    LG dishwasher LDF6810ST. fills up with water, pauses for a little bit, then displays the error code LE.

  • dankersten Mar 03, 2009

    LE error code and the bottom of the dishwasher is filled with water. It will start again and drain the water but will not complete a full cycle.

Ok, Same problem where it would start. Then it would seem to pump out the old water for a few minutes. Then stop with the LE error. My serial number was 712 and below as mentioned above. If this happens, take the time to check the manual and remove the door cover. It has about 6 screws and you don't have to remove the unit.
Next, pull the door cover away from the door. You will have to unstick the fiberglass like stuff which will stay with the cover. It is sticking to this black tar stuff used for sound damping. The door cover will come free revealing this massive bunch of wires.
Don't be intimidated with the wirss. Trace the wires and find only the ones "stuck" into that black tar. The tar stuff melts the shielding on the wires and corrodes the wires. I found 2 wires melted and shorted.
I pulled out the wires, stripped and reconnected them and my unit tested fine. I rubber taped them back together and put the door back on for a final fix.
Works fine, and saved me $200.00 at least for a service call.

    Thanks a lot I saved also service call.

    Pulled the cover off and found 1 wire melted completely through and in two pieces. Thanks so much! Still in the process of fixing, but only took 10 minutes to get this far.

LE is a locked motor error. If the serial number on your unit starts with 712 or anything lower, then it is most likely a wiring issue inside the door.

If this is your case, call LG customer service at 800-243-0000 and have them refer to service bulletin # IDSW20070060. The door liner and the wiring harness will need to be replaced.

I had one where there was two broken wires inside the door where the tar or insulation like tar, melted the insulation of the wires and it took two and a half hours to find this problem.

The LE code also happened to my LG LDF6810ST.

Prior to the breakdown, I smelled a foul oder that smells like burning machine grease. Well, after two years of reliable and quiet service, the unit stopped working. It broke just past the 2 yr warranty expired - go figure.

Solution: my unit was fixed by replacing the seized motor. I got my LG motor replacement part (item #1267556) from RepairClinic.com for about $80. The LG support rep also advised me about corroded wiring harness located behind the front door panel - my checked out ok.

Word of caution - when you remove the screw which connects the plastic water pump wheel to the motor stem, be sure that you turn the screw CLOCKWISE to loosen the screw. Otherwise, if you do like I did, I completely messed up the screw head since I was trying to turn the screw counterclock to loosen it.

Good luck with your repair project.

Open the screws behind the door and reconnect the burnt wires. It takes 15 minutes.

The LE error code keeps flashing why?


LE means level error. The water fill timer timed out before there was enough water in the machine to clean the clothes. Try this:
  1. Turn the hot and cold water supply taps, located at the end of the fill hoses, as far as they will go toward the "Open" position.
  2. Move the washing machine away from the wall, and examine the hot and cold water pipes for kinks, twists or other obstructions.
  3. Unscrew the fill hoses at the washing machine, and inspect the small plastic screens inside for signs of an obstruction.
  4. Check the water pressure in your home; a reading lower than 30 psi might cause the fill times to extend beyond the time the washing machine is programmed to wait. Slow flowing faucets and shower heads are a sign of low water pressure.
  5. Call for service.

Le error code


The error code "LE" appears after an unsuccessful attempt to fill the drum with water that results in the water level being too low to safely begin cleaning. The product manual suggests calling for service, but there are several steps you can take to try to resolve the issue at home.

Lg washer wm2077cw had le error and did not work, blew in to tubing connecting tub to a sensor at top and now my reading went from 230 to 256. washer wont stop filling , leaks out front door. what is wrong...


When you blew into the tubing, you destroyed the water level sensor. You will need to change the water level sensor to stop the unit from over filling. That part number is 6601ER1006E. As for the LE error code, you one of 2 things go bad. Either the motor sensor has failed or the control board has failed. Chances are the motor sensor has failed and is the cheaper part to replace. The part number for that is 6501KW2002A
Good luck

Error code LE and OE


The LG error code OE simply means “the pump is blocked”. Presumably the water isn’t being emptied properly. Check the exit hose, it may be clogged.
LE Code refers to a motor overload.Since the pump is blocked,the motor becomes inefficient in working.Once you get the pump cleared from blockages,I assure that you can get rid of these errors.Good luck with the machine.Please do post the results and comments.

LE error after machine fills with water


LE error means level error (the d/w fills up but the water drain out at the same time somehow). I had a case once where the drain hose at the back of the d/w was resting on the floor to drain underneath the cust house. problem is like any drain hose it has to GO UP FIRST and then down to the ground otherwise the gravity will push the water out as the d/w fills up hence the LE error.

take care.
