Question about LG LDF6810ST Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher
LG Dishwasher Model: LDF6810ST makes a loud grinding noise from the wash motor while running. After about 10 minutes into the cycle the dishwasher stops with a "E1" error code. I believe the wash motor is going, but I don't understand why the dishwasher is giving me an "E1" error code instead of an "LE" error code. Could I have multiple problems occuring or is this a common error code when the wash motor is going bad?
Ive got an LG LD1204w1 model dishwasher, the grinding sound started about a week before the E1 error code and incessant dinging began. I found FixYa the best site for LG solutions, the wiring had fused to the lining on the door as suggested, so a bit of electrical tape has done the trick as far as the E1 error and dinging is concerned (thankfully no broken wires)
However I still have the grinding sound during the wash cycle. Drainage and fill hoses are to specifications stated by LG, there is no wear on inspection, the unit isnt losing water during wash so the air/water issue I dont think is relevant to my situation. Is there anything else that could possibly be causing the awful noise its making? The noise seems to be coming from the bottom/underside of the dishwasher.

Well done by resolving this problem. The other way to avoid the siphoning problem through the drain hose is adding an air gap valve/connector (available at any hardware store). You can use it even if you don't have a garbage disposal in your kitchen sink. That will assure that you have the proper height of the drain hose.
Hope this helps!
