Hi
Turn OFF the main power supply to the machine .After 7 minutes the door will get unlocked irrespective of level of water in the tub. As long the power is going to the machine the lock will not open.

Try turning power on to washer and only pushing the spin speed button to select a low speed spin, without selecting any cycle. This should display a short (12 -14 minute) time on the display. Push start. The washer should pump out and then spin. If no pump out, open access door at bottom left of front panel and use small hose to drain out water. (as long as the hose is not blocked with sand) Then, remove the big knob next to the hose to clean out filter. If filter was clear, you may need a new pump motor.

Slide a paint scraper or similar between the machine and the latch side and push it quite hard and it should open. Mine does and I found the fix on this site!

Le error code on my LG washer.


On LG Washers the code LE is for motor overload protection.
Ensure that you are not overloading washer, make sure to clean pump by draining at little door at lower left corner(check manual for instructions), unplug for 30 minutes to reset, now try running cycle again. if it fails again something else is causing the motor to work to hard and will require a professional.

LG washing machine keeps stopping and it says 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. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Washer won't run....


It seems as an overload issue. The machine has an overload switch to protect the motor. Take the comforter out and operate the machine,it should work fine. Good luck!
