What indication are you getting on the display? sounds like the water inlet sensor is defective. one needs to watch carefully from the start of the cycle to when the problem begins to be able to make a diagnosis.

Most likely the water temperature is not reached as required and the dishwasher times out and stops without draining the water. It is likely the inlet water temperature is not adequate or if only using cold water the thermistor or the water heater are faulty.
Look for part M083 in the diagrams at the back of the service manual attached. you can also perform some diagnostics as shown in there but be very careful about the sequence otherwise you may flood or damage the dishwasher components.
Hi Jeff - am not too savvy with LG - am a Electrolux/Miele serviceman is it possible to gain access to the drain pump from inside the unit? I think it does sound like there is a restriction somewhere perhaps the pumps not running freely.
To check you pour water inside , take the drain hose , operate machine to see how good the flow of the drain is, rule of thumb if you cover the outlet no flow then the problem.
code IE on LG dishwasher means Inlet error. This error comes up when the Water
Supply Tap is closed or Water Supply is shut off. If water supply is turned on
then make sure that the Inlet Hose is not kinked and water Pressure is not low
(should be above 10 psi). Next thing to check for is Water Inlet Valve, measure
the electric resistance of Inlet Valve. (950-1300 ohms) Make sure the filter of
Inlet Valve is not clogged.
Hope this helps... Please post back
for further assistance.

Dishwasher not draining properly or not draining at all issues can arise due
to different reasons. Usually, these issues are related to kinked hoses,
knocked out disposer unit (if connected with the dishwasher drain hose) &
clogged drain pump & filter.
Also note that dishwashers do not
drain completely after a finished cycle and this is normal. Dishwashers are
designed to leave some water in the unit to ensure that the heating element
doesn’t overheat. If you suddenly begin to experience a large amount of water
being retained in your dishwasher, you have a problem. Some of the most common
reasons include that the drain hose isn’t working properly, the drain pump
isn’t working correctly, or possibly there is a plumbing problem in your home’s
First check whether the drain is
not clogged or blocked and the line is not kinked. Check all the hoses for
blockages & also clean the air gap. Has the disposer been replaced
recently? If so, chances are the knockout is still in place. Simply remove the
drain hose from the disposer, and knock out the plug. If the disposer has not
been replaced, try removing the drain hose from the disposer and use a wet-dry
vacuum (prepared for water, of course) to **** any water (and hopefully anything
else) from the drain line. Then reconnect the hose, and test the unit. If you
have checked the air gap and the drain hose and can’t locate the problem, then
it is an issue with the drain pump of the dishwasher.

Hi there, The most common cause of an OE error code on a modern LG dishwasher is: 1. Blocked drain hose 2. Obstruction in the sump area (beneath the filter, which needs to be removed to check for onstruction) 3. Failing drain motor.
else you need to REPLACE THE PCB POWER CONTROL BOARD

On an LG LD-14AW1, three is a float sensor on the left hand side of the dishwasher, behing the water outlet port.
It is the sensor that tells the dishwasher to stop filling just before the wash or rinse cycle begins.
A service call is needed or post back here is you want help replacing it.
If you are still having problems with your LG dishwasher, turn off the hot water supply to the dishwasher and remove the hot water inlet pipe (remove the lower, front panel (toe kick plate) )
Check the screen/filter at the water inlet on the dishwasher.
Reconnect the pipe and turn the hot water supply back on.
Test out and enjoy!
Hi, had the same problem on a LG LD 12aw5. (No water entering). Check the inlet solonoid. There should be 220V over the solonoid. I replaced the solonoid, at first, just to have the same problem. The problem was a bit more serious, the Triac driving the solonoid burnt out, and the solder on the mainboard keeping the transformer were shot to. I replaced the Triac, soldered the Transformer - and wolla - working.
If water enters - but you sill get the IE error it could be the float(checks the water level). This device tells the machine when there is enough water. If this is stuck, the machine will think no water is entering.
