What People Are Saying

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.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's broken It's broken and the pictures for my model number on your site do not match the inside of my machine. I need to clean the filter, I think, but cannot figure out how. My play store will not allow me to download the LG diagnistic app. I'm on disability and cannot afford a repairman.
