Question about LG 24 in. LD-12BW5 Free-standing Dishwasher
HI We are getting a E1 error on our dishwasher. The owners manual says that it is a water leakage in hose connections. We have checked and cleaned all the hoses and filters. Any ideas
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.

E1 is a leakage error in your LG dishwasher; it is usually
displayed either due to a clogged drain or due to water leakage in hose
connections. If the drain pump assembly is not clogged then check the motor
water seal leakage of sump assembly and also check the impeller of washing
pump, if it is worn then replace the impeller. You can also make sure that the
height of drain hose is not over 20". Hope this helps...please post back for
