Question about LG 24 in. LDS 5811 Built-in Dishwasher
The LE error on the LG dishwasher means that the dishwasher believes there is a leak because the level of the water is decreasing between the time the wash or rinse cycle begins (with the proper amount of water) and before the cycle ends and the water is pumped out.
After you have ruled out a real leak (check closely underneath) then here is the next step. 99% of the problem with LE is caused by the drain hose not having a high point between where it connects at the dishwasher and the drain.
The fastest (but not best) way to fix this is create a loop in the drain hose raised high up underneath the counter top. Attach it so it will not fall back. The cause of the "leak" is the natural siphon effect that can develop when the drain hose has not high point. (exactly like the siphon tube you may have created in science class.)
Please report back what you find, OK?
