Question about LG 24 in. LDS 5811ST Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher
When the dishwasher is done running, all the powder soap is in the dispencer? it does not use up the soap and my dishes are not washed.
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.

If you are noticing that the dishes are not clean, then there are a few things to check for. Check the soap powder if it's kept in a dry environment. Also try replacing the powder with something like a gel or liquid. Next thing to check for is the water pressure and fill valve. Check if the water is filling in and the spray arms are throwing the water with enough pressure. Try and listen to the sound if you hear a proper spraying action sound.
If it seems as a low water pressure then check the fill valve. Now, check if dishwasher is draining the water or not. While the dishwasher is working check whether the dishwasher is draining and there is not much left out water after the cycle is complete. Try cleaning the spray arm with a soft brush. The water temperature plays a major role in cleaning of dishes. The temp should be between 125 and 150 F for dishwasher to clean the dishes. Hope this helps...
