Having problems with your LG LDF6810ST Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher ?

Drying problem Hi Our 3-day old LG dishwasher is not able to dry our dishes. After the cycle is finished 2 hours later, I open the door to find that water is everywhere. As if the washer is skipping the dry sequence completely. The "vent" on the inside of the door doesn't seem to have an outlet--why is this a vent if nothing can escape? The owner's manual says to use a rinse aid to help drying. I don't believe in using band-aid's; something else is wrong. Any help/advice is appreciated. Thanks,

Hi,\015\012
\015\012As I had the same problem, I worked on my machine and found out the heater unit was not working (it is a brand new machine ! - remark : as I moved overseas, LG did not cover it with their warranty).\015\012
\015\012But back to what I did : I ran the check program (instructions can be found in the Service Manual) and verified it was sending voltage to the heater on step 36. So I checked the heater unit (in the bottom of the machine) and found it was burned or open. So I ordered a new heater assembly ($40 on eBay), replaced it myself and am completely happy with the results.\015\012
\015\012Remarks : the heater is powerful enough to heat cold water to the temperatures required (I don't have hot water in the faucet); it seems that the heater also produces heat for the drying cycle (my dishes were completely wet at the end of the cycle before, now they get completely dry). My only disappointment, mentioned by some in the forum, is that the outlet during the drying cycle is in the bottom of the door, so steam condensates into droplets on the kitchen floor. But now I get clean dishes, and this machine is amazingly silent and efficient. Good luck to you !
Hi Motrsport,
\015\012
\015\012I have the exact same problem with a new LDF6810ST. But it took me a month to realize.
\015\012
\015\012The vent in the door DOES have an outlet. It has both a valve and an active fan to drive dry air in and moist air out - through vertical ducts to the left in the door assy. You can actually see the rubber cap of the valve through the vent grill in the door and weakly hear the fan when it runs, approx. last 30 min. of cycle.
\015\012
\015\012Now I have had the unit serviced twice through LGE, the tech found that the motherboard in the board was not turning on the heater in step 36 (service mode). I am now awaiting a replacement of the motherboard and the heater by local LGE rep.
\015\012
\015\012So call LGE for service while you are still under warranty. You should not accept soaking wet end of cycle.
\015\012
\015\012Good luck!

I have a 1999 bosch SHU 4300 dishwasher given to me. It worked great for about two weeks. Now it takes for ever *3-4 hours* to complete a cycle (if it does). I have opened the door to see it filled with sudsy soap after this long. I have checked the hoses and they are not kinked. Once the cycle of cleaning is over, If I reset it manually, it will rinse the dishes and empty just fine. But I have to manually get the dishwasher to advance to the rinse and dry cycle every time now.

Hiting cancel twice will turn a small steady light on in the time window were the spining light normally is before a cycle starts, at which time closing the door will drain the dishwasher. Tried using the reset combos: hot wash, heat dry, hot wash, heat dry - all lights came on but nothing reset. Also tried same sequence doubling the heat dry. Unpluged for ten minutes, still nothing.

I know it drains properly (i hear it draining down the sink), and it attempts to dry (hot air). I also am using the rinse aid as specified in the manual. Any tips would help. thank you Andrew

Dishes and the dishwasher look dirty after they run, like it redistributed dirty water. The door is very dirty/filmy except right under the soap dispenser, like someone squirted dirty water on it but wiped right under the soap dispenser. If I run it a second time with vinegar it gets clean, but that is crazy, esp since it takes 2 1/2 hours a load. I have 2 of them and both are doing it. I have changed soaps, added more soap, used less soap, pre-rinsed dishes, put them in filthy, used jet-dry, no

My Maytag Quiet Series 300 is not cleaning my dishes very well at all. My glasses always have grit left in them (even with Jet Dry), my coffee mugs have film left in the bottom of them and now even my plates and bowls aren't getting clean. I don't even put my pots or pans in there, so I'm not sure where the grit is even coming from. We have city water and I use a powder to clean with. Also, there has always been a film of dirt that never seems to get rinsed away right where the door opens. Also,

My dishwasher seems to go through the cleaning process fine, but then I think it skips the rinsing off process and goes straight to the drying process. All the dishes and the inside of the washer have the soap that has been dryed and baked onto it from the drying process. I have used the same soap and the same amount for over 1 yr. The last 3 washes in a row seemed to skip the rinsing part. I have a maytag MDB7851AW
