Dishwasher is brand new. Purchased april 2020. This morning, it decides to come on by itself. When we looked into it, code LC is blinking.

I'm sorry to hear that, have you tried the following? 

LC, LE  The dishwasher's leak sensor detects moisture or the water reflector is blocked (Waterwall models only). When this code occurs, the dishwasher will turn itself on and will not turn off. During this time it will attempt to drain the water away.

  • If you see a leak, see our guide for Dishwasher leaks water.
  • If you're certain that there is not a leak:
    • If you recently moved the dishwasher, some water may have splashed near the sensor. Give it time to dry. If the noise of the dishwasher is bothersome, unplug it or turn it off at the circuit breaker.
    • If you've recently connected the dishwasher to a garbage disposal, make sure the garbage disposal cap is removed.
    • Make sure the detergent dispenser has not been overfilled or extra detergent added outside of the dispenser.

If you continue to get the error, this will require service.
