Question about LG LDF6810 Built-in Dishwasher
I have had this dishwasher for about a year now--it seems to be getting worse and worse upon use--I have removed it from under the cabinet several times and ran it thru the cycles and all of the water seems to be flowing through the system fine. It seems the more we were using it the longer the cycles were taking. Now we have all of the issues listed--bearely cleaning the dishes, not rinsing well and leaving residue all over dishes and especially silverware and the detergent(no matter which brand I have used-several different kinds--tabs,liquid, powder)doesnt seem to dissolve. I have tried running it through the cycles with a degreaser solution and it seemed to do better for about or five times after that. I have not been happy with this dishwasher from the beginning and should have returned it. It has never done an excellent job on the dishes but I considered it well enough considering I paid only $198.00 for it on clearance brand new. Guess it wasnt such a good bargain after all. If I had the money I would just ditch this one and get a new one. Any suggestions on what could be going on with this machine?? should I just get used to dishpan hands???
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.

The problem is not the dishwasher but the water that actually is going into it. the white, powder substance is because of hard water. there is a affordable product out there called the dishwasher filtration system. it will filter the water going into your dishwasher and solve the problem once and for all!!! it is affordable and easy to install. www.dishwasherfilter.com

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.

The first thing to check with any of the newer dishwashers is the water temprature coming into the machine and the amount of water coming in. Since you are having trouble with the detergent dissolving, I expect the water is not hot enough. Many of the detergents require 140 degrees f to dissolve properly.
The incoming water should be 120 degrees minimum, then the dishwasher will heat it up some more. The cooler the water, the longer the cycle will take. It won't advance to the next step until the water reaches a certain temp, depending on the cycle selected and the model of dishwasher.
If the dishwasher has to heat the water too much, it will cause the heat element to fail prematurely.
If your water heater is set to the average 130-135 setting, then you may be able to solve your problem by running the hot water at the sink before turning the dishwasher on. This will get the cold water flushed from the pipes so the washer fills with hot water on the first fill.
Also. start the washer in a cycle, let it fill and start washing. Open the door and see how much water is in the tub. It should come up to the bottom of the heating element.
Post back and let me know what you find out.
