What People Are Saying

Rated 2 out of 5 by from High expectations fell flat I always hate leaving negative reviews, so I'll start with the positive. The dishwasher looks great, and it's very quiet. I love the Easyrack Plus system for easily cleaning large items. Now on to the bad. When I spent this amount of money, I expected a much better product. Even under the extra dry setting, the dishes are always still wet, and I have to dry them before storing them in my cabinets. The buttons are a poor design. I have accidentally turned it off mid-cycle several times because the way the buttons are located. Even with the lock, the power button doesn't lock, so it's very easy to hit it and turn it off, and you can't start off where you left off. Also, it doesn't tell you if the dishes are clean, so if you don't unload them immediately and forget, as I tend to do sometimes, or if someone else comes along, there's no way to know if they are clean or dirty. Most times they are dirty, even after running a cycle. I clean my dishes pretty well before I load them, but even still this does not clean well at all. I can't tell you how many times I've had to rewash dishes after running them through this dishwasher. Very very disappointed in this brand new and very expensive dishwasher. My older cheaper one did a much better job.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Quiet but smells and doesn't wash well It's super quiet but I'm not happy with the quality of the wash. Coffee stains never get off my white caps no matter which cycle I use. But the most important problem - the plastic front panel gets very hot and smells badly. It appears to be a common problem. It looks like the plastic is very cheap. I'm trying to fix it somehow myself (because LG doesn't care) but if I cannot find a solution I will have to replace it even though it's only 1 year old. I's been used at least 200 times over the last year but the smell is still here. It's bad.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from My dishes do not stand up in the rack during wash I bought this dishwasher 6 months ago and cannot keep my dishes to remain in an upright position during the wash cycle. The dishes have chipped because of the racks. I will research the LG site to see if they have new racks. If not, I will buy a new dishwasher. It is quiet but I cannot accept my dishes being chipped because the racks cannot hold the dishes upright. I was a LG fan up to now. The dishwasher racks need to be redesigned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So quiet! This dishwasher holds a ton of dishes and is so quiet that I find myself checking it to make sure it is running!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
