Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sawdoc57 This Dishwasher CLEANS dishes
So far after installing this dishwasher myself and using it I can report that it cleans dishes very well and leaves them dry (even the plastics which used to be soaking wet) and without using a heating element. I do not immediatly empty the dishwasher for several hours because of the schedual we work. We are very happy with it so far and it is so quiet that there is no need to turn up TV or run it when we leave the house like we did with the old dishwasher. The Home Depot delivery guys were prompt and very helpful and careful in bringing in the new dishwasher and taking out the old one. The price was very competitive as well and I did a lot of research on the different products offered out there and I made a sound choice.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by wjwest Another good product from LG
Dishwasher looks great inside and outside. Nice stainless steel tub inside. Both top and bottom racks are very customizable, between changing the angle of some of the tines to laying others flat and adjusting the height of the top rack.
Controls seem to get stuck a little but not so much that you're concerned you're breaking something (we'll see how that pans out over time). Plays a little tune when you press the power button and gives plenty of options for how to wash the dishes. The extra options are a little hard to read sometimes but it doesn't take long to learn which ones are which without having to read them.
Overall everything comes out great although I do feel like the cycle times are a bit long. I have noticed that like other people have said it's best to run the "extra dry" cycle to really get all the water out. Otherwise I've noticed many dishes still feel "damp" if you will. Otherwise runs super quiet much better than our old one that sounded like an aircraft taking off and plays a nice little jingle when it's done with the cycle.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Simurbom Good, but not great
I bought this to replace a basic GE dishwasher. In comparison this cleans better and hold significantly more dishes. It is also more quite and I like the hard food disposer. The downside is that it takes a lot longer for a load to wash and I am always having issues with the bottom rack coming off track when heavy dishes are loaded. It drives me crazy!!
I wasn't there during the install, but the installer put it in crooked and said he had to because of the cord placement in the back. This is not true.
Also, the paint on the control panel is rubbing off on the corners. LG gave me the option to have the unit replaced or to take a credit. I opted for the credit since it isn't that noticeable, unless you get really close, and I have had issues with replacement of other goods purchased and didn't want the headache.
I love the half load option, but wouldn't let that sway my decision to buy a different brand next time.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Load14598 Front Control >:/
*can fit nearly a sinks worth of well organized dishes
*makes cool sounds
*pretty loud thought there was a truck sitting outside my home that wouldn't leave
*geez! the front controls. i don't know if its just the layout of my kitchen, but seems everyone tends to lean against the counter right where the dishwasher is. And what's the big deal you ask? the power button gets pushed by someones hip or rear and BAMM, mid way through the cycle its off and you've gotta start all over again.
*does not have a "rinse only" option which i feel is needed for those times the wash is nearly done and it accidentally gets turned off
*never had a dishwasher that showed the remaining time but i feel like 2hrs 47min is an excessive amount of time, and the quick wash is 1hr and 24min. This is without heated dry. unsure of the time with that added on as we don't use that option.
and as i sit here writing this i'm thinking that maybe that's what the "lock" option is used for. to prevent mid wash stops. so i will try this with my next load of dishes

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hugh very quiet, lot's of room inside.
racks took some getting use to. wash cycle over two hours!! Easy to use. Compact height allows more flexibil installs when replacing older style dishwashers. Looks good.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DDawson I would not recomend LG dishwashers.
I bought one of these less than 2 years ago, at first it was great, quiet and did a good job of washing dishes. Within a year the noise level increased, and we only use it twice a week.
It now leaks and did damage to my flooring as a result, the reason why it leaked is the hose the factory uses is very thin and poorly made.
LG could have spent maybe a dollar per dishwasher on better quality hose but LG chose to use poor quality materials.
The wall thickness of the hose that failed is .009 of an inch, that is 3 times the thickness of a sheet of paper.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by PamF Worst purchase ever
I bought this dishwasher new. It lasted three years and is now ready for pick up by waste management because the repair would require a complete tear down. We thought it was the electronic boards but it wasn't nor was it the power control board. The dishes never got really clean and always had to use extra spot remover. My repair person said by a Bosch instead.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by livingfree2 Don't buy this dishwasher
We purchased this dishwasher when it was around $700.00, chose it over a Bosch because of the style. There are only 2 of us at home so we use it daily but it is not over-used, yet after 18months the heater element burned out. It does not heat water or dry and the only cycle that works is the 'Quick cycle'. Our dishes come out wet and not entirely clean. Big mistake buying this. Around the same time we also purchased an LG big screen TV, it had defective audio and speakers. Will never buy another LG product. This dishwasher is a real disappointment.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Andi Unbelievably quiet dishwasher.
I've always hated the loudness of a dishwasher but this particular model is AWESOME. So quiet you can carry on a conversation standing in front of it while it washes without missing a word. Would definitely buy again. Very easy to install too.

