Please check at both ends of the drain hose and confirm that you do nit have a leak. Also, please confirm that water is not leaking directly under the dishwasher.
If you are certain that you do not have a real leak, check the impeller (under the mesh filter in the sump area beneath the lower dish rack) is not damaged and is firmly in place.
The E1 error code is a Leakage Error, detected by the motor spinning faster than it should if the unit is filled with water.
Please report back with what you find. Good Luck!

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!

The error code your receiving is an "Inlet Error" message. This means that no water is going into the Dishwasher. Please check the following:
1) Is the tap open.
2) Is the inlet hose kinked?
3) Is your water pressure fine? Because anything less than 0.3kgf/cm(bar) is not going to work
If all of the above is fine, then take off the inlet hose of the dishwasher, and clean the filter which is between the hose and machine (small circular filter). If still not working, then you will need to replace the inlet valve. I would suggest getting a L.G service agent to do so.
Good Luck :-) - J.Q
