Question about Kenmore Dishwashers
SOURCE: kenmore 70 series
The following link explains how to replace a pump on a Kenmore top loader:
The pump is only held in place by two retaining clips. Once the clips are removed, the pump (with hoses still attached) pulls directly off the motor shaft. NOTE: If the pump is leaking, it is NOT repairable and requires replacement. These pumps are sealed units. Replacements can be ordered on line at searspartsdirect.com, repairclinic.com or appliancepartspros.com. All three sites offere competitive pricing so shop all three for the best price. If you require addtional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Take thre drain hose off from disposal. Pour hot water down the hose until full. Cover end with hand. Press cancel/drain while holding hand over hose - over bucket. That may unstick checkvalve balls and or fix air lock. I have to do that every 6 months or so. Started happening 1 month out of warranty. Go figure. Not a fix - just a work-around...

While LE is the LG error code for "Motor Error": The Motor is working
abnormally, it does not always mean that the motor itself has failed.
As you replaced the pump motor, are you certain that the Impeller of Washing Pump is turning freely? Next, is the Blade spinning freely?
If everything above is obviously not locked, the next item is the controller board. (PCB)
Hope that helps. Please report back with your findings! Good Luck.

holding the button for four seconds will not do it, you have to hold it until the light stops blinking and
will go back to normal, normall takes more than four seconds to unlock the unit, this is something
the sears repair techs know becouse the are trained on all this things but, they will not share this things, becouse thats how they make money

The most common cause of an OE error code on a modern LG dishwasher is:
1. Blocked drain hose
2. Obstruction in the sump area (beneath the filter, which needs to be removed to check for onstruction)
3. Failing drain motor.
else you need to REPLACE THE PCB POWER CONTROL BOARD
