Hi,
this a new installation?
In new installations, this error can sometimes present because of a miscommunication between the control panel and the wash motor. In this instance, the washer simply needs to be reset.
Step 1: Unplug the washing machine.
Step 2: While the washer remains unplugged, press and hold the [Start/Pause] button on the front panel for 5 seconds.
Step 3: Plug the unit back in, and run a rinse and spin cycle to test if the LE code is cleared.

Are there soap suds visible in the drum?
Over-sudsing is the main cause of LE error codes. Using non-HE (high efficiency) detergents or too much detergent will cause stress on the motor. In addition, detergent residue can also cause leaking and odor. Follow these steps to resolved an LE error code caused by over-sudsing.
Step 1: Unplug the washer and allow the unit to sit for 30 minutes to give the suds time to dissolve.
Step 2: Plug the washer back in and press [Power] to turn on the washer.
Step 3: Do not choose a washing cycle. Press the [Spin Speed] key until "No Spin" is selected.
Step 4: Press [Start/Pause] to begin a drain only cycle.
Step 5: After the drain only cycle has completed, remove the clothing items from the machine. Turn the power back on and select [Rinse and Spin] and then press [Start/Pause]. This will remove excess soap suds and light residue from the drum. Repeat this step until no visible suds are in the drum of the washer.


Has a large load size been used with a gentle wash setting

Has the washer been overloaded?


Thank You

How to fix lg dishwasher that has code le


I think you may be getting IE code which relates to water inlet problems. Either the water pressure is low or the inlet valve may not be working properly.
Refer page 21 in the user manual which can be dowloaded from this site

But if it is LE code then see this page for suggested fix.

LG WASHER LE CODE


Fix for Error Code "LE" on LG Front Load Washing Machine
I just had an interesting experience with our LG washing machine today. I found some hints for the solution online buried in some user forums, but I thought posting my particular solution here in a less cluttered blog might make it easier to find.
I had just run a load of laundry, emptied the machine, and reloaded. I put the detergent in and started the machine. After sitting for about 2 minutes with no activity, a "LE" error message appeared.
While the online forums indicated this might be a problem with a sensor, I was able to solve the problem by doing the following:
1. Press the Power button
2. Manually rotate the hopper 4 times clockwise and 4 times counter-clockwise.
3. Press the power button and run the machine normally.
Don't know if this will work for everyone, but it worked for me. If I keep getting the error message, I'll have to call LG and find out about this sensor I was reading about.

LE Code


Sorry I missed the LE code in the book.. Too much fun lastnight I guess.. AT any rate.. The Le fault code is a Motor overload warning.  Unplug it for 2 hours and try the machine again with a test wash.  if it persists you need to get a technician out for it.  Hope this helps :)

LG front washer keeps getting "LE" error. I cleaned out the filter on bottom front left side, but the machine still doesn't spin when it's on. It hand spins when I have the door open, otherwise that's it....


Regarding the LE EEROR CODE.... This code is also caused by having a residue on the sensors in your unit. You have to use a HE liqud detergent.If you use fabric softner use half of the recommended amount and dilute if it is concentrated. Once a month (for a family of four) put 3 cups of white distilled vineager directly into the drum and select sanitary cycle or the hottest cycle you can. This prevents residue from forming in your unit and causing the LE ERROR CODE.

The spinning may be a burnt out motor, you may have to get a repairman on that, I can't be sure on that but I hope this helps solve your problem

LE Code on control panel


Press "end of cycle". Plug off the wall. Code can be an indication of several issues. The most common cause is over-sudsing in the machine. Overloading the wash with too much laundry may also cause the LE error code. Lastly, a breakdown in the signal between the microprocessor and the motor may cause that error code. This can occur if there is a loose wire, see that all wires are tightened..........
