What people are saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not good quality LG should stick with TV's--Spent a huge amount of $$ on all new appliances, after 6 years had to replace refrigerator and now the dishwasher is rusted out to the point I can no longer use. LG appliances are not made to last at all. Their customer service is a call center that offers literally no help at all...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from LDT9965BD Dishwasher This was the best dishwasher LG offered at the time, complete with steam and every other bell and whistle (and came in beautiful black stainless steel). The dishwasher still works great, but now after 5 years the baskets are rusting in places. Really? We've had cheaper dishwashers than this that didn't rust after twice that amount of time. I contacted support and it doesn't seem they will do anything for us since the warranty just ran out. Figures that we would discover this just after the warranty, but I'm pretty sure this started within the warranty period. Bad on us for not inspecting it sooner.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The wires have burned through on the middle rack. I bought 5 LG appliances and have had trouble with 3 of them. The salesman said they have less trouble with LG than any other brand. I have not found that to be true.

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
