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

Poor drying, mold building up in the tub. The condensing drying system is not working well. I pulled the unit out and removed a panel on the left side (facing washer). Saw that the plastic box that appears to be set up for moist air removal and vents to the tub had considerable mold in it at the top of one of the passage ways. Looked like it might be blocking air flow. Could this be a cause of poor drying? Can this unit be removed and cleaned? Also soap isn't dissolving. Bad board controllin

Hi.

Poor drying is often caused by a faulty moisture sensor. If there is mold covering the sensor housing , that can be cause for the problem.

Regarding the door detergent drawer problem, that is often caused by a defective door latch switch, rather than by a defective timer board. If machine is cycling timer is OK.

Here schematics and parts breakdown.

The detergent drawer lock is tested reading Ohms between the contact at the door switch and the timer board. This will tell you if the circuit is open or closed.

I am looking for a manual to remove the bottom sprayer on a Maytag DWC 8240 AAW dishwasher. This is a portable unit that has chipped the crockery since we bought it. Now during only the drying phase there is a grinding noise that sounds like the glass chips are being ground up. There are some screws that I can remove to find what I think is the filter. How do I get to the filter?And where can I find an exploded parts diagram? Thanks

Engine does not start. I ran it about two weeks ago and it worked fine. I took the spark plug out and it was dry. I made sure there was gas in it. I tried some starting fluid by spraying into air intake and it start running for a short time until the starting fluid ran out. I removed the carb bowl and there was gas in it. However the inside of the bowl and the float had brown deposits and looks like rust. So I think the main jet has been clogged up with a particle. How do I clear it? Where do I

Model WDB212RBMO (1994) is leaking where the water comes into a plastic piece on the side. It connects through to the inside.The piece is molded to the unit and has a hole in the side that looks like it was designed that way. No idea why. But this is where the water comes out while it's filling the tub.

How to diagnose? My Kenmore won't run. First it was flashing the clean light 7 times, so I figured out how to reset ("High Temp Scrub"/"Air Dry"/"High Temp Scrub"/"Air Dry"), but when I try to run a wash, it sounds like it's not getting water into the tub. When I checked it several minutes later, it was in "Cancel" mode, making a sound like it was draining (or trying to drain), then the clean light started flashing 7 times again. Clearly, the machine has something wrong but I don't know where to

Sears dishwasher 665.15882000 part #8268296 fell off and I can't find the "screw" that holds it in place...probably went down the drain. Now dishes do not "dry" on air dry. The part that matches the number for replacement parts does not look at all like the one that fell off. The one I have is round and the replacement one showing looks like some funky ninja weapon. Will this work on my machine? How easy is it to replace this part?

My accusense light keeps coming on and blinks continuously. I tried the heat-dry, normal sequence and it would reset to 2 minutes. After the 2 minutes cycle, the accusensor blinking would begin again. Then I tried holding the heat-dry button in for 5-seconds. This looked like it worked so we set a normal cycle without heat-dry. Äll looked good, but a few minutes in, the normal light was off, the accusensor was blinking again and the heated-dry was on again! Is the unit possessed? Other id

I recently bought a different type of dishwashing detergent for my Frigidare dishwasher and my dishes look as if they have not been rinsed. They cycled all the way through the drying cycle so the detergent dried on and was difficult to remove. I would like some advice on whether this sounds like a detergent problem or mechanical problem before I try another load. This washer is not new. It was in the house I bought and I've only been using it for about 2 months. (I usually use Casade Liquid and

I have been negligent in not cleaning out the filters and after the unit more or less stopped, I pulled the two filters finding them full of what looked like soap scum. I cleaned them best I could (but noticed the inner filter still had most of the small holes blocked) Started the unit and it cleaned alright for a couple of days. Last night after running a load all the water did not empty from the bottom of the tub? Any suggestion on what wrong? Bought the unit on 1/19/05. Thanks

Whirlpool model GU2400XTPQ7 (Canada) plastic tub has discoloration from heat element......plastic directly under the element has dried out and cracked....it almost looks like it has been eaten away......now I have a leak! Virtually impossible to fix without replacing the entire plastic tub. Of course because the machine is four years old, the warranty has expired. Is this a common problem? Heard of this before?What now???

I own a GE Profile GSD 4330 dishwasher. Recently it has been leaving some water in the bottom of the tub. This water accumulates over time until the entire bottom is filled. I have checked the air vent, garbage disposal unit and the filter in the bottom of the dishwasher (which was filthy). I cleaned the filter and everything else looks okay, but it is still leaving some water in the tub.

SEARS/WHIRLPOOL DISHWASHER Model 665.16014401. The CLEAN light keeps blinking and washer will not run. Op. instructions say to check the heater circuit. Heater element tests at 12.9 Ohms and thermo unit at 55 K ohm and the unit I beleave looks like overtemp cut out is less than 1 ohm. these look like good #s to me so I suspect the controller p/n 8564544.

I removed an old dishwasher and replaced it with this GE 24" Profile GSD533ODO1WW unit. It seems to run through the cycles like it should but it doesn't seem to run any water for some reason. I hooked up a new water line to it and turned it on. There where no leaks that I could see. Is there any installation manual that you could send me to make sure that I didn't miss anything or is there anything that you can tell me that I should look for? Thanks, Jesse

Honda GC190 no start. Unit has been sitting for 2 years. Drained old gas, cleaned the carb. No go. New plug gapped to 0.030in. Still nothing. spark seems good. Cleaned the fuel strainer and there IS a bit of vacuum at the fuel pump when cranking. Poured a dab of gas into combustion chamber.. Still won't "talk to me" AT ALL. Removed valve cover and checked the valves.. within specs and nothing sticking or hanging up. Timing belt and cam looks good. Took a peak at the coil.. air gap in specs. 1ohm

Kenmore model#587(Frigidaire) leaks under door. New install. Had machine for a year plus before install. took off front panel- can see water squirting past lower door gasket as wash arms rotate. cause is water running down door during wash cycle piles up in the channels molded into the lower left & right side of the wash tub and pushes out the sides of the lower gasket. looks like a design issue- called SEARS, they just want to sell me a new gasket! go figure. any ideas on a fix?

My Maytag Quiet Series 300 (Model #MDBTT79AWW) leaks about cup of water a minute. I've removed everything from inside the dishwasher.

I have a General Electric Potscrubber dishwasher. When the cycle is finished, the water does not drain into the sink.I turned the unit upside down to look into the bottom. The motor turns freely. The instruction sheet I found in the bottom of the unit said to remove the filter screen and check the piston valve. I looked at what I thought was the piston valve, but I'm not sure how to check it. The line to the sink seems to be clear. The model of my unit is GSC3230Z03WW. The serial number is AZ627

I have a 7 hp B&G craftsman Pressure washer , if I place an air filter on it ,it wound't start or run , if I remove the air filter it would run like a champ, but after 10 mints , oil would shoot out off the carb like a running faucet , why is it not running with the filter on,.Now am not so sure if the air filter is the correct size , because when I put it on it seem to be a bit on the taller size rather than a perfect fit, thanks for your help , in Hollywood , Reinaldo Roman .

I have a Husky gasoline pressure washer. The honda motor starts but stalls because the pressure by-pass (not the right term) doesn't seem to open and builds up pressure. I haven't tried to remove any parts yet. I think grit has got in but don't know for sure. The pump looks pretty simple and the part I want to remove for cleaning looks like a plastic hexagon nob. Will this access the by-pass or is it something else.
