A large dishwasher should have a dedicated circuit breaker in the circuit breaker panel, check to see if the breaker is on, tripped, or off, it should be on. If it is on, remove the panel cover and check for power coming out of the circuit breaker, if there is power coming out of the circuit breaker, check for power at the dish washer. Checking for power at the dishwasher may involve pulling the connector cord if any and check the power outlet for power, if there is no power outlet and the dishwasher is hard wired into an electric box, the electric box needs to be opened and the wires need to be tested for power, involving removing the wire splice nuts or wire nuts. Once the power is verified to the dishwasher and the washer is still with no power, a fuse should be sought inside the dishwasher control panel or that the power feed wires are properly spliced. A voltage testor is needed to test for power. electric shock hazard on live wires, please be carefull or call out a electrician or handyman if power testing skill is questionable.

LG dishwasher LDS5811ST

The problem with the dishwasher acting haunted is probably the main controller card. If you don;t have an extended waranty, know that LG will cover the parts for free through 24 months but after 12 months, the labor will be charged.

If you have confirmed power to dishwasher, you are pobably looking at a control board. I have only run into this one time on a LDS5811 so far. Parts on LG dishwashers have a two year warranty. You have to dissassemble the door to replace the part.

LG LDS5811BB Dishwasher

Some of the LG LDS5811 had problems with the wiring harness in the door panel. This is nothing to mess with unless you have disconnected the DW from power.
You can open the door panel by removing the screws around the inside edge of the DW. Or, better yet, firmly but politely contact LG service and tell them you are aware of LDS5811 dishwashers having these symptoms being caused by _melting_ wires in inside the door panel. This is true and even if the DW is out of warranty, LG should fix this problem at no cost to you.
Good Luck!

LD Dishwasher power problem

On the LDS5811 model, I doubt very much that the door switch would cause a full failure.
If you are confident the power is live into the dishwasher, the most common failure with this symptom is a failed controller card (PCB) and will require a service call to LG.
