The AE Error code on the screen of your LG dishwashing appliance signalizes there is a danger of leak in your device. The LG machine can show the AE error at any stage of the washing process. Generally, this code indicates a problem with the signal of the float sensor, a crucial part of the Aquastop system.
What can cause the AE Error?
One of the possible reasons for the occurrence of the AE code on the panel of your appliance is a wrong or excessive detergent, which creates too much foam while washing.
Another probability is the breakage or the wrong connection of the hosepipe. Some parts can be damaged: the rubber seal around the hatch, the door itself of the spray arm.
How to fix the AE Error?
There may have been a malfunction in the control unit. To eliminate the system glitch, unplug the machine and turn it back on after 10-20 minutes. If the code is still indicated, start a thorough examination of the appliance. Start with the hosepipe, inspect it for breakage or clogs, check the proper connection to the body of the machine.
Another possible cause of this error is water in the bottom tray (for LG models equipped with the Aquastop system). So you need to check all connections inside the machine that can contact with water. It is possible that some connection clamps could have broken off, so the washing machine is leaking, the float sensor is triggered and an error appears.
Here is the list of possible malfunctions that may require repair and professional assistance:
- Malfunction in the control unit. Some parts may need fixing or the whole unit has to be replaced.
- A sharp foreign object has pierced the tank or the cuff. The damaged element has to be replaced.
- One of the sockets in the washing machine has lost weight. Most often the drainpipe suffers from sharp objects from the laundry pockets during washing. It is necessary to replace the socket.
- The malfunction of the Aquastop system. Requires professional diagnostics and replacement.
