My 2-year-old LG Dishwasher doesn't clean the dishes well any more. It used to work great, I was very happy with it. For some unknown reason it doesn't work that way any more. The dishes come out dirtier then they were before I put them in. I had three guys come in and look at it and they all said that there is nothing wrong with my dishwasher.

LG model LDS5811WW/02 has never cleaned the dishes since first installation. Put clean dishes in and they will come out dirty too! Have tried all dishwasher soap types and brands and drying agents. Always scrape and rinse dishes prior to loading. Dishes loaded various ways but problem remains. Repairman says unit is working fine. Also never dries dishes completely. Often leaves soap dispenser completely or partially filled. We are on a farm and have hard water but we have a softener/iron remover


If the soap/detergent isn't completely rinsing out of dispenser, it sounds like water isn't directed the top spray-arm. possible a defective vario motor; as it directs water to the water channel that supplies water to the middle and upper spray arms. ...

We live on an island in the Caribbean and we have a LG dishwasher (model LDF 8812) that has worked fine for a year, but has recently stopped washing effectively. At first, the top part dishes were coming out still soiled from food. Now the bottom part dishes are coming out soiled as well. We checked both the Owner's Manual and the Service Manual and none of the troubleshooting suggestions appear to be relevant to our problem.

White Residue Yes...we have the same problem as well with the residue as was mentioned by several others. I guess our dishwasher is still under warranty since it is only 11 months old. It can be serviced if it is a defect or part malfunction but otherwise I may end up with a service bill. That would add to the ongoing frustrations we have with this appliance. Right now we call it our dish dirtier! We put fairy clean rinsed dishes in and....voila....out comes dirty dishes covered in white gr

Bosch Dishwasher I currently own a Bosch dishwasher. One of the selling points, if I'm remembering right, of the dishwasher was it was supposed to super heat the hot water that is coming in from the tap. I have 3 problems. We have to rinse the dishes by hand before putting them in the dishwasher, Otherwise they won't come out clean. The dishwasher will run for four hours sometimes longer. It doesn't seem like it is heating the water any hotter than what comes out of the tap.

2 weeks ago, I had a plumber come and put in a new garbage diposer and since then somewhat old/dirty water seems to be sitting at the bottom after all cycles are done. I calle dhim back and he says that there is no problem in the plumbing but more with the pump. I even use the wt/dry vac and removed water and ran it but still comes back with water at the bottom. also the dishes smell like soap. Help!!!
