90% of the time you get an E1 error code is because the drain hose is not properly installed between the LG dishwasher and the drain. The hose should connect to an Air Gap valve (almost free at any hardware store) but in a pinch, raise the drain hose near the drain and attach the hose to the bottom of the counter top under the sink. Is should rise almost 30 inches between the dishwasher and the drain or the water WILL siphon out of the dishwasher as soon as the wash or rinse cycle begins (and take 5 minutes before the water gets low enough the cause the E1 error.
Good Luck!

Bosch dishwasher actual runtime versus indicated runtime.


The usual discrepancies with run times is due to water heating time.
For example, your dishwasher may be estimating run time + time to heat the water from cold.
If your dishwasher is connected to hot water instead of cold, it will skip the majority of the heat cycle and adjust the time accordingly.
On the other hand for other people, their dishwasher brands may say "50 minute wash" but this does not take into account heating time, so wash can be anything up to around 70-80 minutes.

Does it fill with water? I would guess a fill/ drain/ heating problem. See if you can eliminate any of those.

I have purchased a house with the single door dishwasher and it takes forever to wash - about two hours - what could be the problem?


Check your program settings. If wash quality is good, it's OK. Check your inlet water has sufficient pressure! Refer user manual

How do I reset miele dishwasher - drain pipe now unblocked but will not commence cycle


Hi there,

Well first of all you can check that the stopcock is opened fully or whether the water inlet hose is kinked. Check that the water inlet filter is not clogged and clean it, if necessary, as described in the operating instructions. Check that the drain pump is not clogged.

Reset the error message as follows: To cancel the error message, turn the rotary selector switch to "Stop/End" or press the "Start/Stop" switch for approx. 5 secs. Then switch the appliance off and then back on again. 

Good Luck!!

Thanks for using FixYa!!

Doesn go thru cycle


This could be one of several faults- is the washpump windings overheating and cutting out the thermal overload? check for heat in pump body, is touchpad failing intermittently or is power card faulty? Try these and let me know how you get on, Colin

I have a dishwasher that only works intermitently...


most fault codes are 10, 20,30.........90 not familar with c2. ther is a fault earky on in a prog where if the pressure switch does not retun to empty the prog stops and displays 10 or 30. the pipe leading from the front of the sump to the pressure switch can sag. tieing it up to stop the sag can cure this..
