Normal 0 Thanks to other info gathered from this site and a few quality hours with the washer, I solved this problem for myself.

I experienced the same problem. Did the same things. OE error Drain pump would not drain. Sounded like it was grinding a bit. Just not draining. Checked the strainer. Nothing. I found this link to the service repair manual which has easy to follow instructions on how to disassemble the washer and get to the pump. Removing the door and the pumps is really not that hard.

Don't be scared. I'm a novice and it was easy. Wear gloves. Lots of sharp edges. All you really need is a screwdriver and pliers to remove hose clamps.
Anyway, I got the the top cover off, removed the front door panel section and could easily access the drain pump. I first pulled off all the hoses. All clear. Disconnected the pumps (easy once I figured out the clip the pump unit slides into). Note there are 2 pumps - a circulation pump and drain pump (larger one). All clear. Reassembled. Still nothing.
Ran a few loads of wash manually draining after each cycle (to keep the wife happy with clean laundry). Yes, you can do laundry while waiting on the part to be delivered. Just get a bucket and drain the washer after each cycle - easier if you pull off the main drain hose and drain it that way versus the little emergency drain slow (slow!).
Became convinced it must be the drain pump so I ordered a new one for $50 here. repairclinic.com

Installed new pump and reassembled machine in about 20 minutes. Worked great. NOW HERE IS SOME ADVICE THAT MIGHT SAVE YOU THE $50 for a PUMP:

After replacing the pump, I was banging on the old one to see why the heck it stopped working. During the process, I figured out how to actually pull the pump apart. There is a rubber washer around the housing below the blade - pull on it hard enough and the pump slides apart. When it did - holy cow! It was filled with grimy sandy muck. I cleaned it all out, but did not feel like testing it to see if worked. So I likely have a spare should the new one ever go out.
Hope this helps.
Good luck.

LG drains and fills at same time.


This is caused by the " the flood" circuit at the bottom of the dishwasher that detects some water leak. Once this circuit detects any water on the bottom of the washer, it immediately switches the pump out circuit on. It consists of a polystyrene float coupled to a micro switch. You need to dry the bottom and then check for leaks (hose or hose clamp).

Have your service tech remove the door cover and check the wiring harness completely. Especially where it flexes at the bottom. LG had a problem on some of these models with the insulation degrading on the wirw. Replace the wiring harness and the motor again.

DISHES COME OUT WITH DIRT ON THEM


Your incoming water temp should be about 140 degrees. If not boost your water heater temp.
Check the dishwasher drain line. It should be tied up under the bottom of the sink to prevent sink water from backing down the drain into the DW.

LG Dishwasher - drain hose replacement


Hello, I have just installed a similar model, and took the side panel off to see how it was put together ;)

The drain hose goes in the back of the dishwasher, then loops up the right side (as you are looking at the front)(this is to act as a "trap" to keep sewer gases from coming back into your washer, I assume), and then connects to the drain pump under the washer.

In order the change the hose, you will need to remove the left side panel, and the bottom panel, and this will give you access to the entire hose....

Hope this helps!
