Four Reasons to Buy an LG Dishwasher

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.

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice product I bought my dishwasher about 2 months ago and have been pleased with it. It cleans well and is pretty efficient. The standard run time is about 2 hours, which seems to be the norm with washers now days, but there is an express that runs about an hour. It's quiet while operating. It cleans well although stuck on food doesn't always come off and i would advise pre-rinsing stuck on food just to be sure it gets cleaned. Overall, I have not had any major problems and am a satisfied customer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from An average dishwasher This dishwasher works okay but is nothing spectacular. The best feature is that it is quiet. The adjustable upper rack (options of lowering rack and folding down tines to create larger open areas on rack) is also helpful. Unfortunately, silverware does not always come out clean and bowls do not fit well in the rack. Oh, and just for aesthetics' sake, I wish the "10 year warranty" label could be removed from the front panel of the door. It's rather tacky.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great wash, wish it dried better I bought this about a month ago. So far I've been happy with the way it washes but you have to select the "extra dry" cycle if you wabtvthem dried, which is an additional 30 minutes. The machine is also quite musical, which I find very annoying. I found out the hard way that I can't run this before bed or I will be awoken by the song it plays when it's finished.

Why does my dishwasher smell? I've only used it a couple of time. Previous dishwasher didn't smell. Have to hold my breath!

Asked by: Lauren31
There are 3 main possible causes for odors coming from your dishwasher: 1) The previous cycle was stopped before completion and residual water remains in the dishwasher. To Fix: Turn on the power, run the Cancel cycle option to remove the residual water, then run the Turbo cycle using detergent but with the dishwasher empty. 2) There is food in the bottom of the unit or in the filter. To Fix: Clean the filter and the interior according to the Maintenance section of the owner’s manual. 3) Unwashed dishes are left in the unit for a long time. To Fix: Cycle with one cup of white vinegar in a dishwasher safe glass or bowl placed on the upper rack. (Vinegar is an acid, and with constant use it could damage your appliance.)

Although advertised as being able to download a cycle via WiFi, I can't find procedure without using an NFC enabled smart phone. The mobile app indicates a long press of delay start button will connect to WiFi, but it hasn't worked.

Information regarding downloading cycles to your dishwasher can be found on page 39 of the owner's manual which you can view a downloadable copy here: http://www.lg.com/us/support-product/lg-LDF5545ST#manuals ^CP

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.
