LG LDF8812 Diswasher - Self Cleaning Filter not cleaning itself

\015 I have had this diswasher less then 9 months. It has worked well until rescently. Now is is leaving food and chalky residue on silveware, plates and glasses. We do not have a water softener, but we don't have very hard water (e.g. showerheads don't clog very fast.)\015\012\015\012I removed the brown disk-like (filter?) unit from the inside bottom of this LG 8812 DW. (Approx. 12 screws.) I can hold it in my hand and look through the fabric-like screens on the top. I can see some debris inside. But I can't figure out how to open it to clean it out. There are no more screws to remove and when I try to pry it open with a screwdriver, I leave a mark but no sign of it popping open.\015\012\015\0121.) Can anyone post a service manual for this DW? Hopefully, it will have an exploded view of the inside of this thing.\015\012\015\0122.) Please advice how to open this "self cleaning" filter.\015

Answers :

You should not have to use any type of screwdriver to remove filter. The rest of it , leave alone. Take both rotors out and run unit. Both rotors top and bottom should push water through at a good rate. If not, a blockage in water /motor line. I suspect the rotors simply need to be properly cleaned, If not rotating properly it will cause undesolved residue.

My dishwasher is a Profile Quiet Power II and is 8 years old. There is one person in my household, so it has not had a lot or wear. The issue is that the flatware and glasses do not come out clean. The flatware is often smudged and the glasses are cloudy. I have changed detergent several times and adjusted the settings and hot water. There is a self-cleaning filter. I am contemplating buying a new dishwasher but wonder if I would benefit from a service call.

My dishwasher spray arms were clogged with calcium buildup so I cleaned one and replaced the other. I also removed the fixed disc-shaped device underneath the lower spray arm and found the particle filter was clogged- so I cleaned it out. The dishwasher ran fine for a few times but then the filter clogged again, and again, and again. Now I need to make a routine of disassembling the parts to get at the filter every week because the filter no longer clears itself during the wash and/or emptying c
