Konichiwa, Master Samurai-san.
Lowly grasshoppah seek guidance with unruly LG dishwasher, model LDF6810ST.
It's the later model with the same electronics as the LDF6920ST.
Last summer I replaced the PCB and the heating element and thermistor. The PCB is the later 6871dd1006Q part number. The PCB probably didn't need replacing as the heater element was burned through, but it happened. Old PCB is Rev M. Been working fine with newer PCB, I use the Sanitary mode most of the time.
A few weeks ago, the washing cycle would terminate after entering the drying cycle with an HE error. The resistance of the element is 11.8 ohms, and thermistor is around 12k ohms which is normal. I found that you're supposed to replace the PCB when this error occurs, but I would think this Rev Q unit would have had the necessary upgrade. If I put the Rev M board back in it shows no HE code, but it just doesn't dry. In addition, the self-test codes on the Rev Q board seem to differ from what's published in the service manual.
I pressed Upper Only+Time Delay+Power to start the self test and I get 3H/UA cycling back and forth. Manual says I should see 3H/U2.
Pressing Time Delay once more I see 01/2 cycling. Manual says I should see 31.
All the rest of the tests appear normal except pushing Time Delay 9 times for Thermistor test gives me a code 30, manual says it should be showing 39.
I'm thinking the heating element is having issues. What say you, oh Master?
