LG Dishwasher LDS5811ST does not drain last rinse out. LE code displayed. Did the shutoff of power. Most say PCB assembly, some asy control board - ?


The LE error or fault code indicates that the washer motor is either overheating or has lost connection to the motor control circuit board. Turn off the machine for 30 minutes to let the motor cool down. Then, restart the washer. If the code comes back immediately the motor is not likely to be at fault and so you should check the wiring from the motor to the motor control board. Also, check the wiring and condition of the rotor position sensor, also called a HALL sensor. If the code doesn't come back on immediately, but returns after the washer has run for a while, the motor stator may be defective

What can cause and lg dishwasher to not fill water and stop and show le code


Please try the plain VINEGAR in the bottom of your dishwasher. It cleans out the pipes. When you start the machine it automatically starts to drain whatever water has been left from previous cycle. When this cannot happen, due to blocked outlet pipe, it will not precede with the wash cycle. Adding the vinegar, leaving it a few hours, or overnight (hey, I left it for a week one of those times!), it is enough to liquify any heavy fats in that pipe...enough to start the cycle and the normal draining gets reinstated.Hope this helps you, it is such a pain to go & choose another dishwasher to fit into the space allowed & that has all the functions you need. This 'fix' cures all my dishwasher blues! Havagreatday!

We have an lg dishwasher LDS5811ST and there is an error code. LE or an or 2 capital E's with top missing off of the first E. We tried turning the breaker off for 20 minutes and there is water going into...


Kevin,

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?

LG dishwasher model lds5811st error LE


per instructions in other's posts, I removed door panel, but no wires broken, so called LG and local authorized LG repair and they tell me motor sub-assembly needs replacement, cost $160 for parts, $200 for labor, which is making a new dishwasher look attractive.
