Hi, our washing machine shows bE code and stops working. I got it to work by applying some weight to the lid, but it stops between cycles. Now I've tried to restart it from the start of a new load, but the code comes up straight away and nothing happens but the alarm. I think it may be a sensor problem or a balance issue. The motor and belt spin freely.

The motor that makes the whole thing spin is old which has been used for countless times, making it sluggish/slow. That's what happened to mine, so I had a repair man and have him fix it. Mine just needed some lubricating, and it went back to normal. Can't say if the same would work for you, but nevertheless, have a repairman take a look.
The PE error or fault code indicates that the machine is overfilling with water. This washer is equipped with a water level pressure switch. As the machine fills, the pressure increases on the switch, at the set pressure, the switch cuts power to the water inlet valve and the water stops flowing into the washer. If the pressure switch fails to sense properly, or the water inlet valve fails to shut off the unit can overfill. This situation can also be caused if the machine does not drain properly. First, check to see if water ever enters the machine when it is turned off. If so, replace the water inlet valve. Next, check the drain line to be sure it's not clogged or kinked. Next, check to see if the drain pump is working properly and removing the water from the previous cycle. If all of those check out, you may need to replace the pressure switch.
There is a small magnet at the front of the lid that triggers the door error, mine was corroded and the lg people wanted $80 for a service fee.. Ha I went to my local hobby shop and got a small earth magnet and some super glue $1.50 later and she's fixed.. tadAaa.
