    I have the same problem. It still keeps flashing with the code "PE" and have no idea what is the problem. When I shaked the machine it went back to normal and washed completely. Then it comes back to square one and so on. Please advise what it means.

    I found the answer elsewhere on this site - getting the PE error, with the "E" flashing. A good thump as per the link below solved the problem. The LG website doesn't even mention this error code. Washer is 16 years old though, so probably time for a replacement.

I don't know of PE as a error for the dishwasher, however stranger things have happened.
Lg has had problems with older units prior to mar 07. They have had wires breaking in the door. If you turn off the power and remove the panel. Look for broken wires and or wires stuck in the insulation. Check for continuity as sometimes it can be an internal break. Fix this and you should be good. Oh put some insulation between before closing it up .

If this is the machine with just a knob for the wash cycles, and one button to start the wash cycle, you will have to replace the timer. There is no reset that I know of.

Hotpoint FDW60 flashing eco light

if the eco light is flashing, this indicates that saftey float switch has activated in the base of the dishwasher usually caused by a leak, a polystyrene float activates a microswitch which cuts of the water inlet supply

LG LDF6810 Dishwasher Starts filling with water then pumps water

Because you are not getting an error message, I agree that the controller card is malfunctioning. Almost everthing else would triger an error.
Recommend replacing the controller card.
