My LG dishwasher has stopped working. I have had it 2.5 years. After one year the float assembly stopped working and was replaced, ti was all gunked up. In recent months the unit has been groaning and moaning but still working. Would occasionally get an error code. I think it was E01, But start it again and it would run. I likened the moaning and groaning to a bear coming out of its den in the spring feeling hungry and miserable at being woken up. Ha Ha. Any how it finally stopped cleaning at all. Soap would be launched but undissolved - seemed to be no spray. So I sat down this morning to browse this forum and then decided I should start it up once more to really note the symptoms and any error code that appeared. No groaning this time, just a soft buzz which I assume was the motor trying to kick in. This was right off the bat after the dishwasher did its initial drain. I waited for it to stop and give me an error code. But after a few minutes I smelled smoke - I opened the door and smoke came out but the noise did not stop. I then pushed the power button and panel lights went out but the buzzing did not stop. I had to go down and flip the breaker to get it to shut down. Based on what I have seen and read I am guessing it needs a new sump assembly. Any thoughts?
Having only had this dishwasher for 2.5 years and this being the second time it has broken down I wonder if I should just junk it and try a different brand.
