#212909 LG Dishwasher - LD-12AW2 Door leak

Posted by jpk on 30 October 2011 - 07:03 PM

Hi all, It's fixed ... although I'm not entirely sure which item in the final sequence of events was the solution. Here is what was done, I'd be interested in others thoughts.

1/ As per Samanera's suggestion (thanks for your time btw), I pulled all the spray arms out and gave them a clean. Each of the 3 arms had blockages. Probably about two in each of them, with ceramic, and bits and pieces of associated debris.

2/ We pulled the drain pump out to check for blockages

3/ Whilst the drain pump was out we pulled the pressure switch that was connected to this area out and apart. The diaphragm was fine, and we couldn't see any issues.

4/ Before reinstalling the pump and pressure switch, I blew out the pressure switch line, and quite a bit of greasy gunk came out (blocked and not switching perhaps?)

5/ Pump and pressure switch were then reinstalled.

6/ Test ran without the spray arms, and the washer ran with the water level notably lower than previous, and didn't even make it up to the spill / dam seal in the front of the door (i.e. no leak)

8/ Replaced all of the spray arms, and ran again, the water level was even lower with these in place.

Fixed ..... was it most likely the blocked spray arms, or a pressure switch blockage?

Thanks.

Sorry, Samanera should have read "Certified Tech Group 51", read my own title in the post above the last one ..... doh!
