SOURCE: portable dishwasher

The first thing you might want to do is check the water pressure in the house. Ideal water pressure should be from 55psi to 75psi max. I have seen homes that had pressure around 125 psi which will cause pressure leaks in water heaters, softners, washer valves, r/o systems. Check to see that all, if any inlet screens are clear and free from any grit and sand. It's possible that your inlet water valve (wd10m0010) has become restricted. Other than that, the complete uncoupler hose assy. part number is wd24m0030. These parts are for the dishwasher model ending in gsc3400j00bb. They are the same for model number ending in 00ww. Good luck.

SOURCE: GE Nautilus GSD4200 Dishwasher will not wash/drain

The average life of a dishwasher is 7-10 years. The symptoms strongly indicate a motor pump problem and my personal opinion is if that is the case youd be better to put the money toward a new dishwasher.

SOURCE: dishwasher fills with water when running faucet

The drain hose from the dishwasher should exit the dishwasher, then head up to the nderside of the counter top, before heading back down to connect to the disposal drain connection.

If the drain hose doesn't do this, the dishwasher is improperly installed, and clean dishes risk being contaminated, which can cause people to become ill.

My Bosch dishwasher is taking hours (at least 3 - maybe more) to complete a cycle. There is gummy, yucky stuff building up inside - sorta pinkish brownish. Could the water not be hot enough? A couple of...

if your on demand heater is one of the small ones that mounts under the sink, it will not flow enough water to fill your dishwasher. the dishwasher is waiting for the water level to fill before it starts washing. your bosch will heat its own water. hook it up to a cold line ahead of the water heater so that the fill valve is fed with full pressure. the residue sounds like detergent build up. when you get the water issue resolved, run a few cycles with no dishes and no detergent, on the highest temp setting. add a cup or two of white vinegar or dishwasher cleaner ( order online or get from an appliance repair store) through it. Dont forget your dishwasher has a filter in the bottom under the spray arm that needs to be cleaned periodically. if you dont clean it once a month it will get all kinds of nasty stuff built up in there.

I have a water-softener dispenser in my Danby 1899 W Portable diswasher. I do not know how to fill the dispenser and I cannot run the dishwasher until this is resolved. The user manual provides no...

I couldn't find it either for a long time:

1) Pull out the bottom rack as if you were putting dishes there
2) Look at the bottom of the dishwasher and there will be a white circle (near the upper left side) where you can add the water softener.

I didn't use any for a while and the dishwasher worked great so I'm not sure why you can't run it.

Mold growing on dishes

Recommend that you run another cycle with no DW soap aded, waiting until the dishwasher has filled with hot water and begins to do the first wash cycle. Then add 1/2 cup of bleach to the water and close the door. Allow the cycle to finish. Run it normally with a standard load of dirty dishes. Note: These high efficiency dishwashers count on the "dirt" of the dirty dishes to help wash/clean the dishes. Recommend you not rinse/wash the dishes before you put them in the dishwasher.

Watch for any occurrence of the black dots and repeat the bleach treatment.

Lg dishwasher never heats water

The LG 7811 dishwasher is supposed to even support a cold water (vs. hot water) connection. Then it will heat the water up to 120 degrees upon each fill cycle. This is not optimal and it adds much time to the already long full cycle. When you run the hot water at the kitchen sink until it is hot and then kick off the cycle, is the water hot at the beginning? It should be 120 degrees minimum and well under 140 degrees maximum.
Do you get any error codes on the display? Troubleshooting is possible, but recommend you contact LG service at the number in the user guide asap. Press for fast, free resolution to this problem. Please reply when you have gotten this fixed, explaining what fixed this nice, quiet dishwasher. Good Luck!
PS: When you get it running, do not use ultra-cheap dishwasher soap. Recommend Electrosol powder or cascade. Never use gel or tablets on this water conserving dishwasher.

LG Dishwasher

Had a similiar problem I tried reducing water pressure from water inlet (external to dishwasher) and this worked to a certain degree, although may result in being unable to fill, if you turn down too far. Water silencer (try plumbing stores) was fitted between mains and dishwasher and this fixed the problem.<!-- from fixya rte -->
