My LG dishwasher will show the famous LE code at the end of the 'quick wash' cycle. I checked the wire harness, seems fine, although I did notice two small slices in two different wires, the wire was not breached, just the plastic. I taped up the spots. The sound dampening foam seem to be fine. I took out the motor. I did see a plastic straw from my babies bottle (about 3 inches long) that did get in down by the blades. Not sure if this was stopping the motor or not. Everything moves freely. No freeze-ups.
After putting everything back together. All seems fine. It washes and I hear it drain too. About 15 mins left on the cycle and than the LE code goes off again. I dont think its the motor. Is there a sensor that may be at fault?
ANSWER Hello Anthony,
The fault would not be caused by a sensor. The Fault LE indicates that the motor is working abnormally. You want to check all wiring to make sure it is in good condition. Check the impeller of washing pump for being locked. Check the rotor of the washer motor for being locked and check the blade for being locked. If all this checks ok then you would need to replace the PCB.
