again i havent had the pleasure of working on the float assembly yet. when the second float activates is the machine still underfilled?

yeah its actually in the process of filling up, so somes coming in then some goes out.  If i manually keep the switch from activating then it overflows out the top of the float assembly.  I tried switching the micro switches to make sure one of them wasnt bad and they both seem to work fine.  My only logical guess is maybe the flow meter wire which someone mentioned could be bad.  Not really a way to test it so guess i will just order one.  Would love some more help on this one.  Im about ready to give up.  IF anybody is around the San Antonio/New Braunfels area let me know.

anymore input will be appreciated.

run the diagnostic cycle by pressing rinse+time delay+power switch then press time delay 4 times. this will activate the fill test, the display will read the frequency of the flow meter.....

may not be enough water...

is it an E1 or a 1E error ?

LDS5811 Service Manual


Do you have the service manual for the LDF6810BB?

I have the same 1E error problem with my dishwasher.

I also have water coming into the unit but I get 1E errors a lot but not all the time. It also seems to mainly happen at the start of the rinse cycle.

Thanks in advance!

Okay i ran test and it starts counting like stopwatch...The drain pump kicks on around 260.  I will double check it again.  IS that normal or should it just flash up 1 number?

Okay i ran the test mode again, delay button 4 times.  IT starts counting like a stopwatch and it just keeps going i let it go up to 8:00 and it was still ticking away and filling the machine with water and of course pumping water out.   What does this mean? Or am i just dumb and am missing something crucial?

Thanks again for sticking with me through this problem.

can you jam the secondary float so it wont trip? i would jam the float then do the test with the door open and see if when the counter gets to 315 the water level is where it should be. the reason you want the door open is so you can stop the test if it looks like the machine is going to overfill and flood.

well either the DW is not getting rid of all the water or there frequnecy meter is not counting right because if i hold the second float to activate drain until no more water will come out then start test the ticker gets to about 2:20 and the dw is full up to the 2nd rim and overflowing that.  IM not sure how much more you can fill it past 2nd rim before it flows over but i stopped there. 

Furthermore if i let the dw fill up to the 2nd rim which is enough to run it (b/c ive added water from a pitcher to that line and then the mahcine runs) i have to manually hold the float mechanism so it will reach that point, once i let go the drain pump kicks of for like 20 seconds and takes the water level below the 1st rim.

What to do next?

Stay with me here please. :?

i really think a flow meter will solve your problem. it sounds like the meter is binding and not giving a true reading

I get them through repair clinic.com  IF you give them your tax id number for your business (appliance repair) they give you 20% off.  They ship fast and i like their site.  ITs not the best but for LG parts its the easiest.    Think that assembly cost me like 35 bucks.
