Question about LG LDF6810 Built-in Dishwasher

2 Answers

We have the same problem

After two years, our LG dishwasher stopped performing. The technician made two calls to our home and said it was not plumbed properly. We replumbed it according to his direction. Now it does not clean the dishes, and as you say they are spotty with debris and it seems the drying cycle is not working properly. The top rack seems to be worse.

We are very disappointed with this expensive product and would NEVER recommend it to anyone.

How to fix The OE error code means "Outlet Error" The drain pump is either clogged or the outlet hose is kinked.

Hello Karim;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

You have a expensive transmission drive dishwasher. Next time do not buy a transmission drive, then you may be able to access and replace parts yourself.

So, here are the parts and parts cost:

1.) Dishwasher Pump Assembly. Part cost: $170.00.
25697616-s1sviqltkhbgubmgxrmnjfot-1-0.jpg 2.) Dishwasher Sump. Cost: $37.00.
25697616-s1sviqltkhbgubmgxrmnjfot-1-2.jpg 3.) Dishwater filter. Cost: $65.00
25697616-s1sviqltkhbgubmgxrmnjfot-1-5.jpg 4.) Dishwasher Mesh Filter. Cost: $27.00.
25697616-s1sviqltkhbgubmgxrmnjfot-1-9.jpg So, lets say I am not retired from Sears Home Services and I came to your home on this service call.
Standard charges are the cost of the part marked up to twice the part cost. Labor for this job, several hours would be about $300.00+.

Do not call a service company. You are looking at a repair cost of over $700.00.

Purchase a new unit. Not transmission drive. Search; "Sears Outlet Stores". These are scratch and dent stores. You can save several hundred dollars and receive a one year warrantee. Stay away from transmission drives, LG & Samsung units.

Water wont stop running

My experience with LG Dishwashers was so unpleasant that I swore I would NEVER own another LG product. LG sent a technician named "Anthony" who removed the machine and determined that there was a pinched tube. I find it hard to believe that a pinched tube would cause a sudden issue with water all over my kitchen floor. And then Anthony went under the sink, tampered with the water inlet valve and created a very small leak! Then Anthony surmised that the leak under my sink must have dripped down on to the line leading to the dishwasher, gone through the hole at the bottom of the cabinet and out and up into the dishwasher causing the bottom of the dishwasher to be completely rusted out. He then said that if it could be fixed it would cost a fortune but he wouldn't feel safe fixing it. I don't know about you, but if I heard a technician tell me that, I would consider the machine useless. It wasn't even 4 years old. The day before, the water guy had come out to replace the filter in the RO system we had under the sink. If there had been a leak, he would have seen it. I had also called Frys where I had bought the machine. The day after Anthony came, Two Frys technicians came out and immediately started examining under the sink. But there was just one problem; Anthony didn't do enough of a job to cause the leak to keep leaking. As the Frys techs pointed out, if there was a leak that had been running for as long as it would have had to have been leaking, the floor would have been soft and wet not dry and hard as they found it. And as far as the cabinet area where the dishwasher sat on untiled floor/bare wood? Dry as a bone. I have no idea what was going on inside of that machine, but when Anthony took it out he showed me - after taking off the base plate or whatever - that the bottom of the machine was completely rusted and trashed. LG refused to post my review but if your machine is not draining or is spilling water out onto your floor, there's a good chance the machine is rusted out. Unless you bought an extended warranty, LG will do nothing to help. Frys, on the other hand, went above and way beyond and despite my not buying an extended warranty - who expects a dishwasher to die in under 4 years? - gave me a very generous credit and allowed me to use it on a new machine (Whirlpool) and they met Best Buy's sale price. I had to pay to have it installed, but that was a lot less than having to buy a new machine would have cost had Frys not stepped up. I understand this problem is endemic to LG which doesn't stand for "Life's' Good" if you are the unfortunate owne of any model like this. Just so you know - from my own experience when I called around, no general appliance repair person is authorized to touch LG machines. Only LG can send a technician and that really surprised me. LG told me they could only offer a replacement if the machine was determined to be not fixable which, apparently, was not what Anthony said. Anthony said if it could be fixed, he wouldn't feel comfortable doing it. I guess in the translation is "Anthony would not fix it but that doesn't mean some other technician wouldn't. That said the machine could be fixed for a small fortune." I can't help you except suggest you pull the machine out to check for any crimped or pinched hoses and take off the base plate to see if the machine is rusted out. The only solution I can think of is start saving for a new machine and don't buy another LG. They're not customer-experience-driven and once it's sold, the service stops.

Our washer stops (cut out) after the first wah on all programs - We purchased it less than a year ago

If your dishwasher is less than a year old, it's possible you still are covered by the manufacturers warranty. If you still contain your date of purchase, it's possible you can call for LG OEM service.

Is your unit displaying any sort of error code on it?

LG will not service the LG 6810 dishwasher

When I have problems with a manufacter customer support line, I firmly but politely contact the agent, explan my problem and request quick resoution. The moment they say they are powerless to act, I imediatly request to be "escalated" to his manager. As soon as I get connected, I reqest dial in contact info directly to the escalation group. If he/she is unhelpful, I firmly and politely request to be escalated to the next higher manager.
In this case, it may be important to work through Home Depot customer service, trying as quickly as posible to get to the group that manages the LG relationship. Home Depot appears to be the organization that supplied the product that is unlabeled. These products are sometime called "Gray market" products.
Anyway, I have a similar LG product that is less than 1 year old. It was working great but all of a sudden it started to not clean well. I found undesolved, moist powder in the dispenser.
What I figured out was that I had switched DW detergent to a generic powder and the poor cleaning problems slowly showed up.
I had these white streaks runnind down from the dispenser on the stainless steel liner, too.
As soon as I switched back to a brand name powder (Electolux or Cascade) and did a white vinegar cleaning by filling a bowl full of white vinegar and placing it on the rack and running a quick cycle without adding detergent, my quiet and cool dishwasher came back!
I learned that these new, water conserving, energy effiecent models need an effective detergent that easily desolves and has minimal 'minerals' included in the powder. I also learned that you should always use a powder, never a gel or tablet.
Try my advice for a week or two. If problems persist, the next most common clearning problem is the heating element is not coming on during the wash.
Give these things a shot and please report back here. Good Luck!

LG Dishwasher Model LDF6810ST Dishwasher won't turn on

your model probably has a coating of a black tar-like substance on the inside of the inner door, which, by design, reduces noise. However, LG failed to notice the corrosive properties of the black tar-like layer. Your wiring harness is probably corroded by the soundproofing, and you will need a new inner door, wiring harness, and circuit board. LG extended my parts warranty because they know it's their fault, Call them at 1-800-243-0000. They will recommend an LG warranty repair certified technician in your area to come out and confirm this. They probably won't extend the warranty until after the tech checks out ur unit. However, labor will be your responsibility.

You have either a water fill or water temperature problem.  Not sure because you couldn't be specific on the error problem.  You will need to call a qualified LG technician to diagnose this properly.
