SOURCE: LG washing machine error codes
I have today the same error code on model WD-11155FB. This code means that the speed of the electrical motor can no longer be controlled. The velocity sensor placed just behind the motor is probably damaged but it can be also the electronic board where is connected this sensor, or the wiring between these two items.

im going to try and help in a way everyone will understand without getting technical..LE...ERROR..locked motor error,,your motor works like a big version of a toy race car the one that run on the tracks with the trigger ,,eletromagnet...somewhere between the rotor the outside of motor and the stator the inside of motor..its not sendind or recieving signals...now between the inside of your motor and the main power board,,theres a sensor ,,called the hall sensor..its no more than a line fuse,,replace this first..its a couple of dollars..tryed to explain in the lightest form,,for every one,,not all of you might have this problem..but milt does ,,im onthe job

The 'LE' error message indicates the control board has detected that the motor is either not turning, or has locked up for some reason. Monitoring the motor is the job of the hall effect sensor board which constantly determines the direction and speed of the motor and feeds that information back to the control board. If there is a problem between what the motor should be doing and what the hall effect sensor says the motor is doing, the 'LE' will be displayed and the cycle will be stopped.
1) in my experience, sometimes this proves to be intermitent, and upon unplugging and waiting for 5 minutes does not seem to resurface again...
2)Motor lock can be caused by several things from a loose connector, to a bad motor, or even the hall effect sensor failing or dislodging from it's mount.
this could prove to be very challenging to somebody who does not know what they are working with, i suggest if the problem is not intermitent, call a tech.. hope this helps.

IE = Inlet Error. Check for plugged screens where hoses screw onto machine (especially the cold side). Other possibilies are kinked hoses, valve shut off where hose goes to washer, or a bad inlet water valve (the part the hose screws onto), or even a bad control board or bad wire to water valve.

the AE code means that there is water in the base I found that the steam heater element in mine was leaking so after a quick repair using silicon and a good clean after drying the water out of the base it now works again
PS I used to be a washing machine repair engineer! I wouldn't suggest that you start opening up your washing machine!!!!
