What People Are Saying

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 158 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product! This was the first dishwasher that we had bought in several years. our old one had been out for about 5 years. When we picked this one out at best buy and we had to wait about 2 weeks before it came on the market. after professional instillation we could not believe how quiet it was and how well it washed and dried the dishes. The soft food disposer is a treat. Hardly any rinsing of dishes before washing. Thank you for such a great well made product at an affordable price....It is good to see a company that will back up their product for 10 years. We were sold. August 2, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by not the quality I expected We purchased this dishwasher thinking that we were buying a good quality appliance. Boy, were we wrong! This dishwasher is difficult to load, doesn't hold as much as the 10-year-old dishwasher that we replaced, and doesn't do a great job of getting the dishes clean. I've already had a glass get broken in the top rack because they tend to fall over if you're not very, very careful in how and where the glasses are placed. The bottom rack comes off the track, making it necessary to take out the dirty dishes, replace the rack on its track, and reload. What a nuisance! It is really quiet, but that's about the only good thing I can say about it. I'm really disappointed in this dishwasher, and wouldn't recommend it to anybody. July 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best dishwasher I've ever owned We needed to replace a dishwasher that came with the home we bought last year, which was less than 10 years old. I had to re-wash glasses and dishes frequently! Frustrated,because the last few years with a couple of moves, every dishwasher was garbage. I researched to narrow down my choices in a price range that fit our budget and came to the LG brand. We bought it and had it delivered the next day. Being somewhat handy, my husband and I did our own installation (not a difficult thing to do) and since then I have been thrilled with the results! Clean dishes and glassware, easy loading and flexibility with the fold down tines, and plenty of room on top rack to even put my wine glasses. Since we were made aware by the salesman of the importance of using a rinse-aid for thorough drying, something I used anyway, my dishes and glasses come out dry, something I couldn't say about the top-rated brand dishwasher that we had installed in one home about 10 years ago. The operation is so very quiet and the ease of use is great. Since I usually run my dishwasher during the night, to conserve energy, I haven't worried about the length it runs, but love the timer that tells you how much longer the cycle has to go. Now I am looking forward to the new LG range and microwave to be delivered later this week, to replace the range of another popular brand that, although it functions fine, the flaw in the door handle design has caused the handle to come off in the middle of baking! Not a fun thing to deal with! So, eagerly looking forward to this new, top-rated LG range and the microwave to go with the new dishwasher. Bring on the fall and holiday baking season! July 29, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Disappointed The racks seems to be arranged in a strange manner that does not give more room. Additionally, the washer seems to trap food odors from dishes sitting in it that it stinks up the house if we left it even slightly open...not very happy about the smell and the capacity. July 24, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by This dishwasher is really quiet. I'm pleased with the purchase of this dishwasher. It is extremely quiet. I have the top rack lowered, this enables larger items to fit with no problem. The only issue I have is that dinner plates placed in the bottom of the dishwasher will fall forward if the rack isn't pushed in smoothly. I think the tines are a little too short. However, I would definitely recommend this product. It holds a lot of dishes and cleans well. July 24, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Dissapointed in LG Bottom rack derails constantly,can't read options window,dishes not completely dry,odor developed after 3rd use. All in all not up to LG quality July 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love It!! I have the refrigerator, dishwasher and next will be the stove!!! I love LG. July 9, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Probably would not purchase again I'm a little disappointed in this dishwasher. Our tall glasses easily tip over on the top rack and they are not getting as clean as I would like. On the bottom rack, if tall plates are lined up and then touched lightly,they all lean over and you must re-position them. These features are very annoying. July 8, 2014

My tankless water heater needs a minimum flow rate of 0.4GPM to activate (heat up the water). When the dishwasher fills with water at what flow rate does this occur?

Answer: 
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this dishwasher. The drying of the dishes is an automatic portion of the wash process on most cycles. A CYCLE OPTION chart is available on page 9 of your owner’s manual to suggest which settings allow for a full DRY cycle. If you have additional questions, or more specific information regarding the cycles in use, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 for assistance.

The Home Depot website says it does, Amazon.com says it does, the Best Buy website says it does not, and the LG website itself says it does. I just want to clarify. Thanks!
