Question about LG 24 in. LDS 5811 Built-in Dishwasher
Same problem as mine and unforutunety fix was a replacement motor which drives pump. Bearings were shot in motor. Lots of people have this problem. If you are good at repair you can buy motor on ebay for $60. Impeller will have to be removed inside unit but motor is on bottom. Lots of screws to get to impeller and gaskets will fall out of place. Motor is easy to remove but gaskets are a challenge to get back after replacement. It will fix the problem for at least a while but It is unclear if the seal in the pump has a design problem and threfore allows water gets to the motor. The bearings fail but I do not know why. Bet LG knows but they are not talking. I hope but get no guidance from LG that the replacement of the motor is a permanate fix. Good luck to us all.

The 'LE' error message indicates the control
board has detected that the motor is either not turning, or has locked up for
some reason. Monitoring the motor is the job of the hall effect sensor board
which constantly determines the direction and speed of the motor and feeds that
information back to the control board. If there is a problem between what the
motor should be doing and what the hall effect sensor says the motor is doing,
the 'LE' will be displayed and the cycle will be stopped.
This error can sometimes present because of a miscommunication between the control panel and the wash motor. In this instance, the washer simply needs to be reset.
Step 1: Unplug the washing machine.
Step 2: While the washer remains unplugged,
press and hold the [Start/Pause] button on the front panel for 5 seconds.
Step 3: Plug the unit back in, and run a rinse and spin cycle to test if the LE code is cleared.
Please get back to us if you have further
query or else please accept the solution.
