Theres a small filter attached to the hose that connects into the dishwasher. It could be clogged. Clean it out, usually its just muck from the old water.
Thats what happened to us. no wonder no water was going through. and EI was flashing each time water tried to go into the dishwasher.

The only parts that usually leak are the motor shaft seal or the fill valve connector. The fill valve seal is usually lower than the motor, try putting in a small amount of water manually and increasing the level until the leak shows up. The device that is then covered in water is the leaker

AE comes on. Have not used the dishwasher. Just started today. How do I stop it from coming on. I can call LG tomorrow

The AE or E1 error code indicates a possible leak from the unit. This is most often caused by excessive suds overflowing into the base of the dishwasher.

This problem could be caused by a failure on your machine or the detergent used. I highly recommend you follow the troubleshooting from the LG website. HEre is the link.

How do i fix electrolux dishwasher when error code 1 is flashing

Hello friend, thanks for your post!

I see your Electrolux dishwasher is displaying an "E1" error code. "E1" stands for a leak detected which means your dishwasher base has detected a leak. If you can't see a leak you may want to perform a reset on your dishwasher you can do that by disconnecting the power from your appliance for roughly ten minutes.

If that does not correct the issue you may want to seek assistance from a technician. They would need to come out to diagnosis and repair your dishwasher. I hope this information has been helpful. -Matt

The error code is Thermistor/when/thermistor module failed

Hello patbauns - Typically the turbidity sensor, or thermistor, is located in the base of the unit. If water is leaking from the door, it is possible that water has made its way into the base of the unit and potentially shorted the thermistor. At this point, I would strongly recommend consulting a professional to narrow down the precise issue before investing in parts that may or may not be the root cause. You can often locate a qualified service provider through the manufacturer website.

Displays E1 code. water is on

Hi there Dolly, error code E1 relates to water leaking. Its the code the machine displays when the flood switch in the bottom of the machine activates. The flood switch activates when the bottom of the machine gets filled with water from a leak. I surgest you have a look underneth the machine for signs of water. I hope this helps regards Gary.

I have error code e1

Hi. Sorry this is so late, but I just happened across this post, so I thought I'd see if you have solved your problem yet. The EI code most often is caused by water leaving the tub during the wash cycle. The most common cause of this is that the dishwasher drain hose does not have a high loop in it. Often, the installer ran the hose right down through the floor. It needs to loop up high before going to the drain to prevent water loss, and a resulting IE code.

Leaking dishwasher

what sort of soap powder do you use
some soap powders foam a lot in machine causing dishwasher to leak through seals
also check that the machine is square that is the door is closing parallel with cabinet
do not use power balls in machine just standard dishwasher detergent and separate rinse aid
