LG Washer Code 'LE'
I purchased my LG washing machine, model WM2032HW, back in October. I got an amazing deal on it and the dryer combo, as they were refurbished units. Supposedly factory refurbished, but one can never know with such things. I have always had good luck with refurbished units in the past, and so far these machines have been excellent. The washer gets stains out that have been in there for years and that other machines couldn't get. I normally do several loads back to back.
On Thursday, I had one of these situations. I had just finished one load of whites that I'd put in the dryer, and was washing some pants. The machine put water in as usual at the beginning of the cycle, but the motor didn't come on. After about a minute or two it beeped very quickly and repeatedly and the error code "LE" came on the display. I tried restarting the cycle several times to no avail. Looking up in the owner's manual, that code means "Overload in motor" and the suggestion is to call a service department. I didn't hear the motor even trying to work, which seemed odd to me. My general thought was "I don't have time for this," so I vowed to ignore it and pay attention again when I returned from my weekend trip.
Well, now I've returned from my weekend trip. I figured I'd look into it a little more. First step: try again to make sure it doesn't work. It appears to be working just fine now, washing that same pair of pants, and is currently in the middle of the cycle.
The problem appears to have cured itself, but my concern is is this just a fluke of some sort that I can now ignore, or should I actually be concerned here? I've read varying reviews on the LG Washer/Dryer combos, mostly bad, but to be honest up until now these have been the best washing machine and dryer I've ever owned.
