Model Number: LDF7811ST

Le error code, motor and blade spin freely, blade not locked,  can't find any broken wires.  How do I make sure this needs a motor replacement? what ohm should a good motor read. 

This problem occured when I opened the door while running and I accidently hit the on/off button.  I never did this before.  Could I have caused a computer glitch by doing this.
If I need a motor where do I get one cheap

thanks

I have the service manual for it.  but I'm still stuck.  I'm going to take off the door again today and see if I missed a broken wire.

I found 5 broken wires.  The wires become embeded in the sound proofing black rubber sprayed on the door.  Whenever you open the door it caused the wires to kink so I soddered all the connections and put some packing tape on the door so wires can slide freely.

thanks

LDF7810ST : LE error code, broken wires
« Reply #6 on: September 09, 2009, 09:53:44 AM »

I had the LE code and found one broken red wire in the tar-like stuff. The cut was also pretty clean, as if it had been cut by a knife. Another wire had a cut, but only in the insulation. Repaired both and separated all the wires from the tar substance. It did the trick.

I like the idea of applying some material on the tar to let the wires slide freely. I think I'll reopen and do just that.

Many thanks to those who posted their solution!
