That's a normal path for the soap. It sounds like the water just sits in the bottom without being pumped through the spray arms. Does the pump motor run? Pop the door open in the middle of the washing cycle--you should see hot water dripping from everything and the soap picked up and circulated with the water. If this machine has seen a lot of use, the intake screen under the lower spray arm may be plugged and is accessed by removing the spray arm and working your way down to the bottom of the deck. Might be a problem for a service technician to take care of.

Soap dispenser opens, but detergent doesn't disolve and runs down front of door. Have tried several different detergents with no result.


You may have a hot water problem. The water when hot will disolve
the soap or detergent. The dishwasher hasits own heater to heat
the water entering the dishwasher. Check the electrical connections
below the dishwasher to make sure your heater is working. It may be just
a loose connection.
If this is not the case, then a service repait man will need to be called,
to determine why it is not heating the water.

NewDishwasher LG LDS 4821 WW Normal cycle


The new energy efficient LG dishwashers take 2 hours from start to finish depending on water temp. Run your hot water at the sink prior to starting the unit.

I see all the time inproper loading of the dishwasher blocking the sray arms.

Put 1 teaspoon of detergent in the soap dish.
Run the unit without anything in it.
If the soap washes out the unit is ok.

Also here some improtant info. that often gets overlooked when a new dishwasher is installed.

Replace the water supply valve under the sink and water supply line to dishwasher.
Over time minerals deposit in the valve and restrict the water flow to the dishwasher.
This is especially inportant on todays water saving units.
Many people replace an old dishwasher and hate the new unit due to a white film left on dishes.

Although you may have paid for a professional installation a new shut off valve is almost never replaced even though the waterline may have been at an additional cost to you..

Soap dispenser door not opening up


there could be many solutions from not enough water in the dishwasher
to the piece on black backing in between the door and inner linning has warmed up and slide down restricting the soap door from opening
the lack of water could be from a defective water fill valve or a restriction in the drain line holdingf the drain valve open alowing water to escape
when the machine fills open the door see how much water is in it close the door wait 2 min open the door again if water went down the problem is arestrictioninthe drain valve (water should fill to touch the element in the bottom i hope this helps

Hello there
Here is several ideas that will help you
also (fyi) type in search engine how things work and once it opens just enter dishwasher and it will bring you to the dishwasher section ok?
here it is
Dishwasher is leaking water
  • Inspect the seals for the main tub, float, heating element and blower diffuser
  • Check for overfilling
  • Inspect the water and drain hoses
  • Inspect the door gaskets
  • Check the water inlet valve
  • Check the pump
Water or soap leaks around the door
  • Make certain that your detergent is intended for dishwashers. Do not use liquid dish soap.
  • Inspect the door seal gasket
  • Check the door latch
  • Inspect the door hinges
  • Inspect the spray arms for damage
Water drains through the air gap into the sink

SPRAY ARM ASSEMBLEY NOT TURNING ON MY BOSCH DISHWASHER, ALSO WATER JUST DRIPPING THROUGH SPRAY ARM


If your dishwasher leaks, check these:

Main tub seal
Door gasket or seal
Water-inlet valve
Hoses
Main tub seal Note… If the main motor of your dishwasher is mounted vertically, beneath the center bottom of the dishwasher, the following instructions probably apply to you. But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn't serviceable--you need to replace the entire pump and motor assembly.

The main tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water in the dishwasher from leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get to the seal, which is inside the dishwasher, remove the:

  • Lower rack


  • Spray arm


  • Spray arm support


  • Wash/drain impellers


Then pry the seal out of its housing and replace it.

Door gasket or seal Over time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly. You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak. 

Water-inlet valve The water-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply line from the house and the rubber tube leading from the valve to the inside of the dishwasher may leak. Tighten or repair/replace these as necessary.

The water-inlet valve could mechanically stick open. When that happens, the water continues to flow into the dishwasher, which then floods your kitchen. Turn off the water supply to the dishwasher, and replace the valve.

Hoses Behind the lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastic hoses. If the leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If that doesn't work, replace the hose.

587 Doesn't work well


AS ABOVE SUGESTION ...PROBUBLY NOT GETTING ENOUGH WATER. NOT LIKELY THE FAULT OF THE DISHWASHER PROBUBLY SEDIMENT FROM THE WATER PLUGED THE INLET SCREEN OF THE FILL VALVE. MANY TIMES THE MOVING OF A FLEXIBLE PLUMBING LINE BRAKES LOOSE ANY SEDIMENT AND DEPOSIT DURING THE INSTALATION OF A NEW DISHWASHER WHICH IS WHY MOST ADVISE REPACING THIS SMALL FLEXIBLE LINE WHEN INSTALLING A NEW DISHWASHER. YOU WILL HAVE TO DIS ASSEMBLE VALVE TO CLEAN SCREEN ...IF YOU BOUGHT THE PROTECTION AGREEMENT OR HAD SEARS INSTALL IT THEY SHOULD COVER A SERVICE CALL TO CLEAN THE VALVE.

Soap does not desolve


check that the spray arms are turning and that the holes in them are not clogged, if you line them up pointing towards the front let the machine fill then as it starts to wash open the door and you should see the arms slowing down, if they are okay then check the water level which should just lap the filter at the bottom

Dihes not clean


Run the unit with no soap, after about 5 min. of run time open door and check to see if water is clear or soapy,If soapy then you are having an oversudsng issue.When your washer gets to rinse cycle, your unit (if oversuding),will be rinsing with soapy water and the the drying cycle bakes the soap on dishes.You might be having a white film on your clear glasses.Cut down on soap especially if you have soft water.powder soap is best.Your dishwasher will fill , wash , the drain.Its what you put into it that will cause dishes not become clean.
