Our 5 year old LG DW LDF6810ST, is giving an error code of IE. I've taken it apart and have done the following, checked the water valve screen, float valve reservoir & all hoses with no blockages. Water fills up just fine in the dishwasher and then just before it should start to wash, it gives the error. It first would not work on power scub only, then it would work normal for a few washes, then upper only, now not at all. just give the error. I tried different settings and it would maybe work 2 out of the 10 tries. Any suggestions as to what the problem might be? And how I can fix it?

Remove the *front panel* of the dishwasher.

Thoroughly examine the wiring which runs from the bottom of the door to up to the detergent dispenser assy.

On older LG dishwashers---the sound deadening/insulation material was made of a tar-like substance---which caused wires to become imbedded/stuck then broken (pulled apart).

Repair as needed---then wrap the wire loom with electrical tape. Place a small section of cardboard between the wire harness.
Re-install front panel and test dishwasher.

ADDITIONAL NOTES:

The LG 6810 dishwasher is a model with the older SUMP ASSEMBLY (6871DD1002B).

The SUMP ASSY (Wash Motor) is a "flawed" component.

When failing---the wash performance is subpar and the wash motor is usually noisy during the cycle.

New SUMP ASSYs resolved this problem (AJH31248604)


To eliminate:

Musty odor

L-O-N-G cycle times

Dingy/yellowing whites

Suds error message

Slow spin speeds

Intermittent water leaks (from rear of washer)

And other annoying symptoms which vary brand-to brand.

Read below:

The *correct* amount of HE (High Efficiency) detergent that should be used in any front load or agitatorless top load washer with tub sizes 3.0 cu ft and larger is as follows:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Wash Load

HE 2X: (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X: (1) Teaspoon

Perform a TUB CLEAN CYCLE every (4) months.

Use: "Tide Washing Machine Cleaner"

Hey Guys, What a small world this is after all. She ordered the Sump Assembly through the link that RegUS_PatOff provided and then called me to install it. When I arrived we started a cycle and the water started filling then it showed the EI code. Because she had the Sump Assembly in hand and that it may be a flawed component, she decided to go ahead and install it. After I installed the Sump Assembly, but before I re-installed the D/W, I took the front panel off. The wires were all stuck to the black tar-like material. Upon closer inspection, the Red, Blue, and Brown wires were broken. I cut, stripped and crimped the wires back together, re-installed the D/W, tested and it is working again! She commented on how quiet the new Sump sounded compared to the old one.

On behalf of me and the customer, ewssvc1, I would like to thank you for this website and the people that make it so great. Thanks Samurai, Thanks Reg, Thanks John, and Thanks to everyone else that contributes!
