LG Dishwasher with LE error code (continuing an old thread)
« on: January 19, 2017, 02:19:19 PM »
LDF6810ST     I am getting the LE code about 30 min into the wash cycle.  I have removed the front panel and searched for "broken" wires. I am sure it is the motor assembly 4681ED1004A but want to be able to confirm before I purchase (expensive as I'm in Canada). Obviously I have checked all the way down to the chopper, motor "seems" to spin freely, is there a way to diagnose a failing motor?  My concern lies in the time the cycles seem to run, I can hear everything, get water discharge, etc. On a rinse cycle only, the LE only comes on right near the end of the cycle. If it were the motor assembly wouldn't I get the LE earlier in the cycle?

For what it is worth...

I was getting intermittent LE codes on my LG as well.  I finally pulled the dishwasher out, removed the door cover to expose the wiring harness and found a broken wire right where the wires bend to go to the assemblies in the base plate.  I only saw one wire with the unit still installed, but found the second while I had the unit out, on its back, and more exposed.

I spliced the wires, put it back together and it works better than it has in years (the heat-dry cycle seems to work better).   I think that a wire my have broken years ago affecting heat/dry, but the most recent break was causing the LE fault, making it useless.
