LE stands for "Locked Motor". It means the main pump motor is bad.

SOURCE: water standing in Dishwasher

Hello buzzy220,
If you have water remaining in the bottom of your dishwasher then I would check the following:

  1. The drain filter screen is free from food byproducts that might limit drainage.
  2. The drain line exiting the dishwasher itself.. is it kinked or clogged?
  3. If your drain line is plumbed into a garbage disposal side entry, is that clogged or your house drain clogged?
  4. Is your dishwasher pump contaminated with sediment or anything that would limit its ability to pump?
  5. Are the water lines that come into or out of the pump blocked, damaged or restricting water flow?
Those are the main reasons areas of concern to investigate.. BTW, your drain line exitting the dishwasher should be routed up high and down into your sink drain system or thru the garbage disposal tap so that you have an air gap as 20YRSEXP was inquiring about..

You can run a simple test to verify all this..
Detach your drain hose from the house drain system ( from the garbage disposer or sink drain.. then route that into a rubber barrel ( be sure to keep part of the house up around the height of the countertop when you do this.. )... You should see a fairly robust flow of drain water into it when the system functions properly.. I would encourage you to run this test with no dishes inside it,.. This test will tell you if the restriction is in the dishwasher or house drain side..
Hope this helps you..
Regards,
Rick

The emptying valve is probably partially blocked with a piece of debris or bone. It can be cleared manually usually if you can get at it with a pair of needle nose pliers or tweezers.

SOURCE: I'm getting an error code LE on the control panel

This is a drainage issue. check the following to address this issue.

1. Air gap / Drain hoses
If there is an air gap (located in the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the top cap and see if there is anything blocking inside. Note: If there is no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.

If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher.

Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.

2. Broken belt
Some dishwasher models use a belt to drive the pump. Replace the belt if found broken.

Note: Sometimes the belt would just come off the pump. Even though it might not be broken, it is recommended that you replace the belt, because it is probably too stretched out.

3. Pump
Some models have two impellers inside the pump - one, wash impeller, takes care of the wash cycles, the other, drain impeller, drains the water out. If the drain impeller is broken (broken blades, shaft), the dishwasher would not drain. Replace any broken pump components.

4. Drain solenoid
Some models (for example most GE dishwashers) use a drain solenoid to drain water out. Sometimes the solenoid gets stuck, preventing the water from draining out. Try to free up the solenoid. If unsuccessful, you might have to replace the pump assembly.

5. Motor
If the motor is stuck, it is sometimes possible to free it up by manually spinning the motor.

Replace the motor if defective.

6. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

SOURCE: Water didn't drain, left in bottom of washer tub

I had similar problem and it ended up being a clog at the point where the drain hose meets the garbage disposal. I had to unhook the hose and clean out the food that had accumulated (horrible smell). You may have to stick a screwdriver into the garbage disposal hole where the hose fits and clean the food out there also. Then put the hose into a bucket and run a few cycles to ensure the hose is free.

I have a 3 year old Samsung DMT800RFS dishwasher. It had a 9E error, so we changed the part on the side and replaced the interior gasket. Now we get a oE error and I can not enter Service Mode to re


I don't know if this is the same. However, on my washing machine I had to clear out the water trap at the bottom of the machine. I know I have to clean it out every 6 months to be on the safe side. This also helps the machine to not smell like old stagnate water and helps your clothing smell fresher with not having that water build up and sit. I found all strange things in all kinds of water overflow tubs.

HOW TO FIX LE ERROR CODE ON SAMSUNG DISHWASHER DMR78AHS


An LE error code on your dishwasher stands for "LEaking."

There is, what I call, a drip pan on the bottom that the water is dripping into. Remove your dishwasher and take off the lower the side panels to get a look inside the drip pan. If you have water in there, try to find out where it's coming from.

If there are no signs of water, tip the dishwasher over on its side and remove the plastic panel on the bottom of the dishwasher. Once removed, you can disconnect the connector to the leak sensor (it's mounted upside-down, with 4 wires coming out of it. If I remember right, the wires are blue and red).

Flip the dishwasher back upright and plug it in and see if your LE error code pops back on. If it pops back on, then you have a bad board. If it doesn't, then you either have a leak, or the "fangs" on the leak detector are shorting out, somehow.

Good luck!

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!

LG LE Error


The broken wire would be where the wires pass from the bottom of the door into the dishwasher body. A more likely cause may be a motor problem. A number of main motors have had problems with the magnets coming loose or breaking up, resulting in the LE code. You can remove the phillips head screws around the sump cover to gain assess to the impeller, which is attached to the end of the motor shaft. (via a LEFT HAND THREAD screw.) Turn the impeller by hand and listed for noise. Shaft should turn freely, smoothly, and quietly. If it does not, remove the impeller and the cutter bar, remove dishwasher from cabinet, lay it on it's side, and remove four phillips mounting screws from motor and wiring. There is a two year warranty on all parts.

LE light on...not filling with water.


ACCORDING TO SERVICE MANUAL, THE "L.E." ERROR CODE SUGGESTS A LOCKED ROTOR ON THE WASH MOTOR. CHECK THE WASH IMPELLER FOR A FOREIGN OBJECT. IF IT SPINS FREELY, CHECK THE WIRING TO THE WASH MOTOR FOR LOOSE CONNECTION.
THE L.G.HAS HAD A HISTORY OF MOTOR PROBLEMS.

YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO CANCEL THE PROGRAM AND DRAIN OUT THE WATER.
