Question about LG 24 in. LDS 5811ST Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher
I have an LG dishwasher that keeps giving an 1E error code. The code means water inlet trouble and recommends the following.
I had a LG certified repairman come out and fix. The electrical wires within the door were melted into the "tar" (sound deafening spray) and one wire actualy sheered. Apparently the drying cycle heats the tar and the wires become embeded and melt into the tar. This is what was causing the error code. After the wire was tested and spliced everything worked great. Long term...The door/electrical harness was replaced by LG.

Different model same problem.......took front panel off, all you need is a philips head screwdriver for that part. There were 3 wires damaged and one cut completely in two. Spliced wires back together, applied some shrink tubing and electrical tape to seal it up good. Everything is working fine for now. Took 20 mins and $3 in materials. Dont call a service man, you CAN fix this yourself. Don't forget to unplug it first ;)

When you get an E1 error, the most common problem is the drain hose is not installed with a 30" rise in the hose between the DW and the drain. Best repair is installing an AirGap valve (almost free at any hardware store.) For a quick fix, tie the hose up to the bottom of the counter top.
The problem is a siphon effect is is draining water from the dishwasher as soon as the wash or rinse cycle begins.

My Error Code 1E problem was that I had a little blockage in my water line. I took the line loose and cleaned it out & it worked fine. A blockage can produce this code too.

Took front panel off and inspected wires found 1 wire broke in two and one wire damaged I believe it melted into the tar that was used for sound deadening I spliced the wires and applied heat shield material on wires put back together and works great

Water fill solenoid is most likely stuck. If cycle timer elapses 2 minutes and then error 1E flashes and alarm tone sounds, power off, power on, select cycle and wait 2 minutes again. If error repeats, power off/on and cycle selct again. You should hear water start to flow if solenoid finally opens.
If this fails, remove base plate cover, tap solenoid with screwdriver handle during first 2 minutes of cycle. Hopefully this will work for you. This does not fix it, but will identify solenoid as the issue.

code IE on LG dishwasher means Inlet error. This error comes up when the Water
Supply Tap is closed or Water Supply is shut off. If water supply is turned on
then make sure that the Inlet Hose is not kinked and water Pressure is not low
(should be above 10 psi). Next thing to check for is Water Inlet Valve, measure
the electric resistance of Inlet Valve. (950-1300 ohms) Make sure the filter of
Inlet Valve is not clogged.
Hope this helps... Please post back
for further assistance.
