Question about LG LDF6810ST Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher
Remove the phillips head screws surounding the inside of the door and seperate the door. Your model used a black mastic sound / heat insulation, which has most likely gotten soft and allowed the wires to become imbedded in it. The outer insulation on the wires can then start to disolve and short out, resulting in your burning smell, or in the very least error codes showing up on the display. LG would tell you to replace the inner door liner and the wiring harness, which is fine if you have a service contract on it (because the parts are not cheap, and the labor to change them is a pain), but it you don't have a service contract, you can replace the bad wires by splicing them to bypass the bad area(s). Then, use a felt type insulation between the new wires and the old mastic to prevent the same thing from happening again. Newer model dishwashers no longer use the mastic insulation, opting for a felt insulating blaket instead. Note: Other brands of dishwashers have had similar issues.
