E1 means: Water Level in Drum lowering, this would usually mean there is a leak on one of the pipes. But from previous experiences it is more than likely (90%) that it is the Circulation pump. It will have to be replaced, as it is a common spare that has to be replaced on L.G Dishwashers (lifetime 12 - 18 Months usually) - Not overly expensive. Usually is about 20%-25% the price of a new Dishwasher. The Circulation pump is fitted to the sump.

Hi

OE in your dishwasher is a drain error and dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller & clean the chopper assembly. If the issue returns after cleaning then the drain pump assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Error Code OE


Hi there,
The most common cause of an OE error code on a modern LG dishwasher is:
1. Blocked drain hose
2. Obstruction in the sump area (beneath the filter, which needs to be removed to check for onstruction)
3. Failing drain motor. 

else you need to REPLACE THE PCB POWER CONTROL BOARD

Good Luck!!!

I have a LG Diswasher LD 2050 with a trouble Code E1. The manual says "Water leakage in hose connection" "water is leak by damage" Ihave check and everything is Okay. It let water in and when it start...


The most common problem on an LG dishwasher when error code E1 is reported but there is no actual leak found is the problem of a natural syphon being created by improper installation of the dishwasher. Pretty easy to fix:  Either add an Air Gap valve (available at any hardware store for almost free) or follow the drain hose from the dishwasher to the drain. Raise the hose and attach the hose to the up onto the bottom of the countertop. Adding that "rise" eliminates the possibility for the syphon effect to drain the dishwasher before the drain cycle begins.
If the hose ever fall back down, the problem will return immediately.  Adding the Air Gap valve is harder but is far more permanent (and complies with construction codes that really should not be ignored.)

Model LD-14AW2 alarms after 1 minute of startup and says E1


The E1 error is telling you that there is a leak in the dishwasher. After confirming that there is no leak, even directly under the dishwasher (remove the kickplate and use a flashlight.)
After ruling that out, your problem is almost certainly caused by the drain hose between your dishwasher and your drain. There MUST be a 30" rise in the drain hose between the DW and the drain. If the hose just lays there, causing a siphoning effect (law of physics) that WILL drain water out of the dishwasher into the drain as soon as a wash or rinse cycle begins (after 1 - 2 minutes after they begin. Then the E1 error will be displayed.
The BEST way to fix this problem is to install an AirGap valve (almost free @ any hardware store) in your counter/sink and then running the short pipe to your disposal or sing drain inlet. If that is not possible or for a quick and dirty repair until you can install the AirGap, tie the drain hose to the bottom of the counter top so the rise is created.
Good Luck!

E 1 error


90% of the time you get an E1 error code is because the drain hose is not properly installed between the LG dishwasher and the drain. The hose should connect to an Air Gap valve (almost free at any hardware store) but in a pinch, raise the drain hose near the drain and attach the hose to the bottom of the counter top under the sink. Is should rise almost 30 inches between the dishwasher and the drain or the water WILL siphon out of the dishwasher as soon as the wash or rinse cycle begins (and take 5 minutes before the water gets low enough the cause the E1 error.
Good Luck!

LG LD-A2T2 Dishwasher returns Error code E1


EI is an error to do with your drain. Check your drain hook up. You should have a loop out side the unit, it should be a minimum 40in in height, or put in a air break. What I believe is happening is your unit is siphoning out. Fix this and you will be able to stop washing the dishes by hand.
