Question about LG Dishwashers
I have an LG LDS5811WW dishwasher that is not getting hot enough to wash clothes or melt the wax cap on a bottle of dishwasher cleaner solution. I have checked the continuity of the heating element and it is good. When I enter test mode and check the thermistor, the temperature displayed is 40 degrees Celsius or 104 degrees Fahrenheit. Much too low. That is lower than our water heater temp so it must be cooling off after it runs awhile. The heating element is obviously not providing any heat. What next?

You should always turn the hot water faucet at the kitchen sink first before starting dishwasher. If you don't your entire wash is cold water. This will also cause the water temp mode to take forever to heat the water to the 140 that is factory set. Hope this helps.

There are many probable causes of failure .
A dishwasher's water inlet valve is its most common part to fail. When your dishes are not being fully cleaned, quite often a faulty water inlet valve is to blame. Test your dishwasher's water inlet valve, and if it is no longer functioning as it should, you will have to replace it.
Water temperature is a key element in achieving clean dishes. A dishwasher's heating element is not designed to heat the water that enters it. Rather, the heating element is designed to maintain the heat of the water that enters the dishwasher. Its a good idea to run the hot water in your sink for a couple of minutes before you run the dishwasher. Just to make sure the water is nice and hot before it enters the dishwasher. If the water is unable to stay hot, it can adversely affect your dishwasher's cleaning ability.
There is a filter in your dishwasher. Its function is to keep large particles of food and foreign objects away from the pump. Many of the newly-manufactured dishwashers have self-cleaning filters, and routine cleaning isn't a concern. However, some other dishwashers need to have the filter removed and cleaned regularly. If the filter or grate is clogged or blocked with debris, it may interfere with the normal functioning of your dishwasher
A helpful rating and a testimonial would be greatly appreciated if you are satisfied with my solution..
