i have already replaced the hall sensor cleaned th waterfal spout and drains around the door and cleared the code washer still wont spin either direction and is giving le code still. i did notice while the machine is unplugged that if i spin the drum fast enough by hand it powers up the control panel i didnt know if this kind of feedback was normal from the stator. i do have an ohm meter and am quite confident in my skills

Thank you for submitting your question. I understand your concern and I will be happy to assist you. The LE code indicates a problem with the motor. This code can be caused by a failed drive motor or a number of other problems. Here are some basic troubleshooting steps that you may consider taking before scheduling service: Try to reset that control board by unplugging the washer for 5-10 minutes and then plugging it back in. There are times when a power surge or glitch through the electrical lines will cause the electronic control board in the washer to malfunction or lock up. Unplugging the washer to completely disconnect electrical power will reboot that control board and will occasionally clear a code if you do not have a component or wiring failure. That basic troubleshooting step should not be overlooked. With the washer off and empty, open the door and spin the basket inside the drum and see if you detect any restriction or resistance. It should spin relatively freely. If not, you could have an item caught in between the spin basket and the outer tub that is preventing the motor from running. The wiring diagram (image one) shows the harness connections between the main control board in the top of the washer and the drive motor in the bottom of the washer cabinet. If you are comfortable with opening the washer cabinet, then you may want to unplug the washer and check those wiring connections. The last two images will assist you with accessing the main control board and the motor connections. Pull that back panel off of the washer to access that motor. I hope this helps. Please reply back to this thread if you require further assistance. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

ok so i finally have been able to test my washer all the wires ohm solid 0 so no breaks or shorts. my next question is what is the voltage that should be going to the motor when its supposed to be turning and how many of the three wires should have power at once im trying to now determine if the control module is bad or the stator assembly is bad
