Title: LG Dishwasher PF Code LDF6920ST
Post by: ejbrandt on February 12, 2019, 07:36:05 PM
So I started the DW cycle and walked away. A few minutes later I noticed the DW had shut off. So I checked the circuit breaker and it was not tripped but the GFI was tripped.  When I reset the GFI the DW motor was running and it continued to run even with the door open but it wasn't running in a cycle.  So I tapped the side thinking the float was stuck and it finally went off.


I then set the cycle to start the wash and although it ran thru the cycle fine it really seemed to labor.  The dishes were clean but I am a little leary.


Anyone else had a similar experience?


Not sure why it tripped the GFI, never done this??


Not sure why it kept running but not running a cycle??

You might have water leaking that activated the emergency drain pump mode.  Also water will trip a GFCI faster than anything.  Also, appliances that use water are not recommended to be placed on outlets that use a GFCI.
