LG Dishwasher LD12AW2

Our dishwasher will not allow water to enter. The system seems to start normally with no error showing. The time clock and all program buttons seem to be operating normal. I replaced the water solenoid valve and checked the door switch.
Can anyone please provide a solution

Re: LG Dishwasher LD12AW2

My LG model LDF7811ST dishwasher fills with water at the bottom of the dishwasher but water does not come out of the spray arms to clean the dishes. The spray arms are not clogged. I don't get any error codes.

Why does it stop running after two mins and has an error code of OE?

The OE or Overflow Error code.
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.

Dishwasher is powered on but and making normal start up noise but no water is entering the dishwasher and not beginning the wash cycle

There is a problem with control wire to the solenoid powered water valves. or their connections. The solenoid valves can be tested with an ohm meter to be sure there is continuity. There are several online "appliance parts" stores. Usually they are helpful with diagnostics and recommended replacement parts. Otherwise, a lightly used replacement may be less than a repair technician.

What can cause and lg dishwasher to not fill water and stop and show le code

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!

2H accures in digital read out. NO Cycles start, just a humming

Do you own an LG LDF6810ST dishwasher? If not, please reply with the manufacturer name, model and serial number.
Are you saying that the display that normally shows the time is displaying an code of 2H? On an LG, that means 2 Hours, (120 minutes) and is not an error code.
On an LG with a symptom like this, I would arrage to replace the main processor card (PCB). You would be getting an error message if the motor (wash or drain) had failed.

What is an E1 error code for an LG Dishwasher? Model LD12AW2

Please check at both ends of the drain hose and confirm that you do nit have a leak. Also, please confirm that water is not leaking directly under the dishwasher.
If you are certain that you do not have a real leak, check the impeller (under the mesh filter in the sump area beneath the lower dish rack) is not damaged and is firmly in place.
The E1 error code is a Leakage Error, detected by the motor spinning faster than it should if the unit is filled with water.
Please report back with what you find. Good Luck!

LG LD12AW2 Dishwasher overflowing

On the LG LD-12AW2 model, there is a float assembly just behind the wall where the water inlet port is located inside the unit.
When that float (or the micro-switch inside it) fails, water will continue to flow in without stopping . That causes the overflowing.
Post back here if you are looking for more specific guidance.
Good Luck!

LG LD12AW2 leaking

The fill switch may be contaminated with soap or debris that makes it heavier and makes it float lower in the water which means more water is required to trip it. Try moving it manually and see if it is hard to move at the top of its travel.
