Question about Baumatic Dishwashers
The dishwasher in my unit has never worked. I've checked all the inlet water and its all good. Any ideas before I scrap it or call service?
If you are getting E1 error then the dishwasher is suggesting that water is getting in but not enough. But if you are getting no water into the dishwasher then the water inlet valve inside it is faulty. Have you checked if there is water inside the dishwasher when you get E1 error. Another thing to find out is the water pressure specification of dishwasher and whether it is consistent with the mains pressure in the house. Usually there should be a plate on dishwasher door which would give water pressure required.

Testimonial: "There is some water getting in but as I live in a unit block there is little I can do about the pressure. Anything else I can try?"

SOURCE: IE error message
Hi, had the same problem on a LG LD 12aw5. (No water entering). Check the inlet solonoid. There should be 220V over the solonoid. I replaced the solonoid, at first, just to have the same problem. The problem was a bit more serious, the Triac driving the solonoid burnt out, and the solder on the mainboard keeping the transformer were shot to. I replaced the Triac, soldered the Transformer - and wolla - working. If water enters - but you sill get the IE error it could be the float(checks the water level). This device tells the machine when there is enough water. If this is stuck, the machine will think no water is entering. email@example.com - replace "_dot_" with "." to email me.

SOURCE: E1 error on LG - LD-4120M
E1 is a common error in the LG Dishwasher range and is usually caused by the failure of the circulation pump and/or the impeller.
The motor and impeller are a complete unit.
Often what happens is the impeller breaks on the motor shaft and doesn't spin, therefore doesn't pump water.
There is a pressure sensor which indicates the lack of pressure and shuts the machine down with the E1 error being displayed.
The lack of pressure can also be from a water leak (as the owners manual suggests) also a controller PCB fault may produce an E1 error, however, the pump problem is extremely common.
Unfortunately, I have had 5 pumps die in 4 years and my dishwasher is only used about 4 times a week.

I had a LG certified repairman come out and fix. The electrical wires within the door were melted into the "tar" (sound deafening spray) and one wire actualy sheered. Apparently the drying cycle heats the tar and the wires become embeded and melt into the tar. This is what was causing the error code. After the wire was tested and spliced everything worked great. Long term...The door/electrical harness was replaced by LG.

F13 is an inlet fault.
First the unit drains and then fills with water. When the unit has intially drained open the door and manually fill the unit with water, about 5lts. This will then allow the dishwasher to go to the next step which is to circulate the water. If this works ok then the water tap is defective, water inlet valve is defective or the electronic unit is not sending the signal to activate the valve. The water inlet valve is the white square box attached to the tap. Remove this and check the filter and make sure water comes out of the tap.If ok then remove the bottom panel of the unit under the door. On the right hand side there is a 2 core cable with a male and female connector. Unplug this and check for voltage from the electronic when the unit goes to fill with water. If there is 240v then the electronic is ok. You will then need a new waterproof system from Miele.
