What is error code LE?


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.

Wrong dishwashing liquid used created out of control suds won't finish cycle. cleaned away suds towel and wet vac but foes not work


HI- Ah yes, the suds. Your flood switch has probably been tripped. Unplug the machine or flip the breaker. Remove the lower kick panel and you'll see the white plastic bottom of the dishwasher pan. This is designed to catch the water (or suds) if there is a leak or the water (or suds) over fill it. This will take awhile but get some pliable rag and carefully put it in the space between the bottom of the dishwasher and the pan. There is a styrofoam float on the left side about halfway back, this has to be down for the dishwasher to advance the cycle and get out of drain mode. Just keep soaking the water up (you kinda have to go over the plastic lip of the pan and down wherever there is an opening large enough to get the rag into. Once it is pretty dry it should run ok. Regarding the suds. If you get the machine to run ok then start a rinse cycle and once the water is done filling open the door and add about 4 tablespoons of any cooking oil to the water. Shut the door and let the machine run for about 10 seconds, open the door check to see if there are still a lot of suds, if so cancel the cycle to drain the machine and repeat. Hope this helps, good luck.

My dishwasher stiil has water in it when done why? nicks@onlyinternet.net


DEPENDS ON WATER LEVEL, BUT THERE IS ALWAYS SOME WATER LEFT AROUND THE OPENING IN THE BOTTOM AS THE WATER IS PUMPED UP INTO THE DRAIN AND THE WATER IN THE DRAIN LINE FALLS BACK INTO THE DISHWASHER. IF EXCESSIVE SUDS THEN THE PUMP WILL NOT PUMP SUDS, 'FULL OF AIR;

Massive amount of suds coming out under the door.


Someone put the wrong detergent in this machine causing the suds problem. Manually fill the machine with COLD water. Set it to pump out. Refill with COLD water and pump out again. You may have to do this several times to clear the suds lock condition.
Use only COLD water as HOT water will cause more suds.

My SHY56A05UC Basch dishwasher runs and dose not shut off


The dishwasher is stuck in drain mode because there is water in a catch leak area underneath, it may have been caused by soap suds over flow or disposal backup. Remove bottom kick plate and vacuum out any water, then run dishwasher again and look for water leaks.

GE dishwaher leaks with standing water in bottom


Check to make sure regular dish soap did not end up getting inside the dishwasher. This will create a lot of suds that will overflow onto the kitchen floor. Standing water from not draining can mean the drain hose is clogged somewhere or the check valve has something caught in it. If you remove the front kick plate, you will be able to check those.

After adding Jet Dry to the dispenser my dishwasher started to leak water and suds from the bottom of the door. I now will not drain completly.


BE Sure you are not using detergent that has the softener/rinse agent already included. The electrasol 3in 1 tablets will cause an over abundance of suds if you use the two together. The water becomes very soft. You have locked up the pump with suds.
use 1/2cup salt to flush followed by 1/4c oil.

Thanks

I believe you may be over sudsing, Try a few cycles with vinegar and no soap. Do not use dishwashing soap at any time ever. See if the vinegar trick helps...helijm
