First perform a vinegar cycle wash in the dishwasher. Pour a cup of vinegar into the bottom of the dishwasher. Keep the temperature at the highest setting possible and perform a wash cycle.Then start using a dishwasher most probably that would solve the problem. If this does not solve the problem then there must be some parts worn out or faulty creating the problem.

There are many probable causes of failure .

To clean the dishes the water temperature is essential.It the water is not hot then the dishes will not be cleaned properly.So check the water temperature.

Also check the filter in your dishwasher.Clean the filter if there is accumulation of debris in the filter.

If residue is a brown color it can be minerals in the water.You can buy a stainless steel cleaner, just put it in the machine and run it thru a cycle.
Use only good brand name detergent - no tablets- use rinse aid- check arms for blockages-stack dishes with soiled side facing the centre-
LG are an excellent dishwasher

Cloudy Dishes - tried different detergents and not much change


Check the following to address this issue you are having..

1. No water
Make sure you get water to the dishwasher. Check to see if the water shut-off valve (located under the sink) is open. If you get water to the dishwasher, but there is still no water inside during the fill cycle, the problem might be with a faulty water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side), in which case replace the water valve.

2. Not enough water
If there is not enough water, the dishes would not get cleaned. This could be caused by a partially closed water shut-off valve (located under the sink), or a faulty dishwasher water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side).

3. Clogged spay arms
There is usually two, sometimes three spray arms in a dishwasher. Make sure there is no debris blocking the holes inside each spray arm.

4. Water temperature is too low
To get the best results, the water has to be at 120 degrees Fahrenheit when entering the dishwasher.

5. Not enough soap
If you only fill one part of the soap cup, try adding soap to both parts.

6. Smoky film on dishes and glasses
This problem occurs due to excessive calcium build up inside the dishwasher. Try cleaning you dishwasher using a dishwasher cleaner. There are a few out there, I recommend a solution called Dishwasher Magic.

Lg dishwasher never heats water


The LG 7811 dishwasher is supposed to even support a cold water (vs. hot water) connection. Then it will heat the water up to 120 degrees upon each fill cycle. This is not optimal and it adds much time to the already long full cycle. When you run the hot water at the kitchen sink until it is hot and then kick off the cycle, is the water hot at the beginning? It should be 120 degrees minimum and well under 140 degrees maximum.
Do you get any error codes on the display? Troubleshooting is possible, but recommend you contact LG service at the number in the user guide asap. Press for fast, free resolution to this problem. Please reply when you have gotten this fixed, explaining what fixed this nice, quiet dishwasher. Good Luck!
PS: When you get it running, do not use ultra-cheap dishwasher soap. Recommend Electrosol powder or cascade. Never use gel or tablets on this water conserving dishwasher.
