The possible reasons could be
1. If the drain hose is kinked, water will not drain properly. Kinks will also catch food debris as it passes, clogging drain hose. Straighten any kinks or bends in the hose. Make certain that drain hose does not exceed 10 feet for proper drainage.

2. Check the drain air gap anytime the dishwasher is not draining properly. if the air gap is clogged the unit will not drain. The air gap is not part of the dishwasher. It is located on the sink and attached through the drain hose and garbage disposal. Not all homes are required to have an air gap installed.

3. Food residue or particles can prevent proper draining of dishwasher. Remove bottom rack and check unit for food debris or items that may have fallen into the bottom of the unit. Remove any items or food debris that may be preventing proper drainage.

4. If the unit is not leveled properly, OE Error may occur. Use a level to check sides and top of unit. if the unit is not level, adjust the leveling legs in the front and back (use leveling kit). Also check the mounting brackets. If one is tightened more than the other, it will offset the cabinet.

* Note: To adjust leveling legs on the front, use a 1/4" square drive wrench. Turn clockwise as needed to adjust level. To adjust rear legs, use a standard Phillips head screw driver. On the left side rear, turn the screw counterclockwise to lower the leg and raise the rear. To adjust right side rear, turn the adjusting screw clockwise to lower the leg and raise the rear of dishwasher. Using a level while adjusting the legs will help aid in proper leveling.

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!!!

Hi there I have a silver LG dishwasher..I am intermittentleey getting the Code PE. I have take the pump off the exit water pipe and chaeck for blockages etc... there are none. Any ideas?


Please confirm the model number of this LG diswasher.
On recent LG units, the avaiable error codes are: IE OE E1 FE tE LE
The PE code is abnormal. Can you confirm.
I would expect to see the error OE if water is not fully pumped out. Remove the filter from the sump area beneath the bottom rack. Look closely for debris causing a blockage/lock. Please get back to me with your findings and ask more questions as needed.

DISPLAYING OE ERROR CODE


What did the original poster with the OE error find?
An OE error = Dishwasher not fully drained out in spite of 5 min. drainoperation
Remove the cause of kink or block in the drain hose.
Remove the filter and confirm that there is no debris in the sump area, especially the drain pump outlet.
Check the wiring connections, especially in the wiring harness in the door panel. Look for "melting" insulation.
Measure the electric resistance of Drain Motor. (good=20-40 ohms) Replace the Drain Motor if out of spec.
Good Luck!
