Hi

Error LE means motor is locked or behaving abnormally. It may appear due to faulty wiring to the motor. It may appear if the impeller of washing pump is locked or the rotor/blade is locked. To resolve this error check the wiring connection. You may also need to replace the motor and/or circuit board. Hope this helps... If it does please do not forget to accept the solution or post back for assistance.

My viking vdb325ss dishwasher runs for a few minutes and then stops with control pad lights blinking. The "normal cycle" and "pots and pans" lights blink together. I have reset and restarted the dis


Hello Peter!

Your owners manual or a call to Viking should help you decode the blinking panel lights. They are not random and are a desperate cry for help from the machine.

It has been my experience (YMMV) that a common dishwasher problem in older machines is accumulated grunge (the technical term) in the water level sensor. In many cases the sensor lives in a plastic container on the side of the DW and although the designers try hard to avoid contamination, the container eventually loads up and intermittently jams the float.

Before I pulled the unit however, I'd check the bottom of the wash cabinet for contaminants. There may be an screen (under a cover plate) that has clogged.

Your situation sounds a bit different, since my Samsung did not pump out water, it just stopped and flashed a code, but who knows? Go for the low-hanging, common issues first.

All the best.

Dishwasher starts in any type of cycle, runs for a minute, then shuts off as the lights blink out.


in general your wash motor can cause that. It gets old and you can hear the wash motor making a rumbling noise when it turns on. The increased load with cause a thermal coupler to turn the unit off.

Eidw6105gb1 dishwasher lights blinking took toe plate off the wash pump light is on but the unit washes great cound that control be sensing a but wash pump even if the pump is working?


Good Afternoon John,

I see that your Electrolux dishwasher, model# EIDW6105GB1, has all the lights blinking and is revealing the wash pump light. This could just be a false error and would need to be cleared or it could mean that the wash pump is going bad. You can try resetting the appliance, by cutting the power at the circuit breaker for 20-30 minutes. When power is returned, start a cycle. If the lights are still flashing and revealing the wash pump light, I suggest either contacting the manufacturer or maybe a local authorized dealer. Hope this helps.

-Best of luck-

The hi temp wash and air dry lights are blinking on my firgidaire dishwasher


Hi Dan, this is AP!

I understand you are experiencing some trouble with the lights on your Frigidaire dishwasher. On your particular model, FFBD1821MW, if there has been a power failure, then the "Hi-Temp Wash" and "Heat Dry" LEDs will flash. In order to stop the LED lights from flashing press Start/Cancel. This process should relieve your concern regarding the LED lights flashing. I hope this information proves helpful to some degree.

Best of luck,

Blinking lights on frigidaire dishwasher


Hello - Try resetting the dishwasher by disconnecting the power to the unit. This will clear most flashing lights. You can disconnect power by flipping the circuit house breaker off and back on for approximately two minutes. If this does not prove to be successful, contact a professional to move forward accurately. Dishwasher could possibly have a faulty control board or wiring failure.

Dishwashing cycle starts for about 3 minutes then flashing LE light comes on and the machine stops. Why?


Display Condition LE = Motor Error

Possible Cause For Error Occurrence:

Wiring connection is OK?
The Impeller of Washing Pump is locked.
The rotor of Washing Motor is locked.
The Blade is locked.


Remedy:

Check the wiring connection.
Replace the cause of restriction.
Replace the Washing Motor.
Replace the PCB.

Try the following steps:

Unplug the washing machine if you see an LE error on the two-digit display electronic readout. This error indicates a miscommunication between the control panel and wash motor.

Press and hold the "Start/Pause" button on the front panel for five seconds.

Plug the LG dishwasher back in.

Run a cycle. The LE code will clear.

I have a GE QuietPower3 dishwasher... the normal wash, heated dry, hot wash and hot start buttons are all flashing... can you tell me what is going on please?


try this, I was researching and found that this solution worked. While all the lights are blinking, close the dishwasher door and let the machine run through the cycles. This actually happens pretty fast. Then it will stop and quiet down and all the blinking lights will shut off. Then just press the buttons you want and hit start and the machine will start. The time it takes for the blinking light to shut off is about 1 to 2 minutes. It worked for me.

Kenmore elite model 16574


press (high temp-wash) button and then ( heated dry)
do that 3 times in that order within 5 seconds. So it looks like this:

(high temp-wash) ( heated dry) (high temp-wash) ( heated dry) (high temp-wash) ( heated dry)

That will start a short diagnostic cycle (last about 2 minutes) that will clear the blinking light and allow you to use the dishwasher. If the light comes back, your drying cycle has failed and you will need service.
