Question about Dishwashers
Hubby accidentally put in dish soap last night. Some bubbles escaped the bottom door seal. We caught the mistake this am, he rinsed out the inside completely and we have run the rinse cycle several time. We verified that there are no leaks anywhere. We have followed all of the instructions on this page and even had it powered off over 10 hours today. No luck in getting rid of the code. Really don't want to call for service especially if it is just the error code that needs to be reset. I would appreciate any help you can provide! This is an LG dishwasher.

SOURCE: dishwasher sending out bubbles
There is a plastic strip that runs between the lower panel and the upper panel you can pull the strip off then take the outer panel and cardboard out you will see the rinse dispenser there. open the door and take the rinse cap off the dispenser and push all of the plastic tabs in at once and pop the dispenser out. now you can clean out the dispenser and put things back together.

You need to use something to siphon the detergent out of the dispenser. I have plastic syringes for this type of purpose. You don't use the needle attachment.
If you cannot fit the syringe into the opening, then you may try to use clear plastic tubing to syphon out the detergent.
Once the flow of detergent stops, you should then use warm water to rinse the residue. If you have the syringe, you could use it to force water into the dispenser.
This may take a little time, but it is better than trying to disassemble stuff!

Have you looked behind the bellow under the folds to make sure there's no rips or tears? The bellow could appear okay on the outside, but still could have a tear somewhere out of plain view. I had this happen to me before.
The inner seal from the bellow to the tub could also be loose now. If you said a garment got stuck and the washer continued through the cycle, this could have loosen the seal where it attaches to the wash tub. You would need to tighten the band clamp around the facing of the tub if this is the case.
A good way in determining where the leak may be coming from is to remove the lower panel under the door. Start a wash cycle and watch to see where the water is coming out.
Now...if the tub seal is loose it may require some disassembly to get to. If you're going to go the route of disassembling the washer front, and have never replaced the bellow before, it probably wouldn't hurt to replace it anyway. My rationale: It's better to disassemble the washer once, rather than possibly having to do it all over again in the near future.
You can get a replacement bellow at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and look under the "Door and Latch Parts" section for item number 1 (part #8540952). It only costs about $32.
If you need instructions on how to replace the bellow, just go to my profile and look under my "Tips and Tricks". There is a write I posted there giving step-by-step instructions. If you cannot find it, or have any further questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps answer some of your questions.

Fill the detergent cup with fabric softener for a full cycle. Don't be alarmed if bubbles seep out.
Finish off with a white vinegar wipedown of the insides if it still feels soapy.
