Yes, when "Le", "la", or "Les" is before a noun (Object, Place, Thing, etc.), it is an Article. However, when it is before a verb you can not contract and it is a pronoun or object of the verb. examples: Je les deteste. Je l'aime. Je le ferai.
It depends on what "le" is. Before a noun, "le" is an article, you can contract to "du". Before a verb, "le" is a pronoun, you can't contrat : it's "de le". Example : Je voulais remplir la gamelle du chien, mais j'ai oublié de le faire. Translated literally: I wanted to fill the (article) dog's dish, but I forgot to do it (pronoun).
