Question about Washing Machines
Check your water supply hoses. The hoses behind the machine that carry the water. First unplug the machine. You'll need to turn the water off on each hose, then loosen the hoses at the machine end, I always remove them slowly in case shut off valves are defective. Expect some water (not much) but if hose doesn't relax after loosening i clamp the hose with small needle nose locking pliers. The hoses hook right up to the watervalve. There should be screens in ends of valve that can become clogged with lyme and other debris. Clean with a toothbrush or spray bottle to flush clean. Replace hoses hand tight then 1/4 turn more with pliers. Do not overtighten. Don't forget to turn the water back on. See what happens. If you go to www.searspartsdirect.com you can usually get exploded views and manuals for your machine. Just need full model number. Once you get the manual go to troubleshooting section. Usually you will find meaning of codes somewhere in that section. Unfortunately different machines have different codes so i can't tell you specifically the meaning of your 7E; but, since it starts so soon after fill begins it is likely a water supply issue.

SOURCE: Error code LE on LG Wm1815cs
Error OE appears after about 10 minutes into a cycle. "OE" in the manual says filter clogged....we have checked & cleaned all of the lines/filter. Now we hear a light humming instead and the washer isn't doing anything...

Drive Motor Tachometer Error
The control is unable to properly detect motor speed and the machine will shut down. If a failure occurs during high-speed spin the door will be unlocked after 3 minutes.
* Check wire harness connections between the Drive Motor/Tachometer and the Motor Control Unit (MCU), and between the MCU and the Central Control Unit (CCU)
* Check the Drive Motor
* Check the MCU
* Check the Wire Harness
begin troubleshooting right at the motor. Why start there? Because the motor is one of the prime suspects and it's easy to check. Remove the back panel and unwind the belt from the drum pulley. Now turn the motor pulley (sans belt) by hand. If it doesn't turn smoothly and easily, you have a bad motor.
If the motor pulley turns smoothly and easily by hand, next step is to run the motor with the belt still removed from the motor pulley. If the motor seems to run fine that way, put the belt back on and run it again. If the motor won't run under load (with the belt on), then that's another sign that the motor is bad.
Suppose the motor turns easily and freely by hand but won't run either with or without the belt. This is a more subtle condition because we're probably dealing with a bad MCU or flakey wire harness somewhere between the motor and MCU, or between the MCU and the CCU.
One trick that often works at this point is to remove and reinsert all wire connections at the board and motor. This tends to clean the small amount of corrosion that will build up on the connections. After you do this put the machine into a service cycle (see the instructions in the tech sheet found inside the unit or you can ). Part of the service cycle is running the motor at certain set speeds which checks the tach.
If you've removed/reinserted the wire harnesses and still no joy, then usually the problem is the MCU.
