Question about LG 24 in. LDF 7811 Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher
Food continues to be left on everything
The LG LDF7811 Dishwasher is a water and energy conserving unit. So, anything the obstructs the wash pump reduces its ability. here are some steps to follow:
1.) Buy a box of brand name dishwasher detergent powder (e.g. Electrosol or Cascade) Use it and avoid generic powders and never use gels or tablets in any dishwasher.)
2.) Remove the lower basket and then the lower spray arm (pull it up and out firmly)
3) Remove the approximate 9 phillips screws from the filter assembly beneath where the spray arm was. (Take a digital picture of each stage, so you can reassemble later.)
4.) Rinse/wash everything, especially the filter "orb" with the mesh panels, as best you can.
5.) With a flashlight, inspect the sump area that you just exposed. Watch out for broken glass! Remove all debris and look one more time for any little chunks that may be blocking stuff down there.
6.) Inspect the impeller, looking for damage, being plugged. Make sure it spins freely, but is also securely fastened to the top with the screw.
Reassemble the dishwasher and test.
Please report back with what you find. OK?
Thanks and Good Luck!

The filter is probably blocked.
It is inside the base of the machine.
Take out the filter and clean it and also clean out the filter well as that can also hold quite a bit of debris.
