Maintenance for LG dishwashers is not a pleasant task. It can be very frustrating when buttons on your LG dishwasher are not working and you have no water inside the machine to rinse items that need rinsing.

Faulty Touchpadfaulty touchpad

You should first check that the dishwasher display is working. This could be a faulty touchpad, but make sure you check the control panel display first.

If you notice that both displays are still working correctly, try pressing some of the touchpad buttons.

It is possible that the dishwasher’s touchpad needs to be replaced if some of the buttons no longer respond.

Some manufacturers sell them separately so make sure you do some research beforehand so you aren’t stuck having to replace everything if it turns out the touchpad isn’t the problem.

Defective Control Panel

The first thing you should do is ensure the display works. If your dishwasher display is working and you are having problems with a few buttons not responding correctly.

This would mean that the control panel and touchpad need to be replaced (depending on your manufacturer, some just sell the touchpad separately).

However, if you cannot replace the touchpad separately or have purchased it together with the control panel by any chance – it means both components would require replacement.

Replacing the main control board.

The main control board is the brain of a dishwasher – it is the part that allows your appliance to run and manage many electrical signals between all of its components.

If you have a problem with the main control board, then it’s likely that it will be unable to send voltage out to other parts of your dishwasher, such as your touchpad, and thus they will not function properly.

It is very common for people to misdiagnose their main control board when there are actually larger problems occurring in the exact part of their dishwasher connected directly to the board – so be sure to test these other faulty components before claiming a problem with the main control board.

Does the dishwasher have a reset button?

Sometimes the way to turn a dishwasher into a brand new appliance is as simple as pressing the Start/Reset button. Most dishwashers are equipped with this feature.

The delay between pressing it and getting clean dishes may vary depending on the model of appliance, so check your owner’s manual for accurate information pertaining to your device.
