather than "LE".
