SOURCE: dishwasher makes a loud noise when the drain cycle starts

When you say you have checked for blockages, have you taken things apart down to the impeller? If not, recommend you look at this diagram to help get to that point looking for stuff that is broke or blocked.

If that does not fix it, post back here and we will look at the motor parts 'n stuff.

SOURCE: lg - LDS5811ST Dishwasher OE Error Code

The most common cause of an OE error code on a modern LG dishwasher is:
1. Blocked drain hose
2. Obstruction in the sump area (beneath the filter, which needs to be removed to check for onstruction)
3. Failing drain motor.

Whirlpool dishwasher F8 E1 error

You have a blockage in the drain line someplace. If you have a garbage disposer, check to see that it is clear where the dishwasher connects to it. Also check and make sure that the drain hose is higher then the inlet to the disposer to prevent water draining back into the drain line from the disposer. If that's clear you have a blockage somewhere in the drainline. Best to unit from cabinet and check it

Need a manual for Bosch SGS53c12gb dishwasher The check water light is on and the machine is not draining


Firstly, here's the manual for the SGS53C12GB/XX you requested:

The manual will tell you that the check water light (tap icon) is a problem with the water-supply, but this warning light also illuminates when the machine fails to pump out.

Your problem is most likely a blockage in the sump or the drain-hose or possibly a defective drain pump motor. The drain pump impeller can get jammed on these.

First, with the power switch on the control panel in the ON position, open the door and locate the mushroom float in the bottom of the washing compartment/tub.


Lift the float (about 3/4 inch) and listen for a humming from the drain pump motor. If you can hear the motor, keep the float lifted and the water level in the washer starts to drop. If the motor hums, but the water level doesn't drop, you either have a blockage in the drainage system or the impeller may be jammed or become detached from the spindle. If you can't hear the motor with the float raised, the drain pump motor may have failed.

If you can hear the motor, next check for blockages in the drainage system. First remove the filters from the bottom of the washing compartment and check for any debris/blockages here (see pages 19-20 of the user manual I supplied. Next, if the drain hose is attached directly to the waste-trap under your sink, disconnect the hose from the spigot on the trap and check for any blockages in the end of the hose or in the spigot on the trap itself. If you haven't found any blockages in either of these places, pull the dishwasher from under the counter and follow the hose all the way back to the rear of the dishwasher, squeezing and flexing the hose gently as you go. You may be able to feel a blockage in the hose and the gentle flexing may break-up any blockage. Don't be aggressive with the hose as it could split, particularly if it's old.

Finally, if the drain hose is attached to the waste-trap, make sure you aren't running the dishwasher with the plug in the sink as this can create a vacuum and prevent the dishwasher from pumping out.

Hope this helps. Please try the above and then get back to me with your findings if you need further assistance.

Dishwasher will not drain, what do I do?

Check the hose from the dishwasher to the disposal or drain. It may be blocked. It is a white hose that if it is blocked you can see the blockage. It will appear as a dark grey. You can move the hose back and forth to manipulate the blockage. Then run the washer one full cycle. When I did that to my washer the blockage was removed and it drained just fine.

Water doesn't drain form the dishwasher


Check for blockage. Check both the drain hose at the back, and check drain well and hose attached to pump.

If that does not fix the problem, replace the pressure switch that is often responsible for drain problems. Ensure that there is no blockage first.

The dishwasher is not draining and won' t go into a program.

Please check the drain pump filter and try to clean the drain hose, pump filter for any clogs/blockages. After this also check drain pump operation, if after cleaning the problem is not solved then replacing the drain pump is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Dishwasher won't drain or seems to drain to other diswasher.

possible blockage at sink pipe where the drain hose connects to. the drain hose is attached to the spout on the pipe. remove the clip holding the drain hose to the spout, remove drain hose gently, put drain hose into a bucket and then turn unit on to a cycle. it should start draining straight away.if it does drain into bucket u have a blockage in the spout. put a small screwdriver into spout to unblock . then put drain hose back onto spout with clip and run a cycle. before i forget when and if the water starts draining into the bucket turn off the unit so u can put the drain hose back on. if u need more help please reply. good luck.

My dishwasher will not drain

Check drain hose first.

If you do not find any blockage, then you will need to access the pump, remove pump hose and look for blockage in there.

If there is no blockage at all, then either the water level switch, a faulty pump, a wiring problem, or a faulty timer board can be cause the machine not draining.

you have a blockage somewhere probably. if the drain hose plumbed in under the sink, check there is no blockage in this area. also check the drain hose for blockages. if all clear, the fault is probably the drain pump itself
