Please confirm the model number of this LG diswasher.
On recent LG units, the avaiable error codes are: IE OE E1 FE tE LE
The PE code is abnormal. Can you confirm.
I would expect to see the error OE if water is not fully pumped out. Remove the filter from the sump area beneath the bottom rack. Look closely for debris causing a blockage/lock. Please get back to me with your findings and ask more questions as needed.

I have an LG dishwasher that is stopping 4 minutes into the cycle and coming up with the code OE, have cleaned it and still having the same problem. When I start the cycle it sounds like there is water...


This sounds like the anti flood trigger that triggers the pump out pump. This device is a polystyrene float coupled to a micro switch that activates if any small amount of water is on the floor of the dishwasher (caused by leaky pipe / clamp). This will cause the machine to stop any function and only the pump out pump works, This is a safety feature of most dishwashers. Remove / dry the water and check if it continues ,...

So frustrated - LG dishwasher washes 5 minutes then shows OE code - have cleaned drains, sump pump, out let pipes. Still doing it. ONly 9 months old..... My old dishwasher worked for 10 years.......


Hi there Diane OE on your display relates to the water draining system (water is not pumped away). the diashwasher is not seeing the water drain away. Dishwashers start by draining before they take on fresh water. Start your dishwasher and listen for a pumping noise from the waste pump if you dont hear any noise it may be the pump is blocked or faulty. please advise if this helps kind regards gary.

I traced the fault to one resistor on the controller board and replaced it for R0.10. The original quote to repair was R1480.00! So I saved myself a handsome amount, no thanks to LG!

Have a bosch dishwasher Mod. No. SGI53A55AUSS installed March 2004. All filters clear, exit pump clear and working. Switch on washer can hear exit pump working but machine does not accept water to fill....


Hello,

You said you had water under the dishwasher,did you remove the lower panel below the door and check for water in the base frame as well. Bosch dishwashers have system in the base frame that detects water in base and cuts power off to every component except drain pump till it no longer sees the water in the base.

Hope this helps

The machine takes water and a minute later empties it out again with an error code E1. I opened it to see if any leaks anywhere as the diagnostic page puts this down to leaking pipe, but no leak found...


Hi salim talati,

The E1 you are seeing means Water Level in Drum lowering, this is likely a reduction in speed of the impeller on the Circulation Pump, which is responsible for pushing the water to the Spray arms.

It will have to be replaced, as it is a common spare that has to be replaced on L.G Dishwashers (lifetime expectancy: 12 - 18 Months) - Not very expensive.

Usually is about 20%-25% the price of a new Dishwasher. The Circulation pump is fitted to the sump. Part Number: 5859DD9001A or 5859ED1001A (Depending which one is in stock)

LG dishwasher model LDS4821- 16 months old- getting E1 error. Water leaking on floor. This happened before 3 months ago but then had no other problems with it until now. No other problems with this machine...


Hi ferrojennife,

The E1 you are seeing means Water Level in Drum lowering, this means there is a leak on one of the pipes. More likely it is the Circulation Pump, which is responsible for pushing the water to the Spray arms.

Model No. LD-12AW2: control panel flashin PE and not allowing machine to be set or start


The PE error code indicates that the machine has a water pressure sensing error.
Check and clean the filters on both sides of the inlet water line.
Good luck!

Error code LE and OE


The LG error code OE simply means “the pump is blocked”. Presumably the water isn’t being emptied properly. Check the exit hose, it may be clogged.
LE Code refers to a motor overload.Since the pump is blocked,the motor becomes inefficient in working.Once you get the pump cleared from blockages,I assure that you can get rid of these errors.Good luck with the machine.Please do post the results and comments.
