SOURCE: ie problem on lg dishwasher
The IE is telling you it is not getting enough water. Could be your water pressure is low. Check to make sure the there is not a build up of grime, or calcium deposits in the water hose, and at the valve.
The other thing is if your unit is an older one, prior to mar 07, you may have broken wires in the door. Remove the door panel and look for any wires that are stuck in the insulation. The sensor wires are thin and gray in colour. Splice the wires and put some of the white insulation in between the wires and the door so it cannot happen again.
Broken wires can be hard to find if the break is not all the way through.

Take the main wash arm off and the sump cover below it. Remove the part you'll find under that to gain access to the cutter blade attached to the end of the motor shaft. Remove blade but note that this is a LEFT HAND SCREW. Now lay dishwasher on it's side and remove screws and electrical plug to motor. Reverse procedure to install new motor. It's not really very difficult.

Dishwashers do have a water heater element. In fact, it's the same heater that is used for hot dry, but you can switch it off for the drying cycle if you want. Dishwashers heat the water so it will be hot enough to properly clean the dishes. Sorry, you lose the bet.

Using the programs, how did you determine that the heater unit was defective. I tried, set to 36 (10 second heater unit). Do I feel for heat. I just assumed that was it and ordered a part, but it would be nice to be able to confirm.

SOURCE: LE error message
Well LE means locked motor, this seems to be a very common problem withe these dishwashers.
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.
Anyway the LE error code is not all-ways indicative of a motor problem. There are also strong chances of any lose connection (wire), so first you can simply unscrew the front door panel from the retaining screws on the inside of the perimeter 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 thoroughly. 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.......
