Hi, it seems you have a drainage problem. Try to reset the machine, or start a new cycle. It should start draining straight away. If not, listen carefully to see if the dishwasher is making a huming noise. If it is then the waste pump is blocked. If not it might need a replacement pump.

Displays E1 code. water is on

Hi there Dolly, error code E1 relates to water leaking. Its the code the machine displays when the flood switch in the bottom of the machine activates. The flood switch activates when the bottom of the machine gets filled with water from a leak. I surgest you have a look underneth the machine for signs of water. I hope this helps regards Gary.

The power is on the cycle light is on but on the right the first two lights are flashing together. help zanussi aqua pulse de 6744 s

Hi, the first thing the dishwasher does is fill with water, so this sounds like a Anti Flood water pump problem this is just behind the water pipe that feeds the clean water into your machine, one thing to check is if the machine is empty of water at the moment, if the machine has water in the bottom then it could be the Drain Pump.

LG dishwasher error code E1

E1 is a code that the dishwasher displays after detecting a leak. There is a sensor on the pan at the very bottom of the unit. Take the bottom front panel off, look under the unit at the hose coming off the pump and your fill line to be sure no water is dripping. Run the unit in a wash cycle while doing this if possible.

De error code

"dE" means that the door hasn't been closed properly. Check the inner seals of the washing machine particuarly at the bottom where water can get clogged. Also check the rubber seal around the front door to see if it has popped out or out of alignment. Also, "DE" in full letters can mean that the drain needs to be cleaned. Switch off the washing machine, pull out the flap on the bottom LH front of the machine, find the water tube and drain the water out of the LG. Then unlock and inspect the actual plastic tray/grid when twisted to unlock and pull out. There should also be a "drain" function on the main dial as a general maintenance option. Make sure you do this to keep your machine going.
Dont forget to rate this please if this solution works. Many thanks.

"E 1 code error

E1 is a drain error. On the unit prior to mar 07 LG had a problem with wires breaking in the door. Turn off power supply, remove door panel and look for wires stuck in the insulation. Check continuity of the wires, if broken, splice and tape. Place insulation between black insulation and wires to prevent reoccurence.

"E 1 code error

The fault is that the anti flood device is activating, you have a leak somewhere in the base of machine. Regards Engineer
