Just replaced drain pump and was running wash cycle to test for leaks and 5 minutes into the cycle, an LE error code popped up. Is this for low water?

SOURCE: LE Code Help - DMR57 Series

I had the same problem. On the bottom of the unit is a tray the catches any water that leaks from the tub. In the tray is a sensor that shuts off the unit and water if it get wet. Take the tray off and see if water is in it. If so, you have a leak somewhere. You might be able to dry off the sensor and get it to work but if you have a leak, you want to know. Best way to check is put the dishwasher up on two milk crates, leave the tray off and turn it on the rinse cycle and see if any water drips.
On my first unit, the rubber seal was installed wrong at the factory. They replaced the seal, but the error came up again. When checked out, the tub was leaking too. The dishwasher was replaced with another one. After one wash, the same problem occurred. LE error. I took it back and got a different Samsung model. It just stopped working after only two weeks. Evidently the touch pad sensors are bad because it will not turn on. Needless to say I'm getting tired of installing dishwashers. I think I will go for a different brand.

SOURCE: My Samsung DMR57 Dishwasher gives me error code

Our unit started displaying code 9E after filling, draining and filling again. At the beginning it was enough just to restart it. Finally this trick didn't work anymore. Before calling service for out of warranty I decided to take the unit out of the cabinet and start it. Of course this didn't fixed the problem. Then i noticed where the water comes in and I took off the panel on the left side bottom. 366571e.jpg
Under the panel there is a white box that has a floater inside. The floater is pushing a lever that actuates a micro switch. I noticed that the lever wasn't moving as the machine started to fill in with water. The lever was stuck. An easy touch on the lever fixed the problem and the machine started working. 677e4ea.jpg
I will put back the washer for now but if it happens again in the next future i'll have to find a more permanent fix.

SOURCE: Samsung DMR78 dishwasher makes a grinding noise at

Check the brackets that hold the top rack for any broken plastic brackets. My dishwasher was making the same noise and after noticing the broken plastic pieces I pulled out the dishwasher put it on its side removed a white panel on the bottom that is attached with two screws, removed the drain line and inside there were two plastic tabs from the broken bracket. Once those were removed the grinding noise stopped. The bracket holding the drain hose can be removed with a pair of pliers.

SOURCE: my dishwasher model number dmr77lhb

I fixed mine by pulling out the unit then flipping over to access the white tray that covers the bottom of the unit. Remove this then dry it out...there's a sensor in there that triggers the LE code. It could be a leak but in most cases it's just built up condensation. EE1/HE/HE1

  • The EE and HE codes refer to temperature errors. The EE1 designation refers to a thermistor issue, and the HE codes refer to heater problems. These are all functional errors that require a certified service technician, but disconnecting the circuit breaker in the meantime can prevent the problem from growing worse.
  • 4E/4E1
  • The 4E codes indicate a problem with the water supply. If you see the 4E code, make sure the water supply line is correctly attached and open and not frozen or clogged. If you get a 4E1 code, check the temperature of the incoming water supply and ensure that it is below 176 degrees. If either of these issues persist despite your best efforts, contact a repair center.
  • 5E
  • The 5E code means there is a problem with the drain. Make sure the drain hose and openings are not clogged or obstructed. If they are not, and the code remains, disconnect the circuit breaker to reduce the risk of electric shock and contact a service center.
  • oE/9E
  • The oE and 9E codes refer to issues with the water level. The oE code means that the dishwasher is filling too much, and the 9E code means it is not filling enough. Disconnect the circuit breaker for safety and contact a repair center.
  • LE
  • The LE code indicates a leak. To keep from voiding your warranty, do not attempt to diagnose and repair the leak yourself. Close the water supply valve and disconnect the circuit breaker to avoid electric shock and contact a repair technician.
  • 6E2/PE
  • The 6E2 and PE codes both indicate functional errors that must be repaired by a professional. The 6E2 code indicates a pressed key error, and the PE code refers to a problem with the half-load function. Disconnect the circuit breaker in either case and contact a repair service.

    Samsung Dishwasher (DMR57LFS): Error code oE. Fills...fills some more...then drains.


