Hi, welcome to Just answer
Please tell me its complete model number
and how old is it ?
The model number is LDW45S12, it is about a year old
E1 error means fill time exceeded pre set timeThe problem is due to a leak in the base of the dishwasher...you will have to unplug the appliance then pull it out and tilt the unit around 45 degrees to drain the water...you can also take off the drain pump and try to clean it completely...check and make sure there is no leak ...let me know how it goes
I have emptied the water out and then plugged it back in and turned the power on. the display console and all the program lights are now flashing. and the machine wont do anything else
are you sure everything is cleaned and you have assembled it back correctly ?
