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.

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.

I had a similar issue, I am not sure if this will your issue or not, but it is worth a shot. Mine would do this about 4 minutes into the cycle after it had pumped water into the unit, Started after about 8 months of use.

The issue 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.

The cycle selector is erratic. Possibly defective if you have had the machine for awhile.

no you cant regulate the water lever its done automatically ,it may sound sluggish some do but it still washes them dishes

Check float valve actuator, might be indicating empty when water left behind. Think you can hear switch actuate as you move it.
So no clog or twist in drain hose? Manual indicates any standing water drains in first 45 secs. Makes me wonder if that is now normal. Was it always or just started to leave water....
Make sure you clean filter located in bottom

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.
