LG LDF6810ST won't power up there is power going to dishwasher


the main control board is fried from what you've described, you will need to dismantle it and remove the board (there will likely be visible signs of damage if there was a burning smell) relatively easy and cheap to replace

Won't turn on and stay on unless you depress and hold the start button...


Have you recently smelt a burning smell? We did, the power switch had shorted/was faulty (we stuck some toothpicks in which helped jam it in for a bit, until it failed completely). You need to replace the power switch, PN 674000300089
There is an excellent video which explains how to replace this (also has a link to buy the part), we did it ourself just for the cost of the part.

I have a stove 61ehdo stainless Steele cooker which tonight has just stopped working I've had it approximately 7yrs . Oven rings etc won't turn on . I was in the middle of making dinner when this happened...


If you smelled a plastic burning smell you've burned some wiring somewhere. You would need to pull out the whole thing and start by looking at the back. I once had a dead mouse that had shorted across the relatively high voltage terminals common on most stoves. You should unplug the stove before doing anything like removing panels. Be very careful. Once you've found the problem you might need to call an electrician to fix it, depending on how brave you feel and where the problem is.

Our dishwasher started smelling like something is burning, I turned it off straight away, no visible smoke or anything but it hasn't been cleaning very well for a while now. Are these the death throes? Or...


Make sure there isn't any plastic on the heating element. Also check to see if there is any evidence of previously melted plastic. If it smells like plastic burning & you aren't using any heated options, cut the power & call for service.

My Hobart dishwasher just quite running. They said they smelt a burn smell a little before this happened. They also mentioned that it sounded like it was running a little rougher then usual. Any ideas?


Could be something has gone into the pump and jammed it, I have seen this when the filters are not in place properly, last one I saw a bottle top was in the pump.

I suspect the start relay burnt on the compressor. Now the compressor can not turn on. You need to repalce the relay.
