That manual says "visit to service" There is no mention of the rpm sensor in the manual. I think perhaps its time to call a service repairman?
Appliance Technician: Mike, Home Appliance Technician replied 8 years ago
The hall sensor is very difficult to repair...plus if you are guessing that is the problem without any accurate diagnosis without factory test equipment then it can get expensive. I normally advise my customers to call for service on this one. I am assuming you got an LE error...this can be one of several problems....Mike
