Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quiet good job cleaning This dishwasher was delivered 3 weeks ago and I have used it 3 times. It does a good job cleaning, but dishes do not dry completely. I haven't used the top shelf. I do like that it is quiet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Dishwasher The quad cleaning heads do a much better job in cleaning than the Bosch dishwasher it replaced. Love the all stainless steel interior is right and the adjustable second shelf make cleaning stemware a breeze

Our LDF5545 top rack has rusted terribly (the vinyl coating peeled away in several locations). The bottom rack has just started rusting in one spot. Are replacements covered by the 10 yr warranty. If not, where can I purchase LG manufactured replacements?

does this dishwasher have adjustable feet? What is the maximum height with the feet fully extended?

Asked by: bruce141414
The leveling feet for the LG Front Control Dishwasher with QuadWash™, Front Control Dishwasher with QuadWash™ Model # LDFN4542S are adjustable. The dishwasher is designed to fit into base standard kitchen cabinets that have a height of 34 1/2" (36" with the countertop). The dishwasher has a height of 33 5/8" so it can be adjusted to 34 1/2" but there is a noise dampening blanket on the top of the dishwasher...^Ivan

Is there anyway this machine can run the complete cycle in less than  2 hours and 30 min. My old machine completed in 1 hour .  This machine is suppose to be energy efficient but not at 2.5 hours 

Asked by: Ivanaspenne
Even if it takes 2.5 hours, the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG Front Control Dishwasher with QuadWash™, Model # LDFN4542S is still more energy efficient that your older dishwasher that completed wash cycles in an hour because the newer Energy Star standards are much more stringent than older standards. You can check the Energy Star Certification for this dishwasher in Canada for this unit if it is sold in Canada. Depending on the soil level of your dishes, the Turbo Cycle has a run time of 60 - 121 minutes, the Express Cycles has a run time of 34 - 104 minutes. The actual running time and cycle time displayed on the dishwasher's display may change depending on options chosen, soil level, water temperature, and hardness of water. Therefore, the display time and actual running time can be different....^Ivan

After installation, Is the dishwasher suppose to be proud of the kitchen cabinetry front face or countertop? Or, if installed correctly is the dishwasher FLUSH with the cabinets face?

Asked by: Hines
Like all other dishwashers, the LG Front Control Dishwasher with QuadWash™, Model # LDFN4542S is designed for installation in standard base kitchen cabinets. Standard base kitchen cabinets have a depth of 24" and if you look at the W x H x D dimensions for the LDFN4542S in its specifications on its product detail page on our site, its depth is listed as 24 5/8", so if installed correctly, it will be flush with your base kitchen cabinet. That 5/8" is barely noticeable...^Ivan

Does this dishwasher have a self cleaning filter?

Asked by: MRK6
The LG Front Control Dishwasher with QuadWash™, Model # LDFN4542S does not have a self-cleaning filter. The assembled filters have to be cleaned manually with a soft brush under running water to remove food residue caught in filters to prevent the build-up of odor-causing bacteria and possible drainage problems then reassembled before reinstalling them. It is recommended that you clean the filters after each load. If food debris remains in the filter, it may cause an odor. In areas with hard water, the filters should be cleaned at least once a month with a soft brush. There is a Recommended Filter Cleaning Schedule in the owner's manual that advises when to clean the filters depending on your number of loads per week...^Ivan

What does error code 42 mean. The dishwasher chimes and flashes 42 near the ending of the normal and Auto cycle. I think it may mean 42 minutes are left in the cycle?

'42' is not an error code. The digital display on the control panel shows the ESTIMATED cycle time. When the cycle and options are selected, the display shows the total estimated time to complete those selections. During operation, the display shows the remaining estimated operating time...^Ivan
