    I have an LG LDF6810ST dishwasher - bought 9/07 - had pump motor replaced 12/7. Now, I get error code LE - I think I bought a piece of ****. Is this the pump motor again? First time, there was no error code. It just started making a bunch of noise.

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.

I have a LG diawsher, model # LDS5811ST that is


Display Condition LE = Motor Error

Possible Cause For Error Occurrence:

Wiring connection is OK?
The Impeller of Washing Pump is
locked.
The rotor of Washing Motor is
locked.
The Blade is locked.


Remedy:

Check the wiring connection.
Replace the cause of restriction.
Replace the Washing Motor.
Replace the PCB.

LE means locked motor disassemble the filter and work your way down to the macerator(steel chopper blade) remove it and see if the side labeled "this side up" is really up, its in english... dont think the chinese labourers paid attention to the warning cause i have seen alot that were wrong way
You also should remove the door panel and check for a broken wire (usually the blue one)

If all the wiring checks out - it is most likely a broken or locked up impeller.

LG dishwasher model lds5811st error LE


per instructions in other's posts, I removed door panel, but no wires broken, so called LG and local authorized LG repair and they tell me motor sub-assembly needs replacement, cost $160 for parts, $200 for labor, which is making a new dishwasher look attractive.
