LG LD12AW2 Dishwasher overflowing

Have cleaned out the gunk in the small water reservoir that links to the pressure switch and cleaned the pressure swithc, but no luck. Still overflow. Whe i watch the water reservoir fill after going through the drain cycle first, it seems like the reservoir is only getting a small amount of water in it and then stopping - no way to trigger the pressure switch to do its job. What would be causing this?

    Hey there

    You have to pardon my ignorance on this one but i am assuming that the water inlet port is the white plastic fitting about 1/3 of the way up on the left hand side of the machine?

    I am having the same problem and can you give me a bit of an estimate on what it should cost to get it fixed ?

    I am in Perth and if you have a contact here I would happily use them because i think you give the free advice here is very commendable .....

    Thanks

    Steve

On the LG LD-12AW2 model, there is a float assembly just behind the wall where the water inlet port is located inside the unit.
When that float (or the micro-switch inside it) fails, water will continue to flow in without stopping . That causes the overflowing.
Post back here if you are looking for more specific guidance.
Good Luck!

Have an LG FRONT LOADER WASHING MACHINE THAT IS OVERFILLING


Make sure that you get the correct pressure switch and also check that the rubber hose that comes off the tub onto the pressure switch is completely clean inside. Any gunk that prevents the pressure build up in the tub, when water is being taken on, from going up the pipe to the switch will cause an overflow error FE.
This could also be a faulty water inlet valve, but more likely the switch.

Dishwasher starts to work but after 30 seconds stops and two lights start flashing on pannel


Ok so your dishwasher won't do anything... it justs sits there and "Hums" you can't make it respond to any controls, and the ONLY way to Stop it. is to unplug the unit, replugging back in it simply "Hums" again and will do nothing.
Now this happens because, the STOP Button, is pressed and the "Door Opened", during the Wash Cycle. This should NOT be done. You shouldNEVER TURN IT OFF MID-CYCLE. you should instead, Simply, pull on the handle, to Open the door, the system will take care of everything, after, you close it,and pick up where it left off. The turning OFF, makes the machine "Think" that a New Cycle, is going to be done, before the old one is finished, and resets itself to do it all again. But it still has water, that's not meant to be there so it must dump it out.
Now, the FIX. Take the Dishwasher, out, and tip over on it's side, tip to about a 45' angle. Water will come out from underneath, this is from a small "Overflow" reservoir. this reservoir has an "Anti-Flood" switch. The removing of this water will "Reset" this Switch, and allow the dishwasher to work again.
So what happens, is this, when the STOP button is pressed Mid-Cycle, the machine must "Dump" whatever water is still in the machine, into the "Overflow Reservoir". This water then causes the Anti-flood switch to jam, and this stops the machine, until it is reset,by the above method.Service manual below, if the above doesn't help. http://appliancejunk.com/ge/dishwasher/31-9137.pdf

I have the same problem. I turn on the water until it is past the small resivour, turn off the water, take off the clear tube, and then put a bendy straw over the hose entry. I then blow until the air bubbles up in the tub. This cleans it out for a while but it reoccurs Repair main taught me this trick but is not a perminant fix. Seems like a bad design that you can not clean this out somehow. Thinking I will just buy something other than a GE to replace.

Bosch SMS4012GB dishwasher. Refused to fill. Found tray full of water in base of unit. Mopped up water about 2 litres. Machine works but lower reservoir on the side of the machine with float switch...


An electric switch activated by air pressure. This device detects air pressure exerted on it through a flexible tube connecting it to part of a water tub.
When activated, this switch then opens an electrical circuit stopping further filling of water into the machine.. May also be called a PRESSURE SWITCH. if not activated definately it will cause overflow.

Check the wire harness to the pressure switch. or tap your float switch with finger tips may be it get stacked. if nothin happen replace the pressure switch.
Rate my solution if useful.

LG LD12AW2 leaking


The fill switch may be contaminated with soap or debris that makes it heavier and makes it float lower in the water which means more water is required to trip it. Try moving it manually and see if it is hard to move at the top of its travel.

LG WFT1022TP top loader washing machine


the system which controls water level is an air chamber with a small diameter pipe which goes to a pressure stat. when the correct level is reached, the pressure in the air chamber switches the pressure stat and cuts the water off. the things to look for are: gunge in the air chamber split in the pipe. faulty pressure stat to test, get a similiar length of small diameter pipe and connect it to the pressure stat instead. with the machine filling, blow gently into the pipe and see if the water intake cuts off
