LE actually stands for "Lock (motor) error". The main pump motor is probably bad. It is able to drain because that is a different pump motor. If it was a problem with how the drain hose was run and it was draining out you would get a DE error "drain error".

LE error means level error (the d/w fills up but the water drain out at the same time somehow). I had a case once where the drain hose at the back of the d/w was resting on the floor to drain underneath the cust house. problem is like any drain hose it has to GO UP FIRST and then down to the ground otherwise the gravity will push the water out as the d/w fills up hence the LE error.

take care.

    The LE error code keeps flashing why?

    LE means level error. The water fill timer timed out before there was enough water in the machine to clean the clothes. Try this:
    1. Turn the hot and cold water supply taps, located at the end of the fill hoses, as far as they will go toward the "Open" position.
    2. Move the washing machine away from the wall, and examine the hot and cold water pipes for kinks, twists or other obstructions.
    3. Unscrew the fill hoses at the washing machine, and inspect the small plastic screens inside for signs of an obstruction.
    4. Check the water pressure in your home; a reading lower than 30 psi might cause the fill times to extend beyond the time the washing machine is programmed to wait. Slow flowing faucets and shower heads are a sign of low water pressure.
    5. Call for service.

    LE is a locked motor error. Not to worry as 95% of the time it is just a bad hall sensor (the motor position sensor). For your model the part number is 6501KW2002A.

    F3 error showing

    F3 means the Dishwasher thinks it's water temperature in the tub is over 80oC. So when the unit stops see how hot the water is. The unit has a temp sensor which is part of the element which maybe faulty, the element maybe faulty or the Motor controller module is faulty. I'd try the Motor Controller module first as replacing the element can be a tricky job if you haven't done one before. If you have a double dishdrawer you can swap over the Motor Controller modules (main computers in the front of each drawer) as the top and bottom are the same part, inturn you will prove 100% if this is the fault or not without buying a new controller.

    Dishwasher spray arms don't spin & spray water

    Could be a a couple different issues.. Not filling with enough water or food chopper broke or food chopper filter screen clogged.

    Check water level:
    Run the DW and wait for the main wash to start (water will fill. pause then complete fill) The water should be no more than 1/4 inch below the heating element. If not there..replace water inlet valve.

    Inspect food chopper:
    1. Remove lower spray arm and rear water supply tube to upper spray arm.
    2. Remove torx screws that secure the sump cover.
    3. Remove primary filter
    4. Remove food chopper cover to expose the chopper assembly. Inspect for breakage or blockage.
