Having problems with your LG 24 in. LD-12BW5 Free-standing Dishwasher ?

It seems the pump has stopped working, there is a 2-3 litre amount of water in the bottom of the dishwasher. My wife put a jar in the dishwasher with a label on it. The label was washed off. I am guessing that this clogging the pump. Any ideas on how to fix this ??? (I was thinking a strong cleaner to dissolve the paper)


Answers :

A small label like that shouldn't be the problem the motor may have just burned out. if it still sprays then is a solenoid that changes the valve to pump out. If it doesn't spray you may have a more serious issue.

My dishwasher spray arms were clogged with calcium buildup so I cleaned one and replaced the other. I also removed the fixed disc-shaped device underneath the lower spray arm and found the particle filter was clogged- so I cleaned it out. The dishwasher ran fine for a few times but then the filter clogged again, and again, and again. Now I need to make a routine of disassembling the parts to get at the filter every week because the filter no longer clears itself during the wash and/or emptying c

I have a whirlpool GU2700XTSQ1 dishwasher. I have the typical top rack not cleaning problem. I have removed the rear washer tube that leads to the top sprayer, no clogs. Upper arm is clear, lower arm is clear. I also removed the lower cover, checked the chopper screen and inlet, no clogs. There is a screen inside that I cannot get to. It appears to have some sort of paper or cloth sticking through the screen with a 50% block. Perhaps a sticker or label from a dish. I see this screen when looking

Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher (Mod: 665.1373) makes bad noise after the tub fils and the pump starts running. (Not sure how to describe noise.) Bad pump? Other? I have checked for anything obstructing rotating parts and that is definitely not it. My guess is something wrong with the pump, but not sure. If so, I'm wondering what my options are. Like are their common problems with pumps that can be fixed at home? Replacement?


Definately sounds like a pump on its way out. Probably not the pump itself - but the starting capacitor.However it may be cheaper for you in the long run to have a professional out to diagnose the problem instead of throwing money into it blind ... Dishwashers

Whirlpool dishwasher part #3385181. Machine had gone thru wash cycle and was starting to dry. Smelled electrical burning smell, opened washer door and washer was filled with smoke. Turned everything off, cleared smoke, and the washer water dispenser is very hard to turn. Washer has symptoms of burnt up motor that turns water dispenser. Machine is 12 years old.

The top level is not getting clean. We think the passage to the top water jet is clogged. There are two holes in the back that the washing arm fits into, depending on what level the top rack is set at, and one of them is stuck open. We have not been happy with this dishwasher from the start and are trying to decide if we should get it fixed or just buy a new one.

Hi, my Ge profile dishwasher model pdw9280n00ss changes wash modes on it's own. This is a new problem, it was stuck on normal wash for the last year. It screwed up right after the warranty ran out. The start button and the heat all seem to work. I've seen it jump between the wash cycles on it's own while washing . Is it worth fixing, I feel ripped off on this expensive dishwasher!! Thx

Dishwasher I am getting a run around with getting my LG dishwasher fixed properly. We had a tech more than once come in and look at our dishwasher. It has not been fixed and never dried the dishes properly. It is now leaking and going to a "del" level when we attempt to wash the dishes. It is also leaking on our fairly new tiled floor and under our new kitchen cabinet. Your tech stated the dishwasher was not installed properly. The installation dept , Francine stated it is not their problem

We have a stainless Frigidaire Dishwasher model FD882040FC3 that is 2 years old. When we hit the "normal wash" button and then "start" button, as soon as the water is in and starts to wash, the dishwasher immediately stops and both "Hi-Temp Wash" and Air Dry" buttons begin flashing on and off. Any suggestions on how to fix this? Kind regards, Greg

Dishwasher problem It is a "classique" dishwasher , about 8 years old, but used only about 50 times max. The dishes are not getting out clean - the washing powder is smeared over them. Most of the dish washing powder (or tablet, tried it both) is not comming out of the powder compartment, despite the fact that we find the compartment open when the washing cycle is done. Sure it is just a "smal quick fix thing" but have not idea what it could be. Pleaseee help!

My bosh dishwasher SHX55M06UC/46 will not drain. A new disposal was put in and the dishwasher drain plug was not punched out and the dishwasher was ran that way. Now it just holds water in the bottom. I've tried resetting or canceling the wash cycle but that doesn't work and the washing cycle works fine. I'm hoping there is a reset or a safety for the pump if it gets clogged.
