Lg dishwasher ldf7932st motor starts but doesn't work

Is the water turned off? Dishwashers normally start a wash by emptying any waste water tipped into them during loading. Problem could therefore be a blockage somewhere, most likely in pump inflow under the filters in bottom of machine. Lift these out to check. Also check your sink drain isn't blocked and preventing the water from being pumped out.

How do I find the pump on model #she44c06uc/48? Dishwasher wont pump water out?


When you say pump out water, do you mean the drain pump used to empty the hopper? Usually dishwashers have two pumps, one to empty it and one to supply water to the wash arms. If it drains but doesn't spray it sounds like spray supply pump is gone. Could be just a loose connection or it a dodgy contactor or relay, or the pump itself. Someone with a very basic knowledge of electricity and a multi meter could very easily diagnose this and you may be able to order the part.

Please help me fix my electrolux dishwasher, water is building up at the bottom and its not working

Wendy, sounds like the drain pump or the actuator for it has failed. If you hear the pump motor hum, but it does not empty the water, it may be jammed with some debris. To access all of the mechanical workings, you will need to remove the lower access/kick plate cover, on the bottom of the front of the dishwasher cabinet. You may want to empty most of the water out of the tub by hand, before you attempt to work on it. Also, check the circuit breaker for the dishwasher in your home's circuit breaker panel, to make sure it has tripped. If it has, reset it to see if the dishwasher will start running again. Just make sure it's in the drain water cycle.

SMU2046UC: waste water won't empty. Wash cycle works like it should but waste water remains in the bottom of the dishwasher. Sounds like pump is humming and there don't seem to be any clogs in the system??

Most likely a blocked pump. You should be able to access the pump from the base of the unit under your filters. Remove the cover and rotate the pump impeller to free blockage then start any prog to check if pump is working,if OK reassemble, if not replace pump

After dishwasher runs, the bottom is full of water and seems to leak out into floor, I dont think its draining right!

I think you could be right !

Most dishwashers have separate circulation and pump out motors. If it is not pumping out, then this needs investigating first.

If it sounds like it's working - just doing nothing, then try removing the outlet hose, and see if it will empty into a bucket instead.
If the hose is blocked with grease - run a few cups of washing soda through the machine on empty to clean it out.

If there is no attempt at pumping out, then most likely the pump is faulty or blocked.

Dishwasher won't drain.

No sound from pump would indicate a defective pump that is not working.

The other thing to check for if the hoses are clear is the valve that empties clear of debris such as bone and is the solenoid that controls it activating which opens the valve.
