    What specific model number please....thank you

  • Dan Todd May 11, 2010

    Is there any water on the floor or in the cabinet where the drain hose is connected to the waste pipe?



    You should be able to go to your manufacturer's site and look for their download section to obtain an operator or service manual for your model number.



    This will probably download in a pdf format so you will need Acrobat Reader (free) and the latest version is 9.

Tried to take off the drain hose, but could not get it off the back, only by the disposal. I turned if off and on about 6 times and ran the delime cycle with lots of limeaway. It got the E5 error on the delime cycle, but it worked the next time I tried to run it.
The manual does say to turn it off and on as it drains out the water. Takes a while as it has to heat up the water each time.

Samsung error E5


I don't know about a E5 error; are you sure it's not a 5E error? That means a drain error or "water not draining" error. Check the drain pump and drain hose for an obstruction. If that's okay, and the dishwasher drains water, then you probably have a bad ECS sensor.

I have a PD code on a Hobart LXI dishwasher. What does that mean


PD is not an error code. It shows that when it draining water out shortly after power-up and when shutting down. If it seems to be showing "PD" longer than usual, it means the dishwasher's control circuitry believes there is still water in the tank, due to a faulty water level probe, most like the one under the lift-out screen. It has a plastic body with a metal probe coming out the center.

There is also a dual probe at the rear of the machine, but I believe the dishwasher uses the front probe to determine when to stop draining the machine during "PD" - most likely meaning "Power Drain" or "Power Draining".

If you are not seeing any E- codes (E1, E2, E3, etc.) then these water level probes are likely just fine and the "PD" is appearing normally, as it should during draining conditions.

E5 everytime we run the wash


Try running the drain hose into a bucket next to the machine. If it drains Ok, look for the restriction in your plumbing. If it won't drain into the bucket, look for a closed drain valve, open fill valve, bad middle or top probe, check power at drain connector ( it's DC volts from the bridge rectifier in the top drawer on the relay board.. Basically, water is at top probe at beginning of rinse, or it didn't drain down after the wash. Drain hoses can kink from hot water if not routed well.
