You have to have between 20 and 120psi water pressure- if you don't machine will not fill properly-possibly even over fill. start at the hoses and make sure water is coming out of them-if you have good flow there- its probably your fill valve which is what the hoses connect to on the machine- there are some good appliance parts web sights that can help you with parts and advice=cheers Denny

What could be the problem on my Samsung DMR57LFS dishwasher with an E9 error after the low-level sensor is cleaned but the error still exists?


This is an exhausting procedure you have described here. Have you checked the float in the low water reservoir is actually working.

Two possibilities: the water is coming in under pressure through a solenoid valve that is not fully open or the pressure pump is whining on its bearings.

Display shows FL Kenmore Calypso top loader stopped in the middle of the wash cycle and shows FL. kindest regards ,Amie


LF Error code: LF stands for long fill and occurs when the water level does not change for a period of time after the valves are turned on.

All washers are designed to operate with a water supply pressure of 20-100 PSI. When the pressure drops below 20 PSI the washer can have the following problems:

* Slow Fill- low water pressure reduces the speed at which water flows into the machine.
o Verify the pressure at all other water sources in the house (i.e. sinks, showers, etc..). If you find other places where the pressure is low, the problem is not with the machine but with the water supply.
* Continuous Fill- The valve may not fully seat under 20 PSI which would allow for a constant flow even when the machine is not supposed to be filling.
o Contact the water company to verify the pressure being supplied to the house.
* dispenser- Needs a minimum amount of pressure to function. May dispense constantly, at the wrong time, or not at all.
o A plumber may need to be consulted if the pressure is found to be too low.

Things you can check :

* Are the Hot and Cold water faucets turned on
* Are the water hoses kinked
o Make sure all the hose are straight and able to flow water
* Are the screen inside the water valve plugged
o Inlet valve should be free of debris and rust.
o Turn off water and remove the inlet hoses from washer.
o Remove any accumulated film or particles.
o Assure rubber washers are in the end of each inlet hose.
o Reinstall hoses, turn on water and check for leaks.

Error codes can be caused by a Power Surge or other electrical anomaly,attempt to return the washer to operation by following the Hard Reset procedure below.

1. Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.
2. Reconnect the unit to the power source by turning the breaker back on or plugging the unit back into the wall outlet.
3. Press the Pause/Cancel/Stop button twice to clear the display.
4. Start a short cycle to check the operation of the machine by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the machine starts

The pump goes on and off repeatedly


The pump should only run if you are using water. If you have a leak it will cycle on and off. If it only cycling fast when you're using water, you may need an expansion tank, sometimes referred to as a bladder tank for newer style. If you have a "bladder" tank , the bladder may be leaking and lost it's air charge. This bladder will have an initial air charge, and when the pump runs it will compress the bladder even further. When the pump shuts off the bladder is compressed. When you begin to use water, mainly low flow like one faucet, the bladder will begin to expand expelling the water from the tank until the pressure drops below that of the pump pressure switch. This makes the pump start and stop fewer times.

Fan cycles on every few minutes.There is no demand and the burner doesn't come on but the exhaust fan cycles on for a few seconds every couple of minutes.


You're most likely getting a pressure wave (spike) that is generating momentary flow across the flow sensor. The heater is registering this "instant" flow and beginning its firing sequence. Once the flow dissipates, the unit then goes into a purge cycle. I'd recommend having your water pressure tested to make sure it isn't abnormally high (above 60 psi) or abnormally low (below 30 psi). Assuming the pressure is normal, you can use a pressure reducing valve or pressure regulator to absorb the spikes and stop the unit from cycling.

Lg dishwasher LDF model one week old makes a lot of noise


Not real sure about the 2H display , I'm inclined to believe it is showing the estimated time for the cycle. As far as the noise, I believe you are on the right track with the water theory, but without hearing it myself I'm not real sure. If it is in the very beginning of the cycle most dishwashers start the cycle with a drain or initial pump out cycle. This is designed to remove any leftover water etc from any previous cycle. Depending on how much water is left over it can make different sounds at the beginning of the cycle. If you have had the unit installed for a while, depending on water conditions(hardness,sediment silt etc.) it is possible that the screen on the inlet valve is clogged or your house water pressure to the valve may not be high enough to completely open the valve. It can be a little tricky to check these yourself, but you would have to turn off the water to the dishwasher check the screen in the valve and then check to see if you have enough water pressure and volume . If you have times when your water pressure might be lower(like when I am filling our koi pond at my house) the water pressure in the rest of my house is lower. At those times it might make some wierd noises while it is filling or might not fill to the proper level. I think I would check on those things before digging into disconnecting water lines and checking screens and stuff. Good Luck and reply back if you have more info that might help us narrow it down for you!
