Found the manual for a similar model. LE error code indicates a "Lid Open" error. Most likely the little switch that is tripped when you open the lid has failed due to corrosion or some other reason. If you can find an equivalent switch then replacing it should do the trick. Otherwise, you can simply short the connection so the machine thinks that the lid is always closed. WARNING: This effectively overrides the open lid detection system and poses the risk of having the unit run a spin cycle even with the lid open! find a replacement switch if you can. good luck! just shorted mine out temporarily and it works -- until i can find the right switch.

In other Daewoo models LE error code means pressure sensor failure.
This sensor is used to know water level in the tube. It is probable
that your model reports the same codes.
It does not necessary means a broken sensor you must check the electrical connectors and cables as well as all the mechanic and pneumatic elements like the hose connected to the sensor.
It is often clogs with soap and other particles.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Whirlpool's 'FE' stands for 'Filter Error'.
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to rinse or spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Following are my complete and generic guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!
