Rated 4 out of 5 by from Some features are not designed well. This machine seems to get dishes clean, but does not dry dishes unless the sanitary option is used. The racks in this machine are poorly designed. The lower rack prongs are to close together and dishes want to fall over when loaded. We had to buy a new set of thinner dishes to have any hope of the dishes standing up. Even the new dishes will easily fall forward. The design of the upper rack limits the number of glasses and cups that can be loaded compared to our old machine. This is a major issue for us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't beat this quality! I like the black color + it runs very quiet. Everything is great except the running time. Most of the time it runs for 2-3.5 hrs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it! This dishwasher is extremely quiet! People don't even know it's running unless I tell them. Once you figure out the new layout of the new dishwasher, it's great! Took me a few to figure out the best way to organize my dishes in there but there is so much room and you can adjust any of the 'pins' to fit any size dish and they all get clean! I love it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very quiet, energy efficient, great features This dishwasher is great. I love the adjustable racks for loading. The problem is cleaning the filter. The instructions I received and the ones I am referred to online are not for my machine. My filter is totally different than pictured. But, I've solved that problem, so far, by using 1 cup of vinegar in a cup, placed in the bottom rack, instead of Jet Dry. That stopped the white residue on everything. Plus, I use 1/2 a tablet of detergent and I rinse the dishes before loading. So far, so good. It's nice to know I'm not the only one with this problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome appliance that lives up to its name. Hats off to the design team on this product. Works well, quiet, much better cleaning than the one I replaced. It really does clean in less time which lowers my electric bill. Only had it a few months but I don't think reliability is going to be an issue. Took some time to get use to the adjustable shelves but now I see the advantages. Great job on another LG product. I plan to add a few more soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Semi-Integrated Dishwasher with Flexible EasyRack¢ Great product. The quietest dishwasher I've ever owned. Very happy with quality and performance. A little pricy buy you get what you pay for.
