Summary: I overpaid. I've owned this dishwasher for 3 years and it has never cleaned well and takes way too long. the plastic rollers are brittle and break easily as does the silverware rack. The guide rails for the upper rack also broke.
Summary: Love this dishwasher, the one we got was a display model, so it was half off. However after owning it for about a month now I would have no problem paying full price for it. It is so quiet we will be right next to it and not even know it's running. Also are dishes have never been cleaner. The space is abundant and the upet utensil rack is a great addition.
Pros: Attractive Design, Cleans Well, Easy To Load, Energy Efficient, Quiet, Simple Controls
Summary: the best part of this washer is: it is really really quite. At the same time wash is really good and clean. this is energy star machine and keeps us happy. Only the concern is it is a bit long wash cycle.
Excerpt: I have had the dishwasher for about a year. The dishwasher is very quiet and runs well. It has good mechanical features which would make it reliable. An example is the inverter controlled motor, which is backed by a long 10 year warranty. The manufacturers have confidence in their product. There is a list of well thought out design features. The main problem is he badly designed racks which make it very difficult to load dishes.
Excerpt: Dishwasher looks good, but we had this unit for almost 4 years. The top rack has rusted with in the first year. LG replaced it and the 2nd rack rusted as well. It does not heat the water like it should and no matter the detergent used, it leave all glasses spotted and unclean. Look elsewhere for a dishwasher.
Excerpt: It appears that to be energy effecient there is no built in heating element. This means that given the low volume of water used, if the dishwasher is very far from the hot water heater, the water will be luke warm. This will cause problems long term with buildup of the chemicals in the diswasher detergent. You will need to let your sink hot water run until it is hot to get the best performance.
Excerpt: I've had this dishwasher for over a year and I am not satisfied. My dishes are cloudy and many times do not get clean. I've had to hand wash in vinegar and water several times to get the dishes to look clean. Features available are pretty minimal. I had to purchase a "short" dishwasher due to the space in the cabinet, which did not allow me many choices in dishwashers.Beware of repair service providers- read the expected charges and warranty information...
