    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.

What can cause and lg dishwasher to not fill water and stop and show le code


Please try the plain VINEGAR in the bottom of your dishwasher. It cleans out the pipes. When you start the machine it automatically starts to drain whatever water has been left from previous cycle. When this cannot happen, due to blocked outlet pipe, it will not precede with the wash cycle. Adding the vinegar, leaving it a few hours, or overnight (hey, I left it for a week one of those times!), it is enough to liquify any heavy fats in that pipe...enough to start the cycle and the normal draining gets reinstated.Hope this helps you, it is such a pain to go & choose another dishwasher to fit into the space allowed & that has all the functions you need. This 'fix' cures all my dishwasher blues! Havagreatday!

U1 Error and Washer Stops Working


Hi,

"U1 error code" means the unit has failed to prime with water within 3 minutes. Its taking longer than expected to fill with water. Check the fill valve,it might be due to water supply problem, or the spray arm might not be in the exact position place.Check the above to fix this error code.

Thank you !!

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.

I get error code le on LG dishwasher.


hi,
le means locked motor disassemble the filter and work your way down to the macerator(steel chopper blade) remove it and see if the side labeled "this side up" is really up, its in english... dont think the chinese labourers paid attention to the warning cause i have seen alot that were wrong way

if it was installed correctly order the complete motor/sump assembly btw you do know LG d/w came with a 2 year warranty right? and some of the water distribution system had a longer limited warranty
read your manual, it states warranty, then price the part, then call warranty depot to ask them their service call and labour to install motor/sump


This part taken from a LG repair manual:
(Display Condition LE = Motor Error

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.


Remedy:

Check the wiring connection.
Replace the cause of restriction.
Replace the Washing Motor.
Replace the PCB.)
good luck.........

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.

LE light on...not filling with water.


ACCORDING TO SERVICE MANUAL, THE "L.E." ERROR CODE SUGGESTS A LOCKED ROTOR ON THE WASH MOTOR. CHECK THE WASH IMPELLER FOR A FOREIGN OBJECT. IF IT SPINS FREELY, CHECK THE WIRING TO THE WASH MOTOR FOR LOOSE CONNECTION.
THE L.G.HAS HAD A HISTORY OF MOTOR PROBLEMS.

YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO CANCEL THE PROGRAM AND DRAIN OUT THE WATER.
