It all began with a LE code. Most LG forums advised that I run a Tub Clean cycle. I run the cleaning cycle only to return to a locked-up washer that no longer powers on and is a quarter filled with water. Nothing I do can return or reset the power. My AC power is good and I still get no results. I was running a self cleaning cycle with no load or detergents. I’m baffled to what could have possibly happened internally and I’m open to suggestions. The floor is yours...

    XenoCombs, You can try unplugging the unit for 30 minutes to see if the would release the latch and clear the LE error from the washer. If it does not release, service would be needed for further diagnosis.

    Did this resolve your problem? Let everyone know by selecting "Helpful"!

    I tried it and still no luck. A repair tech came out to look at it and said the circuit board was fried.  New one is about $260. I’m totally regretting going with LG in the first place. Thanks for your time, JamalofLG
