LG Dishwasher LDF Pump Motor

I see your post about your dishwasher repair. You replaced the pump motor. Is your dishwasher now problem free and working as it should? How difficult is it to replace the pump motor? Are there directions somewhere?

Take the main wash arm off and the sump cover below it. Remove the part you'll find under that to gain access to the cutter blade attached to the end of the motor shaft. Remove blade but note that this is a LEFT HAND SCREW. Now lay dishwasher on it's side and remove screws and electrical plug to motor. Reverse procedure to install new motor. It's not really very difficult.

WHY DISHWASHER MAKES A WHINNING NOISE


If the dishwasher is making a loud whining noise, the drain pump or motor bearings are defective, the drain impeller or wash impeller might have worn out. All these components are part of the pump and motor assembly. It may be possible to replace one of the impellers, but the motor bearings cannot be repaired. In that case the pump and motor assembly will need to be replaced.

Where are the filters on an lg dishwasher?


Your dishwasher may have a filter located near the bottom or under the lower spray arm. This filter should be inspected and cleaned regularly. Follow your dishwasher owner's manual for specific instructions about how to properly remove and clean this filter, if equipped. If there are any holes or other damage to the filter, you'll need to replace it immediately to protect the dishwasher's pump and motor seals from damage.

My lgis making a horrible noise and is now shoeing an e1 code dishwasher


The LG does suffer from "poor quality" motor that causes this type of noise. The main motor and pump assembly is common to give this type of problem. The pump seal leaks a small amount of water that gets onto the front bearing and causes a "grinding = humming" noise. This can be easly replaced once you have the bottom off and dishwasher on its door. The motoe has 1 screw in the back holding the motor to the bottom and two rubber seals for the water pump in/out into the washer. Just pull and move motor and pump assmbly and it comes free. Replace with a new motor and pump assembly...

Dishwashing cycle starts for about 3 minutes then flashing LE light comes on and the machine stops. Why?


Display Condition LE = Motor Error

Possible Cause For Error Occurrence:

Wiring connection is OK?
The Impeller of Washing Pump is locked.
The rotor of Washing Motor is locked.
The Blade is locked.


Remedy:

Check the wiring connection.
Replace the cause of restriction.
Replace the Washing Motor.
Replace the PCB.

Try the following steps:

Unplug the washing machine if you see an LE error on the two-digit display electronic readout. This error indicates a miscommunication between the control panel and wash motor.

Press and hold the "Start/Pause" button on the front panel for five seconds.

Plug the LG dishwasher back in.

Run a cycle. The LE code will clear.

Error code LE and OE


The LG error code OE simply means “the pump is blocked”. Presumably the water isn’t being emptied properly. Check the exit hose, it may be clogged.
LE Code refers to a motor overload.Since the pump is blocked,the motor becomes inefficient in working.Once you get the pump cleared from blockages,I assure that you can get rid of these errors.Good luck with the machine.Please do post the results and comments.

Measure the electric resistance of the Drain Motor. (Value should be 20-40 Ohms) If it is out of spec, replace it.

LG DISHWASHER WORKS BUT VERY NOISY MODLE:LD-2040WH


The main water pump on this model does not last long. The water seal between pump and motor starts to leak that result in the adjacent motor bearing corroding and eventually failing, resulting in excessive noise. Later the water leak becomes so bad that it triggers the "E I" water leakage display and prevents it from completing the program. The pump and motor is sold as one unit and the whole unit must be replaced. I have tried to replace the faulty bearing and repacked the rubber seal with silicon grease but with no success. If anyone have repaired the water seal successfully please let us know.
