Answer: 
Rear leg adjustment screws are on the front of the unit, by each of the front legs. Screws are connected to a worm drive that rotate the rear legs when twisted.
Right side raises the opposite direction of the left side since they are mirror images.
I believe right side was clockwise, and left side was counterclockwise.

One helpful thing to do is to test this before installing so you can verify they work correctly and confirm the direction you should twist each. When installed, lean the dishwasher forward to relieve pressure on the back feet so they raise more easily.

Customer service just told me that the manual is incorrect and that on this unit (bought at Lowes) one cannot adjust the rear legs? They instructed me to return it to the store ...

Answer: 
We regret the inconvenience you have experienced in this matter. Locate the back feet of the dishwasher. There should be a small, box housing around the adjustable legs. On the back of this “box” should be a Phillips-head screw. This screw should be that which is needed for adjusting the rear legs. If you still have difficulty, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000.

I wash a lot of baby bottles, which require tines on the top rack of the dishwasher. Are there no tines on the top rack?

Answer: 
No, there are plenty of tines. There are lots of ways to adjust the tines and racks to your liking. That is one the things I really like about this dishwasher.

This model has tines on both wracks. The tines can be adjusted up or down.

We appreciate your feedback, please give us a “thumbs up” if this answer is helpful to you; and please let us know if we can assist you with anything else.

Have a lovely weekend!

Answer: 
I think it is stainless. The strip at the top is the only part you need to touch when operating and opening it, so it's easy to keep clean. I used the aerosol stainless spray like twice in the month I've had the dishwasher and it looks great. I don't have little kids though!

Rinse Cycle

I know the quick wash is the shortest wash cycle, but I don't see a simple rinse on those days/nights that the dishwasher isn't quite full enough to run, but dishes still need to be rinsed......So question... Is there a rinse cycle or a way to just rinse the dishes???

Answer: 
Remember dishwashers are not scrubbers and only rinse dishes. It is recommended to always scrub and rinse as much debree from all dishes prior to loading.

Answer: 
I apologize, but no; this dishwasher does not have a RINSE ONLY cycle available. It does, however, have an UPPER ONLY cycle which will allow washing for only the upper rack of dishes, instead of a full cycle.

Answer: 
It should not do this. You either have a wiring problem in your house, it's a bad GFCI, or it's bad wiring in your dishwasher. I would consult an electrician to diagnose, then contact LG if it is their unit.

Contact LG directly if you have issues like this instead of posting a question online that may take a while for someone to answer. Safety is important and a problem like this could be the symptom of a potentially serious problem.

Answer: 
Have a service technician and check you appliance. Also, when arranging for the technician to come out ask have the technician check your GFCI recepticle as it too can be bad. Replace or repair what is deficient.

Answer: 
If you are not comfortable, have an electrician check the junction box in the front of the machine behind the toe-kick. I noticed while installing our dishwasher that the electrical wires come into the junction box without any grommet. I added one because there is a chance the insulation on the wiring got cut and a short maybe occurring. Also, check for water in that area - there maybe a leak under the dishwasher.

QUIET…THERE’S A GENIUS AT WORK
Thanks to LG’s brilliant LoDecibel™ Operation, you can look forward to a dishwasher that’s among the quietest in its class. The 48dB rating might not mean much to you, but to your ears it’s pure nirvana. Since it has fewer moving parts, LG’s exclusive Inverter DirectDrive motor ensures “tip-toe” quiet load after load…along with utmost operating efficiency. No surprise, our motor is backed with a limited 10-Year Warranty. And that’s something to shout about!
