Tip & How-To about LG WM-2277HW Front Load Washer
LE error code is very common and most likely is from a bad motor position sensor also known as a "hall" sensor. Easy replacement and inexpensive part, around $20. Best video is from appliancepartspros.com. Part is available from them and online like ebay. Just try to make sure it is an actual LG oem part, not an oem equivalent part. About a 30 minute time frame if it's your first time. Really not very hard. You just need a Philips screw driver and 10mm and 17mm socket and socket wrench.

LE error in your LG front load washer is displayed when either the motor is not working or the control board thinks that the motor is locked up. A Hall effect sensor is used in these washer which monitors the speed and direction of the motor and then forwards this information to the control board. Hope you understand by now that this LE error is displayed when their is an issue with the motor or when the hall effect sensor sends wrong signal to the control. Conclusion is you'll have to check both motor and hall sesor and replace the part# that is bad, usually I have seen the sensor going bad. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.
