Summary: We have owned this dishwasher for over two years and have never had one single problem with it. We did buy it refurbished, so I feel like we got an even better deal given how incredible this thing works. The features are plentiful, however we usually just use Normal setting. Dishes come out clean. We use Finish tablet soap as well as Finish Rinse Aid. I am writing this review because I stumbled on this product here on Amazon and noticed the low rating.
Summary: We purchased this dishwasher in Dec 2011 and have used it everyday since and sometimes two times a day. We have never had a problem at all with this dishwasher. It is way better than the 6 year old Kenmore that we had. I bought this dishwasher because our old one just would not seem to clean the dishes not matter what I used for product in it. I make sure that I always use rinse aid with this dishwasher based on other reviews...
Summary: Purchased in summer 2010. I have replaced the heating element twice--essentially every twelve months. Now having pump problems--will not fully drain--requires extensive parts and labor to repair--simply not worth the time and money. Will carefully consider a replacement--not going to waste any more time or money on this appliance. I stongly recommend that any other LG appliance be avoided--I won't buy another LG product.
Summary: It is still early in its use. It is very quiet. I recommend scraping the crusty stuff off of everything before going into the dish washer. I also recommend using the heated dry. If you don't you will have to dry your items by hand. This will happen even after your items have been sitting in the dish washer overnight. I have not tried the steam setting nor just using the top washer.
Pros: Performance, Style/Design, easy to use, Features/Settings, Quality
Summary: We purchased this unit to complete the kitchen redo and wanted a quiet machine......about the only sound you hear is the chime at the end. Seems to take a little longer than our older machine, but uses less water and heat and still gets the dishes very clean. Need to get used to the rack arrangement but the capacity is excellent.
Summary: Im my 7th home I replaced the builders model with this LG. I cannot believe how quiet it is and with so many settings, I can custom each cleaning for efficiency. It also has lots of room to fit large loads. I am very happy that I purchased this LG dishwasher.
Summary: Short and Sweet. I have owned this DW for only a few months and the word that comes to mind is AWESOME. Dishes come out super clean and I barely hear it running. I had to open the door a few times to see if it was actually working. I am keeping my fingers crossed since I read the Consumer Reports Article after I bought the DW that they are prone to breakdowns more than 25 % repairs. Hope not.
Pros: Performance, Style/Design, easy to use, Features/Settings, Quality, super quiet
Summary: At first glance I thought this DW was higher end than I had budgeted. After the price I was quoted revealed it was indeed in my price range I was impressed with the features. Overall preferred the aesthetics of the LG appliances (I shopped an entire kitchen suite of appliances). The performance is impressive in super clean dishes and extraordinarily quiet operation. The steam faeture does remove all the sticky, baked on and day old food.
Pros: Performance, Style/Design, Features/Settings, Quality, value
Summary: Wow! Finally a dishwasher that GETS OUR DISHES AND GLASSES CLEAN! We were ready to throw our favorite glasses away until they went through a couple washes in this machine. Our careful research has paid off and this machine is more than expected. In fact, we are able to use the 'short cycle' 90% of the time and still get a high quality wash. The steam feature is a real bonus! In addition, it is whisper quiet. LOVE IT!
Pros: Performance, Style/Design, easy to use, Features/Settings, Quality, beauty
