J.D. Power Award Winner

"Highest in Customer Satisfaction with Dishwashers"


STEAM WASH, DON'T PRE-WASH

Powerful yet gentle TrueSteam® virtually eliminates the need to pre-wash. The built-in TrueSteam® generator also enables gentle cleaning for fragile items (like stemware), and can also be used for heavy-duty cleaning like pots and pans.


Easy Loading, Maximum Flexibility

The newly-enhanced EasyRack Plus system provides outstanding flexibility and convenience, adjusting to just about any load of dishes to help ensure optimal cleaning performance. Easy to adjust on-the-fly, this racking system can shift to handle any challenge your dishes can serve up.


Step Up to the 3rd Rack

The height adjustable 3rd rack gives you more space to fit everything from long flatware to small espresso cups.


Quiet Operation

LG's technological advances, like the Inverter DirectDrive motor and the advanced self-cleaning filtration system, were designed with quiet in mind. At 42dB, this dishwasher is among the quietest dishwashers in its class.


Split Personality

Enables users to vary the intensity in the upper and lower racks (e.g. delicates in the upper rack, and pots & pans in the lower rack with strong setting), accommodating different items in the same load.


Count on it

When you buy a dishwasher, you want something reliable that you can count on. Because the Direct Drive Motor uses fewer moving parts and operates more efficiently, LG confidently backs the motor with a 10-year limited warranty.

Nice concept but poorly engineered.

Submitted by Remorseful Buyer - 3/31/2018

Been using the product for a year and kept hoping it would grow on me. Nope. The bottom rack tends to fall off its rail and rusted after less than a year. The detergent compartment is too small for detergent pods. The toe kick is poorly aligned and the door catches on it when opened or closed. And for some reason theyve done away with the clean light that most dishwashers had since the 90s. Oh a light comes in when the cycle is done but if you open the door the light goes off so my new state-of-the-art dishwasher now has one of the clean/dirty magnets from the dollar store. Im actually looking forward to the day it quits for good so I can justify getting another one.

Very Quiet but Clean Dishes Are An Issue

Submitted by EdMo76 - 3/4/2018

The cycles are too long and the dishes come out foggy and unclean. We use a rinse aid as it suggests in the manual and an extra rinse cycle dishes still dont come out clean. Clear glass seems to come out the worst. They seem to come out dirtier than when we put them in. Mainly the glass is very foggy and has a white film that my wife has to manually scrub off later. The bottom rack prongs are difficult to keep vertical and the arrangement of them in order to hold plates straight is not very intuitive. My main concern is the fogginess and lack of cleanliness seen on the dishes. Is there something were doing wrong? Oh the third top third rack is not very helpful. Suggestions?

DO NOT BUY

Submitted by Ali Q - 1/20/2018

About 6months ago we remodeled our kitchen and brought all new LG appliances. This dishwasher has made my life miserable Most cups dont fit on top rack the 3rd top rack is usless its too close to the top of the dishwasher and will only fit things that are flat. Lets NOT talk about the bottom rack with the interchangeable rows that dont stay locked into place. Its a headache to load bc anything with a little weight i.e. pots or pans collapses the rows and by the end of the cycle your dishes are everywhere :. Most cycles are 3 hours or longer and many of dishes wont be clean. For the price you can find something more effective that uses less water and actually gets your dishes clean. If you are considering this model dont bother you will find your self hand washing and using it as a dish drainer.

Very quiet

Submitted by melnjoy - 12/6/2017

I bought this unit about a year ago. Loved it at First. Very quiet a little confusing to learn all the button features but managed through it. The spray arm under the middle rack has been giving me quite a bit of grief lately. two months It keeps falling off. I went online and chatted with your online help persons on 3 different occasions. I have since ordered new sprayer arms and most recently part # AEC73278201 which is the part that holds the sprayer arm under the middle rack. Im still finding the sprayer arm laying on top of my dishes on the bottom rack and my dishes not properly cleaned.

