Just solved a LE error code on my dishwasher,,,,it was a broken wire caused from the black sound deadening material LG uses...apparently when the dishwasher heats up the black stuff becomes soft...wires become imbedded then when it cools and you open the door it breaks wires...easy solution...soldered wire, put a thin piece of plastic to where the wires couldnt get imbedded , put back together and works great

My dishwasher starts, then "LE"


The LE error code indicates a motor error. This can be caused by a foreign object that is jammed in the impeller, a failed pump motor or a bad electronic control board.

Refer to page 26 on this link: Dishwasher/LDS5811_Service_Manual.pdf

I would check your warranty and see how long the motor has a warrany.

I get an LE error message on my LG Dishwasher. I replaced the pump. Still get the LE error. Replaced the main control. Still get the LE. No blockage in the pump. What now?


When you receive the LE error code, unplug the machine for approximately 15 - 20 minutes. This will reset the microprocessor.

Oversudsing is the main cause of LE error codes. Using non-HE detergents or too much detergent will cause stress on the motor. Oversudsing can also cause leaking and odor.

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.

A couple of notes about this - there are at least three motors on this unit - the main pump, the drain pump, and the 'vario motor' which appears to control the direction of water flow through the sprayers. The main pump is the one likely to go bad. Another cause of the LE code is broken wires in the door. The wires in the door get stuck in the black sound insulation and eventually break. Sometimes, this causes the LE error code. Check the wires in the door first. They are located behind the large front panel. It's easily removed by undoing 6 screws.

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.

Le code on ldf6810bb lg dishwasher


The LE error code can mean that the impeller is damaged or there is some debris blocking the the sump area underneath the filter or the wash motor has failed. In that order.
Remove the spray arm and filter (9 phillips screws) - inspect impeller for damage, with flashlight, look everywhere for debris (watch out for broken glass!) Reassemble and test.
If problems continue, schedule as service call focused on the wash pump/motor.
Good Luck!

Im getting error code "LE" on my lg dishwasher


While LE is the LG error code for "Motor Error": The Motor is working abnormally, it does not always mean that the motor itself has failed.
As you replaced the pump motor, are you certain that the Impeller of Washing Pump is turning freely? Next, is the Blade spinning freely?
If everything above is obviously not locked, the next item is the controller board. (PCB)
Hope that helps. Please report back with your findings! Good Luck.

Model No- LD-12AW2 LE Error showing what does this mean


LE error code means that there is a problem with the motor.  One thing to check is to remove the front door panel and check the wiring harness to see if there are any broken wires.  If there is, repair the wire connections and see if the dishwasher returns to normal.  If not, then the motor assembly will need to be replaced.
