LG LDS5811 - LE Error Code
« on: January 08, 2014, 06:33:32 AM »
This site is a great resource.  I have read many posts about the LE error code on the LG LDS5811 unit.  The wires behind the front panel look fine. 

If the macerator blade does not spin freely, what is the part that needs to be replaced? 

Thanks in advance for any help.

To clarify, I removed the spray arms and related parts inside.  The blade does spin, but only with a wrench.  It spins freely for 1/4 to 1/2 a turn.

Any advice on the proper part or parts to order?

Thank you.

Since the blade doesn't turn freely, you need to replace the sump assembly.

 :thanks: 

The sump assembly was the problem.  Bought the part, found a great video on YouTube, followed along and it's running great.

Can I buy you guys a beer?    :cheers:

I spoke too soon.  I am now getting a OE error (Drain Error). 

When I start a cycle, there is nothing (no pump, no draining, just silence) until the unit starts to fill.  Unfortunately, after a partial cycle, I get the OE error and I now have a tub full of water that won't drain.

Of the four possibilities from LG (The Drain Hose kinked or blocked, Wiring connection is OK?, The drain outlet of sump is blocked or The Drain Pump/Motor or circuit is troubled), which is most likely, keeping in mind it's a new sump assembly?

Hard to say since you already checked the wire harness inside the door panel and it looks ok to you.  I'd recommend checking the circuits to make sure you have continuity from the board to the pump and then check to see if power is going to the pump.

Closing the loop in this.  Of the 37 connections required to properly install the sump assembly, I completed 36 of them.   :oops:

After pulling out, shop-vac'ing water and finding the drain pump connection, all is now well.  Thanks again for the help and support.

Side note - the new pump runs quieter than the old one did, so that's an added bonus.
