Hi,Welcome to Just Answer, My name is XXXXX XXXXX forward to helping you today.

the LE is an error for . LE--Locked motor error, does the drum turn by hand easily ? do you have the full model # ? what is your zip code?

Hi, the model number WM2277HS.


Yes I can turn the drum.


Zip code 33928

okay if you can turn the drum freely you have a bad hall sensor.( Rotor Position Sensor)

you can repair this yourself if you wish, the part is $18.00 at the following link. its a fairly easy repair. at the link I gave you theres a video on how to replace it, do you think you would like to do this yourself ? if not I will look up a servicer in your area. let me know, thanks Bryan
