We got and IE error after having the dishwasher for 3 years. IE is stressed motor error. Luckily my father is an electrician and we had LG send him a free control board (since that was still under warranty). We just replaced the control board and so far so good! So, don't waste $ on a repair man, just order a new control board and install it and you should be good to go! Let's see how long it lasts before something else goes wrong since it is LG junk!

I think you may be getting IE code which relates to water inlet problems. Either the water pressure is low or the inlet valve may not be working properly.
Refer page 21 in the user manual which can be dowloaded from this site
The manual shows there are 3 possible causes of the alarm 1. water supply is not there 2. drain time is too high - possibly a blockage in the kitchen sink drain 3. the water overfill in the base.
Most likely the cause could be 2 or 3. If kitchen drain is clear then the reason could be a faulty overfill switch at base of dishwasher assuming there is no water collected at the base where the motor and pumps are located.
I have a Blanco BFD10X Dishwasher which had the same D06 error, being a Electrician i investigated the fault which Blanco report as motor over current. After testing the motor, i tested the motor Run capacitor and found it to be faulty, these capacitors are common to failure and will cause the pump to draw more current than usual.
A genuine replacement 2.5uf capacitor was quoted at $120.00, however i purchased a equivalent from RS online for $14.30 + delivery. RS P/N 769-4267
Dishwasher working fine again.
this error (004) means that there is an overflow....To solve it do this:
1) Disconnect the power to the dishwasher
2) Remove the left cover (to do it remove all the screws..2 are located under the top and 3 behind the front lower cover)
3) Dry very well the bottom plates where is the motor and the electrics wires.
4) The overflow switch is a floating contact, so check that there is no water under it. (You can check it pushing gently the contact).
Before reinstall the cover check that the dishwasher is working fine!
IF YES.....WELL DONE MATE YOU SAVED YOUR MONEY!
1-Check if the water Inlet Hose is kinked.
2-The Water Pressure is very low.
(below 10 psi)?
3-Inlet Valve is OK?
The filter of Inlet Valve is clogged
by water filter?.

Hi there, If you are getting a "water inlet" error "IE" I found out thru trial and error that my inlet valve(s) were messed up. On my particular machine you can put the machine in trouble-shooting mode by pressing the "Spin Speed" and the "Soil Levels" at the same time and press the "Power" button while doing that. Then advance thru all the functions by pressing the "Start button" 1 time; Tumbles clockwise, 2 times Low level spin, 3 times; High speed spin, 4 times Inlet valve for prewash, 5 times; Inlet valve for main wash, 6 times, Inlet valve for Hot water, 7 times: Inlet valve for softner, 8 times; inlet valve for bleach, 9 times; tumble counter-clockwise, 10 times; turns Heater on (if equipped) 11 times; circulation pump, 12 times; drain pump, 13 times; power off and unlocks the door
ok if that's the correct code then it will likely be a communication problem between the motor and control panel ie loose wire broken wire resistance on the touch pad control ribbon which can be cleaned with a pencil eraser by the way or something along those lines the control just thinks the motor is bad because it cant communicate with it maybe
