LG Dishwasher water fills and drains at the same time
« on: December 28, 2015, 12:19:50 PM »
Hi I have a LG dishwasher LDF7811ST. The wash cycle starts and I hear water filling in the tub but soon it starts to drain and after that washing start but there is not enough water in the tub to wash the dishes and dishwasher ultimately gives error 31.

I tried to diagnose using the "Test Mode" and when time delay button is pressed for 4th time to do the water valve test, the display shows "34" and water fills in but the counter doesn't stop until it reaches 800, while drain pump kicked in around 150. All other tests were fine.

x4 - runs to 800 not stopping at 295 (Inlet Valve)

What should I do next to find out what exactly is the problem with Inlet valve and how do I fix it?

thanks very much

Maytag Dishwasher slowly fills with water while off (not running).
