\015\012The LF LDF6810 is a water conserving dishwasher that requires quality detergent. Buy a box of name brand powder (e.g. Electrosol pr Cascade) Do not use ultra-cheap, generic detergent and never use gel or tablets in any dishwasher.\015\012
\015\012If you still have cleaning problems problems, remove the lower wash arm and the 9 screws that hold the filter beneath the spray arm. \015\012
\015\012Pull the filter out and rinse thoroughly.\015\012
\015\012With a flashlight, inspect the sump area, removing all debris.\015\012
\015\012So try this before you go deeper. I have had the same problem with my LG 8812 and this solved my problem.

The detergent dispenser opens but the cascade packet does not fall out and dissolve. Even when I used granulated detergent, sometimes it was coagulated in the soap cup at the end of the cycle - not dissolved.

Our top rack is not getting cleaned at all-- although the rinser seems to spin freely when pushed, and fits correctly into the hole back. We were using powder detergent, and a little residue was always left in the compartment. So we tried liquid detergent, to see if it would help, and now it seems like almost none of the detergent is dissolving out, at all. The compartment's full and a goopy mess after each cycle. So now the bottom rack isn't very clean, either! Please advise. Thanks!

The dishwasher detergent is not dissolving. There is rinse aid in the dispenser - sometimes the door opens and the detergent comes out and sometimes it doesn't. If the detergent does come out then it is just sitting in the rack - should it drop to the bottom of the dishwasher? I have checked the door cleaned out around it to make sure the hook and release are working. I opened the door and the water is hot.

My Asko D1976 dishwasher is not cleaning dishes properly. There is a lot of clumped detergent left in the dispenser after wash cycles are complete, and many of the dishes have dried-on food left on them.
