Yes. I have the same problem. We've owned for just a few months. Crack is just to the right of the time. I have the extended warranty from Lowe's. If this is a known problem they will likey replace it.

I'm guessing, but I would look for a water level issue. Maybe the float switch assuming you don't have water on the floor.

I believe the time displays based on your selection. If you don't see any change when changing selection it may be a faulty touch panel.
Assuming you tried resetting the whole unit. Sounds like program error in the main board.

Your dishwasher washes & rinses fine, you are having a problem with the drying part of the washer. It's the heating element. But just to be sure, clean out the bottom of the washer. You can simple unscrew the plastic nut from the bottom, lift off the cover & remove all debris. replace cover & nut. You could try to run the washer empty & let it have a good cleaning(I do this once a month) Cleaning the washer probably won't help the unit go into the dry cycle, but it is something you should do monthly, for PM. If you know someone handy they can replace the heating unit ordered from LG or your Manuel may give you some places.(or off the web) AND if you are lucky & the dishwasher is less than 1 year old it's still under warranty for parts only. Labor is what gets you. Again, most people know someone who is handy. Sorry I couldn't give you good news.

It looks like the LE code means the motor is under a larger load than expected.

I am not sure but it may be worth checking the impeller that pumps water at the bottom of the unit. I had one that made contact with the bottom of the filter cover and melt the plastics to each-other which caused a different error code that basically translates to the motor failed. In this case my motor wouldn't move at all, Yours may still be moving, but the additional friction could be throwing the code and stopping the load.

The easiest way to check is to remove the drawers in the unit and open up the sending unit cover in the bottom (as if you were going to replace the impeller), It is usually somewhere around 8 screws and should come off relatively easily, If not, look for missed screws. Check the top of the impeller and the bottom of the impeller cover for any signs of contact. I had signs on the bottom of the filter, I scraped the melted plastic off of the cover and the impeller, reassembled and my issue went away. Hopefully yours is the same. Good luck.

First things first, safety is always first so put on gloves, eye protection, etc. but most importantly turnoff the breaker that supplies power to the dishwasher, you'll find this in your home's main breaker box/fuse panel. Verify it's off by attempting to power the dishwasher on after turning off power at the breaker! Now, remove it from underneath your countertop or wherever it is, carefully unhook all electrical connections and hoses, swap out the pump, it's simple, accessing it is more troublesome than actually doing it!

could be the salt level is low. check the tank in bottom of the dishwasher inside.

Do the top buttons still work even without the backlight? or are they not functional as well.

One of the more common issues I have seen that can cause that is the sound-deadening insulation in the door (which is rubber-like) will sometimes get the wires stuck in it and as the door is opened and closed they will stretch and break. It may be worth checking in the door to see if you have any broken or segmented wires.
