The OE or Overflow Error code.
The water inlet valve is an electrically-controlled valve that opens to allow water to enter the dishwasher. Depending on the model, the valve stays open either for a set length of time or until the dishwasher has enough water. However, if the water inlet valve doesn't shut off after the dishwasher has enough water, the dishwasher will overflow. If water drips into the dishwasher when the door is open, or if water collects at the bottom of the dishwasher while it is not use, you may need to replace the water inlet valve.

the main control board is fried from what you've described, you will need to dismantle it and remove the board (there will likely be visible signs of damage if there was a burning smell) relatively easy and cheap to replace

First a suggestion...try this guys solution with the impeller blade or ordering a different part. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/dishwasher-repair/318842-high-pitched-squel.html
Now the rant...NEVER BUYING AN LG ANYTHING AGAIN!!!! Just talked to LG customer service they are worthless. I have the LDS5811 with the same problem. If you aren't going to man up and back your product when there are major flaws I don't want to buy from you. I have spent 250 bucks servicing this unit and it is only 4 years old RIDICULOUS. LG you better get your act together. I am not going to buy another LG appliance unless they start owning up to their faulty manufacturing. This dishwasher was not cheap when I bought it and has been nothing but a head ache. First the wiring harness got loose and shorted the board, because they embedded the wiring in the insulation in the door. Now this stupid noise that tortures any animal within a mile. My home warranty won't fix it "till it breaks." Back into ear purgatory my family goes till I can get this part.

Besides spring streaches out over time or one rope breaks. Their are like three spots to hook spring to get tension for door. I just replaces both ropes as one broke and hooked springs in middle hole. Takes more time to pull washer out then to replace the ropes

Hello Karim;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

You have a expensive transmission drive dishwasher. Next time do not buy a transmission drive, then you may be able to access and replace parts yourself.

So, here are the parts and parts cost:

1.) Dishwasher Pump Assembly. Part cost: $170.00.

25697616-s1sviqltkhbgubmgxrmnjfot-1-2.jpg 3.) Dishwater filter. Cost: $65.00
25697616-s1sviqltkhbgubmgxrmnjfot-1-5.jpg 4.) Dishwasher Mesh Filter. Cost: $27.00.
25697616-s1sviqltkhbgubmgxrmnjfot-1-9.jpg So, lets say I am not retired from Sears Home Services and I came to your home on this service call.
Standard charges are the cost of the part marked up to twice the part cost. Labor for this job, several hours would be about $300.00+.

Do not call a service company. You are looking at a repair cost of over $700.00.

Purchase a new unit. Not transmission drive. Search; "Sears Outlet Stores". These are scratch and dent stores. You can save several hundred dollars and receive a one year warrantee. Stay away from transmission drives, LG & Samsung units.

I'd say either the motor is siezed or there is something in the drain impeller. The water is recycled a bit so if a fork or some such is in the impeller it would stop it from turning which would overheat the pump motor which would be potentially very bad. This sounds like a job big enough for a certified service call.

The door of the machine being open allows you to open the inner panel of the door by removing the screws around the periphery, in order to access the door lock mechanism. Replace if damaged.

If the dishwasher won't clean dishes, check the lower wash arm assembly. If the lower wash arm isn't getting water, all of the dishes in the lower rack will come out dirty. Check to be sure the lower wash arm assembly spins freely. Also check to be sure the little holes in the lower wash arm aren't clogged or blocked.

The dishwasher does not dry the dishes, it is the residual heat remaining from the washing water that dries the dishes.
Once the washing cycle is over, opening the door and pulling the top drawer out slightly to keep the door ajar will create a small opening which allows the steam to escape and the dishes then dry a lot quicker.

Please try the plain VINEGAR in the bottom of your dishwasher. It cleans out the pipes. When you start the machine it automatically starts to drain whatever water has been left from previous cycle. When this cannot happen, due to blocked outlet pipe, it will not precede with the wash cycle. Adding the vinegar, leaving it a few hours, or overnight (hey, I left it for a week one of those times!), it is enough to liquify any heavy fats in that pipe...enough to start the cycle and the normal draining gets reinstated.Hope this helps you, it is such a pain to go & choose another dishwasher to fit into the space allowed & that has all the functions you need. This 'fix' cures all my dishwasher blues! Havagreatday!

When this happened to my 12 year old dishwasher, I take out the filter at the base of washer, and using a cup, drain excess water. Add the cheapest VINEGAR to the base, screw the filter back in. Wait a few hours for the vinegar to do its magic, hey presto! the machine works again. I'm ready to buy another, newer model, but this trick works everytime! Sometimes, I don't even empty all that fluid out, but just add that Vinegar. Hope this solves your problem too. Havagreatday!

The manufacturer has assigned the 1E error or fault code to indicate that the washer is not filling with water. Check to be sure the water supply valves are open. Also, check to be sure the water supply hoses aren't kinked or clogged. Next, remove the hoses from the washing machine and run water into a bucket to test the pressure and flow of the water. If all of these check out and you have good water pressure and flow to the machine, you should replace the water inlet valve. This is the electrically operated valve that allows water into the machine when required.
