LDS5540ST dishwasher runs and at end of cycle displays error code "HE"..
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.

LE code on LG dishwasher. Already tried resetting by flipping breaker then holding start button 5 seconds.
Does anyone know how to fix this error code?
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.

How do I change out a pump motor on an LG direct drive dishwasher
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!
