Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error E1 is a leakage error which occurs due to excessive RPM of washing motor during wash cycle due to water leakage. This is caused due to either water leakage in hose, the motor water seal is leaking and/or the impeller of the washing pump is worn out. To resolve this issue you’ll have to check the point of damages and repair/replace the part that has gone bad. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

Duet. What does F8E1 code indicate needs to be done to restore operation?


Check out the Link and the info below.
Question: Front Load Washer - Error Code - F8 E1 or LO FL Answer Product Symptom:
Front Load Washer - Error Code - F8 E1 or LO FL


F8 E1 or LO FL Code in display:
No water detected entering washer after 13 minutes, the pressure switch input has not been detected.
If the washer has an F8 E1 error or LO FL error, the door will be locked, and the control will be unresponsive. The washer will start a drain routine which takes approximately 8 to 10 minutes, during which time the pump will run continuously. The control will not accept any input during this time. Please wait 10 minutes before trying to perform any functions.
Check the water supply:

Turn on the water. Check the household water supply to see if the hot and cold water faucets are turned on. Make sure to open both faucets completely for proper fill.

NOTE: Both Hot and Cold water must be supplied to the washer.

Whirlpool recommends that appliances be direct connected to the water supply for optimum machine performance.
If a "flood saver" device is being considered:
  • Check with the manufacturer of the device to ensure it will not affect the performance of the appliance.

  • Whirlpool has experienced that "flood safety" devices can interfere with the performance of the appliance. Whirlpool typically does not recommend these devices.
Two types of "flood-saver" devices, hoses and valves are illustrated below. anti%20flood%20hose%202.jpeg floodsafe%203.jpeg Whirlpool Duet Washer F8 Code Appliance Repair Forum

What is E1 error code


The E1 error code indicates a water inlet error. Do you still have your manual to test for this?

Kenmore 587-1519 dishwasher 5 years old just started making a squealing noise during certain times on any wash cycle. Noise is coming from under the tub.


Sounds like something is stuck in the pump. Your pump propeller may be going out causing strain on the windings of the pump. If you have anymore questions please comment me back.

If wash quality is OK leave it. Pump will make whining noise due to its' ball/bush bearing problem.

Some times if the water inlet flow is not free in flow also results in noise.
Clean the inlet water filter and check the flow before re- connecting to the machine.

Hi,
I think both the heater and thermostat / trip switches need to be checked.
If water is going in and out ok, then it seems to be waiting to heat the water. It sees a fault - so just clears out.
Heating elements do fail after a few years.

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 Dishwasher making grinding noise then blinking E1 code 10 minutes later


Well done by resolving this problem. The other way to avoid the siphoning problem through the drain hose is adding an air gap valve/connector (available at any hardware store). You can use it even if you don't have a garbage disposal in your kitchen sink. That will assure that you have the proper height of the drain hose.
Hope this helps!
