Water wont stop running


My experience with LG Dishwashers was so unpleasant that I swore I would NEVER own another LG product. LG sent a technician named "Anthony" who removed the machine and determined that there was a pinched tube. I find it hard to believe that a pinched tube would cause a sudden issue with water all over my kitchen floor. And then Anthony went under the sink, tampered with the water inlet valve and created a very small leak! Then Anthony surmised that the leak under my sink must have dripped down on to the line leading to the dishwasher, gone through the hole at the bottom of the cabinet and out and up into the dishwasher causing the bottom of the dishwasher to be completely rusted out. He then said that if it could be fixed it would cost a fortune but he wouldn't feel safe fixing it. I don't know about you, but if I heard a technician tell me that, I would consider the machine useless. It wasn't even 4 years old. The day before, the water guy had come out to replace the filter in the RO system we had under the sink. If there had been a leak, he would have seen it. I had also called Frys where I had bought the machine. The day after Anthony came, Two Frys technicians came out and immediately started examining under the sink. But there was just one problem; Anthony didn't do enough of a job to cause the leak to keep leaking. As the Frys techs pointed out, if there was a leak that had been running for as long as it would have had to have been leaking, the floor would have been soft and wet not dry and hard as they found it. And as far as the cabinet area where the dishwasher sat on untiled floor/bare wood? Dry as a bone. I have no idea what was going on inside of that machine, but when Anthony took it out he showed me - after taking off the base plate or whatever - that the bottom of the machine was completely rusted and trashed. LG refused to post my review but if your machine is not draining or is spilling water out onto your floor, there's a good chance the machine is rusted out. Unless you bought an extended warranty, LG will do nothing to help. Frys, on the other hand, went above and way beyond and despite my not buying an extended warranty - who expects a dishwasher to die in under 4 years? - gave me a very generous credit and allowed me to use it on a new machine (Whirlpool) and they met Best Buy's sale price. I had to pay to have it installed, but that was a lot less than having to buy a new machine would have cost had Frys not stepped up. I understand this problem is endemic to LG which doesn't stand for "Life's' Good" if you are the unfortunate owne of any model like this. Just so you know - from my own experience when I called around, no general appliance repair person is authorized to touch LG machines. Only LG can send a technician and that really surprised me. LG told me they could only offer a replacement if the machine was determined to be not fixable which, apparently, was not what Anthony said. Anthony said if it could be fixed, he wouldn't feel comfortable doing it. I guess in the translation is "Anthony would not fix it but that doesn't mean some other technician wouldn't. That said the machine could be fixed for a small fortune." I can't help you except suggest you pull the machine out to check for any crimped or pinched hoses and take off the base plate to see if the machine is rusted out. The only solution I can think of is start saving for a new machine and don't buy another LG. They're not customer-experience-driven and once it's sold, the service stops.

Hello.
If it's filling all the time when dishwasher is not even running? The water inlet valve that the house water supply connects to at the dishwasher,is sticking open and needs to be replaced..what you can do now to stop it from constantlu filling is turn off water supply to the d/w from under the kitchen sink.

Typically the model number is on a label on the egde of the door inside or on the rim of the tub..it would be needed to order a water valve

Too much sink water causes flooding from dishwasher.


If you let it sit with vinegar and it worked after for a while that tells me it may be plugged up with grease. Might be worth while trying to clean it out with Drain O a drain cleaner. Make sure its washed clean after. Grease and dirt builds up after a while in all machines. If vinegar works might be worth cleaning more often.

Kitchenaid dishwasher is leaking


depends. take the lower panels off the dishwasher below the door right at the floor. Once this is done you will need a flashlight. If possible lay on the floor with the flashlight and activate the dishwasher. Look for the leak at that point. If it starts leaking in the drain cycle then the impeller is leaking and will need to be replaced. These can be a little pricey so take the model and serial numbers and call an appliance parts house for the cost and it is a little bit of a hassel to replace so only you will know if you want to tackle it yourself or buy a new dishwasher. If is leaking during the rinse cycle then the gasket at the base if the washer (where the motor connects to the dishwasher itself) has gone bad and this is a bugger bear to repair. So it's up to you if you want to repair or replace.

Good luck on repairs Hope I helped you some

Draining water on kitchen floor


I am not familiar with your model dishwasher, but had a similar problem a few years back. I am assuming you have checked the obvious causes, such as a worn, or damaged gasket around the door. My problem was fixed by replacing the lower spray arm. The spray arm is a couple inches wide, about 18 inches long, has holes in it and rotates as it dispenses water - some lift up during the wsk and rinse cycles. In my case some of the holes got plugged up with gunk, which resulted in the water shooting out harder and further from the other holes. Those streams of water went places they were not designed to go and ended up on my kitchen floor. So check that part out and see if it is the cause of your problem. Good luck!

Most water supply lines are attached to the hot water supply under the kitchen sink. If not it may be accessible from the basement somewhere under where the dishwasher is located.

Regarding the issue with the dishwasher, the inlet water valve is no longer closing because of the limescale that has built up inside. That is why it fills on it's own even when it's off. Instead of replacing the dishwasher you could just replace the inlet water valve if you want to get a few more years out of it.

Water is leaking onto the floor from the front of the unit.


You might try a part number 3920DD3005A door gasket, which is a bit thicker than the old ones and should help with this issue for many LG dishwashers.

LG Dishwasher model LDF7811 doesn't clean


LG DOES ****. We had this dishwasher and from the very beginning it didn't seem to dry and within a few months it was not cleaning as well as we had hoped. Within 9 months it had gotten so bad that we were really unhappy and then we got an error code. LG arranged for a local repair company to take a look at it. They ended up replacing EVERY part of the dishwasher except the tub itself. They replace the pump, the heater, the whole door assembly, the wiring harness (the wires had started melting into the sound proofing material), the electronics. Literally everything. From that point on we really noticed that we were getting food chunks on everything. Not only that, all the dishes were greasy and it wasn't even coming close to drying. There was mildew and mold growing inside the tub! Finally I got fed up and threw a fit with LG. They sent another repair guy out and he told us it was going to take 3 weeks to get a brand new pump and heater because the replaced heater had failed. After I complained to LG the repair guy got the parts in a week. He quickly replaced it and tested it and it flooded our kitchen (hardwood flooring) and leaked through the floor to the ceiling downstairs. The new heater was faulty. Not only that, the repair guy told us that the first repair, 9 months earlier, had not been completed and our turbulence detector had never been hooked up. Our solution? We fought with LG and Home Depot, where we got it, and LG offered to replace it with a new dishwasher. I said forget it, we didn't ever want an LG dishwasher again. Home Depot stepped up and took back our 2 year old dishwasher and refunded all our money. We bought a KitchenAid and we LOVE IT!
