LG washer doesn't work

My wahser has an error code that "LE" what does this mean? My machine does not wash.

  • Anonymous Feb 16, 2008

    I was washing a rug and got an LE code on the machine. Solution is to clean the filter on the front left lower corner - make sure to have a couple of small buckets ready to drain the water out. DO NOT TAKE PUMP FILTER OUT until it is completely drained.

My error was when the machine went into spin.
the resolve was to dis-connect the water hoses at the back of the machine. Pull out the screens (Blue = cold, red=hot) inside the hose connector on the back of the washing machine. Clean out the screens (I have a lot of iron in my well water, so this screen does get clogged). Once I cleaned these screens there was a noticable difference to the amount of water entering the soap dispenser when the machine was started. This fixed the problem.

Thermal overload protection circuit in the motor has been tripped. Let the motor cool down for 1/2 an hour then restart the cycle. If the error code is still there you should unplug the machine and have it serviced.

Try looking it up in the user manual or you can try going to the manufacturer's website, look up the model and see if they have a manual or error code guide you can download.

Hope this helps!

Le error code on my LG washer.

On LG Washers the code LE is for motor overload protection.
Ensure that you are not overloading washer, make sure to clean pump by draining at little door at lower left corner(check manual for instructions), unplug for 30 minutes to reset, now try running cycle again. if it fails again something else is causing the motor to work to hard and will require a professional.
