Question about LG 24 in. LDF 7811 Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher
So they say it is a thermal error - getting too hot. how can this be fixed. the error comes on and will not go off. i unplugged it and that did not re-set the machine.
Thermistor problems are really very rare. One thing to look for is a possible broken wire in the door assembly. Remove the front door panel. Locate the wire harness. About 1/3 of the way up from the bottom of the door, look for a broken wire. If no broken wire, look for a kinked wire that may be on the way to being broken. Once all the broken wires are repaired, the unit should work fine. If there is no broken wire, then have the thermistor replaced.

If light is blinking then it may be an
issue with heater circuit, door switch or the thermal fuse, please reset the power to
the dishwasher. After, 5 minutes check if you are still getting the same error.
If yes, then it is a water heating fault. To resolve this error try pressing
this reset sequence-- Heat Dry - Normal - Heat Dry - Normal or High Temp - Air
Dry - High Temp - Air Dry or Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry, Hi Temp Scrub,
energy saver dry or High Temp Wash-Heated Dry-High Temp Wash-Heated Dry.
Now let the unit run for 2-3 minutes and then you press the Cancel/Drain button
and allow it to completely drain and reset. If this doesn't work then it's an
issue with the thermal fuse located on the control or the door switch that is bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps... Please post
back if you need more information.
