Question about LG Dishwashers

1 Answer

Does a LG model LDF 6920st have anything way to heat to hot water

Customer lives in large house and their hot water heater is quite a distance from dishwasher. She and my little lady thinks it has something in it to assist in heating the water coming in. I being a retired IBM customer engineer and repairing everything from tvs to my cars and motercycles say I don't think so. Only the heating element for drying the dishes after they are washed. Am I right?

Dishwashers do have a water heater element. In fact, it's the same heater that is used for hot dry, but you can switch it off for the drying cycle if you want. Dishwashers heat the water so it will be hot enough to properly clean the dishes. Sorry, you lose the bet.

If you do not keep close watch on your water chemistry, depending on your location , you could have a large calcium build-up or salt build up on your electric heating element. Also, these models are meant for spas, and depending on the weather in your location, the heater might have trouble keeping up.

I have a customer who would like a Bosch AE-9.5 tankless water heater installed in the master bathroom. The master bath is located at the far end of the house & they are wasting a great deal of water...


In theory it sounds good, but I don't think it would function properly. Most folks install a low boy 20 or 25 gallon water heater near the master bath and use the home's cold water feed as the supply line. That way, the water for the master bath alone, will always remain hot.Of course this would involve some plumbing modifications.

Of course, the other less expensive solution, would be to insulate the hot water pipe(s) feeding the master bath, from the existing water heater. That way, there would be no heat loss in the pipe(s) so the water in the pipe would remain warm to hot all the time.

Either of the above solutions should heat things up for your customer.

Water doesn't flow from the hot side. Was really cold last night. Is there a way to get it to flow?


Hi,
Yes... the water pipe is probably frozen... take a hair dryer and focus the heat on the piping...moving it back and forth along the piping to thaw it out...

A humming sound is coming from my gas water heater.


It is probable a lime build up in the bottom of the water heater tank. You can remove the bottom heating element and clean the lime out, keep in mind this sometimes turns into quite a job though. And you may damage the heating element during removal and have to purchase a new element.

Water heater no go.


The heating element is turned on first during the main wash cycle, which could be approximately 10 minutes in. Since this error is coming up, the first thing to check/replace is the heating element.

I am only familiar with the LDF family of LG dishwashers and on them, to get to the heating element, you pull the dishwasher, invert the entire DW and remove the access panel.

Good Luck, please post back here what you find, OK?
