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.

I have a LG Diswasher LD 2050 with a trouble Code E1. The manual says "Water leakage in hose connection" "water is leak by damage" Ihave check and everything is Okay. It let water in and when it start...


The most common problem on an LG dishwasher when error code E1 is reported but there is no actual leak found is the problem of a natural syphon being created by improper installation of the dishwasher. Pretty easy to fix:  Either add an Air Gap valve (available at any hardware store for almost free) or follow the drain hose from the dishwasher to the drain. Raise the hose and attach the hose to the up onto the bottom of the countertop. Adding that "rise" eliminates the possibility for the syphon effect to drain the dishwasher before the drain cycle begins.
If the hose ever fall back down, the problem will return immediately.  Adding the Air Gap valve is harder but is far more permanent (and complies with construction codes that really should not be ignored.)

LG LD-A2T2 Dishwasher returns Error code E1


EI is an error to do with your drain. Check your drain hook up. You should have a loop out side the unit, it should be a minimum 40in in height, or put in a air break. What I believe is happening is your unit is siphoning out. Fix this and you will be able to stop washing the dishes by hand.

Lg dishwasher model LD - 14AT2


E1 is usually a very common fault of the wash motor not working.

The impeller breaks away from the motor shaft and doesn't spin, therefore, it doesn't pump water.

There is a sensor that activates with low pump pressure, which shuts down the machine and displays the error, E1.

The only other causes (that I'm aware of) are leaking water supply hoses, or pump blockage, but the motor fault is by far the most common.

Hope this helps.

E1 error on LG - LD-4120M


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 Error Code


the only parts that usually leak are the motor shaft seal or the fill valve connector. The fill valve seal is usually lower than the motor, try putting in a small amount of water manually and increasing the level until the leak shows up. The device that is then covered in water is the leaker

agreed all LG d/w with E1 is the wash motor faulty.

EI error code.


e1 on any LG d/w means the water pressure is insufficient due to the wash motor being faulty and /or the capacitor connected to it.

take care.
