Re: drainage problem

Sounds like you're getting back-flow from your sink where the dishwasher drain line is plugged into. You have to make sure the DW drain hose has a vacuum break in it. Sounds hard, but it's not. Look under the sink. See where the DW drain hose plugs into your plumbing (probably at the disposal)? If it angles downward and into the cabinet to your DW, that's the problem. It's siphoning water out of your sink (along with the chopped up food from the disposal) and into your DW. The fix for this is simple. Remove the drain hose from the plumbing under the sink. Then form an upside down "U" with the drain hose and firmly attach it to a stationary object under there (I always use the water supply plumbing to the faucet for this...) using whatever you have, good duct tape, wire ties, etc. Then reconnect the end of the hose back to the plumbing and you're done! Job time= < 15 minutes.

I have a new stainless steel Samsung dishwasher. It doesn't seem to be drying properly. Dishes and dishwasher still very wet after cycle is completed.


Your dishwasher has been designed to use a liquid rinse aid. Pouring a liquid rinse aid into the proper recepticle in your dishwasher when you add dish detergent greatly improves drying performance. You can further improve drying performance by selecting the Sanitize option, in addition to the other options you've selected, and increasing the water temperature.For Best Results, use Jet-Dry Turbo

Spots and film form in your dishwasher's rinse cycle, when detergents are already down the drain. FINISH® JET-DRY® Rinse Agent works in the rinse cycle, lowering the surface tension of water and causing it to sheet. Better rinsing results in less spots and film.

If these recommendations do not improve drying time, please contact Samsung Customer Care

Water remains in machine. Machine stops after a minute or so and diplays F11.

F11 means Drainage fault.

Water present in appliance and is not being drained off. The display shows Drain fault F11. The buzzer is activated for 2 minutes.

Background information:
After each drain pump step, the circulation pump operates for 2 seconds and heater pressure switch B1/13 checks the water level. If it is too high (large quantity of residual water remaining in the cabinet), the drainage time is extended. If, after a further check, the water level is still too high, then the program is interrupted, the fault code is saved and the drain pump is activated. Fault code F11 is also registered if heater relay 1K1 is not activated after the fault code F51 register check; see Section 080-3.18. Drain hose kinked. Remedy: Check the drain hose for correct positioning.

Cause: Drain blocked.
1. Clean the on-site drain.
2. Check the sump drain.
3. Check the filters.
4. Check the heater pressure switch and replace it if necessary.

Cause: Ball in non-return valve in sump has not opened (e.g., jammed).
Clean the non-return valve in the sump or replace it if necessary. Cause: Foreign objects in the drain pump.

Clean the drain pump and its impeller.

Cause: Drain pump defective.
1. Check the voltage supply to the drain pump.
2. If correct voltage is present, check the drain pump motor winding.
3. Replace the drain pump, if necessary.

Cause: Foreign objects in heater pressure switch.
Check the heater pressure switch for blockages and correct switching point.

Cause: Heater relay defective. Heater relay (coil or contacts) becomes defective during the drainage step (after fault code F51 register check).
Replace the heater relay.

Hope this helps to solve it.

The auto drainage isn't working properly

You will need to check the drain hose to make sure that you don't have a partial blockage. If you have an air gap check that to make sure it is not partially stopped up. If you don't have an air gap check to make sure your drain hose is not lower than your sink drain allowing water from the sink to drain back into the dishwasher.

Drain pump running when unit starts but no water to appliance

The machine probably has water in the base (not visibly in the machine, but in the base where the conponents are). Pull the machine out, sit the front on a large towel and holding the back of the d/w pull it towards you. Any water trapped in the base will drain out. It may be a fair amount as the flood safety switch will activate on approx 1.5 ltrs. Once you've cleared the water run a prewash or quickwash to check d/w. Hope this helps.

Doesn't drain; glasses have film; rinses with used, soapy water

The white film problem is hard water. There is a new product out called the dishwasher filtration system. It filters the water before it enters your dishwasher. It works amazing and has a money back guarantee. You will love the way your dishes look after the first load. It is also very affordable (like 70 bucks). Go to to find out more info.

Error code OE; dishwasher stops with error message 2 min into cycle, drainage seems OK, water doesn't appear to pump into machine - any advice?

The most common cause of an OE error code on a modern LG dishwasher is:
1. Blocked drain hose
2. Obstruction in the sump area (beneath the filter, which needs to be removed to check for onstruction)
3. Failing drain motor. 
Good Luck!!!

There is a drain hose that runs from your dishwasher to underneath your sink. (usually connects in right below the drain spout)

It sounds like this may have become clogged, or the sink drain is clogged causing the water to back-up in to the dishwasher drain hose.
