Very unlikely it's the motor but could be the bearing is grinding or one of spyder bracket at back of drum has broken off. If you put it into spin with no load and just grinds then bearing is gone. if the drum wobbles and rattles then bracket is broken.LE code may or may not be related. Sometimes just plugging and unplugging the hall sensor at the back will eliminate the problem or just resetting it the way you did it. but if there's a real problem it will come back again.

LE error on LG 2277HW

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?
Gentle wash cycles such as Perm Press, Delicates, Hand Wash, and Wool/Silk should only be used for smaller loads. Because the cycles are more gentle while tumbling and spinning, too many items in the drum can register as an issue with the motor. In this instance reset the unit and run a test rinse and spin cycle.


Has the washer been overloaded?
Single bulky items or large loads can add extra weight to the drum and place stress on the motor. Remove some of the clothing and restart. If the issue is still present after a few items have been removed, unplug the washer for 30 minutes to allow the motor to cool and then restart the cycle.

Le code appears during normal cycle

LG recommends unplugging the washer for 15 - 20
minutes to reset the microprocessor.

The most common cause for the LE error code is over-sudsing in the machine from using regular detergent instead of a high efficiency detergent. The HE detergents are designed for lower suds levels and enhanced cleaning performance in front-loading washers.

Overloading the wash with too much laundry may also cause the LE error code. LG recommends loading the washer until the clothes in the drum are no more than three-fourths of the way up the window of the door. This will allow them sufficient room for tumbling.
