What People Are Saying

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Dissapointed We purchaced this dishwasher after one I liked bit the dust. My husband insisted on stainless insides and we choose this brand as we have other LG products we really like. We have had this DW about 6mo now and I dislike it emensly. The bottom drawer is to low, its like loading dishes on the floor, the tines fall over so easily. When lifting them back up it knocks over the plates already loaded. It runs far too long for an energy efficient appliance 2.21hr, the quick wash is 1.21hr and if you slect extra dry it adds another hour. Top rack didnt come with a stemware rack, so you have to load very carefully. You have to use a drying aid or dishes spot as well as the stainless interior. Its hard to see the buttons on the front panel. What I do like, its very quiet. And you can adjust the top rack for tall items. Bottom line for a $900 dishwasher LG should have done much better on design and energy star effeciency. They tried to pack too many adjustable features in this DW.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Takes time to get used to . I've waited a few months to get used to this dishwasher and I find that has helped as far as learning how to load it best. Chinaware and stemware as well as regular drinking glasses come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes so there is no 1-rack to fit every possibility. It's just a matter of getting used to. The unit, I must say is very quiet ! The only recommendation i would make for this unit would be for the selected settings to be more easily visible on the control panel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Dishwasher I love this dishwasher, it is sooo quiet and very easy to use. The adjustable tines and adjustable upper rack make loading a variety of items simple and efficient. It does hold a lot of dishes and everything comes out clean.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Detergent dispenser faulty I have had the detergent dispenser replaced under warranty twice and it is still causing issues. The dispenser sticks and no detergent goes in the machine to clean the dishes. I expected more from LG

Rated 1 out of 5 by from My OLD machine was much better! I would not recommend this product! Its quiet-thats the only good thing. The set up of the racks makes it a pain to load and it does`t hold as many dishes as a family would hope for, the racks come off the track nearly every time I use them, the regular running time is about 2.5 hours, my utensils come out dirty- even though I rinse first, the door easily pulls open which is no good if kids are around (and a latch isn't an option) especially if its pulled open while its running because the the water/cycle does`t pause or stop. Now just yesterday the door will not close… the latch is broken or something.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Large capacity and flexible for the best use of sp This dishwasher is super quiet. The two racks are adjustable and changeable to make it possible to fit tons of dishes in it. sometimes it isn't quite full but I am out of dishes so I need to run it anyways. The dishes all come out clean. Only con we have found is that there is no indicator light that stays on so you can tell that the dishwasher is done. We put a magnet on the front that we move one direction for dirty, and change the direction when we start the dishwasher so we know that the dishwasher has been put through a cleaning cycle

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Terrible to load While this dishwasher is quiet and cleans well, it is absolutely terrible to load, especially the upper rack. Glasses in the upper rack do not sit properly and will therefore fall and break. Plates in the bottom rack often fall forward together. I would not recommend this dishwasher.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent machine We have had this two months now and are very pleased with its performance!! It holds so many dishes and being able to vary the width of the tines makes it very easy to put in large items. It cleans everything thoroughly and keeping the utensils separate is great. One thing I have noticed is that it seems to go through the jet dry quickly, but that may be why even the plastics come out dry. We appreciate how quiet it is also. Overall an excellent machine. We have an LG washer and dryer and are also very pleased with their performance
