Same problem where it would start. Then it would seem to pump out the old water for a few minutes. Then stop with the LE error. My serial number was 712 and below as mentioned above.
If this happens, take the time to check the manual and remove the door cover. It has about 6 screws and you don't have to remove the unit.
Next, pull the door cover away from the door. You will have to unstick the fiberglass like stuff which will stay with the cover. It is sticking to this black tar stuff used for sound damping. The door cover will come free revealing this massive bunch of wires.
Don't be intimidated with the wirss. Trace the wires and find only the ones "stuck" into that black tar. The tar stuff melts the shielding on the wires and corrodes the wires. I found 2 wires melted and shorted.
I pulled out the wires, stripped and reconnected them and my unit tested fine. I rubber taped them back together and put the door back on for a final fix.
Works fine, and saved me $200.00 at least for a service call.
