Four Reasons to Buy an LG Dishwasher

                                                                                                                               

Put Enhanced Cleaning in Motion

Achieve maximum cleaning throughout the entire cycle with LG QuadWash™. With four spray arms instead of two, QuadWash™ also includes Multi-Motion arms that rotate back and forth while spinning. The high pressure jets power-clean dishes from multiple angles.

Count On It

When you buy a dishwasher, you want something reliable that you can count on. Because the Direct Drive Motor uses fewer moving parts and operates more efficiently, LG confidently backs the motor with a 10-year warranty.

Easy Loading & Maximum Flexibility

The newly-enhanced EasyRack™ Plus system provides outstanding flexibility and convenience, adjusting to just about any load of dishes to help ensure optimal cleaning performance. Easy to adjust on-the-fly, this racking system can shift to handle any challenge your dishes can serve up.

Smarter Washing

SmartThinQ® technology lets you stay connected with features like Smart Access and Smart Adapt, which allow you to monitor your dishwasher remotely and download new cycles. Smart Diagnosis helps you troubleshoot quickly and efficiently if needed.

Quiet Operation

LG's technological advances, like the Inverter DirectDrive motor and the advanced self-cleaning filtration system, were designed with quiet in mind. At 48dB, this dishwasher is among the quietest dishwashers in its class.

What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I just bought it and I am very glad to purchase it because of its excellent performance and great features.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed over the lack on display consistency I wish LG could decide on ONE color for the displays on their appliances. My kitchen looks like it's been patched together with appliances from 3 different companies. My new dishwasher has a white display. My new microwave has a green display. My new range/oven has a blue display.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Happy! Bought this last month and we love it. So happy with our new LG!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lacks a heated dry option Our former 10 year old Kenmore had a heated dry option. It really sped the wash and dry of dishes and was more sanitary. This unit doesn't have that option and even letting the dishes sit in it overnight doesn't completely dry everything in the dishwasher. I wished I had researched it more before buying it. Very disappointing.

Is there a specific brand of dishwashing detergent or rinse aid that lg recommends using with their product?

Asked by: Kharv17
We appreciate your interest in this dishwasher. We would recommend the use of JET DRY rinse aid, and any detergent brand would be fine as long as its not solvent-based detergent.

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.
