I meant during the test mode did it read the RPM. The wires from the hall sensor to the connection at the bottom in the plastic is where I find the bad wires

After putting it back together it drains now.  Don't know what I did but it works.  Dripping leak where the drain impeller housing attaches to the hose but I will deal with that tomorrow night.

Hesterappliance - thanks

 - The display reads 17:9C
 - I replaced the lower harness (the motor wire harness)
 - Unless there is some check other than feeling for a smooth rotation and checking for "play" - I have checked the bearing.

Just now - after being unplugged a while - test mode did allow for the spin (2 and 3) to work.

Any opinions and theories welcome - especially if you know how I can find a main board.

I blew through the drain hose, there does not appear to be any blockage in the hose.  Attached is a picture of the impeller and housing

I took the washer out of the cabinet.  There does not seem to anything wrong with the impeller.  I ran the pump in drain mode and the motor and impeller spin without any trouble.

You have a "circulation pump" and a "drain pump". They are both located in the "sump" area underneath. If you follow the drain hose back from the sink, it will go straight into the drain pump

 When you put the washer in test mode what did the display read.and what part of the harness did you replace. did you check the bearings.

Does this dishwasher have individual pumps for wash mode and draining?  There is plenty of water coming out of the spray bars during the wash cycle.

More for the Guru's to ponder. (still broken but maybe some valuable insight?)

I thought perhaps if a failed or intermittent signal to the main board was at fault - and a low likelihood of the upper harness failing when the lower did not  (logical right?), and the likelihood that the main board failure was low (per john), then perhaps there was a plug on the main board that was not seated:  Here's what I did:

- Turn the washer for access again, unplug
- Shut off H and C supply - remove hoses
- remove cover plate and expose board
- tilt control panel to view board and check for strain
- unplug - reset every connector I could find on the board coming up from the harness

At this point I decided to put the hoses back on and plug it in with the panel off but control console in place  (plan was to get in test mode and test #2 slow spin and #3 high spin), so that I could do the "jiggle test" on the upper harness.   No need - the sonofagun went right to spinning - low and high - just as it should!!   But.....joy was fleeting - read on.

- Button it back up
- Turn on supply
- Run rinse and spin quick cycle.   fill, agitate and drain all ok.  Consistently - At about 12 minutes I hear a pump running - the tub has been drained at this point.  With about 9 minutes left in the cycle it goes quiet and produces the LE error after a couple of minutes.   Shizzle.

Now I went back to test mode to see if I can repeat the success on stage 2 and three above.  Interestingly - no spinning - but no matter the mode (2 or 3) the drain pump (or some pump) is running.

Perhaps the question is not why won't it get the spin command - but why won't it release the "drain/pump" command?   Is there a solenoid or some other feedback/controller that I should be looking at.

This is like playing clue....but not as much fun    ::)  Believe me - if there were a real LG tech somewhere in the north Atlanta suburbs - I'd be writing a check.  Thanks to guys like John and Domain - I know more than the local guys (or am at least more willing to WORK). 

What to do now?  Whose got a main board or could test/repair one?
