Re: trouble code LE
I believe that your error code is "IE". If so,its relates to water input problem
Check first the filters on the inlet water line (both sides).
Then, if problem still exist - check that the inlet water valve works(it is an electromagnet valve, located at the pipe's entrance to the machine)).
If it doesn't work, test that it get power. In case it get power and doesn't work - You should replace it. Be aware you should disconnect the power cable from machine before doing it !!!!
- If you need clarification, ask it in the comment box above.
- Better answers use proper spelling and grammar.
- Provide details, support with references or personal experience.

An LE error code means problems with the motor. It can either be load issues, excessive suds, thermal overload protection, or a new installation. To solve this motor problem, you must first uncover the underlying cause.
Do you hear the pump running? If so, the problem will be a blockage. Either inside the machine at the water outlet, at the pump or more likely in the outlet hose. Endeavor to ascertain that the outlet hose is completely clear.
If you do not hear the pump operating the problem could be either the pump or the electronics that drive the pump.
When you receive the LE error code, unplug the machine for approximately 15 - 20 minutes. This will reset the microprocessor.
Oversudsing is the main cause of LE error codes. Using non-HE detergents or too much detergent will cause stress on the motor. Oversudsing can also cause leaking and odor.
A breakdown in the signal between the microprocessor and the motor may cause the error code. This can occur if there is a loose wire.
A couple of notes about this - there are at least three motors on this unit - the main pump, the drain pump, and the 'vario motor' which appears to control the direction of water flow through the sprayers. The main pump is the one likely to go bad. Another cause of the LE code is broken wires in the door. The wires in the door get stuck in the black sound insulation and eventually break. Sometimes, this causes the LE error code. Check the wires in the door first. They are located behind the large front panel. It's easily removed by undoing 6 screws.
The LG error code OE simply means “the pump is blocked”. Presumably the
water isn’t being emptied properly. Check the exit hose, it may be
clogged. LE Code refers to a motor overload.Since the pump is blocked,the motor
becomes inefficient in working.Once you get the pump cleared from
blockages,I assure that you can get rid of these errors.Good luck with
the machine.Please do post the results and comments.
Please confirm the model number of this LG diswasher.
On recent LG units, the avaiable error codes are:
The PE code is abnormal. Can you confirm.
I would expect to see the error OE if water is not fully pumped out. Remove the filter from the sump area beneath the bottom rack. Look closely for debris causing a blockage/lock. Please get back to me with your findings and ask more questions as needed.
The LE error code can be an indication of several different issues.
The most common cause is over-sudsing in the machine. Many times owners experiencing the LE error code are using regular detergent. It is recommended to use a high efficiency or low sudsing detergent.
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 the error code. This can occur if there is a loose wire, dislodged ball
sensor, or if the shipping bolts are removed prior to situating the washer.
