Topic tags/keywords: dishwasher lemishine

I’m constantly surprised by the non-woodworking expertise of some lumberjocks, so perhaps somebody can help me out here:

We got this dishwasher about a year ago, brand new, LG, with stainless steel innards…within 6 months, we noticed that the rubber seals at the bottom inside seemed to be degrading, rotting, melting, something…We have been using Cascade Complete detergent, along with rinse aide, and also using a product called Lemishine, which is supposed to make things more sparkely and remove white deposits, which we have had problems with. I think the Lemishine has salt and citrus powder in it…but I’m not sure.

I can probalby get these seals replaced, but I don’t want the same thing to just happen again in a few months.

Any Ideas?

I would contact the company! Those seals should not have disintegrated that quickly. Did you read anything in the instruction manual about what not to put in the dishwasher?

Looks like a warranty issue to me too. Have you checked underneath to see if it’s leaking any water onto the floor?

“about a year ago, brand new”. They should be fixing it for free. Stand your ground.
