I had a brand new Dishwasher do that, it wasn't an LG it was a Frigidaire i think, turned out to be some bits of plastic from the manufacturing process that were in the pump. I had another one that made thumping noises and turned out to be a little piece of the tape, you know all that blue or green tape they hold everything in place with when its new. Did you run it through a few cycles and see if the noise quit? Believe it or not when i called about the one that was squealing their customer service said to run a couple cycles to remove anything that might be in the pump from manufacturing, sure enough midway through the second wash cycle it just went quiet and never made another noise again after two years.
Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.This is normal for new dishwashers to run this long. Heavy duty cycles with options selected can run well over two hours. Your machine is ok..This is our number one service call for new dishwashers. One hour to an hour and a half if average.
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..
Your dishwasher has clogged water ports. Start the dishwasher with NO dishes in it. Once it starts the wash cycle,open the door and pour in 1 quart of WHITE vinegar and resume the wash cycle. That should clear out the residue. Change your dishwasher soap to the FINISH brand name for happy clean dishes.
Your Question: "My dishwasher is installed, but it won\'t go past the "washing" cycle. I
have very hot water and am not using the "sanitize" option. Any ideas
what could be causing this?
" Hi, I have ideas about your dishwasher. It apparently has a failed timer. If this is a new dishwasher installation of a new machine. Then it is defective and is covered under the manufacturer's warranty. The hot water issue is fine. A dishwasher's internal water temperature should be at least 140 degrees, so the machine will heat up water to accomplish this. I would cancel the cycle the machine is in test it in various cycles. I would try it in sanitize as well. If it completes the full cycle. Then use it. However, if it hangs up again. I will need a new timer mechanism. Hope this helps. If you have any questions at all, reply to me through this website. Best Regards, Mark
An automatic dishwasher
detergent dispenser door can become stuck for a few different reasons.
Some problems are easy to fix, while some require more work. Repairs
are basically the same no matter what brand of automatic dishwasher you
have, although specific parts might be required. Fortunately, even if
the detergent dispenser needs to be replaced, the problem is not an
emergency. The dishwasher will clean dishes fine even with a stuck

the basket that holds silverware as far from the detergent dispenser as
possible, or make sure no tall items are blocking the dispenser. Also,
keep other items such as plates and pans away from the dispenser.
Anything that winds up touching the dispenser during the wash cycle can
cause the dispenser door to stay closed. Run the dishwasher to see if
this solves the problem.
the front door panel according to your instruction manual, or find the
manufacturer's instructions online, which will probably be in a PDF
file. The panel is typically held on by 6 to 8 screws along the edge,
which you can see when the door is open. With most models, you won't
need to remove the screws at the bottom of the door, which are part of
the hinge assembly.
the detergent dispenser thoroughly from the inside of the dishwasher
and the exterior side as well. Accumulated detergent and other material
can interfere with the spring mechanism or halt the pivot action of the
door. Use very hot water and a micro-sized brush. You also can use a
mix of hot water and vinegar.
dispensers have a bimetallic strip or switch, attached by screws, which
triggers the door release. With the front door panel removed, locate
the switch, and push on it gently with a screwdriver until the
dispenser door opens. You might simply need to adjust the alignment of
a new switch if re-aligning the old one does not fix the problem.
Typically, these switches cost under $10. See Resources for a link to
different manufacturers where you can buy the part.
the two wires connected to the switch so you can correctly reconnect
them afterward, and then remove them from the terminals by holding the
slip-on connectors --- not the wires --- and pulling firmly. Use a pair
of needle-nosed pliers for a better grip. Then remove the switch from
the dispenser by removing the screws holding it in place. Connect the
wires to the terminals of the new switch, and attach the new switch to
the detergent dispenser. Replace the door panel.
the dishwasher again to see if the switch replacement has done the
trick. If not, decide whether to replace the entire dispenser according
to the manufacturer's instructions, or call a repair technician.
