    I had the exact same problem, but i managed to fix it (for now) by giving it a different error to play with - unplug the motor and start the machine, then cancell the error and plug the motor back in..
    Thats hopefully got me a few more washes out of a very knackered machine ;)

LE code error

Just try resetting the unit it by disconnecting from power outlet, remove plug for say five mins, and then try and run it again.

Failing this, Check for any obstructions in your drain pipe, if you can move the unit yourself to check at the back of it, but assuming you might not be able to run these checks on your own, best to have a tech come do it for you

Brand new Lg dryer 2501, error code ''nP''

I had the same issue with two new dryers. The rep on the phone said nP can also indicate a power issue. It turned out one of the wires in the outlet had broken off. Rewiring the outlet solved the problem.

Displaying error 20

E20 is a drain problem.
Most likely is is blocked, so a good clean out is needed.
(turn off water and unplug) Pull out the machine, take outlet hose out, and clear drainpipe with a drain cleaner - then rinse through.
Clean outside of pipe, and check inside condition.
Replace & reconnect.
Try 2 cups of washing soda in the machine and do 2 hot washes to try and flush blocks through.
If this does not improve matters, you may have to strip the machine to clear the pump and outlet pipe manually.

Sounds like water pressure could be low or inlet pipe is kinked.

F04: possible filling or water level problem. Check water inlet pipe (or shut-off valve), or the outlet pipe, or the pump or pump filter if accessible (check for blockages or foreign objects). Also could be the water valve solenoid weak, causing filling to be too slow.

F05: possible draining (pumping off) problem, check the pump filter, or pump, outlet pipe, or U-BEND.

Don't forget to rate!

The spin normally does not work when the outlet filter is clogged; if the filter is clean you should then check your pipe coming out from under the tub (plug off the wall first before doing all these things). Last check your outlet pump, could be blocked with something. Refit carefully, you might need a nice pair of pliers to get the grip clip on and off the pipes.
The outlet pipe into the wall stands at a particular height, refit exactly to this height, about 3 feet from ground
