Re: water leaking from dishwasher lg model lds5811ww
The drain line is clean. Have you checked to make sure the the rest of the drain is clear all the way down to the main drain?. Also check the pump to make sure that it is working properly, it might be pumping water in, but it may not be wanting to pump the water out

A very frustrating issue to be sure and these questions are not meant to be flippant but I do want to find out if there is actually more than one problem. Does your machine have water leaking even when it is not turned on? You mention that the dishwasher is not emptying - do you simply mean is it not emptying properly?
If water is coming out when the machine is not on, it means you have a leak at the water supply connection that only stops when you turn the water valve off. If the machine fills and immediately starts leaking water during the wash cycle, it means there is a gravity leak usually near the pump. If the water only leaks when the machine should be draining it, it means you have a leak somewhere in the drain line - a not uncommon problem. I've seen several instances where mice have chewed a small hole in the plastic drain line to get the water.
Can you give more specifics about when the water is coming out? Also, your make and model number would be helpful.
Leakage error > Conditon: Excessive RPM of washing motor happened during wash cycle due to water leakage.
Possible cause: Water leakage in hose connections,water is leaked by damages. The motor water seal leakage of sump assembly. The height of drain hose connection ( sink drain hose ) is not over 20". Impeller of the washing pump is worn away.
Does it leak during pump-out only? If so , must be drain hose .To see everything,remove kick plate to isolate leak. Check hose connections. Fill and drain and observe.Or run a whole cycle with kick plate off to find leak.
it means excessive r.p.m.'s of the wash motor during a wash cycle due to water leakage due to a leaking drain hose,the drain hose is not over 20" to the drain,a broken pump impeller,a damaged motor water sump seal
If you've checked everything, you will need to replace the impeller possibly.

Assuming that you have checked under the dishwasher for a leak (through a faulty sump gasket):
Since there is not actual leak, check the following:
-Confirm that the height of Drain Hose connection
(sink-Drain Hose) rises greater than 20′ _minimum_ as it travels to the drain connection.
-If that does not solve the problen, it is probably a worn/broken Impeller of the Washing Pump.
Unless you are mechanicly incliend, a service call is probably the way to do. If you need further steps, please reply. Otherwise, after you ahve used the advise, please accept this solution.
