Having problems with your LG 24 in. LD-12BW5 Free-standing Dishwasher ?

My Lg Dishwasher , model 12aw2 , has an error message OE shortly after start up , dishwasher is over 6 years old , is this a simple fault to repair? or not worth it ?


Answers :

The LG error code OE simply means "the pump is blocked". Presumably the water isn't being emptied properly. As with all error codes it is possible that there is a cause other than the exact description in the error code explanation but basically this error means as far as the washing machine is concerned it thinks the water isn't pumping out. A pump, or filter blockage is the most common cause but it could be caused by other faults such as a faulty pump, or even a blockage in the drain hose or somewhere else in the system etc.


LG themselves have some information on this error code..

Maytag MDBTT79AWW dishwasher fills and nothing else. Once filled you hear a click, followed by a humming sound for 3-5 seconds, then silence. This will happen two or three more times, and then unit will shut off. Motor doesn't start. Repairman says he thinks control board is bad, but he sounds like he is guessing. I performed a field service test , which indicated a fault in the high current motor circuit. Unit is seven years old. Don't know whether to attempt repair, or replace.


That sounds like the motor trying to start but being jammed it is shutting off via an internal breaker. Check for something in the bootom of dishwasher that might have gotten down there that could do this. You might have to take the sprayer off and s ... Dishwashers

GE GSD6610GOOB not cycling properly. Our dishwasher is about 6 years old and has been nothing but trouble the past year or so. We've already paid too much money repairing it the first time, (it simply stopped working - the control panel was totally dead) and don't want to pay anymore. Current problem - the machine starts up and fills with water and it sounds like it's running OK, then it will just stop, sometimes for a couple of minutes sometimes longer. Then it will start up again - and

Control Panel won't let me hit the start button. The dishwasher is a little over a year old and is used at most once a week. The blue light on the bottom right of the dishwasher seems to no longer light up. The control panel will let me select the wash, but the start button and time indicator does not light up. Not sure if this a real defect and if just a simple exchange of the front control panel will fix the problem? Already tried resetting the circuit breaker and that did not help. Than

Our Phillips SL2000 dishwasher (~20 years old?) has a leak from the door right hand bottom end when its splashing. The seals appear to be OK to touch and slightly pressing the door inwards does not reduce the leak. What could be the reason and is it worth repairing? The inside looks really good for its age and I am trying to extend its life at least a few years with minimal cost. Please advise.


When one of the sprayer arms develops a leak and sprays water in a downward direction toward the bottom of the door it can leak because it's not made to be sprayed on the seal in that direction. You might get wet but hold the arms still and watch for ... Dishwashers

My dishwasher (Maytag MDBH965AWQ quiet series 300 was purchased in May 2006 (making it just a little over 4 years old). The handle broke on it initially and now the control panel has gone out including the start button. The cost of the replacement parts is right around $200, so I don't think it is worth investing that kind of money into it since it seems to be a lemon anyway. I have always been faithful to Maytag. At the time of our kitchen remodel in 2006, we chose all Maytag appliances. I

10 year old Kenmore Ultra is leaking early in the washing cycle. Wondering if this is worth fixing or need to bite the wallet and buying a new one. I am worried about affecting the new cabinets even though the dishes seemed to be clean on the two occasions that the dishwasher has leaked. Only need a somewhat simple machine- I'd appreciate any suggestions as to what brands I should research if buy is the conclusion. Thanks.


At 10 years old I wouldn't put much if any money into it. Do check the water connections as it may be something simple that just needs to be tightened or a washer replacement. Replacing the valve is a simple and inexpensive fix but don't bother going ... Kenmore 24 in. 17482 / 17484 / 17489 Built-in Dishwasher
