Question about LG TROMM WM2688H 4.0 cu.ft. Front Loading SteamWasher
The "IE" code indicates a water inlet problem. If the correct water
level is not reached in eight minutes, this code is generated. Check
the water inlet valve. Unplug the machine, turn off the water, and
remove the water supply hoses. Check the small metal screens inside the
openings on the water inlet valve. Make sure they are clear of rust or
debris. Check the solenoids using a multimeter or ohmmeter.Check for
continuity. A lack of continuity means a bad solenoid and the water
inlet valve assy will have to be replaced. I'll attach a photo for
reference. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

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.
