LG LDF6920 Dishwasher. Drain pump turns on while filling...constantly!

My dishwasher has been doing this for some time. When you start the normal wash cycle the first cycle in the program is that the drain pump kicks on to remove any access water. Next the dishwasher begins to fill with water. About half way through the filling cycle the drain pump kicks on for no reason (while filling!). Doesn't make any sense. If I open the door during the fill/drain cycle...everything stops (of course). When I close the door and allow the dishwasher to continue it's cycle...it will fill properly then go through the rise cycle as it should. Recently this problem has been surfacing during program drain/fill operations throughout the wash cycle...which then kicks an E1 code (water leakage). Water isn't leaking, it's being pumped out while filling. Any help would be apprecaited!!

My LG dishwasher when I turn it on it drains the water, then it fills it up with water, about 1 min. later gives me the code E1 and drains the water again...


LG Dishwasher Displaying Fault Code E1 LDF7810BB/01 LEAKAGE ERROR // Excessive pump motor RPM due to water leakage
The manufacturer has assigned this error or fault code to indicate that when the drain pump is running it is not experiencing the back pressure it expects. This is usually an indication that there is a water leak in the drain system. Check all hoses and connections. Check under the dishwasher for any major leak. If all checks out, be certain there is a proper loop in the drain hose to prevent siphoning. Finally, if the problem persists, the drain pump itself might be defective.

Dishwasher wont fill up with water


When you start the dishwasher you have probably noticed that it first drains water and is very important to hear that drain pump running all the time or stops after a while? Why?
If the drain pump runs constantly then the fault is in the phase of "drain water" or is activated anti-flood system. Reset point of pressostat is not reached after max. 120secs. Programme stop and can be continued after error remedy by pressing the programme key.

If the pump is running for a while and then stops, then the fault is in phase "fill up water". Switchpoint of pressostat is not reached
after max. 60 secs.

Usually built-in dishwashers has anti-flood system that responds in the event of water in the bottom of the dishwasher. Such a case, find and repair water leaks.

LG drains and fills at same time.


This is caused by the " the flood" circuit at the bottom of the dishwasher that detects some water leak. Once this circuit detects any water on the bottom of the washer, it immediately switches the pump out circuit on. It consists of a polystyrene float coupled to a micro switch. You need to dry the bottom and then check for leaks (hose or hose clamp).

Lg dishwasher ldf7932st motor starts but doesn't work


Is the water turned off? Dishwashers normally start a wash by emptying any waste water tipped into them during loading. Problem could therefore be a blockage somewhere, most likely in pump inflow under the filters in bottom of machine. Lift these out to check. Also check your sink drain isn't blocked and preventing the water from being pumped out.