So at this point we have replaced the motor, drain motor assy., control panel, AC pump motor,relay pcb,the heating element, and now the motor is out again! Yes you can buy an LG dishwasher if you want to wash dishes by hand , and get to know the repair guys by first name .

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Sandygyrle Bottom basket falls out of grooves
Have used this for 4 months and consistently the bottom basket when pulled out onto the turned down door is troublesome to push back into the dishwasher. I have even had others do this to see if I was pulling it out too far or at some odd angle and they too concur that it's a design flaw. The tines on the bottom basket do not stay in the upright position very well. Additionally I had no idea the wash cycles would be so lengthy. 2+ hrs to do a normal load is unacceptable in my opinion. I would not recommend this to anyone for the money you spend.

The dishwasher started falling apart 3 days after it was installed. The unit has poor quality of construction and it does not clean very well.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Diane Not what i thought
The inside is terrible the plates fall over each other and so do the glasses and they don't get clean. The normal cycle takes 21/2 hrs. The inside is poorly designed. I wish I had read the reviews before I bought it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Prof77 Such high hopes.....
It seems like this dishwasher is either phenomenal or horrible. Ours was horrible. After just 2 weeks, we got the dreaded LE error code. Repair guy said it was the motor and pump. We used it maybe 5 to 7 times, and really liked it. Dishes were clean, and the machine was very quiet.
Luckily it was within the return window, so we opted to return for a different machine. Home Depot was great with the return and exchange, it was very easy.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Wildblu Very disappointed
I purchased this dishwasher last year and I will say that at first I was really impressed with the overall performance. Recently, and shortly after the warranty ran out, the dishwasher began to fail. At first I discovered standing water after a load was finished. I ended up replacing the vario motor. Then shortly after I saw the HE fault on the front display for a bad heater circuit. Whether I purchased a lemon of a unit or it is a testimony to LG products in general, I can say that I do not plan on buying LG appliances in the future.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PQNQ Decent Dishwasher for the price
The machine so far works well. It is very quiet compared to our last machine. I would prefer a machine that has the option for a heated dry cycle. The use of jell pack type dishwashing soap is marginal, and we plan on switching to a hard block type (Finish brand) next and try that since we had good results with it on our last dishwasher. Overall the quality of the product appears to be good to excellent. Not to thrilled about the time it takes to go through a complete wash cycle.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bongobreath Don't Buy!
We bought this dishwasher from Home Depot on 1-3-2014 and have had it for 2 years. We can say without any reservation whatsoever that after 2 years, our experience with this dishwasher has been terrible.
1) The wash cycle does not clean dishes, you have to completely pre-wash the dishes before you put them in the unit.
2) Even using the rinse aid, which LG recommends, the dishes are still wet.
3) The bottom rack constantly comes off it's track, especially when the rack is full.
4) The cleaning cycle is over 3 hours.
Yes the Dishwasher is very quiet and yes the dishwasher is Direct Drive so the motor will last a lifetime, BUT what good is that is the dishes are never dry and you have to spend time pre-washing to get clean dishes? Defeats the purpose of a dishwasher.
PLEASE don't make the same mistake we did, DON'T BUY this dishwasher. Here's is what we have learned:
1) Buy a dishwasher with a heating element if you want truly dry dishes. (Some units give you the option to turn-on the heating element when you start the cleaning cycle.)
2) Buy a dishwasher with racks on roller bearing tracks; the racks stay on their respective tracks.
3) Buy a dishwasher with "extra" water jets so the dishes truly get clean without excessive pre-wash.

