Having problems with your LG Dishwashers ?

Does a LG model LDF 6920st have anything way to heat to hot water

\015 Customer lives in large house and their hot water heater is quite a distance from dishwasher. She and my little lady thinks it has something in it to assist in heating the water coming in. I being a retired IBM customer engineer and repairing everything from tvs to my cars and motercycles say I don't think so. Only the heating element for drying the dishes after they are washed. Am I right?\015

Answers :

Dishwashers do have a water heater element. In fact, it's the same heater that is used for hot dry, but you can switch it off for the drying cycle if you want. Dishwashers heat the water so it will be hot enough to properly clean the dishes. Sorry, you lose the bet.

Maytag dishwasher model MDB7609AWW2 has a blinking clean light. I followed the advice on fixya (thankya!) and by alternating the normal and heated wash buttons I was able to return the lights to normal. However, once I tried to run a normal cycle, it didn't do anything other than fill and drain. I then ran the hot water faucet in the sink until hot and tried another new cycle, but no luck. Any advice is MUCH appreciated!

Kenmore Elite Stainless Steel 24 inch tall Model 66577963K701. The heating element works for "heated dry" but not for "Hi Temperature" wash. It used to do so and when I opened the door a nice blast of steam would come out. My hot water tank is a great distance from the washer so we usually run the hot water tap in the sink for a bit until hot water comes... but the heating coil no longer kicks in on any of the cycles (Smart Wash / Normal Wash ). The high limit switch works and as I said, th

Bosch dishwasher, Model SMU 7056, UC 09, FD 7309. My older unit has operated flawlessly for years. Two days ago it started to "stall" in one cycle and not progress to the next, e.g., stayed in the wash cycle and would not move on to rinse. In addition the heat generated in the machine was way below normal. A repairman told me that if the water doesn't get hot enough, the unit will not move on to the next cycle. I always use the "Regular Wash" option, but tried other options such as 'Economy

My kenmore dishwasher will run part way thru the wash cycle, stop and the hi temp and heat dry lights will flash back and forth and not do anything else. When you open the washer it will have water in it that has not pumper out. It seems that the light wash cycle will work after trying the regular or heavy wash. The washer is 1 1/2 years old. model # 587.15259402

We have a Whirlpool dish washer; model#: DU810SWPQ0. It starts, water goes in and it heats up but doesn't wash anything. The spiral jet sprayer doesn't do anything. It sounds like the motor just clicks but doesn't do anything either. Water is not draining at the end of cycle either.

I have had a repairman come out and look at this and he says all the diagnostic test say everything is okay. My problem: my dishes come out dripping wet...like it hasnt dried anything. Sometimes dishes are still dirty. I don't think there is any heat getting to anything. I run the water in the sink beforehand to try to get the water hot. I used this dishwasher for 1-1/2 years with no problems and now I have this problem. What is going on?

Leaking from under dishwasher. Has run great since 1996. Under counter model in manufactured home. Chnaged to drop in pellet dishwasher detergent and it ran great. There is no water inside the dishwasher circular drain. We never use the heating coil to dry the dishes. We have turned off the water supply line under the sink to the dishwasher. Cool clear water is running out from under the bottom right corner. The hot water heater is right next to it and everything is dry and warm under it which i

I have a haier dishwasher model WQP12 AFM, I've replaced the wash pump motor and drain pump (they had been damaged with water after last repair person didn't put widget around drain hose which split and water accumulated on bottom).

Have checked element with meter, thats fine, I replaced timersince it wasn't going through its cycle and that has not changed anything. Any suggustions?? Cheers

My GE Profile Performance dishwasher (GSD 4910) doesn't drain. I hear the pump working, and water draining into the sink (not a disposal) as it should, but water is left standing in the tub about as high as the heating element. I have taken it apart and removed a few small items stuck in the system in various places, but that didn't affect anything. I have read here and there about the piston and nut assembly, but I don't think my model has that -- or maybe it does? Can you affer a

I have a GE GSD2000J01WW Dishwasher in a building with low water pressure. The inlet hose is 3/8" OD. The heating coil gets too hot and gives off a bad odor as there is not enough water at start up. Is there a way or a replacement part that can be used to change the timing of the heater and wash cycles, etc.? Thanks

Fills with water, sounds like it starts to pump water then stops, then start again. It attempts to start pumping water 3 or 4 times them turns off leaving the water in the tub. I have read about the water needing to heat up for the cycle to advance. When I check the water that is left in the tub it is warm but not hot. The heating element is not hot either. I did a continuity test on the heating element and it seems to check out ok. I also did a continuity test on the red wire from the heating e

I have a Kenmore Quietguard Standard model 587 Dishwasher. It's about 3 years old. Lately, it has been running fine through the first hour and then towards the end, it will pause and the "Hi Temp" and "Heat Dry" like will start blinking at the same time. It's like it is stalled. When this happens, I open up the door and look at the bottom of the dishwasher were the screen is, and I see there is standing water. I press the "Start/Cancel" button to help it drain all the way, which it does, but th
