Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

There is not a combination of buttons to push to drain the water. LE means that your RPS or "hall sensor" thinks that your tub is not moving properly. Generally this results in needing the sensor itself replaced. If you wanted to manually drain out your washer, there is a small access panel at the bottom of your front panel. Open the access panel and there is a 3" diameter plastic drain cap you can unscrew and all the water will come out that's in the tub. Make sure you have a wet vac or something to collect all the water if you start to turn the drain cap plug.

if you already replaced your RPS sensor and you still have the LE error coming up, open the door and spin the tub to make sure it spins smoothly. If so, then unfortunately the motor itself will need to be replaced.
