SOURCE: NO Water

Check the float under the lower rack. It should move up and down freely and you should hear a click when moving it. This operates a switch that turns the power to the water valve off if it gets to full. If it sticks in raised position or has gotten out of place where it rests on switch under the dishwasher, the valve will not let water in.

SOURCE: LG Dishwasher - drain hose replacement

Hello, I have just installed a similar model, and took the side panel off to see how it was put together ;)

The drain hose goes in the back of the dishwasher, then loops up the right side (as you are looking at the front)(this is to act as a "trap" to keep sewer gases from coming back into your washer, I assume), and then connects to the drain pump under the washer.

In order the change the hose, you will need to remove the left side panel, and the bottom panel, and this will give you access to the entire hose....

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: IE input error on LG dishwasher Model LDF6810ST

Chris;
The float you speak of is located behind the left side panel. (be careful if you remove the panel, the back edge is real sharp,.... I left a pint of blood at one house !) Water enters the dishwasher fill assembly and turns a paddle wheel, which allows the control to count the revolutions, determining the amount of water filling into the dishwasher. The float is inside a chamber in front of (and attached to) that water guide and it has two micro switches at the top of the float chamber. If I recall correctly, the float is only for overfill protection, as the paddle wheel determines water amount. You should check the screen at the water valve to make sure nothing is obstructing inlet valve water flow. Also, make sure you are not using a "flood safe" inlet hose, which are designed to shut off water if a hose breaks (but can cause water supply issues). You may have a bad control board or wiring connection. On a new unit I would suggest calling for warranty service.
Please don't rate this solution, as anything but a FixYa will lower my score.
Thanks, Carl.

I need to replace the hot water handle


A picture, model, or brand of the type of faucet you have will be helpful as there are only three types of faucets. One hole, two hole, and three hole faucets. The one hole ones have two types: a single hot or cold, or a mixer valve to combine hot and cold into a single faucet. Each have a surface mount or wall mount version.

They all follow the same similar installation method. Turn off water supply. Unscrew supply lines from supply to underside of the faucet. a Plumber's wrench is needed or a spanning crescent wrench to remove the supply lines.

-Unscrew whole assemble from the sink.
-insert new one into the same hole as old one.
-from underneath, install the new faucet using the supplied hardware.
-Use plumbers tape (Teflon tape). It's often a white or pink silicon tape around the threads prior to screwing the supply lines back in. Re-connect the supply line.

-Open hot water faucet to maximum. Slowly turn on the water supply. Watch for leaks and drips. If any close the water supply and undo the supply leads and apply more Teflon tape.

- to apply tape. Start at the end and pull tightly, wind the tape into the threads in the direction of the turn. Do not wind in opposite direction.

-Try to turn on water again, turn slowly until it is at maximum, watch for leaks and drips.

-now slowly close the faucet and continue watching for leaks and drops.

If the faucet is fully closed and there is no leaks, you've done a good job... basic plumbing 101.

Now if your pipes are solder types and not screwed in supply line, and you're not confident with a torch or have little experience, ask for help from a friend who has some torch knowledge or hire a plumber. It is simple to do but requires a lot more steps than simply screwing in and unscrewing supply lines.

Leak (drips) from the plastic knob/valve at the bottom from of the water heater. Model: Ruud M50-2 (installed in 1996)


This is your water tank drain or boiler ****. If it's plastic, it cannot be repaired so replacement is necessary. Of course you will need to drain the tank* first before replacing the valve.

* First turn off the circuit breaker for the water heater. Turn off the cold water supply to the tank. Open all of the hot water valves at each faucet in the house for proper drainage. Connect a garden hose to the tank drain with the other end emptying into into your basement drain or to outside of the house. Open the tank drain valve slowly and allow it to drain completely.

Once it has drained, use a pair of channel-lock pliers (aka water pump pliers or arc joint pliers) to turn the base of the valve counter-clockwise and remove it. Take this valve to a plumbing, hardware of home improvement store and ask for a replacement. I recommend a brass replacement valve but a PVC one is acceptable. Pick up a roll of 1/2" teflon pipe tape too.

Wrap the pipe thread on the new valve with 2 or 3 wraps of the teflon tape. Start the valve into the drain hole by hand, then tighten with the pliers until snug and valve oulet pointing down. Make sure the valve is closed. Turn on the cold water supply valves then turn off the faucets in the house once they are purged of air. Allow the tank to pressurize and check for leaks. If good, turn on the circuit breaker and you are good to go.

Installation


Hi


Please follow LG instrcutions for installation of your dishwasher, check the Installation manual--

· You should have at least four feet of wire free at the end of the line where the dishwasher will be installed.
· Prepare the water connections. Use a proper compression fitting water supply hose.
· Remove any protective shipping packaging or screws.
· Cover any exposed wires with electrical tape.
· Check the water supply and drain hose for any leaks.

Main water line to house. Changing shut off valve. New shut off valve has compression fittings. Will teflon tape interfere w/brass compression ring inside the fitting? thanks Brian


Brian,

I would try to tighten it up without putting tape on it. The ring will compress into pipe when you tighten it to form a seal.
If then it try's to leak you may apply tape or a paste type sealant to stop drip.

Connect water line and drain line


The supply line connects to the brass screw in fitting on the bottom left corner under the washer.

When you buy a dishwasher supply line kit, it will come with any adaptors needed. Unless you are using the steel braided line you will need to use teflon tape on the threads of the line. If you are using the SS line kit, you will only need tape on the adaptor.

Here is a pick of the line and the adaptor.

The drain line is attached with a typical hose clamp like this.

It is attached to the stub out on the garbage disposal if a GD is installed. If not then it is attached to the stub out on the drain pipe for the sink, like this.

Dripping shower head


If it is dripping from the connection where it goes to the water spout you can unscrew the connection and wrap teflon tape or Pipe Joint Compound on the Threads. Now you can Thread the Shower Head Back on, with No Leak. IF..... It is leaking from the Shower Head Itself There May Be a Problem with the diverter handle/lever. If it has a Pull Type Lever, sometimes you can screw the Lever up or down for the proper water restriction to the Shower Head. However if the Hot and Cold Handle/Lever is OFF, There should not be any Water coming out from anywhere! If water is coming out off the Tub Spout, with the Shower Off, then you will have to replace some washers or Cartridges in the faucet(s) to stop the dripping. You can do this easily....Just Ask) Remember though, that some shower Heads may Drip for a Few Minutes After they are Turned off. There is still water in the Supply neck and needs to escape, either though the tub Spout or Shower Head.......Hope this Solution Helps you with your Drips.....Joe
