Question about LG Washing Machines
Got LE error code. Put washer in diagnostic mode and when in spin tests it spun. Got no error codes. Put washer into Rinse & Spin mode with no cloths loaded. Again go the LE error code. Problem started today while the wife was washing.
Hi LakerFan, an LE code is generally a motor overload situation. A large comforter or a lot of bath towels will make the motor work too hard and start to overheat. Unplug the machine,hold the start button for 5 seconds and that should reset the error code. Hope that helps.

Testimonial: "Had already tried that since I had seen that mentioned elsewhere without success. As as I mentioned in my post the washer does spin when I put the washer in self test mode. But if I run it in rinse & spin without any cloths. It will fill with water and may go back and forth a few times but eventually just stops. I can here what sounds like it attempting to spin again. After a minute or two, it will display LE again."

THANK YOU. for those of you with a screw driver, here are the photos on how to.
It takes a philips screw driver and 20 minutes. The white screws may not align perfectly but don't worry, just get them to go back in the hole(no harm done).
I'm going to admit it was my wife that found this fix, so now I give the step by step photos.
Small white screws (3 in total)
cover "falls" off
Unscrew the lint trap (turn to the left)return when clean to hand tight

clogged filter will cause this error code. I have the same washer and the filter located inside the rubber boot attached to the pump was full of junk. there was enough room for water to get thru but not enough for full volume. clean it out and it should work. note : its a pain to get the boot back on so be ready and take it slow. this worked for me.
