LG dishwasher heater not heating.
« on: January 03, 2011, 03:59:58 PM »
Hello all. I have an LG LDS4821ST dishwasher that won't get the water up to its correct temperature, therefore not cleaning the dishes properly.

I have checked the heater, it has continuity, and I am getting the correct voltage to it as well. All the thermostats are in working order as well. I thought it was the board after checking everything else and I replaced that only to have it continue to not heat properly.

Any ideas?

Post the model number and we can be of more help. :)  If you (turn the power off first) take the front panel off of the door. The black sound damper material on the inside of the door holds the wires and the constant opening and closing can break the wires.  From what you have described this could be your problem, but the model number would help.

Sorry! Totally meant to leave the model! LDS4821ST is the model number.

I take it from your post there are no error codes?  Do you have the part number of the board you replaced, there are two boards available for this machine.  But only if you are getting the HE error code and your inlet water temp is very hot or very cold...

Alright, I'm back again, this time I have the part number of the board I replaced. It was EBR33469404, the main board.

I just checked the wires as well for a break in one of them, and there is no break. Everything is clean.

I am certainly confuzzled on this one! :P

You got the new board.  Is the water coming into the machine excessivly hot or cold (below 50 F or above 160 F)?
