I have a lg dishwasher and it ran for an hour and a half and then displayed E1 on it. Then, it would not stop running and wouldnt even turn off so i had to turn it off by the breaker. any solutions?


(1) The water inlet valve is an electrically-controlled valve that opens to allow water to enter the dishwasher. Depending on the model, the valve stays open either for a set length of time or until the dishwasher has enough water. However, if the water inlet valve doesn't shut off after the dishwasher has enough water, the dishwasher will overflow. If water drips into the dishwasher when the door is open, or if water collects at the bottom of the dishwasher while it is not use, you may need to replace the water inlet valve.
(2) The float switch actuates in order to prevent the dishwasher from overflowing. If the float switch is defective or stuck, it might not stop the dishwasher from overflowing. If the float switch is defective, replace it.
One would need the model number of your machine.

Getting FE error saw a answer for this model on fixya said to clean the float module where no plastic float on bottom of washer


The FE error or fault code indicates that the washer is overfilling due to a defective water inlet valve. The valve is not repairable and will need to be replaced. If the error persists even after the water inlet valve has been replaced there may be a problem with the main control circuit board

What does it mean when your lg dishwasher is flashing FE


Guy , you're all right except for one detail. You must think as the machine does. The machine "thinks" the water level is to high, it is not necessarly. I got a FE error on a LDS5540ST and the problem was simply the floats that activate the limit switch that monitor the water level. The module was simply ful of normal mud-junk-scrap that you would normaly excpet in any dishwasher. Simply open the float module , wash the junk , Voila. Cost 0$

No water


check these:

Water-inlet valve
Float switch
Water-inlet valve The water-inlet valve lets water enter the machine. If this valve is defective, you need to completely replace it. It's usually located behind the lower access panel on the left or right side. It's the device with the main water line (usually copper) from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it.

Float switch The float switch is a small electrical switch that's located right below the dishwasher "floor." Above the switch, on the inside of the dishwasher, is a plastic cylinder that floats up as water fills the dishwasher. If this switch is defective, or if the plastic float gets caught or trapped in the raised position, the water can't enter the dishwasher. If the float switch is defective, you need to replace it.

Ly dishwasher is getting less water


Hi,

You need to check the following :-

Water-inlet valve The water-inlet valve lets water enter the machine. If this valve is defective, you need to completely replace it. It's usually located behind the lower access panel on the left or right side. It's the device with the main water line (usually copper) from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it.

Float switch The float switch is a small electrical switch that's located right below the dishwasher "floor." Above the switch, on the inside of the dishwasher, is a plastic cylinder that floats up as water fills the dishwasher. If this switch is defective, or if the plastic float gets caught or trapped in the raised position, the water can't enter the dishwasher. If the float switch is defective, you need to replace it.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

I have a lg dishwasher ld-14aw1over flow


On an LG LD-14AW1, three is a float sensor on the left hand side of the dishwasher, behing the water outlet port.
It is the sensor that tells the dishwasher to stop filling just before the wash or rinse cycle begins.
A service call is needed or post back here is you want help replacing it.

''IE'' error code on my LG dishwahser


According to the owner's manual it's a 'water input error'. You have to check for a kink or clog to the water hose running to your machine.

Low water level


One of 2 problems is causing this.  Either you have a bad float switch which is located on the left side of the dishwasher, or you have a water leak and is losing water when it is in the wash mode.  You will need to have it checked by a qualified LG technician.

Motor sounds when the dishwasher is turned to the on position but the dishwasher won't turn on.


Sounds like the drain pump is on. Pour in some water, and see if it drains out. On the LG they have a float switch on the left side, it could be stuck up causing the drain to activate.
Other units have a float switch on the bottom floor and there could be water or the float could be warped.
