Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

E1 fault code Dishwasher runs for about 5 minutes. Water fills up at bottom of unit and then machine seems to pause then fault code E1 appears then water is pumped out from bottom of machine. There are no leaking pipes and drain is installed correctly. I installed a new wash pump and fault still appears.

Hi,
I think both the heater and thermostat / trip switches need to be checked.
If water is going in and out ok, then it seems to be waiting to heat the water. It sees a fault - so just clears out.
Heating elements do fail after a few years.

    HOW TO CLEAR CODE E1 ON LG DISHWASHER ?


    The 1E error or fault code is to indicate that the washer is not filling with water. Check to be sure the water supply valves are open. Also, check to be sure the water supply hoses aren't kinked or clogged. Next, remove the hoses from the washing machine and run water into a bucket to test the pressure and flow of the water. If all of these check out and you have good water pressure and flow to the machine, you should replace the water inlet valve.

    Hello & Welcome to FixYa

    F4 error in your Asko Dishwasher is a water fill fault and this indicates and over fill fault. To check and solve this problem please follow these steps:

    1. Disconnect the power to the unit

    2. Remove the lower access panels and check the tray under the dishwasher (you will probably find it is full of water)

    3. Use a towel or a sponge to remove the water

    4. There is a float that should stop the operation of the dishwasher and run the pump if water is in this tray. Check this pump to see if it is functional

    5. Test the dishwasher

    6. If there are no leaks from the dishwasher into the pan, check the drain hose under the sink

    7. THE DRAIN HOSE MUST RUN UP TO THE TOP OF THE UNDERSIDE OF THE COUNTERTOP THEN DOWN TO THE DRAIN. (If the hose is not set up like this, water from the sink drain will flow into the dishwasher and overfill the tray

    Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

    LG dishwasher error code E1


    E1 is a code that the dishwasher displays after detecting a leak. There is a sensor on the pan at the very bottom of the unit. Take the bottom front panel off, look under the unit at the hose coming off the pump and your fill line to be sure no water is dripping. Run the unit in a wash cycle while doing this if possible.

    E1 error code on my kenwood dishwasher [kwd243a


    Hi
    The E1error code indicates a water inlet error.
    To access test mode: press and hold Normal+Eco, and press Power. Release buttons. Then press Start(display n:01).Press Start again (display shows water level frequency-not important). Press Start again-(display n:03-motor will be running). Press Start again (display n:04-drain pump will run). Press Start again (display n:05-inlet valve will come on and machine should fill with water). You have now tested major components are working-if you keep pressing start you will scroll thru and test other functions, like heater, dispensor etc, but not needed for your fault.
    If Machine didn't fill with water in test mode, you probably have a faulty inlet valve (test resistence should be approx 3.7-4 k ohm).
    If inlet valve has tested OK ie machine filled with water in test mode then:
    Disconnect from power.
    Remove side panels (need to remove top, and bottom front panel to then be able to remove sides)
    - Check no water in base of machine-water in base will indicate machine has leaked and activated the safety device which shuts off inlet valve.
    - If OK, you probably have a faulty flow meter(measures water intake). Located left hand side of machine, large plastic compartment, which has a sensor at the bottom with 3 wires (red,white,black) that go up to control board. Replace entire flow meter assy-relatively inexpensive part.
    - If you still have problem, then control board is faulty, it is much more likely to be flow meter .

    hi...
    If the cycle doesn't complete, check these....
    Water-heating cycle Many dishwashers heat the wash and/or rinse water to a higher temperature, as the cycle calls for it. In these cycles, the dishwasher pauses after it has filled with water, waiting for the water to reach the pre-set temperature. What happens next, depends, as follows:

    • On some units, the pause is timed and the unit continues after the allotted time.


    • On others, the cycle can't continue until the water reaches the higher temperature. If you have this type of dishwasher and the water isn't being heated (say, because of a problem with the heating element or thermostat), after the unit stops at the heating cycle, it never continues. When you repair the heating-system problem, the "cycle problem" is fixed too.


    Timer Timers don't often fail. But if every other part of the dishwasher seems to be working properly and the timer knob seems to be stuck in one place--doing one function continuously--the timer may be at fault. Dishwasher timers can't be repaired. If yours is defective, replace it.

    if still it doesn't fix your problem then see whether any error codes are generated....
    F1 Water heating fault, selected temperature not reached within 60 minutes · Incoming water temperature too cool
    · Heating element burned out
    · Thermostat defective F2 High water level · Plugged/Bad water pump
    · Defective water inlet valve F3 Thermistor fault · Open thermistor
    · Bad wiring to thermistor F4 Fault with water fill (only on machines with level-controlled fill)

    Note: Lights blinking, pump running and controls dead indicates an over fill fault 1. Disconnect the power to the unit

    2. Remove the lower access panels and check the tray under the dishwasher (you will probably find it is full of water)

    3. Use a towel or a sponge to remove the water

    4. There is a float that should stop the operation of the dishwasher and run the pump if water is in this tray. Check this pump to see if it is functional

    5. Test the dishwasher

    6. If there are no leaks from the dishwasher into the pan, check the drain hose under the sink

    7. THE DRAIN HOSE MUST RUN UP TO THE TOP OF THE UNDERSIDE OF THE COUNTERTOP THEN DOWN TO THE DRAIN. (If the hose is not set up like this, water from the sink drain will flow into the dishwasher and overfill the tray

    *Faults may vary by model. Use this as a general guide.
    i think these details would definitely help you.....thank you...

    LG Dishwasher making grinding noise then blinking E1 code 10 minutes later


    Well done by resolving this problem. The other way to avoid the siphoning problem through the drain hose is adding an air gap valve/connector (available at any hardware store). You can use it even if you don't have a garbage disposal in your kitchen sink. That will assure that you have the proper height of the drain hose.
    Hope this helps!

    It's probably the heater element that has gone, but it could be a simpler fault like the pressure switch not activating. See this video it should give you the general idea
