    The LDPH7972S is worth every penny!!!

    We got our LDPH7972S nearly two months and boy, is it fantastic! Actually, "game changer" sums it up best. Don't listen to the negative reviews - if you're like us and haven't upgraded your dishwasher in over 10 years, you will be completely awed by how AMAZING this LDPH7972S is in comparison. For starters, it is SO quiet! We never ran our old dishwasher at night, it was so loud. Not this one: we frequently run it on a delay after midnight for time of use savings on our electric bill and we never hear it running! Instead, we're greeted in the morning with sparkling dishes, cups and utensils to be put away. The LDPH7972S does an incredible job of cleaning and drying, especially compared to our old dishwasher. With Finish rinsing agent and quality dish detergent tabs, whatever we wash comes out sparkling clean. We've also found the Night Dry with Dry boost gets everything dry, with the only exception being the bottoms of upside-down coffee mugs or anything else that can collect water if not overturned and/or angled correctly. That's also vast improvement over what we were used to seeing with our old dishwasher. Another feature we like is how easy it is to lower or raise the second and third racks. I could go on about all of the great features of the LDPH7972S, such as the ThinQ app - but suffice it to say that every feature that LG describes on their website about this dishwasher are spot on and work just as described. But there are a couple of incredible features that might go unnoticed in other reviews, so we will mention them here. First, the LDPH7972S is a sleek and beautifully designed dishwasher that instantly upgraded our kitchen and forever transformed our experience with dishwashing. Second are the LED lights, both on the inside of the dishwasher as well as the external LED display that appears near the top center of the door when the machine is powered on. These latter two features are game-changers. Being able to see clearly inside the machine upon opening the door is obviously wonderful, and the exterior LED display is pure, high-tech sorcery. See our uploaded photo of the external LED: I can't stop marveling at how it magically appears without there being any hint of a display screen in the stainless-steel door. Thanks to this LED display, you’ll always know the time remaining on the selected wash cycle. It then displays “End” when done, so you’ll never have to open your dishwasher to find out if it’s really done. We love doing our dishes with the LDPH7972S and you will, too!

    I recently purchased the LG dishwasher with 42dba that allows for conversations to continue uninterrupted, even in close proximity to the appliance. This is a game-changer, especially for those who value a peaceful home environment. Besides its quiet charm, the cleaning capabilities of the LG dishwasher are commendable. It tackles tough stains and dried-on food with ease, leaving dishes spotless. The adjustable racks and well-thought-out interior design make loading and unloading so much easier.. if you're in the market for a quiet, high-performing dishwasher, the LG model is certainly worth considering. I am pleased with my purchase and would recommend it to those seeking a top-tier dishwasher with a focus on quiet functionality.

    Replaced a 20 year old Jenn Air that probably cost twice as much. We almost went Bosch but the racks felt like dragging metal on concrete and we loved the ball bearing racks on the LG. I've been using this dishwasher nightly for 2 weeks and am ready to review. TL;Dr - It's fantastic! We use equate brand liquid dishwasher detergent and dry aid. So no frills. I run auto > steam > dry boost > night dry options. Wash quality: Dishes come out spotless and most importantly, bone DRY. EVEN TUPPERWARE. This has never been possible before with our Jenn Air. Bonus: The 3rd rack is useful for big knives, small lids, and some other utensils. Size: This thing is huge!! But it sticks out less than 1/2 and inch from the counter. The metal prongs are extremely sturdy and easily folded to make room for other size dishes. I like the LG's more standardized layout vs the Bosch 800 which felt like pure chaos. Finish: We love the non finger print stainless. For those concerned it looks JUST LIKE STAINLESS and not a cheap sticker. Matches our unbranded Samsung fridge and Jenn Air appliances 100%. Lighting: We love the interior lights. It's a little extra touch. Noise: Sound? What sound. This baby is so quiet I can't even hear it while standing in the same room. Drying: The night dry option with the fan that blows moisture out of the interior throughout the night is GENIUS for people who aren't there to immediately put away clean dishes. Summary:For the price I think this is the Bentley of dishwashers and I'm very happy with our purchase. It's also easy to install yourself. You only need a new dishwasher water line. Everything else is in the box.

    I read so many reviews and looked at all the dishwasher brands/models on display in stores. This model has all the features and bells/whistles available without spending $2k+ #1 interior led lighting is a big plus! #2 built-in ph app control w/Alexa & Google with having to buy a separate module #3 real steam for pre-wash/wash cycles #4 10 cycles options & programs #5 changeable ending cycle songs #6 quad lower spray arm #7 real blower hot air drying #8 The best adjustable racks I've ever seen in a dishwasher. I've had different dishwashers for over 50 yrs and this one's been the very best at cleaning, drying plus so very very quiet too! And yes, I sure did buy the 5 yr service warranty coverage too for more peace of mind.

    This machine is great in terms of look and functionality. I love the light inside. However the touchscreen where the controls are is made of plastic and cracked right by the start button. they said this is a known issue but lg stopped giving out the part number so it is trickier to fix.

    Honestly, yes its a bit more pricey and I’m absolutely happy that I decided to go with this dishwasher instead of one that cost less. This thing is going above and beyond my expectations. theres three racks , heated coil to dry, and even a light on the interior !!! Its wifi enabled and does a spectacular job cleaning the dishes. Best buy even confirmed delivery and installation ( figured might as well get a third party to install) and they were professional and even installed an outlet underneath the kitchen cabinet to ensure the dishwasher sits correctly in the designated spot. Whole process was painless, honestly.

