I had a similar issue, I am not sure if this will your issue or not, but it is worth a shot.

Mine threw the Vario motor error about 8 months into use and it was actually the impeller that pumps water around from the base of the unit. It was making contact with the filter/cover over it, causing it to spin too slowly and throw the error.

Both dish drawers had to be removed and about 8 screws in that secure the filter in the bottom of the unit. When you get the cover off check to see if anything is impeding the impeller, If not, Look at the bottom side of the cover. Mine had white streaks in a circular fashion. I scraped off the white plastic swirls with a chisel and verified the top of the impeller was smooth as well. Reassembled and it worked again.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: IE input error on LG dishwasher Model LDF6810ST

Chris;
The float you speak of is located behind the left side panel. (be careful if you remove the panel, the back edge is real sharp,.... I left a pint of blood at one house !) Water enters the dishwasher fill assembly and turns a paddle wheel, which allows the control to count the revolutions, determining the amount of water filling into the dishwasher. The float is inside a chamber in front of (and attached to) that water guide and it has two micro switches at the top of the float chamber. If I recall correctly, the float is only for overfill protection, as the paddle wheel determines water amount. You should check the screen at the water valve to make sure nothing is obstructing inlet valve water flow. Also, make sure you are not using a "flood safe" inlet hose, which are designed to shut off water if a hose breaks (but can cause water supply issues). You may have a bad control board or wiring connection. On a new unit I would suggest calling for warranty service.
Please don't rate this solution, as anything but a FixYa will lower my score.
Thanks, Carl.

SOURCE: LE error code

No recalls at this point. the repair man is correct. the circulation motor is damaged.

You should know that, this model has many issues that we deal with on this site that concern this (LE) trouble code. The circulation motors are not reliable in this model.

Hi ferrojennife,

The E1 you are seeing means Water Level in Drum lowering, this means there is a leak on one of the pipes. More likely it is the Circulation Pump, which is responsible for pushing the water to the Spray arms.

It will have to be replaced, as it is a common spare that has to be replaced on L.G Dishwashers (lifetime expectancy: 12 - 18 Months) - Not very expensive.

Usually is about 20%-25% the price of a new Dishwasher. The Circulation pump is fitted to the sump. Part Number: 5859DD9001A or 5859ED1001A (Depending which one is in stock)

See below a image of what a Circulation Pump looks like:

LG model LDS4821ST.... Top and Upper spray arms arn't rotating.


I have an LG LDF8922ST model with the same exact problem (16 months old as well). I think you are right about the vario spray system. Seems like the repair guys that come out are clueless and get very little assistance from LG customer assistance. I will never buy another LG product again.

Not enough water pressure to move upper arms or clean dishes


Recommend you pull the bottom spray arm straight up, then out of the DW.
Remove 9 phillips screws that hold the filter shroud down. Remove the filter and clean/rinse it out.
While the filter it out, grab a flashlight and inspect all over the sump area. Especilly in the area the has the check valve that rotates (Vario motor-driven) to feed the water pressure either to the lower and then the upper arms. Watch out for broken glass! Also, inspect the impeller to see if it is undamaged and spins easily.
Reassemble, then test out.
If problems remain, the the wash pump motor is probably the culprit. Do you get any error messages on the time display?
Good Luck!
