Question about LG 24 in. LD-12BW5 Free-standing Dishwasher
It started to do that intermittently, but now it can also overfill during the first rinse and the excess water gushes out and floods the floor. Could it be electronic problem? We've used DW cleaner several times, that seemed to help at first.....

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.

I have this same dishwasher,and have had the same problems that have been described in this forum..
LG model#LDS5811.I bought it from Home Depot as a scratch and dent with no warranty available for about $400.00.
The problems I have seen on my own and have read online have been Intermittent leaks on the left side door,as well as both sides.And in some cases,even wiring and motor problems.
In my case,the water was coming from a leaking O-ring behind the evaporator housing in the door,as well as a small hole in the drain hose in the part of the hose on the left side where the hose loops up the side of the machine behind the panel before it comes out of the back.
You will need to take the left side panel off to undo the wire holding the hose in place as well as remove the bottom plate over the motor to gain access to remove the hose from the pump to get the hose off of the machine.Simply replace the hose.You can order online or buy a replacement at an Appliance Repair store as I did.
To repair the door leak,you will need to remove the lower outside panel that is under the control panel.Inside the door,you will need to turn the vent cover at the top of the door counter clock-wise one-forth turn and remove the entire evaporator unit as a whole.You will see a 1.5 inch O-ring.
I repaired this by getting G.E 100% silicone that you can purchase at a Home Repair store like Lowes or Home Depot and sealing around both sides as well as putting a good bead on top of the O-ring itself,and wipe off the excess after re-installing.
I performed these repairs over a month ago,and have had very good success.No leaks to be seen.I am a A\C,Refrigeration Tech by trade,and have done alot of Appliance repair/installation as a side trade from being a maintenance technician at some very large Grocery chains the last 20+ years.
I completely dissassembled this machine and have found it to be a decent product,but some shoddy materials and questionable assembly practices have created these problems,but good sound engineering.
I hope this helps someone with the problems with this machine so it wont be a total loss.

Clean the surface with soap solution. If the door gasket becomes hard this will happen. Replace the gasket with the same make.
