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!

Dishwasher pump runs continuously. Wont do anything else


The outlet pump or pipe have got blocked (very common) and water has overflowed into the base.
This has activated a float switch to tell machine to pump out all time.
You need to remove the plinth of appliance and remove with sponge or syringe the water and clear outlet blockage and all will be fine

Why wont my dishwasher empty,it goes through all the program but just wont empty,it was fine when we were using it before we moved.


The drain pump motor is in line with the outlet pipe. First check if the outlet pipe is not blocked or obstructed. The motor can be tested by removing the 2 electrical push on connectors and connecting mains supply to the 2 terminals. If the motor spinns it indicates that the motor is OK and that the fault is then with the electronic switching circuit (not normaly a home repair). If the motor does not spin it indicates that the motor is open circuit and needs replacing. (easy job). You can also spin the motor small cooling fan by hand just to determine if it runs freely like it should and is not obstructed by dirt inside the water channel of the pump.

My dishwasher will not drain. When I try to run it through the drain cycle by hitting drain/cancel button it makes one click and nothing happens. I checked for blockages in the drain line and valve but...


Check to determine if the pump out motor is functional by checking if supply voltage is across the 2 terminals in pump out mode with a AC voltage meter. If voltage is present and motor does not spin this is an indication that the motor is open circuit and needs to be replaced. Also check that the outlet pipe is not blocked.
The motor can be removed by disconnecting the 2 hose clamps and the electrical push on lugs.

Dishwasher runs but will not drain


sounds like the outlet pump is blocked for this you need to power off the appliance and unplug either remove one side of the dishwasher or tilt back and see if you can get under where the outlet pipe comes from you will see a white pump there should be a metal screwclip holding the outlet hose onto the pump remove this then look inside the hole to check for the blockage normaly rice or fat if you can remove it with a coathanger then all is good if not your going to have to remove the pump and take the side off 3 screws be carefull of the rubber seal then give it a good clean also check the feeder pipe to the pump for any blockage. Also after this remove the filter inside the dishwasher and check there is nothing blocking the small hole to the outlet pump.

I have a Hoover dishwasher D820 model,water is now leaking as soon as the machine is switched on. I have examined inlet pipe and renewed washer, no other cracks are in the outlet pipe. All connections are...


with hoover it should have a water pump prior to the start of the outlet pipe. Id remove this and check for blockage, as anything in there that wont allow the motor to turn will force the water out somewhere else once its under pressure.

Backup of foul smelling water into the dishwasher


Outlet pipe is partially or completely blocked.

Use a dishwasher cleaner in it, but before you even do that, remove outlet pipe from waste pipe - and clear all the gunk out you can.

I suggest a bucket with disinfectant and washing powder to dissolve the grease.

You may need a drain cleaner down the waste pipe too - & flush with hot water and washing powder.

Dishlex Global 2000 starts makes a constant noise tries to start up then stops. Bit of water in the bottom of the dishwasher. Lights flash but does nothing


have you checked that your outlet pipe is not blocked. if it is blocked machines are designed to stop to prevent flooding. this may explain why there is water in bottom

Hi,
the first things to look for, are the simplist faults.

2:) Check that the Pump, is not clogged/Blocked or not-functioning.

Hope this helps you start, your fault-finding successfully.
