Bosch Diswasher SHE68T52UC


Error code 08 says it's a temperature sensor problem. If the temp sensor is bad, the water heater may not be getting the water up to a hot enough temperature to dissolve the soap block. Also, while you have the unit out for repair, make sure that the drain hose is clear of debris. I have seen a number of dishwashers lately that were replaced simply because they "weren't cleaning" or "draining slowly" where the only problem was a blocked drain hose.

LE LIGHT IS APPEAR


Over-sudsing is the main cause of LE error codes. Using non-HE (high efficiency) detergents or too much detergent will cause stress on the motor. In addition, detergent residue can also cause leaking and odor. Follow these steps to resolved an LE error code caused by over-sudsing.

Step 1: Unplug the washer and allow the unit to sit for 30 minutes to give the suds time to dissolve.

Step 2: Plug the washer back in and press [Power] to turn on the washer.

Step 3: Do not choose a washing cycle. Press the [Spin Speed] key until "No Spin" is selected.

Step 4: Press [Start/Pause] to begin a drain only cycle.

Step 5: After the drain only cycle has completed, remove the clothing items from the machine. Turn the power back on and select [Rinse and Spin] and then press [Start/Pause]. This will remove excess soap suds and light residue from the drum. Repeat this step until no visible suds are in the drum of the washer.

Maytag washer throwing fault code 21


An "F21" or "F02" error code is indicative of a slow draining cycle, normally caused by a clogged or kinked drain hose. If an "F21" or "F02" error code appears, check the drain hose on the back of your washer to ensure that it is not clogged or bent. Once the drain hose has been unblocked, the error code should disappear and the machine drain properly. However, if you have a high efficiency washing machine and the error code continues to appear, make sure you are using the correct detergent; because high efficiency machines use much less water than traditional washing machines, they require the use of a low sudsing detergent. Traditional detergents may produce too many suds, which can block the machine's drain hose and lead to slower draining cycles.

Have l g tromm # wm2277HB drum stoped truning and code on front says L E


Error code LE indicates that either the motor is not turning or has locked up for some reason. It can also be due to Hall sensor which monitors direction and speed of the motor. If the sensor is faulty then also this error appears. Motor lock can be caused by several things from a loose connector, to a bad motor. To make sure it's not a locked motor, try turning the drum with your hand. And, if there is any resistance while turning the drum or the drum doesn't move freely then the motor is locked and you'll need to get it replaced. If the motor seems to be fine then you would need to replace the Hall Sensor. To replace the hall sensor, take the back cover off. Take the big nut off and remove the motor rotor. Remove the bolts holding the motor windings. Remove the electric plug on the sensor and unclip it from the motor winding. --------------- Unplug the unit from main outlet.Then drain the water from the machine.By disconnecting the drain pump ,There will be too much water so be care full.If you disconnect the drain pump from drain hose to drain the water it will flow on you,so keep towels ready to soak the water. Also clean the water filter. ----------------- In most of the case LE error is solved by just disconnecting the washing machine from main power outlet for 30 minutes.But if the problem is still the same then try cleaning the filter and draining the water from drain pump.This error occurs when motor stops functioning and water does not drain. --------------Also another cause of LE error is Regarding the LE ERROR CODE. This code is also caused by having a residue on the sensors in your unit. You have to use a HE liquid detergent.If you use fabric softener use half of the recommended amount and dilute if it is concentrated. Once a month (for a family of four) put 3 cups of white distilled vine-ager directly into the drum and select sanitary cycle or the hottest cycle you can. This prevents residue from forming in your unit and causing the LE ERROR CODE. ---------------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech,.

Kenmore Elite smartwash QuietPak9 F H error code


Press the Pause/Cancel button twice to clear the display then check if water is introduced into the machine. Drain the water from the machine by selecting Drain and Spin then pressing the Start button for one second. Empty the machine after the water is completely drained.

Start a new cycle with Hot/Cold water temperature and check how long before the error code appears after the cycle is started. When the code appears, press the Pause/Cancel button to clear the display then check again if water is introduced into the machine.

The pressure switch is not tripping and must be replaced if the error code appears about 8 minutes after the cycle is started and about 40 liters of water is introduced into the machine.

The flow meter is not working if the error code appears less than a minute after the cycle is started and about 3 liters of water is introduced into the machine.

The valve solenoids may not be working or the levers are stuck if the error code appears less than a minute after the cycle is started and no water is introduced into the machine.

Let us know which case above is observed for specific troubleshooting and repair guide.

I'm getting an error code LE on the control panel and there is still water in the bottom of the dishwasher. The cycle was almost finished. What is the problem?


This is a drainage issue. check the following to address this issue.

1. Air gap / Drain hoses
If there is an air gap (located in the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the top cap and see if there is anything blocking inside. Note: If there is no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.

If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher.

Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.

2. Broken belt
Some dishwasher models use a belt to drive the pump. Replace the belt if found broken.

Note: Sometimes the belt would just come off the pump. Even though it might not be broken, it is recommended that you replace the belt, because it is probably too stretched out.

3. Pump
Some models have two impellers inside the pump - one, wash impeller, takes care of the wash cycles, the other, drain impeller, drains the water out. If the drain impeller is broken (broken blades, shaft), the dishwasher would not drain. Replace any broken pump components.

4. Drain solenoid
Some models (for example most GE dishwashers) use a drain solenoid to drain water out. Sometimes the solenoid gets stuck, preventing the water from draining out. Try to free up the solenoid. If unsuccessful, you might have to replace the pump assembly.

5. Motor
If the motor is stuck, it is sometimes possible to free it up by manually spinning the motor.

Replace the motor if defective.

6. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

Will not complete rinse cycle


The LE stands for Leak Error. If you have confirmed that there is no actual leak, then the next thing to check is the routing of the drain hose. It is very common that that hose does not have a "high point" in the hose and the water is being siphoned out of the dishwasher and down the drain.

The quickest way to solve the problem is to raise the drain hose as high as possible under the counter and attach is securely. The BEST way to fix the problem is to install an Air Gap in the drain circuit (almost free at any real hardware store) but drilling may be needed.

Error code LE and OE


Hi there,
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
