I had the same problem. I thought it was the motor it turned out I had a nickle wedged in the filter (bottom left behind panel) the nickle blocked the water pump makeing the pump overload.

WHAT THAT SUGGESTS IS AN OVERLOADED WASHER TUB OR DRUM BEARINGS OR MOTOR BEARINGS. DEPENDS HOW FAR YOU WANT TO GO INTO YOUR PROBLEM. IF YOU HAVE THE MECHANICAL KNOWLEDGE AND AREN'T AFRAID OF GETTING DIRTY - PLEASE GO FOR IT!

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.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa
LE error in your LG front load washer is displayed when either the motor is not working or the control board thinks that the motor is locked up. A Hall Effect sensor is used in these washers which monitors the speed and direction of the motor and then forwards this information to the control board. Hope you understand by now that this LE error is displayed when there is an issue with the motor or when the Hall Effect sensor sends wrong signal to the control. Conclusion is you'll have to check both motor and hall sensor and replace the part# that is bad, usually I have seen the sensor going bad. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.
