Question about LG 24 in. LDF 7811 Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

Silverware becomes cloudy and is difficult to polish

After several washings silverware becomes dull and cloudy. This condition is almost impossible to remedy after repeated washings. There is no polish that cleans it quickly. This situation seems to build up and get worse after time. We did not have this problem till we purchased our LG.
All conditions are the same as with the old washer.

Many thanks,

Hard water is the reason for the white residue spots. There is a new product out at www.dishwasherfilter.com that is made specifically to fix this problem. It filters the water going only into your dishwasher leaving your dishes spot free with every load. It is very affordable and guaranteed to work or your money back. You will love the way your dishes look after the very first load.

The new water-conserving dishwashers, including the LG LDF 7811 are very sensitive to the dishwasher soap that is used.
If you notice white staining beneath the soap dispenser at the end of each full wash and possibly undissolved powder remaining in the dispenser, I recommend you stop using that powder and buy a box of Electrosol or Cascade powder and use it in place of what you currently use. Avoid using gel or tablets in all dishwashers.
I experienced very similar problems with the LDF8812 that I personally own. First step to fix was pulling the filter (10 phillips screws) rinsing the filter as best possible, remove all debris. Replace filter and spray arm.
Place a bowl filled with white vinegar in a bowl on the rack of the empty dishwasher. Run a quick wash cycle to the end.
Look closely at the RinseAid cap inside the door, remove it and turn the little dial to a lower number. Over time, adjust it up if dishes are not drying properly.
Use the dishwasher normally - do not overly pre-rinse the dishes because the food particles are actually used during the wash cycle to help clean the dishes. Also, do not over load the dispenser cup with soap. A Tablespoon will do it. If you run out of the rinse aid, feel free to use white vinegar.

Door will not shut when upper silverware holder is in


Make sure you are installing that silverware holder properly. The little tabs of the silverware holder are supposd to go over and around the mating bars of the upper rack. Barring that, your upper rack may be pulled (bent) out, and you may have to push it (hard) to get it back in shape.

Is it more expensive to buy stainless steel or silver silverware/flatware?


Silver is more expensive than stainless steel. Silverware pricing is high as silver is a precious metal and silverware is considered to be an heirloom. So if price is not a problem for you then silverware is the way to go. But if you want some thing more cost-effective, then choose stainless steel.

What is gold silverware?


Gold silverware, more properly gold flatware, is flatware which includes gold in its construction. Pure gold silverware is extremely unusual, because gold is such a soft metal that it will be easily damaged in routine use. More commonly, the flatware is gold plated or accented with gold. Department stores and companies which manufacture flatware often carry several versions of gold flatware, which can be customized with monograms and crests as desired.

Water is not draining. Several in inches of water in the bottom after running a cycle.


Check the drain hose routing. It must be placed so as to be higher than the drain into which it empties. Also check the filters in the bottom of the unit, around the water tower. They can become plugged with food and other debris and not let the water to drain out as it should. If it seems to be leaving food and such on the plates and silverware, after the wash cycle, it's possible the drain prop has lost one or more of it's fins, or has become loose on the drive shaft.

Our Maytag MDB9100AWB is 5 years old. Have had repairman out several times. Problem is a light cloudy scum on everything. He has replaced several items, has had us clean parts and fixtures, etc and even...


There are three typical causes of chronic cloudiness on glassware/dishes.
  1. The incoming water may be too hot. Make sure the water is at or below 140 degrees F.
  2. Test to see if cloudiness is removable by hand cleaning or soaking for 5 minutes in white vinegar. If it is removable, it's due to hard water. Use a good quality detergent, and match the amount of detergent used to the water hardness and use a rinse aid. (Some low quality detergents clean poorly and leave a film.)
  3. Glassware may be etched, due to too much detergent, too high water temperature, or pre-washing. Etching is not reversible, so it's important to correct the problem promptly.
Hopefully these hints will help you to home in on the problem.

Silverware is dull and filmy


How is the water hardness in your area. If my watersoftener is low on salt I get this problem. Also you could try a rinsing agent in the little spot beside the dish washing detergent. Some detergents I find also leave a film. I find Cascade works the best.
