What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kristen 2.0 I got this to replace my girlfriend as primary dishwasher. What can I say.... best purchase ever. We now have more time for other activities. Thank you LG.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice and quiet Not pleased with loading the dishes - the spikes fold down the minute something touches it and then the dishes fall down. can't find a good way to load the plates and small juice glasses. The glasses, silverware, and dishes are always clean

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Doesn't Dry This is my 3rd LG Steam Dishwasher. I had a wonderful experience with the first 2 dishwashers so I decided to purchase LG again. It washes well but will not dry the dishes. When I open the door after a cycle the inside of the door has water on it every time. If I close the door after emptying the clean dishes the water condensation doesn't go away....thus I have to leave it opened until it finally dries. The last thing I want to do is to deal with mold! I have been in touch with customer service to troubleshoot the problem but with no resolution thus far. This is my "final" home and I spared no expense to get items that I was confident would last for the rest of my lifetime. What a disappointment to be "stuck" with a dishwasher that doesn't operate correctly!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost perfect I have found only 2 issues. The silverware basket allows for food or cleaning solution to sit in the spot where it touches the basket on the utensil and dry. When you get your utensil out, it will have long streaks of dried cleaning solution on it. The utensil doesn't look clean, although it probably is. The basket is poorly designed in this way. The basket should be lower than the utensil mouth area so that this area is able to be fully cleaned without touching anything else. Also, for short utensils like a salad fork, the basket is ineffective at a proper placement place for short utensils. The second issue is that plates will fall over quite easily instead of standing upright as they are placed in between the tines. On a positive note, the unit is extremely quiet, very pretty inside and out, and has lots of options for dish placement. Fold down tines, 3rd rack, and ease of operation are best aspects of the unit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Touch of Class Just installed our new DW (purchased to match our new refrigerator) ... both black stainless. Remarkable coating - adds to the design of our kitchen. Top “tray” actually comes in very handy for sharp knives, small dishes. Silverware dividing top load baskets are handy. Sooooo quiet!!! Worth the $$$! Wish cycle panel on top of door was all illuminated when choosing cycle and that the cycle light would not flash while running.

Is it ok to use the dishwasher detergent tabs? We clean our dishes well before putting them in the dishwasher and they still don't come out clean. Are we doing something wrong?

Asked by: BusyMomof2
Regrettably, we can only advise that you follow the manufacturer's instructions for the use of the dishwasher detergent tablets in the LG Studio - Top Control Dishwasher with TrueSteam® Technology, Model # LSDF9969BD. Detergent tabs can deliver a greater performance when removing stubborn stains, they might also require a longer rinsing cycle to remove mineral deposits and do not offer the same flexibility of liquid gel or dishwasher detergent powder when it comes to precise measurements for different sizes of dishwasher loads. You may want to try dishwashing powder or dishwashing gel to compare the results and see which one better suites your needs...^IFV

Is the light supposed to continue blinking during the cycle!

Asked by: Curiously yiurs
We appreciate your interest in this dishwasher. If the unit is performing the cleaning operations properly, then the indicator lights are likely to be operating as designed.
