Having problems with your LG Dishwashers ?

Will not drain read out is OE - LG Dishwashers


Answers :

On the display a D looks much like an O. You probably have a DE error code which indicates a drain problem.
If the water is not draining from your dishwasher, verify the following:
Check your drain line, make sure the drain hose is not kinked and is not blocked especially at the connection to the sink or garbage disposal. This is typically the reason that a dishwasher won't drain. Remove the hose and clear any clogs, then reinstall.

Verify that water from the sink drain is not making it's way into the dishwasher. I would recommend creating a high loop in the dishwasher drain pipe, which is attached to the sink drain, under the sink. The high loop can be fastened to underneath the countertop. This will prevent any water from entering the dishwasher from the sink; it also prevents the dishwasher drain water from making it's way back into the dishwasher.
Verify that the pumps drain impeller is working. You can reach the impeller from inside the dishwasher after removing the lower rack, spray arm, and arm support. This typically involves removing a few screws. Once upper parts are removed, inspect the drain impeller, which pushes the water toward the drain port, for any cracks or missing blades. If the impeller is defective, the water will not drain properly and you would need to replace it.
Verify that the drain valve is working; many are controlled with an electric solenoid that opens the valve, sending the water to the drain. There is a chance that the solenoid or the diverting lever could be stuck which would prevent the water to drain. If so, try to free up the solenoid and lubricate the lever. Otherwise the solenoid or pump assembly may have to be replaced.
Verify that the motor is turning/ working and verify that there is power to the motor. If the motor hums but doesn't turn, it may need to be replaced. Motors can get stuck if not used regularly. If the motor is defective, the water will not drain and you would need to replace it.
There are ways to test the pump and motor with a multimeter. If you are not comfortable with doing this, you may want to have a technician test it for you.

The ge profile dishwasher model PDW8280J10SS was purchased about 2 yrs ago. It was working fine up until Jan. 2009. It ran fine but the water stopped draining.

Hello! My dishwasher is a Bosch SHE-44C06UC.

Blanco dishwasher Hi. Saw your answer on the Blanco dishwasher. We have same problem. Dishwasher makes all the pump sounds it used to, but does not start to drain at cycle start, and then no water comes in. read the manual again and think we may have been washing up - ie sinks plugged. Could this have triggered something. You mentioned something about a "micro switch" could you tell me where would this be?. We have a BFDW 650 S. Thanks, Angie

Hi! We just installed our LG LDF8812WW built in dishwasher. We ran our first cycle and after the wash cycle the dishwasher displayed error code OE. I read that it meant there is a problem with the drainage, and to check the hose if it is kinked. Well, the hose is not kinked and we have no idea why it would have a problem with the draining. We have the hose set up per the installation instructions. How can we check to for something clogged? Any suggestions?

I have a Diplomat ADP 8520 dishwasher (possibly SMEG manufacture) which will not stop trying to empty. There are 4 leds lit reading left to right and it beeps. I have read on some forums about pressing the programme button 4 times or holding it down for ten seconds to clear the fault but neither of these solutions work. I thought maybe that the drain was blocked but I put the pipe directly into the sink and it empties ok, problem is, it does not stop.
