What people are saying
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very Quiet Bought this when we moved into our house. Very happy with how quiet it was. After 3 years the racks have started to rust out. Aside from a 20 year old dishwasher we once had, this is a first for us. Replacement parts are expensive!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I hate this dishwasher and would never recommend it to anybody. All my appliances are LG and have no complaints about any of them except this dishwasher. The ledge that the bottom rack sits on is too narrow for the rollers and constantly falls off track which requires me to unload, put the rack back on track and reload before use. This dishwasher was not cheap. I have hard many brands over the years and never had this problem before. The episode last night was the last straw No more LG dishwashers for me

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice concept, but poorly engineered. Been using the product for a year and kept hoping it would grow on me. Nope. The bottom rack tends to fall off its rail and rusted after less than a year. The detergent compartment is too small for detergent pods. The toe kick is poorly aligned and the door catches on it when opened or closed. And for some reason they've done away with the "clean" light that most dishwashers had since the 90s. Oh, a light comes in when the cycle is done, but if you open the door the light goes off so my new, state-of-the-art dishwasher now has one of the "clean/dirty" magnets from the dollar store. I'm actually looking forward to the day it quits for good so I can justify getting another one.

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.
