We recently bought a LG 7920ST stainless steel dishwasher. It doesn't properly was the dishes. Leaves food stuck on and doesn't clean the top rack at all. In fact, the glasses are dirtier afterward then they were in the first place. We have tried running it with no dishes as we read that might help and it did not. We also use jet dry and still horrible. Water pressure shouldn't be a problem either. Any thoughts?


we had the same problem with a new dishwasher. The repair man told us that the liquid soap would froth too much and not fully rinse out of the system. So the food particles stayed in the trap and wouldn't rinse away. Also the drain hose needs to be looped up to the top of the dishwasher or ran directly down to drain so the wash water doesn't just drain back into the dishwasher. Also check you top rack water jets to see if there are food particles which move into the holes and block the water flow on that level. Hope this helps :-)

IT is leaving food on the dishes


You do not have to prewash your dishes before loading them. In fact, by prewashing, you actually defeat the purpose of most dishwasher detergents. These detergents are activated by the grease and oils in food and work better. You should only scrape your plates of solid materials that are not recommended to go into a dishwasher (i.e., celery, popcorn kernels, tough chunks of meat, gristle, etc.).

If you are getting food particles on your dishes, this is known as "redeposition". Most commonly it is caused by food particles trapped in the filter of the main wash pump. You will need to remove the lower spray arm and access the filter screens and clean them of all debris.

If you need further assistance on how to disassemble your dishwasher to access the filter, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER. I hope this information is helpful to you.

Food left on dishes, and glasses are very cloudy. We use rince aid, and have tried several detergents. Water temperature has been turned up twice.


The problem is hard water. Go to www.dishwasherfilter.com. They have a new product out that solves this problem once and for all. It filters the water entering your dishwasher and removes the hard minerals that cause these spots. Very affordable and guaranteed to leave your dishes looking amazing every time.
