Restarting The machine came up with an F2 problem, which was most likely caused by the kitchen sink blocking. Have cleaned all the filters and the pipes, but the machine will not restart seems to be stuck on the F2 and just returns to that after going through all the instructions.

Re: Restarting

You need to remove the lower toe kick plate, then remove the guard plate behind that (will tak a t-20 or t-15 torx bit to do this) and drain the water that has most likely collected under there caused by the sink backing up. You can use a wet vac or just soak it up with a towel. If there is no water down there, and you do not hear the drain pump run for a few seconds when you start a cycle, teh you need a drain pump. It is located on the left behind the plate you just removed, and just twists out. look at the new one to see where the locking tab is. Good Luck!

What do i do to fix error code OE on my LG dishwasher

Based on what it mentioned on the LG website it is an error indicating a drainage error. The solution might be to clean the drain filters at the base, check drain hose under kitchen sink and behind dishwasher for kinks or blockages. On make sure the kitchen sink drain is not blocked. Worst scenario is a clogged drain pump. you will have to provide the model number for any further analysis.

Why is water left in the machine after cycle

Most dishwashers leave some water at the base at end of cycle.

The problem is there if a large quantity of water is left when the cycle is complete. The most common is blocked filters in the pump sump. If this is clean then the next problem could be outlet hose or the kitchen sink waste pipe. Make sure the kitchen side is clear. If all this is ok then the blockage could in the pump itself. It will look similar to this item.

Check the door is closing correctly, Check the seals on the door also.

Note: Electricity can cause serious injury even Death.
Isolate your power supply from the mains switchboard.
Switch off and Unplug your appliance from the wall socket before attempting any repairs.

After Isolating your appliance from the main switchboard,
Check the filters for water in and out of the dishwasher. make sure you have turned the power off first.
Check the outlet trap under your sink, if this is where the dishwasher drains to... (the drain pipe in your sink) this could be blocked and is easy to take off and clean out.
This could be blocked / obstructed with buildup grime from the dishwasher.
After cleaning the filters/ Checking the water supply and restarting the Dishwasher and you get the same error message you will need to call a serviceman to analyze the problem further. DO NOT attempt to dismantle the Dishwasher yourself unless you are a registered electrician or a qualified serviceman.
If its still under warranty call the manufacturer or the store it was purchased from, they can arrange a serviceman for you.
Good luck and Take Care

The water doesnt seem to be pumping away even though I can hear the sound of the pump

If water is not going away then it is likely the drain hose is blocked, the filter plate is blocked or the kitchen sink drain is blocked. check the garbage disposal unit if used in the kitchen sink has been operated and clear of rubbish before you operate dishwasher. Need make and model number of dishwasher to get a better idea.

Water is not getting drained from the botom of the machine


There are several possibilities as to why water isn't draining from your washer:

1. Blocked drain filter
The filter is usually at the bottom of the wash compartment. You didn't state which model of dishwasher you have, so please refer to your user manual for instructions for cleaning your filter. If you don't have a manual, please post back here with your dishwasher brand and model number for information on cleaning your filter and where to download a manual if one is available.

2. Blocked/kinked waste hose
Check the waste outflow hose at the back of the washer for any kinks or other damage. Also remove the hose where it attaches to your sink (or waste outlet) and check for any blockages both in the end of the hose and at the sink attachment. If there is a lot of dirt in the hose, it may be blocked somewhere further back.

3. Blocked waste disposal / sink trap / waste outflow
Make sure your sink is draining efficiently. Clean as necessary

4. Faulty waste pump
If all of the above check out, you may have a faulty pump. Please post back for further advice regarding this after completing the above checks.

I have a single drawer f&p dishwasher drawer, and it does not empty after a cycle, leaving approx 15.. of water in the bottom. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks. mark

If you have a single drawer unit, then most likely cause is the drain is blocked at the kitchen sink end.

IF that is not an issue, then the filter plate and drain sump need to be cleaned.

Water flooding out

Hi KellyW,


The dishwasher drain hose may be clogged.  When the dishwashr starts up can you hear the water running into the Sink faucet drain. If not inspect the hose that attaches to the Sink Drain for restrictions.  Also in the bottom of the dishwasher you should have a filter.  If this filter is clogged you cannot expel water.  Clean the filter.
