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

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???



I have a LG dishwasher brought brand new, only 5 mnths old, detergent does not dissolve, i have tried powder and tablet, also not cleaning dishes well.

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

Dishwasher door leaks on the left side at the first part of the wash cycle. Seems like it seals itself as it runs and gets hotter. Cannot see any wear or tear on the door seal (2 years old). will replace,...


Hi there... Try the simple things first. Quite often Fridges and dishwashers (with flat front seals) will start to leak if the body of the unit is distorted. This frequently happens if the supporting feet are not adjusted properly when setting up the unit in the first place. After a while the cabinet will begin to 'sink' in one corner which distorts the flatness of the whole front of the frame, allowing leaks. Try cranking up the foot nearest the leaking seal and see if it makes the leak better or worse. If worse, then crank up the opposite foot. Good luck.

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.

Want to remove present dishwasher for replacement with a new one. How do you do it.


Most dishwashers are housed in a cabinet next to your kitchen sink.
Not knowing how exactly your machine is set up I will just advise you on common setup features and removal.
First open the doors to kitchen cabinet under the sink. If you see two hoses connected under the sink, they most likely are from your dishwasher. One is an inlet hose which would be connected to a water tap. The other would be a drain hose which would be connected via a clamp to the drain under your sink.
Turn off water tap to remove inlet hose. Unscrew or undo the clamp fixing your drain hose to drain pipe. Note when you remove the drain hose the hole to the drain pipe is exposed. You need to block this off as it will leak water when ever the sink is running. I normally get a plastic bag and twist it inside the hole and tape it off.
Next you need to locate the power cord and plug for the dishwasher. This is normally under the sink cabinet as well. However, check either side of the dishwasher. Sometimes they are behind the dishwasher.
Once you have disconnected the hoses, open dishwasher door. Look on the inside walls of the dishwasher. Some models are screwed into the wall of the cabinet so you need to unscrew machine. The screws go in either from the side walls or from the inside roof of dishwaser to your benchtop.
You need to also remove the kitchen kickboard if one has been installed infront of the dishwasher.
When machine is free open the diswasher door and grab either side of door and gently pull machine out. Have someone help you feed the hoses through as you pull out.
If the machine does not easily pull out check again for hidden anchor screws around the edges of the machine or even clamps which fix the hoses to the cabinet.
If you have issues pulling it out see if you can take some pictures and I will help you.

My Asko D1976 dishwasher is not cleaning dishes properly. There is a lot of clumped detergent left in the dispenser after wash cycles are complete, and many of the dishes have dried-on food left on them. ...


First of all, don't pre-rinse the dishes. Check the water temperature, it should be between 120 and 140 degrees. Be sure you are not partially blocking the dispenser door so that it isn't opening.

My 5 month old LG dishwasher is making a high


Good day-

I am the proud owner of a LG LDF6920WW. I bought it 10-2008 and it developed a high pitched sqeel (HPS) exactly 2 years and 3 months later. It first occurred on a monday and repeated on the following Wednesday. After the water filled the machine and the swirling, pumping, cleaning cyale began, the HPS began and lasted until the drying cycle. I searched the internet and determined that this HPS was occurring anywhere from 5 days of being purchased, up until the 2 year mark. I was weary of believing that a motor would fail in a five day period as well as last for up to 2 years, so I "Googled" parts for my model and looked at the scematic or parts break down chart. Refering to the chart, I began to disasemble my dishwasher after removing it from the cabinet and taking it to the garage.

I focused on the sump assembly. I removed all parts, motors, baffles, bladders, check valves, etc. I thougroughly cleaned all pieces and parts with windex and a scotch/sponge. I removed all food and debris from all surfaces and gaskets. I cleaned the main body cover by using a low pressure hose and alternating cleaning the top and bottow. I made sure not to rip the micro screening. Upon re-assembly I used high heat, automotive bearing grease to lubricate the seals where motor shafts protruded through them. ****Important**** I set the clutch setting at 3 on my electric drill to screw the assembly back together. I also disassembled the water inlet valve and the float assembly on the left side, exterior of the dishwasher and cleaned that completely out. I flushed all hoses as well.

I put it back in, connected all water, electricity and back-flow devices. The dishwasher is once again silent. All motors and bearings seemed fine. During tear down, the only problems I found were: 1) A lot of debris in several places. 2) dry gasket to shaft surfaces.

Simply things to check, you want to make sure your electrical connections are all tight, at the breaker (If your comfortable) and at the connection under the dishwasher. It's possible that the breaker may just simply be going bad. If you have a Amp meter you could run the Dishwasher and see how many amps the washer is pulling, and com pair the amount to the Name plate data where the model number is at, its usually listed in the same place.

Good Luck!
