Dishwasher Repair / Re: LG Dishwasher not so hot
« Last post by john63 on October 21, 2014, 11:36:25 PM »
The AJH31248604 Sump Assy is the part number to order for your dishwasher.

When installing it---the only differences will be:

1) The plug for the TURBIDITY SENSOR does not reach the sensor on the replacement Sump Assy
Unless the black electrical tape is removed to allow additional "reach" for the relocated Turbidity Sensor.
However---it's well known to those intimately familiar with LG dishwashers built from 2004 through 2012---that leaving the Turbidity Sensor ***unplugged*** will allow for better/more consistent cleaning results.
No error code will be displayed---by leaving the Turbidity Sensor unplugged.

2) The two Sump Assy mounting tabs have been re-designed and cannot be used on newer Sump Assys.
Simply break off the plastic "ears" on both sides of the tabs to allow re-use.
If this is a problem for you---I can provide the part number for the newer-type mounting tabs ( I always re-use the originals).

**********

 <<< So these newer parts are now turbo charged (exaggerated) and should see an improvement on cleaning? Other half often complains of dishes not being spotless, so I hope this upgrade will be worth it. >>>

**********

It'll make a major difference in the dishwasher washing/cleaning results.

The GUIDE ASSY has been improved/re-designed to eliminate a *very* random leak-at-the-door complaint
As well as random noise that can begin an hour into the cycle---and remains noisy until the cycle ends.

**********

<<< Have read about techs showing up and asking "why did you buy an LG?" >>>

**********

When a "tech" says that---this is the Translation:

"My God---you've bought an LG!"
"I'm absolutely terrified---because I cannot diagnose one of those---let alone repair one."

It's usually followed by...

"I can never get parts for those"
"They're junk"

Finally---make an effort to use a RINSE AID (fill hole is located on the Detergent Dispenser Housing)

Since your dishwasher (like many others)---does NOT use the heating Element during the DRY CYCLE...

Using Rinse Aid---changes the *surface tension* of the water (in the dishwasher)

Very simply---it prevents/stops "clingability" of water

If you've not been using Rinse Aid---here's what happens...

After the FINAL RINSE cycle ends---and the last of the water is being drained out...

Small droplets of water will "hang" on the stainless steel "roof" of the dishwasher...

On the upper rack---and all items within it...

On the lower rack---and all items within it

On the silverware basket---etc...

Hundreds of droplets of water remain behind---when the last of the rinse water has drained---and the DRY CYCLE begins

Using RINSE AID prevents this (droplets)

The result is a much more effective/consistent---drying performance.

I thought you were asking me if I had light in the drum, and I don't. I do have 120v on both black and red wires on the main cord.  And that is with the negative meter probe on the white wire. Is there a better way to test neutral?
You should have 220v/240v AC between Black & Red Wires on Power Cord connected to back of dryer.
Red (Hot) & White (Neutral) is 120v AC and Black (Hot) & White (Neutral) is 120v AC.
If not, then unplug dryer and go to your main breaker box (outside of house by your meter) and flip the 30A switch On/Off 3 times then plug in dryer and see if it works.

Service Repair Manual at link below (see Page 6 #1 Won't Start or Run).
The Lamp should read between 80-100 Ohm's (see Page 8 of Service Manual).

I've already installed a rear drum bearing kit and it's thoroughly lubricated with the high temp grease supplied in the kit.

I've also replaced the upper and lower felt seals.

I also was looking at other manuals for Samsung dryers and they said I should have 12v  at sub pcb. But that was for another similar model
