LE is an overload on the motor. Has nothing to do with your filters or inlet hoses being blocked. If the tub spins smoothly when you open the door and spin it by hand, it means that the RPS sensor attached to the back of the tub on the motor is bad. You can access the RPS sensor by pulling the entire unit forward and removing the back access panel. Remove the back stater motor, and the RPS sensor is the 3 wire plastic device that is attached to the right side of the motor. you will need to replace that part because it's not sensing the motor correctly.
