I've read about this problem and I realize I may just need to get the rotor position sensor and replace it, but I wanted to run this scenario by you.
This machine had a broken door hinge that I just replaced. I had to take the top and front covers off because I dropped a vital part down inside the housing while attempting to replace the hinge from the outside. (Doh)
Everything seemed to go well during this repair, however now that it's back together and I try to run it, I get the dreaded LE error code. I have never gotten it before. I unplugged, replugged and tried again. The drum spins with no rubbing or funny noises. When the machine is trying to cycle, it fills with water, but then immediately gives the LE code. I don't hear anything unusual (as others have described) like it's trying to turn the drum and cannot.
I always use HE detergent.
Any thoughts before I go ahead and order the rotor position sensor?
