It says replace the air braker that must be some sort of air gap to prevent backflow of dirty water into the dishwasher.

I'd stick with a Whirlpool or one of the better known and reliable domestic brands. Dealing with service issues and parts for Asian and Euro products can prove frustrating down the line, so you have to weigh the next purchase with this in mind.

Would flushing the dishwasher with clean water help Jimbo?

Hey guys,
Could the Drain motor OE error code cause the IE error code?
The drain is very slow and if i open the door when the IE code comes on and close it again, the dishwasher keeps filling again and eventually the OE Error code comes back on when it cant drain properly. What do you think?

Why is the drain slow? Is the pump gone?

I believe so. That was the original problem right. Then i found two broken wires in the door and thought that might be it. When i was soldering them back together, i shorted out the pcm board. So today i replaced the board, and the first code i got was IE. But i was just thinking that maybe if is all timed, the drain comes on first and then the fill. So if the drain takes too much time, maybe the fill throws a code when it tries to start? what do you think?

That could have fried that hall sensor too when that board got fried.
I wish Tech Brian could tell us something.
