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. I 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 think the origin of the problem might be too much food on the plates and too strong of a dishwasher gel detergent so the food is turned into gunk which coats the channels of the plastic assemblies.

    MINE IS A LG 3850DD3006A AND YES THE GARBAGE DISPOSER GETS STRAWS AND JUNK IN IT. OR THE SCREEN ON THE TOP IS COVERED WITH MACARONI AND CHEESE. OR TWICE IN 4 YEARS THE MOTOR RING SPLIT AND THE MOTOR STARTED TO GRIND THAT RING TILL IT STOPPED ALLTOGETHER.
    WHAT A PEACE OF JUNK!!
    I ADMIT THE STRAWS ARE THE USERS FALT!

    Didn't work for me. Maybe e1 error means more than 1 thing. I had the same problem with groaning pump but after following instructions and cleaning it out my problem isn't fixed :(

    My LG dishwasher when I turn it on it drains the water, then it fills it up with water, about 1 min. later gives me the code E1 and drains the water again...


    LG Dishwasher Displaying Fault Code E1 LDF7810BB/01 LEAKAGE ERROR // Excessive pump motor RPM due to water leakage
    The manufacturer has assigned this error or fault code to indicate that when the drain pump is running it is not experiencing the back pressure it expects. This is usually an indication that there is a water leak in the drain system. Check all hoses and connections. Check under the dishwasher for any major leak. If all checks out, be certain there is a proper loop in the drain hose to prevent siphoning. Finally, if the problem persists, the drain pump itself might be defective.

    I have a LG dishwasher, model LDF7920ST, it has been displaying error E1 , what does this mean


    E1 means leakage error. You need to check around the unit, and under the sink where the drain hose connects plumbing underneath.

    It's possible the dishwasher may need to be uninstalled and checked for leaks. Please post back.

    Lg dishwasher lds 5811st E1 error code


    Hi Chaz,

    The impeller breaks on the motor shaft. The motor still turns, but the impeller doesn't, so it doesn't pump water. Because the machine senses there is no water pressure from the pump, it shuts down & displays E1 (it thinks there's a water leak, due to no pressure)
    Unfortunately the motor/impeller is only available as a complete assembly

    Hope this helps
