Lg dishwasher lds 5811st E1 error code

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$?

Thanks,
Chaz

    Well ive taken everything apart and the impeller has a grooved slot which fits on the motor plus a reverse threaded screw so i dont think it is slipping. Im going to go ahead and order apump and see if that fixes it. thx.

Hi Chaz,

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

Error code E1


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

See below a image of what a Circulation Pump looks like:

LG 3 in 1 Dishwasher model LD2131SH showing E1, leaks water


e1 is a leakage error. you will have to find where it is leaking from...crack hose .crack motor assy.. water must be leaking
The excessive RPM of Washing Motor happened during Wash cycle due to water leakage.
Water leakage in Hose connections. Water is leaked by damages. The Motor Water Seal leakage of Sump assembly. The height of Drain Hose connection (sink-Drain Hose) is not over 20 . Impeller of the Washing Pump is worn away.

"E1" problem


Hi,

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.

Hope this helps resolve the issue.

God Bless

Get an error code of E1 a few minutes after you start the wash mode. Manuels said that it is a water leakage problem,but it doesnt say where to look or what to do about it.


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.

E1 error on LG dishwasher


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.

Lds 5811ww dishwasher e1


LG have a history of E1 error problems.

The controller board can be one cause, however, most of these are caused by a faulty circulation pump.

The impeller breaks on the shaft and does not turn, so it doesn't produce pressure. A pressure sensor activates, bringing up the 'E1" message.

The impeller and pump are a complete assembly.

Replacing it usually fixes the problem.
