My LG dishwasher is returning a 1E or IE error, which means a water inlet problem according to the manual. I checked for a clogged water supply and water inlet hose, and replaced the water inlet valve. I'm not sure what to check next and would appreciate some guidance.

Thanks,
Chris

From the LDS5811ST Service Manual


Did you "Measure the electric resistance of Inlet Valve. (950-1300 Ω)"

Is there any water coming in?   If yes - could be flow meter .. If no - could be water safety shut off valve or connecting wires.

The dishwasher pauses at the point where it would begin filling with water and then the error appears.  Water doesn't enter the dishwasher.  How do I test the water safety shutoff valve?

The inlet valve measures 1107 Ω.

Thanks,
Chris

If you could check for voltage at the Water Valve when it should be filling...

 

Try disconnecting the Water Valve outlet from the DishWasher and run the output into a bucket.

remove the door panel and inspect the wires near the bottom of the door. the wires get buried in the tar like insulation causing the wires to break as the door is opened and closed.

I removed the front panel and found one broken wire and two others with cracked insulation.  I spliced all three back together and I'm back in business.  Thanks, everyone, for your advise and great call, denrayr!

they sell a new door panel that has better insulation, but it is expensive. i have been tempted to take some thick flexible plastic and put it behind the wires so it can melt into the tar insulation and protect the wires. You should attemt to do something to prevent the wires from digging into the insulation or you are going to be doing this again.

I had the same thought -- I'll have to hunt around for something suitable, like spiral wiring harness wrap (although some HDPE from a milk jug would probably suffice). At least the fix is easy!

i was thinking more along the lines of page protectores that fit into a 3 ring binder like these



Some 3m 77 spray adhesive would help it stick until the tar melts to it.
