The LG dishwasher has a CANCEL & DRAIN option. It drains the tub. It gets activated if you press the control panel buttons DELICATE + DUAL CONTROL and Spray + Half Load simultaneously.

But if the CANCEL & DRAIN option is not available in your LG dishwasher, the universal solution for draining is as follows:

  1. Start a dishwashing cycle.
  2. Let the dishwasher run for 45 seconds.
  3. Turn off the device.
  4. Then turn it on. The first 45 seconds of any cycle is drain only.
