SOURCE: E1 error on LG dishwasher

As per my email reply chazmano5, the problem is likely to be the water pump/motor assy.

They have a very common fault of the impeller breaking on the motor shaft. The motor still spins, but the impeller doesn't, so there is no water being pumped.

The machine senses there is no water pressure and shuts down, displaying E1 (eg: it thinks no water pressure means there must be a water leak) Unfortunately the motor/impeller is only available as a complete assembly.

SOURCE: Water will not dispense. Will not make ice. Maybe

NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
Check Temp inside freezer. It has to be down to about 10 or 15 degrees
This can cause slow ice making if its too high even tho its freezing everything else at 25 degrees
The ref. temp should be about 33-35
The Freezer temp should be 0 to 10 Any thing below these temps is overkill and a waste of elect
The higher the number you turn it up to is the coldest
See if water is in icemaker.
Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects.
If it ejects thenyou need to replace water valve in rear bottom of fridge(Its the part that
attaches to water line out of wall)
If it doesn't eject then it is a faulty Ice Maker.
If its leaking or no water at icemaker or door either one, then the valve at the rear bottom of ref needs replacing
First I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if freezer control is turned WARMER, which makes the Ref. colder
Also if it is getting drinking water to the door but not to the icemaker (or vice versa) Then you need to replace
the water valve at the bottom rear of the fridge. It is a double valve and one side is not working
Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath

Why would my GE (model # TBX18SA) just stop making ice?


Is there any ice remaining in the slots of the ice maker? If not then the water control valve will need to be replaced. If the ice maker still has ice in the cube slots and does nothing then it is the ice maker that needs to be replaced. Here is the=> WR30X10093 Ice Maker for your TBX18SA and the=> WR57X10033 Water Inlet Valve

Ice maker that fills will water dispensed through refrigerator door.


the valve is probably operated by a celenoid, if you removed it during the hose replacement it may be installed incorrectly, out of line or not have a good ground.

No water no ice


Change the=> 67006531 Water Inlet Valve I believe the side of your 67006531 Water Inlet Valve that controls water flow to the ice maker has weakened and cannot open properly. Replace the water valves and I believe the ice maker will work fine, Sea Breeze

Hi, I have a Kenmore Elite Refrigerator model #596.76253702 that leaks water from the bottom every time the ice maker refills. The problem keeps getting worse since I purchased this product 2 years ago.


If it overfills and drips, look for an adjustment behind the plastic endcover with a +/- on it. - is less water.
If it continuously drips, replace the water inlet valve on the back where the house water supply comes in.


Ice maker water not stopping
The water inlet valve may be staying open. You can swap the wires on the dual water inlet valve and disconnect the water line at the valve which goes to the ice maker. When you try the water dispenser the water will come out there. When you stop the water dispenser, if the water at the valve doesn't stop, the valve isn't closing so you'll need to replace it. If it does stop after trying it several times then the problem is with the ice maker.

My icemaker on LG refrigerator is making very few ice cubes


Hello,

If the ice maker is producing ice poorly, making small cubes or too few cubes then it means your ice maker is probably have a clogged water line, a defective water-inlet valve, or a defective ice maker mold thermostat that is not cycling properly.

First, check the water line that's attached to the back of the refrigerator. Make sure it is having a good water flow. If the flow is poor, that means you will have to, repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water in the ice maker.

Second, check the water-inlet valve. You will need to replace the water inlet valve if it has failed.

Third, check the freezer temperature. It should be 8 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. If the freezer is too warm, the ice maker won't cycle properly.

Lastly, check the ice maker mold thermostat. Make sure that it's cycling properly.

The above is what you need to check on........

I hope this helps....

Take care.

Model gd5shaxLT02 stopped making ice. Looks like


The water inlet valve on the back of unit where the water supply connects opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze blocking the fill tube.. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

A strainer before the inlet valve can also get stopped up restricting flow.
