You may have a broken motor sensor and it will need to be replaced. You will need to call a qualified service technician who can work on LG's to help you with that.
Good luck

LE error code persists on Model 796.3151 washer. What should I do?

For me, it was a loose nut that holds the motor on (asked an old-time Sears repairman!). Pull the machine out, then tip it back. There is a ventilated disk the size of a medium frying pan. There may be a nut on the floor or it may be loose, as it was for me. The nut is free running, so once it breaks loose, it spins off readily. My nut on a machine from 2012 took a 15/16" socket and needed to be snugged home with about 2-4 second with the lightest setting on an impact wrench. Should have been a real lock nut/elastic stop nut. Alternately you could put some loctite on the nut before securing it. And boy, was that easy!

I get a message le or ue error and machine stops

Where in the cycle is the machine stopping?
A 1E error would be a fill problem. Either the water supply is inadequate (low pressure coming in due to a problem with your water supply), the water supply taps aren't fully open (make sure to open the valves fully), the inlet hose is bent (straighten the hose) or the inlet filter is clogged (clean the filter).

An UE error happens during the spin cycle. Either the load is too small or the load is uneven. Add some items that can tolerate the spin cycle speed or redistribute the load.

A LE error indicates that the motor has overloaded. Wait 30 minutes and then try to restart the machine. If the error persists, the unit needs service.

The manual for the WM-2277H* is available from LG as a DjVu file here: .

I hope this helps.

Dishwashing cycle starts for about 3 minutes then flashing LE light comes on and the machine stops. Why?

Display Condition LE = Motor Error

Possible Cause For Error Occurrence:

Wiring connection is OK?
The Impeller of Washing Pump is locked.
The rotor of Washing Motor is locked.
The Blade is locked.


Check the wiring connection.
Replace the cause of restriction.
Replace the Washing Motor.
Replace the PCB.

Try the following steps:

Unplug the washing machine if you see an LE error on the two-digit display electronic readout. This error indicates a miscommunication between the control panel and wash motor.

Press and hold the "Start/Pause" button on the front panel for five seconds.

Plug the LG dishwasher back in.

Run a cycle. The LE code will clear.

check the pump filter and if necessary clean it up.
if you stop the programme and hold the start/ pause button for 3-5 sec the programme will cancelled and the drain will work.
if you hear a slow noise from the pump it may be blocked with external objects from your clouthes pocket,

so you need to contact a repairman.

Error code LE

Suggestion: Your wash could be overloaded; put in clothes within machine's capacity. What is written in your manual's max clothes capacity. If your heater is on; switch off machine and wall plug. Reset the machine with the heater on minimum & resume your normal cycle.
