Before you start pulling the machine to bits, just try plugging it into a different socket or an extension cord if there is not another socket close enough. (If it is currently plugged into to double socket don't just try it in the other one, make sure its a totally separate power point).
repost if problem still persists.

Lights will not turn on


I experienced the same problem. One day the lights on the unit weren't on. The wall outlet that the dishwasher uses had power because the Garbage Disposal that also uses the same outlet had power. Turns out the power supply cord also tied to the water supply hose and had over the months (due to the constant slapping or dancing of the water hose whenever the electrically controlled water valve was opened or closed), had caused the female receptor prong inside the wall outlet to loose continuity with the male prong of the dishwasher power cord. It might have been a defective wall plug all along but the wall outlet worked for months before the problem arose. Anyway, after replacing the wall outlet the dishwasher again has lights and works fine.

How do I fix -no power issue on my samsung dmr78ahs dishwasher?


To eliminate a dishwasher problem, run a heavy 3 pronged extension cord from a known working outlet to the dishwasher and plug the dishwasher into the cord. If you still have no power (dishwasher is not showing any signs of life) then it is a dishwasher problem (circuit board, bad connection from dishwasher cord to dishwasher, etc).

If the dishwasher actually shows signs of life, then you may have a tripped breaker. Check the breaker to make sure it is on and that the tab is not either in the center or the off position. Also, try moving the dishwasher cord's plug from the outlet it is currently in to another outlet in the under sink area. There is a chance that the plug got switched from the normal outlet to the outlet that controls the garbage disposal, that outlet should only be hot when the disposal wall switch is flipped to the on position.

After completing the wash & rinse cycle the dishwasher won't drain


In my experience, in this case it is likely that your dishwasher is not draining at any time throughout the wash or rinse cycles. The overflow float is preventing your machine from overflowing.

Here are a few things to check:
  1. If this is a new install, or the disposal has just been replaced, make sure the plug in the disposal has been removed. The nipple where the drain line from your dishwasher attaches has a plug on the inner wall of the grind chamber from the factory.
  2. Listen to the sound of the drain motor by starting a cycle and then canceling after a few seconds. Make sure the drain pump is actually running and not just making a loud humming noise as if it is seized, or something is binding it.
  3. Finally, check your drain line from your dishwasher to your disposal (most common drain connection), or where ever your drain line connects. Slight kinks and sharp bends have a tendancy to collect debris and create a plug-up. If this is the case, simply take the drain line loose from the drain pump and from the disposal and take it an outside water faucet. Place the disposal end against the faucet and slowly turn on the water. It will usually blow the plug right out.

I just installed the dishwasher and do not turn on


On the LG LDF6810 model, you should be able to open the door and press the power button (right side of the top of the door.) It should wake up and you should see lights.
If that fails to happen, trace the power from under the dishwasher to where it is plugged in to the wall. If it is under the sink and you have a waste disposal, it is very possible that both outlets are switched on/off by the disposal switch. I would find a known-good table light or something similar and plug it in to the outlet and see if the light turns on when I switch it on. Electrician is needed to separate the top/bottom outlets so the dishwasher is always on and the disposal is properly switched.
If the dishwasher is not connected to an outlet, rather directly connected via electrical wire, have an electrician confirm the hot, neutral and ground wires are properly connected under the dishwasher and check the circuit breaker/fuse for that circuit.
Please report back what you find, OK?

I would like to know where is the plug for dihwasherdrain plug located ot he garbage disposal


It's not guaranteed that your particular model will have a dishwasher drain nipple, but it does, it'll be on the side, near the top of the machine. If the disposer is new you must knock out the plug inside the nipple before connecting a dishwasher. If the disposer doesn't have a nipple, you can get a piece of pipe to fit to the non-disposer side of the sink where you can connect the dishwasher drain hose.

Power up to the control panel \ Dishwasher dead


First, power usually comes in from plug, under the kitchen sink, and shares a socket with the disposal(which is controled with the wall switch) make sure you are plugged into the right recepticle. try a lamp or something in the plug make sure it's got power. then check where the cord attaches to the dishwasher..usually behind the kickplate bottom, right front. Dissconnect power then remove the cover at that point you might find the wire nuts or connection is loose..if that is good ...then there could be a broken wire in the that feeds the timer/controller..those are hard to find...a wire that looks good but within the insulation of the wire, it's broken, usually where the wire bends at the bottom of the door.

How to knock out garbage disposal plug


Turn off the power source to the garbage disposal. Take the drain hose from the dishwasher off the connector going to the disposal (if connected). Insert a flat blade screwdriver in the drain hose fitting and tap a few times with a hammer. The plastic plug will pop off inside the garbage disposal. Reach inside from the top of the disposal to retrieve the plastic plug. Sometimes you have to use a little force to tap the plug out. Hope this helps you.
