1 yr old lg dishwasher model# ldf6810st LEAK/CONDENSATION

When the drying cycle starts get moisture on tile floor just below the vent outlet; lg tech says from condensation of hot air blowing out onto the cold tile floor; has never done this before. the lg tech guy just replaced the vent[ mjz36939301] and the casing assembly [ 5835ed2002d] yesterday for another leakage problem,which is now solved. When I called him back regarding the new problem he gave me the ''condensation'' answer I mentioned above but had no other ideas. Can you help? thanks alot [ The actual dishwasher is the one noted above,was unable to find this product on your listing below]

TOO ALL SAMSUNG LDF AND POSSIBLE OTHER LG DISWASHER USERS:
LG NEGLECTED MY CALLS TO SOLVE THIS PROBLEM. THE DRIPPING PROBLEM FROM THE CORNERS OCCURS:
1- VENT ASSEMBLY FOR HOT AIR BLOWER SEAL LEAKS: EASY TO FIX JUST USE A GOOD QUALITY CAULK AROUND THE SEAM. YOU WILL HAVE TO DISMANTLE THE BLOWER ASSEMBLY WHIXH IS FAIRLY EASY.
2- THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT: LG HAS A DESIGN FAULT. WHEN THE DISHWASHER FILLS WATER AND STARTS PUMPING TO SPRAYS THE AIR INSIDE THE DW HAS NO WHERE TO GO THEREFORE THE WATER WAS PUSHED UNDER THE BOTTOM OF THE DOOR GASKETS (THE ONE ATTACHED TO THE DOOR BOTTOM, NOT THE ONE AROUND THE MAIN CABIN). SO AIR WITH WATER PUFFS OUT OF THE PAN HITS THE DOOR AND LEAKS DOWN. THE SOLUTION IS TO LET THE AIR OUT SOMEHOW. YOU MUST TRY TO PUSH-IN THE DOOR GASKET WHICH IS SEALING LEFT/RIGHT/TOP PART OF THE CABIN AND THE DOOR. IF YOU PUSH TOO MUCH THE WATER MAY LEAK FROM THE SEALS SO BE CAREFUL NOT TOO PUSH TOO MUCH. BASICALLY TRIAL AND ERROR. YOU CAN DO THAT AFTER YOU REMOVE THE DOOR COVER. THE LEAKAGE OCCURS IN THE BEGINNING OF THE CYE SO IT IS FAIRLY EASY TO TRY. IF THAT IS NOT A SUCCESS THEY DROP OF CAULK ON THE ONE OF THE DOOR EDGE TO PUSH THE GASKET SO THAT THE DOOR PUSHES IN THE GASKET TO ALLOW AIR OUT RIGHT AROUND THE CAULK. NORMALLY DISHWASHERS HAVE AN ELECTRICALLY ACTUATED OUTLET TO LET THE AIR OUT. THEY JUST WANTED TO SAVE COST AND HAVE US DEAL WITH THIS RIDICULOUS PROBLEM.

The retrofit for the LG LDF6810ST should include the following items:
K200 CONTROL PANEL ASSEMBLY Part # AGL32599304 (original part number 5835ED2002D) -Control panel modified to avoid interference with new blower assembly.
F001 FRAME ASSEMBLY,LOWER Part # AGL33667101 -Frame was modified to avoid interference with new vent
F174 HINGE BRACKET Part # 4810DD1001A -Hinge bracket was modified to include a new vent mounting hole (Sometimes the existing bracket is drilled )
K124 VENT Part # MJZ39902101 (Original part number MJZ36939301) -Vent was changed to Improve Drying performance
K110 CASING ASSEMBLY Part # ABT35083801 -Casing ASM was changed to Improve Drying performance
K001 DOORLINER ASSEMBLY Part # 4937DD1001C -Casing ASM & Vent were changed to Improve Drying performance (Hose added)
If all the parts have been replaced according to the retrofit instructions in recent LG Service Guide, you should not have further problems. I checked and my dry cycle (third blue blinking light on front of DW) does exhaust warm air straight down, but I have fake wood floor in this rental unit, not tile. Depending on humidity and temerature, condensation-made moisture on the tile ~could~ be possible, IMHO. Please reply with what you find out. The retrofit is new to me. Also, was the kit installed at no cost to you? Both parts and labor? Good Luck!

Hi,
I have the same problem in my machine, and it seems to be a design problem from LG. They changed the blower and ducts in Dec/2007 for "improved drying performance". I found it in their most recent Service Manual. It seems there is a repair kit that can be installed on models older than Dec/2007, but I am not sure under what circumstances (warranty claims maybe). As I live overseas (there is no LG warranty for dishwashers in my country), I just keep a piece of cloth there to absorb the moist. Sorry.

I have an LG dishwasher that is stopping 4 minutes into the cycle and coming up with the code OE, have cleaned it and still having the same problem. When I start the cycle it sounds like there is water...


This sounds like the anti flood trigger that triggers the pump out pump. This device is a polystyrene float coupled to a micro switch that activates if any small amount of water is on the floor of the dishwasher (caused by leaky pipe / clamp). This will cause the machine to stop any function and only the pump out pump works, This is a safety feature of most dishwashers. Remove / dry the water and check if it continues ,...

LDF6810ST/01 no water


The pump out motor starts because it detects some water leak and is a safety switch on a polystyrene float. Find the cause of the water leak (hose or hose clamp) dry the water and this should solve your problem

LG dishwasher is dripping water from vent onto floor


Good that it is working. Recommend you keep a lose eye on the vent on the bottom of the door panel. This model will probably begin leaking again if it has not been retrofit with a kit that LG developed.
Please open a new problem when it starts to leak and please provide the Model and serial number when you do. Good Luck!

LG Dishwasher LDF6810ST


Hi,
As I had the same problem, I worked on my machine and found out the heater unit was not working (it is a brand new machine ! - remark : as I moved overseas, LG did not cover it with their warranty).
But back to what I did : I ran the check program (instructions can be found in the Service Manual) and verified it was sending voltage to the heater on step 36. So I checked the heater unit (in the bottom of the machine) and found it was burned or open. So I ordered a new heater assembly ($40 on eBay), replaced it myself and am completely happy with the results.
Remarks : the heater is powerful enough to heat cold water to the temperatures required (I don't have hot water in the faucet); it seems that the heater also produces heat for the drying cycle (my dishes were completely wet at the end of the cycle before, now they get completely dry). My only disappointment, mentioned by some in the forum, is that the outlet during the drying cycle is in the bottom of the door, so steam condensates into droplets on the kitchen floor. But now I get clean dishes, and this machine is amazingly silent and efficient. Good luck to you !

Condensation


Turns out the vent was obstructed. Re-positioned the custom-fit door and problem solved.

Door leak in LG LDF6810ST Built-in Dishwasher


Your drying vent tube is probably leaking inside the door panel.  Remove the outer front panel and on the top left side, there is long white plastic tube connected to the dryer fan assembly.  In that connection is where the problem is.  You will need to disassemble the fan from the door, disconnect the tube from the fan, clean out the water and debris and use silicone when reassembling the tube to the fan.
