Summary: We kept getting the E1 error and realized a piece needed to be changed after less than a year. We are receiving the message again more than ever and have had this dishwasher for only about two years now. Too much hassle. I've had dishwashers for way longer than this and never had any issues. I love the ease of the buttons and quiet, but the error and lack of drying isn't worth it. I own LG TVs and a refrigerator that are all great but this product is disappointing.
Summary: We purchased a second home in Florida that is 3 years old and has never been inhabited full time-so the dishwasher has not been heavily used. Somehow glasses and silverware come out of the dishwasher dirtier than when they went in. Overall the dishes are not cleaned well. We have done troubleshooting to make sure water vents are working properly and cleaned out the unit thoroughly and it hasn't helped.
Excellent Dishwasher ~ looking to buy another one!
Lake Girl, LG Electronics Ratings and Reviews
27 June 2014
Summary: We moved into a newer home that already had this dishwasher installed. We loved everything about this dishwasher. It did an excellent job of cleaning which was a nice surprise after the dishwashers in the last two homes (other brands). The bonus was that it was quiet which we greatly appreciated since the kitchen was quite close to our family room area where we spent most of our time. We are now building a new home and are hoping to get the same (or equivalent) machine.
Summary: 2 person household...had dishwasher 4 yrs...started making major noise...called repair..told only 2 outfits would touch LG appliances....service tech quoted $350 to repair .....said LG appliances are unreliable...very very disappointing...
Summary: Shortly after the 2-yr mark, the nylon coating on the upper rack split open and I now have rust from the metal frame within. There has always been some issues with the ability to clean some items thoroughly, especially some silverware items and plastic storage tubs. That problem has now extended to plates and other items in the racks. Also, after the drying cycle items still feel damp and sometimes have to be wiped to further dry upon removal from the racks.
Pros: Style/Design, easy to use, Features/Settings
Summary: This dishwasher is nothing more than a pretty cabinet. We have used it for what is designed to do, however it never performs!! After running it 2-3 times, the dishes are still grimmy & typically there is soap in the door or the bottom of the washer. This purchase was supposed to be an upgrade from our 10+ year old machine. Supposed to be.... Two years later, I still long for my old one back. Especially now that the dang thing will not even start.
Summary: We purchased a suite that included a refrigerator, stove, dishwasher and microwave, The dishwasher has never cleaned the dishes well. We were told by the service person that this dishwasher has had problems and has not worked properly since manufactured. He recommended we get the warranty extended. LG would only extend the parts warranty but not the service warranty. Our stove burner does not work properly either. The refrigerator does not have meat or cheese drawers.
Summary: We have had this dishwasher since 2009 and we do love it. We purchased it mainly for the quiet level which it is very quiet! However, sometimes it will make a whining noise not sure why. Also on occasion after a cycle is complete, there is a smell. Dishes are wet as well. I will open the door after the cycle is complete so the "smell" wont occur. otherwise it does clean very well and has a ton of space.
Pros: Performance, Style/Design, easy to use, Features/Settings, Quality
Summary: Overall I like the dishwasher. I enjoy the heating element is not exposed like in the older models. It cleans well, and is a quiet machine. It takes quite a while for the cycle though considering it is a newer model dishwasher. I also would never buy another dishwasher with the buttons on top of the door. If anything spills or leaks off the counter onto the buttons it makes them sticky and they are really hard to get cleaned so they dont stick anymore.
