Might be a silly question, but did you or anyone else in house maybe accidentally turn off the water supply to dishwasher?
Ok if not, how clean is your water supply? Do you have rust particles etc in your water? Is your house a new construction? You might just have debis blocking the screen in your hose to the dishwasher.
turn off water supply to dishwasher take off hose at back of washer and check screen. If clean, and water supply is good then
(assuming you checked in the dishwasher and there is no water in the washer) you have a number of possibilities.
simplest is the electric water valve is bad and needs replaced.
hardest is a computer board/relay is bad.
both problems need electrical testers and knowledge how to use them. If you have both go ahead if not call a repair person.
Good Luck,
Gary

SOURCE: Error Code 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

Good Luck!!!

SOURCE: My Samsung DMR57 Dishwasher gives me error code

Our unit started displaying code 9E after filling, draining and filling again. At the beginning it was enough just to restart it. Finally this trick didn't work anymore. Before calling service for out of warranty I decided to take the unit out of the cabinet and start it. Of course this didn't fixed the problem. Then i noticed where the water comes in and I took off the panel on the left side bottom. 366571e.jpg
Under the panel there is a white box that has a floater inside. The floater is pushing a lever that actuates a micro switch. I noticed that the lever wasn't moving as the machine started to fill in with water. The lever was stuck. An easy touch on the lever fixed the problem and the machine started working. 677e4ea.jpg
I will put back the washer for now but if it happens again in the next future i'll have to find a more permanent fix.

SOURCE: Samsung DMT300RFS dishwasher; low-level water error

A Samsung service tech showed me how to fix this one. You can take that float and the white box apart from the dishwasher and once opened, if its like mine, there will be gunk on the float and in the box at the line where it fills with water. This gunk floats in there and prevents the float from swinging and activating the switch. Just clean that gunk out with a toothbrush, I end up doing mine about once every four months, and it should work fine again. This tech said to prevent this, make sure the water is hot at the beginning of the cycle and pre-rinse the dishes-but this doesn't seem to work with mine.

I have a low level water error code on a Samsung dmt 300 rfb model dishwasher normal and heavy and quick lights .are flashing after it runs for a couple minutes


There are a couple or reasons that this might be happening. One is the heating element in the bottom ALSO heats the water to a higher temp. If it is burned out, that can cause the issue. Another is the fill valves may have screens on them that are full of debris.
The last would be the control panel and it is not cheap.

Samsung dishwasher heavy and delicate lights blink and cycle stops


The lights that are blinking are indicating an error code--the particular code you describe is a "heater error". You will have to check the circuit for an open heater element, loose or broken wire, defective main control board. The part number for the main board is DE92-02256C. Hope I helped you!

This is an exhausting procedure you have described here. Have you checked the float in the low water reservoir is actually working.

Kenmore elite dishwasher model 630 Smart Wash light is flashing


You may want to try:
Press a series of four buttons in quick succession. Press "Heated Dry," "Normal Wash," "Heated Dry" and "Normal Wash" to instruct your Kenmore dishwasher to run a short diagnostic test.
Wait for two minutes while your Kenmore dishwasher runs its diagnostic test.
Press the "Cancel/Drain" button once your dishwasher has completed its diagnostic test. This should reset your dishwasher control panel.
Check to make sure that there's no standing water in the bottom of your dishwasher. Standing water in your dishwasher may indicate that your dishwasher has stopped mid-cycle. You will need to press the "Cancel/Drain" button before you can reset your dishwasher control panel.

F4 message on the top drawer, fisher paykel. I clean the filters and arm every week or two.


There 2 possibilities with this error:
1)
  • Fault with water fill (only on machines with level-controlled fill)
  • Note: Lights blinking, pump running and controls dead indicates an over fill fault
2)--4 Flashes--Draining failure. Drain pump, control board OWI or water indicator defect

LG dishwasher model LDF6920WW 1 1/2 years old approximately. Suddenly stops a minute or so into cycle (it drains remaining water and fills with new water then get LE error). When I open the door at the...


The manufacturer has assigned this error or fault code to indicate a problem with the water circulation pump motor. Turn the appliance off for 30 minutes to allow it to cool. Then, restart the cycle. If the error code returns check the wiring to the pump motor. Also, if the wash impeller is broken this error can appear. If the impeller and wire harness check out, and the code keeps returning, you will probably need to replace the pump and motor assembly.

Washer is showing E12 error. Help


Hello.

This code means an error code. That the dishwasher electronic control has detected a condition it needs to check. When you see a code, follow these steps to solve the problem:

· Press "Stop/Clear" to clear the display and stop the beeping if any.

· Reprogram the dishwasher.


· If the code still displays, turn off the power to the dishwasher at your breaker box and wait five minutes and clean all part (area) that are open to water carefully before turning it back on.

Zanussi ZDT6252 stops 1min into cycle


You need to reset the computer on the bottom. Had the same problem with mine. The Blinking led means the heating element is bad and will not operate.
