The Samsung Dishwasher Error Code LC Indicates to the Water Leakage Error. It means that the leak sensor in the Samsung Dishwasher has detected a water leak in the system. The formation of Moisture can also cause the LC error.
If you find any residual water under the dishwasher, there may be an issue with the leak sensor. The leak sensor’s primary function is to send the signal to the control module to start the drain pump whenever there is excess water in the tank. In this scenario, you will get the Samsung Dishwasher LC error.
During this Error, the dishwasher will automatically start and will not turn OFF. It will try to remove all the excess water.
How To Fix Samsung Dishwasher Error Code LC
There can be many reasons for LC error. Let’s see how to identify the error and fix it.
Reset the Samsung LC Code
- Switch OFF the dishwasher.
- Disconnect the water supply.
- Wait for 10-15 minutes.
- Connect the water supply.
- Start the Samsung Dishwasher again.
In most cases, the LC error will go away. If you still get the issue, you will need to check the other parts of the dishwasher.
Main causes of LC error code (No Water Leak)
If you observe that there is no water leak in the dishwasher, then you have to check the other causes of the Error LC. Let’s Look at them.
Using Too Much Detergent
We always recommend using the appropriate quantity of detergent. Too much detergent can be harmful to your dishwasher. More detergent means more foam, which may cause the dispenser to overfill quickly. It will result in the LC error code.
Is your Dishwasher recently Installed?
If your dishwasher is recently installed or moved to your new home, then there may be moisture build-up inside the dishwasher due to more movement. This moisture will wrongly tell the leak sensor that water is leaking.
For clearing this Error, we recommend not to use the dishwasher at least for one day so that all moisture can dry up, and hence leak sensor will not give the false error.
Check Garbage Disposal
Have you connected your dishwasher to garbage disposal recently? You should make sure that you have removed the garbage disposal cap. Ensure that there is no cap. If there is a cap on the garbage disposal, then remove it and start the dishwasher again.
The function of the garbage cap is to store the undissolved molecules in it. And during the time of cleaning the machine, it is removed. But sometimes when the garbage disposal cap overloaded, then the water may not drain properly.
You need to remove the garbage disposal cap every day. If you keep cleaning the cap, then error will not happen. We also advise cleaning the dishwasher at least once every week. Hopefully, the error will not happen again.
Continuous LC error Flashing
If you are seeing continuous error LC flashing on the screen, then you have reset the error code. To clear the LC code, you have to disconnect the dishwasher from the main power supply and disconnect the water supply.
It will help in not only reset the error code but also will allow the drying of any water or moisture that has formed in the dishwasher. When the humidity has dry out, then the leak sensor will work correctly. Please note that the leak sensor is susceptible to any moisture and will display the problem code even if there is little moisture.
If it still does not resolve the issue, then please proceed to the next step.
Check the Leak Sensor
If the above suggestions do not work for you, you may have to do advanced troubleshooting and check for any leaks sensor issues. You can try by removing and inspecting the leak sensor. Let’s see the steps on how to do it.
- Disconnect the Samsung dishwasher from the power supply.

- We recommend adjusting the leak sensor a little up by a few inches. It will help in removing any incorrect Samsung dishwasher LC error code.
- Also, check the water Hose and ensure that it is not leaking.
- Now put all components back into the dishwasher.
- Plug the dishwasher to the power supply.

If the water hose is not securely fitted into the dishwasher, the water may leak from the dishwasher. Tighten all the connections and, if requires, change any broken pipes. Also, ensure that the drain hose and other pipes are not clogged.
We recommend cleaning the drain hose and removing any food particles that may have stuck inside it.
