    When the dishwasher starts the cycle it sounds like it starts then stops then starts again. It just keeps stopping and starting at the begining of the cycle. The dishwasher is about 2 years old.

Hi,

Initially, does your model have "JetDry" feature? If yes, have you tried that?

Some LG models have been known to really have a Long wash cycle ~3 hours. If your unit is longer than the usual, then their could possible be issues with the blower/heater dryer. Although low incoming water pressure could also affect if the unit will not fill up with water on the expected length of time it is supposed to.

Initial course of action would be:

  • check if heater works (you can actually feel if it warms up to heat dry);
  • check incoming water pressure;
  • sometimes the cycles extends if the drain is not working properly, might as well check that up also.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

This sounds like the electronic timer in the circutry control board , if you still have the warranty you should use that , otherwise you will need an electronic tech, that works on these new electronic controlled appliances

    it definately needs to be check out by a pro to determine what is happening and what is not and some test that require knowledge of electronic and mechanical devices

    if this is something you can do then it needs tests done and a service manual that discribes the electronic and electrical circutry as wel as the plumming functions

How long did it usually take to finish? Do you know which part of the cycle is taking a long time? Like when it starts when you hear it running. How long have you owned the unit? Once I have more information I can assist you further.
Thanks,
Lee

How long is the light wash cycle suppossed to run and does the options cycle need to be run too? i have put my machine on light cycle and it runs back and forth from sensing to wash .. stops and goes back...


Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.Yes it is normal. The length of the cycle depends on the water temperature entering the unit and the options selected. The unit has a sensor that checks the water constantly until it is clean. A normal cycle on this unit with options selected can last two hours. And stopping the unit and opening the door extends the time also.
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..

Dishwashe FDB510LC50 gets stck on wash cycle untl


Most probable failure is the thermostat that senses the water temperature. The way to test it to run a cycle with all the options turned off. It it completes the cycle normally, then it's the thermostat (part number 154290204), if it still takes hours, then it's a board/timer

Check your program settings. If wash quality is good, it's OK. Check your inlet water has sufficient pressure! Refer user manual

The washing cycle takes 2 hours to complete


Make sure the sani cycle is not selected, or pots and pans, also with the dry cycle most will take about 2 hours, if your dishes are not that dirty use the short cycle. Be sure your water is at least 130 F. Run hot water at faucet before starting the machine.

Dishwasher runs for a long time


If your dishwasher's cycle times are too long, check these:

Water pre-heating
Cycle not completing
Water pre-heating Yourdishwasher may pre-heat the water. If so, and if the water entering thedishwasher is cool, the heater may take up to half an hour to heat thewater.

To avoid the wait, increase the incoming watertemperature before turning on the dishwasher. Do that by running thekitchen sink faucet until the water runs hot. Or increase thetemperature of the hot water to the entire house at the hot waterheater.

Warning! To lessen the risk of scalding, don't set the hot water heater temperature higher than 120 degrees Fahrenheit.

Won't get off drain/cancel cycle


It sounds to me like you may have a float switch that is registering water in the unit when you try to start it. If the unit "registers"that there is water in the sump before starting a new cycle, it will try to drain it before starting. The switch is located under the lower acess panel. Sometimes, you can bounce the float (depending on model) inside the unit a couple times and dislodge it. If not, you will have to pull the lower acess panel and check the switch out.

Wash cycle


momrules, it could vary depending on the water entering the dishwasher. On a heavy cycle normal time is about 85 minutes not including thermal holds ( pauses that heat the water). On a normal wash, 68 to 75 minutes not including thermal holds. If the water entering the dishwasher is not at least 120 to 140 degrees the dishwasher will pause in cycles to heat the water before advancing. So 120 minutes is not unrealistic. The heaters in the dishwasher are low wattage and will only heat the water approx. 2 degrees every 5 minutes. Catriver.
