LC means there is water in the base of the dishwasher. You'll need to uninstall the dishwasher and tip it forward to drain all the water out. Once the water is drained out. You can re-install the dishwasher and the error should go away. You can also just give it a week or two and the water will evaporate and the dishwasher should start working like normal again.
