I am getting e1 code and the dishwasher is not leaking. I saw from a previous post that you said the motor spins too fast from impeller and sends E1 code. My question is to remedy this do you have to replace just the motor ~ 67$ on repairclinic.com or the whole assembly thats ~ 167-210$?

Re: lg dishwasher lds 5811st E1 error code
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

E1 means the following: Water Level in Drum lowering, this would usually mean there is a leak on one of the pipes. But from previous experiences it is more than likely that it is the Circulation pump. It will have to be replaced, as it is a common spare that has to be replaced on L.G Dishwashers (lifetime expectancy: 12 - 18 Months) - Not very expensive. Usually is about 20%-25% the price of a new Dishwasher. The Circulation pump is fitted to the sump. Part Number: 5859DD9001A

I would request you to 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.
i would look under the dishwasher.. i believe the modle you have sits in a pan and if it fills with so much water then it will put out that error code. more than likely a mouse chewed a small hole in the drain line.. i would uninstall the dishwasher and start from there.. when i say uninstall i mean pull it out from under the counter.
As per my email reply chazmano5, the problem is likely to be the water pump/motor assy.
They have a very common fault of the impeller breaking on the motor shaft. The motor still spins, but the impeller doesn't, so there is no water being pumped.
The machine senses there is no water pressure and shuts down, displaying E1 (eg: it thinks no water pressure means there must be a water leak) Unfortunately the motor/impeller is only available as a complete assembly.
