Check the water inlet filters for condition, clean if necessary. It sounds like the machine is not taking on the correct amount of water. Check also the continuity of the water inlet valve coil, replace if the coil shows no OHM reading. The 1E error code is for water inlet problem.

Testimonial: "I checked The Inlet and is fine. it takes on water and stop after a will of taking on water. after a Long pause when the next phase must start. it throws me a E1 and let the Water out again"

    If the machine does not fill within a certain time period, it will automatically drain the water. This is why you need to check the valves and also make sure that the drain hose is not lower than the supply hose.

SOURCE: Dishwasher states there is a water leak when visually there isn't

Assuming that you have checked under the dishwasher for a leak (through a faulty sump gasket):
Since there is not actual leak, check the following:
-Confirm that the height of Drain Hose connection (sink-Drain Hose) rises greater than 20′ _minimum_ as it travels to the drain connection.
-If that does not solve the problen, it is probably a worn/broken Impeller of the Washing Pump.
Unless you are mechanicly incliend, a service call is probably the way to do. If you need further steps, please reply. Otherwise, after you ahve used the advise, please accept this solution.

SOURCE: I have an LG dishwasher,

I've just solved the same problem on my 2120. It started when the pump motor bearing failed and continued after I'd replaced the bearing. According to my handbook the E1 fault is theoretically a water leak but practically it is that the pump is not delivering enough water. In this case the failed bearing had allowed the shaft to wobble about and damage either the rotor or the inside of the pump (it's sealed so you can't strip it). Solution was to replace the pump.

E1 display in diswasher


If you've checked everything, you will need to replace the impeller possibly.


Leakage error > Conditon: Excessive RPM of washing motor happened during wash cycle due to water leakage. Possible cause: Water leakage in hose connections,water is leaked by damages. The motor water seal leakage of sump assembly. The height of drain hose connection ( sink drain hose ) is not over 20". Impeller of the washing pump is worn away.

E 1 error


90% of the time you get an E1 error code is because the drain hose is not properly installed between the LG dishwasher and the drain. The hose should connect to an Air Gap valve (almost free at any hardware store) but in a pinch, raise the drain hose near the drain and attach the hose to the bottom of the counter top under the sink. Is should rise almost 30 inches between the dishwasher and the drain or the water WILL siphon out of the dishwasher as soon as the wash or rinse cycle begins (and take 5 minutes before the water gets low enough the cause the E1 error.
Good Luck!

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.
