Question about LG 24 in. LD-12BW5 Free-standing Dishwasher

2 Answers

Water leakage in dishwasher? Cant turn on. Model LD-12AW2.

The rubber seal for my dishwasher had been removed by a family member. I did not notice this and turned it on. Half way through the cycle I stopped it and checked to see as it did not sound right. I noticed the seal missing, so I found it and replaced it. However I have not been able to restart the machine or cycle. I have tried powering off, and starting a new wash. I can select a cycle but then it just beeps and does not start.

POSSIBLY REMOVE THE SEAL AGAIN THEN RETRY. IF UNIT STARTS THEN YOU KNOW DOOR LIMIT WAS NOT CORRECTLY ACTIVATED. THEN REINSTALL RUBBER AND RETRY.

Why is our dishwasher leaking water


There are 4 places it could be leaking. 1) at the connection where the water line connects to the dishwasher. If the dishwasher has been in operation for a long time then this is not likely to be the problem. If this were the problem you would notice water even when the dishwasher was not running. 2) at the drain hose connection. You would notice the water during and shortly after a drain cycle. The drain outlet is usually a hard plastic over which the rubber drain tube is clamped. Either the plastic could crack or the hose could dry out and crack. 3) The seal around the pump could be leaking. 4) The door seal could be leaking, though this in not usually the problem. You can probably determine the problem by removing the bottom panel so that you can see underneath the unit, and then run a cycle. There are usually 2 screws between the door bottom and the lower panel (near the sides of the machine) and 2 more screws at the
bottom of the lower panel (the recessed part of the panel) near the sides. Don't stick your hand under there because you will have power to the unit and a wet floor. That is a bad combination which could be lethal. Just shine a flashlight under and see where the water is leaking from as it runs. Remove power at the circuit breaker before trying to do any service on the unit.

One cure for a slow emptying dishwasher


My dishwasher was emptying very slowly.So slowly that the next fill cycle would start before the previous cycle's water was gone.I turned the machine over,and noticed a short length of metal pipe in the hose line that carried the water from the tub to the sink.There was what I believe a ground wire attached to this pipe,so this was for grounding the machine,I assume.Anyway,it was held to the rubber hose ends with simple spring clamps.I removed the clamps,and examined the interior of the pipe.It was half filled with scale! I used a screwdriver to clean out the pipe,put it back in place,and the machine empties normally again.

Dishwasher isn't draining all the water out after cycle is complete. Checked all lines, no clogs and both pumps are working


YOU MAY NEED A SIMPLE DEVICE CALLED A PISTON AND NUT ASSEMLY. A RUBBER SEAL ON IT HAS FAILED.
TO LOCATE IT......OPEN DISHWASHER, REMOVE LOWER RACK AND IN THE REAR YOU WILL SEE A SCREEN COVER, REMOVE THAT SCREEN AND UNDERNEATH TOU SHOULD SEE A ROUND THING, UNSCREW IT AND INSPECT IT IN THE CENTER RUBBER SEAL, IF BAD REPLACE THE PISTON AND NUT ASSEMBLY

We have mold on the seal? how do you remove it?


First run the unit through a HOT wash cycle with no garments in it. Add a cup of bleach and a half cup of granular dishwashing detergant. This will kill the mold and help to wash it away. If any mold remains, put on the rubber gloves you hate so much and wash the seal with a rag and a warm water/bleach solution.

Leaking dishwasher


If your dishwasher leaks, check these:Main tub seal
Door gasket or seal
Water-inlet valve
Hoses

Main tub seal
Note… If the main motor of your dishwasher is mounted vertically, beneath the center bottom of the dishwasher, the following instructions probably apply to you. But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn't serviceable--you need to replace the entire pump and motor assembly.

The main tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water in the dishwasher from leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get to the seal, which is inside the dishwasher, remove the:

1. Lower rack
2. Spray arm
3. Spray arm support
4. Wash/drain impellers


Then pry the seal out of its housing and replace it.


Door gasket or seal
Over time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly. You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak. 


Water-inlet valve
The water-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply line from the house and the rubber tube leading from the valve to the inside of the dishwasher may leak. Tighten or repair/replace these as necessary.

The water-inlet valve could mechanically stick open. When that happens, the water continues to flow into the dishwasher, which then floods your kitchen. Turn off the water supply to the dishwasher, and replace the valve.

Hoses
Behind the lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastic hoses. If the leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If that doesn't work, replace the hose.
