I have exactly the same problem. The motor is covered by a 3 year warranty. You'll have to pay for labour. I will not buy any LG product in the future. Its junk.
Technician said the motor requires replacing. I believe its a computer module error. Some people were advised to unplug the machine for 2 hours and allow the computer to reboot! This does not sound like a mechanical issue. Whatever it is the machine is poorly developed and completely overpriced. Customer service is non-existent. Website is cumbersome and unhelpful. looks like a money grab to me by Lucky Goldstar (yes, LG is the new name for Goldstar, a low end appliance manufacturer of the past)
Disatisfied Customer (5 weeks out of warranty)

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 washers 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 there
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 sensor 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.
Hi Thanks for using FixYa. FE is Overflow error which
means that the water is overflowing and the water level frequency is over 213. When
FE error is displayed the drain pump operates to drain the water automatically.
To resolve this issue you’ll have to check the water inlet valve and pressure
sensor which can sense the water level in the tub, if any of this goes bad
overflow occurs. Please do rate the solution if the issue is
resolved or post a comment for further assistance. Thanks Rylee
I have a 2277 and had the same problem. A tech came out and couldn't find anything wrong. He suggested that I cut down on the soap (HE) and use only about 1 tablespoon. Also said that you shouldn't see any suds. Supposedly, too many suds does something to the sensor. So far, it's working. Please note that I was not overfilling the soap dispenser in the first place. Hope this helps.
Followup: (of techwannabe) After researching a bit further it was worth the investment to replace the sensor assembly and see if this would fix the issue. Viola! runs like a champ. The part was located locally for a mere $ 25.00 and with a few tools, strength of a gorilla to move the machine I repaired it. Yes a mother of four can complete the job! The unit works beautifully.........................
