LG dishwasher model LDS4821- 16 months old- getting E1 error. Water leaking on floor. This happened before 3 months ago but then had no other problems with it until now. No other problems with this machine...


Hi ferrojennife,

The E1 you are seeing means Water Level in Drum lowering, this means there is a leak on one of the pipes. More likely it is the Circulation Pump, which is responsible for pushing the water to the Spray arms.

It will have to be replaced, as it is a common spare that has to be replaced on L.G Dishwashers (lifetime expectancy: 12 - 18 Months) - Not very expensive.

Usually is about 20%-25% the price of a new Dishwasher. The Circulation pump is fitted to the sump. Part Number: 5859DD9001A or 5859ED1001A (Depending which one is in stock)

See below a image of what a Circulation Pump looks like:

What does it mean when F 14 is displayed in the window?


F14 - "level/pressure switch failure." The level switch monitors the dishwasher's water pressure, as it circulates, which is especially critical, during the heating cycle (main wash). Level switch failure can commonly happen from poor circulation, or from the defective level switch, itself. The most common reason for poor circulation is low water fill level. In other words, during the water intake cycle, insufficient water came into the dishwasher. Observe if enough water did come into the dishwasher, Check the water level, by using the filter's handle (located on the floor, of the inside of the dishwasher) as a reference point. At the end of the water fill stage, the water level should be just underneath the filter's handle. If the water level is more than half an inch, below the filter's handle... then that could be a problem. The sympton would be a noisy, sluggish, whooshing sound of water, during circulation - It wouldn't be the same old quiet Miele dishwasher you knew.

If you have the low water fill problem, then look at the dishwasher's water intake hose. Miele call this their Waterproof System hose (WPS). It's a water hose with an integrated electric valve. First, shut your water valve that connects to this WPS; disconnect the WPS from your valve; look inside the end of the WPS. With a needle nose plier, remove the rubber seal, filter and the water restrictor; clean them of any possible debris; put all the parts back into the WPS, securely; reconnect the hose; open your water valve; and test the dishwasher. If the problem persists, then the WPS will need to be replaced (WPS~$170).

Other causes for F14, can be weak circulation from foreign item(s) (plastic wrapping, broken glass, etc,...) lodged inside circulation pump impeller, or no circulation, at all (circulation pump stuck). Of couse, the defective level switch, itself, can cause the F14, too. The least common causes for the F14 can be broken wires to and from, level switch and electronic unit, and a defective electronic unit.

DU1145XTPB (2 yrs old). No water in, probably inlet valve? Added water manually, no circulation. Loud hum - possible seized pump?


OK, the no water situation can be caused by a faulty water valve assembly in this case and, the circulation pump may have a jammed wash impeller that is preventing proper rotation. extract the circulation motor and, inspect the wash impeller for damaged.


Just to clarify the no water issue. Make sure you get water to the dishwasher. Check to see if the water shut-off valve (located under the sink) is open. If you get water to the dishwasher, but there is still no water inside during the fill cycle, the problem will be with a faulty water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side), in which case replace the water valve.

Motor just hums during the wash cycle. Put it in


OK, that piece of glass may have jammed the wash impeller. this will destroy the motor windings. you will need to gain access to the circulation motor asap.the impeller is attached to the motor that is housed within the pump casing(upper). try to manually move the impeller. if its stuck, try ot remove the obstruction.

It is possible that, the motor is already damaged to the point of no return. in this case, replace the circulation motor. your drain pump should be ran by a totally separate motor(wax).


**NOTE

Some models have two impellers inside the pump - one, wash impeller, takes care of the wash cycles, the other, drain impeller, drains the water out. If the drain impeller is broken (broken blades, shaft), the dishwasher would not drain. Replace any broken pump components.

Asko dishwasher won't start, just hums and gets hot


Get this every few months - don't know the problem but we disconnect from unit and tilt the dishwasher and loads of stinky water spills out - from where I don't know. Then just **** all the water out of the drain bit with a chicken baster - primative but has worked every time so far. Keep trying to get water out until doesn't hum when switched on.

ASKO 1605


Hi Guys
My dishwasher this morning has desided to not work correctly.
Its a ASKO 1302 about 20 years old. It has been a very good machine.
Over the last couple of weeks during the washing cycle, the dishwasher has been making a loader noise than usual.
1. Today, the dishwasher timer, travels all the way through its cycle, but very little washing take place.
2. Soap power is still there, plates not clean!!!!
3. Water is hot
4. At the end of the cycle, there is no water in the dishwasher.
5. I'm thinking the problem could be the pump needs replacing.
What do you think?

Unit never washes...


Check water level:
Run the DW and wait for the main wash to start (water will fill. pause then complete fill) The water should be about 1/4 to 1/8 inch below the heating element. If not there..replace water inlet valve.

Dishwater fills with water, hot...but doesnt wash?


when in the wash phase, listen for a low hum near the wash pump. if you hear this it indicates the wash pump capacitor is faulty or something jammed in the pump.after that you will have to access the wash pump and check if there is any supply to it

Dishwasher fill with water then just hums


the hum is probably the main pump powered up but not turning. the pump is an induction motor and a usual fault is the motor capacitor. try to access it, find the value of the capacitor and replace. it is a cheap part
