You would hold down cancel or stop for 5 seconds usually the cancel option puts the unit into drain in which after it finishes draining it would unlock the door on the other hand if you had a door switch error and your unit was a frontload washer and you are unable to get into the unit even after the unit has stopped you would remove the lower panel on the machine and reach up along the side that has the door lock there would be a small cord with a round circle on the end by pulling this cord down this also unlocks the door this 2nd par is only for a frontload washer if you have any further questions message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped it allows me to help others in similar situations Thanks

Is there anyway to only dry the dishes? Sometimes the dishes don't get all the way dry and I just want to run the dry cycle again. Thanks! Dawn


You could simply open the door at the end of the cycle and let the air do the job. If your dishwasher is controlled by a manual dial, you could open the door, move the timer past the wash cycles stopping on the dry cycle and close the door to start another dry cycle. This option is expensive, by the way.

Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com

Door will not open


if there is still water in it use a wet dry shop vac and attach it to the end of the drain hose.once the water is gone it should unlock the lid.then check for blockage.
turn the timer or cancel any kind of wash cycle then unplug the unit for a few minutes this should reset the control to unlock the lid

LG7810 will not dry dishes


THE DRY CYCLE HAS A PORT ON THE INSIDE OF THE DOOR WITH A BLOWER MOTOR. THE PORT SHOULD OPEN AND THE FAN MOTOR COME ON DURING THE DRY CYCLE TO EVACUATE THE STEAM FROM THE INTERIOR. THE PORT IS OPENED WITH A WAX MOTOR. IF IT FAILS, THE PORT WILL REMAIN CLOSED AND DRYING WILL NOT TAKE PLACE.
TO VERIFY OPERATION, WHEN THE DRY CYCLE STARTS,
WAIT ABOUT 2 MINUTES, THEN OPEN THE DOOR AND LOOK IN THE ROUND VENT ON THE INTERIOR OF THE DOOR. IT SHOULD BE OPENED. IT WILL SLOWLY CLOSE AS THE DOOR REMAINS OPEN. YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO SEE THIS ACTION.
