What People Are Saying

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 201 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best dishwasher I've ever owned We needed to replace a dishwasher that came with the home we bought last year, which was less than 10 years old. I had to re-wash glasses and dishes frequently! Frustrated,because the last few years with a couple of moves, every dishwasher was garbage. I researched to narrow down my choices in a price range that fit our budget and came to the LG brand. We bought it and had it delivered the next day. Being somewhat handy, my husband and I did our own installation (not a difficult thing to do) and since then I have been thrilled with the results! Clean dishes and glassware, easy loading and flexibility with the fold down tines, and plenty of room on top rack to even put my wine glasses. Since we were made aware by the salesman of the importance of using a rinse-aid for thorough drying, something I used anyway, my dishes and glasses come out dry, something I couldn't say about the top-rated brand dishwasher that we had installed in one home about 10 years ago. The operation is so very quiet and the ease of use is great. Since I usually run my dishwasher during the night, to conserve energy, I haven't worried about the length it runs, but love the timer that tells you how much longer the cycle has to go. Now I am looking forward to the new LG range and microwave to be delivered later this week, to replace the range of another popular brand that, although it functions fine, the flaw in the door handle design has caused the handle to come off in the middle of baking! Not a fun thing to deal with! So, eagerly looking forward to this new, top-rated LG range and the microwave to go with the new dishwasher. Bring on the fall and holiday baking season! July 29, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Disappointed The racks seems to be arranged in a strange manner that does not give more room. Additionally, the washer seems to trap food odors from dishes sitting in it that it stinks up the house if we left it even slightly open...not very happy about the smell and the capacity. July 24, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by This dishwasher is really quiet. I'm pleased with the purchase of this dishwasher. It is extremely quiet. I have the top rack lowered, this enables larger items to fit with no problem. The only issue I have is that dinner plates placed in the bottom of the dishwasher will fall forward if the rack isn't pushed in smoothly. I think the tines are a little too short. However, I would definitely recommend this product. It holds a lot of dishes and cleans well. July 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love It!! I have the refrigerator, dishwasher and next will be the stove!!! I love LG. July 9, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Probably would not purchase again I'm a little disappointed in this dishwasher. Our tall glasses easily tip over on the top rack and they are not getting as clean as I would like. On the bottom rack, if tall plates are lined up and then touched lightly,they all lean over and you must re-position them. These features are very annoying. July 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Extremely Pleased. Excellent dishwasher and the price was just right. Lots of features to get your dishes clean. Really like the adjustable shelves and rack spaces. Very very quiet as compared to others we either owned or looked at. Easy to install. Very easy to keep clean. July 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product has all we need. We love our dishwasher cos' it gave us the service we need in having our dishes perfectly clean with a quiet performance. The futures it offers are super convenient for the hard job of getting the dishes clean. We'll widely recommended to everybody, specially to our friends. July 5, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very good washer, for the money... Pleased with appearance and low noise. Dishes and pans very clean. Cycles tend to be longer than typical, and this uses more electricity. "Flexible" racks are rather weak, and drop down often. Silverware rack holds utensils awkwardly, though serviceable. July 5, 2014

Answer: 
The stainless steel dishwasher has no drying option. The heat from washing is absorbed by the dishes and they dry on their own. So far, for me, this has worked great!

Answer: 
There is no heating element in this machine. It drys using the heat of the dishes (from hot water) and suction. I put my plastic cups on the bottom rack when there is no room left on top. They are fine (not melted).

Ours takes about 2 hours to do a normal cycle wash. There is a quick cycle that is considerably less time. The longest, strongest cycle took 4 hours to run, but we only did it right after installation.

Answer: 
I just got one and HAD to get the install package. Which should really have been rolled into the price if its compulsory. Perhaps its because I had it installed rather than doing it myself. I would recommend you put in new because plastic gets old and cracks, and you don't want a flood.

Is there a manual or a Quick Info for this product?

We did not receive any instructions from Home Depot. For every cycle we tried so far, the machine goes on for hours and beeps and stops until you open the door. Should the machine take 2-3 hours to clean dishes?

I'm sure if you went to the link in the other answer you found out there is no manual to download for this dishwasher. It just says not available for this model. I wrote this response for others like myself that have been trying to find owners manual. I've tried and tried to approach this from various areas where it has a link for manual but it takes me to same screen which has specs and energy download but spot for manual says not available, just great LG
