What People Are Saying

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Buy the extended warranty. This dishwasher lasted 15 months before the electronics went out. It is costing me half of the purchase price to fix it with the so called 5 year warranty on electronics. Worked great up to this point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent performance, worth every penny! Previously we owned a Samsung in the same price range. This LG dishwasher has outperformed that one in every single aspect. Dishes, bowls, deep cups, silverware, it all just comes out clean and dry! We own a 230lb English Mastiff, his food and water bowls often look like a Jackson Pollock painting after a week. We ran these through the turbo cycle (1hr) and they came out spotless! Our last dishwasher only lasted 4.5 years so we are hoping to get more out of this LG. But we have faith, we currently have a front load washer/dryer set that are coming up on 10 years running like champs! So with this in mind we literally just replaced our samsung refrigerator that died last week with an LG model: LSXS26326S. And as our other samsung appliances die off we will most likely continue to upgrade to LG!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Piece of Junk I bought this product a little over a year ago. Shortly after a year of owning this dishwasher, just as soon as the warranty went out, the dishwasher started shorting out (see video for details). I have had professional appliance repair men come out to check it out and both of the men said that connections and fuses are fine but couldn’t decipher the problem. The only thing they could think of doing is to replace the control panel which would cost around the same price of a new machine after parts and labor. I’ve also been in contact with LG about replacing this machine or parts of a fairly new product and they were not helpful at all. Don’t buy!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Unit even MORE terrible customer service. Horrible. Touch panel has gone out twice in 6 months for a know seal issue allowing condensation to short out the panel. Haven't had a dishwasher for the past 4 months. After a multitude of calls to LG still getting the run around. Will NEVER purchase anything made by this company again.

What is wrong or what type of a suggested fix is needed when in the middle of the cycle the machine flashes all lights on the control panel, no codes, stops working, and beeps? It even did this at the end of the cycle.

Had this dishwasher for a couple of months. In the past 2 weeks, it has intermittently stopped running. It starts making chime sounds randomly, and shuts off. Is this a known issue? It almost seems like buttons are being pressed, but they aren't. Help!

is this a plug in

Asked by: rontko
Operate this appliance with the correct voltage as shown in this manual and on the rating plate. Connect it to a dedicated, properly grounded branch circuit which is protected by a time delay fuse. Connect the appliance using 3-wires, including a ground wire. ^CP

Where is the heating element on a LG LDS5540st dishwasher.   Marilyn 

Asked by: MCRackley
Hi Marilyn. The LG Front Control Dishwasher with QuadWash™ and EasyRack™ Plus, Model # LDF5545ST does not rely on a heating element for the drying process; instead, it uses a Hybrid Drying System which 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...^IFV

Purchased this dishwasher less than a month ago. We have tried all recommended settings but cannot get the dishes to dry even the slightest bit. Any suggestions on what we might be doing wrong ? 

Asked by: Brandyaxid
Hi Brandyaxid. The drying performance of your LG Front Control Dishwasher with QuadWash™ and EasyRack™ Plus, Model # LDF5545BB works properly. It should be connected to a hot water supply with a temperature range between 120°F (49°C) and 149°F (65°C). This temperature range provides the best washing results and shortest cycle time. To prevent damage to dishes, the temperature should not exceed 149°F (65°C). s directly affected by the amount of heat that remains in the tub after the heated rinse is performed. If your dishwasher is far away from your home’s hot water heater, it may be necessary to run the hot water tap in the sink before starting a wash cycle, to ensure that cool water is purged from the hot water lines. This will ensure your dishwasher has a consistent supply of hot water from start to finish. Using the High Temp setting also aids in keeping the inner drum temperature and dishes hotter before drying begins. LG dishwashers are designed to be used in conjunction with a rinse aid. Using a rinse aid will maximize the amount of water that has already been sheeted away from the dishes before the dry cycle begins. If a rinse aid is used and the performance still needs a boost, adjust the amount of rinse aid used. 3 is the default setting, but if necessary set the level to 4 so more rinse aid is used. Water tends to bead rather than sheet off the plastic and nonstick surfaces, making them more difficult to dry. If washing plastic items in a Normal cycle, select the Extra Dry or Night Dry option or both for better drying results. When the rinse aid is empty, the Extra Dry or Night Dry options are selected automatically. Allow the dishwasher to completely finish the dry cycle before opening the door. If the door is opened in the middle of the dry cycle, the heat that is necessary for the hybrid dry system to work will escape. This will cause all of the dishes inside to remain wet once the cycle finishes...^IFV
