Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

I have a LG LD-14AW2 dishwasher, today I set it to run and came in and although the lights were still lit up the tome was not moving, I turned the unit off and waited a while then turned it back on. The power turns on and I set the type of wash but when I press start it beeps twice and won't start. Can you help, I have had nothing but trouble with this dishwasher since it was installed!

Every time I went to\015\012start the dishwasher it went "Ding Ding". I could press every button,\015\012turn it on and off OK, change cycles etc. I guessed the sound maybe because it\015\012thought the door was open, so set to work pulling it apart. This is how I fixed\015\012it.
\015\012
\015\012Make sure you do most of this with the power off - there is probably mains\015\012voltage inside!
\015\012
\015\012After pulling off the the cover of the door (with the door open, undo about a\015\012dozen screws), the front will fall off if you don't hold on to it, and the door\015\012swing closed, so be careful. When it has detached, move the metal part aside,\015\012and place the "brains" (circuit board etc) on to a chair or similar\015\012so the wires don't stretch.
\015\012
\015\012A quick way to see if you have the problem is the same as mine is to remove the\015\012orange cable from the PCB as per below:
\015\012\015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012\015\012 \015\0125ed7133.jpg
\015\012
\015\012Turn the power back on, and press the power button, then the play button,\015\012things will hopefully work. If they do, turn it off right away and continue as\015\012per below to fix. If you are not worried about the safety mechanism - you could\015\012just leave it off and put things back together. However if you forget I think\015\012the entire kitchen could get very wet!
\015\012
\015\012Reconnect the orange cable, and start by removing the handle. You will need to\015\012disconnect the cable block going in to the back of the handle mechanism, and\015\012remove the 3 screws as shown:
\015\012\015\012 \015\012a89a7ae.jpg
\015\012
\015\012Once you have the handle off, remove the metal cover. I found I had to slide it\015\012down at an angle and back, ie:
\015\012\015\012 \015\012e4825a2.jpg
\015\012
\015\012With that off, you should then be able to carefully edge out the reed switch -\015\012this is the source of the problem. In the image below the arrow point to TWO\015\012hooks that need to be released as you slide it out. I found that the hooks got\015\012stuck on the seam as well, so go slowly.
\015\012\015\012 \015\0121422763.jpg
\015\012
\015\012Once you have the reed switch out, you can see if the local electronics shop\015\012has one the same (probably the best long term fix), or if you pry it apart, I\015\012lightly scraped the contacts inside it:
\015\012\015\012 \015\01215b9270.jpg
\015\012
\015\012Once this was done, I could put the handle back together and test (I tested\015\012before putting the whole front back on). With a screw driver you can put the\015\012mechanism back to "close" the door, and things should hopefully work.\015\012Or to "open" the door, pull the handle, and use the screw driver to\015\012pull it the rest of the way, ie:
\015\012\015\012 \015\012f93a689.jpg
\015\012
\015\012Once you are happy it is all working, put everything back together and things\015\012should hopefully be away!

I pressed the POWER button to turn on the dishwasher. I pressed the SELECT button, hit HEATED DRY button and the LIGHT WASH buttons. I then hit the START/PAUSE button to start the cycle. All lights came on as normal & I heard the machine trying to **** up water like it normally does. Within 5 minutes or so, the machine started to BEEP & BEEP every minute. When I came to the check why the beeping noise was on, I saw that all the WASH PROGRAM lights were all blinking. I hit the START/PAUSE

The Dishwasher PLD2850RDC2 will not start. The CL flashes, the type of cycle pressed on the key pad does respond, but nothing happens when START is pressed. Steps taken: -Door is clicked shut -Power breaker has been turned off and back on -All dishwasher moving parts have been moved by hand to ensure no obstructions are in the way. Best guess is the key pad is just non responsive. I hope there is an easy solution. Thank you.

Symptoms are : - You can turn machine on, select a program, press start button, close door, machine appears to begin cycle as normal, water seems to load, then 2 minutes later drains, and 1 minute or so after that the machine beeps 3 times to indicate cycle is finished.
