Question about LG 24 in. LDS 5811 Built-in Dishwasher
I have had this dishwasher since 3-25-08. It has been repaired 1x, played with daily to get it to drain--and the service center is unresponsive. I now just want this pos gone. I have had to shut it off and then turn it back on and just hit rinse to get it to drain. Why?
If you can get a repair-man to come out at least once or twice more and the problems aren't solved, you definately need to get on LG's case and have them replace it. My LG dishwasher was repaired about seven times before LG would do anything. I bought mine from an appliance dealer and they even had to fight just to get a response from LG. When LG finally agreed to replace the dishwasher (about a year after all the troubles began) my retailer allowed me to choose another brand of washer. I'd recomend a KitchenAid or Whirlpool, they have performed well in my home in the past and currently as well. The problem with your dishwasher right now is likely the motor. It seems to be the big thing that goes on all theses dishwashers. For me the motor was the last part to fail, it was having a hard time draining, the soap was not being disolved, and the dishes were always coming out dirty. My repairman told me that the LG products have been **** and he wouldn't recomend them. He told me this as long as I made sure his boss didn't find out. Good-luck with your fight against LG Customer Service, I hope you manage to resolve this faster than I did.

First make sure that nothing is blocking the drain pump
assembly located inside the lower front panel of the dishwasher. If the issue
returns after its cleaned then it means that the control board has gone bad and
should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

OE in your dishwasher is a
drain error and dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked
drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain
is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then
remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump
for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely.
Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller & clean the
chopper assembly. If the issue
returns after cleaning then the drain pump assembly should be replaced. Hope
this helps...please post back for further assistance.
