Unspecified error when disabling/enabling encryption of logical volume

Configure volume group window
Description of problem:
By default the installer proposed some logical volumes for the installation of Fedora 26. By default it also suggests to encrypt those volumes. I disabled the encryption and confirmed the change, then changed my mind and tried to turn it back on. This gives a "device reconfiguration failed" error, asking for details just spawns an empty window with a close button. Anaconda didn't go down entirely and in the end I managed to work around this by disabling encryption just once on one logical volume, so that only the logical volume on my HDD which housed my /home directory was encrypted.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The Anaconda version shipped with Fedora 26.
I'm on a PC with both one SSD and one HDD and chose a clean installation, overwriting any existing OS's (just Fedora 24). I think this might be related to the issue. Open a LVM logical volume in the manual partitioning, disable encryption. Then open it again and enable encryption. Now receive the error message.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install on a PC with one HDD and one SSD, overwrite any existing OS's.
2. In manual partitioning, pick LVM and open a logical volume.
3. Disable encryption and apply the change.
4. Open it again, enable encryption and apply the change.
5. See the error message.
"Device reconfiguration failed" error with unspecified details.
No crash, disabling and enabling shouldn't cause issues.
