Lds 5811ww dishwasher e1

I have the e1 error and the local repairman can not repair it. They have tried a new motherboard to no avail and have stated the problem is with the power getting to the unit. It is not 120 volt. They are wrong. I think I am on my own with this issue. Help.

LG have a history of E1 error problems.

The controller board can be one cause, however, most of these are caused by a faulty circulation pump.

The impeller breaks on the shaft and does not turn, so it doesn't produce pressure. A pressure sensor activates, bringing up the 'E1" message.

The impeller and pump are a complete assembly.

Replacing it usually fixes the problem.

Motor removal


I am having a same problem. You can open dishwasher sump assembly from inside the dishwasher and check if something is blocking white impeller. I tried to open impeller and sheared screw head as I did't realized it is left handed screw. Even after cleaning impeller you still get problem, you need to check from bottom and see if something is stuck there. If all right and you are still getting error then it is time to replace motor. In my case I ordered entire sump assembly as my seals were also wornout. Sump assy cost $113 on Sears part direct.

Lg dishwasher lds 5811st E1 error code


Hi Chaz,

The impeller breaks on the motor shaft. The motor still turns, but the impeller doesn't, so it doesn't pump water. Because the machine senses there is no water pressure from the pump, it shuts down & displays E1 (it thinks there's a water leak, due to no pressure)
Unfortunately the motor/impeller is only available as a complete assembly

Hope this helps

E1 error on LG dishwasher


As per my email reply chazmano5, the problem is likely to be the water pump/motor assy.

They have a very common fault of the impeller breaking on the motor shaft. The motor still spins, but the impeller doesn't, so there is no water being pumped.

The machine senses there is no water pressure and shuts down, displaying E1 (eg: it thinks no water pressure means there must be a water leak) Unfortunately the motor/impeller is only available as a complete assembly.

LD Dishwasher power problem


On the LDS5811 model, I doubt very much that the door switch would cause a full failure.
If you are confident the power is live into the dishwasher, the most common failure with this symptom is a failed controller card (PCB) and will require a service call to LG.

ther is a problem with the noise insulation in the door. It damages the coating on the wires and causes them to crack that can lead to any type of problem. lg recomends replacing the inner door and the wire harness hope you have warranty!!
