Question about Washing Machines
The motor is overheating, so it could be the motor itself or the capacitor, a black cylindrical piece under the head of the machine. Replace the capacitor, as that is cheaper, if it still does it, its the motor, which may not be economically feasible to replace.

Maybe. Sounds like the motor is not agitating in the other direction??? There is a controller on this type of machine which handles the starting...direction of the motor..this is by far the most common for your description.
next would be the timer or transmission.
to check trans..grab top lip of bowl it should be locked in both directions. tilt machine back..you should be able to spin the pulley in both directions it not its the trans
I'm sorry bout the flow of this...not used to doing it like this...think i'm slowly getting better????

Sound like the inlet valve coil may be shorted. Remove console and check wires from water valve to control. If wires look ok, the inlet valve has a problem

It's quite possible, however,
If you're mechanically inclined, I'd check the motor, transmission and pump first.
See the following Whirlpool / Kenmore Service manual for top load, direct drive washers and it's trouble-shooting section.
See the following for how to pull the cabinet, pump, motor and transmission to check them all.
YOU DON'T HAVE TO PULL THE TUB.

It would seem to me that the heating element needs replacing from the information you have supplied especially as it performs most of the other functions like filling and spin and drain.

If your washer was working previously please read below.
Thermal Overload Protection
Your washer may display the LE code if the thermal overload protection circuit in the motor has been tripped. The feature is designed to prevent the motor from overheating and causing permanent damage to the washer. To clear the error code, the motor must cool down. Allow the washer to sit for approximately half an hour before restarting the cycle. If the code reappears, the motor may have an issue that requires a service call. Unplug your washer and contact LG.
