I have a brand new LG dishwasher-LDF6920ST. I find that the detergent is not dissolving. I either find it in a hardened block after the cycle or I find the detergent just spilled in the bottom.

Either:

  1. the water does not get into the dishwasher open the dishwasher 3-4 times during cycle, you should see some water at least once, if not - check water valve, water level float and water pressure.
  2. the pump is clogged - there is water, the motor will run but no water is circulated. Check pump filters, check chopper and impeller.
  3. motor in main pump is not working - could be caused by something stuck on the impeller or chopper or could be a problem with the motor itself or control board. Check if line voltage is coming to the motor during wash/rinse cycle.
Good luck,

What brand of detergent should i use


I have had good luck with the powdered dishwasher detergent from Wall Mart's brand Great Value.

Before I switched to this brand I had to clean the washer drawer several times because the detergent I was using was not dissolving properly and would leave a residue in the bottom of the drawer and on the dishes.

My dishes come out with a gritty sand all over them.


If you live in an area with hard water, the grit is probably hard water deposits. Dishwasher detergents no longer contain phosphate, so the detergents often leave behind hard water deposits on your dishes. There is a great solution at www.cloudydishes.com

Have a brand new LG dishwasher, food residue still left on dishes after cycle. I am not talking about unusually dirty dishes here, just normal tiny bits of food. This is why we bought a new one, old one...


Hi,

The scum, film and white residue problems have started since the reduction of phosphates in dishwasher detergents.

Here is a tip that will help you to solve the problem of films, residue, and scum in your dishwasher.

D/w doesn't dissolve deterg. & therefore not washing dishes


Do this test:
-Upgrade to a name brand detergent like Cascade or Electrosol.
-Do not over fill the dispenser cup
-Do not place large items near the door/near the dispenser cup.
-Make certain that both spray arms can spin freely after you load the dishwasher but before you close the door to begin the wash.
Please report back what you find, OK?

The dishwasher dispenser tab did not dissolve.


That could have definitely lowered the water pressure enough to slow down the filling of the dishwasher... maybe it was just a fluke. If it keeps happening, you might have to dig deeper to find the gunk...

A Google search for the part number turned up this... the diagram on page 8 shows the parts you will need to inspect... parts 66, 64, and down in the bottom of 14 is where the gunk will collect.

Automatic dishwashing detergent granules do not dissolve


Did you switch brands of detergent?
You mentioned that the diswasher is old can you check the nozels of the wands to see any of them are plugged near the ends this will affect wheather the water is reaching the door.
Hope this helps

Dishwasher detergent won't dissolve


Recommend you stop using the gel and switch to a brand name powder - like Electrosol or Cascade. Never use gel, gel packs or tablets in any dishwasher. Avoid untra-cheap, generic powders.
If problems continue, a service call, with them checking that the heating element is working is the follow up step.
Good Luck!

LG LDF6920ST Bottom spray arm dose not work


The LG LDF6920 dishwasher has an innovative "Vario" motor/check valve. It switches between full power spray on the upper arms and the lower arm. So, if you are looking inside the dishwasher to see which arm is spinning, you just have not opened it when the lower arm is turning.
if the root problem is that your dishes are not getting clean with this water conserving DW, go out and buy a name brand detergent powder - like Electrosol or Cascade. And use less powder then you have been using.
Good Luck!

RESIDUE ON DISHES-NOT CLEANING WELL-DETERGENT NOT DISSOLVING-LONG CYCLES


Sounds like you have motor pump problem and may need to be replaced.  The parts are covered for 2 years but you'll have to pay for the labor.  Call a qualified LG technician for service on your dishwasher.  You can find them on the LG website.
