What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Dishwasher I bought this dishwasher approximately 6 1/2 years ago and it is still running great. It is fairly quiet, especially for an older model and it does everything it is supposed to do. I am having a problem now due to hard water in my area. I have cleaned the filters in the past but recently I have attempted to clean the filters and one of them won't come clean, as of right now there is no replacement part available. This is giving me an error code for clogged filters and isn't allowing my dishwasher to run properly. This LG Part # MDJ62185601 doesn't seem to be available anywhere. I searched LG and they don't even have it. Other sites carry ALL of the other parts I have researched, including other filter parts but no one seems to have this part. Why is that?? We are happy with this dishwasher so far........ but this is becoming a real issue. I read the booklet and used the vinegar as suggested but that is only a temporary fix. HELP !!!!!!!!!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Owner for 6 years We bought this six years ago. I have had called the repairman once...although I don't remember exactly what the issue was. Whatever it was must have been fairly minor and has not repeated. Overall the dishwasher has been fine. I like that it is very quiet. I like the washing cycles and that it is programmable. I do not like the flexible racks....they do not stay up on their own. This happened within 3 years. They also rusted at the joints where they bend within 2 years or less. I am not sure that any energy efficient item cleans amazing but overall for the average person its fine. I am not replacing mine until it completely gives out. .

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not spend your money on this! You were warned! At 2.5 years old the machine will give error codes saying there is a problem with the pump. I called customer service, they did what they call the 'easy diagnostic' and the response we got was its either the pump or the control board. Pump was changed and still doing the same now waiting on the control board to see if it will work. It also takes a lengthy 4.5 hours to run a load. Junk...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from failing parts Loud and whiny, sump pump is going and super expensive to fix relative to cost of dishwasher. I have already replaced the drain pump as well. top rack coating is coming off and rusting through.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Getting Very Frustrated Ok so maybe poor isn't the best choice for this, but after 2 and a half years of running flawlessly the dishwasher has now become somewhat of a nightmare and joke. The dishwasher threw a FE error code in January 2019, could not get the error code to clear so we had it repaired. 2 weeks later it stopped washing properly, called the repair place again. this time they had to diagnose the issue first, then order parts. Parts came in, repair guy starts doing the repair, can't finish because he needs another part. At this point we are now in at the beginning of March. New parts again show up, repair guy was here yesterday. replaced the sump pump, the main board, and another part that i can't think of. Ran the dish washer last night and low and behold another error code (nE) shows up. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cleans well when it's not broken Our dishwasher is only three years old and we have had to fix it three times already. We like it when it's working--it cleans well and dries exceptionally well, but we will be buying a new, non-LG dishwasher just to avoid future errors. Our new LG oven is also already having errors.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from LDS5540BB dishwasher odor I have had this dishwasher for a few years now and it stinks, as in has a bad odor, this started not long after purchase. Smells like fish or stinky feet. I use my dishwasher 1-2 times a week and if I don't pour bleach or vinegar in it pior to starting it the dishes will stink when done washing. Does not clean my silver wear well, always had to wash by hand after being washed in dishwasher, so no longer put in dishwasher. Dishes are wet due to no heating element. I have tried different detergents and with my water Finish works best. This dishwasher is quieter than others that I have had. Easy to use. I have other LG items that have worked great. TV 10+ years and Washing Machine 4 years [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
