Question about LG WM1812C Front Load Washer
Gives LE error code. Makes funny noise. Of course out of warranty. Only two yrs old. Tried unplugging-doesnt work. Where do I turn down the heat setting for the water?
I have this washer and the LE error code generally comes on when there is hair and lint (and maybe a hairpin or coins) in the lint trap in the little lint trap on left bottom corner. Take a standard screw driver or quarter and pop open the hatch door. Pull the small black drain hose off the hook and drain into a pan or larger bowl after pulling little plug out of hose. Don't pullbefore you have something to drain it in, all the water will go all over your floor. Then there is a white basket that you unscrew and pull out whatever is caught in the trap. I have two girls with VERY long hair and three dogs. Usually this machine will give me the LE error after I have washed dog bed covers about every other time. It doesn't happen often, but it usually is hair balls basically. Otherwise no problems and love the machine.

I feel you could simply have a blocked drain pump. is there water still in the unit when the code LE comes on. if so simply remove obstruction and try running unit again.

The LE error code can be an indication of several different issues. The most common cause is over-sudsing in the machine. Overloading the wash with too much laundry may also cause the LE error code. Lastly, a breakdown in the signal between the microprocessor and the motor may cause that error code. This can occur if there is a loose wire or a dislodged ball sensor. Good luck!
