LG LE Error

I saw the problem was fixed by a broken wire, Where can the wire be found? Is there a test procedure for this error? I have a LE error. The machine takes on water, and will pump water out, but error appears and no wash takes place. Any help?? Thanks

The broken wire would be where the wires pass from the bottom of the door into the dishwasher body. A more likely cause may be a motor problem. A number of main motors have had problems with the magnets coming loose or breaking up, resulting in the LE code. You can remove the phillips head screws around the sump cover to gain assess to the impeller, which is attached to the end of the motor shaft. (via a LEFT HAND THREAD screw.) Turn the impeller by hand and listed for noise. Shaft should turn freely, smoothly, and quietly. If it does not, remove the impeller and the cutter bar, remove dishwasher from cabinet, lay it on it's side, and remove four phillips mounting screws from motor and wiring. There is a two year warranty on all parts.

I get an LE error message on my LG Dishwasher. I replaced the pump. Still get the LE error. Replaced the main control. Still get the LE. No blockage in the pump. What now?

When you receive the LE error code, unplug the machine for approximately 15 - 20 minutes. This will reset the microprocessor.

Oversudsing is the main cause of LE error codes. Using non-HE detergents or too much detergent will cause stress on the motor. Oversudsing can also cause leaking and odor.

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.

A couple of notes about this - there are at least three motors on this unit - the main pump, the drain pump, and the 'vario motor' which appears to control the direction of water flow through the sprayers. The main pump is the one likely to go bad. Another cause of the LE code is broken wires in the door. The wires in the door get stuck in the black sound insulation and eventually break. Sometimes, this causes the LE error code. Check the wires in the door first. They are located behind the large front panel. It's easily removed by undoing 6 screws.

Dishwasher starts and after a while the LE error appears and the diswasher shuts down

take the front door panel off and check and see if your wires are melted into this black spray on insulation. If they are you need to free them from this mess and check for any broken wires. Make sure your plug is unplugged if you need to fix the wires, cut them and splice them back together. Then insert the bundle into a cut bicycle tube and secure it together. Put the door back on and check it to see if the LE code comes up again. Then call LG and let them know what you found. They act like this is something new and it is not. They need to come up with a better solution. The only true fix is to get rid of the LG and buy a better model.

LE on display

I just had my LG dishwasher fixed. I told the repair man that LE light was comming on. Even over the phone the repairman said its probably broken wires on the door. Me being in construction for years looked around the door for wires. Anyway the repairman took off 6 screws around the door, took the cover off. You will see about 50 wires taped together. He pulled them aside and visually checked them one by one. Sure enough two were broken in two. He twisted them together put tape and he was gone. $87.50 Still Working!

I have and LG nodel #LDS5811ST and after ad couple of minutes it stops with the code LE showing in the time window, what does this mean!

The wire harness has probably degraded and broken inside the door panel of the unit.

This unit may need a new wire harness, Main PCB, Sump and inner door liner.
Depending on serial#

Contact LG @ 1 800 243-0000 they may help you out.

This is a known issue on older dishwashers.

LE is a locked motor error. If the serial number on your unit starts with 712 or anything lower, then it is most likely a wiring issue inside the door.

If this is your case, call LG customer service at 800-243-0000 and have them refer to service bulletin # IDSW20070060. The door liner and the wiring harness will need to be replaced.

LG Dishwasher LE error

When you repair the wires, be sure to wrap the wire harness is plastic like the type you would find in Safeway produce section.  This will keep the wire harness from getting melted on to the black insulation and creating this problem again.

Model No- LD-12AW2 LE Error showing what does this mean

LE error code means that there is a problem with the motor.  One thing to check is to remove the front door panel and check the wiring harness to see if there are any broken wires.  If there is, repair the wire connections and see if the dishwasher returns to normal.  If not, then the motor assembly will need to be replaced.

LE is locked motor or break in the wire to the motor if under warranty call for service as there is a problem with the noise insulation (in the door) deterioration the coating of wires and causing any kind of failure.

LE error code

Yes this certainly is a sticking point, the inside of the panel is coated with black insulation, when it heats up the wires stick in it and eventually the wires break. The fix is as stated, splice the broken wires together, as well take some of the white insulation and put it in between the wires and the liner.

The errors that can arise from the sticky wires are numerous, LE, IE, etc. EI though is more than likely a siphoning problem. If your unit is noisey during operation, open the door, what is the water level? It should be at the second rim. If not, that is your first clue that the unit is siphoning. Make sure you have your loop in the drain hose.
