LG dishwasher drain pump
Model Number: LDS4821BB Brand:
1 - 5 years
Anyone??? Last fall I had a problem with a high pitched sound just prior to my dishwasher beginning the drain cycle and a few weeks later, the error code OE displayed on the circuit panel (LG dishwasher). I looked up the code, disassembled the drain unit and noticed dental floss wrapped around the chopping blade. I cleaned everything and put back together... It worked great.
About 6 weeks ago, the dishwasher started with the drain pump draining the water, and then staying on for several more minutes, at least 3 mins perhaps more. There is never any water left in the basin, however, I can't leave the house with the dishwasher running for fear of the drain motor not shutting off, overheating and then causing a fire.
The drain problems causes the total wash cycle to run about 15 plus minutes over each cycle.
Will I need to replace the pump? Should I check for something else?
I've had great responses to previous posts regarding other appliances, so I'm hoping for the same this time.....
