Thanks for using FixYa. Le is a locked motor error. The issue could be because the connector (3-pin, male, white) in the motor harness is not connected to the connector (3-pin, female, white) of stator assembly. Also it could be because the electric contact between the connectors (3-pin, male, white) in the motor harness and 4-pin, female, white connector in the main pwb assembly is bad or unstable. Also check if the motor harness between the stator assembly and main pwb assembly is cut (open circuited). If still the issue is not resolved then it is because the hall sensor is out of order/defective. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

What corrective action for an le code?

The le error code means the leakage sensor located in the middle of the base has detected water. Check asap to see if there is water leakage underneath the unit. The sensor must be dry in order for the error to be cleared. Usually, when these sensors are active, they will tell the main board which will not allow anything to run until the code is clear--for obvious reasons.

When i started my machine after play for washing its showing LE on display

You didn't state the make or model of your machine, but I'm guessing that it's an LG machine (It's the only one that I can think of at the moment that produces an "LE" error.

LE Means LOCK ERROR - the trouble shooting information says this means taht the lead wire assembly is not connected. What this actually means is that the little switch that is sat behind the door catch that locks the door shut once the cycle starts isn't working. Most likely because a wire has fallen off the back of the switch, or the switch has failed open circuit.

If you take the lid off the machine and tip it back so you can get a clear look at the casing of the machine from the inside, you should be able to see the switch immediately behind the door catch that you can see from the outside. If you're lucky, you will see a connector, hanging in the air where it has come off a spade connector on the switch. If you're unlucky, the switch may need replacing, if you're really unlucky, the wiring may be faulty somewhere.

Water still in machine says LE on display

LE error code means Locked Motor Error.

Sometimes this can be cleared by unplugging then plugging back in the machine. If this does not clear it you have a faulty component.

This usually failure of a component called the Hall Effect Sensor which may need to be replaced.

Error code LE and OE

The LG error code OE simply means “the pump is blocked”. Presumably the water isn’t being emptied properly. Check the exit hose, it may be clogged.
LE Code refers to a motor overload.Since the pump is blocked,the motor becomes inefficient in working.Once you get the pump cleared from blockages,I assure that you can get rid of these errors.Good luck with the machine.Please do post the results and comments.

Lg wd-3243rhd front load washer and dryer combo "le" error message

LE error code means the motor sensor has failed.  The motor sensor is located in the back of unit inside the motor.  You will need to order a replacement motor sensor from LG.  You will need a 17 mm and 10 mm socket tools to do this job.
