When you receive the LE error code, unplug the machine for approximately 15 - 20 minutes. This will reset the microprocessor. The LE error code can be an indication of several different issues. The most common cause is over-sudsing in the machine. Many times owners experiencing the LE error code are using regular detergent. It is recommended to use a high efficiency or low sudsing detergent. Many of the leading detergent manufacturers have a high-efficiency (HE) selection. The HE detergents are designed for lower suds levels and enhanced cleaning performance in front-loading washers. Overloading the wash with too much laundry may also cause the LE error code. A good rule is to load the washer until the clothes in the drum are no more than three-fourths of the way up the window of the door. This will allow them sufficient room for tumbling. The clothing having sufficient room to tumble is more important than either the weight or the number of items in the washer. It is the tumbling action that provides the washing effect. Lastly, a breakdown in the signal between the microprocessor and the motor may cause the error code. This can occur if there is a loose wire, dislodged ball sensor, or if the shipping bolts are removed prior to situating the washer. . In this case, a servicer would need to take a look at the unit.

What information are you looking for?
how to get the water to drain, how to maybe rinse and try with different soap... it won't do anything right now except add more water to the machine
Unfortunately I am having no more luck than you did finding any additional information about your product. As I am not as familiar with LG appliances as I am with other brands I will opt out and allow another expert with more knowledge of your product take over. Sorry for any inconvenience.
Hi, my name is Peter. I am eager to help you solve your appliance problems.
To get the water to drain power up the washer then push the spin speed button, it will default to 14 minutes, push the start button and it will begin to drain the water.
Are you using "HE" detergent?
