Question about Lofra Kitchen Ranges

Open Question

My Lofra lod6001 dishwasher displays E4 error code. My builder has checked all the drainage hoses & all are fine & unkinked. We can make the dishwasher drain when we add water to it so initial problem seems to be fixed but we just cannot remove the error message so can't start a wash cycle

SOURCE: whirlpool dishwasher drainage problem..

This sounds like a bad timer. The timer is what tells the pump to drain at specified times. If it gets a bad contact, that timed cycle won't happen.

PS: Do you know for sure that the drain is occurring in mid-cycle? If not, you may just have an obstruction in the drain and/or anti-siphon valve (where the hose connects under the dishwasher.

SOURCE: Not starting wash cycle

Typically this means that there has been a water leak of some sort and there is water in the lower base pan. This is the large white plastic base that the dishwasher sits on.

If you remove the toe kick and look back past the fill valve on the extreme left side of the dishwasher about 6 to 8 inches from the front you will see a red stick that goes straight up and down. This is a mechanical linkage that activates the drain feature. Be careful as there are live connections here.

This stick rests on a round piece of Styrofoam that acts as a float. If there is water present it will cause the stick to lift and the dishwasher will go into drain. The source of the leak will have to be isolated and corrected. Most likely it is the fill float assembly as referenced at the end of this post.

If the stick is not in the upright position then there is possibly an issue with the switch mechanism itself.

You will have to pull the dishwasher out from beneath the cabinet and remove the panel covering the left hand side. If it is a full panel then there are a couple of screws holding it on from the front through side trim as viewed when the door is open if it is a half panel then it can be removed by removing the large torx screw on the lower right as seen when facing the panel.

If there is a problem with the switch then the entire mechanism should be replaced.

Try the following link to a picture for reference. It is upside down as compared to the installed one:

SOURCE: dishwasher time E4

Actually, I wanted to update this thread - I totally forgot about it until Vincent13 posted - but in fact we resolved it - the dishwashers adjustable legs weren't even - if the dishwasher isn't in effect perfectly flat then this message (E4) displays. Correcting the legs to steady the machine and make it parallel with the floor meant we have not had the same problem since. Thanks!

SOURCE: Hi! We just installed our LG LDF8812WW built in

I actually own an LG LDF8812 myself, except mine is stainless steel, not white. So be it. :-)
Anyway, it sounds like you have just unboxed the unit and it is brand new, not just new to you. I am also assuming that you have this dishwasher connected to an Air Gap valve which is connected to the garbage disposal. Please reply if I am wrong.
Because it is (apparently) new, the first thing I would check is that any water is draining from the unit. A common problem on new installations is that the knockout inside the neck of the garbage disposal unit. A quick way to test that is begin the dishwasher filling, then open the door and press the two buttons that give you Cancel. Hold for three seconds and the DW will begin to drain. Being careful of the hot water that should be draining into the kitchen sink via the disposal, but watch for water to come flowing with a healthy stream - not wimpy.
Please reply with what you have found and correct my assumptions that I got wrong. Good Luck!
OH, if the problem is not something at the end of the drain hose, before you try to crack the unit open (and possibly void your waranty) dial the number on in the user guide and schedule a service call asap. Have your proof of purchase available.

Lg d/washer about 8yrs old Oe code. Checked grey wire thiery. Cleaned hose filter etc. Was working fine moved house.Whats next.


A drainage problem causes "OE" to be displayed on the digital display panel. The drain hose is likely kinked, clogged or frozen. Inspect the hose and remove kinks. Unclog the hose, if needed. Replace the hose if the problem is not resolved. If the dishwasher still does not drain,

E4 error code comes up when you turn on dishwasher


Hello.

This code means an error code. That the
dishwasher electronic control has detected a condition it needs to check. When you see a code, follow these steps to solve the problem:
  • Press "Stop/Clear" to clear the display and stop the beeping if any.
  • Reprogram the dishwasher.
  • If the code still displays, turn off the power to the dishwasher at your breaker box and wait five minutes and clean all part (area) that are open to water carefully before turning it back on.
Thanks for using fixya.

Water is not draining.... OE symbol appears on display. Checked the connection up to sink and drainage out to garbage disposal. everything seems fine there!


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

OE is a drain error and is displayed when the washer is unable to drain water. Please check the drain hose and drain pump filter by removing the bottom front access panel for any clogs to clean the error. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Error code E4 is on our display of our KDW243A dishwasher - what does this mean please?


Error code E4 means there is an overflow. Water is probably trapped. If you get error code E4, just tilt the machine back about 45 degrees and let the water drain out. It should come out on both sides. Then, you should be good to go.

E4 error after attempting to fill and get to temp


This is what I found for the E4 code...hope this helps...and thanks for rating my effort...The Fang.


Machine won't fill or won't fill high enough(LX18, LX30 display shows "E0," "E2," "E3," or "E4")

1.Low water pressure — check for clogged hose strainer; check that site water pressure meets minimum flow pressures.
2.Make sure probes are clean.
3.No water pressure — main water supply valves may not be working.
4.Drain valve open - turn machine off to drain machine, then on. Repeat twice (this assists in clearing any drain valve obstructions). Wait for machine to reach READY mode and press WASH. Slowly open door several seconds later and note water level. Close door; 30 seconds later, open door slowly and check that water level is the same as it was. If not, repeat the
OFF-ON procedure.
5. Delime machine.

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?


Hi,
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. 
else you need to REPLACE THE PCB POWER CONTROL BOARD
Good Luck!!!

I have a kenwood KDW12SL3A. The Drain got blocked at the dishwasher end, and I have now unblocked and tested the drainage but have still got an E4 error come up. how do I reset this?


Just got one of those at weekend and had e4 code-looked up on here and gor tis solutionwhich sems to work!

To clear the fault you need to remove the two baskets from the dishwasher.

Slide it out from under the worktop and lean it forward to about 45 degrees.

If it is already full of water, turn on the power whilst pushing the programme button, this sets up a pump out program