OE error all the time

Submitted by chenthil - 11/25/2017

we bought this dishwasher from Best Buy. We have had nothing but trouble with this dishwasher. All the time we were getting OE error. Best Buy geek squad came in and serviced at least 5 times they replaced the drain pump hose and filter. I am still seeing OE . Waiting for Best Buy geek squad to show up on the 6th. until then although we have top of the line dishwasher from a well renowned manufacturer we are forced to suffer by washing dishes manually Will not recommend LG to anyone again

Happy So Far...

Submitted by jbernas15 - 11/15/2017

Unit is very quiet I can hardly hear it run. Very easy to operate and I love the styling. The only complaint I have is the lower rack constantly coming off the track and falling down onto the sprayer in the bottom. I have to pick the entire rack which is usually filled with dishes and place it back on its tracks so that it will glide in and out again. Sure wish there were redesigned rollers with a longer length or something. If it werent for the rack issue this would be a 10 no doubt.

Great Dishwasher needs minor changes

Submitted by HCG813 - 10/24/2017

We love the dishwasher. It is very quiet the setting are varied and perfect for all sorts of a mess. The 3rd draw is quiet useless. The time required to arrange your silverware in perfect order.. all when there is a perfectly fine basked for silverware. The space for the 3rd draw could have be better utilized. the soap dispenser door is a bit difficult to close. The space provided for the Rinse Agents is quite small. I seem to be filling it every 2-3 weeks. But all in all.. we are quite happy with the dishwasher

So quiet

Submitted by Acsfw - 10/22/2017

I have had this dishwasher about 7 months. Overall it washes well and is SUPER quiet which I love. The steam cycle is amazing when you have a really messy load or a lot of stuck on food. But it does well on just the normal cycle which is what I use at least once daily. A couple of cons that some others have mentioned - the lights on the front are pretty bright. This does not bother me at all because I turn it on when Im done in the kitchen for the night but if you would be bothered by lights blinking on the front just know that these are pretty bright. One other drawback - the bottom rack seems to come off of the tract pretty easily. Again this does not bother me too much but its just annoying when the thing is full. If I was buying this for an elderly parent who might have trouble getting it on track I might avoid this model. Overall I am happy with this and would buy it again

Would not buy

Submitted by tawanda - 9/24/2017

While it cleans powerfully the interior design stinks. The angle on the top rack make putting my glasses in impossible. All of the movable parts dont lock into place well at all. The silverware basket is 3 pieces. They dont stay together so lifting the whole thing out to unload is impossible. The times of the lower rack fall down EVERY time I close the tray. So my dishes are constantly falling over and crashing together.

I love this dishwasher it has three rows that adjust up down to fit anything its awesome. Its easy to clean and take filters out to have them rinsed out and places back in.

An Excellent Machine with a Few Drawbacks

Submitted by Soulfulpsy - 9/22/2017

Our LG dishwasher is overall a fine machine. It does get the dishes clean. There are a variety of wash cycles and in some there are a few additional choices e.g. the intensity of the rinse spray how hot the water etc. It is nice to have a rinse-only cycle when youre not ready for a full cycle. The drawback is the length of the cycles nearly all take at least 2.5 hours up to almost 3 and possibly longer. There is a Quick and Dry thats shorter but only for a light load. As for racks the horizontal positions are excellent the top full rack can be raised or lowered depending upon what is in the bottom tray. The third rack also is a great idea for silverware very small bowls etc. The problem area is with the adjustable tines: While the idea is good -- to have tines that can be lowered to fit various dishes these tines do not hold position well when in the regular vertical position so one is forever having to bend down to raise them back up and often to redo the dishes that have come unloose. Also in the bottom rack the rows of tines do not always line up well which means plates bowls start knocking into each other. These flaws are annoying but are far from being a major problem Over all we are quite happy with it.

Great dishwasher

Submitted by Travis in KS - 9/22/2017

I bought my dishwasher almost a year ago and it still works like it did when it was installed. It is so quite that sometimes I forget that it is on. My old dishwasher was so loud that we couldnt hear the tv in the next room. The adjustable racks make it nice to put in pots that would not normally fit. The only issue my family has found that with two little children we have to clean dishes before using the dishwasher or we were cleaning the trap after every couple uses. The controls on top are great when you have a 2 yr old that likes to play with stuff.

