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

SOURCE: i have an lg dishwasher mod#LDF7811ST, get error codeIE, changed the inlet valve, machine worked once then got IE error code again. Any suggestions?

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).

SOURCE: lg versa shuts itself off couple of times a day

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

G'day
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.

SOURCE: I have a LG 42LD 550 just got it, couple day, it

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)

My wm2455h turns on by itself and after some time, it turns off. What is causing this>


It seems that the Main Control Board of your washing machine is playing up. The fact that when you unplug the machine from the mains, the main control board resets itself and you are able to start the machine points in this direction.

No power at. Maybe the fuse blew. Is there a fuse? If so how can I find it . Lg dishwasher model LDF7811ST/01


Don't believe there is a fuse. Before you dig into the dishwasher check the outlet that it was connected to. Make sure the wiring didn't come loose from there, or that the cord to the dishwasher isn't damaged.

Im receiving an OE error code on my LG Dishwasher Model LDF7811st. The machine runs for a little bit and then it dings a few times with the "OE" code and stops running. HELP please


The LG error code OE simply means "the pump is blocked". Presumably the water isn't being emptied properly. As with all error codes it is possible that there is a cause other than the exact description in the error code explanation but basically this error means as far as the washing machine is concerned it thinks the water isn't pumping out. A pump, or filter blockage is the most common cause but it could be caused by other faults such as a faulty pump, or even a blockage in the drain hose or somewhere else in the system etc.


LG themselves have some information on this error code..

LE error message on the panel


Depending on the serial # of the dishwasher it may need a new wire harness and inner door liner.

LE is a motor circuit error.

Contact LG @ 1 800 243-0000 they may help you out.

ERROR CODE "TE"


The MOSt common reason for a "tE" error code is the temperature of the hot water from the hot water heater is greater thant 145 degrees (F)
Adjust your hot water heater down and measure the temp at the kictchen tap.
Good Luck!
