Question about LG 24 in. LDF 7811 Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher
I have a LDF7811 approx 4yrs old. The bottom sprayer does not work, in fact it will not move even though the upper two sprayers do spin and spray. I have tested this in several settings - half load bottom, rinse cycles full cycles and let them run such that there is ample time for the sprayers to alternate though it never happens. I removed the filter housing and internal molding to expose the diverter valve, my hunch is that it must be that the valve is defective, or the control for it is no longer working. If a sensor is used as part of the feedback loop it certainly could be that. I didn't notice any debris or abnormal build up under the filter. Any advice is appreciated. If the diverter is defective what are my options for getting a replacement part and is there a service manual available that outlines common disassembly and assembly repairs? Thanks SJ
The vario motor that attaches to the check valve can be accessed by pulling the unit and turning the entire DW over on its top.
This thing is not light and please be careful.
Remove the entire (black) base support assembly so you can see all the motors, etc.
Here is an example source for the vario motor
Please report back what you end up doing, OK?
