Not wanting to clutter the threads and make a new one on the same issue:
Doing a normal washing, the tub will start filling and I see the tub rotating in very short sudden steps then the dreaded LE error shows up. I have unplugged the unit for more than 20 mins, then ran the option to Rinse and Spin and set to No Spin, and the washer successfully ran thru that program with no load.
Putting back my load that is heavy due to water saturation(medium size) and no new detergent added, the same LE error and symptoms remains.
Not putting back the load the washer works under Normal cycle..... hmmm. So perhaps it is a weak motor? Can it be the stator assembly and not just the Hall Sensor?
If I need to replace the stator assembly, then it is not worth it for me to fix this washer, unfortunately. It is 8 years old now and was working splendidly unless now.
I have the parts removed, so fixing it myself is not an issue.
Thanks for your advice!
