Innovative Repair for LG Washer Error LEBrand: LG
A client reached out to us with a perplexing issue on their LG washer, which displayed an ‘LE’ error code and failed to operate. Typically, this error suggests a motor struggling to rotate the drum, often due to an overload or a malfunctioning motor rotation sensor. While the sensor replacement usually resolves the issue, this situation presented an unexpected twist.
Our technician meticulously inspected the machine, initially suspecting a faulty rotation sensor. However, after thorough circuit testing, the root cause was identified within the motor itself. This specific motor, equipped with an asynchronous design, features a star-connected winding configuration. Inside, six windings pair up into three dual windings that connect to a single end, eventually linking to the control board.

The complication surfaced precisely at the junction where these windings intersected, creating an issue. Owing to excessive pressure, a fracture occurred in one of the windings, disrupting its connection. Instead of suggesting the potentially costly option of motor replacement, our highly skilled technician chose a more budget-friendly approach. Employing expertise, he diligently repaired the motor by thoroughly cleaning and re-soldering the compromised winding connections. This established a robust and dependable bond that ensures the appliance’s continued reliability.
Upon completing the repair, our technician re-evaluated the motor’s resistance readings, reassembled the unit, and tested it thoroughly. The washing machine resumed its functions seamlessly, sparing the client the cost of a new motor. We only charged the client for the repair service.
