An LE error code means problems with the motor. It can either be load issues, excessive suds, thermal overload protection, or a new installation. To solve this motor problem, you must first uncover the underlying cause.
Please try the plain VINEGAR in the bottom of your dishwasher. It cleans out the pipes. When you start the machine it automatically starts to drain whatever water has been left from previous cycle. When this cannot happen, due to blocked outlet pipe, it will not precede with the wash cycle. Adding the vinegar, leaving it a few hours, or overnight (hey, I left it for a week one of those times!), it is enough to liquify any heavy fats in that pipe...enough to start the cycle and the normal draining gets reinstated.Hope this helps you, it is such a pain to go & choose another dishwasher to fit into the space allowed & that has all the functions you need. This 'fix' cures all my dishwasher blues! Havagreatday!
Wash motor may be faulty or the wash arms are clogged.
But if it simply fills and drains continuously then the flood switch has triggered. There could be water leakage which floods the base. Turn the dishwasher off form mains power. Pull out and tilt to one side to get water out. Then after a wait of few hours to allow things to dry, reconnect and see.
Check to see if there is a loop in the drain line. The drain line coming out of the disposal has to have a loop in it that is higher than the disposal. That way water can't drain back into the dishwasher.
HI- The flood switch has been tripped. It is located under the unit and is not really accessible except by a Tech. The most likely cause it poor draining; if there is a little water left over from each part of the cycle then eventually the water will overfill into the pan under the dishwasher and trip the flood switch. Check the Air Gap on your sink for blockage if you have one and check the dishwasher filter inside the unit. You can just let it sit for a few days or a week and the water in the pan will eventually evaporate and the switch will remedy itself, or you can call a Tech and have them dry it out and check the drain function. Hope this helps, good luck.
I am assuming you are getting F1 error code flashing on the LCD display. This occurs if the flood switch is activated.
The flood switch is located at the base of the drawer tub. You will have to either extend the drawers out fully or take them out depending on the amount of water that would have collected at the base of the tubs. Get some towels and dry the base out. You may also need a hair dryer.
Once the flood switch dries off the drawer should work ok when you turn back the power.
The causes of the flood switch trriggering is either too much foam in detergent (use recommended detergent) or leak in water in or drain pipe.
Please remember to rate the solution if it helps or post a comment if not.
Give me a make and model number of the dishwasher.
Check that the drain hose isn't kinked, and that where the drain connects at the garbage disposal at the sink isn't partially clogged. And, is the garbage disposal clean/clear of food stuff's. I had a similar thing happen to me a few weeks ago, and it turned out the kitchen sink drain line was clogged.
cause is water in the bottom tray which operates an anti-flood switch and all machine will do is drain.
disconnect from mains
remove bottom panel and mop out water and it will work. if fault re-occurs, then you have a leak which you will have to identify
