Get a Spotless Clean the First Time

LG’s exclusive QuadWash™ technology gets dishes clean the first time. With four spray arms instead of just two, QuadWash™ uses Multi-Motion arms that rotate back and forth while spinning to power-clean dishes from multiple angles throughout the entire cycle.

Count On It

When you buy a dishwasher, you want something reliable that you can count on. Because the Direct Drive Motor uses fewer moving parts and operates more efficiently, LG confidently backs the motor with a 10-year warranty.

More Flexibility Means
No Dish Gets Left Behind

EasyRack™ Plus lets you fit more dishes, run fewer loads and make short work of after-dinner cleanup. With three height settings, the upper rack adjusts effortlessly and smoothly to make room for tall stemware on top or oversize pans below. Customizable tines offer greater flexibility for loading dishes without compromising performance.

LG's technological advances, like the Inverter DirectDrive motor and the advanced self-cleaning filtration system, were designed with quiet in mind. At 48dB, this dishwasher is among the quietest dishwashers in its class.

What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ease and simple to use My wife loves using it in the past she would generally do them by hand now she gets a little more R and R.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The racks are a literal nightmare The racks are a literal nightmare, they bend and can not hold weight making stacking is horrible. It cleans well, but the rack is absolutely not worth the hassle, there is NO WAY I would ever deal with a cheap flimsy rack like this again NO WAY! With out this rack it would have been 4 star, but it is so bad it is simply not worth the hassle. If LG doesn't recall these I would be surprised they are useless racks making the washer nearly unusable.

What soap pods do you recommend using with the LDF5545ST?

Asked by: KayF
Regrettably, we do not make any recommendations as to which detergent pods to use with the LG Front Control Dishwasher with QuadWash™ and EasyRack™ Plus, Model # LDF5545ST or with any of our Dishwashers. Dishwasher detergents fall into four types, single-dose units also known as pacs, tabs, and tablets, Gels, and Powders. Each will have different cleaning performances and their cleaning performances will also vary depending on the hardness of your water. You may want to check Consumer Reports to read their reviews of dishwasher detergents that they have tested and consider as being the best...^IFV

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.

Asked by: Kim Nilson
This dishwasher is faulty. Mine had the same issues but within warranty. LG had to replace the entire control panel. Now, one month after extended warranty has expired it’s doing it again and LG could care less. Clearly LG is aware of this issue with all of the same complaints. Terrible service.

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!

Asked by: Kevlanz
Ours just started having the same issue! How can we get support if we don't do twitter?

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
