Answer: 
Our old dishwasher had an electric element that heated the dishes after washing to dry them. We never used it. The dishes always dried by themselves. The LG has no element. The dishes dry by themselves without any additional heat. It is an electricity saving step I believe.

Answer: 
Instead of a heating coil, the hot air from the water is circulated for drying. It is important not to open the dishwasher during the drying cycle, as some of the built-up heat will escape.

Answer: 
HYBRID DRYING SYSTEM
This system effectively dries dishes without the use of a heating element that would increase energy consumption.

FAQ: Is a rinse aid required to be used? (E.g. alcohol or vinegar based)
Rinse aid is recommended to enhance the drying performance of the dishwasher. In order to be more energy efficient, the hybrid drying system does not utilize a heating element in order to assist in drying, so a rinse aid plays an integral role in the dry process. If a rinse aid is not used, water may remain on the dishes and the tub. Rinse aid will help to ensure that the majority of the water has been sheeted off of the dishes at the end of the rinse and that the load is ready for the dry cycle.

Answer: 
I had the same question/issue, contact customer service and they can give you the name of the contractor they use for repairs. The toeplate in white is considered a custom order and they fabricate it for you so no return. It wasnt cost justified to me so I let it go, unfortunately I do not remember the name of the company used nor the price.

air gap

Is the air gap necessary with the LDS5040ww model? Is there a way to either remove the hose altogether or keep it under the sink as I need the hole on my sink.

I have heard that some dishwashers have very long wash cycles, up to 1 hour long or more. Where this might save water is does waste electricty.

Answer: 
It is based on settings. If you choose light load vs potscrubber. Top rack only, sanitize, extra rinse, etc... That is one very appealing aspect, you can control, for the most part, the cycle length and water efficiency of the wash.

What does error alert FE stand for?

We get an alert of FE at least 2-3 times per month ever since we got the unit. Once we start the cycle over again, it usually makes it through without another error. Would like to know what this means and how to avoid it in the future.

Answer: 
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this dishwasher. The FE Error Code indicates an excessive amount of water has been supplied. In such a situation, the unit will likely require service. To make service arrangements, you may either contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000, or you can check our Repair Provider Lookup on our website, at http://www.lg.com/us/support/repair....
