Chosen Solution

Unplug the machine for 5 minutes to allow it to reset.

LE Error Code - Front Load Washer. An LE error code on the washer's display indicates that the motor is locked, possibly due to a heavy wash load. Large and heavy sized loads will put a strain on the motor, causing the LE code to occur. Performing a reset on the washer will normally resolve this error


Cause 1

Drain Pump

Sometimes, small objects or articles of clothing can get caught in the drain pump. To determine if anything is blocking the drain pump, remove the drain pump and check the pump for obstructions. If the drain pump is clear of obstructions, but is still noisy during the drain cycle, replace the drain pump.

Cause 2

Clogged Pump or Hose

Sometimes, socks and other small articles of clothing can get into the drain system and clog the pump hose or the pump itself. Remove the hoses from the pump and check for any obstructions.

Cause 3

Lid Switch Assembly

The lid switch assembly prevents the washer from spinning when the lid is open. If the lid switch assembly fails, the washer will not drain. To determine if the lid switch assembly is defective, use a multimeter to test each of the lid switches for continuity. If a lid switch does not have continuity, replace it.

Thank you for the suggestion. The code came back. :( Is there a way to do a master reset? :)


Is the machine still loaded? Any history of the machine that you can give. Any strange noises leading up to this failure?


Nothing is in the machine. I've tried with or without clothes and when the LE code comes up, there's still water in the drum. Also, when I manually spin the drum, I hear a little friction but not much. I've read that i may need to replace the sensor? This might be odd, but can I unplug the sensor and try running a load? :) Thanks again.
