I get an LE error after the unit starts, pumps out, and fills. For the full cycle the time is 2:17. At 2:14, three minutes into it the LE error comes up. I have found burned/broken wires in the door and repaired them. From what I've read here I need to replace the entire sump assembly. Which part number is it for my model?

All LG dishwasher SUMP ASSEMBLIES are interchangeable.

The current part number that should be used is: AJH31248604

I swear there are at least 2 different sumps as I clearly recall having the WRONG assembly with me on a couple of occasions, the difference was the positioning of the soil sensor - one in the front of the sump and one in the rear. During one of these misadventures I actually spliced the sensor harness to extend to the rear to make it work, seeing how the user was entirely upset that I had been sent the incorrect one.

I remember that you posted that...

Yours was an unusual circumstance.

The LG dishwasher that was being serviced for a new sump assembly was a newer model which had the soil / turbidity sensor already located at the front of the d/w.

In your case---somehow you ended up with an older sump assembly that pre-dated the model that you were servicing.

The plug for the soil sensor on the newer LG is *shorter* in length. Trying to relocate the plug from the front to the rear of the sump assy would be more difficult than the other way around.

Nevertheless---by leaving the plug *disconnected* you'll be doing the customer an enormous favor--especially now that the phosphate ban in detergent is in effect.

By not connecting the soil sensor----the cycles will NOT be shortened & consistent cleaning results are possible.

This also---fortunately---will not trigger an error message.
