LG Dishwasher with a reported code of LE. Model # LDS5811ST/01  The customer left home for several weeks and when they came back, the power was still on with this code.  She turns the power off and everything runs fine, just the power stays on.  Any idea where i should start with trouble shooting?  Thanks

<<<LG Dishwasher with a reported code of LE. Model # LDS5811ST/01>>>

 

********************

 

All LDS5811 dishwashers had flawed SUMP ASSYs.

 

If the SUMP ASSY has never been replaced before (under warranty or otherwise)---replace with the revised/new SUMP ASSY.

 

Original Sump Assy: 6871DD1002B

 

Revised: AJH31248604

 

*******************

 

<<<The customer left home for several weeks and when they came back, the power was still on with this code>>>

 

*******************

 

If the customer started the dishwasher---before leaving the home---this simply indicates that the WASH MOTOR either seized or began to slow down (RPMs) during the cycle---which would then trigger an "LE" error.

The error would remain active/flashing until the dishwasher is turned off. 

 

*******************

 

<<<She turns the power off and everything runs fine>>>

 

*******************

 

Not uncommon in older LG dishwashers with the faulty/intermittent Wash Motor issue.

 

*******************

 

<<<just the power stays on>>>

 

********************

 

The "LE" error keeps returning?

 

or...

 

The dishwasher never turns off ?


To eliminate:

Musty odor

L-O-N-G cycle times

Dingy/yellowing whites

Suds error message

Slow spin speeds

Intermittent water leaks (from rear of washer)

And other annoying symptoms which vary brand-to brand.

Read below:

The *correct* amount of HE (High Efficiency) detergent that should be used in any front load or agitatorless top load washer with tub sizes 3.0 cu ft and larger is as follows:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Wash Load

HE 2X: (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X: (1) Teaspoon

Perform a TUB CLEAN CYCLE every (4) months.

Use: "Tide Washing Machine Cleaner"

The video shown above is very useful for the novice---however there are 2 things that should be known...

 

1) The model used in the video is not a "5811" model but another model which has the STEAM CLEAN option.

     On the "5811" model---there's less clutter underneath---no STEAM GENERATOR nor is there a DUAL WATER VALVE.

 

2) Obviously the video was made as an educational aid/guide---in a consumer's home it's not a good idea to place the dishwasher

    *on it's side*---as water will leak out from the tub onto the floor (big mess).

     Any LG dishwasher can be serviced (Sump Assy Replacement) with a full tub of water---as long as it is placed on *it's back*.
