LG DW LDF9810ST No Power

15 posts in this topic

I have an LG Dishwasher.  Model # LDF9810ST with no display.  No response to any selections on keypad.  I have power to the main PCB.

There is a display/touch pad PCB that plugs into that.  What is the best (or any) way to tell which componant is at fault.

 

Thanks!

Have you checked the door switches for continuity with your meter?

 

Also, take the outer door panel off and check for broken wires embedded into the tar like insulation in the stainless steel door liner.

Thanks,

 

Door switch and wiring are good.  I am familiar with the ones that develop the broken at the door panel.  This is a newer model. Prob 2 years.

Sent a service request ticket to LG on there website.  Below is there response.  "not a real sure way to to check for a bad display, If you have power into main
bd I would replace the main, that is usually the cause"

 

I will try and let you know.

NOTICE!

 

The following post is NOT to be construed as an attempt to educate or teach fellow technicians and DIYers---on troubleshooting an LG dishwasher!

 

If you're offended at having an LG trained tech explain how to diagnose & repair problems/faults with LG dishwashers---leave this site IMMEDIATELY!

 

<sorry couldn't resist/private joke>

 

****************************************************************************************************************************

 

<<<I have an LG Dishwasher.  Model # LDF9810ST with no display.  No response to any selections on keypad.  I have power to the main PCB.>>>

 

***********************************

 

On the MAIN BOARD---there's a large *yellow plug*.

 

Pull off this plug and check for 120 volts in the *plug*---if present---replace the MAIN BOARD.

 

LDF9810 models built **before** August 2007----->Main Board EBR38144401 (Serial Number range 806KW and lower)

 

LDF9810 models built **after** August 2007-------->Main Board EBR38144406 (Serial Number range 807KW and higher)

 

 

If there's NO power at the *yellow* plug...

 

Pull the *pink* plug off the NOISE FILTER and check for 120 volts in the *pink* receptacle on the Noise Filter (not the pink plug).

 

If no power--replace the noise filter.

Finally have an update for this problem.  I installed the main pcb part # EBR38144406.   Did not solve problem.  I ordered and installed display pcb part # EBR38145001.  This resolved the problem. 

This call was a call for extended warr provider.  Assurant Group.  So I was able to get an auth to replace and get paid for both parts.  I hate to shotgun repairs like this but this seems to happen more and more.

 

Question:  How would you handle this if it was a COD customer?  I obv can't return the first part.  I can"t charge the customer.  The first part didn't fix the problem.   Also had to wait like 14 days for each part. No stock. 

I know some servicers would just "shotgun" from the begining and replace both parts but that can add up to the customer just replaceing the dishwasher...  Frustrating...

Ezzacly!  This is why I order all my electronics boards and more delicate parts from RepairClinic.  I guarantee the repair for a year and I need to know that I can return that board if it fails during that time.  I've also had it where a board failed immediately on installation due to another problem in the machine that I didn't catch (my bad) and RepairClinic took the board back with zero hassle, no interrogation, just done.  I've also had it where a thermostat failed right out of the box (quirk) and they just sent me another one, didn't even want to the old one back.  They're excellent to deal with.

From now on, when in doubt I am going to order from Repair Clinic for Controls like the Samurai suggests. Sage Advise.

a ***rare*** failure.

If under LG warranty---LG will "eat" it.

 

If out-of-warranty---I "eat" it and move on...

Can be a problem---depending on supplier.

 

LG shows in stock (48 hrs delivery)

<<<I know some servicers would just "shotgun" from the begining and replace both parts>>>

 

***************

 

There are 3 boards

 

Main Board

 

Sub/Board (includes on/off button)

 

Sub/Board (includes cycle selections)

 

In most cases---a "No Power" complaint is caused by a failed Main Board.

 

You'll likely NEVER AGAIN have another board failure of this type again for 10 years.

Hey guys, 

 

Thanks for the feedback.  Reg & Samuria...  Do you have a wholesale account with Repair Clinic?  Or are they just retail?  I use the site to look up part # right now when I need to see a pic of the part to make sure I'm ordering the right one.  Thats a nice feature.  Have not ordered from them though.  I try to stay loyal to my supplier.  He treats me good with next day shipping no charge, good stock and prices.  But they will not take elect parts back that have been installed.

 

Much Appreciated.

Just simply creating an account with Repair Clinic. i.e. email address and password - gives a me 15% discount. I've found that with electronics their prices are very competive with Marcone and other wholesale suppliers. It's also comforting to know you can return any board or electronics that are bad or didn't fix your repair no questions asked. I'd price shop any electronics your are looking for and compare with Repair Clinic vs. wholesale supplieers. I'll think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

What does "local" really mean any more in this age of the internet?  I mean, can you get any more local than right here on your computer screen?  The interactions and help here are just as real as any you'd have in the brick n' mortar world... except you don't have to smell my beer breath.   :pint1:
