Summary: FULL DISCLOSURE - I don't have this model. I had an LDS 4821 WW. But it was the WORST DISHWASHER EVER!! A complete PIECE OF JUNK. Honestly - I cannot say enough bad about the LG dishwasher I purchased. So much for the efficiency rating - It doesn't clean anything.
Summary: Owned this dishwasher for eight months. Replaced the pump, soap dispenser and heating element. STILL does not clean dishes. Spoke to customer service and they informed me that the dishwasher is not designed to heat water only maintain heat.
Appalling Dishwasher would give negative rating if feasible

Summary: Looked nice and shiny when new after 14 months broke down. Service technician took a week to schedule and a week to order the replacement part and then a couple of days before it could be repaired. Failed about 3 weeks later, repaired again. Failed about 11 months later - same scenario.
Summary: I've had this dishwasher for just over one year. tomorrow will make the 5th time a repair man has come out to fix what is always the drain pump. consumer cannot get to it, as the unit has to be removed and placed on it's back. the drain pump has been replaced twice already.
Summary: Most reviews are done early in the ownership lifetime of the appliance. Here’s a longer run view of the design flaws that exist in LG dishwashers. I am replacing my high end LG dishwasher after less than two years of use.
Summary: I came across this while looking for parts (again) for this POS dishwasher. It's horrible. We had some code right after the warranty expired and it turned out to be the entire motor assembly in the bottom of the unit. That worked for a week, then the main board was dead and had to be replaced.
Summary: We bought 4 appliances thinking they will match and look really nice. HUGE MISTAKE LG Dishwasher is the BIGGEST piece of crap. It's been services 5 times and LG will not replace it. I have it completely rebuilt with pictures of the repair man and LOTS of boxes of new parts.
Excerpt: We bought all LG appliances when we bought our new home 6 years ago and have been very disappointed with all of them. This dishwasher barely cleans our dishes, all must be rinsed very well before putting in dishwasher otherwise expect yucky food residue on your dishes, silverware, and cups.
