Question about LG Dishwashers
I had a similar issue, I am not sure if this will your issue or not, but it is worth a shot.
Mine threw the Vario motor error about 8 months into use and it was actually the impeller that pumps water around from the base of the unit. It was making contact with the filter/cover over it, causing it to spin too slowly and throw the error.
Both dish drawers had to be removed and about 8 screws in that secure the filter in the bottom of the unit. When you get the cover off check to see if anything is impeding the impeller, If not, Look at the bottom side of the cover. Mine had white streaks in a circular fashion. I scraped off the white plastic swirls with a chisel and verified the top of the impeller was smooth as well. Reassembled and it worked again.
Hope this helps.

The float you speak of is located behind the left side panel. (be careful if you remove the panel, the back edge is real sharp,.... I left a pint of blood at one house !) Water enters the dishwasher fill assembly and turns a paddle wheel, which allows the control to count the revolutions, determining the amount of water filling into the dishwasher. The float is inside a chamber in front of (and attached to) that water guide and it has two micro switches at the top of the float chamber. If I recall correctly, the float is only for overfill protection, as the paddle wheel determines water amount. You should check the screen at the water valve to make sure nothing is obstructing inlet valve water flow. Also, make sure you are not using a "flood safe" inlet hose, which are designed to shut off water if a hose breaks (but can cause water supply issues). You may have a bad control board or wiring connection. On a new unit I would suggest calling for warranty service.
Please don't rate this solution, as anything but a FixYa will lower my score.

SOURCE: LE error code
No recalls at this point. the repair man is correct. the circulation motor is damaged.
You should know that, this model has many issues that we deal with on this site that concern this (LE) trouble code. The circulation motors are not reliable in this model.

Do you hear the washer draining (into the sink drain) after it fills and should start washing? Check that nothing (sound deadener, etc.) is interferring with the drain valve lever arm.

The E1 you are seeing means Water Level in Drum lowering, this means there is a leak on one of the pipes. More likely it is the Circulation Pump, which is responsible for pushing the water to the Spray arms.
It will have to be replaced, as it is a common spare that has to be replaced on L.G Dishwashers (lifetime expectancy: 12 - 18 Months) - Not very expensive.
Usually is about 20%-25% the price of a new Dishwasher. The Circulation pump is fitted to the sump. Part Number: 5859DD9001A or 5859ED1001A (Depending which one is in stock)
See below a image of what a Circulation Pump looks like:
