Summary: We usually don't buy extended warranties, but for some reason we did get a 5-year extended warranty with this. Good thing, because it needed to be repaired at least once a year every year. Now it is out of warranty, and broken - a hinge is broken (for the 2nd or 3rd time), it leaked water out the bottom and warped our wood floor, the water didn't drain out the last time it did work, won't even turn on... the list goes on and on.
Summary: We have this exact dishwasher and we bought the 1 year warranty - good thing we did, because we had to call in the repair man about 3 times for the year. Not only that, now this dishwasher has another problem with the drainage. This is definitely a very poor quality product! It is worth it to spend the extra money to purchase an appliance which will last much longer and is built to do what it is meant to do!
Summary: We bought this dishwasher about a year and a half ago. It cleaned dishes well for about a month and then dishes started coming out more and more dirty. My husband had to completely disassemble the dishwasher to clean out the built up food from the supposed "disposer". We bought this dishwasher specifically for this feature and would have been better off without it. It is just a plastic arm that forces particles through a mesh panel.
Summary: I like the look of this DW and it cleans dishes fairly well, very quietly. However, we had the faulty motor replaced twice and now there is an electrical issue with a short circuit. We paid $800 for the DW originally and the repairs are several hundred in labor each time. Destroyed my confidence in LG.
