    I have the same error code LE , and I replaced the motor and still have the same error code . and I have called LG and they confirmed the open motor . I think I am going to change dishwashers . Has anybody called around and found a lot of people that will work on these appliances , I found one willing to work on it if I paid him directly and collected my money from the factory . Check for yourself see how many people are willing to work on LG products and those that will say you cant get parts .

    I don't really know what I'm doing...I just checked this website to see if I could find out what the LE code is. But I have to report the same problems...water standing at the base of the dishwasher and after about five minutes the LE light comes on...it shuts every function off. If this is a common problem, you would think that LG would have a solution for it.

    I have the LE problem also.

    Online chat with LG said this:

    : It means the motor or a part near it is needing service.
    and gave me the numbers of 2 service centers here.

    Paid good money for something that only lasted less then 2 years!

Try checking the wiring in the door for breaks and repair by cutting and splicing with electrical tape. This site has the Service Manual: http://136.166.4.200/contents/Dishwasher/LDS5811/LDS5811_Service_Manual.pdf

You have a water fill problem.
Make sure the water supply is turned on.
Could be a bad water valve,bad wire bad timer,etc.

Copy and paste this Factory Service manual to help in diagnosis.

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.

I use my diswasher in two year 10 times last night i put some dishes and 5 minutes latter i have LE code I read is a motor imposible i rare use the machine


all it means is that something is jammed inside the motor unit. could be a hard item like piece of bone or hard seed that missed the filter. Or could be a spoon or something jamming the impeller arm.

If you are confident in opening the base then check the service manual for details

LE error message


Hi there,

Well LE means locked motor, this seems to be a very common problem withe these dishwashers.

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.

Anyway the LE error code is not all-ways indicative of a motor problem. There are also strong chances of any lose connection (wire), so first you can simply unscrew the front door panel from the retaining screws on the inside of the perimeter of the door. Once the screws are removed pull down and out to remove the door panel. Remove the sound insulating material and you will see several wires routed from the contol panel the length of the door to underneath the unit. Inspect the wires thoroughly. Near the bottom is where the pinching can take place. There are two gray wires and if you have been getting the "LE" error code, one of those wires is most likely broken or pinched. Splice, reconnect, solder or tape.......

Please follow the below link for more information (the link contain service manual, you can check the page number 25) -

LG LDS5811BB Dishwasher


Some of the LG LDS5811 had problems with the wiring harness in the door panel. This is nothing to mess with unless you have disconnected the DW from power.
You can open the door panel by removing the screws around the inside edge of the DW. Or, better yet, firmly but politely contact LG service and tell them you are aware of LDS5811 dishwashers having these symptoms being caused by _melting_ wires in inside the door panel. This is true and even if the DW is out of warranty, LG should fix this problem at no cost to you.
Good Luck!
