LE Error Code - Front Load Washer

Troubleshooting Washer Dryer Combos, Washers Last Updated 04/06/2016

An LE error code on the washer's display indicates that the motor is locked, possibly due to a heavy wash load.

Large and heavy sized loads will put a strain on the motor, causing the LE code to occur. Performing a reset on the washer will normally resolve this error.

To reset the washing machine:

  1. Press POWER to turn the washer off
  2. Unplug the washer from the power outlet. If the outlet cannot be reached, turn the circuit breaker to the unit off.
  3. With the power disabled to the washer, press and hold the START/PAUSE button for 5 seconds.
  4. Plug the washer back in, or turn the circuit breaker back on.

The washer should now be reset and the LE code cleared. If washing a heavy or large load, reduce the load size and attempt to restart the cycle.

Note: For your safety and to preserve your warranty, if the issue persists, LG recommends that all repairs are performed by an Authorized Service Center.
