On the LG LDF6810 model, you should be able to open the door and press the power button (right side of the top of the door.) It should wake up and you should see lights.
If that fails to happen, trace the power from under the dishwasher to where it is plugged in to the wall. If it is under the sink and you have a waste disposal, it is very possible that both outlets are switched on/off by the disposal switch. I would find a known-good table light or something similar and plug it in to the outlet and see if the light turns on when I switch it on. Electrician is needed to separate the top/bottom outlets so the dishwasher is always on and the disposal is properly switched.
If the dishwasher is not connected to an outlet, rather directly connected via electrical wire, have an electrician confirm the hot, neutral and ground wires are properly connected under the dishwasher and check the circuit breaker/fuse for that circuit.
Please report back what you find, OK?

Dishwasher wont empty

If you have a air gap installed on the counter top (it's the chrome r2d2 looking device) pull the top off and you'll notice a pipe draining into a pipe. Get the dishwasher started and then slowly turn the knob on the dishwasher to drain when you hear the motor kick in you should see water draining thru this device if not buy a new dishwasher and have a licensed plumber install it for you.

Water will not come into tub to start washing dishes

Paul,If this dishwasher has just been installed or there has been some plumbing work done in the sink cabinet. Please check the shut off valve for the water going to the dishwasher. it is connected to the hot water pipe in side on the sink cabinet. if the shut off valve is already turned all the way to the right it is in the closed position. This would mean the water is off. turn the valve to the left to turn the water on.This is very common after new counter tops are installed.Please also check water line going to the dishwasher to be sure it is not pinched
Hope this helps

Hello, I recently installed a new faucet in our kitchen, hence turning the water. Not aware that my wife tried to wash dishes in the dishwasher before i turned the water back on, i think she damaged our...

Without a brand and model number, here is my best thoughts on what to check;
1) Was the shut off valve for water going to the dishwasher turned on after new faucet install? Is it turned on now?
2) Is water getting to the dishwasher water inlet control valve?
3) If water is getting to the water inlet control valve, unplug the dishwasher and check the solenoid to see if it is shorted. Unplug the solenoid. Using an ohm meter, check for 500-1000 ohms resistance. If there is no resistance, it is most likely shorted and needs to be replaced.

It wont turn on, brand new.

Hmm!! seems a little bit silly but did you ring the installer?.

If it was done yesterday they have a duty to support the installation be it major or minor

And it should be free
