      Answer

      The Hybrid Drying System in the LG - 24" Built-In Dishwasher with Stainless Steel Tub - Stainless steel, Model # LDS5040ST that effectively dries your dishes without use of a heating element is part of the cycle which will run to completion so it cannot be turned off. You can cancel a cycle by opening the door and then pressing and holding the Normal and Delicate buttons simultaneously for approximately three seconds. The drain pump will activate and the cycle will cancel. The display will shoe "dr" and the dishwasher will drain the water and after it has drained, it will turn off...^IFV

      Answer

      Which cycle are you referring to? According to some studies that have been done on this topic, the average dishwasher uses 6 gallons of water per cycle; the average Energy Star-rated dishwasher uses 4 gallons per cycle. Energy Star assumes each load in a "standard" dishwasher (usually 24 inches in size) has "a capacity greater than or equal to eight place settings and six serving pieces. The LG Semi-Integrated Dishwasher with Flexible EasyRack™ System, Model # LDS5040WW has 5 cycles ( Power Scrub, Normal, Delicate, Quick and Upper Only) that have water usage that ranges from 5 gallons (19L) to 7.7 gallons (29L). The actual water consumption may vary depending on soil level and water hardness. Pre-Rinsing or scraping food off dishes helps to turn your load into a “lightly soiled” one so you can complete the wash quicker. Cycle times on this machine run from 84 minutes to 166 minutes. The U.S.-based Energy Star program issued new standards that came into effect on Jan. 20, 2012, requiring dishwashers to use less water and energy so to achieve this, dishwashers were redesigned to clean just as well despite using less water and electricity. Manufacturers accomplished this, in part, by having their machines run longer. With less water to spray, the machines spray longer, using higher-efficiency motors and pumps. It is counter-intuitive because most people relate longer run times to higher energy and water usage, but in reality, cleaning performance can be increased and energy usage can be reduced, with longer run times. Even though the dishwasher runs twice as long, it uses less water and power...^IFV
