No apparent blockages...The heater seems to be ok.....When I run diag.  for the wash pump test and the wash-drain-water supply test I get some bells and CE flashing on display.  That wasn't happening before, does it mean anything significant?

Oh and the board is fine....In fact I swapped out PCB's and it didn't solve the problem.  So here is my last question for you guys.....based on what we know should I get a motor or sump assy. and try replacing that myself or just bite the bullet and call someone.   Thanks once again

This particular model has enough problems with the motor and flow sensor - they don't even make it two years!  My motor also siezed up, but I don't have enough confidence that the d/w won't break again; so I'm buying a new one vs. replacing the motor.

Good Luck!

LG diswashers do not display a code for RPMs that a slightly lower than normal. The also do not display codes for over RPM. The LE code will appear if the motor is locked or nearly stopped. Washing capability will diminish if the internal water heater does not fuction ( indicated by a lack of steam or lowering interior water temps. through the progression of individual cycles), If the motor is failing, & if the water temp. and amount of detergent used are right and the detergent is dispensing properly. The soil sensor can also cause this but is impossible to properly troubleshoot. The soil sensor is part of the sump assy. along with the motor.

Update

Replaced sump assy.....still not working.  Washing dishes by hand and using DW as drying vessel.  Does anyone have any creative uses for a like new, broken down, tall tub DW?

Thanks
