Question about LG 24 in. LDS 5811ST Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher
LG MODEL LDS5811ST DISHWASHER WITH "LE" ERROR 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)

I had this exact problem. MN TECH is right on the problem. I had my motor replaced under warranty, but shortly after the problem(LE error) returned leading me to find the wiring problem in the door. I did not however replace the harness. I repaired the broken wire(s) as needed after freeing them from the tar. I used anon conductive tape to isolate the wiring from the tar and sharp edge that was cutting into the harness. This solution is less professional but can be done for little to nothing. Remember to disconnect the power as always. It's been over a year since without a problem using it for a family of six.
