Did any water spill out under the machine? Some of them have sensors that wont let it start if they get wet.

SOURCE: Dishwasher fills with water... wont wash

usually if the motor is not kicking in then it is a blocked/seized wash motor or a broken wire somewhere from the timer to the motor. either will mean a stripdown. try checking out the motor first.

Since water doesn't drain out ,it could be a clogged in the drain line. Often the problem is at the point where the drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drain line. You should remove this line and clear it form any debris in the hose or the hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again. Good luck!

If you are still trying to sort out this issue try the following.

From what you say then it is most likely the aqua sensor on the side of the dishwasher. The gurgling sounds that you hear are likely the drain pump running and the un-drainable water sloshing in the sump.

Verify that there is actually water going to the dishwasher( Basic step but often overlooked)

Next the inlet valve will have to be checked. This is the part where the water line from the house connects to the dishwasher, under the toe/kick panel. Remove power from the dishwasher. Disconnect the dishwasher electrical connections (2 wires) to the inlet valve and connect it (carefully to 110 V power) using a jumper wire. With 110V power the valve should open and water will flow into the dishwasher, if not then the fault is in the inlet valve.

If this checks fine then the fault is likely in the aqua sensor...

On the outer left side (viewed from front) there is a panel, Behind this panel there is a small clear(of light blue) plastic mechanism with hoses and wires attached( There is usually a yellow disk at the top about 6cm in diameter) this is a float and sensor assembly there is tells the control the water level and works as an emergency drain if there is an issue. There will be a red stick protruding downward to the base and a Styrofoam float on which the stick rests. This is a pan overflow sensor if the stick is too high the unit will go into drain and cut off the fill valve power. The yellow disk is a diaphragm which senses water height. This unit can become stuck with wear and hard water.

Every time I went to start the dishwasher it went "Ding Ding". I could press every button, turn it on and off OK, change cycles etc. I guessed the sound maybe because it thought the door was open, so set to work pulling it apart. This is how I fixed it.

Make sure you do most of this with the power off - there is probably mains voltage inside!

After pulling off the the cover of the door (with the door open, undo about a dozen screws), the front will fall off if you don't hold on to it, and the door swing closed, so be careful. When it has detached, move the metal part aside, and place the "brains" (circuit board etc) on to a chair or similar so the wires don't stretch.

A quick way to see if you have the problem is the same as mine is to remove the orange cable from the PCB as per below:
5ed7133.jpg

Turn the power back on, and press the power button, then the play button, things will hopefully work. If they do, turn it off right away and continue as per below to fix. If you are not worried about the safety mechanism - you could just leave it off and put things back together. However if you forget I think the entire kitchen could get very wet!

Reconnect the orange cable, and start by removing the handle. You will need to disconnect the cable block going in to the back of the handle mechanism, and remove the 3 screws as shown:
a89a7ae.jpg

Once you have the handle off, remove the metal cover. I found I had to slide it down at an angle and back, ie:
e4825a2.jpg

With that off, you should then be able to carefully edge out the reed switch - this is the source of the problem. In the image below the arrow point to TWO hooks that need to be released as you slide it out. I found that the hooks got stuck on the seam as well, so go slowly.

Once you have the reed switch out, you can see if the local electronics shop has one the same (probably the best long term fix), or if you pry it apart, I lightly scraped the contacts inside it:
15b9270.jpg

Once this was done, I could put the handle back together and test (I tested before putting the whole front back on). With a screw driver you can put the mechanism back to "close" the door, and things should hopefully work. Or to "open" the door, pull the handle, and use the screw driver to pull it the rest of the way, ie:
f93a689.jpg

Once you are happy it is all working, put everything back together and things should hopefully be away!

Dishwasher wont start


Most likley problem is the door is not closing properly or the door latch switch is faulty. This means the dishwasher controller is not getting the right signal before commencing the wash cycle.
Need to check the closure of the latch. If this is ok then replace the door switch.

LG dishwasher LD-14AW2 starts up & tries to drain for about 2 mins & then the alarm comes on. The wash, rinse & dry lights are flashing. The hose is raised and not blocked because we can blow...


Hi Jeff - am not too savvy with LG - am a Electrolux/Miele serviceman is it possible to gain access to the drain pump from inside the unit? I think it does sound like there is a restriction somewhere perhaps the pumps not running freely.

To check you pour water inside , take the drain hose , operate machine to see how good the flow of the drain is, rule of thumb if you cover the outlet no flow then the problem.

hope this is a start..

LG dishwasher ld14aw2 error


Did the owner of the LG LD-14aw2 that was giving the OE error get the problem resolved?
With an OE (Drain Error), it means that the dishwasher is not fully drained out in spite of 5 min. drain operation. First step of the trace the entire path of the drain hose to the sink drain. Be certain that ther is no blockage in any of it.
It that does not resolve the problem, remove the lower spray arm and the screws that hold the sump area down. Open up the area and inspect everywhere for debris that could be blocking the drain area.
Next step would be to replace the drain motor.
With the LG dishwasher that is giving an IE error: Double check that the water valve supplying the dishwasher is fully open. Next, with the water turned off, open the connection between the inlet pipe (hot water) and the dishwasher inlet valve. Clean the screen of all debris/minerals that often build up there.
If problems continue, check and replace the inlet valve.
Thanks for reporting back what you have found. Good Luck!

IE is inlet error, displayed when "Not reached to the normal water level in spite of 10 min. water supply"

Possible cause:

  • The Water Supply Tap is closed.
  • The Water Supply is shut off.
  • The Inlet Hose is kinked.
  • The Water Pressure is very low.(below 10 psi)
  • Inlet Valve is OK?
  • The filter of Inlet Valve is clogged by impure water.
  • The Hall sensor is OK?
  • The Impeller of Air Guide is bound.
Remedy:

  • Take action on Water Supply device.
  • Measure the electric resistance of Inlet Valve. (950-1300 )
  • Clean the filter of Inlet Valve.
  • Check the frequency of Inlet Water by the Test Mode.
  • Replace the Air Braker.
