    my kids told me the motor stopped - still water in the basket - will not work properly - I will unplug unit for 20 minutes - I am told it will reset the circuit.
    Then I will start over - and see what happens.

    I have unplugged mine over night, still the same problem. Repairmen came out the other day and said I was using too much soap then ran a hot cycle, it worked. We then used 1 tablespoon detergent as they recommended and the code is back, motor won't turn and tube is full of water

Hello Claudecyr,

You said, your lg washing machine shows LE alarm code

Try this!
Unplug your washer for 10 minutes. If you can't reach the plug, turn the breaker off.
then when you turn it on the system should have reset!
And you will more than likely be fine!
Please let me know!
I think you will be solved.
Please remember to leave a rating! A solved I hope!

    The repair manual says.

    LE means overload in motor.
    Then it reads close the water tap.
    Unplug the pwoer plug, and call service.
    That's what the repair manual says!

    I say to try my reset first!!!
    As I wrote earlier!
    Waiting to hear the results.