Very easy to install as a replacement to our existing dishwasher. Very quiet operation...don't even notice it's running. Cleans dishes well. As a returned item the price was deeply discounted making it an excellent value.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by RobF1234 Go with a brand with better customer service
We bought this dishwasher from HD to compliment out new LG oven. Initial installation was fairly easy, with some quirks. We definitely liked the features and the style of the product. After about nine months, we started getting an error code. I called up LG customer service and they did a great job in analyzing the problem. They have this cool thing where you activate this diagnostic feature while you are on the phone with them and they can listen to your dishwasher to find out what is wrong.
So they diagnosed it as a draining problem and gave me their local repair company's number to make an appointment for the repair.
First issue: Wrong number...Wouldn't you check to make sure that you had the right number on file for your authorized repair company?
Second Issue: The repair company was booked two weeks out.
Third Issue: The repair company comes to look at it and has to order the part.
Fourth Issue: 2 weeks later (1 month now) the repair guy comes to install the part only to find out that they ordered the wrong part. It took me another 3 weeks to find out where the correct part was and when I could expect it installed. Two weeks later they came to install it (over 2 months now)
Fifth Issue: Repair guy comes to install the "correct" part. Installs it and runs the machine. Same friggin error code. Now here is the kicker...
HE THROWS UP HIS HANDS AND SAYS "I GUESS WE CAN'T FIX IT, YOU MIGHT WANT TO CALL LG" AND WALKS OUT THE DOOR.
I was shocked, but I called LG and explained that the repair person couldn't fix it and so I wanted to talk about replacing the product. Nope, they wanted to send out another repair company to see if they could fix it.
Long story I know. but we are now three months without a working dishwasher. Ridiculous! No resolution as of yet. I will update as soon as we figure this out.

The unit is quiet so does not disturb when trying to watch tv or having conversations.
One time the soap dispenser did not open but that has not happened again. We received this product on July 14 and are satisfied.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Scott LG dishwasher
I bought this model, or at least one almost identical in 2012 to replace a 10 year old Kenmore. What caught my attention was this is the sturdiest unit I could find. All the others were cheaply assembled with loose, delicate handles and such. The first time I turned it on, I was very impressed with the quietness. However, when I took the dishes out, most of them still had lots of food and dirt on them, and this is after a 3 hour wash cycle! This machine doesn't have an internal heater, so you have to compensate by keeping your water heater at a higher temp than you used to. I have soft water and have tried different detergents and rinse agents and the only detergent that works is the expensive Cascade Complete, but I still have to pre wash most dishes by hand before loading the dishwasher, which was not the case with my previous two units. I wasted around $700 for this unit. I'm replacing it as soon as I can afford it and it certainly won't be an LG.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tink214 Cleans everything, super quiet, energy efficient
I did a great deal of research before choosing this dishwasher for my new kitchen. My husband did not feel that we needed a dishwasher since it is just the 2 of us. This dishwasher changed his mind quickly. I cook full dinners every night. I have never even had to use it on anything but normal load and it cleans everything. Egg pans, casserole dishes, plates - not scraped and on occasion sit in there for a day and a half until it's full. I love that I can put plastics on either rack because of the hybrid drying system. I love that I can configure it for anything in my kitchen. I love that it uses so little water and electric. I love that everything is clean and I don't ever scrape anything. I love that I never have dishes in my sink anymore. I will say that there is water left on plastics on occasion, but no more then any other dishwasher. This is packed with features, it's low profile and extremely quiet. My husband loves it and so do I. I call ours "Deidre" like she's my little maid and told my husband "good thing Deirde doesn't talk - she'd be demanding a raise". Buy this, you won't be sorry!
