    Our Samsung DMR57 dishwasher was installed yesterday and the LE error light came on during the first run. After what I read here, it is going back to the store! I was involved in the Magtag Neptune washer civil suit and I refuse to deal with lemon products anymore!

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.

Dishwasher is showing an 'LE' error code? What does this mean?


LE on a sumsung dishwasher is a "LEak" warning. There is water in the base of the machine. If you tip the machine sideways 45% the water will run out and the machine will start again. This will not however fix the leak! But it will confirm that you have one

What is error code LE?


An LE error code means problems with the motor. It can either be load issues, excessive suds, thermal overload protection, or a new installation. To solve this motor problem, you must first uncover the underlying cause.

Door on diswahser not shut completely during cycle. water leaked out onto floor. now flashing LE and cannot power off or on.


Good picture! The LE message indicates a leak, but besides leaking on your floor, apparently some water has gotten into the base and triggered the water-leak sensor. Basically, that water must all be sopped out dried out, then the message will go away by itself. You will probably have to pull the dishwasher out to be able to get to the water in the base.

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!

Error F1 on sansung dishwasher


F1 fault code is an indication that you have a water leak. Before calling in a professional, try to troubleshoot the problem on your own. Many times it can be something as simple as a leaky hose, a broken seal or a blocked drain hose causing the F1 error.

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.

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
  • 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.

    Had something in pump had service guy fix it he cant get code le out i dont want to pull it out cuting power di not fix can you help


    LE error code is a water leakage underneath the sump pump. There is a sensor with 4 wires. Could be corrosion on it or there is actually a leak underneath. You best bet would to go take the underneath appart look at the sensor and look for signs of leakages. Also take the small pump off, put some of that white tape plumbers use(I forget the name right now) and put it back on.
