What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth the money Our dishwasher is barely 2 years old. The black stainless finish is coming off the front of the door and multiple prongs on both upper and lower racks have fallen off and are rusting. We paid a lot of money for these appliances and I would expect this kind of wear and tear on a 10-15 dishwasher.....not one that is not even 2 years old.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Difficult to read buttons without flashlight. Ok so I'm old. While every other feature of this dishwasher is wonderful to me, (it cleans so well, is so very adaptable! and interior is stainless which makes it easy to clean when I have to) the lack of backlighting on the buttons at the top of the door is frustrating to me. Without a flashlight (even in broad daylight, due to the countertop casting shadow) I can't read the buttons to know which to press for what I've put inside. This to me is a flaw. The company could have backlit all, with brighter light for selected button. If they fixed this, I would be raving over how great this dishwasher is. As it is, make sure you have a flashlight if you're older than 30, or a light strip just at the counter level.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Quiet Looks good and easy to use and cleans well. Only concern is that the soap dispenser is difficult to keep closed.

Bought this dishwasher 10 months ago and it has always had a strong burning asphalt odor coming from it during the dry cycle.  Is this normal or should I have it looked at by a serviceman?  I assumed it would eventually dissipate but it is still there.

Dishwasher has blue and green light flashing while running. What does this mean? Also, 1E flashing while running? What does this mean?

Asked by: Girlmom
We apologize about the issue you are having with the dishwasher. The IE error code indicates an water inlet problem. It is suggested to check for a clogged or kinked water inlet hose and check the water supply. If this is not the case, Please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 for further assistance.

How long is the drain hose that comes with the unit and what is the diameter of the drain outlet?

Asked by: Joe79
Although the Specifications for the LG Black Stainless Steel Series Top Control Dishwasher with TrueSteam®, Model # LDT9965BD do not list a length for the drain hose, the installation manual advises that the drain connection should not exceed 12 feet (3.65 m) distance to drain. If and extension drain is required, you should use a 5/8" or 7/8" inside diameter, 2-3 feet length hose and a couplet for connecting the two hose ends.The end of the drain hose has three different diameters, 5/8" (16 mm), 3/4" (19 mm) and 1" (25 mm)...^IFV

I recently bought the True Steam LG Dishwasher in black stainless. What kind of dishwashing detergent is recommended? Powder or gel? Packs or squeeze bottle?

Asked by: Cindy66
Neile did not understand your question.what is he talking about hand dishwashing liquid.  Let me help you.stay with a detergent that dissolves quickly so the ports don't clog up,like gel.
