This is indicative of a bad impeller in the drain pump motor, it will most likely need replaced.

Make sure you check the drain filter for any loose coins or articles that may have been trapped and hitting against the drain pump impeller. If it is clear then the motor is indeed bad. Hope this helps, please rate my solution.

suggestion, i suspect you have got something in the wash pump or the pump impeller is breaking up this can cause a vibrating noise or it could be the rince pump.

Fan is noisy intermittently well after wash is finished


It depends on what model you have. The fan is usually operating when the dry cycle is on. The dry cycle can be quite long compared to the actual wash (which ends when the rinse water is drained out). The dry cycle uses the steam in the dishwasher to circulate around the dishes. The fan keeps running until the full cycle is complete. If you are hearing heavy noises when the fan is running, then the bearing of the fan maybe damaged and you need to replace the fan.

Drain Pump

If the dishwasher is loud during operation, the drain pump might be defective or might have some debris in it. This is a common problem.

Circulation Pump

If the dishwasher is loud during operation, and the noise is a continuous drone similar in speed to the circulation pump sound, it's likely that the circulation pump motor bearings have failed. Once this happens the circulation pump will have to be replaced, the bearings are not repairable.

Drain Impeller

If the dishwasher is loud during operation, the drain impeller might be broken, or there might be debris in the pump. Generally, to gain access to the pump the top of the pump housing will have to be removed.

Pump and Motor Assembly

If the dishwasher is loud the motor bearings, drain impeller or wash impeller might have worn out. All three of these components are part of the pump and motor assembly. It may be possible to replace one of the impellers, but the motor bearings cannot be repaired. In that case the pump and motor assembly will need to be replaced.

Wash Impeller

The wash impeller is a small, plastic blade. The motor spins the impeller forcing water through the spray arms to clean the dishes. If one or more blades has broken off of the impeller the dishwasher is loud. The impeller can also scrape against the pump housing if it is damaged, warped or bent.

Water Inlet Valve

The water inlet valve is an electrically controlled water valve. When it is new, the water inlet valve is very quiet. Over time, the diaphragm inside the valve deteriorates and deforms. This deformation interacts with the water rushing in and can cause a loud vibration, buzzing, squealing or other noises. If the dishwasher is loud during the filling cycle, replacing the water inlet valve may solve the problem.

Experiencing extreme vibration and noise with my LG WM2101H...sounds like a rocket is taking off everytime i wash something...it's on a pedestal, overflow pan and is located on the second floor...no...


This is actually pretty normal for newer LG front loaders. They've done a lot of work to isolate the vibration and noise from the spin cycle, but the higher RPM's have countered those improvements. Unless the manufacturer/technician can determine that something is actually wrong, you're probably going to need to install an anti-vibration pad under the washer pedistal to absorb most of the noise. It is very likely that the subfloor is actually amplifying the vibration into the "rocket" noise that you are hearing. Try installing Silent Feet anti-vibration pads or similar to prevent this amplification of the noise and vibration.

Vibration during spin cycle


Unless your front loader is set firmly on concrete and leveled to perfection, the force of a heavy wash load spinning in excess of 1000rpm will create a bit of vibration and noise.A firm footing is your best defense against to much movement.
Also due to the earlier movements during the spin cycle, the shocks that are used to dampen the spin cycle might have been broken or damaged.
If the problem persists inspite of proper levelling, please do check for the shocks or might have them replaced them for good.

Buzzing noise! when the


sounds like you have a problem with the water solenoids (the electronic controlled water valves) the buzzing is an indication that it is trying to open or close and unable to do so. an electric current creates a magnetic field pulling a spring loaded valve sealed inside a tube allowing water to pass. it starts buzzing when it can't pull the valve all the way and just vibrates.

FAULT CODE


AI got here after googling the same problem.
There are many reports of this "dHE" error - all with BRAND NEW MACHINES !

I rang LG in Sydney, Australia today and amazingly the girl on the phone said there are no known issues with this dryer
(In Australia the combo dryer is known as WD14700RD ) - 7kg washer / 4kg dryer.
Mine has same problem. Whenever the dryer is selected in the program, it stops after the wash phase and flashed dHE (or dHe, can't remember) and thats as far as it gets.

Its a tech, call out tomorrow to try & fix it.
Very poor LG, these are brand new machines, many reports of this problem from googling it but LG have no knowledge a problem.

This may end up being a recall or at the very least, some public announcement of this dHe problem with this washer.
New buyers beware ... It is a fault with brand new machines.
