Key Features

  • 15 Place Settings

STEAM WASH, DON’T PRE-WASH

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.

Quiet Operation

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 42dB, this dishwasher is among the quietest dishwashers in its class.

Split Personality

Split Personality

Enables users to vary the intensity in the upper and lower racks (e.g. delicates in the upper rack, and pots & pans in the lower rack with strong setting), accommodating different items in the same load.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cleans sparkling clear I was very impressed with the ability of this dishwasher to remove stains left by my previous highly reviewed dishwasher. I really enjoy the thought of steam technology. No spots, dishes are dry. I have no complaints. August 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by good unit, happy with it Unit is easy to use and operate. Silverware on the very top shelf does not always come out completely clean. July 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by QUIET QUIET QUITE The only way I know this is working is to look for the blinking blue light. I have bought "quiet" dishwashers before - Not! My dishes are always spotless and I love the little third rack. It is not just quiet - I can't even hear it if I am 5 feet away. Only can hear a slight sound when I am standing right in front of it. AND it matches my refrigerator. July 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by fantastic Dishwasher with one Minor issue Purchased at Best Buy. Excellent machine. I am so impressed with how quiet this thing is. Only noise is draining. My only complaint is that the buttons on the top of the door are not illuminated. Press power, it illuminates. LG should have designed illuminated buttons so you don't have to turn all kitchen lights on to program. Although it seems to take long to clean, the results are phenomenal. Love the new drain clean and screen system. Very nice. The top drawer works for larger utensils, but I honestly use for all my utensils. The quick level adjust on top rack is nice. As a note, stainless steel is fingerprint prone. But, looks awesome when clean. I'd buy again. Thanks LG, hope it holds up! July 4, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Whistling? We love our dishwasher. My favorite part and the reason we bought it is because of the third rack. All of the larger utensils go up there as well as some small containers for salad dressings, etc. There is plenty of space for everything else. The middle glass rack moves up and down to make space for whatever you need. We did notice a high pitched whistling noise every now and then for a little while but it seems to have stopped. A tech came out since it's under warranty twice and took some things apart to check on them but it seems to be better now. It was not loud and it was barely noticeable but still there. We are very happy with our purchase and all the cycle selections. Our dishes are beautifully clean! June 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Steam is where its at! Bought all new LG kitchen and laundry appliances due to the excellent reviews in several leading websites and consumer publications. I have yet to regret it! The stainless metal exteriors are a snap to clean, and each device feels solid, well thought out and constructed. For the dishwasher, again, like everything else LG vs my old units, is virtually silent. The three racks allow for tremendous flexibility, and the fact that they move, flip, fold and contort to your dishes is a "why didnt they do this years ago on my old stuff" moment after first use. The steam function gets plates and glasses super hot, and leaves me feeling good about the sanitary state of my dishes and utensils. Only caveat is the super bright blue lights telling you how far along the cycle is. Its not the idea, I love having the indicator lights (and all of the other musical chimes LG devices make) but these are just really really bright. A quick fix, just cut out some circles from a strip of clear tape. It knocks the brightness down enough that it doesnt light up the entire kitchen at night. Seriously though, I am nit picking with this comment, I am extremely satisfied with my purchase! June 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by One quiet dishwasher We read the reviews for this so we ordered one. After it was installed we put a lot of nasty dirty dishes in and ran the machine. I had to keep going out to the kitchen to see if it was running it was so quite. Also the steam on board is great if you do not overload. May 27, 2015

Answer: 
To keep the CLEAN light on until the door is open, turn the POWER on, and then press and hold the EXTRA DRY and HALF LOAD buttons on the control panel simultaneously until OFF or ON appears in the display. The dishwasher will remember this setting until manually changed again.

Answer: 
I doubt if you will be able to save anything with this dishwasher. It does use very little water. It heavily relies on rinse aid, in fact, I think it uses more rinse aid then water. The way I was explained it works by LG certified technician: it first washes top rack, then it uses the same water on the bottom rack. As result, your dishes left greasy, then it uses the steam to seal the grease on your plates. Then you are rewashing your dishes by hand in the sink, hopefully using very little water. Energy wise also doubtful, washing cycle takes almost 3 hours. Then you also need to add the cost of your time that you will spend with LG customer service trying to figure out why your plates are dirty, who eventually will tell that the unit seems to work as intended.

Yes it does, there is a filter in the drain line in the center of the dishwasher. It does have to be manually cleaned out periodically though.

Recommended Dishwashing Detergent for Hard Water

Hello - We have recently purchased the 8874ST model and are not happy with the performance. Although, LG markets that you don't need to scrub the dishes, we have tried that on numerous occasions and the dishes come out just as we loaded them. We have tried different cycles, including the steam cycle, but the results haven't changed. Also, we live in an area where the water is extremely hard and we are using a rinse aid with each cycle. However, the glasses always come out with water marks. We are frustrated at this point and don't know if we need to change something - perhaps the detergent? Can someone please help us or contact us as soon as possible. Thanks.

Answer: 
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this dishwasher. It is recommended to use a WASH BOOSTER, such as Glass Magic or Lemi Shine. These additives are designed to enhance cleaning performance by countering the effects of minerals in the water, such as what has been described. If the dishes are added without scrubbing, then it would be recommended to use the POWER SCRUB cycle for the wash. This will extend the wash time, add a rinse, and increase the spray intensity. If this does not resolve the matter, then please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 for additional troubleshooting steps.
