LE means that the motor is struggling. If you're getting a metal noise then that would explain why it's struggling to turn the basket properly. Unfortunately that usually means your main bearing and seals have gone bad which ruins the shaft on your inner basket so all the bearings and seals as well as the shaft (which may be part of the inner basket depending on the model number) would all need to be replaced. The cost of repair is usually about $600 or so. $900 would be very expensive, but unfortunately the repair is not cheap. We are on the honor system here.
