20 Most Recent LG LDF8812 Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher - Page 4 Questions & Answers


I had a similar issue, I am not sure if this will your issue or not, but it is worth a shot. Mine would do this about 4 minutes into the cycle after it had pumped water into the unit, Started after about 8 months of use.

The issue was actually the impeller that pumps water around from the base of the unit. It was making contact with the filter/cover over it, causing it to spin too slowly and throw the error.

Both dish drawers had to be removed and about 8 screws in that secure the filter in the bottom of the unit. When you get the cover off check to see if anything is impeding the impeller, If not, Look at the bottom side of the cover. Mine had white streaks in a circular fashion. I scraped off the white plastic swirls with a chisel and verified the top of the impeller was smooth as well. Reassembled and it worked again.

Hope this helps.

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

Check float valve actuator, might be indicating empty when water left behind. Think you can hear switch actuate as you move it.
So no clog or twist in drain hose? Manual indicates any standing water drains in first 45 secs. Makes me wonder if that is now normal. Was it always or just started to leave water....
Make sure you clean filter located in bottom

The drain pump automatically runs when the FE code is displayed. A leaking water inlet valve or a stuck relay on the electronic control board can allow water to fill the dishwasher constantly. To check for a leaky water inlet valve, unplug the dishwasher and see if the tub continues to fill with water. If it does, shut off the water supply and replace the water inlet valve because the valve is letting water to flow into the dishwasher constantly. If water stops filling when you unplug the dishwasher, then you'll likely need to replace the electronic control board because the control board is constantly sending current to the water inlet valve

Try resetting by:
turn off dishwasher
trip circuit breaker to remove all power to unit
wait 30 seconds
restore power
start dishwasher
the drain pump should start and drain all water then start a cycle. Good luck

OE indicates a drain error. Your model number doesn't fit the usual pattern for LG dishwashers; LDT5665WW and LDS4821WW are a couple of recent model numbers.

To start diagnosing and fixing the OE error, first check the discharge hose. Make sure that it isn't clogged, kinked or improperly positioned. Make sure that the pipe or food disposer that the drain hose connects to isn't clogged. (Check into the rest of the drain pipe if needed.)

Next check that the float switch inside the dishwasher isn't blocked. This indicates the water level and if a foreign object is holding it open, the dishwasher will continue to try to drain the water.

Finally check for any blockage in the drain pump. Also check the pump for obvious damage. If the pump is damaged, replace it.

After you've checked and fixed (as needed) the above issues, try the dishwasher again. If the OE code recurs, then you need to replace the drain motor pump assembly.

If your dishwasher is under warranty, contact LG. Otherwise, please check and post your machine's model number. I can check to see if the parts are available.

I hope this helps.

Is disposal newly installed? If so, there’s a knock out plug in inlet to disposal. If that’s not it, disposal or drain is obstructed

Cut off breaker for 5 minutes. Cut back on and see if code clears. If so, run any empty cycle with no dishes and no soap. Make sure type and amount of detergent recommended in owners manual is used in the future.

Replace the inlet solenoid/water valve.
