First off, clean the detergent dispenser as best you can using white vinegar.. make sure you get any and all left over soap deposits off the cup and edges of it then,... try cycling the dishwasher without any dishes on the hottest setting and after it is about ten minutes into the cycle.. pause it and add two cups of white vinegar inside the dishwasher.. That should remove most , if not all left over deposits from the system. See if that frees up the dispenser .. Make sure the drain filter is has been cleaned thoroughly prior to running this process.. Hope this helps...

SOURCE: ERROR CODE "TE"
I had the tE error code on my dishwasher LDF7811ST and noticed that with the door half open the error would not appear. I faked the door being closed (pushed in the top latch (can be unlocked by pulling out with a paperclip after the test) after which the washer worked fine: suspected the wiring harness. Removed the stainless steel front and discovered quickly that 1 wire was cut (might have made contact with the door half open), 2 wires to the point where the insulation was gone and the bare conductor exposed (!)and 2 more were about to to be cut completely! I soldered and shrink wrapped the wires and the problem was gone. Made some pictures for evidence and plan to contact LG as this is a fire hazard!

Thanks for using FixYa. Dishwasher not draining properly or not draining at all issues can arise due to different reasons. Usually, these issues are related to kinked hoses, knocked out disposer unit (if connected with the dishwasher drain hose) & clogged drain pump & filter.
Also note that dishwashers do not drain completely after a finished cycle and this is normal. Dishwashers are designed to leave some water in the unit to ensure that the heating element doesn’t overheat. If you suddenly begin to experience a large amount of water being retained in your dishwasher, you have a problem. Some of the most common reasons include that the drain hose isn’t working properly, the drain pump isn’t working correctly, or possibly there is a plumbing problem in your home’s drain lines.
First check whether the drain is not clogged or blocked and the line is not kinked. Check all the hoses for blockages & also clean the air gap. Has the disposer been replaced recently? If so, chances are the knockout is still in place. Simply remove the drain hose from the disposer, and knock out the plug. If the disposer has not been replaced, try removing the drain hose from the disposer and use a wet-dry vacuum (prepared for water, of course) to **** any water (and hopefully anything else) from the drain line. Then reconnect the hose, and test the unit. If you have checked the air gap and the drain hose and can’t locate the problem, then it is an issue with the drain pump of the dishwasher.
