Well, looks like I posted too soon.  After re-connecting the wires and putting it all back together, and being sure that had to be it, I'm still getting the error code.  So either I still got a bad connection or something else is wrong.  Hard to believe that it was working with these wires cut all along and something else went bad.  Guess I'll try some testing with the multi-meter tomorrow.  I'll post if I have any luck.

I had the same broken blue wire problem w/ the LDS58xx, identified after removing the front panel.

The LE code is now completely gone, and the piece of crap is back working again.

Completely sucks that I had already dismantled this to replace the washing motor (that diagnostic flowchart in the service manual is a complete joke), but, hopefully having done that gives the POS machine a few extra months of life. Also like pretty much everyone else, it was necessary to replace the drain pump after the first year.

LG appliances are to be avoided.

My LG, 6810st model, had the same LE error.  Wasn't to keen on peeling the front cover off, but after removing the 12 screws the front 'dropped' off and the wireharness was plainly visible.  After a couple minutes of staring, and not pulling on any of the wires, (1) wire was clearly 'broke'.  A red wire, with the break about dead center of the front assembly.  One end was clearly stuck into the tarlike sound deadening black substance. 

It was such a clean break that I wonder if it wasn't a combination of careless handling during manufacture, as well as the continual movement of the wiring harness at close and open.   It is no surprise that the break occured directly below where the wire was embedded into the tarlike substance. 

With a wire nut I secured the two ends of the red wire and tested the 'fix'.  The DW is running without issue.

Many thanks to the folks at this site and all who took the time to respond.    O0

I have an LE LDF6810ST - about 4 years old.
I have had the dishwasher go bad 2x with the LE code.

Both times it was an easy fix. I took the dishes out, and undid all the plastic at the bottom where the drain is and the thing that spins and washes the dishes - all the way down to the chopping blade. all you need is a screwdriver. I cleaned everything up. ends out, both times, some sort of string got hung up around the bottom of the turbine - and it collected garbage so it was pushing against the screen below it that protects the chopper. so the motor was being restricted from moving. the LE actually stopped itself from burning the motor out...
anyhow, that took about an hour. make sure you drain the water out first. hit rinse and then start and close it up. Listen for the water to stop drainaing as it always does before it washes - a minute or two. then open the washer. then work in a dry area...

note - the screw for the turbine is lefty tighty, righty loosy...opposite the norm

dont get me wrong tho, this thing is horrible. takes forever to wash the dishes and it never dried them. the water it might save by running longer it wastes in electricity to run so long. its always been loud too.

hold off. that did not work this time
now even with no "hardware" in the machine - just the post from the motor sticking up, the motot is making a terrible noise - a grinding noise. but there is no blade or anything attached to the motor - just the post sticking up, think my motor went bad. oh well.
how do i order one?
