What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Short life I bought this unit 3 years ago and it stopped cold and would not work. After 3 visits and over $400 for parts, I am paying half of what I originally paid for this when I bought it new. Do NOT buy it. I am disabled and cannot afford this on SSDI.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works OK First dishwasher we have ever owned so we don't have anything to compare it to. Don't know how we functioned without a dishwasher. This unit seems to do the job but is slow. It is very quiet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this DISHWASHER!!! :LG Model LDS5540WW I was hesitant because of some of the bad reviews about it not drying the dishes well and not having something lit up that says its finished. The second part is true and not true. There is nothing lit up that says clean BUT when it is running you can see a timer going the whole time. So i know when it will be done. As for drying the dishes it gets everything extremely dry except plastic. And I think it even drys my dishes better then my old dishwasher which had a heated cycle. Its amazing how hot the dishes are if you take them out immediately after the cycle is done. The best part about this dishwasher is all the ways you can adjust the spaces for dishes. All the other brands do not have this option or not as good as this one. I have been able to get all my big pasta bowls in no problem. I brought my dishes into the store to make sure they would fit, i would suggest you do this too, especially if you have larger bowl. I am really glad I did this because the bowls did not fit in any other dishwasher, the spaces were too small. One of the other complaints I read was about the dishes not standing upright. I have not had this problem but I also make sure to face them in a way where this doesn't happen. So if you just take your time and load it well your dishes will be fine. Overall I LOVE my machine and I installed it myself and I am a woman. Yes it took me 4 hours by myself because it was delivered around 7pm (late). My kitchen was darker so it was harder to see and I would put down a tool go into another room and it would take me a while to find the tool again. The hardest part was installing the new drain line because it was a tight area and a little uncomfortable reaching under the sink and getting around the disposal. But i did it and it makes me love it even more!!! I would suggest having another person to help you install it. If I had someone there to read the instructions and hand me the proper tools, it would have taken an hour maybe an hour and a half. I also suggest you run it a few times before you seal up the bottom to make sure there are no leaks. I didn't have any leaks but still waited for a few washes to make sure it was working properly. I did also watch installation videos on youtube and think that LG could have made a better video starting with unpacking the box (because there is a lot of extra material) with step by step directions. They go very fast in their video and do not show things close up. In this day and age it is not difficult to get out a phone camera and film someone installing it. Would be easy and helpful to other customers. The only con is it takes 3 hours to run the machine but that hasn't been an issue so far. I usually run it at night and sometimes its done before i goto bed. Over all I am VERY VERY happy with my purchase and proud of installing it myself. I would 100% recommend this machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super clean dishes! I love LG products, but this dishwasher takes the cake! It's easy to load, with adjustable pegs and racks. Even the kids can do it and the dishes come clean! It's ridiculously quiet as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2nd LG washer owned. The best yet! This machine is so quiet I can't tel if it's running standing in front of it unless I am not talking and listening carefully. It is the answer to my wife's kitchen prayers! No more closing the kitchen doors to watch TV in the house! Love the top rack only feature. It does great work. Five year old LG model in our old home induced us to by this one by example!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I Recommend It Even though . . . I have not been as happy as I wanted to be. It does not have some of the settings I have been used to and the cycles are sure lengthy. My dishes don't always get clean and it could be the detergent. I am using a detergent I have never used before. I bought it primarily for the design because it does not have a huge handle out front. I like the sleek minimalist design. The stainless steel interior is a plus. So I recommend it even though the dishes don't always get clean since I thinking it might be the detergent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cleans well if you can stack the plates correctly. Initially we had nothing but dirty dishes coming out of the dishwasher, even on the 'tough scrub' cycle. The problem is that the plates are extremely difficult to keep upright, and so they all stick together, and hence do not clean properly. We're now considering replacing our dinnerware just so that we can stack it in the dishwasher, it's that awkward. However, if you adjust the tines and only put about 4 dinner plates in the machine at a time, then the machine washes very well. It's a bit disappointing, as our last dishwasher handled anything, and I do hope that LG see that this is a common complaint, and offer an alternative bottom rack in the near future.
