A04 = Unable to sense/reach temperature in 70mins. - machine drains until Level Switch resets + 1 minute First, open the door and look into the tub and locate the heating element (if it is covered, remove the lower dish rack and cover). The heating element has two terminals which extend through the bottom of the tub, note the general location where they go through.
To access the heating element's wiring, remove the front panel located beneath the door. The panel is usually held in place with two screws either above or below the panel. It may be necessary to first open the door to the dishwasher to reach the screws over the panel, then close the door to remove the panel.
Look into the lower access area and locate where the terminals come through the tub. Each terminal has a wire connected to it. Label the wires and the terminals so that they can be properly reconnected. Pull the wire off of each terminal; they are connected with a slip on connector. Firmly pull the connector, do not pull on the wire. You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers. Inspect the connector and terminal for corrosion. If either is corroded they should be cleaned or replaced

Each terminal is secured with a lock nut, use a crescent wrench or pliers to loosen the nut. Remove the two lock nuts. From inside the tub, lift the element out. Position the new element over the holes and set it in place. Replace the lock nuts and reattach the wires. Replace the access panel, the element cover, if any, and restore the electricity.

I have a hoover silver pulse inverter e03 came up on the display then changed to e16, what do I need to do?


Hoover dyn8144 and related machines

Error code 03 followed sometimes by Error code 16
Check the usual drain pump and resistance of heating element

On my machine I've discovered that on the motor if the brushes are not bedded onto the commutator it will cause the above codes to display and stop the machine.
The problem is not related to the drain pump or heating element so the codes displayed are not correct. If the brushes are not bedded to the commutator the motor cannot get to spin speed but will happily wash away. Watch the machine during a quick wash to ensure it does actually spin

Will not heat


Most likely the heating element. They are pretty cheap and almost as easy to change as an ovens element. Most times they are cracked and easy to tell if broke, otherwise could be a computer issue.

Heating element break easily with all the contracting and expanding they do. So most of the time it's the element.

F 03 showing on machine


Yes F-03 indicates a faulty thermistor (it's inside the heating element at the back). Before calling an engineer, just open the bottom rear panel and check that the connector has not come loose (OR IN MY CASE FALLEN OFF COMPLETELY). This can happen if there is a spin cycle that runs out of balance big time. (two thin wires on a square unit about 5mm in size fitted to the middle of the heating element).

Heating elements will not heat and getting an error code E1 F-5


Hello,the lock latch is located directly in the center upper portion of the door. It is a hook shaped latch that lock by turning downward. This lock gets stuck in this position which causes the e1 f5 error code. Locate the latch through the vent holes in the upper front of the oven door. Insert flat headed screw driver into vent hole and gently push latch up to a horizontal position & simply open door. Once unlocked, push cancel on the control panel.This will clear the error code and resolve the issue.

Thanks

Heater not working in cycle. No Error Code present


The LG 5811 dishwasher would display the error "tE" if the thermistor has failed. Not seeing an error could mean that the controller card (PCB) has failed. Hard to tell if the heating element has failed or wiring has shorted.
To look a little further, you can see (but not remove) the heating element by removing the filter in the sump area beneath the bottom rack. Disconnect dishwasher from power first and inspect for obvious failure of element.
Gaining access to the heating element is very complicated on the LG units. You have to drop the entire sump unit after turning the dishwasher over on its top.
Recommend a service call.
