The EI error code comes up. The model i actually have is a LG LD-14AT2. I have checked the manual and it says this is a water leakage problem. There are no obvious signs of water leakage. Does anybody know what i can look at to try and resolve this problem?

Re: EI error code.
Open door and note if snough water is in chamber. if not possibly water pressure related or possibly faulty flow switch if it uses one,also check sieve for partial blockage. Take note if drain pump motor comes on as this typically denotes a leak in the sump which has activated the flood float limit.
I just had a service tech from Best Buy tell me I don't have sufficent water pressure to fill the dishwasher in its alloted time. so it times out and says there is a water leak. I'm waiting to hear from LG about this before I call a plumber.

If you've checked everything, you will need to replace the impeller possibly.
Leakage error > Conditon: Excessive RPM of washing motor happened
during wash cycle due to water leakage.
Possible cause: Water leakage in hose connections,water is leaked by
damages. The motor water seal leakage of sump assembly. The height of
drain hose connection ( sink drain hose ) is not over 20". Impeller of
the washing pump is worn away.
The most common problem on an LG dishwasher when error code E1 is reported but there is no actual leak found is the problem of a natural syphon being created by improper installation of the dishwasher. Pretty easy to fix: Either add an Air Gap valve (available at any hardware store for almost free) or follow the drain hose from the dishwasher to the drain. Raise the hose and attach the hose to the up onto the bottom of the countertop. Adding that "rise" eliminates the possibility for the syphon effect to drain the dishwasher before the drain cycle begins.
If the hose ever fall back down, the problem will return immediately. Adding the Air Gap valve is harder but is far more permanent (and complies with construction codes that really should not be ignored.)
