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.


Whisper-Quiet Operation

Get wise

It's unlikely you'll experience any problems with your LG dishwasher, but if you ever do, this feature helps the service center diagnose problems over the phone, or with a smart phone app, helping you minimize costly, inconvenient service calls.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy, and expensive and you probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Horrible Dishwasher

Submitted by Marie From DE - 9/18/2018

I have hated this dishwasher since I first purchased it. I called repair shortly after I got it and the repair man said there was nothing wrong with the drying feature which I always thought was bad. It doesnt clean well and never has and now after 4 years the door doesnt open for the soap dispensing. I use liquid dishwasher soap and it still has white smear marks on the inside. I just think it is the worse dishwasher Ive ever had and Ive had about 5 over a 35 year span. Im just getting another one and I will never buy an LG product again.

Submitted by SydWS - 12/27/2017

I bought this about a month ago and have loved the fridge since we got it. It has a great deal of space that is well-laid out. I like that the ice is a bit smaller and the extra ice tray in the freezer drawer. Its also nice that some of the shelves can be moved easily to allow for taller items. Overall its been a great purchase

Had high hopes these were dashed

Submitted by TomG63 - 12/26/2017

I had this dishwasher installed with a kitchen remodel. I had high hopes for it based on LG reputation. Well those hopes were dashed. Why? Here is a list: *Lower rack tines continually collapse causing dishes to crash together. Already lost 2 dishes to breakage. Had to fix by using zip ties to hold tines up. *Dishes are not cleaned. I have resorted to washing my dishes by hand for the most part and putting them into the dish washer for a touch up. Plates come out with food on them glasses come out with food particles on them silverware doesnt even look like it has been in the dishwaser. *Rinse aid usage. The Rinse aid dispenser is constantly being shown as empty. It seems like very 2 loads I have to add additional Rinse Aid. This is a horrible product and it looks like I am going to have to replace it and spend yet more money.

Terrific

Submitted by Nell17 - 12/5/2017

The LG microwave replaced an old one the old one was surrounded by cabinets and granite. We could not find one that fit in the space we were thinking of having the granite cut until a salesman found us the LG with the same measurements as the broken one. It fits perfectly looks amazing and overall is terrific. We love it

AWFUL spend your $$ elsewhere

Submitted by UnhappywLGSorryIBoughtLG - 11/14/2017

This dishwasher only lasted a little over 2 years at a cost of a little over $600 that comes out to about $300 a year. The control board malfunctioned melted and in the process melted the wiring harness. I guess we are lucky it didnt cause a fire. Both the main control board and the wiring harness need to be replaced. The control board is still under warranty but the labor is not covered. LG customer service is terrible. My initial contact was through their website email. They sent me an email that I could not reply to directly and the links provided did not work. I called their toll-free number where the representative opened a case requesting LG either cover the labor or send me the parts so I could self-repair. I even sent LG photos showing the control board and wiring harness are melted. I was told I would have an answer within 2 days eight days later I still had no answer from LG oven thought I had provided three methods of contact. I again reached out via email only to be notified that my request had been denied but to provide details on what I had done to diagnose the issue. I had already provided this information twice. I again called LGs customer service number to be told my request was denied and my only option is to call an authorized service provider. Even though I have diagnosed the issue LG is insisting I go through an authorized repair center. So I will most likely have to pay for 2 service calls one to have a technician diagnose the issue that I have already diagnosed and a second to repair the dishwasher.

Concerned about reliability

Submitted by Easygoing - 9/26/2017

Purchased dishwasher in fall and closed house for winter. In spring I had to replace motor fortunately III was under warranty. But service representative told me LG was no longer providing parts under warranty and service company would have to purchase part so the company was not going to service LG units in future.

Very disappointed in this product

Submitted by chocolatefudgecicle - 9/22/2017

I have owned this product for just under a year and it is perhaps the worst dishwasher I have owned. Put the dishes in clean and they come out dirty I am working with the warranty dept now to get this resolved. The tech informed me that they dont like to work on LG products because LG does not pay the contractors promptly. Last time I will buy from LG if I have a choice.
