We have an LG front-loading washer that we bought used (previous owners had it about a year) about 9 months ago. They no longer had the manual. It has run fine so far; the only time it has stopped running and given "warning" beeps, the solution seemed to be to redistribute the load, and then it finished the cycle. A couple of times, it didn't seem to want to start the cycle, but turning it off, waiting for a bit, and turning it back on always seemed to work.<br><br>
This morning, I put in a very full load. Water came in, and the drum turned over a few times. Two minutes into the cycle, the drum would look like it wanted to turn again, but it couldn't. It's like it's getting stuck -- it would try to turn one way, but just kind of shake a bit instead, then try to turn the other way, but again it would just shake. Then it would start beeping and read "LE" on the little digital panel thingy. I tried waiting and restarting a couple of times, with no luck. I tried taking out half the load, no luck. I took out all of the clothes, and there was water pooled in the bottom of the drum. I started the cycle (I tried a couple of different ones) -- no luck. Water comes in, drum turns over a few times, and then can't any more. It makes a bit of a mechanical whiney sound.<br><br>
I know that's a lot of description, but I thought maybe someone had encountered the same thing? I don't know make/model, except that it's LG, and it also says "TROMM" on the front. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">

I googled your machine name and error code and got a very helpful thread over at <a href="http://ths.gardenweb.com/forums/load/laundry/msg030113079732.html" target="_blank">Gardenweb</a>. You should try unplugging it for >2 hrs and plug it back in again.

Did you get it straightened out? We have this machine..."LE" says it means overload in motor. Restart the cycle after 30 minutes. If LE is not released, call for service. Good luck!

Thanks very much! I have it unplugged, and will try again later.<br><br>
I even thought about just unplugging it and trying again, but I thought that it was the kind of thing that only worked with computers. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
(While I was in the middle of typing the sentence above, my computer froze, and I had to turn it off & back on again <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll">)