LG is going to regret asking for my review

Submitted by Alan518 - 9/22/2017

This is the biggest piece of garbage I have ever bought for my home. The only reason I give it 1 star is because I cannot give it 0. The pump only lasts for a few months before it needs replacing. The control board doesnt last long either. It may look nice on the outside but it is definitely a poorly made cheap plastic cheap part product on the inside. This dishwasher is ALWAYS breaking. I would run from this product.

Cleaning with steam

Submitted by HR Happy - 8/1/2017

Cleaning with steam . I am tenacious when it comes to researching a product that is going to be part of my family and my interior. Product after product I now feel extremely lucky to be a part of the LG consumer community . This dishwasher is incredible . I have tested its abilities with baked on messes that other dishwashers have completely ignored . They have come out like new . I have Waterford crystal everything . After a dinner party of 6 to 8 people I load according to my manual and the results are astonishing . I am truly happy with the brand and the many products throughout my home the design and look fit my interior which is sleek an uncluttered .

looks good so far

Submitted by donna13 - 7/13/2017

just came today. the only problem was that the specs said 49.75 with door open depth and when installed it still hit the range which is why I didnt get the model with the 50.5 door open depth. we had to angle the dishwasher under the countertop and its off by 1 1/2...not a perfect fit. otherwise Im sure well love it.

OK cleaning Very tired of the smell.

Submitted by JoeBod - 6/12/2017

Used this to replace a 10year old kitchen aide dishwasher.. Bottom rack is spaced for plates anything else you have to move racks and cut capacity by 40. cleaning is OK. In 1 year I have not see any value the steam feature adds to the cleaning. The real problem is the smell this unit does not have a food grinder so you have to remove the screen and trap often and scrub with bleach to kill the sell. Dont forget the bottom of the trap I have found funky mold growth on it. LG should pull the trap and add a grinder

Super Quiet

Submitted by Whawk39304 - 5/16/2017

Love the new dishwasher but very disappointed that it took 6 months to get after I purchased it in early December. Still waiting on small refund that was supposed to be at my house in late April and now is it Mid May.

Poor Design

Submitted by bob2003 - 3/19/2017

We purchased this in Dec 2016. After using it a month we returned it. The unit washed quiet and very well except the dish dividers kept falling down with use. Nice idea poor design on the racks.

Mixed feelings

Submitted by Marydishwasheruser - 2/23/2017

Im disappointed in the design of the upper rack. Weve broken several glasses due to the too sharp downward angle of the side areas which greatly limits what can be placed there. We have to run the dishwasher more frequently due to the inability to place dishes safely so they wont break. On the positive side - dishes are much cleaner with this dishwasher and its quieter than any other unit weve encountered. The top 3rd rack is very nice for small items. Just wish the upper rack was more functional.

Very quiet but does so so cleaning job

Submitted by wilsonkat - 1/19/2017

Weve had this dishwasher about 2 years. The best thing about it is how quiet it is you dont even know its running. The tines in the bottom rack are a little wacky and I cant seem to get my plates to sit just right but its not a huge deal moreso that I cant pack the bottom rack as efficiently as I would like. I like the third rack for little items. Unfortunately for the cost I dont think it adequately cleans the dishes particularly when the finishing rinse detergent runs out. I sometimes find food stuck on dishes and silverware. The latest problem is that the wheels on the bottom rack have somehow tilted and the rack falls off the track particularly when full we plan to buy replacement wheels to see if that solves the problem. They are cheap but for the cost of the dishwasher I would expect the wheels to last longer.

not dependable

Submitted by LouC - 1/18/2017

barely over 2 years old and the water pump is out once again. only appliance I have ever felt the need to purchase an extended warranty. Even that hasnt helped. Repairman here yesterday and this model has a unique pump....presently not able to find one on this continent. This is the THIRD pump in 2 years 2 months. Must be run on heavy duty cycle in order to clean satisfactorily. Very very dissatisfied . Feel LG should replace the unit as I gave premium price and have received less than premium performance. Has been inoperable now for 11 days and counting.

