Hi.

E1 means that there is water leakage from hose connection, or that there is leakage because one part is broken. In simpler words it means that the machine detects incorrect pressure and amount of water because of a fault or because of incorrect hose settings.

Disconnect power. Check the plastic hose on the side.

Clean drain. Check the drain hose settings. Ensure that the drain hose is at the height specified on manual. Do a test running a cycle with the drain hose down in the bucket.

If hoses are OK, then problem can be hoses and seals connected to the motor. If seals are OK, then the motor must be replaced. Motor and seals are located behind the kick panel at the base of the appliance.

Regards.

Our Lg dishwasher ( model No:LD'1403W1) stops after 5 to 10 minutes into the cycle, and presents with a E1 error. Have checked the drain is clear, the inflow pipe is working. Not sure what is wrong with...


E1 means: Water Level in Drum lowering, this would usually mean there is a leak on one of the pipes. But from previous experiences it is more than likely (90%) that it is the Circulation pump. It will have to be replaced, as it is a common spare that has to be replaced on L.G Dishwashers (lifetime 12 - 18 Months usually) - Not overly expensive. Usually is about 20%-25% the price of a new Dishwasher. The Circulation pump is fitted to the sump.

See below a image of what a Circulation Pump looks like:

What is an E1 error code for an LG Dishwasher? Model LD12AW2


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!

E 1 error


90% of the time you get an E1 error code is because the drain hose is not properly installed between the LG dishwasher and the drain. The hose should connect to an Air Gap valve (almost free at any hardware store) but in a pinch, raise the drain hose near the drain and attach the hose to the bottom of the counter top under the sink. Is should rise almost 30 inches between the dishwasher and the drain or the water WILL siphon out of the dishwasher as soon as the wash or rinse cycle begins (and take 5 minutes before the water gets low enough the cause the E1 error.
Good Luck!

LG Dishwasher making grinding noise then blinking E1 code 10 minutes later


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!
