Error code E1 on LG dishwasher

I have a LG-14AW2 which displays the E1 code - sometimes immediately it has filled up and at other times later in the rinse cycle. I have taken the machine apart and there seems to be no leaking (as suggested in the handbook). Other suggestions from this site focus on the motor / impeller, but on closer inspection there appears to be no problem, i.e. no broken shaft, all the impeller vanes are intact. Any other suggestions?

    Same as the above - pump whirrs for 2 minutes on 1:37 min cycle before E1 appearing.

    Only had the E1 problem since they replaced the pc board 3 moths ago. Rang LG and they said to replace pump which we did and still get the E1 error code, there is NO leak in this machine - I feel it is the pc board.

    The latch on my LG dishwasher broke and after the tech put a new one it it beeps randomly during it's cycle, for some reason it seems to beep more when it is in it's drying cycle. He thought the new latch was faulty so he came back and put a second one in, but after a few days it still does it, oh by the way he also replaced the board too?

    I am having the same error for a few months now. The technician is confused. The motor was changed, a new capsitor was put in but the E1 error still appeared. So he put in a new pc board. And we still have the problem. I did however now now find out that tge E1 error doesnt appear on a quick wash.

    Hey all, I have had this problem with my LG dishwasher and I found that the fresh water 8nlet screen was plugged. After removing the capture plate i was able to access the screen. I cleaned as much of the debris from the screen and then gently pryed out the stainless screen to fully clean it with a toothbrush. After reassembly all codes went away and our dishwasher runs smoothly and quietly once again. This repair took about 30 minutes for a guy who had a broken finger...lol and now we live happily ever after, at least till the next time it gets plugged up.

I have this sometimes where E1 is reported and the pump remains on. The following voodoo has worked for me.

1) Make sure there is not a real drain problem.
2) Cancel any cycle or turn the power button off then on.
3) Run a rinse cycle (15 minutes).
4) If pump continues to run, turn off the power to the dishwasher, let stand for a minute, then repeat steps 2-3. If still not working, leave power off over night and leave the door open then try again.

In each iteration, it is important to curse your LG product and/or threaten it with replacement.

Hi Im a tech from LG, your outlet hose is too low or too far down the drain, it is losing water while it is washing making it think there is a leak...

    Its not the drain hose thing, I replaced the pump ( $100 ) and the circuit board ( $140 ).
    It still just fills, sits a bit, flashes E 1 beeps at me and pumps out.
    Any more ideas.

    I got the e1 several times. I raised up the hose in the back and that solved the issue! I ended up cutting a higher hole into the side of the cupboard to go to the disposal.

If it is a 240V machine, you need Wash Pump (5859DD9001A)

I had the same problem, machine would pump out, fill & then run the wash pum & stop at about 1:37 with an E1 error.

The impeller on the pump has come loose on the motor shaft so when the motor runs, the shaft spins inside the impeller & it won't pump the water around.

The machine will fill & empty OK.

I'm in Australia & I was able to get the pump online from the BigWarehouse spares.

I ended up pulling the front door and found a gray wire that was broken. It was in the bottom of the door where there is a plastic harness that wraps around the bottom of the door. I had to disassemble the plastic harness to get enough wire to solder it. The washer was good to go after replacing the door. My only advice is to look long and hard for a broken wire, it wasn't obvious as it was behind the harness.

Check the wires in the door panel, the inner door panel gets hot from the hot water and causes wires to melt into ins. coating and they brake. Simply repair wire and wrap with tape.

I solved this issue by going under my sink and pushing the hose more into the hole leading to the dishwasher. I can’t believe this small step was the solution, but it was. Thanks!

