We regret the trouble you have experienced with this dishwasher. An OE error code suggests a DRAINAGE problem with the unit. It is recommended to check for a clogged, kinked, or frozen drain hose. If this does not resolve the matter, then the unit may require service. To make service arrangements, you may either contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000, or you can check our Repair Provider Lookup on our website, at http://www.lg.com/us/support/repair....

We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this dishwasher. It is normal that plastic dishes are not completely dry by the end of a dishwasher cycle. The reason for this is that the plastic material cannot retain sufficient heat required to perform the dry function. The only thing we can recommend is to dry plastic dishes by hand once the DRY cycle is complete.

We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this dishwasher. There is not a food trap on this unit to be checked. However, it is recommended to review and follow the maintenance suggestions listed on page 15 of your manual. It is also suggested to run a QUICK WASH cycle with detergent without loading dishes.

I apologize, but no; there is no way to manually adjust the length of the wash cycle of this dishwasher. Much of the length of time would be involved with the DRY cycle. If this portion of the cycle is interrupted, the unit will not retain enough heat for the drying process.

The bottom arm of the dishwasher does not seem to be working. Had a repairman here and he is not sure what the issue is. Any idea what the problem could be? The top rack seems to be cleaning. Thanks for any advice

We regret the trouble you have experienced with this dishwasher. There is more than one possibility that could prevent the lower sprayer arms from working, while the top continues to clean. This could be something caught in the sprayer lines, the spray nozzle holes, or its could be something electrical in the control board. As we are not technicians, it would be recommended to have a qualified service technician inspect the unit.

Question

Dishes not fully clean post strong cycle, what's wrong?

Do we need a maintenance cleaning of dishwasher tubes or filters. Even with pre-washing before loading food becomes stuck to dishes, especially silverware.

If this does not resolve the matter, then the unit may require service.

We regret the trouble you have experienced with this dishwasher. The water should certainly turn off to limit the water flow. If this is not the case, then the dishwasher may require service.
