Having problems with your LG 24 in. LDS 5811 Built-in Dishwasher ?

My LDS 5811 LG dishwasher is leaking at bottom left corner of door. I have read a few solutions talking about a retrofit kit to not only fix this problem, but also improve the dishwashers drying function.

Hi,
\015\012I have checked those out and it seems that someone was talking out a line there... there is absolutly no other documentation to back up his claims... at least none that I could find...
\015\012
\015\012That being said.. those LG dishwashers do seem to have a problem with leaking....I have fixed them by replacing the door seal...it takes all of about ten minutes to do and it's easy...
\015\012I think that it is a very poor design... but what do I know.. I only fix them...
\015\012
\015\012Get your self a new door seal and you'll be good for a while again...the only other thing you can try would be to call LG and see what they will do for you...but.. good luck with that...

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


Not sure what you mean by a "del" level, but as far a drying issues:\015\012\015\012LG chose to use a very energy efficient drying method which relies on the residual heat of the dishes to help dry them rather than many manufacturer ... LG LDF6810 Built-in Dishwasher

Water remains in the bottom of the diswasher after the cleaning cycle has completed. We recently had a new kitchen faucet and garbage disposal installed. The dishwasher also hums during the dry cycle, I never noticed this before. Are these problems related? Do I need to get a repairman out here to fix the problem or can I do it myself? Thanks, Robin Pomazal Naperville, IL

Dishwasher My dishwasher is accumulating water on the floor of it and not being drained out. What do I need to do to fix this problem? Also, what is the average time for a brand new dryer to dry clothes? Any suggestions are appreciated.

Leaking dishwasher There is standing water in the dishwasher when it's not being used. Recently we had a garbage disposal installed and was wondering whether this may cause the water from the sink to settle in the dishwasher. Also, the water rises and leaks on the floor. We have to run a wash cycle to drain and dry out the dishwasher. What do you think the problem is?

I have a KitchenAid drawer dishwasher model kudd01dppa and it has a mind of its own starting and stopping in the middle of the night/day and chiming all different beeps and sounds like its computer is glitching out. We had a service person out and they changed the main computer board and it seemed to fix it for a few days then started again. They gave up. They also tried some sort of reset or reboot but nothing has fixed this intermitten but long term problem. Any ideas?

I have a kitchen aid dishwasher model number KUD101TJBLO. I have had the thermal fuse replaced numerous times. It may run two weeks ir it may rub two cycles then the fuse blows. My serviceman has given up on finding a solution.He has replaced the control board and the door switch. However it continues blowing the fuse. I read on the internet that you need to replace the entire wiring kit that comes with the fuse but my repairman says this will not fix the problem and refused to replace the kit.

My wife opened door during cycle. When she closed door it would no longer run. Looking at problems and recomendations on similar models, I replaced the board. Did not fix the problem. I have checked the fuse and the door switches for continuity and all seem ok. The only lights on the panel that come on are: under cycle- Pots & Pans, Light. Under Options - Heated dry. No other lights work and the dishwasher does not operate.

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

GU1500XTLS3 Periodically won't start. Dishwasher has power because pressing cancel causes dishwasher to start draining (even though there is no water). Door switch works because opening door prevents starting drain cycle. No other button on control panel will work except for the 'air dry' / 'lockout' button. Turning off circuit breaker for 15-30 minutes and then turning circuit breaker back on seems to fix the problems but only for a couple uses and then it stops working again. Need ad

My Brandt VF300 dishwasher is not draining properly. If I empty the residual water (by hand) I can still use it but the water still remains in the bottom at the end of each cycle. How can I fix this? It's driving me nuts! Also the door is not functioning properly something has broken that supports the weight of the door. It can only be shut completely or open completely! Is there a part that can be bought to fix this?
