Fully-Integrated SteamDishwasher™ w/ 3rd Rack

  • LDF8874ST

Key Features

  • 15 Place Settings
  • 6 Cycles
  • Hidden SmoothTouch™ Controls with LED Display
  • TrueSteam™


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.

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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Indicator Light

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?
Asked by: Terryg
Yes you can. Turn the power on, and them press and hold the extra dry and half load buttons on the control panel simultaneously until On appears in the display.

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.

Does the LDF8874ST have a hard food disposal

Asked by: Adele
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.

110v or 220v

Hi, Do you make this dishwasher dual voltage or 220v? If not I need to know the watts required to make it work in order to install a 110v electric board in my house. Thank you. Carlos
