BUBBLE ERROR CODE

Cause

Oversudsing caused by improper detergent, such as liquid dish soap.

Solution

Do not use hand dishwashing liquids.

Dishes with foamy food, such as whipped cream may cause a bE error.

To clear the error, turn the appliance off and start a new cycle.

To remove detergent residue in the tub, pour approximately 4 oz ~ 8 oz of milk into a shallow bowl.

Then place it in the upper rack and then run the appliance on the Auto cycle.

  1. I have a ldt7808ss dishwasher that was having the be error code back in October of 23’. I replaced the motor and control board and it took care of the issue until now. Which is 8 months later. Just wanting to know my next step?
    Thanks Travis.

    1. bE error is typically a detergent usage or leveling type issue. Since the two parts that on rare occasion could cause that code have been replaced it is likely not a bad part. Check further into the detergent usage and check the leveling of the unit.
