What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The racks have an extremely bad design I bought my dishwasher a week ago, and I'm ready to return it to the store. The dishwasher is extremely quiet and has a nice exterior design. But the interior is so frustrating. I have square dishes, and the rack design does not provide enough support for them to stay straight, so the shorter ones turn and the bottom part sticks out interfering with the sprayer, so I have to put them in the upper rack. Now the upper rack has other kind of problems, here the small dishes stay straight, but now I don't have enough space for cups and glasses, not only because of the dishes, but because a couple of the middle rows are so narrow that wider cups don't fit! We always use a lot of glasses and cups, so the space on the upper rack is very important. Now I can't fill the dishwasher before starting it, because half way there I already ran out of space for them. In my previous dishwasher, a Kitchen Aid, I was able to fit my dishes with no problem and two, maybe even three times the cups and glasses. I tried to check if I could just buy a different rack, but they don't have them. So, I will try to see if the store can take it back. It is a shame, I always liked LG products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does a great job! Dishwasher looks great and does a great job cleaning the dishes. It's sleek, no levers or buttons so it doesn't collect dirt or get caught on your clothing. The jets get the job done inside - we've yet to notice any food leftover on dishes or in the unit. It could use a bigger silverware tray - we end up placing serving and larger spoons on the top rack, but that's our only complaint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love our new dishwasher! I installed my new LG Dishwasher a week ago, and have been loving it ever since. It's so quiet, only 48 db. It has LG's new QuadWash to achieve maximum cleaning coverage throughout the entire cycle. Dishes have been spotless, very happy with the results!

When did this model become available with extra rack? I just had mine delivered this week, and it does not have the easy rack.

Asked by: ap78
We appreciate your interest in this dishwasher. The specifications of this machine suggest it was always designed with the Easy Rack system. It is recommended to confirm the model number on the machine itself to ensure it is, in fact, this particular model.

I'm replaceig my old dishwasher with the LDF5545ST. The old unit tooka a 24.25 inch wide hole will his unit work without something extra to fill in the gaps around the unit?

Asked by: Eddie Iezek
HI Eddie. Thank you for your interest in the LG Front Control Dishwasher with QuadWash™ and EasyRack™ Plus, Model # LDF5545ST. The width on Standard kitchen cabinets will vary but the height is always 31" and the toe kick is always 1 1/2" for a combined height of 34 1/2". The Countertop is always 1 1/2" thick so the height total height or Countertop height is 36". The LDF5545ST is designed to fit into standard kitchen cabinets and has a width of 23.75". That will leave you with a gap of 1/2" (i.e 1/4" on either side of the dishwasher)...^IFV

I bought a sink with 2 holes. One for the faucet and another for the soap dispenser. Can this dishwasher be installed without the air gap? How do I bypass it? Thanks 

Asked by: Val A214
The purpose of an air gap in the dishwasher line is to prevent dirty water from a backed up sink from entering the dishwasher and contaminating your clean dishes. It's a type of vent. All drain lines in the house need some type of vent. The LG Front Control Dishwasher with QuadWash™ and EasyRack™ Plus, Model # LDF5545ST can be connected with or without an air gap, but many townships and local municipalities now require an air gap to be installed at the same time as the dishwasher so you will want to inquire about what your building codes are. If installing it without the air gap, the height of the drain hose must be at least 12" and within 40" from the base of the dishwasher to avoid water from being siphoned from the tub...^IFV

Dishwasher shuts off and I have to open door and restart. Why? Happens often. No error codes displayed

Asked by: MVL0626
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this dishwasher. If no error codes are being displayed, then it is difficult to determine the cause of this loss of power without the inspection by a qualified service technician.

I'm interested in buying this machine, but not if I can't remove the advertising sticker re 10 yr warranty that is shown in all the pictures.  Is it really permanent? Can it be removed?

Asked by: LG interested
The 10 year warranty decal on the LG Front Control Dishwasher with QuadWash™ and EasyRack™ Plus, Model # LDF5545ST is not meant to be removed but if you really feel you need to remove it you will have to be extremely careful not to scratch or damage the stainless steel underneath as that will not be covered under warranty...^IFV

The user manual does not show a 12 place loading pattern. I purchased the LDF5545ST thinking I could get 12 place loading. The cupshelves are not in my model, so can I still get a 12 place loaded?

Asked by: max10
We appreciate your interest in this dishwasher. Page 29, of the owner’s manual, shows loading patterns for both a 10-place and a 12-place setting, for the lower rack, with information about the loading of the upper rack on page 32.

there is a $50 visa card rebate on this machine which I found on the website last week - after I purchased my machine but before it was delivered - and I needed the S/N to claim the rebate. Now I cannot find the form. Was in effect for the month of Oct.
