This is very common problem with LG dishwashers. The LE error code (locked engine) is not allways indicative of a motor problem.

Simply unscrew the front door panel from the retaining screws on the inside of the perimiter of the door. Once the screws are removed pull down and out to remove the door panel. Remove the sound insulating material and you will see several wires routed from the contol panel the length of the door to underneath the unit. Inspect the wires thouroghly. Near the bottom is where the pinching can take place. There are two gray wires and if you have been getting the "LE" error code, one of those wires is most likely broken or pinched. Splice, reconnect, solder or tape and you're back in buisiness!

Door on diswahser not shut completely during cycle. water leaked out onto floor. now flashing LE and cannot power off or on.


Good picture! The LE message indicates a leak, but besides leaking on your floor, apparently some water has gotten into the base and triggered the water-leak sensor. Basically, that water must all be sopped out dried out, then the message will go away by itself. You will probably have to pull the dishwasher out to be able to get to the water in the base.

A screw fell inside the tub I took the bottom sreen apart it was uder the base were the impeller is, took that apart, put everthing back together and went to start the dishwasher up and the LE code...


try this. I have a similar problem and now have the LE code flashing. I saw this advice and am going to try the fix now.

You are barking up the wrong tree. Here is the real fix for the LE problem.First disconnect all power ( power supply, circuit breaker, wiring etc) to the machine. Disconnect all tubing to the machine ( drainage pipe and braided hose feed) Then you need to take out the dishwasher, turn it over and then remove the large white sensor tray that will expose the leakage sensor held on by 2 screws. Remove the screws and dry up the sensor tips (4) with a dry towel and dry up the tray all around as well. Replace the tray and re connect all tubing and power. You're problem should be solved and you just saved yourself a pile of money in service repair bill. M.D.

Dishwashing cycle starts for about 3 minutes then flashing LE light comes on and the machine stops. Why?


Display Condition LE = Motor Error

Possible Cause For Error Occurrence:

Wiring connection is OK?
The Impeller of Washing Pump is locked.
The rotor of Washing Motor is locked.
The Blade is locked.


Remedy:

Check the wiring connection.
Replace the cause of restriction.
Replace the Washing Motor.
Replace the PCB.

Try the following steps:

Unplug the washing machine if you see an LE error on the two-digit display electronic readout. This error indicates a miscommunication between the control panel and wash motor.

Press and hold the "Start/Pause" button on the front panel for five seconds.

Plug the LG dishwasher back in.

Run a cycle. The LE code will clear.

Dishwasher showwing LE error message


Hi Tanja

LE is motor error.

Empty water from inside the machine and try tripping the circuit breaker for a couple of minutes.

If that does no clear the error , then one of the following faults may have ocurred:

Wiring connection broken either bad connector on pump side or on timer control side, or faulty wiring harness.
The hose connected to impeller, or the impeller itself is blocked.
Motor or pump locked.
Faulty timer board.

LE trouble code


The LE error code can be an indication of several different issues. The most common cause is over-sudsing in the machine. Many times owners experiencing the LE error code are using regular detergent. It is recommended to use a high efficiency or low sudsing detergent. Overloading the wash with too much laundry may also cause the LE error code. Lastly, a breakdown in the signal between the microprocessor and the motor may cause the error code. This can occur if there is a loose wire, dislodged ball sensor, or if the shipping bolts are removed prior to situating the washer. Good luck!
