What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good dishwasher! We bought this dishwasher last week through Home Depot. I saw some negative comments in a few reviews about the dishes not being dry so we were a little worried about that aspect. We tried our first load on Auto and Extra Dry (adds 20 minutes to the cycle) and everything came out spotless and dry except for a tiny bit of moisture on top of a couple of cups that had slightly recessed bottoms. So it doesn't look like we will miss the heated dry cycle the old dishwasher had (that left the same type of moisture residue in those same cups.) The dishwasher was very quiet, and sitting a few feet away, the only time we knew it was running was a slight sloshing noise during the times it was gently draining water out. We think the front design and style (brushed aluminum) looks great, even though we have older dark-walnut cabinets. We are delighted with the appliance.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I would not purchase it again Owned for 10 months. Has had service 1, called customer care twice. Machine frequently stops working. Have to cut power 10 min. to 24 hr. for machine to reset itself and works again. Cleaning quality is way less than stellar. And in all fairness I will assume some of the blame as I have yet to determine why it leaves spots on some loads. Also, after trying multiple types and brands of cleaning detergents, the inside of the door remains to stain with a white residue. The machine rinses poorly, stains glassware and stainless pots and pans. The only cycle that seems to perform adequately is normal with extra heat and extra drying time. On this cycle it cuts spotting (yes with a drying agent) down to about 25%. Also, there is no clear way to see when the drying agent is depleted in the machine. (There may be an indicator on the front). The configuration is such that it would require two loads to clean a normal daily family meal. I always end up washing a load as the dishwasher will not hold all that a normal meal requires. Daily I cook a meat, vegetable, starch, bread for a family of five.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it Replaced our old dishwasher that was super loud and clunky. Love this design, quiet and easy to load. Only issue I see is wine glasses dont fit on racks well, but everything else does. Very happy with this.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rust on the rack and LG won't help We bought this dishwasher in October of 2016. A few months later we began noticing rust on the rack. We tried to get help through the warranty and were told that LG does not warrant rust on the rack. We are now just over the 8th month mark, and the rust is becoming so severe we are having to consider buying another dishwasher rather than facing the constant need to replace these very custom racks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good washer Isn't completely quiet like other models but washes great and looks great. I love how you can adjust the upper rack so you can fit larger items.

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. To make service arrangements, you may either contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000, or you can check our Repair Provider Lookup on our website, at http://www.lg.com/us/support/repair/support-repair-provider-lookup.jsp.
