You may have a water issue.  Be sure that the water line is connected to the hot water pipes, not cold water.  If your dishwasher is connected to the cold water, the soap residue will occur because it cannot dissolve in cold water properly.
Is your water very hard??  If so, you may need to get a water softener to remove the hard scales.

I Have the same issue, it sounds like the arms try and start up 4 times then each time power back down, the top arm is not spinning at all. On the fifth time a I hear grinding and then the mid and lower arms spin, soap streaks down the door, nothing stuck in any of the arms, 16 months old, 750.00 out of pocket for junk!

Washer arm not working


If your dishes are getting clean, then your problem is a "feture" not a failure. The LG LDS5811 has a Verio motor/check valve that switches between cleaning the upper dishes and then the lower. Depending on when you open the door, one arm will not be spinning.
All the presure is routed either to the lower or upper arm, so it really does help - especially with a water conserving model like the 5811.
Good Luck!

The soap dispenser opens but the soap is not dispensed and the dishes do not get cleaned. Can you help?


Make sure that there is nothing blocking the soap door from opening fully when the dishwasher is shut. This happened to me and I also thought that the soap door was opening during the cycle when it actually only partially opened during the wash and then popped open fully when I opened the dishwasher at the end of the cycle. So some, but not all, of the soap was used.

Not good washing


You are either not using enough of the wash chemical or you need a product like Jet Dri...what you are seeing is mineral deposits.  Make sure your water temperature is hot enough.  If not sure, use the cycle which heats the water.

Soap left in the dish


With the LG LDS5811 dishwasher and other water/energy saving dishwashers, they are VERY ineffective with untra cheap powder detergent. Switching to Electrosol or Cascade has solved the problem -- and don't use too much.
If you add a whole house water softener, you will be AMAZED how much better your dishwasher and clothes washer work -- especially if your cut down on the amount of detergent your use.
Oh, never use gel or tablets in your diswasher. Ever.
if the problem with the detergent dispenser not opening is a seperate problem. Recommend you submit a seperate problem/question.
Good Luck!

Soap not dispensed and dishes not washed


water is getting past the gasket during the start up cycle. by the time the door opens, the water has caked up the soap. also, its not clear when in the cycle the door is opening.
try using liquid soap.
also, take a peek just after the machine has finished filling and starts washing to see if the door is opened on the soap disp.
good luck
