SOURCE: LE sighn on NEC washing machine
Generally LE is as you said a load error. This can refer to an unbalanced load in the machine. You should try to redistribute the clothes to even the loadThe addition of a P.I error code indicates it is having problems loading the programmed wash instructions.
The fuzzy logic is a form of artificial intelligence that controls the preprogammed operations of the machine and warns of wring usage.
If redistribution of the load does not work unplug the machine from power and leave for a few hours. Then replug and turn on.load with a few items only and set the unit to wash ...

Testimonial: "Thanks!I've already tried &didn't work. As soon as water fills up, instead of start washing, it makes the high pitch sound and "LE" somes up.Oh No...!"

I had the same problem, When calling a repair shop I told the mechanic it was coming up LE on the display. He told me it was a lid error. Which made perfectly clear sence. I checked the lip of the lid and there it was, a piece broken off where it hits the saftey switch. (my switch was on the left). So check the strike plate on your lid. You may have to screw a piece of alaminium angle to replace it. Or replace the lid.

This is usually a communication error, unplug the machine for 20 minutes and then see if it returns when power is restored.
but if this does not helps then the actual reason of LE error code is as follows:--
LE LOCKED MOTOR ERROR
• The connector (3-pin, male, white) in the MOTOR HARNESS is not connected to the connector (3-pin, female, white) of STATOR ASSEMBLY.
• 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.
• The MOTOR HARNESS between the STATOR ASSEMBLY and MAIN PWB ASSEMBLY is cut (open circuited).
• The hall sensor is out of order/defective.
The hall sensor seems to be part of the motor.
The 'LE' error message indicates the control board has detected that the motor is either not turning, or has locked up for some reason. Monitoring the motor is the job of the hall effect sensor board which constantly determines the direction and speed of the motor and feeds that information back to the control board. If there is a problem between what the motor should be doing and what the hall effect sensor says the motor is doing, the 'LE' will be displayed and the cycle will be stopped.
Motor lock can be caused by several things from a loose connector, to a bad motor, or even the hall effect sensor failing or dislodging from it's mount. Any one or more of these components could have caused this error.

LE indicates a fault with the motor on the appliance.
LG suggest you switch off, wait for a minute, unplug the appliance.
Wait 15 minutes then plug it back in again.
Try the machine again.
If it's still faulty, you can try changing the Hall Sensor in the motor, this can sometimes cure the problem.
Unplug the machine and remove the rear cover. There are 4 Philips head screws. Take them out and remove the rear cover.
You should now see the rear of the motor, which is mounted to the back of the drum.
In the middle is a large bolt which holds the stator cover.
You'll need a 17mm socket and a ratchet to remove this bolt.
Remove the stator cover and place aside.
Toward the bottom-left, you will see a couple of wire bunches held to the motor by three screws. One holds a metal bracket, one actually holds a ground wire, and the last is through a plastic bracket toward the bottom. Remove these three screws and don't lose them.
Through the motor there are 6 bolts holding it onto the back of the drum assembly.
You'll need a 10mm socket and ratchet to remove them.
You will now have the motor off the back of the drum.
Disconnect the two wire harnesses from the motor.
Looking at the surface of this motor that was facing the DRUM (not the outside), you'll see two small pieces clipped onto it, toward the bottom.
The sensor you are looking to replace is the one that looks like a kitchen magnet.
It is attached by small clips. You'll see how it goes on. It's easy to remove.
Go to google and search for part number 6501KW2002A.
This will bring up an LG sensor assembly.
Double check with the supplier that this is the sensor for your appliance.
When you receive the sensor, simply reverse steps 1 through 5.
Once re assembled, try the machine again.
If still the same after this you'll need to replace the motor and/or control board.
