Question about LG WM-2277HW Front Load Washer
I have gone around and around with my LG washing machine. I have the same model and the same LE code. I have replaced the hall sensor twice. each time the problem returned about three weeks later. I have also disassembled the drain pump and housing and cleaned it all out. I'm pretty sure that the hall sensor was never bad- I think that simply unplugging and letting it sit while the parts was being shipped caused something on the main board to reset. I don't if I have some corroded contact somewhere or a stuck latching relay. I have gotten the LE code about four times now. I got it on friday again and fixed it in less than five mintues. I have no idea if this will help or not:
Unplug the unit.
Remove the four screws all the way at the top of the back of the unit.
Slide the top cover rearward about 1 inch and then lift the cover off and set it aside.
Sliding the top cover may require some effort.
Once the top is off, look for the PCB or primray control board. It is encased in an almond colored box on the inside of the back wall.
There is one plug with three wires that plugs into the board through a hole in the front cover of the PCB case. Unplug it and then plug it back in.
Once your fingers are clear, plug it in and see if it works.
Here is an additional tip: if the unit stops again with the LE code you can get the drain pump to empty the machine for you by using the quality control functions as follows.
Turn off machine completely.
Hold "soil level" and "spin speed" buttons at the same time. While holding those two buttions reach over and hit the power button (not start button).
All lights on the front should illuminate and after about five seconds the door will latch closed.
Press the "start" button eleven times. The number displayed will be the water level and the pump will pump the water out for you. BTW: 62 is empty and 27 is full (approx.)
Hope this helps.

LE is an error code for the stator. Rare occasions it is the PCB as well. The stator sensor is only there for the PCB to know what direction the rotor is turning.