    Samsung Dishwasher 0E Error - We had other appliances on that circuit. We believe when those appliances were turned on it created an undervoltage condition in the dishwasher, causing another sensor to send the high level error code 0E. We believe this is the problem because it only started after we added the new hot water dispenser on the same circuit. The problem went away when we leave it off for the whole dishwasher cycle. I'm guessing it could also be caused by brown-outs and other large electrical loads cycling in the same household. That's the theory anyway. The folks who sold us the dishwasher suggested turning off the breaker, to reset the computer. Good idea, but not for our particular case.

    The manufacturer has assigned this error or fault code to indicate a problem with the water circulation pump motor. Turn the appliance off for 30 minutes to allow it to cool. Then, restart the cycle. If the error code returns check the wiring to the pump motor. Also, if the wash impeller is broken this error can appear. If the impeller and wire harness check out, and the code keeps returning, you will probably need to replace the pump and motor assembly.

    This error can sometimes present because of a miscommunication between the control panel and the wash motor. In this instance, the washer simply needs to be reset.

    Step 1: Unplug the washing machine.
    Step 2: While the washer remains unplugged, press and hold the [Start/Pause] button on the front panel for 5 seconds.
    Step 3: Plug the unit back in, and run a rinse and spin cycle to test if the LE code is cleared.

    Are there soap suds visible in the drum?
    Over-sudsing is the main cause of LE error codes. Using non-HE (high efficiency) detergents or too much detergent will cause stress on the motor. In addition, detergent residue can also cause leaking and odor. Follow these steps to resolved an LE error code caused by over-sudsing.

    Step 1: Unplug the washer and allow the unit to sit for 30 minutes to give the suds time to dissolve.
    Step 2: Plug the washer back in and press [Power] to turn on the washer.
    Step 3: Do not choose a washing cycle. Press the [Spin Speed] key until "No Spin" is selected.
    Step 4: Press [Start/Pause] to begin a drain only cycle.
    Step 5: After the drain only cycle has completed, remove the clothing items from the machine. Turn the power back on and select [Rinse and Spin] and then press [Start/Pause]. This will remove excess soap suds and light residue from the drum. Repeat this step until no visible suds are in the drum of the washer.

    Hope this helps.

    Display Condition LE = Motor Error

    Possible Cause For Error Occurrence:

    Wiring connection is OK?

    Here are few troubleshooting tips that i have found. If you acquire further assistance please let me know...

    Is this a new installation?
    In new installations, this error can sometimes present because of a miscommunication between the control panel and the wash motor. In this instance, the washer simply needs to be reset.
    Step 1: Unplug the washing machine.
    Step 2: While the washer remains unplugged, press and hold the [Start/Pause] button on the front panel for 5 seconds.
    Step 3: Plug the unit back in, and run a rinse and spin cycle to test if the LE code is cleared.

    Step 1: Unplug the washer and allow the unit to sit for 30 minutes to give the suds time to dissolve.
    Step 2: Plug the washer back in and press [Power] to turn on the washer.
    Step 3: Do not choose a washing cycle. Press the [Spin Speed] key until "No Spin" is selected.
    Step 4: Press [Start/Pause] to begin a drain only cycle.

This will remove excess soap suds and light residue from the drum. Repeat this step until no visible suds are in the drum of the washer.

    Has a large load size been used with a gentle wash setting?
    Gentle wash cycles such as Perm Press, Delicates, Hand Wash, and Wool/Silk should only be used for smaller loads. Because the cycles are more gentle while tumbling and spinning, too many items in the drum can register as an issue with the motor. In this instance reset the unit and run a test rinse and spin cycle.

    Has the washer been overloaded?
    Single bulky items or large loads can add extra weight to the drum and place stress on the motor. Remove some of the clothing and restart. If the issue is still present after a few items have been removed, unplug the washer for 30 minutes to allow the motor to cool and then restart the cycle.

    Error code 2H


    The control panel needs to be replaced (indicated by the "2H" error code displayed at the start of the cycle).
    BTW - The number 1 displayed at the end of the cycle indicates the cycle has timed out (i.e., it doesn't mean 1 minute remaining). Hence the continued running of the unit. Until you replace the control panel, you'll have to manually cancel the cycle at this point.
