What people are saying
Rated 3 out of 5 by from LDS5540BB dishwasher odor I have had this dishwasher for a few years now and it stinks, as in has a bad odor, this started not long after purchase. Smells like fish or stinky feet. I use my dishwasher 1-2 times a week and if I don't pour bleach or vinegar in it pior to starting it the dishes will stink when done washing. Does not clean my silver wear well, always had to wash by hand after being washed in dishwasher, so no longer put in dishwasher. Dishes are wet due to no heating element. I have tried different detergents and with my water Finish works best. This dishwasher is quieter than others that I have had. Easy to use. I have other LG items that have worked great. TV 10+ years and Washing Machine 4 years

Does model LDS5540BB have a hard food disposer?

Asked by: Zayra
IT HAS A SOFT FOOD GRINDER. This is the text from the manual (you can download it in pdf format). "For best wash results, your LG dishwasher has a built-in soft food grinder and a selfcleaning filter. The grinder grinds up soft food and residue into small particles that can be caught in the filter and washed down the drain. The selfcleaning filter system continuously cleans the wash water as it circulates to separate any residue from the wash water. All dirt and residue easily washes down the drain."

Water inlet connection

This unit does not come with a Standard Water Intel Connection that can be changed to a larger or smaller size. Can this be modified with a LG Product.
Asked by: Cmiller
We appreciate your interest in this dishwasher and its connections. For those dishwashers the a Non-L Type Water Inlet Valve, behind the Toe Kick Plate, a 90 degree elbow will have to be added. The installation instructions for this component can be found in the installation guide, on page 9. The MATERIALS page (page 4) list this elbow piece as not included. It suggests a 90 degree elbow with 3/8” N.P.T external pipe threads.

Heating Element?

Does this model have a heating element that will heat the water if the water coming into the machine is not hot enough? Also, does this machine only dry by condensation?

how far does the door extend when opened

We have an L-shaped kitchen layout & need to know how far out the door extends when opened to determine if it will hit the side of our refrigerator.
