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