My Samsung Dishwasher Model # DW80F800UWS/AA is flashing

Customer Question

My Samsung Dishwasher Model # ***** is flashing code 1E

So this error 1E means that the dishwasher isn't draining properly. You'll want to uninstall the dishwasher and make sure the drain hose isn't kinked since these hoses are so soft for Samsung. Disconnect the hose below the tub and blow through it to make sure it's clear. If everything is clear, remove the drain pump and check for debris that might be stopping the impeller from moving. And if all of that checks good and the drain hose is clear, you need to replace the drain pump.

OK that is different. I see you requested a phone call so I'll send that option, but LE means that your main circulation pump is failing. You'd need to remove the dishwasher and check to see if the wires going to the pump motor are damaged or loose. If they all check good, then your circulation motor would need to be replaced.
