Having problems with your LG Dishwashers ?

I have a LG LD 2140WH diswasher, it only works for 2 min then give a OE error code. what can be wrong


Answers :

The possible reasons could be
1. If the drain hose is kinked, water will not drain properly. Kinks will also catch food debris as it passes, clogging drain hose. Straighten any kinks or bends in the hose. Make certain that drain hose does not exceed 10 feet for proper drainage.

2. Check the drain air gap anytime the dishwasher is not draining properly. if the air gap is clogged the unit will not drain. The air gap is not part of the dishwasher. It is located on the sink and attached through the drain hose and garbage disposal. Not all homes are required to have an air gap installed.

3. Food residue or particles can prevent proper draining of dishwasher. Remove bottom rack and check unit for food debris or items that may have fallen into the bottom of the unit. Remove any items or food debris that may be preventing proper drainage.

4. If the unit is not leveled properly, OE Error may occur. Use a level to check sides and top of unit. if the unit is not level, adjust the leveling legs in the front and back (use leveling kit). Also check the mounting brackets. If one is tightened more than the other, it will offset the cabinet.

* Note: To adjust leveling legs on the front, use a 1/4" square drive wrench. Turn clockwise as needed to adjust level. To adjust rear legs, use a standard Phillips head screw driver. On the left side rear, turn the screw counterclockwise to lower the leg and raise the rear. To adjust right side rear, turn the adjusting screw clockwise to lower the leg and raise the rear of dishwasher. Using a level while adjusting the legs will help aid in proper leveling.
Usually the pump or filter is blocked check the pump filter first.

E3 Error Hi My dishwasher is showing error E3, which the user manual states "The appliance is not able to pump out the water.", however, other E3 error states a heating issue. The dishwasher does in fact heat the water but generates the E3 error after 10 minutes or so, then pumps out the water from the dishwasher. I'm a little confused as to what the issue is here and what part I would need to rectify the problem. Any advise you could give would be greatly appreciated. Kind regards


The E3 error is a result of water temperature not getting to a nominal value within a particular time. This could be caused by several factors like heater faulty, wash pump not working well, wash arms not circulating water as required. Need model nu ... Smeg Dishwashers

OE Error We have LG dishwasher which gives an OE error. This was an error 6 months ago and this was under warranty. They had to change the pump. Now it is not under warranty. I checked for clogging in the drain pipe where it connects to the garbage disposal. Could not find a problem. This dishwasher is nothing but trouble. Any ideas/suggestions?


You do not have an "OE" error, it is actually a "DE" error. (Drain error) If after 5 minutes of drain time the pump motor RPM's haven't gone up the dishwasher knows that there is still water in the tub and throws the "DE" error. Often times the pro ...

One day the diswasher was working fine...the next time it turned it on it ran for about 3 min. then shut off and seemed to have no power. I checked the breaker...it was fine. A few days went by and all of a sudden the lights were blinking on the panel. So I pushed the cancel drain button. The water drained out and I then proceeded to load the dishwasher and turn it on again thinking it was just a fluke when it shut off earlier in the week. It did the same thing...ran for about 3 min and then shu

We are having a problem with our LG Dishwasher. The machine is washing for about half an hour and then will stop and report an E1 error. According to the user manual this means "Water leakage in Hose connection" or "Water is leaked by damages". We have checked the diswasher's water connections and can't see any water leaking out. We have also cleaned the filers and checked the spray arms but that has not made any diffrence. Any suggestions what this error means and what we can try to resolve it

My Bosch diswasher is hanging up in the cycle (at 102 mins. in normal cycle and 38 mins in quick cycle). I hear what sounds like a one second pumping of water into the sink area, a pause, and then another one second pumping of water, on and on, but there's no progression beyond this point. One possible cause: a few weeks ago someone turned off the hot water at the heater and another person tried to run the dishwasher. The dishwasher did not function because it could not get hot water.
