The most common problem on an LG dishwasher when error code E1 is reported but there is no actual leak found is the problem of a natural syphon being created by improper installation of the dishwasher. Pretty easy to fix: Either add an Air Gap valve (available at any hardware store for almost free) or follow the drain hose from the dishwasher to the drain. Raise the hose and attach the hose to the up onto the bottom of the countertop. Adding that "rise" eliminates the possibility for the syphon effect to drain the dishwasher before the drain cycle begins.
If the hose ever fall back down, the problem will return immediately. Adding the Air Gap valve is harder but is far more permanent (and complies with construction codes that really should not be ignored.)

If you've checked everything, you will need to replace the impeller possibly.
Leakage error > Conditon: Excessive RPM of washing motor happened during wash cycle due to water leakage. Possible cause: 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.

This happens to my LG dishwasher every 6 months or so. It also makes a groaning sound as if the system is starved for water. The resolve the problem by removing the dishwasher and laying it over on it's right side. I then remove the two plastic assemblies that are on the left side and I remove them from the dishwasher (you will need a vice grips to remove the hose clamps from behind them, you will also need to remove the round circular water intake plastic disk that is on the inside of your dishwasher on the left hand side right in the middle of the left wall) and clean them. Once the water can run freely through these plastic parts you will get a good water flow and you should be fine. Until you have time to do this I recommend putting a few quarts of hot water into your dishwasher once you start to hear the groaning problem. This solution should be very easy for anyone who is comfortable doing their own oil change. Oh, and turn off the power supply first.
