Question about Washing Machines
This is a *rare* error.
Overcurrent error. Caused by an obstruction in between tubs, too many clothes, too much detergent, wrong detergent.
Clean out soap dispenser, remove lodged items. Lessen clothing in tub make sure tub turns free.
It's highly unlikely the motor is at fault.
UNPLUG THE WASHER...
** Inspect all wiring connections at the MAIN BOARD (see below instructions).
** Inspect the wiring at the motor--remove the rear service access panel.
Remove the 17mm bolt at the center of the rotor--this can be tight as threadlocker is used.
Pull off the round shaped rotor. Use some care--this rotor has magnets lining the inside of it--it's not super fragile but can crack if hit sharply.
Inspect the two plug connections to the motor for loose or frayed wiring.
Also inspect the wiring which runs from the base (bottom) of the washer-to-the-motor.
Once or twice--I have found wiring frayed from the gyrating tub assembly (repair as needed).
If no obstruction such as a nail or similar object can be seen in the drum (small holes in tub)...
if the drum turns freely by hand...
the most likely fault will be the MAIN BOARD has failed.
This job is very simple:
Remove (3) screws at the top of the control panel.
Pull the control panel towards you & upward.
Remove the screws that attach the MAIN BOARD to the Display Board. Install new MAIN BOARD.

That's not OE, that's DE as in Drain Error. Open the access panel on the lower left front of the machine, use the small hose to drain out the remaining water, then unscrew the large plug and clean out the filter attached to the plug. If there is nothing in the filter, you may have a blocked pump impeller (not very likely as the filter stops most objects) or the pump impeller may have come off the pump motor shaft. If the later, replace the pump motor, as just popping the impeller back on will only result in repeat of your problem.

I tried a solution I found elsewhere - worked great. I had turned my drum enough to cause the display to turn on (a glitch in their program, I think), then I got the LE code on the next cycle.
Unplug for 10 minutes. Turn back on and press the Rinse & Spin button, then set Spin Speed to No Spin. Run this cycle, which should work fine. Afterwards, you should be able to run your machine as normal. If this doesn't work, replacing the Hall sensor would be the next step.

LG Tromm Washing machine te error. The manual says to call for service. Not much help there. The reason for the error is the thermistor circuit (resistive element that becomes less resistive as it increases in temperature). The thermistor acts as a heat sensor. In many cases, the error occurs because the wireing harness is too tight at the bottom of the drum and one of the wires in this circuit becomes disconnected with all of the movement of the drum (unbalanced load, normal cylcing etc).
1. Unplug the washing machine from the wall. The thermistor circuit is at line voltage (110 in the U.S.) and it will bite! So do this first before proceeding.
2. Move the washer out so you can get access to the back of it.
3. Remove the stainless panel (the one that is not painted, it is large (aprox. 16x18 inches). It is held in place by 4 phillips screws.
4. Locate the thermistor connection block near the bottom of the machine, at the center of the wash drum. It is the small white connector that has two wires running to it. One wire is dark blue, the other is light blue. Insure that neither wire has pulled out of the connector. If either of them have, repair the connector and provide enough extra wire ( aprox. 2") to provide cable relief.
5. If the cable connector and wires are ok, there are other solutions here that recommend either cleaning or replacing the thermistor.
Good luck to you.
