Question about LG LDF6810ST Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher
STARTS TO WORK FILL UP WATER AND STOPS AND ERROR CODE SHOWS UP READS LE
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.

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.
