Question about LG WM-1832C Front Load Washer
The washer panel is blinking LE on front panel and washer won't work.
"LE" means overload in motor. When we first got our LD washer we had similar problems. I evenually concluded it was related to adding too much detergent. My suggestion is remove everything and run the machine thru the cycle empty a couple of times with just water. If you cannot get it to run, try draining the water though the drain at the front lower corner. Then using a jug add some hot water in the soap dispenser to flush some of the detergent, and drain that. See if the machine will now run thru a cycle with just water. In our case we were able to get it to run after it sat for a day, perhaps the motor need to cool, I am not sure why. It was tough to get the machine going but once we flushed it and used a LITTLE high efficiency soap with loads we have had no more problems except once when my son did a load with lots of detergent. Then we followed the steps above and were back in business. Hope this help you.

The 'LE' error message indicates the control
board has detected that the motor is either not turning, or has locked up for
some reason. Monitoring the motor is the job of the hall effect sensor board
which constantly determines the direction and speed of the motor and feeds that
information back to the control board. If there is a problem between what the
motor should be doing and what the hall effect sensor says the motor is doing,
the 'LE' will be displayed and the cycle will be stopped.
This error can sometimes present because of a miscommunication between the control panel and the wash motor. In this instance, the washer simply needs to be reset.
Step 1: Unplug the washing machine.
Step 2: While the washer remains unplugged,
press and hold the [Start/Pause] button on the front panel for 5 seconds.
Step 3: Plug the unit back in, and run a rinse and spin cycle to test if the LE code is cleared.

The LE error message means "locked motor error" which means the control is not seeing the motor running.
The problem can be caused by a broken wire or loose connection but the most likely cause of the problem is a bad hall sensor.
The sensor can be accessed by removing the rear panel and the rotor assembly. See the image below for help with this. Remember to unplug the washer first.
Make sure the rotor and drum rotate. Anything blocking the tub rotation might trigger an LE code.
