Summary: This is without a doubt the worst dishwasher I've ever owned. Unless I use the strongest steam setting, the dishes come out dirty. My plates will not stand up when stacked - they lean over on each other. The folding tines fall down at the slightest touch.
Summary: I bought this upgraded steam dishwasher because it had a lot of room. We had it professionally installed and it immediately smelled awful. We had LG send a repairman out within 6 months of purchase and he advised that the bad smell was because of a design error that keeps the larger capacity...
Summary: I sent this review to Best Buy but they refused to publish it because it reveals that LG dishwashers are dangerous to your health. This review is based on facts. I have a background in science and scientific research.
Summary: There is no heating element to dry the dishes so the dishwasher interior is always wet. The dishes are not cleaned well in the "Normal" wash setting because the water does not get hot enough . My guess is that it uses too little water, 1.7 to 6.4 gallons total for 4 wash and 2 rinse cycles.
Summary: We just replaced out 10 year old Kitchen Aid Dishwasher with this LG only because the inside dish racks were rusted out of the Kitchen Aid. Based on a restricted counter height, the LG Dishwasher was one of the few we could replace it with.
BIGGEST PIECE OF GARBAGE DISHWASHER I HAVE EVER OWNED
21 April 2013
Summary: WORST APPLIANCE I HAVE EVER OWNED - I gave it one star because I couldn't find a way to give it Zero. I have never once had the dishes come out clean from this expensive unit. I had much better cleaning from my portable olive green dishwasher in the 1970s.
Summary: We are 8 months in and the drain pump just got replaced. Now its leaking, tech says its the steam generator. Floor around DW is warped. Been out of use coming on 3 weeks now. Tanks LG. LG knows about the pump failures, but won't recall.
Summary: This dishwasher is designed to fail. After only two years, one day it stopped working. It suffered a cascading failure: water caused an electronic part to short circuit, which caused the master board to burn. It would have cost more than $500 to repair.
