Lg dishwasher not drying dishes

Hi, our lg dishwasher was working fine and drying dishes normally, and we noticed slowly but surely it isn't drying them properly anymore. When you open the door normally during the drying cycle, steam would come bellowing out, and now its hot inside, but not like it used to be. Everything on the top rack is always soaking wet, and stuff on the bottom like plates and stuff will dry pretty efficiently. What would cause the dishwaher to all of sudden stop drying the dishes, but still be hot inside and you can hear the blower on during the drying sycle? I need your help, Renee

    our dishwasher is 2 years old and will not dry our dishes. Steam used to roll out of the dishwasher when in dry cycle and that will not happen any more. What is the problem? Thank you, Kathie

    Same problem - drives me crazy having to hand dry everthing that comes out of the dishwasher.

    I have the same type of drying problem. I have checked the filters--that I am able to check without an improvement.

Dishes not dry


No they don't do they. Even if you don't use "Sanitize" or "Air Dry". The water doesn't get that hot either if you haven't noticed. With the new "replacement" machine, even after it's done I can't touch the dishes for several minutes. But the LG made that little jingle indicating it was done. There must be an easter egg somewhere that tells the machine to dry. Whatever you do, go and buy Dishwasher Booster, whether your store carries "Affresh" or the Oxy Clean brand, use it every cycle with your washer. You'll thank me. Your problem probably isn't listed under troubleshooting either is it? Just hang some paper towels or a dish towel nearby and expect to dry your dishes when the machine is finished washing them.

LG model LDS5811WW/02 has never cleaned the dishes since first installation. Put clean dishes in and they will come out dirty too! Have tried all dishwasher soap types and brands and drying agents. Always...


if the soap/detergent isn't completely rinsing out of dispenser, it sounds like water isn't directed the top spray-arm. possible a defective vario motor; as it directs water to the water channel that supplies water to the middle and upper spray arms.