    This LG dishwasher is super quiet. It is so quiet that I can't hear it running. My old dishwasher was very loud. The third party contractors who delivered and installed the dishwasher did a great job. The old whirlpool dishwasher was removed and the new one installed in 19 minutes flat. The new dishwasher leaves my dishes clean and dry. I especially like the feature that dries the dishes overnight by periodically turning on the fan to remove moisture from the dishwashing tub.

    Overall my wife and I do enjoy this dishwasher. It does clean and dry very well. The things we don't like are the adjustable organizers. They fall too easily. The third rack makes the middle rack too short for those taller cups. If you move the middle rack down to get more space for the cups, the jet bar then hits the plates. You can overcome this by removing the top rack, but then you have to find a spot to hide it. Lastly we're not a fan of the silverware rack being at the back of the bottom rack. We're used to it being at the front with our last dishwasher.

    Best dishwasher ever owned. It was between this and a Bosch and I’m so happy I went with this. My favorite features are the tub lights, adjustable racks and top drawer. We replaced a Samsung and gets our dishes super clean and dry. We use the quick auto most of the time. Super quiet.

    Best Diswasher ever made!!!

    If you're on the fence about buying this it's time to make the jump and buy it now. Here's my top 10 Reasons why: #1 Steam cleans, sanitizes, and drys like champ! This hammers through impossible tasks like burnt on lasagna likely because the steam loosens it first. It also uses steam at the end to eliminate spots on glassware. Anyone reviews you read here that said this appliance "doesn't dry" must not be using rinse aid. Rinse aid is cheap and lasts a very long time. It notifies you when it's low. Even on 1 hour mode everything is both crystal clean and bone dry (yes even the plastics). #2 Better than the Bosch 800! It's built better, more reliable, packed with way more features, and it's $500 cheaper! The Bosch has a pop open door but this instead has a fan and a vent which does the same thing but better. I returned the Bosch 800 for this after a month because I hated that it was so boring and the tines were too close together making it hard to fit many of my dishes, pots and pans. Now I have this amazingly ungraded appliance instead. #3 Tub lights. Very bright. Awesome to see your dishes when loading and unloading. Nobody else has this and it's really nice. #3 Hidden front clock. I still don't understand where the light even comes from. You literally can't see it until it comes on. It reminds me of the heads up display hologram on car windshields. I like how you get confirmation it's on and the time left and can see when it's done. #4 The app. if you are techy the app has a ton of extra modes, remote starts, and can send notifications when finished. #5 Endless adjustability A. Best Top 3rd rack in the game by far. The left side drops up and down to fits small cups and more low profile things like butter dishes and ramekins. The right side has a removable cutlery rack that can be used to fit all of the silverware so you can take the big trey out and have much more room. B. All the tines on the 1st and second racks flip up and down and clip in very securely. I read they go up and down to easily on accident and that is not the case. There is always a way to make all the dishes fit perfectly with the endless options. I like they are speed out wider than the Bosch and can fit thicker plates and dishes easier. The Bosch tines were so skinny I was going to have to buy all new plates to make them fit. C. Stemware racks that go up and down when need. #6 highly intelligently designed racks that slide butter smooth with the high end rollers. They have great angles that just work to fit more things comfortably. #7 1 hour mode. It is unbelievable how well it cleans. All the modes are great but if you can save money on power and use less water to be done in an hour why not always use the one hour mode? #8 Total bargain. This is essentially the same dishwasher and the $1800 signature line but this one I think is better because it has the hidden digital clock on front and no LG badging which is great because you can match it with Samsung or any other stainless steel non LG appliances. The only thing that the Signature line has that's "better" is 38DB as opposed to 42DB but this model is already silent. If you can't hear 42 why would you pay extra for 38? Silent is silent. I have OCD and studied all the top models from all the other brands and nobody can hold a candle to this dishwasher. I would pay $2000 for this appliance. #9 Quad wash. It has sprays below the bottom and the second rack so you know that everything is getting more clean than other dishwashers no matter what you put on the bottom level like large cups and salad bowls which would prevent water from reaching the upper levels. #10 Looks! The pocket door is very sleek and high end plus it's lower profile and much better than having a handle sticking out further in your kitchen. Top control are nice and make it perfectly minimalistic. Front controls are ugly and old school IMO. Tips: I made one small upgrade was I bought the LG silverware rack from an older model which splits into 3 separate sections for $18. I now can use the original after a dinner party or only 1 or 2 pieces for added versatility. You can fit those on the middle rack but I usually just use the top 3rd cutlery side to free up the extra room below. If you don't use a lot of silverware very often like me it's very well built but just larger than I typically need.

    So far this is excellent, quiet and easy to use. Love the idea that the handle doesn't stick out and the controls are hidden, but still shows me how much time is left and when it ends. Found it great that a light comes on when I open the door, easy to fill and start at night without turning a light on.

    We couldn’t be happier with this dishwasher. It is extremely quiet and the dishes come out sparkling. If you read the instructions, it is very easy to use. The filter is easy to remove and clean as needed. We have been using it for close to 2 months with no problems.

    Bought this to replace another LG dishwasher from 2012. This one has very good drying performance due to the hot air blower, tub light is nice. Runs very quiet, can’t tell it’s on sometimes. Only feature I wish it has is a bottle washer nozzle
