Answer: 
I had the same problem and the repair person replaced the rotor, the gears where smooth and the drum did not turn anymore, there was just a loud noice. He said the piece was not bolted correctly from factory so it cause the rotor to como off the tract and started grinding down the gear. Too expensive repair for a factory error.

Answer: 
The LE Error Code on this washing machine is typically related to a Motor Overload. If unplugging the washing machine does not reset this error, then the unit will likely require service. To make service arrangements, you may either contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000, or you can check our Repair Provider Lookup on our website, at http://www.lg.com/us/support/repair....

Answer: 
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this device. If the drain hose cannot be extracted, and the hose cap has come loose, then the unit may be leaking some water inside the cabinet. It is recommended to have a service technician correct this situation. To make service arrangements, you may either contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000, or you can check our Repair Provider Lookup on our website, at http://www.lg.com/us/support/repair....

How can I clean the small drain that is in the door seal?

It seems the small drain in the door seal is plugged. I've attached a small vacuum device, and pulled a bit of dog hair out, but it still seems plugged. I'm concerned the door gasket will get fouled by having water remaining pooled at the bottom.

Answers

Answer: 
The drain in the gasket is supposed to be designed to simply allow the gathered water to flow down the regular drain line. It is recommended to check the drain tube and the coin trap, located on the outside of the unit, to make sure there are no obstructions. If this does not resolve the matter, then the unit may require service. To make service arrangements, you may either contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000, or you can check our Repair Provider Lookup on our website, at http://www.lg.com/us/support/repair....
