What people are saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cleans well however bottom rack has rusted The steam controls really clean well. The bottom rack had rusted however and expecting a replacement part from LG. Unfortunately it was like pulling teeth for LG to replace it. Hopefully it will arrive soon.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rust heaven I bought this dishwasher 4 years ago and have replaced the racks 3 times due to rust. Thank goodness I purchased an extended warranty. The help line people informed me that the reoccurring rust on the racks is due to a design flaw. Buyer beware!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great overall dishwasher I bought this 4 years back. Been so happy with the overall quality.

How dry should my dishes be after a wash cycle with the drying option selected? It never has given us truly dry dishes since we bought it about a month ago. 

Asked by: Amy626
Rinse aid is strongly recommended to enhance the drying performance of the LG Top Control SteamDishwasher™ w/ 3rd Rack, Model # LDF8874ST. In order to be more energy efficient, the hybrid drying system does not utilize a heating element in order to assist in drying, so a rinse aid plays an integral role in the drying process. If a rinse aid is not used, water may remain on the dishes and the tub. Rinse aid will help to ensure that the majority of the water has been sheeted off of the dishes at the end of the rinse and that the load is ready for the dry cycle. If a rinse aid is used and the performance still needs a boost, adjust the amount of rinse aid used by the indicator on the rinse aid cap. 4 is the default setting, but if necessary, set the level to 5 so more rinse aid will be used. Drying performance is also 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 Sanitary Rinse setting will also aid in keeping the inner drum temperature and dishes hotter before drying begins. Allow the dishwasher to completely finish the dry cycle before opening the door. If the door is opened mid 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

What do the lights on the front of the dishwasher mean?

Asked by: Steve j
When a cycle is running, the SignaLight indicators will illuminate for the active stage: Model with 4 LEDs: WASH – RINSE – DRY – CLEAN; Models with 2 LEDs: OPERATING – CLEAN; Models with 1 LED: OPERATING (Flickering) / CLEAN (Lighting). Once the cycle is complete, the CLEAN light will illuminate for four minutes.

I am very sorry!! But I am not happy with my 3rd rack being divided in two pieces. There is any way of I get a single piece rack like the other brands? 

Asked by: Mfics
I apologize, but no; this dishwasher is designed to utilize only this particular design of cutlery rack. The design is such that one side can have its height adjusted, without having to do the same to both. This information can be noted on page 20 of your Owner’s Manual.

A box lights up around each control button on the control panel, but the actual text commands do not light up so I can't read them. Is there; 1) an on/off or dimmer for the text; 2) a problem, or; 3) a feature (the way it's designed)? It's brand new.

Asked by: MichaelJM1960
We appreciate your interest in this dishwasher and its features. The description given is normal operation. The text of these buttons is not designed to be lit; rather the outline of the buttons are all that will shine.

How does the stemware fit

Asked by: Doss2063
We appreciate your interest in this dishwasher. Stemware will typically be arranged on the upper rack. The upper rack should be adjustable in height, depending upon the need of more room.