I've got an LG D1452LF dishwasher that I bought in 2013 - already had to replace the drainage pump (18-months ago) just out of the 2-year machine warranty and specific part not covered by the 10-year motor warranty, naturally. Been working fine but couple of days ago it got an E1 error. Switching off and then back on goes straight back to E1 - don't even need to press the power button. Drainage pump is still working as it runs continually while the E1 message is displayed and it is pumping water out. I removed the bottom front panel to take a peep underneath and discovered the bottom tray where all the electrical bits, pumps and hoses are had quite a bit of water in it. This is obviously triggering the E1 water leak alarm. I've tried sopping up the water as much as I can but still the E1 alarm persists. Called the LG repair company who charge a call-out fee to attend - their suggestion is to replace the entire sump assembly as everything is wet. Part of the 10-year warranty apparently. So parts are ordered, to be installed next week - just have to break-out the inlet hose that goes through the masonry wall so the unit can be removed for the repair. Fingers crossed it gets sorted with no additional cost to me.

My LG would start a cycle by pumping out, then filling up, stand for a while and then give the E1 error followed by pumping the water out. I couldn't see anything wrong at first. Took it apart and took out the circulating pump. I took the plastic housing and impeller off from the motor and found that I could not turn the motor shaft by hand. Opend it up and replaced the front bearing (R25, about 3$). Put everything together and it workes perfectly!!

I had a repairman come and he told me that LG has had problems with the intake valve pump on some of the dishwashers but not enough for them to warrant a recall. Therefore it cost me $146.00 in labor (since my warranty on labor just expired) to fix a problem that LG should have taken care of. He also replaced the circuit board since it was still under warranty which makes me wonder if that isn't also an issue with these dishwashers. All I know is that when the parts are out of warranty and something goes wrong I'm going to junk this piece of @##[email protected]#!!.

    My LG dishwasher when I turn it on it drains the water, then it fills it up with water, about 1 min. later gives me the code E1 and drains the water again...


    LG Dishwasher Displaying Fault Code E1 LDF7810BB/01 LEAKAGE ERROR // Excessive pump motor RPM due to water leakage
    The manufacturer has assigned this error or fault code to indicate that when the drain pump is running it is not experiencing the back pressure it expects. This is usually an indication that there is a water leak in the drain system. Check all hoses and connections. Check under the dishwasher for any major leak. If all checks out, be certain there is a proper loop in the drain hose to prevent siphoning. Finally, if the problem persists, the drain pump itself might be defective.

    Hi there Dolly, error code E1 relates to water leaking. Its the code the machine displays when the flood switch in the bottom of the machine activates. The flood switch activates when the bottom of the machine gets filled with water from a leak. I surgest you have a look underneth the machine for signs of water. I hope this helps regards Gary.

    LG dishwasher error code E1


    E1 is a code that the dishwasher displays after detecting a leak. There is a sensor on the pan at the very bottom of the unit. Take the bottom front panel off, look under the unit at the hose coming off the pump and your fill line to be sure no water is dripping. Run the unit in a wash cycle while doing this if possible.

    Model LD-14AW2 alarms after 1 minute of startup and says E1


    The E1 error is telling you that there is a leak in the dishwasher. After confirming that there is no leak, even directly under the dishwasher (remove the kickplate and use a flashlight.)
    After ruling that out, your problem is almost certainly caused by the drain hose between your dishwasher and your drain. There MUST be a 30" rise in the drain hose between the DW and the drain. If the hose just lays there, causing a siphoning effect (law of physics) that WILL drain water out of the dishwasher into the drain as soon as a wash or rinse cycle begins (after 1 - 2 minutes after they begin. Then the E1 error will be displayed.
    The BEST way to fix this problem is to install an AirGap valve (almost free @ any hardware store) in your counter/sink and then running the short pipe to your disposal or sing drain inlet. If that is not possible or for a quick and dirty repair until you can install the AirGap, tie the drain hose to the bottom of the counter top so the rise is created.
    Good Luck!

    LG Dishwasher making grinding noise then blinking E1 code 10 minutes later


    Well done by resolving this problem. The other way to avoid the siphoning problem through the drain hose is adding an air gap valve/connector (available at any hardware store). You can use it even if you don't have a garbage disposal in your kitchen sink. That will assure that you have the proper height of the drain hose.
    Hope this helps!

    LG LD-14AW2 (03 error)


    agreed O3 is not a LG error code. OE is more likely and if so it could be the main pcb faulty, a blocked drain pump or a blocked spigot under the sink where the drain hose connects onto.

    take care.
