This product cleans really well.
I usually use the quick wash feature and it cleans really well. It is very quiet . I like the silverware basket with individual places for the silverware which allows better cleaning than my previous washer. The only thing I do not like is the upper rack sections for glasses. Wine glasses tend to fall over and are not very securely positioned.

We bought this LG dishwasher because it was supposed to be efficient and quiet. The first time we used it, a burning odor filled the kitchen (and half of the house). Online research confirmed there was an issue with this and supposedly it would go away after 25 cycles. We had not had it a month when it began making a grinding noise and an "FE" error... it also made a high shrill noise and we initially had the Geek Squad from Best Buy come to check it out. They couldn't find anything wrong during their visit (of course) but a day later... the same thing was happening again. We contacted LG repair service and they sent out an "authorized, specially trained by LG" technician. AUDIO VISUAL (the LG "specially trained LG technicians" in the area) stated that there were known problems with the FE error code, the odor and the noises and said they would order the parts and likely install them in less than a week. They also said if the odor did not go away, the entire dishwasher assembly (with the exception of the shell) would have to be replaced. They were true to their word, but now 1) there is still a strong odor (and it has been more than 35 cycles to date) and 2) the dishwasher is VERY LOUD to the degree we cannot hear the TV in the other room while it is running. We are contacting LG again and are hopeful it will be repaired or replaced OR get a full refund!!!!!

Amazing at getting dishes clean!!
Purchased for a new kitchen remodel. Old dishwasher (not LG) was 10 years old and very loud . What a world of difference, I don't even hear it run. It does a fantastic job getting even the baked on grime off the dishes and bake ware. The only downside is when it's finished, there is only a song that plays, no light on the display to remind you the dishes are done.

LG - LDS5540ST Dishwasher. Very Good to Excellent
Bought LG-LDS5540ST on recommendation of both our appliance repair professional as well as the appliance sales person at the store. I removed our old dishwasher, and installed the LG myself. Installation was very easy and took only a few minutes. The first time we used it we were impressed by how quiet it is. We are a family of six and do a load everyday. It washes the dishes very well and is much larger (inside) than our old washer. This is our first LG product and we will be buying more! This comes highly recommended.
