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: SE error code on Samsung dishwasher

Here are the error codes from Samsung's website:

Error Codes spacer.gif If your dishwasher is displaying an error code, please refer to your users manual for an explanation. If you don't have your users manual on hand, you can download it from Samsung's Download Center. To go to the Download Center and download the users manual for your dish washer, click here.
Common error codes caused by installation errors are:

  • 5E which indicates a kinked or bent drain hose
  • 4E which indicates that the water supply valve is closed or not fully open
  • LE which indicates a leak.
I hope that this helps!

SOURCE: bad smell from my samsung dmr77lhs dishwasher what to do?

Put about three or four drops of eucalypt oil into your dishwasher and put it on a wash cycle - you don't need to use the drying cycle. Then is should smell beautifully. It's probably just the newness of the machine with seals and parts all giving off the smell. If that doesn't work contact the dealer and get them to find out what it is. After all you paid good money for it.
Good Luck

This does sound like a problem with the "anti-flood" device that does detect water (leak / spill) at the base of the washer. This device is a protection device that consists of a polystirene float and a micro swithch. Once a water leak od spill is detected it automatically puts the washer in pump out mode. You need to determine if a leak exists that has caused the float to trigger the micro switch and clear the water / leak. This should put the washer back to normal.

SE code on Samsung DW80F800 . is it the same response as given for the Samsung DMR77lhs


Newsflash!!!

Found the problem, after having this error several times, replacing parts, and even redirecting my drain line...

Read the owner's manual, and it says to use .5 ounces of dishwasher liquid. That is only 1 tablespoon, or 15 milliliters.

There are even lines in the fill box inside the dishwasher, 15 milliliters, and 25 milliliters... 15 milliliters is less that 1/3 capacity, and we were filling it all the way up.

So... The problem was too much soap, leading to too many suds, the air in those suds lowered the density of the water so much it messes with the sensors monitoring flow.

HOW TO FIX LE ERROR CODE ON SAMSUNG DISHWASHER DMR78AHS


An LE error code on your dishwasher stands for "LEaking."

There is, what I call, a drip pan on the bottom that the water is dripping into. Remove your dishwasher and take off the lower the side panels to get a look inside the drip pan. If you have water in there, try to find out where it's coming from.

If there are no signs of water, tip the dishwasher over on its side and remove the plastic panel on the bottom of the dishwasher. Once removed, you can disconnect the connector to the leak sensor (it's mounted upside-down, with 4 wires coming out of it. If I remember right, the wires are blue and red).

Flip the dishwasher back upright and plug it in and see if your LE error code pops back on. If it pops back on, then you have a bad board. If it doesn't, then you either have a leak, or the "fangs" on the leak detector are shorting out, somehow.

Good luck!

DIGITAL DISPLAY SAYS LE


Hello, W/D here.
The LE code indicates that the dishwasher thinks that there is a leak, and the leak detector shut the machine down and displayed the LE code.
If you in fact have a leak, it should be repaired either as warranty work or by a reputable repairperson. The LE code can be reset by turning off the circuit breaker controlling the power to the dishwasher for several minutes, then resetting it.
If you have a stainless dishwasher, it is guaranteed for life (usually) against leakage. Samsung will require a service call by their tech, and if the unit is unrepairable, will depreciate the unit before offering a refund. Not great. The good news is that these are fairly robust machines, and leakage might be no more than the door seal. Check the seal and reposition it if necessary, as they not only tend to flatten out, but they also tend to pull out of their grooves holding the seal in. It seems that in making the "tall tub" types, there is less space between the racks and the seals. Larger objects, especially on the upper rack, can bump the seal and pull it out of position a bit, creating a leak. It doesn't take much.
If you bought your machine from one of the major hardwares, and you got the extended warranty, they will make three attempts to repair the unit, then replace it if unsuccessful.
Hope that this was helpful to you. --W-D--Please feel free to rate this solution. Thanks.

Samsung DMR77LHS Tall Tub Dishwasher displays HE code (flashing) and does not finish the cycle. I am very handy and would like to repair this myself. so as much detail as possible is appreciated.


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.

    My dishwasher model number dmr77lhb is showing error code le and there are no apparent external water leaks how can I rest


    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

    A screw fell inside the tub I took the bottom sreen apart it was uder the base were the impeller is, took that apart, put everthing back together and went to start the dishwasher up and the LE code...


    try this. I have a similar problem and now have the LE code flashing. I saw this advice and am going to try the fix now.

    You are barking up the wrong tree. Here is the real fix for the LE problem.First disconnect all power ( power supply, circuit breaker, wiring etc) to the machine. Disconnect all tubing to the machine ( drainage pipe and braided hose feed) Then you need to take out the dishwasher, turn it over and then remove the large white sensor tray that will expose the leakage sensor held on by 2 screws. Remove the screws and dry up the sensor tips (4) with a dry towel and dry up the tray all around as well. Replace the tray and re connect all tubing and power. You're problem should be solved and you just saved yourself a pile of money in service repair bill. M.D.
