SOURCE: Front Loading Washer won't drain
The problem is most likely change in the drain pump and sump area (rubber boot going from tub to pump). It is axcessed by removing the lower front panel. Disconnecting and reconnecting the hoses to the pump are real tricky!!!!!!!!!

SOURCE: Front Loading Washer LOUD NOISE
IF IT ROARS LIKE A JET PLANE TAKING OFF, THE SPIN BEARING IS FAILING. PROBABLY, THE REAR SEAL HAS FAILED ALLOWING WATER TO GET INTO THE BEARING.
THE BEARING HAS LOST ITS LUBRICATION SO IT IS GETTING DRY. IT WILL CONTINUE TO GET LOUDER AND LOUDER THE LONGER REPAIRS ARE PUT OFF.
THE ENTIRE BACK HALF OF THE OUTER TUB WILL HAVE TO BE REPLACED. THE BEARING IS PART OF THAT ASSEMBLY. CAN BE A COSTLY REPAIR.

I fixed this myself and it only took about 5 minutes. The problem is the door latch needs to be reset, which requires unplugging it's three electrical connections. This has to be done inside the washer outer seal, but it is easy to get to. First remove the outer ring that holds the seal on. Next remove only the side of the seal closest to the door latch (again only the outer seal needs to be undone). With this done remove the two screws holding the door latch in place (inside). Remove the latch, unplug the three connectors, plug them back in then reassemble everything. When all is back in place hit "cancel" and it should be good to go.

Thanks for using FixYa. You’ll need to clean the filter which is located on the front bottom of the washing machine right below the washer window. It is held up by three screws. Take out the screws and clean the lint. You’ll find in the lint some small clothing, coins and other small things.
Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

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.

Tips for a great answer:
Hello Mary Fortner - It means that the washer has been paused; the cycle has been interrupted. Either the "Pause/Cancel" button or "Start/Pause" button has been pressed. To resume wash - press "Pause/Cancel" or "Start/Pause" once. If this does not prove to be successful please turn the breaker to the unit off for 5 minutes. Then turn the breaker back on to the unit, and retry the cycle setting again.
