The impeller breaks on the motor shaft. The motor still turns, but the impeller doesn't, so it doesn't pump water. Because the machine senses there is no water pressure from the pump, it shuts down & displays E1 (it thinks there's a water leak, due to no pressure)
Unfortunately the motor/impeller is only available as a complete assembly
Hope this helps

Please check at both ends of the drain hose and confirm that you do nit have a leak. Also, please confirm that water is not leaking directly under the dishwasher.
If you are certain that you do not have a real leak, check the impeller (under the mesh filter in the sump area beneath the lower dish rack) is not damaged and is firmly in place.
The E1 error code is a Leakage Error, detected by the motor spinning faster than it should if the unit is filled with water.
Please report back with what you find. Good Luck!

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!

This code is for a "leak" that the system's computer is detecting. Let me guess...Does the system make a groaning noise like it's not getting enough water? Here's what you should do...First, pull the lower dish rack out and thoroughly clean the filter. If you're easily able to remove the filter, do so and continue to clean. Also look for any debris under the filter assembly. A final step to completely make sure all of the water lines are clear of debris, you'll need to remove power, pull the washer out of the cabinet, and then (carefully) tip it on its right side. Next, remove the two plastic assemblies that are on the left side and remove them from the dishwasher you will need a vice grips to remove the hose clamps from behind them, you will also need to remove the round circular water intake plastic disk that is on the inside of your dishwasher on the left hand side right in the middle of the left wall and clean them. Once the water can run freely through these plastic parts you will get a good water flow and you should be fine. It's a bit of a task, but not too difficult. To minimize this from happening in the not-too-distant future, you may want to ensure that you're not putting too many dishes in that contain heavy, solid food debris. Also, I recommend using the Finish brand tablets instead of heavy liquid detergent. It not only is more cost-effective, it also does a wonderful job and won't build up in the water lines of your nice dishwasher.
I hope this helps and please feel free to ask me if you need any further assistance!
Take care and have a WONDERFUL holiday season!
