LE error? Don't buy a new sensor, don't call a repairman and don't scrap it. The fix is EASY!

Turn the drum 4-5 times by hand to resettle the load, move spin speed to highest, Quick Wash, Speed Wash. It shoudl work just fine. I've had to do this a few times over the last 5 years. Why everyone wants you to BUY parts is beyond me....maybe they need to make some $$ ?

    i just experienced the "LE" error code and thankfully was able to solve it without a service visit:) thought i should post on this site, as i had read this page looking for help, on how to go about fixing. i called the LG customer service number and the lady on the phone told me it could be because of soapy water. sounds silly, isnt that what a washer deals with all day? anyhow, the following easy steps solved the error code and now we are back in actiion. step 1: unplug washer. step 2: turn off water. step 3: drain water out of the machine through the hose. step 4: turn water and power back on. step 5: select rinse and spin cycle, do not add clothing or soap to this. you will notice that no "LE" error message comes on and the machine goes through the cycle as it should.
    et voila, you will have a working washer like i do now.

Try these... -Clean out the drain pump inside and below.

- Pull the suction boot off the drain pump, clean out any gookus.

- Blow through the drain hose starting from the connection at the pump.
make sure it is not clogged follow the line from under the sink and disonnect it from under the sink and make sure it is clear
- If all else checks out, replace the pump.

The Duet hides the pump/filter access behind the lower panel. Most LG, Miele and ASKO washers have it right up front for easy access. I guess keeping such a base element out of view helps sales.

Long Drain error code.
If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes, the water valves are turned off and "F/02" is flashed.
Press, PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.
NOTE: After 4 minutes the "Sud" error will be displayed, then 4 minutes later the "F2 error code" will be displayed.
Potential Causes:(1) Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
(2) Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running.
(3) Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects.
If the above does not correct the problem replace the pump

0E error code.


Open the access door at the lower left on the front of the washer. Drain remaining water using the small hose. Unscrew and remove the large knob. Clean out filter. If filter was clean, you may need a new pump motor, or something may have made it past the filter and is jamming the pump impeller. Check for a kink too if all is clear then you will probably need a drain pump. Make sure that the connections on the pump motor are on securely.

LG washer with OE error


Hi,

If you are getting this code it is because your washing machine has tried for at least ten minutes to drain the water out of the machine. The most likely cause of this problem is that you have a plugged pump filter or you have something stuck in the pump filter.Make sure that you unplug your washing machine.To clean out the pump filter you must empty the washing machine water. The best way to do this is to manually drain the water into a low bucket or basin. Then lay a towel down to catch to remaining small amount of water. Remove the pump filter, clean out any debris, and wash out the filter. Then plug your washer back in and restart the washing machine.Check that your machine is properly leveled. A washer that is too far out of level may not drain properly. Make sure that you are level front to back as well as side to side.This solution will solve your problem

Thank You !!

My whirpool duet washer is displaying F33 code. It doesnt spin at a high rate of speed to allow for the clothes to spin dry therefor the door latch will not open.


The F33 error indicates a PUMP DRIVE SYSTEM ERROR and occurs when the connection between pump and the Central Control Unit (CCU) is lost.

1. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
2. Check wire harness connections to the pump and Central Control Unit (CCU).
3. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
4. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic Test or any cycle.


System Leak - Select 'cancel' twice to clear error code. Check for any cracks or holes in the washer tub or pressure switch hose. Replace if damaged.

Also

1. Switch off the machine and disconnect the mains power.
2. Remove the filter and make sure that the filter is not blocked and is clean and clear of all debris. Clean as required. Note that depending on the machine type you may get a lot of water coming out of the filter when you remove it if the machine has not drained successfully. Note that if the machine has stopped and not fully drained then you may be able to drain out the excess water by removing or disconnecting the waste hose and laying it on the ground in a tray.
3. Proceed by checking the drain hose for proper connection and kinks and make sure that it is not blocked.
4. Also check that the main waste drain pipe, if you use one, is not blocked and clean if required.
5. Reconnect the power and switch the machine on.
If the problem persists then do the following.
6. Switch off the machine and disconnect the mains power.
7. Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure it is operational.
8. Remove the connecting hoses, and expect water to drain out and make sure the pipes are not blocked with debris or any object blockage.
9. Makes sure the pump appears clear and that the impeller looks in good condition.
10. Reconnect the hoses and then reconnect power and switch the machine on.
11. If problem has not been corrected, then remove the pump and check that the drive coupling to the motor is OK and that the motor turns OK. If all is well then replace the pump.
