LE error means leak. It could be the drain pump came off due to part failure. Or something was spilled into side of dishwasher and it went into bottom tray where sensor is located. For this you would need to pull unit out tip on side and undo bottom pan and see if you can find where leak is coming from. Or if you feel you can't do this call 1800 Samsung for a Samsun product. Or for other brands call there office sometimes with a little work they will help you out.

this issue relates to a temporary power failure (EG: storm knocking out the power or that a breaker has tripped) this can be fixed by pressing the power key on the dish washer and the error code should clear if not contact samsung for a replacement control board

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.

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!

I have a Samsung dishwasher that is displaying and LE error. What is it and how much to fix?

Oh no! LEaking error! Could be drain pump, or drain hose (most common). Cound be inlet port or the main pump. But it will probably require a professional to determine the cause and to repair it, because Samsung dishwashers are very difficult to work on and repair.

Unable to reset after LE problem.

LE is a Leak error, the leak sensor is on the very bottom of the machine. you can let it sit for a while till the water dries and it will start again. If it happens again then you'll have to call for service, that or pull out the unit yourself.. prob. not recomended.
