Having problems with your LG Dishwashers ?

After i start my l g dishwasher it stops and flashes l e on the start button , and the water wont drain


Answers :

The LE error is saying that water is "leaking" out of the dishwasher before it is being intentionally pumped out. If you have checked underneath the unit for a real leak, then 99% of the time, your problem is related to a law of physics.

Follow the drain hose from underneath the dishwasher over to where it connects to the drain (normally the disposal) I bet you will find that the dishwasher is connected directly to that drain and not connected through an air gap. The hose is probably routed along the floor with no high point.

The drain hose must have a high point in it somewhere in the run so that a natural siphon does not get created and "pulls" the water out of the dishwasher while it is running.

Best way to fix it is to install a dishwasher air gap (almost free at any real hardware store) but you can also lift the hose and attach it somewhere to (under) the counter. That will prevent the LE error.

I have a zanussi ZSF2440 dishwasher, when it turned on by the power button on the front you can choose a cycle and start it, Once the cycle is started it fills up with water but doesn't stop until it over flows setting off the flood protection, which cuts the power, so all the lights on the display go off and stops the water flow and drains the dishwasher and keeps draining the dish washer while the flood protection is on.

New dishwasher (Beko 2542F slimline model). Put it on for 1st time last night -when I got up this morning, the cycle which should have taken just over 2 hours hadn't finished. There's soapy water in the bottom of the machine which hasn't drained and the "wash" light is still on. Looks like the dishes are clean but hasn't moved onto the rinse/dry part. Followed instruction in manual to drain it (hold start stop button till lights flash and should drain in 45 sec) but nothing happened.

GU1500XTLS3 Periodically won't start. Dishwasher has power because pressing cancel causes dishwasher to start draining (even though there is no water). Door switch works because opening door prevents starting drain cycle. No other button on control panel will work except for the 'air dry' / 'lockout' button. Turning off circuit breaker for 15-30 minutes and then turning circuit breaker back on seems to fix the problems but only for a couple uses and then it stops working again. Need ad

I have a Kenmore dishwasher model #17519200. I loaded it last night as usual and closed the door. I pressed the wash cycle I wanted and pressed the start button. I heard it starting to fill with water as usual. After it filled with water it should have gone into the wash cycle mode but it just started making a buzzing noise for about a minute or two then just stopped. I pressed cancel to drain it and it drains fine. I have kept trying to re-run it but it just does the same thing I described.
