LG 3 in 1 Dishwasher model LD2131SH showing E1, leaks water
The dishwasher started leaking water and shortly afterwards showed the E1 error.
After receiving the E1 error, I checked the inlet filter and it is clean. No bends in the inlet pipe either and I have good water pressure.
I then unplugged the dishwasher for a couple of hours, and then switched it on again.
It does not come up with the E1 error anymore, but leaks a lot of water now (within 5 minutes). When I open the device, the whole floor section is flooded with water. I cleaned the floor section filters as well, to no avail..same problem.

LG Dishwasher Displaying Fault Code E1
LEAKAGE ERROR // Excessive pump motor RPM due to water leakage
The manufacturer has assigned this error or fault code to indicate that when the drain pump is running it is not experiencing the back pressure it expects. This is usually an indication that there is a water leak in the drain system. Check all hoses and connections. Check under the dishwasher for any major leak. If all checks out, be certain there is a proper loop in the drain hose to prevent siphoning. Finally, if the problem persists, the drain pump itself might be defective. LG Dishwasher Displaying Fault Code E1
The E1 you are seeing means Water
Level in Drum lowering, this means there is a leak on one of the pipes.
More likely it is the Circulation Pump, which is responsible for
pushing the water to the Spray arms.
It will have to be replaced,
as it is a common spare that has to be replaced on L.G Dishwashers
(lifetime expectancy: 12 - 18 Months) - Not very expensive.
is about 20%-25% the price of a new Dishwasher. The Circulation pump is
fitted to the sump. Part Number: 5859DD9001A or 5859ED1001A (Depending
which one is in stock)

Hi, the "E1" error code means the dishwasher has developed a leak. Meaning your outlet hose is too low or too far down the drain, it is losing water while it is washing making it think there is a leak...
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.
Please check at both ends of the drain hose and confirm that you do nit have a leak. Also, please confirm that water is not leaking directly under the dishwasher.
If you are certain that you do not have a real leak, check the impeller (under the mesh filter in the sump area beneath the lower dish rack) is not damaged and is firmly in place.
The E1 error code is a Leakage Error, detected by the motor spinning faster than it should if the unit is filled with water.
Please report back with what you find. Good Luck!
