SOURCE: ERROR CODE "LE " ON LG DISWASHER

You should check for that the pump motor turn freely. You will have to remove the sump cover in the bottom of the dishwasher and manually turn the pump impeller. (note: screw holding the impeller on the motor shaft is a left hand thread) There may be an object there or at the cutting blade a bit lower down that is preventing the motor from turning. Motor should turn easily, smoothly, and quietly. There have been issues with magnets in the motor windings cracking, resulting in hard to turn or noisy motors. Also, models produced with serial numbers 501KW_____ to 702KW_____ may have wiring which has become embedded in the door insulation material, softening the wiring insulation, and causing a short to the motor. The fix for that is to replace the wiring harness and outer door liner with one with a different type of insulation. (not much fun to do)

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!

What does the LE flashing mean? Water won't drain out of washer.


LE means that the motor sensor has failed and needs a technician to come out and repair the unit. To remove the water, turn on the unit, press the spin speed button once and press start. It will drain the water out and spin the drum.

LE code on lg washmachine


The LE error code means that you have a motor problem.  The high pitched noise means that the motor sensor has failed and needs to be replaced.  You will need to call a qualified LG technician to replace the sensor.

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