Large capacity quiet dishwasher
Posted by: Nate from: on
We are very happy with this dishwasher. It looks great and cleans great. I love the third rack for utensils. We took out the large utensil basket from the bottom rack and stored it away since we never need it. This leaves so much space for pots and large bowls on the bottom rack. The folding tines are nice and create lots of flexible loading options. The racks are larger than our old dishwasher. Before I always had a half a glass worth of unusable space in a row but this machine perfectly fits a row of standard width glasses. The machine runs very quietly. It is just audible enough that you can tell it is running. There are some BRIGHT blue LED indicator lights on the front showing cycle progress. You will not need a kitchen night light if this is running. The controls on the top edge are convenient but difficult to read in dim lighting until you make a selection, at which point it lights up brightly. On our install the top control panel is visible just under the cabinet edge. It has a digital countdown cycle timer. The cycles are very long, 2:15 - 3:45 depending on cycle choices. All our loads have come out sparkling clean but plastic dishes often are still a little wet in the nooks and crannies. The adjustable second rack is quick and easy to adjust up and down, although I only moved it once so far. The inside capacity of this dishwasher is really quite large compared to all other machines I've used in the past.

This is the most expensive appliance I own at this point, and I LOVE it!
I am frugal. I hate spending money on things like this, but I am so happy with this purchase.
I wanted a dishwasher that cleans the dishes. My former dishwasher (husband) just wasn't getting the job done. To me, there is nothing more disgusting than "clean" dishes with food stuck to it....or lipstick marks, etc. (not only was my husband a bad dishwasher but my cheaper frigidaire stunk too.)
The LG CLEANS the dishes! I am not rinsing them down either (for the price, I figured I shouldn't have to) well mild rinsing sometimes.
I have not had anything come out dirty! All the dishes are perfectly clean!
Next, I LOVE the 1/2 load function. I have a small family. We don't eat every meal at home, so it can take awhile to completely full the dishwasher, so this 1/2 load function is PERFECT :)
I don't have young children, so the noise factor wasn't a huge deal for us. That said, you can't hear this thing at all. You really wouldn't know it is running if you didn't read the timer displayed at the top. Not a sound.
More impressive, my frigidaire dishwasher used to steam up the entire kitchen, easily increasing the temp by 5 degrees-not to mention heating up anything on the counter above it.
The LG remains cool to the touch. The counter doesn't heat up, nor does my kitchen.
My husband scoffed at spending the money, but last night, even he said: "you were right. It was worth it."
(Oh and don't forget, it has an awesome warranty. And for added measure, we did get the Best Buy warranty too. After our recent trouble with our Nabi and Samsung TV-we aren't taking any chances.)

Met all my expectations!
Posted by: bettina from: Jacksonville, FL on
I looked at so many dishwashers and read so many reviews that I was confused before purchasing my dishwasher, which replaced a 14 year old Maytag. I leaned towards LG, as I have their washer, drier, and refrigerator, and have been pleased. The dishwasher is perfect. I scrape the dishes, don't rinse them, and they come out perfectly. No spots on the glasses, plastic containers come clean too. And it is so quiet I wouldn't know it was on except for the indicator light. I'm glad I spent extra and got the steam model, I think it just melts away the dirt. Also love the 3 racks and the adjustable middle rack that allows me to wash large pots on the bottom. Absolutely no complaints!

Capacity and Cleanliness are what i wanted and got. The thing is so quiet you do not know it is running. Mulitple cycles is good for different levels of dirtiness. Only real complaint i have is the length of time it takes to run full cycle, but i can live with that

Loving this LG Dishwasher!
Posted by: BobRoony2000 from: Anchorage, Ak on
Loving this LG Dishwasher. Its super quiet. Super efficient. I can watch TV in my livingroom and not even have to think about delaying a load of dishes because its soooo quiet. The capacity is ginormous. The ability to adjust the top rack height is slick, lets you have taller items on bottom rack. You can even adjust the strength of the wash on bottom or top rack, well, not top but middle due to their being a 3rd rack atop. 3rd rack is nice for utensils but its not as powerful as a wash as the middle or bottom rack. The silverware holder in the bottom rack is neat. It has a lid that can close on each section revealing a nice spacer for you to slip in silverware. Could not be happier with this purchase and this product.

We were replacing a dishwasher that made it impossible to talk in the kitchen while it was running. The LG dishwasher is amazingly quiet, so quiet that people have asked if it's even running. The adjustable height shelves and adjustable tines are great. We are still getting used to the glasses drawer and trying to figure out how to not make our glasses tip over due to a narrow, angled shelf on one side of the drawer. The third/top silverware drawer is great because it eliminates the need for the baskets and frees up space in the bottom rack. But if the silverware is lined up to close together and isn't rinsed well before putting in the dishwasher, they don't clean well and the food sticks. The dishes would still be a little wet (particularly the glasses) but we started using a rinse aid which fixed that problem and eliminates the need for the extra heated dry. My biggest negative is even after 6 months of use, the dishwasher still smells of heated plastic when it runs. I thought the 'new' smell should have worn off by now as it's not pleasant.

I've been looking for a new dishwasher for quite some time and saw this in the store as a floor model. After looking it over for a few minutes and noticing the different wash modes I determined that it should satisfy my needs. I brought it home and installed it the next day. The installation was straightforward, instructions were excellent and it looks like it's always been there. The best part about this dishwasher is that you have to put your ear up to it to know it's running. This is a huge plus since we congregate in the kitchen after large dinners and couldn't hold a conversation with our old dishwasher running. Oh yeah, it does an outstanding job of getting the dishes clean too! I would definitely buy it again.

Cleans better than anything but takes its time
Posted by: driftingsupra from: on
This dishwasher looks and cleans amazingly, however the shortest cycle is close to 3 hours and the longest cycle is over 4 hours. We usually do dishes before we go to bed so its not a big deal to us especially because its so quiet you can barely tell that its on. The dishes come out sparkling clean even with baked on cheese.

LG STEAM DISHWASHER
Posted by: DivAD from: NAPLES on
THE LG STEAM DISHWASHER IS QUIET, GREAT CLEANING AND ONE OF THE NICEST DISHWASHER'S ON THE MARKET. THE STAINLESS IS A RICH FINISH. LG PRODUCTS ARE MY FAVORITE AND THIS IS ANOTHER ADDITION TO THE LG FAMILY I OWN.

Quietest dishwasher for the money.
Posted by: samm from: Seattle on
Quiet, stylish, option rich and durable. For the money there is no faulting this machine for the end result.
