Question about LG LDF6810ST Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Door won't latchet

I went to run the dishwasher and realized that when I closed the door. It didn't latchet. I made sure the shelves were completely in and tried shutting again and it still wouldn't latchet. I checked that the door was closing and upper latchet was aligned but still didn't latchet. I took the door apart and it seems like the latchet in the door won't move up and down. Any suggestions on what is wrong. The unit is a year old and it worked just fine the day before.

Start my using a bubble level to make sure the unit is squarely mounted. Even small amounts of offset or tilt in the unit can eventually cause the latching mechanism to fail to work properly.

Where is the drain hole for this model


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that you are looking for the drain hole on your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FFHT1725PS, due to water building up on the shelves inside your refrigerator. There technically is no drain in your refrigerator. There is a drip pan, which collects water from the condenser underneath your appliance. There are some possibilities that are causing the water to build up on the shelves. First, make sure that all containers are covered. Condensation can evaporate from opened containers and create water on the walls and shelves. Secondly, make sure that the drawers that have your fruits and vegetables are completely closed and set to the correct setting. Fruits and vegetables are full of water. Thirdly, check to make sure that your doors are closing and sealing correctly. Moisture can come through an open door or a door that is not sealed correctly. Lastly, if it is hot and humid, make sure that you are not going in your refrigerator many times and holding the door open as well. Hope this is helpful.

-Best regards-

Door latch not working on Frigidaire 18 in.


Hi -

The issue may lie with the door latch; a door switch is used to start and stop your dishwasher. It's a safety feature that won't allow water to flow with the door open. With a faulty door switch, there is a chance your dishwasher won't start at all. Dishwasher door switches are about an inch long. They are usually black but can be red. There are metal prongs on the body of the switch called terminals. Some door switches have two terminals and some have three. If your door switch is OK, check the timer assembly. This controls when and how long power is sent to other controls on your dishwasher. If these controls don't receive power, they won't work. The timer assembly contains a motor. Check this motor as well. It is often cheaper just to replace the timer motor rather than the complete assembly. My last suggestion is to check the cycle selector switches. These switches indicate cycles for washing, drying, and setting the temperature of the water. If one of your switches is the problem your dishwasher may not start. Dishwasher cycle selector switches tell the timer which cycle to run by opening and closing electrical circuits. Most selector switches are six to eight inches long. They are usually black and have terminals. By testing each one of these parts with an ohmmeter you should be able to determine why your dishwasher is not working. It is possible for other parts to fail but these are the most common parts to check. If any proves to be ineffective, I strongly suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately.

Bosch dishwasher shx46a06uc-30


the unit will try to complete the last command it was engage in before it went in the overfill safety mode. you must perform a cancel drain cycle to reset unit to default setting. Remember the drain cycle is 2 min and must be completed to reset main control. however if it went into a overfill status you have a leak and it generally comes from the pressure chamber on the lefthand side of unit where the water enters tub

Doesn't close tight enough to start


It sounds like your door-closed sensor (a microswitch) is out-of-adjustment. If you can locate this sensor, try gluing a tiny piece of plastic or wood to it. This will do the same thing as pushing really ******* the door and allow your dishwasher to operate normally.
