Pump motor cycles LDS5811

Replaced motor after getting a motor fialure code and also found a broken gray wire in the door. Now pump motor will cycle when in the rinse and wash cycle, It has run up to ten minutes at a time and sometime only for a few seconds. What controls the pump motor that would cause it to cycle, flow sensor, overload? There are also other discolored wires, but they don't show any cracking or stress.

If your unit has a serial number that starts with 712 or lower then there may be an issue with the wiring in the door. This sounds like your case if you had a broken wire and discolored wires. The issue has to do with black, tarry residue getting on the wires and causing them to deteriorate from the inside out.

If this is your case, call LG customer service at 800-243-0000 and have them refer to service bulletin IDSW20070060. If your unit is out of warranty they may extend it to cover the repairs (the door liner and wire harness will need replaced).

My dishwasher is showing LE on the display and will run but doesn't seem to be cleaning the dishes. Any solutions?


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.......

Lds5811 pumps motor cycles


The pump is supposed to cycle 4-5 times at the beginning to prime the pump motor. This should last only for about a minute.

If your unit has a serial number that starts with 712 or lower then there may be an issue with the wiring in the door. This sounds like your case if you had a broken wire and discolored wires. The issue has to do with black, tarry residue getting on the wires and causing them to deteriorate from the inside out.

If this is your case, call LG customer service at 800-243-0000 and have them refer to service bulletin IDSW20070060. If your unit is out of warranty they may extend it to cover the repairs (the door liner and wire harness will need replaced).

Pump motor cycles


If you are still having problems, providing the serial number is actually important because of a retrofit to several items in the door panel. Which could actually be related to your symptom.
Please provide the serial number or report back what you did to resolve the problem. Thanks!

Fisher & Paykel GW712 error code 37


Ultimatly replaced the new pump with a "genuine" pump from F&P which fixed the problem permenantly. Interesting is that all the id tag details of the pump manufacturer were exactly the same on both "new" pumps. The only noticable difference was the impleller design which could have possibly been overloading the "generic" pump, causing it to cut out. One final note; it takes eight complete load cycles to be completed after a fault code has been repaired before the code resets.

Error code E1 on LG dishwasher


I have this sometimes where E1 is reported and the pump remains on. The following voodoo has worked for me.

1) Make sure there is not a real drain problem.
2) Cancel any cycle or turn the power button off then on.
3) Run a rinse cycle (15 minutes).
4) If pump continues to run, turn off the power to the dishwasher, let stand for a minute, then repeat steps 2-3. If still not working, leave power off over night and leave the door open then try again.

In each iteration, it is important to curse your LG product and/or threaten it with replacement.
