LE stands for locked motor error. The first thing you should try is simply unplugging the machine for 10 minutes. If the problem continues the next most likely cause is the hall sensor. To get to the hall sensor remove the back cover, then remove the wheel that is attched to the drum. Undre that wheel if the stator (motor). At the bottom there is a sensor that spans about three of the windings. This is the hall sensor. It is not very expensive. If neither of those work you will need to replace the Stator (motor)

Hi, open the door and check for any holes in the main boot/bellow's. If so you can either try a rubber "patch kit" or relpace the bellows. It is identified at repairclinic on-line as part # 1377586 and retails for approx. $55. Also check the bellows going from the bottom of the tub to the drain pump. It can also be the source of the leak. You should be able to examine it with the aid of a flashlight or trouble light from the opening at the bottom of you washer. If so repace it with part #1266823 also available at said vendor for around $15. Hope that helps. If so please leave a rating of how helpful this info was here at fixya. Thanks for coming to fixya and good luck. Macmarkus :)

One or both of the water inlet solenoids is/are leaking. They are just inside the cabinet where the outside water lines connect. If you have a lot of sand coming in with your water, you might install a whole house filter to trap it. If sand is getting into the solenoid valve seats, that can cause the leaking condition. Hope this helps!
