Question about LG 24 in. LD-12BW5 Free-standing Dishwasher

2 Answers

Water leakage in dishwasher? Cant turn on. Model LD-12AW2.

The rubber seal for my dishwasher had been removed by a family member. I did not notice this and turned it on. Half way through the cycle I stopped it and checked to see as it did not sound right. I noticed the seal missing, so I found it and replaced it. However I have not been able to restart the machine or cycle. I have tried powering off, and starting a new wash. I can select a cycle but then it just beeps and does not start.

POSSIBLY REMOVE THE SEAL AGAIN THEN RETRY. IF UNIT STARTS THEN YOU KNOW DOOR LIMIT WAS NOT CORRECTLY ACTIVATED. THEN REINSTALL RUBBER AND RETRY.

My LG dishwasher - model LD-12AW2 has 'E1' alert & won't work


This sounds like a anti flood activation due to water leak / spill detection. This device (polystireen float and micro switch) at the base of the washer detects any water leak and stops the washing cycle once water leak activates the switch via the float. Check if any water at the base of washer is cuasing the float to activate the switch. Rectify any leak / spill (normally a pipe / clamp) and this should solve the problem.

LG DISHWASHER WORKS BUT VERY NOISY MODLE:LD-2040WH


The main water pump on this model does not last long. The water seal between pump and motor starts to leak that result in the adjacent motor bearing corroding and eventually failing, resulting in excessive noise. Later the water leak becomes so bad that it triggers the "E I" water leakage display and prevents it from completing the program. The pump and motor is sold as one unit and the whole unit must be replaced. I have tried to replace the faulty bearing and repacked the rubber seal with silicon grease but with no success. If anyone have repaired the water seal successfully please let us know.

Water leaking out of bottom of door


There is a rubber seal that runs along the bottom of the door. If you carefully run your hand along there just to see if it is all even. Sometimes they get out of place and you can push it back and then closing the door it realigns itself and all is good. If the seal is damaged, you have to replace the door liner as the seal is attached.
