Question about LG WM-1832C Front Load Washer
A few days ago, my moms washer started saying LE after trying forever to complete the spin cycle. The digital screen will stay on 10min remaining, until LE comes up. It could be still going for an hour, but the display says only 10 min remaining? I've already checked the drain hose/plug & I've tried draining the water & beginning a new load, but it still does the same thing? Oh, by the way, lately, some of the buttons on the panel won't always work. We have to keep trying to press them before it will register... And sometimes it simply wont register at all until we opt to switch to a different cycle option? Even trying to press the start button is a challenge. I know the bearings are bad because I saw them yesterday and it squeaks like a friggen mouse on steroids. (lol) My motto laughing about a dilemma is far better than pulling your hair out over it. :-P I would truly appreciate it if anyone can offer any helpful suggestions as to what we can do without having to spend a fortune to try & repair it.
It is either:
1. Thermistor error. $6 part. Easy repair
2. Motor position sensor issue. $18 part. Easy repair
check out repairclinic.com or appliancepartspros.com for repair videos. Thermistor can be replaced from bottom of washer . Videos show you where it is.

SOURCE: cycle takes forever
IE is Inlet Error. Turn off the water valves behind the washer and remove the hoses from the machine end. Look inside the spot the hoses were attached to, and use a plier to pull out the screen and clean it out. (probably only need to do the cold side) Re-instert screen(s), re-attach hoses, and turn valves back on. (Also, make sure hoses are not kinked behind machine.) Times displayed are estimates, and vary due to water fill rates, and load type and size. In your case, the water fill rate is the problem.

Over-sudsing is the main cause of LE error codes. Using non-HE (high efficiency) detergents or too much detergent will cause stress on the motor. In addition, detergent residue can also cause leaking and odor. Follow these steps to resolved an LE error code caused by over-sudsing.
Step 1: Unplug the washer and allow the unit to sit for 30 minutes to give the suds time to dissolve.
Step 2: Plug the washer back in and press [Power] to turn on the washer.
Step 3: Do not choose a washing cycle. Press the [Spin Speed] key until "No Spin" is selected.
Step 4: Press [Start/Pause] to begin a drain only cycle.
Step 5: After the drain only cycle has completed, remove the clothing items from the machine. Turn the power back on and select [Rinse and Spin] and then press [Start/Pause]. This will remove excess soap suds and light residue from the drum. Repeat this step until no visible suds are in the drum of the washer.
Has a large load size been used with a gentle wash setting?
Gentle wash cycles such as Perm Press, Delicates, Hand Wash, and Wool/Silk should only be used for smaller loads. Because the cycles are more gentle while tumbling and spinning, too many items in the drum can register as an issue with the motor. In this instance reset the unit and run a test rinse and spin cycle.
Has the washer been overloaded?
Single bulky items or large loads can add extra weight to the drum and place stress on the motor. Remove some of the clothing and restart. If the issue is still present after a few items have been removed, unplug the washer for 30 minutes to allow the motor to cool and then restart the cycle.
