STEAM WASH, DON’T PRE-WASH

Powerful yet gentle TrueSteam™ virtually eliminates the need to pre-wash. The built-in TrueSteam™ generator also enables gentle cleaning for fragile items (like stemware), and can also be used for heavy-duty cleaning like pots and pans.

Easy Loading, Maximum Flexibility

The newly-enhanced EasyRack™ Plus system provides outstanding flexibility and convenience, adjusting to just about any load of dishes to help ensure optimal cleaning performance. Easy to adjust on-the-fly, this racking system can shift to handle any challenge your dishes can serve up.

Step Up to the 3rd Rack

Step Up to the 3rd Rack

The height adjustable 3rd rack gives you more space to fit everything from long flatware to small espresso cups.

Whisper-Quiet Operation

LG's technological advances, like the Inverter DirectDrive motor and the advanced 3-stage filtration system, were designed with quiet in mind. At 45dB, this dishwasher is among the quietest dishwashers in its class.

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 limited warranty.

Get wise

Smart Diagnosis helps the service center diagnose problems over the phone, helping you troubleshoot quickly.

What People Are Saying

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 163 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Dishwasher This dishwasher has plenty of space, adjusts nicely, cleans well, very quiet. I like the control panel and all the options. The cutlery basket could be designed differently. I am happy with this machine. July 11, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by DO NOT BUY!! PUMP FAILURES This is a defective model with known pump failure issues. LG tried to correct by inserting a new type of filter, but that effort also failed. Buyer beware. May 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quit and cleans to a smooth touch and shine Best part runs quite and does not cause the counter top to get hot Looks great and can adjust all the tines to match what you need to clean April 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sooooooo Quiet!! great options on partial or full load and delicate settings and very very quiet April 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by To me the quitest dish washer that I know of. We have used the dish washer and it has preformed very well it is quit cleans stubborn dishes and does a very good job on pots and pans. June 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by The only thing it doesn't do is load itself! This dishwasher does an outstanding job of cleaning and is so quite I had to look to see if it was running. My favorite feature of this product has to be the height adjustable top rack and the tines that fold down on both the top and lower rack giving it a great deal of flexibility. June 5, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice machine with some problems Bought this about 6 months ago and we use it daily. The last couple of days there has been a high pitched squeal and after some research found it is the sump motor. Called LG and they are sending out a technician no problem so am hoping they can solve the problem for me. Other than that it works well - every once in a while some areas of dishes do not get clean but I attribute that to stacking issues. Oh - and make sure that you clean the filters frequently as it really helps. May 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by best dishwasher It is very good dishwasher. Its worth the money. I have run every cycle on it. I put it through my own test. Passed with no problems. It runs at least twice a day sometimes more. Love the third rack. Holds a lot of dishes and pots. It cleans very well. I have been through a lot of dishwashers and this one is the best by far.I had to check it out when we first got to make sure it was runing. Thats how quiet it is. May 21, 2014

We're in the market for a new dishwasher. We are on well water that has a noticable iron and calcium content. Our water pressure is less than public water supply pressure. Our current dishwasher leaves a white film on dishes, glasses, and silverware. We've tried many detergents in liquid and pouch form with Jet Dry without success. How well will this dishwasher clean given these constraints?

Answer: 
I am not sure, but I would advise using a recommended dish washer soap and liquid rinse that is recommended for your appliance. I also use "Finish Jet Dry" that come in a small basket that is attached to the middle or upper rack (make sure it does not interfere with the fan blade rotation). That would give you double spot protection. I am happy with my LG product.

Answer: 
You can fix this problem only through filtration of your supply and adding a pressure tank. This will cost about $4K, but will save you in appliances, water heaters, and valves. I find it hard to believe your well system doesn't already have this in place. Maybe it is just in need of maintenance.

Answer: 
Other dishwashers use a 1 time water quantity of 6 liters, resulting in a total of maximum 38 liters used. However, LG dishwashers use a 1 time water quantity of 3.8 liters, resulting in a total of only 8-10 liters used. In case of hard water, it is necessary for additional water to be used to prevent the white spots. With our LG dishwashers, even if Extra Rinse is selected, it will use about 20 liters total. This means that even if Extra Rinse is added, LG dishwashers will use less water than other brands. Competitors who also manufacture energy efficient dishwashers are also experiencing the same claims. The only solution is to use additional water.

Thank you. We appreciate your feedback, please give us a “thumbs up” if this answer is helpful to you; and please let us know if we can assist you with anything else.

Have a lovely week!

The normal cycle is a little over 2 hours. The Quick/Dry cycle is a little over 1 hour and works great if you pre-rinse.

Answer: 
Not exactly answering the question, but I find that rubbing mineral oil (plain, cheap stuff you buy at the drug store) on my stainless products about once a month, it satisfies their need for oil and stops soaking up so many fingerprints.

Answer: 
I would need to check my warranty, but I would believe the warranty meets or exceeds competition. My LG is an excellent product and I will add that I have additional LG appliances: French door refrigerator, microwave, washer, dryer, both with pedestals and 2 LG Smart TV's. When I retired, I did much research and choose LG products, I am quite happy with my choice. I wish you luck with your search and decision. I have one last appliance to purchase for my kitchen, but I am undecided, only, because I am leaning from electric cookstove/oven to gas. I am researching my decision prior to purchase.

Answer: 
It's made in South Korea and it is pricey. However, I love mine. It is unbelievably quiet and I appreciate that. I have a sound studio in the basement of my home and loud appliances are not just annoying.

This machine is also brilliantly laid out. Somebody put considerable thought into making sure it would be easy to stack dirty dishes in such a way that they would be cleaned easily and thoroughly... and be easy to handle when you are putting them away.
