Question about Dishwashers
Detergents don't dissolve as well anymore because they no longer contain phosphate. It was outlawed recently. if you live in an area with hard water, it is especially noticable. This website explains it and sells an all-natrual product that contains no phosphate.

There is a rather delicate mechanism which controls that soap door. Often this is the first part of a dishwasher to cause trouble. Instead of using the powdered detergent in the soap holder just pour the measured amount into the floor of the machine.
Once you have used up the powder, you might wish to consider a tablet which also just gets tossed.

SOURCE: Detergent left in dispenser cup
You either do not have enough water getting itno the machine or it is not hot enough. 5 years old so I would suspect a plugged screen on the fill valve.

Try to make sure that the path for water isn't blocked to the dispenser. Ours will do that too if we forget to leave some space for the streaming water to hit the little tray.

With the LG LDF6810 model, this is not a common problem.
Please try the following test, With and empty dishwasher, add a small to normal amount of dry dishwasher powder and run an (empty) load.
Check to see if any soap remains in the dispenser cup.
If any remains, here are three things to do: 1.) Upgrade your dishwasher detergent to a name brand powder (e.g.: Electrosol or Cascade)
2.) When you load the dishwasher, do not place large items in the front, near the door/soap dispenser.
3.) Before you load the dirty dishes for the next several loads, with your hand, turn both the upper and lower wash arms so they point at the door. Load as you normally do and push the racks fully in. Before you close the door, spin both the upper and lower arms and confirm that they spin freely and neither hits anything. if either does not spin freely, pull out the rack and arrange so the arms can spin freely.
I find that the only time I have left over detergent powder is when the wash arms do not spin freely.
This is a common problem on most every energy star/water conserving dishwashers.
Please report back what you find, OK?
