Error code LE comes up after 2 min. when trying to run the dishwasher. We had the motor replaced when dishwasher was 1 year old then again a year later. It has been less than a year and it is doing the same thing.

I had the same problem. It was caused by 1 or more wires in the door that have cracked and split apart. I cut the bad sections out and reconnected the wires and it works now. The LG's are known to do this. LG said they would send all new wire harness but it would cost $200 to have a tech put it in. LG would not cover the labor.

If your LG dishwasher is connected to the drain (or disposal) directly and not through an Air Gap, your problem may be that the drain hose does not have a "high point" in the line and the water is being naturally siphoned from the dishwasher into the drain.

If the above is true, either install an air gap (see hardware store) or attach the drain hose high to the counter top (bottom) so there is a permanent high point.

Please report back what you find, OK?

LG dishwasher model LDF6920WW 1 1/2 years old approximately. Suddenly stops a minute or so into cycle (it drains remaining water and fills with new water then get LE error). When I open the door at the...


The manufacturer has assigned this error or fault code to indicate a problem with the water circulation pump motor. Turn the appliance off for 30 minutes to allow it to cool. Then, restart the cycle. If the error code returns check the wiring to the pump motor. Also, if the wash impeller is broken this error can appear. If the impeller and wire harness check out, and the code keeps returning, you will probably need to replace the pump and motor assembly.

Dishwashing cycle starts for about 3 minutes then flashing LE light comes on and the machine stops. Why?


Display Condition LE = Motor Error

Possible Cause For Error Occurrence:

Wiring connection is OK?
The Impeller of Washing Pump is locked.
The rotor of Washing Motor is locked.
The Blade is locked.


Remedy:

Check the wiring connection.
Replace the cause of restriction.
Replace the Washing Motor.
Replace the PCB.

Try the following steps:

Unplug the washing machine if you see an LE error on the two-digit display electronic readout. This error indicates a miscommunication between the control panel and wash motor.

Press and hold the "Start/Pause" button on the front panel for five seconds.

Plug the LG dishwasher back in.

Run a cycle. The LE code will clear.

LE error code


No recalls at this point. the repair man is correct. the circulation motor is damaged.

You should know that, this model has many issues that we deal with on this site that concern this (LE) trouble code. The circulation motors are not reliable in this model.

LE light on...not filling with water.


ACCORDING TO SERVICE MANUAL, THE "L.E." ERROR CODE SUGGESTS A LOCKED ROTOR ON THE WASH MOTOR. CHECK THE WASH IMPELLER FOR A FOREIGN OBJECT. IF IT SPINS FREELY, CHECK THE WIRING TO THE WASH MOTOR FOR LOOSE CONNECTION.
THE L.G.HAS HAD A HISTORY OF MOTOR PROBLEMS.

YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO CANCEL THE PROGRAM AND DRAIN OUT THE WATER.
