What People Are Saying

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 322 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent dishwasher! This is a good looking dishwasher with an easy to use control panel! It is extremely quiet gets my dishes sparkling clean! August 8, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Very quiet / issue -Dishes staying upright & Stain Pro: Runs quiet and I like the flexibiliy in the racks. Cons: Plates have difficulty standing up and fall stacked on each other. There is a stain on the insided of the door - I have never seen that occur. It doesn't wipe off so I will attempt to use stain removal. It appears to be smaller / less capacity than our previous dishwasher. Overall, it does fine but I would not purchase again so I cannot recommend this product. July 31, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Worst dishwasher ever! This dishwasher is super quiet, and a chime sounds at the end of the cycle to let you know it's finished. The good features end there. The dishes don't get clean unless I completely wash them by hand before putting them in the dishwasher, even if the dishwasher is only half full. I have checked all the troubleshooting items and found none apply - my water temp and pressure are fine, water jet holes not blocked, dishes are loaded correctly, filters are not clogged, detergent is fine, etc. The photo in the manual shows 10 and 12 place settings loaded - there is NO WAY this dishwasher will even clean 5 place settings. Pots and pans?? Forget that! The silverware doesn't get clean regardless of how I place it in the baskets, and I have tried numerous brands of detergent, so that doesn't seem to be the reason. Nothing is dry at the end of the cycle, even though the rinse agent dispenser is full. My prior dishwasher was 20 years old when it broke - it cleaned 10 times better than this one until it broke and parts were not available. All in all I can't describe how disappointed I am with this dishwasher July 24, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by don.t buy Pros it is very quiet, cleans well. That said,Cons: it takes over 2 hours to wash the dishes. Also I have pottery dishware, they are too wide fro the rack on the bottom. Top rack only works for mugs or low cups bowls, ,my water glasses are too tall to fit, I assumed all dishwashers had same depth for top rack NO! WHAT a let down . now i'm stuck with this stupid machine and still have to wash half my dishes. what a waist of money. What is worse when I complained at the store I BOUGHT THIS AT, THEY SAY oh WELL. July 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome. The first dishwasher that my wife was completely happy with. Enough said. August 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quiet and efficient I have only had this dishwasher for a few weeks but am totally satisfied with the way it cleans dishes and is so very quiet. June 16, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good dishwasher, but needs a few improvements Pros: Super quiet, cleans exceptionally well. Cons: The adjustable tines in the racks. I have to comment on a few things here. This unit is beautiful, extremely quiet, and best of all, cleans exceptionally well. There are many choices on the door for different situations. I live alone and wash off my plates prior to putting them in the dishwasher, so I normally only use the "Quick wash". If friends come over and we use a lot of cups (coffee) or glasses for alcohol beverages, I can us the "upper rack only" cycle which saves water, electricity, and soap. The washer is very efficient and drys without any additional heater element. Now, if they would only do away with the folding tines which don't hold the dishes in place I would be a happy camper! June 16, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by quiet and cleans one down side unlike other washers we've owned t does not have a pre rinse cycle.. Very handy when wantging to clean pots and pans without damaging the Teflon coating June 8, 2015

Answer: 
The stainless steel dishwasher has no drying option. The heat from washing is absorbed by the dishes and they dry on their own. So far, for me, this has worked great!

Answer: 
There is no heating element in this machine. It drys using the heat of the dishes (from hot water) and suction. I put my plastic cups on the bottom rack when there is no room left on top. They are fine (not melted).

Ours takes about 2 hours to do a normal cycle wash. There is a quick cycle that is considerably less time. The longest, strongest cycle took 4 hours to run, but we only did it right after installation.

Answer: 
I just got one and HAD to get the install package. Which should really have been rolled into the price if its compulsory. Perhaps its because I had it installed rather than doing it myself. I would recommend you put in new because plastic gets old and cracks, and you don't want a flood.

Is there a manual or a Quick Info for this product?

We did not receive any instructions from Home Depot. For every cycle we tried so far, the machine goes on for hours and beeps and stops until you open the door. Should the machine take 2-3 hours to clean dishes?

Product: LDS5040ST/BB/WW

Thank you

I'm sure if you went to the link in the other answer you found out there is no manual to download for this dishwasher. It just says not available for this model. I wrote this response for others like myself that have been trying to find owners manual. I've tried and tried to approach this from various areas where it has a link for manual but it takes me to same screen which has specs and energy download but spot for manual says not available, just great LG
