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.

Get wise

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 231 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 2nd LG washer owned. The best yet! This machine is so quiet I can't tel if it's running standing in front of it unless I am not talking and listening carefully. It is the answer to my wife's kitchen prayers! No more closing the kitchen doors to watch TV in the house! Love the top rack only feature. It does great work. Five year old LG model in our old home induced us to by this one by example! July 9, 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 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 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

Answer: 
The dishwasher does not rely on a heating element for the drying process; instead, it relies on the heat that is retained by the dishes and the tub during the wash and rinse cycles to turn the moisture in the tub into humidity. Warm, moist air in the dishwasher is then pulled into a condensing duct in the door by a fan. The air then cools, which causes the humidity to condense. Room temperature air is also drawn into the duct to help the air cool down faster. When this moisture condenses into a liquid, it is drained out. Rinse aid is required to enhance the drying performance. If no rinse aid is used, water may remain on the dishes and the tub.

It appears that all of the tines on the upper level of the dishwasher move on the easyrack plus, but only 2 on the easyrack. What is the difference on the bottom level? I'm currently looking at the LDS5040WW and the LDS5540WW

LDS5040WW and the LDS5540WW
easyrack vs. easyrack plus

I have asked too many people this question and guess what: No One knows the Difference !

Lowes, HD, mom and pop stores, LG Customer Service doesnt even know the difference.

I am calling LG Tech support tomorrow.

It's $100 difference in price.

Is the word " Plus " with $100 now-a-days?

You got to laugh..

Answer: 
The LG Semi-Integrated Dishwasher with Flexible EasyRack™ Plus System, Model # LDS5540WW does have a filter, but it has a built-in soft food grinder and a self-cleaning 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 self-cleaning filter system continuously cleans the wash water as it circulates to separate any residue from the wash water. All dirt and residue easily wash down the drain...^IFV
