How To Reset The Samsung Dishwasher LC Error Code?


If the LC error code appears on your Samsung dishwasher, it means that water is leaking. You should figure out what’s causing the issue. This might be a false alarm due to a sensor misreading. First, ensure there aren’t any signs of water under your unit. If there is water, then the LC fault code on your screen is accurate. Follow these simple tips from Jacob Dillard (an engineer at Appliance Repair Expert) to get things back to normal.

How To Get Rid Of The LC Error Code On The Samsung Dishwasher?

Restarting the Samsung dishwasher cycle is one of the simplest solutions to solve this problem. This procedure may be used to resolve the majority of >error codes on the Samsung dishwasher. In this part, we’ll consider steps to take to get rid of the issue in more detail.

1. Clean all the filters, including the fine filter, at the bottom of the dishwasher.

Dishwasher filters

Main filter: The unique jet on the bottom sprayer grinds up food and dirt particles captured by this filter, and then the particles are rinsed down the sink.

Coarse filter: The coarse filter traps larger particles, such as glass or bone fragments, that could clog the drain. Squeeze the tabs on top of the filter gently to push out any trapped object.

Fine filter: During washing, this filter traps dirt and food residues in a sump where they cannot get back onto the dishes.

2. If you have a new unit, ensure the tape on the water wall reflector is removed. Additionally, double-check to see whether it is properly positioned.

3. Similarly, if the reflector has moisture or a water droplet, be careful to dry it.

4. Examine the drain hose to ensure it is not kinked or damaged. The button on the control panel may get stuck from time to time. So check if the button is functioning properly.

5. Restart the dishwasher at the new setting by turning it on. Examine the water pressure and temperature to check whether it fulfills the minimum pressure requirement. If not, then set the needed water flow pressure and temperature. (The water temperature should always be less than 80 degrees Celsius.)

6. Pour the detergent into the dispenser and start the dishwasher cycle again from the beginning. Also, don’t overfill the detergent dispenser; this might cause extra problems with your dishwasher.

7. Now start the dishwasher’s standard cycle, add your dirty utensils, and check for any issues.

You may encounter an LC/LE error code if your waste disposal is brand new. This is because garbage disposals have an inlet that manufacturers seal to prevent leaks. This is where you connect your dishwasher, if you have one, to the garbage disposal. For newer appliances, you will need to remove it. Read the manual to locate it and use a screwdriver and hammer to remove it. After starting the dishwasher, the error code should disappear.

We hope these solutions will assist you in removing the LC error code in your dishwasher. If you’re still having issues with your appliance, call Appliance Repair Expert.
