Question about LG Dishwashers
The cycle selector is erratic. Possibly defective if you have had the machine for awhile.

If you are getting a IE or similar error on your LG dishwasher and have not been able to solve the problem using information based on that code, check the serial number of the dishwasher. If the first three numbers are between 501 and 702 you may have this problem:
The black mastic sound insulation material inside the dishwasher door can soften from the heat inside the dishwasher, allowing the wires inside the door to become embedded in it. If this has happened, the insulation on the wires can soften and begin to dissolve, resulting in shorted or broken wires. This may cause various error codes which may send you on a wild goose chase.
Take the screws out of the door and inspect the black insulation and the wires. If any wires are embedded in the black mastic, you may cut them and bypass them with a new section of wire, then make sure to add an insulating material to separate the wires from contacting the black mastic. In severe cases, the inner door panel must be replaced (they no longer use that type of mastic) and the wiring harness for the dishwasher would also be replaced. (a set of all the wires and plugs).

There is a shock sensor in the phone and any slight jarring will turn it off to protect the circuitry (if you drop it good)... it may be annoying but it is a decent feature.

SOURCE: LG dishwasher ld14aw2 error
I had the same problem. With the help of a friend of mine we carefully pulled apart the dishwasher until we got to the pump.
In this location we found a small piece of white plastic had appeared (about one quarter the size of a 5 cent piece) and this was obviously stopping the impeller blade from spinning.
Once this tiny piece of plastic was removed and the dishwasher was reassembled, it now works like a dream.
Hope this helps someone else.
PS. a normal handyman/girl can do this, just take your time and carefully pull it apart, loosen the bottom, flip it over - so that the base unit can be assessed and then you can assess the pump and whatever problem lies within.

Yes its faulty. This is not me being funny. The 42" TV has had many faults and weas under recall. LG does not mean good life. It means lotta garbage. If this is new take it back and have it replaced. Preferbaly with a different brand. If it was second hand it has to have minimum guarantee and be covered up to 7 days for colling off and trial period.
Get it back fast, the repair cost is sky high ( $600)