Worst Dishwasher of my Life

Submitted by MagicbearAkitas - 11/3/2016

I regret ever purchasing this dishwasher and wish I could return it. It does a horrible job at washing the dishes so everything must be scrubbed off before I put it in the tines that hold the dishes always fall the rack for your glasses is designed at a weird angle so glasses dont fit and fall over and break tried many types of glasses and none stay up the energy rating I thought was great---until I found out that to get that they took out a heated drying cycle so your dishes have to air dry which I have to open the dishwasher to dry my dishes the third rack doesnt clean any flatware I have put in it and is small that it doesnt hold anything else. The only good thing I can say about this dishwasher is that it is quiet---Id take back my noisy one though for the job this one does.

Great Dishwasher

Submitted by Dave33496 - 10/26/2016

My top priority was a dishwasher that was quiet. This unit definitely met this criteria. When it is running I sometimes forget that it is on. I also look the hidden control panel and all of the usage options.

Quiet and stylish

Submitted by Baiana - 9/7/2016

I bought this dishwasher at Amazon website. I have it for about 1 year now which I replaced my old GE which was very noisy and did no clean well. t love it so far. Everything I hoped for. Recommend. Installation was easy to understand the instructions. The lay-flat tines 3rd rack are its most useful features. Havent had the occasion to use the Steam yet so...Extremely quiet. The only noise is not from the machine per se but from whatever dishes / however you stack the dishes within it. My opinion is that for the price compared to others below/above it this is the best compromise between getting a lot of features you want but not paying profession kitchen or rich-wife custom kitchen remodeling prices. I also love the cute song it plays when the dishes are done

3rd rack awesome for mom of toddlers

Submitted by KelseyM - 9/7/2016

We bought this back in November of 15. Our old one was very loud so my mother in law bought us a new one for Christmas. When I started my hunt I had an infant and a 2 year old so a must for me was quiet with a 3rd rack. After research I came across the LG and I have been happy with my decision since we brought it home It is very user friendly the 3rd rack is always full of knives pacifiers bottle nipples sippy tops toddler spoons and forks love that feature as well as the second rack being able to adjust the height as well as all purple being movable. Im very very happy with this and any mother of toddler or kids would absolutely love this dishwasher its so quiet and can wash a lot My only honest complaint if the bottom rack falls of the tracks I tend to cuss it as its full and trying to get it back on the track

Love this dishwasher

Submitted by obx4rn - 8/13/2016

This dishwasher is so quiet you dont even know its on. Im still trying to figure out the settings but so far I love it I am so glad I bought this one The one and only downfall is that the settings are on the inside of the door and are a little difficult to see. I wish the settings lit up when you turn on the power. Other than that its perfect

Great Features

Submitted by Kukailimoku - 8/3/2016

Granted I only have it in operation for a few days and probably less than ten cycles including my own DIY installation leak tests before handing it over to the wife but so far it is excellent. Everything we hoped for. Ive not had any issue other people wrote about tines and plates falling over. I will say that under a load the tines do feel a little less solidly fixed as it does in the store display but not excessively loose if I am careful take a modicum of give-a-5h1t time to do it right none of the tines / plates fall over in the wash. Im not babying it either - just taking time to stack carefully. Have not used the steam yet no occasion to have-to but have used the Quick and Normal cycles. The Normal uses about 2/3 or half less water than the Quick but the Normal is about twice-three times as long as the Quick. Not sure yet my locality if electric or water consumption is more expensive so... The flexibility with the lay-flat tines is AWESOME I used to have to jerry-rig fit the pots and such onto fixed tines in my old dishwasher and moving the vessel around so it actually sits flat around the tines used to mean I lost square inches of the lower rack due to dead space. Not anymore With the selective lay-flat tines I can drop as many tines flat as I need and keep up those tines I want to keep up for maximum space utilization. The 3rd rack silverware trays are great too I dont even use the conventional basket half the time anymore. To properly use the 3rd rack takes a little bit more time and effort than the olden days of simply dumping a mass of forks into a basket but the time spent is well worth it. Racks are adjustable for height too but havent had to employ that feature just yet. Dishes come out dry and clear except plastics but I NEVER had plastics ever come out dry no one that Ive ever know. Happy. Would recommend. If this thing stays great I will probably not remember to come back and update this post so if you never hear form me again than all is well. Id probably only come back to edit/add a follow-on if it sux later on.
