Question about LG 24 in. LDS 5811 Built-in Dishwasher

Low water level

My LG LDS5811ST dishwasher, since day one, has had a water level issue.

The pump makes an "over spins" noise as it draws in air instead of water during all cycles.

Adding a few cups of water at the start of each cycle stops the problem and the washer works fine.

I've tested the float switches but they don't seem to effect the water fill level. It is as if it fills on a timer.

Help please

One of 2 problems is causing this.  Either you have a bad float switch which is located on the left side of the dishwasher, or you have a water leak and is losing water when it is in the wash mode.  You will need to have it checked by a qualified LG technician.

LG dishwasher model # LDS5811ST won't turn on


Hi

First make sure that nothing is blocking the drain pump assembly located inside the lower front panel of the dishwasher. If the issue returns after its cleaned then try to reset the dishwasher control by pressing the HEATED DRY button and hold it for 15 seconds, if its still not resolved then it means that the control board has gone bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

I have and LG nodel #LDS5811ST and after ad couple of minutes it stops with the code LE showing in the time window, what does this mean!


The wire harness has probably degraded and broken inside the door panel of the unit.

This unit may need a new wire harness, Main PCB, Sump and inner door liner.
Depending on serial#

Contact LG @ 1 800 243-0000 they may help you out.

This is a known issue on older dishwashers.

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!
