Called LG support when I received the LE error on my washer. He had me clean out the drain. Unpluged the machine and then had me press the 'play' button for 10 seconds. After that I was able to use the washing machine - the LE error was cleared

Cool Tech, Best Solution worked perfect for me. Easy fix. I had to wait a week for the part but it was worth it. I saved alot of money. Thank You. LG was not supportive of homeowner fixing.

No, there is no service manual available to the public for this error code.  The error code LE refers to the motor sensor failing. You will need to order a replacement motor sensor from LG.  
To replace the sensor, you will need to remove the back panel to access the motor.  Take a 17 mm socket and remove the center bolt holding the rotor assembly.  Pull the rotor straight out and place it off to the side.  Take a 10 mm socket and remove the 6 bolts holding the stator assembly.  On the inside of the stator assembly, you will find the motor sensor connected to a 5 wire connector.  Remove the connector and replace the sensor.  Reinstall everything back together and the unit should work fine.

LE error on washer. What can I do without a tech?


The *dreaded* "LE" error is overwhelmingly caused or triggered by incorrect type detergent **OR** too much *HE* detergent (a special low sudsing detergent).
In all LG washers-when too much detergent has been used-this will cause the "LE" error to be displayed & the wash cycle will be interrupted. Unplugging the washer for more than one minute will cause the MAIN BOARD (computer) to power down and re-boot when the washer has been plugged back in.
On LG washers built *before* 2008-after several "LE" error events-the error *cannot* be reset by unplugging the washer. This indicates that the HALL EFFECT SENSOR has failed and will need to be replaced.
On all LG washers built during and after 2008-a more robust resistor was used in the HALL EFFECT SENSORS-which eliminated damage caused by higher electrical loads placed upon the sensors due to oversudsing. HALL EFFECT SENSORS virtually never fail in 2008 and newer LG washers but the "LE" error will still occur if too much or the wrong type of detergent is used. This will be "resettable" by unplugging/replugging the washer.
The CORRECT amount of HE (High Efficiency) detergent to be used is as follows:
HE : (2) Tablespoons Per Wash Load
HE 2X : (1) Tablespoon
HE 3X : (1) Teaspoon
USE THESE AMOUNTS RELIGIOUSLY-NO EXCEPTIONS-IN ALL FRONT LOAD WASHERS WITH 3.0 cu ft DRUMS AND LARGER

LG Front load washer LE error code


LE is a locked motor error. Not to worry as 95% of the time it is just a bad hall sensor (the motor position sensor). For your model the part number is 6501KW2002A.

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.

LG Washer LE Error


Solved LE error for my WM1832CW by replacing Hall Sensor. Bought part 5016501KW2002A for $Cdn 26 at Sears parts store. Thanks to TC at http://www.howtomendit.com/answers.php?id=28214 for instructions:
1 Open rear panel. Take 17mm nut off (it's the only one)
2 Pull off what looks like a goofy hubcap (it's held by magnets)
3 Unscrew the six 10mm bolts and gently lower the coils
4 Remove and replace the Hall Sensor (plastic comb looking thing)5 Plug in the sensor and re-install the coils and cover.
30 minutes for me.
Test spin cycle if desired by following chart on page 19 of service manual at http://www.appliancefactoryparts.com/content/pdfs/125448.pdf
(note lower models skip step 10 (heater test).
Hall Sensor Part labelled as K351 in diagram on page 41 of service manual.
