Having problems with your LG LDF6920ST Stainless Steel 24 in. Built-in Dishwasher ?

We installed an LG dishwasher (LDF6920ST) a couple months ago. It has a horrible odor (stagnant water). Everything is hooked up according to the installation instructions. Draining problem? There is no water in the washer itself. Where would it be and how do we fix it?


Answers :

Check that the drain hose end (connected to a garbage disposal?) is not plugged or connected to a slow/plugged drain.

Then run an empty load and start up the dishwasher and wait until the water has finished flowing in. Then open the door and add one cup of vinegar. Allow that cycle to drain and repeat one more time, adding the vinegar _after_ the rinse water has finished being added.

If problems return, use a phillips screwdriver to remove the approximately 9 screws that hold the lower strainer assembly. You will first need to remove the lower spray arm. Inspect with a flashlight looking for any debris in that sump area.

Hi! We just installed our LG LDF8812WW built in dishwasher. We ran our first cycle and after the wash cycle the dishwasher displayed error code OE. I read that it meant there is a problem with the drainage, and to check the hose if it is kinked. Well, the hose is not kinked and we have no idea why it would have a problem with the draining. We have the hose set up per the installation instructions. How can we check to for something clogged? Any suggestions?


I actually own an LG LDF8812 myself, except mine is stainless steel, not white. So be it. :-)\015\012\015\012Anyway, it sounds like you have just unboxed the unit and it is brand new, not just new to you. I am also ... LG LDF8812 Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

It went thru the whole cycle and when I opened it up - there was water still left in the bottom - hit the cancel/drain button and nothing happened. Unhooked the drain line to the drain pipe under the sink and no water came out. How do I find out if it is the pump ? If I take it out - what do I need to look for and what trouble shoot things do I need to know. I live about one hour from the nearest town - so I would like to find out the problem - before I call a repairman and maybe fix it myse

Dish washer does not drain after the cycle is complete. The last few months when the dishwasher is done their would be a small amount of water left in the bottom.

The water was dirty and when you run the drain cycle it didnt drain. She said the dishes were clean. So i cleaned the vent, and filled the sink with

I have a Bosch dish washer model SHX 43 M 0 ZUC / 48 FD 8709 00169 The dish washer is about 1 1/4 years old and was installed by a plumber as part of a Home Depot kitchen remodel. The problem is draining. The quick wash does not drain at the end of the wash. The regular wash sometimes drain and sometimes does not. The auto wash does drain.

I have a whirlpool gold model GU1500 diswasher.

Cloudy Dishes This condition suddenly started after couple of years. Water heater is 7 yrs old, never drained, therefore I think this could be the problem. I am going to drain it and report. I do have a whole-house water filter which I change out monthly or every other month. My guess is that without it, this problem would have surfaced long ago.

I have a Viking dishwasher made by Asko. It is less than 6 months old. Today I had a problem with my disposal (water not draining through it and leaking under the sink) and ran the dishwasher, which cleaned/dried the dishes fine. BUT, since the water was not properly draining from the disposal, apparently the dishwasher was not draining properly either. A repairman came to fix the disposal before I knew about the dishwasher issue. Now, the dishwasher won't turn off "draining mode" - button pu

Drain problems I have a Kenmore 665.17292992 portable dishwasher. I've changed the filter and the seals however it still does not want to drain. It will drain but extremely slowly and since it's on a timer, it only drains maybe 10% of the water out. My next step was/is going to be the Check Valve... but I am at a loss right now. I thought for sure it would be the filter. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks, PM

Hello, I have a problem with our Miele G646SC Plus dishwasher. It starts its cycle OK, draining out any residual water, taking in fresh water and doing the initial rinse. After about 5 minutes it then stops with the "inlet/drain" red light flashing. The detergent is still in the holder and the water is still cold. The filter at the bottom of the compartment is clean, the drain pump spins freely. I've also checked for any leaks in the bottom of the machine that would trip the styrofoam/microsw

Hello, I had a problem with my Bosch dishwasher not washing properly. I have fixed burnt out wires, replaced the water inlet valve, AND tested with a new control module. Nothing is helping. When I start the cycle, it completes the initial drain and water does flow into the unit for about a minute, maybe a minute and a half. I can hear the clicking of cycle changes but it is not washing. Eventually it will drain the inch or so of water in the bottom, but it never washes. Any help???
