Behind the back panel of the freezer section is the evaperator assembly. on the rh side of the evaperator is a sensor pack that is for the defrost cycle. there is a thermo fuse inside of this pack that is open. The fridge goes into an error state if this fuse is open. unplugging the fridge resets the system. the sensor pack will have to be replaced.

When the filter freezes up, the outside casing may have cracked and will leak water when you dispense water through the door. You will need to have the filter replaced and that should take care of the problem. But the filter should never have frozen in the 1st place. You will need to call a qualified LG technician to see what's going on inside the refrigerator.

Check and clean the condenser. Unplugging the system allows it to cool off. when you plug it back in it will cool until the heat rebuilds if not rejected through the condenser. Make sure the condenser fan comes on when the compressor runs. A faulty fan motor will cause the same type of problem.

SOURCE: control panel shows "Er dH"
The “er dh” code means a problem with the defrost cycle. It is triggered when the defrost sensor does not reach 46 degrees F within 2 hours of the defrost cycle starting. If indeed the defroster is not working, the evaporator (in the bottom of the fridge in the freezer compartment and behind a plastic cover) will eventually ice up completely, blocking the flow of cold air to the upper compartment. Use a thermometer to check the upper compartment to verify that no or little cool air is reaching it. If the evaporator is iced up, the defrost cycle is not working. Quick fix to restore operation to the upper compartment: tape over all vent holes in the upper section to keep that cool while you work below. There are about 6-7 vent opens in the back wall and two large one on the floor of upper compartment. Remove freezer door, drawers, slide rails and pull back the plastic cover (2 screws hold it in place, one in the center and one behind the ice maker) at the rear of the freezer section to expose the evaporator. Spray hot water on the ice accumulation on the evaporator (it looks like a radiator) to melt it (remembering to sop up what flows to the drain pan at the rear). The entire operation can be done in about 30 minutes (most time is used for removing ice and sopping up water from the drain pan). All should be ok for 3-4 days depending on humidity before the evaporator ices up again. In the meantime, order a replacement control board. You can view this by removing a panel w/ 3 screws at the rear left of the refrigerator. This panel controls all refrigerator functions, including defrost. Most likely, the integrated relay for the defrost cycle failed. Swapping out panels is a 10 minute job. Panels cost about $116 incl shipping from repairclinc.com. Shipping is about a week. You can find a free service manual on line that will help to identify all parts and is particularly useful for removing doors and trays so you can get at the evaporator. All in all, the customer service is useless. The fridge however is very easy to work on and amazingly simple. The replacement board has a slightly different relay for the defrost heater, so LG may have realized a problem existed with the original. It is also possible that electrical surges damaged the relay. In any case, 10 minutes and $116 seems pretty minor to have the fridge back to new condition. Good luck.
