Will not drain and shows E6 error code

Dishwasher stops every ten or fifteen minutes and shows error 6. I keep restarting it to get through the programm. I keep cleaning out the filter to make sure there is no blockage. I have also tried pulling the dishwasher out from the wall to see if the drain hoses are getting kinked - but to no avail.

I had this problem and eventually found a small piece of mussel shell in the bottom part of the machine, it seems they are very sensitive to the tiniest fragment of debris.

Try this

"Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire dishwasher is showing you an "I20" error code. I have located that code and it is described as a drain problem that could be either your pump or control panel. I would recommend resetting you appliance, which can be done by flipping the household circuit breaker off for roughly ten minutes.

Thank you for your post, Cathie Sanchez!

I understand that your Frigidaire dishwasher is displaying error code "S" and will not restart. The error code "S" usually stands for sanitize, this could also be a miscommunication within the control panel. I would recommend performing a reset on your dishwasher and you can do that by disconnecting power from your dishwasher for roughly ten minutes. If you continue to experience issues with the error code I would suggest having a professional technician out for proper diagnosis and repair. Hope this is helpful. -Matt

I get an Er code 5 on our Dishwasher and it keep restarting in the rinse mode

Thank you for your post, friend!

I see you are having trouble with your Frigidaire dishwasher and you are receiving error code "5". However, it appears "5" is an invalid error code. May I have you model number please? Typically you can locate your serial tag on the inside wall on the left hand side. With this information I can better assist you with pinpointing the issue.

In the meantime, let's attempt resetting your dishwasher. You can do this by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker to the off position for roughly ten minutes. This usually clears false error codes. -Matt

Dishwasher error code P0

Hello Alan Gibson - Are you certain the error code is P0? This manufacturer does not have an error code P0 for any dishwasher or other units. Could you please try reprogramming the unit by flipping the household circuit breaker off or unplugging it? Wait approximately ten minutes and restart dishwasher. If the unit is experiencing a generic communication error, it should be follow by another fault code. What is the error code? If it continues to display P0 then consult a professional to move forward accurately.

LG dishwasher model LDF6920WW 1 1/2 years old approximately. Suddenly stops a minute or so into cycle (it drains remaining water and fills with new water then get LE error). When I open the door at the...

The manufacturer has assigned this error or fault code to indicate a problem with the water circulation pump motor. Turn the appliance off for 30 minutes to allow it to cool. Then, restart the cycle. If the error code returns check the wiring to the pump motor. Also, if the wash impeller is broken this error can appear. If the impeller and wire harness check out, and the code keeps returning, you will probably need to replace the pump and motor assembly.
