Both families and singles trust in their LG dishwashers to speed up after-meal cleanup, freeing up time for other pursuits. However, when their dishwashers begin showing error codes, frustration arises when they don't know what each one means or how to rectify the problem. Use these error code troubleshooting tips to keep your dishwasher operating as it should.
Error code IE lets you know when the water level in your LG dishwasher didn't reach its normal level within 10 minutes. Two common causes for this problem are a water supply cut-off valve that isn't fully open or a kinked water inlet supply hose. If those parts are in working order, check the filter screen for a clog. A blocked filter screen means that you need to replace the water inlet valve.
Your LG dishwasher displays error code OE when there's a problem with the drain, and it pops up if the machine fails to drain after 5 minutes of drain pump operation. Check for and remove clogs in the drain. Next, unplug your dishwasher and check the drain pump's wiring and reconnect any loose wires. If the drain pump is clogged or damaged, replace it with new dishwasher parts.
Error code EI indicates water leakage from the tub, which makes the wash pump motor speed up. Check to see if the drain hose is installed at the proper height, which prevents water from siphoning out of the tub during the cycle. Seek further dishwasher repair help if you find leaks in the tub or pump.
