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!

Showing error E5


E5 is error code 5.
It means the water is not filling correctly (or the sensors are not noticing the fill correctly). Make sure the water supply is on and hoses are not kinked. If all water supply is ok, then the valve(s) may be bad. They are expensive so best checked and replaced by a technician.

Furnace kicks on and heats up for 5 min. then will shut down - no flame - main blower will run for a few min and then the whole cycle will start again. flame sensor checked ok with meter at approx 5.0


What is your temperature rise during the 5 minutes it does run? Could be overheating and kicking out on limit switch. Watch the diagnostic light for a code. (3 blinks means this, 4 blinks means that etc.)

E50 fault


An imbalance during the spin cycle has occurred. It's possible that the appliance has been overloaded, or the load is causing the drum to be unbalanced.
If the machine has been used repeatedly in a row, which can cause the motor to be overloaded, leave it to cool down for approx. 30 min. and then try again.
If the problem continues to occur, there is a problem with the motor. This has to be repaired by a Service Engineer.

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.

Problem with the Samsung Washing Machines The machine keeps coming up with the message HEI 10x


Here is a list of errors for your machine.

I hope they help you.


SAMSUNG WASHING MACHINES, ERROR FUNCTIONS

When an error occurs, the alarm noise will sound and the error code displayed in the program window. Listed below is a series of error codes you may or may not see for your model of Samsng Washing Machine. The errors are shown as blinking in O.5 second intervals until the error status has cleared. In this case, all the driving devices are turned off until the error is cleared.

1. WATER SUPPLY ERROR - Display shows 4E.

Water Supply Error occurs when water level frequency does not show changes more than 100Hz or water is not supplied up to the preset water level after 10 Minutes or more at the time of initial water supply. The error status can be cleared by turning the POWER switch OFF and back ON.

2. WATER DRAIN ERROR - Display shows 5E.

5E is displayed if the water level frequency detected is 25 KHz or less in the initial phase of the UNB -detecting cycle. The Water Drain error can be cleared by turning POWER SW OFF and back ON.

3. OVER-FLOW ERROR - Display shows oE.

Over-Flow error occurs when the water level is too high. It can be cleared by turning POWER switch OFF. Water is drained prior to POWER switch OFF. The tub is drained for 2 minutes if a frequency of more than 25 KHz is detected.

4. UNBALANCE ERROR - Display shows UE.

Laundry load is unbalanced, manually loosen any tangled laundry.

If only one item of clothing needs washing, such as a bathrobe or jeans, the final spin result might be unsatisfactory and an UE error message will be shown in the display. Unbalance error is cleared by POWER switch OFF and back ON.

5. WATER HEATER ERROR - Display shows HE, HE1.

HE, HE1 is displayed if the water temperature rises by 7 C or more in 1 Min or by 2 C or less 20 Min after heating process has started. The error can be cleared by turning POWER switch OFF.

6. WATER PRESSURE SWITCH ERROR - Display shows 1 E.

* Generated Frequency Signal of WATER LEVEL (WIL) SIW (KHz)

Normal Level = Abnormal W/L Frequency
Low Level = 30.00 Khz
High Level = 15.00 Khz

If the same signal is detected for more than 5 seconds, it is a PRESSURE SWITCH Error. When this error occurs the drain pump will operate for 3 min. and the display will show 1 E indicating a pressure switch error.

7. ABNORMAL WATER TEMPERATURE ERROR- Display shows cE.

e.g. If the water temperature is 50 C or more, during a Delicate or Wool cycle.

At the time of initial water supply, if the water temperature is not appropriate, the display will show cE. This error can be cleared by POWER SWITCH OFF.

8. WATER LEAKAGE ERROR - Display shows 11 E.

Water Leakage error occurs when the water drains naturally, (by leakage) after the washing program starts.

9. THERMISTOR ERROR - Display shows tE

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!!
