  • Welcome to the LG customer support channel.

  • Properly maintaining your LG dishwasher is important for best washing performance.

  • In this video we will give you a few tips and tricks to help maximize your dishwasher’s performance.

  • It is recommended that you periodically check and care for the spray arms, the filters, and if necessary the interior and exterior of your dishwasher.

  • Regular maintenance can prevent any build-up from occurring in the filters and the drains.

  • Depending on your usage, please use the recommended filter cleaning chart located in your dishwasher user’s manual to determine how often you should clean your filter.

  • If cleaning performance begins to decrease, you may need to clean the filter more often than recommended depending on your usage.

  • Please remember, filters should be cleaned using non-abrasive materials and warm running water.

  • For hard to remove soil, use a soft brush.

  • When loading your dishwasher, double check to make sure that all utensils are located inside of the bins and not protruding outward to the edges of your dishwasher.

  • This may cause leaks and performance issues if the utensils are caught in the door while your cycle is running.

  • Before you begin your dishwasher cycle, run hot water in your sink for a couple of minutes to ensure a higher water temperature for your dishwasher.

  • For best performance the recommended water temperature for your dishwasher is 120 degrees Fahrenheit.

  • To maintain the interior or exterior of your LG dishwasher, use a damp cloth or sponge to clean if necessary.

  • Please note that a cloudy film may form on the surface of the stainless-steel tubs when using hard water.

  • To remove hard water buildup in the tub, remove all dishes, silverware, and the silverware holder from your dishwasher.

  • Only the racks should remain in your dishwasher.

  • Fill a measuring cup with white vinegar, approximately 14 to 17 ounces.

  • And place the measuring cup in the lower rack.

  • Do not use detergent run a normal cycle and select extra rinse and hot rinse then close the door.

  • Make sure that you at the dishwasher complete the entire cycle.

  • This cleaning method should be done as needed.

  • As a final tip, if you were experiencing unwanted odors in your dishwasher operates a quick cycle with detergent without loading any dishes.

  • This should help to eliminate any odors.
