LG’s technological advances, like the Inverter DirectDrive motor and an advanced self-cleaning disposer system, were designed with quiet in mind. At 48dB, this dishwasher is among the quietest dishwashers in its class.

It's unlikely you'll experience any problems with your LG dishwasher, but if you ever do, this feature helps the service center diagnose problems over the phone, or with a smart phone app, helping you minimize costly, inconvenient service calls.

What People Are Saying

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 229 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Some features are not designed well. This machine seems to get dishes clean, but does not dry dishes unless the sanitary option is used. The racks in this machine are poorly designed. The lower rack prongs are to close together and dishes want to fall over when loaded. We had to buy a new set of thinner dishes to have any hope of the dishes standing up. Even the new dishes will easily fall forward. The design of the upper rack limits the number of glasses and cups that can be loaded compared to our old machine. This is a major issue for us. August 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Can't beat this quality! I like the black color + it runs very quiet. Everything is great except the running time. Most of the time it runs for 2-3.5 hrs. August 2, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Extremely quiet. This dishwasher is very easy to load/unload. I am extremely pleased at how quiet the unit is. August 17, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Didn't last a week I am a HUGE LG fan. In my old home, I had all LG appliances, LG phones, tablets, TV's and BD players. This one appliance has made me re-think my loyalty to LG. The dishwasher worked awesome for a week then the ever popular LE code popped up. Google this code and others, you will see there are a lot of error codes for LG's dishwashers. LG even lists it in the literature that accompanies the dishwasher. I have called both LG and Lowes and now I have to wait almost two weeks for a repair man to come out. So in the interim I have a 700 piece of junk sitting in my kitchen. I was planning on buying a new LG refrigerator, washer and dryer but I will re-think this before I make that purchase. Too bad it seems their quality has gone down hill since I first fell in love with LG. Maybe I am the exception but there are a lot of poor /bad reviews out there about LG's products now. Very disappointed. August 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by very quiet and spacious This unit is so quiet you could keep it in your bedroom and the large cabinet allows for tall items on the upper shelf. August 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quiet This is the quietest dishwasher we have ever owned in 40 years. August 1, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Some nice features, very attractive and quiet Installed dishwasher door leaked on first run, second run it did not pump water out, at this time we requested a new dishwasher and it was supplied. Second dishwasher seems to be fine. I hope this continues. August 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by So quiet! So quiet, the only way you know its running is when the music plays when it finishes. July 29, 2015

Answer: 
IT HAS A SOFT FOOD GRINDER. This is the text from the manual (you can download it in pdf format).

"For best wash results, your LG
dishwasher has a built-in soft
food grinder and a selfcleaning
filter. The grinder grinds
up soft food and residue into
small particles that can be
caught in the filter and washed
down the drain. The selfcleaning
filter system continuously
cleans the wash water as
it circulates to separate any residue from the wash water. All dirt
and residue easily washes down the drain."

Answer: 
We appreciate your interest in this dishwasher and its connections. For those dishwashers the a Non-L Type Water Inlet Valve, behind the Toe Kick Plate, a 90 degree elbow will have to be added. The installation instructions for this component can be found in the installation guide, on page 9. The MATERIALS page (page 4) list this elbow piece as not included. It suggests a 90 degree elbow with 3/8” N.P.T external pipe threads.

Heating Element?

Does this model have a heating element that will heat the water if the water coming into the machine is not hot enough? Also, does this machine only dry by condensation?
