I had the same problem. LG addressed the problems as follows:
1. Unplug the unit 2. Press and hold the power button for 10 seconds. 3. Plug the unit back in.
It WORKS!! It's like reseting your computer or alarm clock. You've got to kill the power and press and hold the on button while it's still unplugged.
Hope this works for you.

This solution worked however not fully. The same problem would occur after I turned the machine off or I ran a load and the machine powered down. It did correct itself however after I unplugged, hit power for 10 seconds, plugged back in, hit the power button, then walked away. When I returned, the lamp was off and I was able to turn on/off the washer on command. Hope this works for you as well.

Thanks for the info, I have the same problem with the drum light. I will try that and see if it works. That is a lot more helpful than someone I found that just said "buy a new washer".

How do I fix an error code LE on an LG washing machine


We have experienced the LE light for the past several months on our LG Tromm 2277. We replaced the Hall Sensor and it worked for about 4-5 washings. We unplugged and turned the drum 4-5 times in each direction. Replugged and it would work for 4-5 times. When that stopped working, we ordered the Stator Assembly. Same thing. It would wash 4-5 times and the LE light would return. Finally, the washer tripped the breaker and there was no power anywhere. My husband traced power up to the Main Control Board. He noticed the red light on the board was no longer on. The Main Board costs about $150. It arrived (ordered from Sears Parts Dept) and he replaced it in about 10 min. Take a picture of it before you remove so that you will have a guide to re hook. Three days and six washings later, it is still working. If I can get another 3-5 years out of this washer, I'll be happy. I have mastered the musty smell. I use a cleaning tablet "Affresh" designed for cleaning the drum periodically and keep the gasket as dry as possible after final wash using a towel and leave the door open. I love the low water consumption and low detergent use. If you use more than 2 Tablespoons of detergent, you are using too much. I also use a 1/2 teaspoon. of oxy clean when washing whites and towels. Here are two sites for installation reference:

I have a LG Tromm with an LE error code. I just replaced the hall sensor


With a digital volt meter you need to measure the ohms value of the hall sensor. It has 4 wires. White red blue and gray. With the meter set at 20k ohms check hall sensor at the control panel. From white to blue you should read 9.5 K ohms. Same with white to red. If u get 9.5k ohms on both readings u have a bad main board. However to me I think your pump is bad. LG washers will not spin if they don't drain.

Lg front wont finish wash resets to spin cycle


Sounds like the programme software control logic circuits are playing up. This is a job for a qualified Technician only. The control board may need replacing.
Pay for a service call and just get a quote to fix it.

If it's within your budget, fix it oherwise replace with another machine of your choice of brand and features.
