SOURCE: ge dishwasher is 12 yrs old. water doesnt drain, checked trap, its clear..

check the pump and motor to see if it is working the motor might run but the pump could be to weak to move the water, and the opposite the motor could be to weak. if you hear the motor run then its a fairly simple test put a small rag in front of the intake to the pump and carefully move it close to see if the pump tries to pull it in dont let it suck it in that will cause lots of problems.

SOURCE: LG Dishwasher LD 2060SH OE Error code Draining problem

Hi sonicmule,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: Re-circulation pump was replaced under warranty after 7 months. Now there appears to be draining problems. hose not kinked and filter seems clear - I guess the pump is either broken or something has jammed it. Does anyone know how to get at it??? Warranty has expired and a new pump + fitting is gonna be expensive. Any tips?

If the motor runs but it won't empty then the pump needs replacement. If the unit washes but the motor won't come on to empty then you have a control problem. Either way I don't recomend this repair to the average homeowner. The unit must be removed to access the pump. You might consider utilizing our Repair Directory to find a repair man.

Feel free contact me again!

SInce the drain hose is not plugged or kinked, the next step if to remove the filter that is beneath the lower rack done in the sump area. Remove approximately 10 phillips screws.
Inspect for debris in the mesh filter and underneath it, especially the drain outlet.
Reassemble and retest with a quick cycle.
If problems persist, suspect a failing pump motor. Schedule professional repair is recommended.

hi
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

SOURCE: LG Dishwasher Model LD-4120M Error 0E

LG 2050 error 0E error. - You may not want to believe this but it is true!!
My dishwasher has failed with 0E error 5 times now - it has cost me R350 each time - the problem IS NOT necessarily a blocked drain hose or the drain pump it could be the thermostat micro switch!!! the thermostat is located at the rear of the right bottom side of the dishwasher(held by oval nylon plastic housing). Turn the machine off. remove the right side panel.(remove top {2screws in lid at back}, remove right panel screws {2 behind door, 3 bottom back panel, 2 behind panel below door {pull panel out from top [no screws pushes in & out of place]}. Locate oval nylon/plastic shape located as above - micro-switch is in the middle (3 wire connectors in 1 block) thermostat is 2 connectors ( 1 each side of micro-switch). use screwdriver to push thermostat back into the nylon housing on both sides (it has worked its way out a bit over time and stops the micro-switch working). Reassemble and dishwasher starts to work again!!!!
Good Luck - Alan

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.

My Lg Dishwasher , model 12aw2 , has an error message OE shortly after start up , dishwasher is over 6 years old , is this a simple fault to repair? or not worth it ?


The LG error code OE simply means "the pump is blocked". Presumably the water isn't being emptied properly. As with all error codes it is possible that there is a cause other than the exact description in the error code explanation but basically this error means as far as the washing machine is concerned it thinks the water isn't pumping out. A pump, or filter blockage is the most common cause but it could be caused by other faults such as a faulty pump, or even a blockage in the drain hose or somewhere else in the system etc.


LG themselves have some information on this error code..

Instead of showinf a time my LG dishwasher (LD-2120w) has code: F on then during a cycle it stops and flashes 0E. I have found OE means to clean the filter which i think i have done, but the priblem is...


With an OE error, the next step is to follow the drain hose from where it connects to the dishwasher through the point where it connects to the drain.

Look for crushed hose, kinked hose. Then look for a plugged drain connection.

Please report back what you find. There are other things that ~could~ cause the problem. OK?

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!

Error


The ?OE? indicates drainage trouble. It could be a clogged in the drain line. Often the problem is at the point where the drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drain line. You should remove this line and clear it form any debris in the hose or the hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again. Good luck!
