  • LDF8072ST

  • Stainless Steel

Key Features

  • TrueSteam™ Generator
  • EasyRack™ Plus
  • Height Adjustable 3rd Rack
  • LoDecibel™ Operation


Powerful yet gentle TrueSteam™ virtually eliminates the need to pre-wash. The built-in TrueSteam™ generator also enables gentle cleaning for fragile items (like stemware), and can also be used for heavy-duty cleaning like pots and pans.

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.

Step Up to the 3rd Rack

Step Up to the 3rd Rack

The height adjustable 3rd rack gives you more space to fit everything from long flatware to small espresso cups.

Whisper-Quiet Operation

LG's technological advances, like the Inverter DirectDrive motor and the advanced 3-stage filtration system, were designed with quiet in mind. At 45dB, this dishwasher is among the quietest dishwashers in its class.

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 limited warranty.

Get wise

Smart Diagnosis helps the service center diagnose problems over the phone, helping you troubleshoot quickly.

What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dishwasher We have had the dishwasher for over a year and like it. We have two issues. First, in a load there is always a few items that don't dry. Always need to wipe some items off before putting away. Second, we have found a few drops of water coming off the bottom left front of the machine near the end of the wash cycle. Not every load but just sometimes. It is very small (almost not enough to notice) but enough so stain the hardwood floors in our kitchen. I call LG support and they claim it is humidity related. The serviceman they sent out could not find anything. Said if problem persisted he could replace the door seal. When I called him back to do so he never returned multiple calls. I replaced the damaged floor. Now we put a bowl down to catch any drops if it occurs. Not exactly what you want to do with a new machine but it works.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The Worst! This is without a doubt the worst dishwasher I've ever owned. Unless I use the strongest steam setting, the dishes come out dirty. My plates will not stand up when stacked - they lean over on each other. The folding tines fall down at the slightest touch. Based on my experience with this product, I will never purchase an LG appliance again. Don't waste your money. This is NOT a cheap machine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from QUIET - I mean quiet. Unless used on Steam Cycle it does not clean as well as our old machine and it leaves spotted dishware. It is extremely quiet. Satisfied but was expecting more from this pricey unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Product I really like this dishwasher. Having used many other brands in the past this is the first LG I have purchased. Having three racks to separate things is wonderful. I don't end up with spoons nesting together and not cleaning. The screen in the bottom is removable to clean, This is great with kids who don't always rinse things. After my husband finished connecting everything and I ran it for the first time, we stood in the kitchen looking at each other and asked is it running? It is so quiet we were not sure if it was running or not. Recommend this product to everyone I know who is looking to replace an older dishwasher.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love having 3 trays So much room for dishes. The deep bottom tray and narrow top trey for silverware are great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love love love this dishwasher We had an Electrolux dishwasher so the bar was set very low. Lots of space, cleans very well, very quiet, easy to install. Absolutely love the 3 row and the steam cycle. It steams on both levels. We looked at several dishwashers. Never had a LG. I am convinced that LG is the real deal. We got a good deal on the dishwasher due to some tape on the outside door. It however is worth every penny they are asking for it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This product is exceptionally quiet. I love the quietness of the dishwasher. Cons: The things I don't like are: The lower rack derails constantly, especially when it is weighted with dishware as if the rollers are not wide enough. The middle rack design is universal but it doesn't allow for glassware to be racked without most of them falling over. At the end of the washing cycle if the green light would stay on indefinitely, other members of the family would know the dishes were already washed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Dishwasher This dishwasher has plenty of space, adjusts nicely, cleans well, very quiet. I like the control panel and all the options. The cutlery basket could be designed differently. I am happy with this machine.

When asked if the dishwasher had a food disposal you answered, No. Saving energy and noise, it opts for an advanced filtration system. What is that?

We want to buy the dishwasher but really do not want to have to remove the filter and clean it every time the dishwasher is used. What is an advanced filtration system, how does it work, and do I have to clean it? I've heard complaints of the dishwasher smelling, is this why? Please advise.
Asked by: Waitingtohear
never had issues with smell. I clean the filter about once a month. Easy to clean.

Water consumption

What is the range of water usage among the cycle choices?
Asked by: BillyM
We appreciate your interest in this dishwasher. Page 13 of the owner’s manual provides a Cycle Selection Chart, which includes the average water consumption of each cycle. The range of water usage varies from 1 to 7.6 gallons of water. Actual water consumption will vary depending upon soil level and water hardness.

Will the LDF8072ST with steam clean work well if you have hard water and a high TDS(total disolved solids) count coming from an artesion well ?

What happens to the TDS (mostly calcium and sodium carbonate) when you generate steam ? Does the steam generator need to be cleaned ? thx

This is a defective model with known pump failure issues. LG tried to correct by inserting a new type of filter, but that effort also failed. Buyer beware.
