Question about LG WM-0532HW Front Load Washer
Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
LE normally means Lock Error but that should not affect drainage. Try the following for the drainage problem. If LE continues to be shown it will require a service call ;-0(
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!
Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

Hello rdketo - Typically error code E70 indicates that the water temperatures are wrong. Often this is caused due to the hoses are wrongly connected to the valves. Check the hoses and make sure they are located on the correct faucet and valve. Confirm that there aren't any restrictions or kinks in the drain hose as well. If issue persists, it will be advisable to contact an experienced appliance repair tech to assist further.
