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.

What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost perfect Dishwasher My husband and I are very pleased with every appliance we have bought from LG and everything about this dishwasher stands up to the standards they have in appliances with a couple of drawbacks in design flaws. The panel at the top of the door with all the controls for the dishwasher are very hard to read. If you have bad eyesight this is a negative. It would be nice if LG would of used the same coloring on the Logo at the left side of the door for the whole panel. The next problem was the bottom rack wants to roll off the guide on the door. I do not know if this is due to small wheels on the rack. It causes dishes to collapse because the tines fold over due to being bumped. I love how quiet this dishwasher is and how sparkly clean the dishes come out. I have to say my dishes have not looked this good in years. My glasses actually look new to me. I hope LG goes to redesign these few things and then they will corner the market with a fabulous dishwasher.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quiet Quietest dishwasher ive ever heard. Has some issues though. There is a thin silverware shelf at the top that interferes with things on the next shelf. Small bowls and tall cups will not fit because of the silverware shelf. The silverware basket is in the back on the bottom shelf requiring you to pull the shelf all the way out for access. A pain when youre only putting silverware in.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Quiet but... I have owned this dishwasher for about 5 months and, as others have said, it cleans well and is very quiet. There are some negatives which I feel should have been obvious to the designers. 1. there are a lot of options for configuring the racks (great!) but after a while they fall down too easily if bumped (Bad!). The hidden controls look great and include a countdown timer (great!), but you can't see the timer when the door is closed and the button surround is lit when selected but the labels aren't (bad!) You have to memorise the positions of your favorite selections or turn on all the lights in the kitchen to see at night. The blue LED flashes to show that it is working (great!), the LED is so bright the whole kitchen flashes blue and there is no option to turn it off (bad!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quietist dishwasher I have ever seen. This is by far the best dishwasher that I have ever owned. It does a wonderful job in cleaning and is so quiet. The filter is easily assessable for cleaning. We are thrilled with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Quiet I love my new dishwasher. It is incredibly quiet and the extra top rack is such a convenience for spatulas and other long utensils. My husband and son installed it and really liked the ease of connecting the lines from the front of the machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

What do each of the 4 lights on the front panel indicate? On a ldf8874st

Asked by: Liz Simms
We appreciate your interest in this dishwasher. According to the information on page 7 of your owner’s manual, those models with 4 indicator lights use them for a display of different CYCLE operations: WASH – RINSE – DRY – CLEAN. Once the cycle is complete, the CLEAN light will remain lit for 4 minutes.

It says the light that indicates that the dishwasher load is complete stays on for four minutes, but you can program it to stay on until you open the door, how do I program it?

What is the energy efficiency in KwH/yr and water consumption in gallons per year for this dishwasher?

Asked by: SwiGoose
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.
