This answer was rated:

My wmo642hw stopped working with a LE code flashing. in wash it goes back and forth 2 times stops jerks 4 times with a pitched sound and stops. On spin it spins at a slow speed jerky after a 2 minutes the electric shuts off the jerky motion and sound stops and the drum sins freely, smoothly to a stop.

Thanks for counting on us to help with your appliance problem. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I look forward to helping you! The LE code means there is an issue with the motor circuit. This is most often caused by a poor connection at the motor connector, specifically the sensor connector. The control does not know what the tub is doing, so it flashes the LE code. I would remove the rear access panel, remove the Allen bolt and the metal rotor assembly in the center of the tub and pull it off. Locate the connection on the motor stator assembly, pictured below. With the machine unplugged, remove the connector carefully and brush both sides with a toothbrush. Plug the unit back in and if the error code remains, the stator assembly will likely need to be replaced and is available below.


Please let me know if you have additional questions or need clarification. There is no additional charge for any follow up help!

Did not help. Any other connections I should check ,board ect?

You can remove and replace the connection at the board, but if the code is still there, the motor assembly will probably need to be replaced. This is a common issue with these machines.
