SOURCE: E1 error on LG - LD-4120M

E1 is a common error in the LG Dishwasher range and is usually caused by the failure of the circulation pump and/or the impeller.

The motor and impeller are a complete unit.

Often what happens is the impeller breaks on the motor shaft and doesn't spin, therefore doesn't pump water.

There is a pressure sensor which indicates the lack of pressure and shuts the machine down with the E1 error being displayed.

The lack of pressure can also be from a water leak (as the owners manual suggests) also a controller PCB fault may produce an E1 error, however, the pump problem is extremely common.

Unfortunately, I have had 5 pumps die in 4 years and my dishwasher is only used about 4 times a week.

Maybe the blockage is somewhere else. How about removing all the trays from the dishwasher, in other words, empty it from all racks and dishes and try it again

This is a heater error. The cause is either a bad heating element or bad thermistor (the thermistor is part of the heater assembly). The heater assembly will need to be replaced.

SOURCE: I have a LG Diswasher LD 2050 with a trouble Code

The most common problem on an LG dishwasher when error code E1 is reported but there is no actual leak found is the problem of a natural syphon being created by improper installation of the dishwasher. Pretty easy to fix:  Either add an Air Gap valve (available at any hardware store for almost free) or follow the drain hose from the dishwasher to the drain. Raise the hose and attach the hose to the up onto the bottom of the countertop. Adding that "rise" eliminates the possibility for the syphon effect to drain the dishwasher before the drain cycle begins.
If the hose ever fall back down, the problem will return immediately.  Adding the Air Gap valve is harder but is far more permanent (and complies with construction codes that really should not be ignored.)

Noisey dishwasher. LG model LD-1204M1. Wasn't this noises when new.


It's hard to tell in the video but what kind of noise is it? Do it sound like it's out of level? I would reach your hand under the dishwasher and screw or unscrew the "feet" to keep it from wobbling. Otherwise, if it's the machine itself, not sure IF you can do anything.

Displays E1 code. water is on


Hi there Dolly, error code E1 relates to water leaking. Its the code the machine displays when the flood switch in the bottom of the machine activates. The flood switch activates when the bottom of the machine gets filled with water from a leak. I surgest you have a look underneth the machine for signs of water. I hope this helps regards Gary.

LG dishwasher LD-2120WHU I get the


This happens to my LG dishwasher every 6 months or so. It also makes a groaning sound as if the system is starved for water. The resolve the problem by removing the dishwasher and laying it over on it's right side. I then remove the two plastic assemblies that are on the left side and I remove them from the dishwasher (you will need a vice grips to remove the hose clamps from behind them, you will also need to remove the round circular water intake plastic disk that is on the inside of your dishwasher on the left hand side right in the middle of the left wall) and clean them. Once the water can run freely through these plastic parts you will get a good water flow and you should be fine. Until you have time to do this I recommend putting a few quarts of hot water into your dishwasher once you start to hear the groaning problem. This solution should be very easy for anyone who is comfortable doing their own oil change. Oh, and turn off the power supply first.
