Question about LG 24 in. LDS 5811 Built-in Dishwasher
It is important to start where the drain hose connects to the drain. Probably connects indirectly to the garbage disposal. Look for blockage there and work your way back to the dishwasher.
IF you can't find a blockage, then it is time to remove your lower spray arm and the approximately 9 screws that secure the filter assembly to the sump floor. Rinse everything that you remove.
Using a flashlight, inspect the entire sump area for debris (watch out for broken glass!) Look closely where the drain pump is located. You will probably find some sort of blockage jamming that pump.
Reassemble and test. It is rare, but an OE error could be created by a failing drain pump motor. But try everything else first.

OE in your dishwasher is a
drain error and dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked
drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain
is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then
remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump
for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely.
Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller & clean the
chopper assembly. If the issue
returns after cleaning then the drain pump assembly should be replaced. Hope
this helps...please post back for further assistance.
