    No number with LE code. This is a dishwasher, not a clothes washer. We bought this unit in 2006, and have always used Cascade dishwashing powder. Tried turning off circuit breaker for 10 minutes on error message (hard wired, not plugged in), still got same message afterward. Called the 800 number yesterday, was told the nearest technician is 65 miles away. Hence my trying FixYa.

    None of the suggestions worked

    The dishwasher has always been very quiet, and still is. It draws water in and actually went through most of the cycle using 'Quick Wash' before a series of bells followed by the LE error message. Under 'Normal Wash' it only goes for about 4 minutes before the bells and LE error message. In both cases, it leaves water in the dishwasher.

    This problem occurred for the 1st time on Sunday, 8/3/08. Worked fine prior to that.

    Try unplugging the machine for ten minutes, sometimes this can clear the error message.

    "LE error code can be an indication of several different issues.



    The most common cause is over-sudsing in the machine. Many times owners

    experiencing the LE error code are using regular detergent. It is recommended to

    use a high efficiency or low sudsing detergent. Many of the leading detergent

    manufacturers have a high-efficiency (HE) selection. The HE detergents are

    designed for lower suds levels and enhanced cleaning performance in

    front-loading washers.



    Overloading the wash with too much laundry may also cause the LE error code. A

    good rule is to load the washer until the clothes in the drum are no more than

    three-fourths of the way up the window of the door. This will allow them

    sufficient room for tumbling. The clothing having sufficient room to tumble is

    more important than either the weight or the number of items in the washer. It

    is the tumbling action that provides the washing effect.



    Lastly, a breakdown in the signal between the microprocessor and the motor may

    cause the error code. This can occur if there is a loose wire, dislodged ball

    sensor, or if the shipping bolts are removed prior to situating the washer. . In

    this case, a servicer would need to take a look at the unit. In this case, you

    will need a service center to look at your unit. For service assistance, please

    visit our website at us.lgservice.com Click on "Service Center". Enter your

    zipcode and product type. Click search.



    In the event that you cannot find a service center, please call 1-800-243-0000

    for assistance. There, an agent will be able to provide you with an Authorized

    LG Service Center in your area."

    If nothing worked it means there is something wrong with the control board inside your appliance, in this case replace control board or call 1-800-243-0000 for repair assistance.

LG Dishwasher LDS5811ST does not drain last rinse out. LE code displayed. Did the shutoff of power. Most say PCB assembly, some asy control board - ?


The LE error or fault code indicates that the washer motor is either overheating or has lost connection to the motor control circuit board. Turn off the machine for 30 minutes to let the motor cool down. Then, restart the washer. If the code comes back immediately the motor is not likely to be at fault and so you should check the wiring from the motor to the motor control board. Also, check the wiring and condition of the rotor position sensor, also called a HALL sensor. If the code doesn't come back on immediately, but returns after the washer has run for a while, the motor stator may be defective

Lg dishwasher showing error code LE how do I fix it already checked for loose wires


Hi,

Try - Disconnect the Power Supply. Wait for 30 Minutes. Again Turn ON the Dishwasher. Is that Fixed the Problem.

If not, i am afraid friend, you need to replace the Wash Motor.

LE usually Refers to Motor Locked Up. Replace Wash Motor.

I have seen many of the Dishwasher gone Bad within Few Months.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Try checking the wiring in the door for breaks and repair by cutting and splicing with electrical tape. This site has the Service Manual: http://136.166.4.200/contents/Dishwasher/LDS5811/LDS5811_Service_Manual.pdf

Le code


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)
In your case I suspect the motor first.
