My dishwasher was doing the same thing, but it was because of a clogged vent. The minerals in the water built up to a point that it was totally blocked and since it couldnt vent, the water ran down the inside of the door and leaked out the bottom. I just popped the vent cover off of the inside of the door and cleaned it out and it stopped leaking.

My LG dishwasher was doing the same thing. It's 2 1/2 years old. I called LG and they finally did a smart diagnostic test which showed not enough power coming in. I had to call a electrician and he checked both the circuit breaker and the line into the dishwasher and both read at 222 amps. So I called LG back and they gave me the names of three LG repairmen. All three places were over 200 miles from my home and would not come. One said that he does not like working with LG especially if it is still under warranty. But I remembered one review saying that as time goes on the door will not make a complete connection so just slam it and see if it goes. It completes a full cycle and works perfect but I have to slam the door. Hoping this works for a few more years then I will get a new one but not an LG!

Yes. I have the same problem. We've owned for just a few months. Crack is just to the right of the time. I have the extended warranty from Lowe's. If this is a known problem they will likey replace it.

the water is not heated or the temperature in the tub is overheated to over 194F. https://finderrorcode.com/lg-dishwasher-error-codes.html

LG has programmed in the E1 error code to indicate when the drain pump is running, it is not receiving the back pressure it needs. This is most likely an indication that there is a water leak in the draining system. https://removeandreplace.com/2017/03/06/lg-dishwasher-error-code-e1-how-to-clear/

I have this sometimes where E1 is reported and the pump remains on. The following voodoo has worked for me.

1) Make sure there is not a real drain problem.
2) Cancel any cycle or turn the power button off then on.
3) Run a rinse cycle (15 minutes).
4) If pump continues to run, turn off the power to the dishwasher, let stand for a minute, then repeat steps 2-3. If still not working, leave power off over night and leave the door open then try again.

In each iteration, it is important to curse your LG product and/or threaten it with replacement.

That is the purpose of the lock button on the panel. It is actually to keep young children from starting or switching settings.
Simply press and hold the lock button down for 3-5 seconds, this will unlock the panel.

I don't know of PE as a error for the dishwasher, however stranger things have happened.
Lg has had problems with older units prior to mar 07. They have had wires breaking in the door. If you turn off the power and remove the panel. Look for broken wires and or wires stuck in the insulation. Check for continuity as sometimes it can be an internal break. Fix this and you should be good. Oh put some insulation between before closing it up .

It might have an adjustment knob where you fill the jet dry. 1 is lowest. If no adjustment then you probably have a bad soap dispenser and would need replacement.

I'm guessing, but I would look for a water level issue. Maybe the float switch assuming you don't have water on the floor.
