Question about LG 24 in. LDF 7811 Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

Open Question

There is a slime that builds up on the bottom of the dishwasher. I have owned dishwashers for over 30 years and this is the first time I have ever experienced this. I have run a cycle with just vinegar but it does not help. This is the worst dishwasher I have ever owned, I should have remained with Whirlpool, it is a much better product.

SOURCE: Whirlpool gold dishwasher leaves film on dishes

are you in a hard water area such as florida ? do you have a water softener? if so take a can of frozen concentrate orange juice and put the frozen hunk in the bottom of dishwasher and run for one cycle. the citric acid will dissolve undisolved soap . this works much better. than vinegar which will only remain through the first cycle and then drain out as for the already grey glasses wash them in a solution of equal amounts red wine vinegar and water with just a touch of dish soap using a sponge.

Try turning your tap off a bit till the noise stops but the dishwasher still fills, it can just be due to a bit too much pressure on your water valve.
hpe this helps

SOURCE: whirlpool gold dishwasher gets stuck at 53 minutes left for an hour

Try "resetting" the control board by running the diagnostic cycle. The cycle completes in 15 minutes. 
The details are in the service manual. The manual can be found hidden behind the tow plate (at the very bottom front of the washer).
The diagnostic cycle may tell you the problem. It also helps clear up some of the software gltiches. 
It is easy to run the diagnostic cycle.
Just the buttons in the following sequence. The sequence should be complete within 6 sec. 
heated dry -> Normal -> heated dry -> Normal
This will trigger diagnostic cycle of 19 intervals. Pay special attention to the intervals 18, 17, 9, 6, 4.
Interval 18 - displays your controller module number (should be letter 'd' followed by number 0 or 1 or 2 or something. Note that down for future reference.
Interval 17 displays 'software generation number' Note that down for future reference.
Then wait until you reach interval 9.  --- clean LED turns on - then an open or shorted thermister is detected.
-- Sanitized LED turns on - then the washer detected greater than 100 deg F temperature
Interval 7
-- Soaking/sensing LED should NOT come on (unless food soil is present).
Interval 4 -- Soaking/sensing LED should come on


Let the cycle complete and then try running the normal wash. Hopefully the possible glitches are cleared by now and you should have no problem. 
If this doesn't work, time to call the expert tech.

Why is my dishwasher water inlet valve clogged with slime?


The slime is a function of the water that you are feeding the device. Machine has nada to do with it. Unless you clean up your water supply you will continue to have this problemo.

Check the food grinder (small blade spins against a screen) in the bottom of the dish washer drain. I found the grinder to be inoperative and clogged which reduced / stopped flow of the wash water. Also, small pieces of clear plastic food wrap can block flow.

I have just moved into a resale home{two years old} and the bosch dishwasher has a terrible odor what do i do?


Works for me, empty the dishwasher of any dishes, silverware, pot or pans, get (2) jars of "Tang" orange drink. Use (1) jar to fill the soap dispenser and poor the rest into the bottom of the dishwasher.
Run the dishwasher through a normal wash cycle with no heat/dryer time.
Run a second time if necessary. The orange juice acid will dissolve the build up in the dishwasher and rinse it away. It also smells good when your done.
For regular maintenance, repeat once every 3 months or so. It will not harm the dishwasher and will keep the interior components fresh and clean.
Good luck.

most of the time when it leaks from the front door it is going to be from a corner. most every time the front door gasket is replaced to solve the problem. I have found that the gasket on my dishwasher last about 2 years before needing replaced. I clean the white hard scale that builds up on gasket frequently

Dishwasher Not Draining


In many cases the connection were the dishwasher connects to the disposal or sink trap will become stopped up with a build-up from materials from the dishwasher. With the dishwasher turned off disconnect the drain hose from the washer and sink connection. run an object through the connection going to the trap or disposal ( after shutting off power to disposal and clean out build-up. Shouldn't take over 30 min.
