DIGITAL DISPLAY SAYS LE
Hello, W/D here.
The LE code indicates that the dishwasher thinks that there is a leak, and the leak detector shut the machine down and displayed the LE code.
If you in fact have a leak, it should be repaired either as warranty work or by a reputable repairperson. The LE code can be reset by turning off the circuit breaker controlling the power to the dishwasher for several minutes, then resetting it.
If you have a stainless dishwasher, it is guaranteed for life (usually) against leakage. Samsung will require a service call by their tech, and if the unit is unrepairable, will depreciate the unit before offering a refund. Not great. The good news is that these are fairly robust machines, and leakage might be no more than the door seal. Check the seal and reposition it if necessary, as they not only tend to flatten out, but they also tend to pull out of their grooves holding the seal in. It seems that in making the "tall tub" types, there is less space between the racks and the seals. Larger objects, especially on the upper rack, can bump the seal and pull it out of position a bit, creating a leak. It doesn't take much.
If you bought your machine from one of the major hardwares, and you got the extended warranty, they will make three attempts to repair the unit, then replace it if unsuccessful.
Hope that this was helpful to you. --W-D--Please feel free to rate this solution. Thanks.
