Question about LG Dishwashers

2 Answers

Hello - I have a LG LD 2060SH and wanted to clean it completely - sadly I have a part called the Valve or Float Component (small white plastic thing!!!) and I can't locate where it should go! Yes, I undid all the bottom filters on the water inlet system and spray arms, they were all clogged even after special cleaning - Can you explain where it goes as I put everything back together - now it is all squeaky clean! I knew I should have taken pictures along the way, but I was so happy that everything came apart so easily. I have an added gusto as I managed to change the door seal on my LG 2 weeks ago form this site, a nightmare job, but I did it, with a little help from my husband!

There should be a little hole in the bottom of the DW and it simply slips back into that hole.

I have no water coming into the dishwasher, i have cleaned the filter but it will not operate. The dishwaher is on but no water is coming into the unit


Hello there
If there's no water entering your dishwasher, check these: Water-inlet valve The water-inlet valve lets water enter the machine. If this valve is defective, you need to completely replace it. It's usually located behind the lower access panel on the left or right side. It's the device with the main water line (usually copper) from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it. Float switch The float switch is a small electrical switch that's located right below the dishwasher "floor." Above the switch, on the inside of the dishwasher, is a plastic cylinder that floats up as water fills the dishwasher. If this switch is defective, or if the plastic float gets caught or trapped in the raised position, the water can't enter the dishwasher. If the float switch is defective, you need to replace it.

Water will not pump into dishwasher but will pump out


Hello. there are two devices that control the flow of water into a dishwasher. They are the water-inlet valve and the float switch.

Water-inlet valve The water-inlet valve lets water enter the machine. If this valve is defective, you need to completely replace it.

It's the device with the main water line (usually copper) from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it.

Tablet not dissolving, dishes not clean


Hi Trina. I wish I was nearby as I would come over and take care of this problem for you.

There are two possible reasons for the situation as you describe it: 1. Water-inlet valve The water-inlet valve lets water enter the machine. If this valve is defective, you need to completely replace it. It's usually located behind the lower access panel on the left or right side. It's the device with the main water line (usually copper) from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it.
2. Float switch The float switch is a small electrical switch that's located right below the dishwasher "floor." Above the switch, on the inside of the dishwasher, is a plastic cylinder that floats up as water fills the dishwasher. If this switch is defective, or if the plastic float gets caught or trapped in the raised position, the water can't enter the dishwasher. If the float switch is defective, you need to replace it.

If you are mechanically inclined you can repair either of these but if you are not you will have to hire it done. Now that you know it is one of two problems you can tell the repairman ahead of time and get a price on the repair. Then shop around for the best price.

I have a lg dishwasher ld-14aw1over flow


On an LG LD-14AW1, three is a float sensor on the left hand side of the dishwasher, behing the water outlet port.
It is the sensor that tells the dishwasher to stop filling just before the wash or rinse cycle begins.
A service call is needed or post back here is you want help replacing it.

No water is entering the Exxcel auto option dishwasher


hello there,
If there's no water entering your dishwasher, check these:
1. Water-inlet valve
2. Float switch

Water-inlet valve
The water-inlet valve lets water enter the machine. If this valve is defective, you need to completely replace it. It's usually located behind the lower access panel on the left or right side. It's the device with the main water line (usually copper) from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it.


Float switch
The float switch is a small electrical switch that's located right below the dishwasher "floor." Above the switch, on the inside of the dishwasher, is a plastic cylinder that floats up as water fills the dishwasher. If this switch is defective, or if the plastic float gets caught or trapped in the raised position, the water can't enter the dishwasher. If the float switch is defective, you need to replace it.

LG LD12AW2 Dishwasher overflowing


On the LG LD-12AW2 model, there is a float assembly just behind the wall where the water inlet port is located inside the unit.
When that float (or the micro-switch inside it) fails, water will continue to flow in without stopping . That causes the overflowing.
Post back here if you are looking for more specific guidance.
Good Luck!
