Rated 3 out of 5 by Mr.Rut issues with draining
The dishwasher is nice and quiet. However, there are two major issues with this dishwasher:
1. the dishwasher does not always drain properly. There is a filter but objects do get past the filter somehow. This causes something as small as a poppy seed or smaller to prevent the dishwasher from draining properly. I am now having to remove the drain tube from the disposal and using a wine vacuum to suction the water from the drain hose. I need to do this daily. I also have to completely rinse the dishes before putting them in the dishwasher. To me, this defeats the purpose of the "energy saver" label. You should not need to completely rinse dishes before putting them in the dishwasher. The dishwasher is 'supposed' to wash the dishes. Getting large food deposits off seems normal. However, I am finding that need to have the dishes washed prior to putting them in the dishwasher. The 3 different techs that have come to my house have all said that you really do need to rinse thoroughly before putting dishes in the dishwasher.
2. The other issue that I have with the is the rack. The rack does not fit normal dishes well. The rack adjustments to address different size dishes do not stay in place when stacking the dishes. From my point of view, the rack works but it is not the most efficient system.
I gave this dishwasher a 3 star rating. I will add that I tend to have an incredibly high level of tolerance for disruption and malfunction. Other folks who experienced similar problems may have scored the overall ratings much lower.
I am a huge LG fan. I purchased a refrigerator, washer and dryer, television and other products. When the stove goes - I will probably go LG as well. I was betting on the LG name when I got this dishwasher. They haven't been in the dishwasher market for long and it shows.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Kim Doesn't clean and racks are a pain
We purchased a new home and wanted to install all top of the line appliances. I wish I would've read the reviews and did add'l research.
I always rinse dishes so I do not put them in covered in food. Dishes do not come out clean and they come out dripping wet. I've tried different detergents, pods, liquids, rinse agents, etc and they are not clean
Racks are a pain to deal with. They constantly collapse and the glass rack does not fit glasses in more than half of the rows because of their angle.
I'd return it if I could. My basic model was much more efficient than this. Definitely not worth the money

Rated 5 out of 5 by cindye best diswasher ive had
I really love this machine. I cant believe how quiet it is. It does a wonderful job of cleaning my dishes, it holds a lot of dishes, it has taken me some time to figure out all the racks that can be moved as to where I like them the best. I also had trouble with the top rack on one of the shelves constantly falling out and just recently I realized it was in back wards and hasn't come lose since. I do enjoy it for more utensil placing's, and very pleased how good a job it does. I am very happy with the dishwasher.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bjm80 Love my dishwasher!
We have had this dishwasher for a year now, and I absolutely love it! It's incredibly quiet, that I have to go back in the kitchen and make sure I did turn it on. My husband and kids were a little leary to use it at first, scared they would set something wrong, but they found out quickly that it's as easy as 1,2,3. I'm also impressed with the sleek look and design. It compliments our kitchen really well and the black finish is easy to keep clean!

I love this dishwasher! You can stand next to it and not hear it run. It cleans the dishes spotless and so easy to use. I did have a problem with the lower rack and the prongs falling over when loading the dishes. Contacting LG, customer service said that there had been a design change and they sent me a new lower rack. Loading the dishes now is a dream! Thank you LG!!!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by disappointed in Mo the worse dishwasher I've ever had
I have had this dishwasher for approx. 6 weeks. The first two weeks it did fine, now I'm not only cleaning the dishes before I put them in I'm wiping them out when I empty the dishwasher. It is also leaving brown marks on my dishes. It is not quiet anymore either. I don't use any of the other buttons just power on and normal. I'm so disappointed, I wish I never would have bought this. I truly believed LG was the up and coming brand. I was dead wrong. The dishwasher I got rid of was 20 years old and it did a better job than this one.
