I have this washer and the LE error code generally comes on when there is hair and lint (and maybe a hairpin or coins) in the lint trap in the little lint trap on left bottom corner. Take a standard screw driver or quarter and pop open the hatch door. Pull the small black drain hose off the hook and drain into a pan or larger bowl after pulling little plug out of hose. Don't pullbefore you have something to drain it in, all the water will go all over your floor. Then there is a white basket that you unscrew and pull out whatever is caught in the trap. I have two girls with VERY long hair and three dogs. Usually this machine will give me the LE error after I have washed dog bed covers about every other time. It doesn't happen often, but it usually is hair balls basically. Otherwise no problems and love the machine.

Re: LE error code
The LE error code can be an indication of several different 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 or a dislodged ball

the LE error code is an over suds error.
the smell could be coming from lint and foreign object matter collected in the rubber bellows that is conected to the drain pump this should be cleaned out i hope this helps
I tried a solution I found elsewhere - worked great. I had turned my drum enough to cause the display to turn on (a glitch in their program, I think), then I got the LE code on the next cycle.
Unplug for 10 minutes. Turn back on and press the Rinse & Spin button, then set Spin Speed to No Spin. Run this cycle, which should work fine. Afterwards, you should be able to run your machine as normal. If this doesn't work, replacing the Hall sensor would be the next step.
If you have a moldy smell, run a no-clothes cycle with some liquid bleach. Should clear that up.
Had same problem last yr. about 2 yrs. old. Just happened again today. When i called LG last yr. they said unplug unit for 1/2 hr plug back in. I did this and has run fine until today I'm trying this process again and it worked.
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..........
Try the above..........
