SOURCE: E1 error on LG - LD-4120M
E1 is a common error in the LG Dishwasher range and is usually caused by the failure of the circulation pump and/or the impeller.
The motor and impeller are a complete unit.
Often what happens is the impeller breaks on the motor shaft and doesn't spin, therefore doesn't pump water.
There is a pressure sensor which indicates the lack of pressure and shuts the machine down with the E1 error being displayed.
The lack of pressure can also be from a water leak (as the owners manual suggests) also a controller PCB fault may produce an E1 error, however, the pump problem is extremely common.
Unfortunately, I have had 5 pumps die in 4 years and my dishwasher is only used about 4 times a week.

Maybe the blockage is somewhere else. How about removing all the trays from the dishwasher, in other words, empty it from all racks and dishes and try it again

Please check at both ends of the drain hose and confirm that you do nit have a leak. Also, please confirm that water is not leaking directly under the dishwasher.
If you are certain that you do not have a real leak, check the impeller (under the mesh filter in the sump area beneath the lower dish rack) is not damaged and is firmly in place.
The E1 error code is a Leakage Error, detected by the motor spinning faster than it should if the unit is filled with water.
Please report back with what you find. Good Luck!

Well done by resolving this problem. The other way to avoid the siphoning problem through the drain hose is adding an air gap valve/connector (available at any hardware store). You can use it even if you don't have a garbage disposal in your kitchen sink. That will assure that you have the proper height of the drain hose.
Hope this helps!
