If it is a lime scale deposit, check your inlet water quality.
If the dish water support salt for softening water add the salt in the
correct compartment provided in the machine.

Check rinse aid for dispensing! Check the level and refill
rinse aid liquid.

Run a empty cycle and clean the machine.

Electrical burning smell coming from control panel on westinghouse dishwasher


Had the same issue with a 903sa. Strong burning smell. Continued to run for a while then just died. Opened the control panel (4 screws holding the plastic part at the top of the door on - open the door to access).

Mains feed into the controller was totally fried. Case was all melted. Very nasty. There was nothing obvious on the Board other than a mains resistor that looked like it had been pretty hot at some stage. The three pin mains connector (at least I think it was 3 pins) was just a big, charred bit of goop.

1998 olds intrigue keeps running out of radiator fluid and hoses good


Is fluid leaking onto the ground? Onto the front floor? . If you cannot find an obvious leak, you may want to check you oil when car is cold. Look for traces of white goop, or water in the oil. Smell dipstick and see if it smells like gas . I'm leaning towadrs a head gasket if you cannot find a leak. More details will be needed to say anymore. Have a look for leaks first

Today, while watching tv on the Dish, tv suddenly started powercycling. I unplugged it, waited, and then tried a DVD -- worked fine. Tried Dish again, power cycled again -- on off on off, 1/2 second of...


If you are using a powerstrip may not be supplying enough power to run the LG HDTV and your HD receiver. If you are using a powerstrip make sure the receiver is plugged directly into the wall. Otherwise this may be a grounding issue please reply if this doesn't work and we can look into some other possibilities.

Bad smell on dried dishes after being washed.Stale water smell.


Try Running Goo Gone Through It Although It Smells Like Oranges It Removes Stains As Strong As Sap. Also Try Running The Dry Cycle While Its Empty Two Or Three Times.

Bad smell on dried dishes after being washed.Stale water smell.


correct, no filters to clean, but what you are smelling is soap residues that have built up on the heating element and when it goes thru the heat dry cycle, it burns the soap causing the odors.
trying the cleaners you have may help but the cause is the residues. you need to use a d/w cleaner like d/w magic or citric acid. if you just run the unit with the waterheat option and vinegar in a bowl right side up in the top rack, it should rinse out the residues then dont use to omuch soap and only use dry powder soap. no tablets or liquids.
run hot water at the faucet first and then be sure to use the heat option. it may take a few cycles to get rid of the odor but it will go away as you get the unit cleaned out.

Smell in LG LDF8812ST


First, scrape your dishes clear of food before putting them in.  Rotten food makes smells.  Second, use a good brand of detergent in the recommended amount and use the heating cycle to heat the water up.  
Most dish washers have a dryer heat cycle but this one apparently does not.  This may cause mold in the machine.  
How to get rid of the smell:  With no dishes in the machine, add half a cup of bleach in the bottom of the unit and do a full wash cycle.  If the unit still has an odor, get some baking soda...about a half cup and put that in the bottom of the machine.  Close the door and leave overnight.  Then, run the machine through one wet cycle...say a wash cycle and then it should stop smelling.
Hint:  When leaving dishes in the machine between uses, leave the door ajar...do not close tightly.
